    This was pretty loud but I wasn't seeing clients today and the office was pretty empty.
    No good fit pics because of how awkward I have to stand in a mirror, real camera will come at somepoint
    And yes bust my balls for the half windsor, this tie doesn't hold a FIH very well
    Wool Cashmere blend MTM, this thing feels like pajamas

    My suggestions/criticisms

    1. You are wearing too many patterns, two of these items should be a solid
    2. You are wearing basically the same pattern jacket and pants, but in different colors which is almost impossible to pull off. You have to decide either the pants or the jacket, the other needs to be a solid
    3. the tie is a difficult pattern, the design should probably be on a smaller scale for it to work
    4. The pocket square is kind of in no mans land, color wise and fold wise.

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah I was going to go with a solid blue shirt and a knit tie but I have been wearing my knits too frequently. I knew it was a little too intense when I walked out the door, so I agree 100%, not a combo I'll be wearing again. However it is a full suit, this fabric is meant for a sportcoat but I had them make me a full suit and I have to say it is the most comfortable suit I own. I wear it on casual fridays because it's more comfortable than jeans...

    Somehow I got about 6-7 compliments today, probably because people had to notice it hahaha!

    Genrally works that way -- the louder the look the more "fashionable" normal folks think you are.
    Akin to the super skinny lapeled little brother suits advertised as fashionable by the mass media rags like GQ.

    That's a hell of a light bulb to turn a grey suit brown.

    Too many patterns to be in good taste but folks in the main thread seem to think its loud enough for pea-cocking?

    But it is interesting how the double-breasted pinstripe has gone from being the exclusive and expected uniform of the most conservative types (bank managers etc.) to now being so unexpected as to have become almost subversively peacockish. Of course, it's the quality of the cut, and the multiple patterns that really confirm it here.
