    Perfect, except for the shoes; but still!

    I agree. I know it's a personal thing but I really don't like the shoes much at all, neither the croc parts or the fancy stitching. But everything else is perfect, and I am sure the gaz enjoys the shoes himself.

    +1 on enjoyment

    -1,000 on the notion of perfection.

    Loafers in summer with a cotton or linen suit look better IMO.

    You don't like subtle, understated shoes?

    The rest are fine but Oxxford makes such bloody boring suits.

    You don't pull your punches, do you? I might have said it more politely, @DerekS , but I do agree that the suit doesn't thrill me. I think that the jacket could do with some more shape, and I'd maybe perhaps taper the pants a little and add cuffs (although that may not be possible).

    Very nice items, but I don't think these all work together. I think darker shoes (dark brown or black) would look better with this suit. I also think the bag looks too informal for such a suit. Still looking good though.

    I really don't see anything wrong with the suit IMO. It is structured and has nice waist suppression and the pants are tapered enough IMO. Different opinions makes the forum interesting though...

    Yeah, I don't think there's anything wrong with it (unlike Spectre), just room for improvement. I would just add, though, that @DerekS has posted a lot more of an 'honest' picture than some do here, which means it's easier to see how the suit actually looks IRL. It's not set-up, posed or angled for maximum flattery. More people should do this and worry less about getting enormous numbers of likes.
