    That shirt is pretty bad, too.

    I don't think so, it's just a tweed jacket and I like tweed with jeans. They are quite light these days but still look appropriate.



    The shirt has great colours, and goes very well with the dark green jacket. I really like it. What don't you like about it?

    I'm surprised by the negative comments, but it's all good and I welcome feedback :)

    Jeans don´t look bad to me. I would change the shirt though, as pointed out already.

    I prefer a solid, single color when it comes to gingham. Navy, bottle green, maroon, etc. Something on the conservative side. The color variations give your shirt an almost 3D effect in the pictures which I'm not a fan of. I also stay away from shirts with buttons that are dark/darker than the shirt.

    The color of the tweed looks cool, though. I'd likely pair it with a blue OCBD or light blue pencil stripe BD and mid grey trou.

    Well, obviously you like it! :D Anyway, jacket looks like gray flannel in the picture. Tweed makes it better, but a chunkier tweed would be better still.

    this thread makes me so sad. everytime i look and see there's 10 new posts, i click with the expectation that there will be at least one fit from an older poster who has taken criticism and commentary to heart and improved, but no, still the same dreadful droll, heartless pictures of awkward outfits with strange, disparate combinations and tacky tumblr-esque affectations. maybe one day...

    * ugly square
    * shirt pattern/color clashes with the rest of the oufit
    * why are you wearing a very slim, aggressively cut jacket with hacking pockets with jeans?
    * shoes are too bright
    * jeans are like the most boring MC-style jeans ever.

    * color choices are atrocious. are you wearing a linen summer jacket with corduroy pants?
    * isn't casual

    I might start posting in here once things cool down in the Dirty. If that happens, prepare for face-melting doses of win. :D

    this isn't so much bad as offensively boring. all your fits are the same: if it's cool, you have a boring button up, high neck cardigan, a too tight button down shirt with a too stiff collar that's tucked in, unfaded raw denim with no break and a slight turn-up, and dress shoes - usually alden chukkas or loafers. the orange shirt also doesn't work well in this context.

    best in days, although the shoe/shirt colors look a little close, and the apparent shininess of the pants makes the fabric look cheap. would also prefer a cuff or a crease if you're wearing them with a blazer.

    that TTO fit is actually good (minus the pocket square), because he's able to successfully mix formalities. all the pieces, especially the shirt, have character, which lends the combination a sense of humor that makes it all work. especially like the contrast between the jacket/formal pants. note: most of you should not attempt this.

    Not no, but hell no. I loves me some TTO, but this was one of the most awkward fits in a long time. Note: nobody should attempt it.

    My pants are corduroy, so, not shiny, but maybe even less sharp than you thought.

    You still in Richmond?
