    Would not have done specs. The color of the vest is a bit off. But for someone your age, I assume you are still in high school, this is very passable.

    Both might work and white / cream as well.
    Not bad, but the tie is too long and the shoes look too casual for a jacket+tie combo.
    I think your face is too broad for a skinny tie. Experiment with a thicker but slim tie.
    Last time somebody posted a blazer + tie with jeans in SW&D, he ended up getting banned. Tread lightly, young wannabe... [​IMG]
    Thank you all for your suggestions! I shall definitely try to incorporate these suggestions into my WAYWT pic tomorrow. For the time being:
    Playing with new camera [​IMG] Should I post this in the CBD thread? Or should I have buttoned my jacket for that?
    You are awesome. I have never seen those type of jeans done that well.
    I changed into a solid navy twill tie after seeing the pics. I was trying to pick up the brown from the shoes up north, but I didnt love how it came out. Did I make the right move? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG][/SPOILER]
    I think this picture is why you shouldn't abandon sportcoats. You can't do this with suits! [​IMG]
    Today was a go sans blazer kind of day, so i threw on a nice pair of maroon braces to frame my tie. [​IMG]
    This is frickin' badass.

    Specs removed. I actually rather like that the waistcoat is a contrasting shade of blue.

    Thanks for this. I think you're right that the fit of the suit is off a bit. There are a few reasons and some you already mentioned. -Button stance is a bit off at times due to the original design based on buttoning the bottom button. I changed it after realizing that was a mistake. Still need to add an inner button so that it doesn't pull like it does. That'd fix a lot of the button stance problem. -Pants were because I wanted something very loose and comfortable. I think you're right that I should have had a higher rise. The jacket itself might have been better off slightly shorter with how tightly it fits on top. -Lastly, I made it last year and I'm the dumb guy that gained shoulder mass and worked on my lats the whole time. I think ALL of my suits fit slightly off these days. Here's the robot pose: You never fail to disappoint. Thanks again.
    - phew as I was wondering if I was the only one not drinking from the cool aide. - re the current pants, maybe slim down a cm if you want to keep this length otherwise let it down so there is a slight break - re the current jkt, I would not shorten anymore
    a decadent mix of textures and patterns PG.
    - doing my best
    I was generally going to be much harsher but I think Parker's comments are more constructive. The shirt needs to go as do the french cuffs. A daylight picture might soften my thoughts but I don't really care for the madras-y colored tie either.
    - let me be harsh: - Crusty, you need to stick with blue toned shirts & suits to match your skin tone - try & simplify your outfits as they are at times on the verge of baroque
    Isn't it summer? BTW a great combination.
    - Antipodes
    In light of seersucker appreciation day, I'll re-post here a combination that largely went unnoticed on the CBD thread when I wore it Monday:
    - SS done GOOD
    ..
    - you consistently dress appropriate for your context
    I thought Phat in Japan
    - negative
    Another attempt at a casual fit. After looking over the pictures I am not sold on the shoes. Too much blue?? Comments please!!
    - too blue, maybe white bucks or Common Projects?
    Casual today for class... Also, I apologize for the crappy pics (the pattern on the shirt is pink and blue). I'll fix that next time.
    - you need slimmer pants
    Recently read an old SF article about "The Italian Background," and tried to give it a shot today. Fit suggestions? Color palette? Thanks in advance.
    - interesting, which SF article
    In Spoo's universe this might be CBD

    - if I was to nit pick, too much going on with the jkt. Maybe next time no hacking or no ticket. - your pants are the weak point - FWIW I'm not picking on you, but have been where you are going through
    ..
    - your shirts consistently let you down
    Thought I'd make my first WAYWN post with what I wore to prom last night:
    - good stuff & welcome
    Lame pics, but I was jazzed about these new pants:
    - nice cloth. Saw something similar from LP in double faced cashmere
    thanks for the feedback B. never knew this (the angling piece). is there a rationale for that? sprezz? off to spend a 1000 dollars on a safety pin (not!!).
    - BB & RL sell them for a couple of $$
    Today was a go sans blazer kind of day, so i threw on a nice pair of maroon braces to frame my tie.
    - braces.. lose the belt loops. - otherwise you wear your clothes well​

    This looks pretty good. For some reason (probably just the photograph itself), I like it more than your usual jacket/jean pants combos.


    - B


    Thanks, Vox. Maybe you like cotton jackets better than wool jackets with jeans. And the dark blue shirt probably looks more casual than light blue('?)s.



    You are awesome. I have never seen those type of jeans done that well.

    Thanks, they're (new) standard APC's. Washed the hell out of.

    Thankful for the nitpicking and I agree that my trousers are where I have a lot of trouble. Sometimes I wish I had skinnier legs since it'd make everything much easier.

    Wow, nice! C&J shoes? I was thinking about getting a pair of Loake Blackfriars, but they look a bit out of shape? Is that a jumper over a suit?! Don't get it, but it works well!

    I like the suit and tie, Spoo. I wish the shoes were lighter (weight and color) and the shirt's pattern weren't so fussy. To my eye, that multi-stripe is fighting with the overall vibe of the fit.

    The buttoning point on the jacket seems weird to me, 'sheep, almost like it's halfway between where the "one" and "two" buttons would be on a three-button suit. Maybe it's the angle of the pic.

    Yeah, I agree about the shoes. Was going to do a polo suede but changed my mind at the last minute. Don't know why. The shirt I really like with the fit though. [​IMG]
    Suit/tie are "dry" shirt/ps are "wet". I thought it had good balance.

    I am going to comment on your fit for the next few days, don't take it personal please, you just seem to be in flux given your sportcoat MC threak.

    In tis outfit, the shirt/tie and shoes are wrong. This suit was a perfect opportunity to wear teh sockless loafer look you sometimes do. Also, with such a sedate suit, throw on a nicely striped shirt, blue bengal/red bengal etc. Lastly, a nice knit tie or linen or raw silk would have been better, in a shade that is not in the brown family.

    Thought I'd make my first WAYWN post with what I wore to prom last night.

    Very dapper; about as good a (first) post as I think it's possible to make.

    ... too short, as are my coat´s sleeves...

    true. colours are nice though.

    I was jazzed about these new pants

    They are quite funky, it's true. Could be a lot of fun, worn on the right occasions.

    [​IMG]

    bathroom pic? you're one of us now...

    Today was a go sans blazer kind of day, so i threw on a nice pair of maroon braces to frame my tie.

    It looks good. But I think it would be even better with a jacket draped over a nearby bit of furniture, waiting to be put back on later. [​IMG]

    Sweet photo. Hope you both had fun!

    [​IMG]

    Nice (new?) suit. Is it linen or a silk/linen blend? Good colours too. May steal them. [​IMG]






    Me looking distinctly displeased at an uncommonly early start to the day, and one full of appointments at that...
