    I find that fit is *very* trim. I have to size up in shirts.

      WIWT



      Getaway weekend in Savannah. Time to really break in the boots [emoji106][emoji869]

      Old Navy henley
      JC belt
      Uniqlo jeans
      BR socks
      AE boots w/ Timberland laces (52" electric blue laces for $5 & free shipping always -- in case anyone's looking for colorful boot laces)

        [MENTION=15259]yogi[/MENTION] - Your JC sport coat gives you the same appearance mine does. The waist is brought it quite a bit which makes your hips look wide then you pants taper. That is my only complaint with JC sport coats. [MENTION=13309]DuFrank[/MENTION] - Nice boots! I love my Dalton's. I may end up resoling in red Dainite when the time comes unless I can find a beat up pair on eBay to resole in which case I will have 2 pair. I missed out on someone selling some Chili Dalton's for $175 on SF.

          Yes it does! I'm going to post a pic from today and the jacket I'm wearing is even worse. It's a Thom brown and the buttons/waste are very high, so it bows out at my hips. I'm going to post in the how does this fit thread to see if I should do anything to it.

            Today. Thom Brown. Was/is a suit jacket, but it's flannel and has a windowpane pattern. It's not overly structured either. However, don't really love it. But it was free...





            Bow tie is wool almost tweed speckled navy from banana
            Pants light grey wool flannel from BR
            Shirt from banana as well.

              Is the jacket navy? Hard to see the pattern on it in those pics. Also looks a bit big relative to your previously posted jackets

                  Red Dainite would be awesome! I have the black stock Dainite on these and it's surprising how much better they wear than leather soles.
                  Big fan of the chili and oxblood too. Glad I went with the walnut as it's what it seems the Dalton was made for, but if I were to get another pair, it'd be oxblood or chili for sure.

                    Construction is good. But this is the first thing that really fit after a bunch of tried items. Still needs some tailoring and even then it won't be perfect, but I got it on super sale. Like $45? So I can forgive some things.

                    Returns aren't easy enough for me to really recommend it. This is the last thing I've bought but I do double check every once in a while in their sales.

                            Spring seems to be finally here (in Toronto)... couple of weeks ago:

                                Here's where my lack of expertise will probably be exposed, but I'll give it a shot since the wedding is tomorrow:
                                I'm not sure what it is, but somehow the pieces together seem a little "off". It looks like each individual piece seems to fit well, although there's always room for nitpicking: the blazer could be longer, the shirt color seems too big, pants could maybe do with a little less break. But none of things are going to be fixed by tomorrow, even if you wanted to change them.

                                So three things I would suggest:

                                1. Go with a slightly more formal pant with a higher rise (so your belt buckle doesn't show when the jacket is buttoned) and a center crease. If you can, try to use a pant with less break; it kinda looks like you're trying to dress up beige jeans right now.

                                2. Just personal preference, but I would choose a solid shirt in white or light blue, or maybe a pale, tone-on-tone strip or check. Maybe it's the tie color in contrast; I just cannot pull off green in any shade. So a knit tie or even a rep tie would be my preference.

                                3. I'd try something more structured with the white pocket square. Whenever I see a white pocket square fluffed out like that, it makes me think someone didn't stuff a Kleenex in their pocket down far enough to hide it. If you have a colored or patterned square, by all means go for it!

                                Anyway, just my 2 cents and most of it is personal preference. Something like this is not far from what I think you're going for:



                                To me, that just looks more pulled together. Have fun at the wedding, hope there's an open bar!
