    So many issues with this look.
    -Tie is a little too wide and washed out for that shirt. a knit tie with a darker color would work better.
    -And then the driving shoes look off. Imo they look off with most shirt and tie ensembles and with cuff pants. the look is calling for some bulchers.
    -Belt is too wide.
    -Sleeves on the shirt has too much puff.

    This is one of my favorite looks you've yet worn, NYR. Looking good. Shirt and tie perhaps a bit close in pattern&color (almost gives me a headache) but overall, just dandy.

    This is great. Would love to see how it looks with the jacket buttoned as well as the sleeves shortened a touch but I like it a lot.

    A number of really really nice NYR outfits recently... until the eye reaches those :fu: :fu: cuffs. Man, you gotta do something about these stupid cuffs with their stupid contrasting selvedge. :)

    that white detail strap just doesn't work with conservative leather shoes and it definitely doesn't work with every colour of their chinos in my opinion.

    Unless you have a jacket to go with that outfit then lose the tie. Paired with that shirt would be hard enough to pull off even with a jacket. If you do that the whole thing will look 1000x better.

    He explained earlier that his office requires a tie but has banned jackets.

    Man that's rough. My heart goes out to you, Tau, seriously!

    In that case I would choose a slimmer tie and keep the colour in the same family as the rest of the outfit at least. That particular tie isn't working.

    Yeah in that case I'd use a cotton or knit tie... or just lose the tie for the picture, then wear it for work [​IMG]

    Really nice pattern combining, in my opinion. Very busy up close, but it still works.
