    I like the trad look as much as anyone. Hell, probably more than most. However not all of their ideas were good and not everything classic is appealing to me.

    Agreed on the fit issues, btw.

    bottom half is killing it. LOVE the trous. The top half is far too busy for me and (IMHO) nothing seems to go together.

    Thanks you for the bottom, for the top part, I don't agree with you, green sport jacket with a blue/brown Tattersall and a burgundy madder tie is pretty classic, but in my opinion if nothing seems to go together, is because of my miss try with this pocket square.

    FWIW @TheoProf, I can't think of a better combination than tweed and chinos. Whatever avenue of logic @Caustic Man has gone down in his own brain to arrive at disliking it is entirely personal, unique and unusual. Plus he said it himself. I'm not sure what I'd do if I couldn't wear chinos with tweed! (I have to admit I own no actual tweed... but I want to! haha)

    if the coat were solid then yes it would go with the shirt just fine. But its not and it doesnt. Again, The scale of the tie and the shirt are too close and dont go well. Everything youre saying is pretty correct, youre execution is just poor. No offense. The tie and jacket MIGHT be able to be worn together, but its hard to tell with the shirt.

    but yeah, the square is defnintely a miss too.Swap the shirt and square and it would be a big improvement.

    Last day for tweed and flannel (and hopefully flurries)...wearing a shantung tie, which is wrong with this fit, but best for my sanity seeing snow this morning. Spring will return.

    These are @luxire with a bit of local tailoring. I have decided as much as I like the idea of button cuffs at the bottoms, I like the correct length better. I will be getting all my future orders un-hemmed and tailored locally.

    I wouldn't say it's all that unusual.
