Hi Guys,

Recently bought this Navy suit, what do you think of it & of pairing it with the brown tie/shoes?

PS - Sorry about the dirt on the mirror!

Cheers.

Edit - Will upload new image, with timer!

^ Those shoes are not good. I wouldn't pair them with the suit - much too casual, and not particularly stylish if you want my opinion. Either a nice brown (or black) oxford would be much, much better. Trousers may benefit from slimming, but it's hard to tell with the pic.

^^^^ +100 - the shoes are not designed to be worn with a suit - much too casual. Ditto on some tapering of the trousers as well (check the length as well - they seem a bit long).

The shirt/tie combination is OK, IMHO, though I am hardly a fan of brown ties.

Nice fit. I like the narrow lapels on that suit. Those shoes are way out of place though. I think it would look great with black cap toe balmorals, walnut wingtips or even maybe to a lesser extent chili split toes.

Thanks Guys,

The shoes were pretty much to hand when I took the shot. I just wanted to get a feel for brown shoes with the suit, not necessarily those particular shoes.

Cheers.

For a proper critique I think you should have some more photos with a level camera taken at different angles without holding a camera.

I think we should also have a pinned "Critique my suit" thread. There are 10 new threads with this each day.
