    That is one seriously blue jacket. I don't know that anything about this look works well; it all comes across as very "Vegas". I might feel differently if you were wearing a tie, or it might have made you look even more likely to burst into a rendition of "Volare".

    Thanks, guys. I am very much alive. I have been lazy as hell lately and have been going casual most of the time. LOL. I was lucky enough that someone snapped a pic of this and sent it to me. :)

    I dislike this.
    The pants are too long.
    The shirt pattern and the jacket pattern creat chaos and do not match.
    Those wide lapels do not bode well with his tiny stature.

    It's a look, and one I don't entirely get, but within what he's trying to accomplish, his pants are indeed too long and way too much shirt cuff is showing.

    Well I'll live and learn. I think the shirt/tie/square doesn't work well, just didn't have time to change, but do you think it's bad coupled with dark/black trousers? I was going to just go with raw denim instead with a white shirt, but I thought this could work. I get the sense a high contrast outfit is not what you mean when you say it "could" work, though, and I can't exactly imagine how else it can be done in this shade unless it's textured.


    It doesn't absolve me if I said I was going to a casino, does it?

    Worth a shot.


    What is off about the fit? I had it bespoke, so I'd like to have a better idea for next time.

    along with all of his neats?


    yes, its bad with the trousers. outside of a midnight dinner jacket, and maaaaaaaaybe with the right gray SC, i see no use for black dress pants in MC.

    when i say it could work, i mean with the right hue of gray trousers and a light blue shirt OCBD or spread collar with a proper tie.

    The Return of the Mike! Good to see you.
    Pants aren't quite slim enough to stack, so they just look too long. Shirt sleeves also a bit long. Overall, I think you've slipped over the precipice from louche to sloppy.
    I think a university stripe would have been nicer here, G.

    How are people supposed to know that you are a ruthless, blood-sucking attorney if you don't attire yourself properly in the requisite power suit?
