    Different colour tie, IMO. Maybe navy...? (In design, it is preferable, to not use more than 3 colours in a print. I think that rule applies here--especially with bold trousers. I like the fit, though. :))

    Critique or GTFO. (I've seen you poasting quite a lot--things like: Terrible, ergh, how could you, etc. without giving any explanation. Shows a lack of imagination/initiative/maturity/brains, IMO.

    Fritzl, it might not make him look obese, but objectively it does not fit his midsection. Surely you can see this?

    ^Not bad.

    For more casual sweaters you may want to consider more casual shirts/ties--softer collars (buttondown if you like), knit ties, smaller knots.

    Good advice. And/or ditch the tie all together.

    Unless your office/work environment requires polos, you should wear l/s button-ups instead. This looks like something my dad would wear to play golf. :embar:

    Of course, if you are interning as a golfer... :happy:

    Edit: the pants fit well IMHO, and the shoes look nice!


    Best yet, brah :slayer:

    I think the bowtie clashes with the rest of the outfit. The overall feel is soft and casual, but the bow tie just seems a bit too formal for the look. I like the colors though.

    I like this look a lot and feel that the bowtie works perfectly. Details on the cardigan?

    Yeah, no.

    A v-neck might have helped your cause a bit more, Rob. And a bit more contrast between shirt and tie.

    The crew neck doesn't bother me as much...needed something springy and solid (and skinny) for this shirt, that was all I had...was bloody cold this morning for the walk to work...
