    Not awful. I'd change the tie to something more casual as the jacket seems pretty casual in color and fabric (linen?). A knit would do the trick. The tie itself seems a little dated (the pattern). If you are so inclined, you could shorted the jacket sleeves a bit to show a little shirt cuff.

    I want to like this. I like this in my head. But I've decided to make my distaste for cotton trousers into a (n irrational) thing. In terms of slightly more productive advice, the shirt is a bit busy to work with a tie...or at least a non-solid tie. But it does remind me that I want an orange tie.

    I agree that the first jacket looks a tad bit short on you, but if it is longer IRL then it should be passable. The second jacket looks great, only (your) left sleeve looks a little short. Caught on a wrist watch? If not, I would lengthen the sleeve a little. Also, not a fan of french cuffs with tweed....

    Great suit and shoes!


    I will repeat the SF mantra - "Would look better with a light blue shirt". I also agree with Clags that the tie looks a little out of place with a casual linen jacket, it would work better with a suit.


    Not feeling the shirt in this context, a solid would be much better.

    Today: Test driving a new spring/summer jacket from Belvest that I picked up on eBay for basically pocket change. So far I am pretty satisfied with the fit right out of the box.

    Thank you for the feedback. I have just bought the tie this morning so wanted to try it out. I agree the shirt is a bit busy, especially now looking at the close-up. What would you suggest as a better alternative?

    Noted. Didnt quite look at the tie like that. Maybe I was just focusing on the colors. Will try again. Thank you

    Violating one of the sacred rules of sartorialism - I'm wearing loafers with a suit today. Shame on me.

    Those are some MAJOR lapels, Dr. Freud, but you seem to make it work - wear the new suit in good health!

    The jacket length on your past few fits is just right compared to some of your previous jackets which were a bit on a long side for me. A concerted effort?

    If RTW fits like this suit, you need no MTM or bespoke. Great look, my favorite one of many good fits from you.

    I prefer Holdfast's suitsupply stuff than his bespoke 10 times out of 10. They just flatter his body more but I can understand wanting to look ultra conservative in his other gears.

    Very nice suit! Seems to fit well already, though there seems to be something funky going on with the right shoulder. Or is that just because of the way you're standing?

    Thanks, I am going to have them replicated by luxire in several different colors/fabrics.

    I post every now and then. I work a ridiculous amount of days and I am required to wear fire resistant jeans and shirts, so it is not often that I get to wear my nice clothes.

    Thanks Stitchy.

    Dress at this event varied greatly, I wasn't the only one there wearing a tie so I did not feel out of place. That is actually my father, both of her parents are from Vietnam. Thanks for the compliment.

    Thank you Holdfast, I will try to post more often.

    An attractive and interesting suit! It's a great fit. I like the length of the coat. But, the right shoulder is peaking up slightly. Maybe it is due to the way you are standing or the angle of your arm.
