    Have my eyes been deceived or am I seeing for the first time in the two months I've been peeking in here an actual starched shirt. Ye Gods, I think I am!. I love the starch; love ir, love it, love it. Mighty fine, C'Player. Pls don't say it ain't so.

    The jacket looks very nice on it's own, but NOT a good combo with those pants. The pants are just cut very poorly imho (and too dark for that jacket unless you switch to a much darker tie as well..)

    Trousers are too dark, trouser legs are too wide, boots need to be polished, and even then, those boots do not work with that outfit at all IMO.

    Don't judge me. It's hot, it's Friday and it's been a far longer 4 day week than it should have been. [​IMG]

    Thanks a lot, I had a lot of fun designing the lapels for that jacket. What I had in mind was Tom Ford kind of lapels and I'm pretty happy with the results.

    The tie is a personal challenge, green paisley isn't easy but I learned to like it. Thanks for the nice comment :)

    yea but thats almost trying to get me into your aesthetic which while I think looks terrific on you and your body type is not my cup of tea.. Im sorry, I personally would not wear 9 inch openings..I take critiques.. I have been critiqued for my monochromatic style of dressing, to slimness to now leg openings..I take what I think I can incorporate into my style to make work and if it does not I state so..so while I respect your stance (being that I consider you one of the consistent dressers pertaining to your steeze),,Ill stick with where I'm at..as for lapels I would like 4 inch lapels but Im dont want a whole wardrobe of them.. maybe a suit or two (of which I do have)..too me it seems to dangerous when anyone starts saying you need 4 inch lapels or 2.5 inch lapels atleast..4" lapels is too much in my opinion and very few people can pull it off without looking costumey..for most RTW the lapels will be between 3.25-3.7 inches and too me thats classic enough without being trendy..to have a wardrobe full of 4inch lapels I would most likely have to go MTM and while I do have some pieces that are MTM I will not being doing that for a whole wardrobe in order to have 4 inch lapels.. makes no sense..just my thoughts though..

    Thanks for the unambiguous feedback; after seeing the photographic evidence and hearing folks weigh in, I clearly need to take these pants back to the tailor for more tapering and a better job on the cuffs, which are a mess and screw up the drape.

    Presuming I can get the tapering/cuffs right, how (if at all) does one pair them? Deeper greys/browns? Are they a lost cause?

    Curious to hear more about the shoes, spitfirees20. They're a casual distressed leather (AE Neumoks) and not meant to be polished. Are they just too casual, or is there an additional level of incoherence?

    Thanks to all for weighing in.

    Sorry, I didn't understand what they were. In that case I think they're entirely too casual for this outfit. I'm not sure if it's the shirt or sport coat that really clashes with them (I'd have to see the outfit with different pants), but it looks like an odd mix of formal and informal.

    GMMcL, you had me until the black shoes. It doesn't ruin the look, but you're leaving money on the table.
