Bull shit!!!!!!!!!!!! Navy grenadine can do no wrong.
OK, well, I was going to say, first, that the notches are too turned up, but then that's not quite it. Neapolitan notches are also turned up but they look nice. What does it is the combination of belly + the turn-up + the very narrow fish mouth opening. I also think they are too narrow. They look "dated" to me though I cannot say what era, there is just something very odd about them.
My computer must be off, because the tie looks black to me.
Nice watch, and cloth.
There is a quite visible purple stripe.
Its navy blue grenadine with a purple stripe.
Ah, I saw the purple stripes, not sure why it looks so dark to me.
My thought was early '80s. The coat does look rather vintage, though that's not necessarily a bad thing. The shirt pairing is adding to the effect, I think.

Lufty, where is the shot of you without trou?
I noticed the same thing, but for some reason, to me it is charming.
The World's Best Blazer is clearly a vintage Oxxford, but it's all the better for it.

Whoa man ... calm down. It aint that serious. I think a solid navy grenadine is VERY different from a navy grenadine with purple stripes ... especially when there is patterns in the jacket, shirt and p/s. I think thats what Manton was trying to say. reduce a couple patterns and the top would have been awesome.
Spoo - to my eye, the cut of the jacket feels more "suity" than "sportscoaty" if that makes sense. Or maybe its my mind tricking me since i've seen you wear this as a suit several times. I'd also have gone with navy or really dark charcoal grey pents.
yes yes yes on all accounts... I have worn this blazersuit (allegedly) successfully with a navy cavalry twill pant before - I think it does work as a separate, but I see where you are coming from. I agree with you and Manton that there are too many patterns. c'est la vie.
