    Yeah, I was a bit worried about being too matchy matchy with the tie.
    That's how my arms normally rest when I'm standing. Elbows naturally bend a bit and my hands are a bit in front of my front pockets. Is that not normal? If so, maybe it's due to bad posture over the years?

    Jeff - It's the one from AE that matches the shoes. I got them right before my wedding day and didn't have time to shop around for cheaper alternatives.

      @vicious looks great, conventional wisdom would dictate to wear a jacket or a sweater, so that if the shirt isn't a 'perfect' fit you can't really tell. But looks good!

        Yeah I sit all day here and it was adding to my already damaged shoulders problems. Mine were VERY weak relative to my actual strength, at one point I could deadlift 450lbs, do a bunch of chin ups with +45lbs strapped to me, dips with +90lbs which by most standards is quite good. But bench pressing 175 was unstable as all heck and always an issue and really difficult! I literally couldn't bench press my own body weight.


        Finally saw specialist after my left bicep went numb in hockey and then I had crazy pain shooting down my arm. Having him pull my arm he could move my shoulder ball joint a lot in all directions, so i most likely had stretched my tendons, my rotator cuff was F'ed or I had a torn labrum;got to get an MRI and lots of needles for that one..turns out I'm quite claustraphobic!

        Bad posture can wreak havoc, I'm sure a physio therapist or DR would be better able to tell you.
        Anyways just an observation, but as you see most peoples arms rest more to the side.

          @Vicious, I would say you have a little too much going on in that outfit. Every piece is sort of "different" and has its own flair (textured tie, loud patterned shirt, textured pants, shoes and belt that stand out). Trade some of the piece for something more neutral (such as a white shirt, khaki chinos, ditch the tie) and you will have an outfit that doesn't look like it is trying to hard to stand out

          Just my two cents

                Vicious, just throw on a grey jacket and you'd look nice. It would still be loud (that's ok, I kind of like loud) but it would detract from the "matchy" thing.
                Mjs, looks swell.

                  @Vicious: I really like your outfit and found it one of the more appealing ones I've seen from you. Almost all the pieces have a really nice high/low thing going on and it's clear you're putting thought into things. Solid knit tie is a great way to wear a tie w/ gingham. And the color of the tie is spot on.

                  That said, I agree with others that the outfit could be made even better with one of a few small changes. Pant color is one of them: it's not that you're current color looks bad (it doesn't), but that something less directly matched to the tie and the navy in the gingham (a darker than khaki but not chocolate brown?) might help dial back the color intensity. I also agree that another layer up top would be another direction to take this in. Throw on a grey v-neck or cardigan and the pants' matchiness would likely become a non-issue. Wearing a blazer would be another way to go. Personally, I'd opt for the grey cardigan.

                      Thanks for the suggestions guys. I don't currently own a grey blazer or sweater but I'll keep that in mind for next time. The outfit is something I'd normally wear without the tie. I threw the tie on at the last minute since my wife was like 'why'd you buy it if you're not planning on ever wearing it'. I only picked it up since it was on sale for $10.

                          Josh it looks like your pants are sitting really low in the pics.
                          Try sizing down future shirts, the shoulders are too wide and it will help get it more fitted to your body and reduce billowing around your belt.

                          Purple goes good with walnut shoes, I love my solid purple socks and Walnut shoes.

                              @josh - I agree with shadow on the low rise of your pants and shirt size. Also, if you're going to wear a tie, there's no reason not to button that top button. Just looks sloppy unbuttoned, IMO.
