I love wearing suits but it would look inappropriate to wear one every day so I’ve decided on the middle option of wearing smart trousers (wool not jeans or chinos) and smart shirts from the likes of CT or Emmett.

What do you think to this look? I’ve talked about this look to the ladies and they seem to not only like it but love it!

And by the way here is me wearing a CT shirt what do you think to the fit some say it’s look okay others say it needs a bit of tailoring.

Thanks :)

Is that a Slim fit or Extra Slim? You look like a very slender guy so you could probably tailor your shirts unless it's already an ESF.

It’s a slim fit I usually do get all my shirts tailored but I was given it as a Christmas present so haven’t had the time to go to the tailor. How do you (I appreciate you can’t see much) think I should get it tailored to a skin tight or a close fitting but not skin tight fit?

Never skin tight. Closely fitted with room to move is what I'd suggest - tailored to your shape.
Completely agree I’ll tell my tailor to make it closely fitted with room to move but not skin tight.

I assume you are talking about how to dress for work. Nothing wrong with that manner of dress. The only thing I will say is - don't wear your suit bottoms for pants with the outfit. I would stick to mostly solid colors for the pants - when you get to patterns it looks like you're missing the jacket and tie IMO. Otherwise, that's a good balance - better dressed than the guys wearing dockers and not too stuffy.

If you're talking about out of work dress, it always depends on where you are and what you are doing. There are absolutely times and places where casual attire is more appropriate than dress casual/smart casual. In those occasions, quality denim or cotton or linen are appropriate and even shorts (wearing wool pants to a beach bar isn't high fashion in my opinion - it's a fish out of water).
