    I should temper my earlier post. A light blue shirt would be much better with this outfit. The shirt seems a poor color for your complexion, but it may be better in another context.

    Nice, one of your best yet. If it were my coat, I might have put a little more shape in the body, but I know the aesthetic you're going for, so it works. I like the tie, but with the DB, I think it could stand an extra inch or so in width. Well done. Even the non-black shoes.


    This looks great. Not a fran of stacking, but works for you.

    My jacket is better but somewhat off kilter still. I must say I have a new appreciation for this posting of one's fits. It's kinda hard. :embar:

    I like it, though I think it'd be better with a sky blue shirt.


    Thanks. I thought about shaping the coat more too, but my tailor recommended against it, so I listened. Tie would be wider, ideally.

    She's wrong, and nice links.
    I'm not sure it's right for me, but I really like that tie, Crust.
    I think I have to second (third?) Mike and Nii's call of incongruousness. I noticed that both you and AJV were rocking reddish-brown shoes with the red pants. I'm not sure this is the best choice. At least in the pics, they come off as close but not close enough.
    I like the DB, and I also don't know what the non-Americans are on about with their dislike of brown/burgundy shoes with suits.
    The tie and suit textures don't play well together. The shirt, IMO, is an abomination. I think I can make out the concept you were going for, but I don't think this achieves it.
    IIRC, Alan Flusser has a similar combination in Clothes and the Man. I don't care for it there, either.
    Mo' betta.

    The colors do well together.

    Merci, Le Roi Soleil - it is not often that my poor name is linked with our new and most exuberant poster from Mother Russia (I like most of what Viktor wears, and he certainly "owns" his style), and our resident bespoke expert PG.


    Way kewl as always, Spoomeister, but very odd to see you wearing nothing patterned - an anomaly, a handsome anomaly, but unusual nonetheless.

    Thanks, Kevin - today's attire came together better than expected.


    Wider tie, longer collar, better look.


    Thanks, Mr. Butch

    Not in the least- clean and crisp up top, the bottom is looser, fuller, and the casual rolled cuff. Not bad but could been a home run.

    The problem with Kevin's look becomes really apparent in black-and-white:

    The shirt and suit blend together, and the tie is lighter than the shirt.
