    I like it @An Acute Style , but the shoes and jacket combo... too matchy, no? Wouldn't have picked those socks for the same reason.

    I tried on five other pairs of shoes and four other pairs of socks, before I just had to go. Don't disagree with you.

    I think with such a low contrast fit and so few "staple" items, being a bit "matchy" can be a good thing. These kind of looks can easily get away from you (by which I mean anyone), but this is quite nice IMO.

    It happens. Do you have any socks with polka dots? I think that might have been more playful?

    As far as shoes, I think tassle loafers would have been baller here.

    I really like AAS's fit a lot but don't think tassle loafers would've beeen the best option. I'd like to see the fit in white bucks and I know he can pull it off.

    Panama hat will also be a good added bonus.

    Not digging the pocket square or the way that tie is laying, but the rest looks great!

    Sure those are another good option. Spectators as well.

    (You just don't like tassle loafers :/)

    I just feel white bucks will look better. I don't even own one but I have two tassle loafers.

    Bums in wheelchair's? Man that's depressing.

    The man IS head to foot in East coast trad, one expects a bit of elitism right?

    I think this might be one of those times when I don't need to specific "feedback is welcome," but nevertheless...

    I'm sorry AAS but this is bad. Everything seems washed out, and the items you chose to match heightens this.

    This is one of them "come on dawg" outfits
