    Tim, good that you are posting.
    Wider trousers aren't a bad thing but they do need a sharp crease. This would benefit your silhouette by making the look less boxy.
    Taking the picture from an higher angle will also help.

    Good stuff Sander but the shoes are too light for the suit imo.

    Very nice, Braddock. You're flipping the bird at winter with those trousers.;)

    It depends on the shade of red, in my opinion. Bright colors are tough to pull off in "good taste". Bellow are some picture of Mark Cho, which, in mi opinion, has worn a red blazer in good taste. It looks so good to me that I actually almost fooled myself into commissioning one, in spite of having a lot of traditional shades in different materials to catch up with Mark.

    25 years old tie received from my father, a tad too slim for my tastes, but I quite fancy colours and pattern.

    Damnit Kulata! You can't just show us small teasers like that. That suit demands a full fit pic!

    The weather outside is nasty and I tried with indoor lights and it was horrible but will show a full fit soon.

    Ooooh. This is a fun debate! I really like the sharp contrast. I think its really a ymmv kind of thing. I have a hard time saying its objectively good or bad looking, but it always gets lovers and non-lovers.


    Do it now!

    When it comes to formal attire (like that lovely DB suit) sharp contrasts between footwear and trousers go against my sense of feng shoey.

    I hear ya, but the tie is not all that formal, and the suit color is lighter than navy, so it all comes together for me.

    I really like this shade of blue with this shade of brown. In this outfit it also balances top and bottom: the tie is equally light.

    Vintage suit from the 1940´s. Price $12:50. (The fact is, I bought two almost identical suits for $25)
