    Ah, yes, you’re right. Does totally depend on the tone. :)

    A three piece kind of day where the weather was a little cool for this time of the year in the valley with some minor pattern interplay..

    I love this jacket/suit but am unsure how to pair it. The sleeves still have to be lengthened.

    Just keep the wolfs away, the feet on the ground.

    I would recommend a bili chain, assuming you have demonstrated confidence and proficiency at home during practice. Any unflattering pairings will be overlooked as attention is directed toward the bili.

    I wouldn't go so dark on the pants, lighter shade of blue for the shirt, and a dark, solid tie with some texture.

    Yeah, I was thinking black grenadine. Were you thinking lighter grey for the pants, or maybe tan/brown?

    Either could work.

    Always a pleasure to see you in this suit. While I'm not averse to wearing loafers with a suit, I'd personally opt to complete this fit with dark brown suede chukkas. Not sure if you own such a pair of shoes, but just a thought.

    And at this point, I should offer a word of apology. Now that I've commenced giving you feedback, it seems to be turning into a habit. Truly, it's because I admire your style. While I never see you in what I'd consider a fail, some fits just cry out for a little tweak in my mind's eye, and I feel compelled to offer an opinion at these times.

    While I don't post fit pics nearly as often as you, I'm always open to constructive critique from anyone who cares to contribute. When it comes to my feedback, I always try to offer it in a particularly respectful way if it's for the first time to a member who is widely regarded to know what they are doing. I try to make it clear to all whom I offer advice that this is where I'm coming from.

    In terms of actually applying advice received about fits posted, sometimes it's not possible even when one wishes to do so. Admittedly, while I have a respectable wardrobe for my own purposes, not all suggestions can be acted on where particular items are not owned, and I realise this is true for others also. It's a reality even among some of the biggest wardrobes. Such wardrobes may be heavy on some items/styles and light on others, as governed by personal tastes and other factors.

    @Epicure
    Your critique is most appreciated, and I thank you for spending your time to consider my outfits.
    Yesterdays attire is the result of the need for variation and the somewhat challenging weather condition; cold morning and heated midday. Chukkas would make me boil, but I see your point, and in fall I gladly go for that option.

    And I agree, many of my outfits are not 100%, neither as attires nor as I'm able to put them together.
    I guess I'm 85 - 90%, so keep on commenting.
