    The wool of the tie was jarring against the gingham shirt, to my eye.

    Gray wool looks like fall/winter to me, and blue-white gingham speaks of summer.

    Much better Derek. No tie cool. Plain navy tie (same colour as shirt) probably. Grey tie. No.

    Your neck is nekkid!!!!!!!!! :facepalm:

    I've called the 'decency league' they'll be by shortly to write you a citation.

    Much better mang - that tie was not werkin' for you. The more I thought about it I also remembered I'm ordering a chestnut/caramel colored silk grenadine tie for just this same combination - forgot to mention that one perviously (pun).

    The lack of tie is compensated for by nicely-fitting jacket.

    I've noticed that you often choose dark pants with a light colored sport coat. I think your outfits could be improved with pants lighter in color than the coat. I know Manton and others are not huge fans of grey sport coats, but I think they can sometimes look good with light tan pants. It's just finding that right shade of tan.

    funny, because i actually prefer a pocket on my shirts. I take my jacket off when i get to my office and need a place to keep my pen when im walking around my building. Its not a huge deal, but if given a choice id probably pick a shirt with a pocket

    Thanks for the suggestion :) I think you could be onto something. I definitely need to widen the colour palette a bit where trousers are concerned.

    Dressing in a rush sucks. This is not how I wanted to debut these new kicks.

    Lufty, I like that earlier sack suit a few pages back. Looks like a good vintage. Who made that one?

    I think you need extended shoulders as all of your jackets make you look wide in the hips, I'd go custom as suggested and ask your tailor for extended shoulder to make you look top heavy.

    because he looks like pear and needs extended shoulders and I assume no OTR works for him.
