    Ok, ok, lesson learned. I will post some redeeming CBD up here soon. My outfit was wild but I still enjoy it on occasion (which in the end is all that really matters). I think that I did not realize the level of conservatism expected of outfits posted to SF even though I have been creeping on here for some time quietly. I enjoy the forum interaction and watching other peoples style so I am not beating a dead horse just extending my apologies for being an uptight opinionated man (aren't we all though to some extent). I really hate apologizing, it makes me feel weak but it may be necessary at times.


    On the other hand… Erik I see you are in Sweden so if you ever change your mind visit Eton.

    Edit: Whoops. Forgot my sunglasses in the pocket by mistake!
    Also forgot the pocket square this morning but that wasn't all that bad.

    The tie is pretty formal, the shirt is not. The blazer is pretty formal, the pants are not. I'm not even going to get into color coordination issues. I like the glasses!

    For srs?

    I thought navy blazers were fine to wear with a pretty wide spectrum of pants. Cream khaki's in this case. Would you have felt better about it had they been patch pockets on the blazer?

    That said, I think I've found the tie I'll wear for interviews with a navy suit. I'll be getting a spread collar shirt for that though

    I like the glasses too though. They're fun! My first pair of RX sunglasses.

    Well, they are to some extent, but they're not infinitely casual. If you want it to be more acceptable with wrinkled chinos, swap the gold buttons for something more casual. Overall, the formality of your outfit varies from piece to piece, so it ends up looking somewhat disharmonious.

    You really shouldn't wear that tie with a blue shirt. The tie and shirt are way too similar in colour. You should reserve it for a white shirt, which means you can only wear it with a suit or with blues and greys.

    I was thinking about that. I do have a white shirt I could swap when I'm wearing a suit so it might work.

    Noted about the shirt/tie. I thought I'd read a comment earlier last week to someone (ETB?) that having a stripe in a color close to a blue shirt could work well so I tried out that combo.

    Poco y poco.

    Back to lurking.

    I suppose it could work if it's a very small stripe. Anyway, having a tie with similar colours to your shirt makes them blend together. It can also come off as if your tie is full of holes. Just make sure your tie is always significantly darker than your shirt, and save the lighter ties for later on.

    The lapels seem to be bowing some, but I think it is interesting that the lapels, the collar and the tie all create an interesting bowing out trend. I am not sure how I feel about that, but it is an interesting observation.

    It's the camera angle. Looks a bit like a fish-eye lens effect.

    Also, I still think your tie knot in your avatar is horrendous. Egad, child.

    @aglose - yeah, I see what you mean, methinks its the angle. I've purposely fanned out the tie's smaller blade and unbuttoned the collar to spread it a little wider as well. That might contribute to the 'bowing' effect.

    The 3rd pic shows the fit best.
