    Hello all, after joining the forum over the last couple of days I've just spent a copious amount of time going through this thread.

    Still have a lot to learn so any tips will be much appreciated.

    Also, only being 21 I haven't spent a great deal of time collecting, or really needing ties, so after trying a couple on thought it was better to go without.

    Jacket - new and lingwood
    Shirt - TM Lewin
    Trousers - MTM (although I think a little short( from a friend, and designer in India

    Seems like it, yeah. :lol:
    +1.
    Yeah, I understand. Dark loafers? Combining dark color + casualness.
    This knot definitely needs taming.
    That's a really unusual lapel/collar shape. Did you choose it specifically (and why)?

    I never would have thought of spit-shining Alden 403s. In fact, I won't. Also, I think the jacket, in this context, is too fussy. A rare miss, for me, from Victor.

    Very nice, Clags. Getting rid of that tie is on the long list of my sartorial mistakes.

    @Emilsingh, very hard giving feedback on your outfit. We need better light + preferably, a better angle. Try using a timer to take your picture. Place the phone at ~waist height, 3-4 meters away.

    With that said, from what can be seen, those trousers are letting down the entire outfit. It's probably hard to hear, if they're made by a friend of yours, but they're un-salvageable. They look to be made for someone a lot shorter than you + the rise is way too low, by any standards. Keep posting though, and I promise you will improve.

    I'll make sure to work on the lighting thing and the picture times.

    Haha yes no I completely agree with you on the trousers, I really need to buy more trousers but having a hard time finding ones which suit me. I'll keep posting for more feedback though, with different trousers! Thanks again
