    Muchas gracias, Betel! And others too, I appreciate it.
    @Mhmt83 , others have already mentioned it, but that's about as strong a first post as I can remember having seen. Very nice!

    @ridethecliche actually that jacket is a touch too big for me (and I hate it when the sleeve gets caught on my watch like that...)

    Very well done, Cleav and Spandexter. That's a great tie, Cleav.

    Some amazing attire here, with many interesting ideas and combinations that I find frankly quite inspirational.

    My own today:

    Hackett suit, soft pink Turnbull and Asser shirt, Drakes dark blue tie, Drakes PS. C&J Audley black.

    Still new to the PS game. Was wondering slightly about this blue, but I [​IMG]wanted to add a slight bit of colour to offset the dark tie.

    I'm raining on the parade here, but this isn't a good fit. IMO. Looks like you're wearing separates from 2 suits- a blue and a brown. The jacket needs more SC features to define it as such- say contrast buttons. The pants appear to be worsted, so really should be part of a suit, never worn odd. The tie is a small patterned neat, a quintessential suit tie and not for an odd jacket fit either ... Likewise the semi-spread collar. Finally, there's not enough top/bottom contrast.

    Square is well chosen. I hope u keep posting - the colors, fit and silhouette are nice.

    @jfrater c'mon man, u know that's not good.

    jfrater, burn the tie. I'm actually a supporter of yellow ties but that one is just wrong.

    Jacket is nice.

    Just burgundy adelaides or all adelaides? I think of black and brown adelaides as being about as formal as semi-brogues or brogued balmorals (like G&G Westminster) and worsted appropriate.

    What don't you like about it? The shade or the pattern?

    When I put this on this morning (copying a 20 thumbs up fit from someone else) I knew it would get lots of negative comments. At least I know I can trust my judgement now :) Tomorrow I will do a million times better - promise!

    Hey, jfrater, would you mind posting the picture you copied your look from? I think it might be interesting to see the kind of look you were going for.

    Without giving away who it is, I will say that I think the picture you copied from provided more contrast, especially in the PS, and shirt color. I doubt I would have chosen the tie he did, but it does offer more contrast than the one you chose.

    Just burgundy. Specifically in that shade, which stands out too much for that particular outfit. A dark burgundy, dark brown or black would be fine.
    Love burgundy adelaides, but they're rather limiting. Not as much as spectators, tho :uhoh:
