I like the general idea, but to me the fall colors and the houndstooth fabric (too businessy) on the jacket don't really gel. Maybe a white jacket and a more tropical (summery) motif shirt. But I commend you for going in this direction. I always play it safe with a solid shirt when I wear a blazer.

I get what you are saying about the jacket, and it wasn’t as satisfying as I hoped. I think something like this would work better...

...but then the peak lapels and brown and patterned shirt starts to veer a little into 70s cosplay. I am trying to play more with patterns and color and it’s a bit out of my comfort zone, so it’s a iterative process.

say yes to 18 inch trouser rises

Nice outfit but your shirt collar is trying to run away from your neck, sorta weird.

Beige jacket with darker stuff is too dadcore, looks like an orphan jacket from a summer suit. Try being slightly less dadcore by wearing it with lighter colours.

"Topknot or rolled jeans: pick one! With the visvim it becomes culural cliche of the worst kind"

hey @Fuuma nice to read you :) first of all sorry, you know my english level ^^ your feedback is just another point of view, especially in the internet / Social network game. here in France, the "average" one, the only guys see with this knotthing wear slim track pants, soccer jersey and adidas nmd / am97 / current hype kicks so being a cliche in visvim with rolled up denim, I can't stand to be honnest ^^ ... I see cliche each time I go through fashion forum / instagram

is it a bad thing ? if you like what you wear ...

En fait les topknots je peux pas mais disons qu'en mode footeux c moins grave que dans des ref de type vénération du designer à la con de Visvim, c tellement artificiel.

The top look is like very well executed normcore, I approve.

When the wind can’t decide whether or not to pop tha colla. Shoutout to @KamoteJoe for the EG flower flannel.

Hum I know it is a flannel but that light patterned flower thing doesn't work very well with greyish winterish clothing. The only instance such a style seems to work is either going all the way (i.e. the jacket itself is some weird CdG patterned abomination) or in a classic slim rock dude with a weird shirt/thrifted shirt like a bowling shirt or Hawaiian or whatever.
