    Great look. Saw that Timex in person the other day and loved it; just wish it were more in the 40mm range.

      I think that's generally understood (it is by me at any rate). Feedback, criticism, etc. is really the point here. I recall that a few years back I posted a look here that I thought was pretty damn slick. Pretty much everyone agreed. However, one person made the point that my tie wasn't cinched against my neck and it looked kinda sloppy. He was right - and more importantly, I now always keep that in check when I wear ties. That criticism was useful to me in the long term. As long as everyone maintains a helpful, friendly approach (and everyone pretty much always seems to do so), I don't think anyone should be shy about critiquing what people post here.

        Thanks! H&M, Zara, Topman and Express are my fave brands as they carry slim-fit sized in dress shirts, pants and suits that fits me very well, with little to no alterations required.

        I would love to buy J.Crew suits and clothes but they're just baggy as hell when I wear them. Same story for Banana Rep - they don't even carry size 36 here!

          In reply to some of the comments I've received about my recent WIWT:

          1. I have a huge ass/legs and I ain't embarrassed of 'em.
          2. Those are the only "skinny" jeans I own. But they are actually more comfortable than most because they have a little stretch. Still, I only wear them occasionally because they are less conservative than most of what I wear.
          3. I chose those jeans with that particular outfit because my girlfriend and I were going to see a pseudo-controversial/adult-themed theater performance at the local university that evening. It seemed like an appropriate occasion to wear an outfit that leaned younger/trendier than my usual. Plus my GF is an unabashed ass/legs woman. I like to be suitable arm candy and indulge her when we go out.

              I really don't know why the Fifth Ave gets so much hate. I don't think those look bad at all, imo.

                Agreed. The 5th Ave is easier to dress down than the Park Ave and looks better in other colors. My boss has Bourbon Park Aves and I am not a fan.

                  I didn't realize they did. I'm wearing my black 5th Avenues today (or, the Brooks Bros. version anyway). They are my go-to conservative wear-with-a-suit shoes.

                      Would have been better to Puff the square, straight fold makes it clash with the tie...size of pattern too close to tie. Tie Bar about an inch down too. Otherwise, good look.

                        Thanks. I was torn on that. I work in a pretty casual environment (I have to dress business casual but other offices near me are in jeans and polo shirts) and I was afraid that would be just too excessively dressy.

                          Also looks like the jacket is too big overall. Any way to get a picture taken by someone else?

                            Respectfully I don't think those work. With that jacket I would go solid tie

                              Those look like grey suede desert boots. If they are, do you know the name of the actual color you purchased?
