Spoiler: crummy light full fit
Wait, first tou say it is a sharp contrast but now it isn't because th suit is lighter than navy?
HI. What exactly was wrong with the fit on my first attempt?
Missed the first attempt, so can't say anything about that, but here I would say that the suit looks nice, but is maybe a little bit too "generous". It could definitely use some more waist suppression, to shape the jacket a little more. Also, the shoulders look a little too wide to me, but that could also be because they are rather structured. I would also consider slimming sleeves a little, and make sure that they are of the same length - there is something funny with the (your) left arm, where the jacket sleeve is notably shorter that on the right. Low left shoulder perhaps?. Anyway, an easy fix for a tailor. Trousers also look like they could use some slimming, not much but perhaps a little tapering towards the ankles will improve the over all look. Tie and square will probably not get a lot of love here, colours are a little too bright and shiny for my taste, at least. Also, I would tighten the knot more, so no shirt is visible above.
He should change his name to "Franz", just to clear things up.
This is really nice.
Here you could pull up the tie a bit (so that it covers the neckband of the shirt), maybe shorten the trousers a tad. Also, tie and square seem a bit shiny, but that might be the photography.
Couldn't be bothered with a tie today...

A great relaxed look, @Pingson. I especially like the shade of trouser. Are they minnis flannel from Luxire?
Great collar! Luxire?
Thanks @SeaJen. It's a pair of Borrelli OTR, so I don't know the source of the fabric. But I actually have a pair from Luxire in the light-grey Minnis flannel, and they are very similar in colour but perhaps a little sturdier and not as soft as the Borrelli trousers.
More cowbell lapel!
Tell that to Ralph, and tell him I think so too.....

It's snowing worse today than it was a day and a half ago. Suddenly these three layers seem woefully inadequate.
