    And I have the exact opposite opinion - sorry Cary G! :worship:

    To me it would have worked better if the trousers were either just barely off white or navy. Something about the current trousers is just a bit meh for me.

    Perhaps a shoe with a little more interest would have helped as well - it's bit 'busy on top' and 'bland on bottom'.

    Not that it's bad or anything - just might be stronger with some tweaks.

    There - now you have to conflicting opinions - what could be more helpful than that!!!! :D

    Well it actually is a waistcoat from another suit,this was the first time i was trying to do this,if i'll like this style i may get more waistcoats but i think checked or other color waistcoat differentiating heavily from the suit will make it too casual,no?Also i wear sometimes suit jackets and pants as separates,mostly plain ones,may be it's a deadly sin here but it's ok for me :)
    Also i would appreciate very much some feedback on suit,fit and generally to overall attire(tie,shirt,ps),because I'm quite new to this and would like some recommendations.

    I know you like your patterns, HF, but I think the top part is just too busy now. I hope you don't mind me doing this:



    I think it makes the outfit a bit more balanced. Qu'est-ce que vous en pensez?

    Very fine Tom Ford suit Spoo, would be curious to see how black wingtips rock with that outfit.

    i need to figure out something else to do with my pocketsquare (i bought that off a member here who rolled the edges himself)

    i had been wearing the sportscoat with jeans only before today
    tried pairing the SC with navy pants for the first time
    i think it's just ok... i need to figure out a better color combo

    The pants are off. They are too full around the leg and slightly too long. I really like the coat--is it Isaia bamboo?

    Tobacco Man - The tie looks like Hermes

    It may be the photo, but the bottom portion of your pants looks odd. Maybe a smaller leg opening and/or hem the bottom a bit may help with the issue. The jacket appears to be fuller cut and rather roomy and you appeared to be rather skinny in your photo, I'd would suggest visiting a tailor and have it slim down but that depend upon your personal taste and the purpose of your wear.
    Thank you for reading and I hope my constructive criticism does not offend you, otherwise my apology is present in advance.

    I can't get into this whole like button thing yet, so sorry for the long multi.


    Thanks man. The suit is a vintage Tom Ford for Gucci. It had some extensive work done to it, but its one of my favorites. I bought it on B&S for $100 shortly after I joined, can you believe?


    Oh yeah.


    I certainly appreciate that man. Hold on to your seat for fall then if you like SB PL's :)


    Another valiant effort, but I am just not feeling this, H. I don't think that really any other patterns should be used when playing around with this suit, save for a floral PS to balance the geometry in the jacket/pants. On the plus side, this gives you free reign to dance around with the color. I think this would be totally awesome as a suit, with a pale pink tie and a hunter green tie. But thats me. :)


    Thanks - and yeah, perhaps the next time.


    Thank you kind sir - Ermenegildo Zegna.
