                  My wife took my blue JCP OCBD to wear and has not returned it. I miss it but remember those lapels are so small and make it hard to wear with a tie. I like your coordination but those lapels make me chuckle.

                  Hmmm. Without dismissing everything, I would like to give constructive advice. Please stick around and post as that's what we all have done to start dressing better.

                  1. The tie matches the pocket square which makes it look like you bought them in a set. The best instances of pulling off tie/PS are when they compliment but not completely match. Also the color does not mix with the rest of the fit. It is too loud of a red.
                  2. The tie knot is very "peacocky" which you may personally like but people who dress well tend to stick with Four-in-hand, double four-in-hand, half windsor.
                  3. The watch is very blingy and clashes but watches are personal. That looks very casual compared to what you are going for with the fit.
                  4. That is a loud pattern which makes it tough to pull off. It could work very casually and without a tie but mixed into this fit just makes it have a lot going on.

                  Keep posting fits and we will try to help. I use the tapatalk app to post pictures which helps, some use imgur, photobucket, and the like but you have add the [img] into the mix when posting.

                    I know. I love everything about this jacket except for the tiny lapels. It was only $15 so I'm not worried about it!

                      ***Disclaimer: Views represented below are my own and not necessarily shared by anyone else. All feedback should be taken with a grain of salt knowing that our senses of style could (and most certainly are) very different.***

                      The good: I like the jacket and the shoes (which I own as well and love) as pieces, they have potential to be great in several outfits. The jacket looks too big in the shoulders, but the length, waist, and sleeves look good. The fits on everything looks pretty well done.

                      The bad: Very busy look... lot's going on here. Tie knot is super loud and would destroy any outfit's subtlety all by itself. But it doesn't look like subtlety is something you are aiming for. Printed paisley shirt, red tie with a matched square, and a gold/diamond encrusted watch are all pieces that just grab lots of attention and none are very aesthetically pleasing together, in my opinion. In all, the look as a whole just feels very in-cohesive and unsure of itself. What you choose to wear should say something about you- what exactly are these pieces trying to tell an observer if not simply asking for attention?

                          Leaning toward spring today. Didn't realize how wrinkled these chinos were until I took these pics, oops.





                          This is a first drive for this jacket, picked up from J.Crew clearance a little while back. Haven't gotten the sleeves shortened yet but it's such a casual jacket (shirt-weight, unstructured, almost completely unlined) that I think they look fine folded back.

                          JC jacket, BB shirt, Kent Wang tie, JCF chinos, PRL boots, Nomos watch on navy Horween strap

                            P.S. I swear to God no matter how much running or lifting or gaining or cutting or surplus-ing or deficit-ing I do, my legs manage to get bigger while the rest of me shrinks or stays the same #thickthighssavelives

                              I have the same issue though I know mine is from increased running mileage and only doing upper body weights 1 day a week.

                                I actually like the sleeves-folded-back thing. How very J Crew of you, though...
