1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Woven belt would have absolutely killed it with this fit. I dig the color of the pantaloons.

    Looking back I would say that the hat is more suitable for summer fits and the fit that I posted was more towards autumn/spring.
    Do you agree?

    I agree! I should buy one, really. And, thank you. :)

    Well I didn't like that hat at all to be worn with anything. I liked the outfit without anything on your head :)

    A Svensson fit?? So the look revolves around the sneakers?? Ok. Looks nice. Pocket square is crazy, but I like the rebelliousnes it adds to the fit.
    Some things to fix: sleeve length (just a smidge, or maybe a bit more) and the pants could fit better, though they don´t look bad.

    I don't like the belt much, but I especially like the pants. Where are they from?

    What colour is the shirt? It looks off-white, but I can't be sure.

    The cause is the fabric or the style?

    I think I get what you're going for, but you're not going to succeed when you're wearing khaki coloured chinos.

    And as much as people try to untuck shirts to casual up a blazer fit, it usually just looks disjointed.

    So I'd suggest:
    Swap khakis for something else - jeans being obvious choice.
    Tuck in shirt. or wear tshirt.

    I think the pants are fine, Hagg. The fact that your shirt is untucked is depressing however, and the pocket square isn't awesome either.

    Your sneaks are pretty cool, though.

    I agree with Hendrix. The untucked shirt, even with the correct length, should not be donned with sport coats. It does not match the formality of a sport coat.
    The sleeves of the sc needs to be shortened, also a tv fold for the square would be a better choice.
    I can not comment on anything else because I would take the look to a path that you are clearly not willing/prepared to take.

    The trousers are light blue Tommy Hilfiger; the shirt is white Charles Trywhitt. I agree, the belt is a poor choice; I was originally wearing loafers, but bought those shoes in town--that photo was taken after town--so didn't have time, to swap belt.

    fritzl, that was a little uneccaserally rude. (We're all still learning/no one ever stops learning, duh.)

    Fair enough. Do Thyrwitt shirts run true to size?
