    ....
    The shirt/tie/pocket square combination is not working for me. Perhaps a plain white shirt would look more crisp? The brilliantly patterned PS clashes with the stripes--to my eye. With that PS, I'd try a tie that picks up one of the more subtle colors in the PS. (Red?) The jacket is too short.

    Thanks for the advice, I was going for the blue in the PS to match the blue in the shirt. I'll try again with another blazer, tie and shirt today [​IMG]

    The weather for the next two days in NYC is predicted to be rain, with chance of rain, and a side order of rain, so the fits for the next couple of days may not be particularly exciting. Somehow, I know you'll all have the fortitude to cope . . .

    FWIW, then . . .

    Well then that should attest and cement that you should only use your powers of influence for good, and that I am not completely resistant to direction (despite what some may say [​IMG] )

    The rest of the advice was good, and obviously helped. The whole arm thing helps too, and was easy for me to accept because it's very similar to other things that I've had to do in my time as a performer.

    - was kidding
    Figured I might as well give some WAYW love to black footwear...
    - me too

    ^This is a classic look. I think I've said this before, but I like the spread collar on you.

    ^Really great, HF. The DBs suit you. Overall color scheme is really nice too. The red ps adds a great pop.

    [​IMG]

    ^Please pm me for my address to send me the tie.

    [​IMG]

    ^You do slim fit better than anyone else I've seen. You are consistently killin it.

    [​IMG]

    ^Red pants are killer.

    I think both the buttoning point & the trousers suit you well.

    ^Thx, UC.

    Should I cuff these pants or just have them hemmed?

    Frankly, I'd invest in a decent pair of light grey summer wool trousers. IMO khakis are hard to pull off and tend to bring down a look and I think they are kind of having that effect here. Also, wool ties aren't the best for warm weather. Especially if you sweat a lot (like me).

    i know right ... i see NYR avoiding the post like the plague ... lol.

    Uninspired Tuesday

    i like it though. pants may be a touch fuller than my personal preference, but you look good in it.

    bossy - in every sense of the word!!

    ROBOTuesday.

    - you promised a softball and delivered.
    - jacket + pants are not jiving. jacket/pants + shoes are not jiving. shirt/tie + jacket/pants are not jiving. bottom line its hard to pull off a khaki odd jacket in a "business casual + tie" fit.
    - i would rock it as a suit to gain more harmony, or swap out the pants for more of a chino (preferably a blue chino). example posted below:

    CBD Tuesday. Collar's a mess, but it's completely devoid of fusible so I can never get it to look as sharp as I want. Tomorrow: People's Court taping.

    ^ Thanks Nii. Though this one felt good to me, I suspected I might get a bit of backlash here. The khaki odd jacket has proven difficult for everything but jeans. And I have resisted pairing this shirt with the easy gray combo so I can see how else I can integrate it. 'Preciate the feedback. Spoo - Great cufflinks. I. Have. A. Plan.... PG - Lately your pocket squares have stood out to me as much as anything else. The fine patterns you have selected make them more subtly complementary than more obvious, bolder choices. If that makes any sense..

    I really like the look Spoo. Looks great!

    But is that an example of Tom Ford's trademark collar gap?

    ^They are teh result of a few MTM orders I placed with various local stores. I like the higher rise, but I went with a slightly slimmer leg from a different maker which should be ready soon so I'll be interested to compare.

    Back to work.

    ^I'll like the shirt/tie combo, but not really a fan of the fabric on the suit (looks kind of dated to me, but may be the washed out pics) and the skinny lapels.

    Doc, good as usual.

    Do you live in the backwoods somewhere?


    It's wooded, but I wouldn't consider it the backwoods.

    This jacket appears to be a size too large for you.

    Converse, Nudie, Ettemadis bespoke, Suitsupply RTW, Kent Wang, Filson.


    The backlighting and washed out photos make this hard to judge. But I feel that the small scale stripes on the shirt don't balance well with the POW pattern.

    [In re: Spoo] I'll like the shirt/tie combo, but not really a fan of the fabric on the suit (looks kind of dated to me, but may be the washed out pics) and the skinny lapels.

    I agree with NDW on the lapels, Spoo. they're a bit anemic looking in the context of the whole outfit. Your shoulders seems to be reasonably broad and the lapels simply look a touch out-of-place.

    …funny to think that I was really into the slim lapelled look even a year ago. Now, I enjoy seeing them only on a 60s styled sack coat.
