Hello, I've never posted one of these but I've commented on a few so I feel like I've earned the right. This is a relatively new suit, how does it fit would you guys say? The pics aren't the greatest as they were taken by a friend before a mock trial deal.

As far as I can tell, the suit looks good. But it is hard to say because the pictures do suck. Hard. Your tie knot also needs work.

Your tie knot is so bad, that even with the bad photography it is apparent!
Get us a better picture so we can help you out!

Yea I guess this thread is a failure, I'll get better pictures pretty soon and post them. As for the tie knot...I'm aware of the look of the tie knot isn't for everyone. I happen to like that style though I wouldn't wear it for a firm interview. As this was mock trial I took some liberties with the tie and shoes. Brown Edward Green shoes with an Etro cashmere tie (brown but with pink,blue, green colored threads in it also).

If you like that tie knot, you might as well just fold the tie three times and staple it to the shirt.

The suit looks good, though.

Don't forget to put your weight on your right foot and give a nice lean....

Two things jump out as especially bad:
1. Neckbeard needs to go
2. Shirt Collar doesn't fit, looks at least 2 inches too big, makes your tie knot look bad

If you have paid such attention to previous such threads why are the photographs utterly unsuitable to meet your request?

Probably because you touch yourself at night

The neckbeard is definitely not going but the shirt collar comment is actually fairly brilliant

tough to see anything. my personal taste tells me your button stance is a litte high and the body is a tad short but within range.

This is what I notice as well. Especially the button stance. Part of it is your pose, but you don't want shirt showing at your waist. And yes, your knot sucks.
