    A few things here:

    - A fit like this really calls for boots. You don't really want to wear dress shoes with leather/denim/western shirt.

    - Untuck the shirt

    - Either get rid of the undershirt, or wear a v-neck that hides the fact that you are wearing one.

    - Not sure if it's just me, but I'm not a fan of all the detailing on the leather.

    Thanks for the comment, I appreciate your opinion.
    A few thinks I would like to clarify though.

    - The shoes are in fact boots; the Galway by edward green. It's just not all that visible from the pictures.
    - The shirt is untucked. It's rather short in length, something I like as it doesn't peep out below my jacket.
    - I respect your opinion regarding the t-shirt (which is a V-neck), but I don't have a problem wearing a t-shirt underneath a western or denim shirt.
    - Regarding the jacket detailing; each to their own.

    This is without the jacket, it might give a better perspective of the shirts length. Though you might still find it too short.

    Thanks.
    I have a Pro-ject record player, a Cambridge Audio phono stage and a Plinius Amp. Digital source is an iMac through an Apogee Dac. My speakers are by Linn. I love good music but there is only so much I can afford on a student budget...

    Nice if you don't need to raise your arms from your side and have your shirt ride up to your chest. Looks a good few inches too short.

    Am I missing something? This looks plain and the shoulder of the jacket is off. The break could be better, too.

    Plain/Clean...was going for a simple look. Was out for dinner with my parents.

    Bomber is perfect. Just my sidewards stance causing the shoulder to sit low.

    I think the shirt's pattern detracts from the visual detail of the jacket's quilting and the shoes/boots' patina. The jeans look quite slubby as well, so you've already got quite a bit of interesting texture contrasts going on. Maybe try putting on a white vneck or a white buttondown with grey tapered trousers.

    COS is surprisingly good. Quality is several levels above H&M...on par with APC I'd say. At retail it's an good deal for the design and mid level quality...on sale it's unbeatable.

    Actually not wearing a shirt at all...the jumper has a double collar and hem built in.

    You guys are nuts; the best part of this is the jacket and the boots. The rest of it could be burned, better jeans, more interesting shirt, yada yada, but the leather parts are done right.
