    If you like it, then go for it. Personal style is what it is.
    If there's anything I'd nitpick here -- 100% opinion -- it's the contrast between the tie and the jacket. It's hard to pull off lighter, summer-y ties with dark jackets. I'd either wear a darker tie or a lighter-colored jacket.

      Lacoste polo -- very old hand-me-down and the most durable shirt I've ever come across.
      JC jacket
      Gant sunglasses ($25 from Gilt!)
      CK jeans
      AE Dalton -- I'd wear these every day

              Thanks. It's such a simple look. I always see it from the Italian guys, but rarely go for it.

                One last one, sorry to hijack the thread. This is what I'm wearing to dinner and a bar tonight. i would prefer to wear a suit, but will be with a large group that will be dressed informally. As they say, when in Rome.

                  [MENTION=14255]thecharlesg[/MENTION] - Great fits! That blue/yellow/white SuSu tie has been on my mind a while and recently purchased something similar from Conrad Wu.

                    Perfection my friend! Where is that purple knit tie from? I've been trying to get my hands on one, either solid or white dots.

                      Thanks. It's a violet grenadine from Berg and Berg.

                        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!
                        Thanks for the detailed feedback. As you mentioned preference, I do like my jackets a bit shorter.

                        I agree about the pants. I usually struggle to get much of any break with these pants based on how they hug my quads, but I suppose wearing them to work earlier in the week must have loosened them up.

                        I threw the knot together on the tie too quickly to check the colors and it's smaller than the half-windsor I'll wear today. I think this made the collar look disproportionately large, though I can't argue it leans toward the larger side anyway.

                        Thanks again. Cheers!

                              I love the Daltons in bourbon, they really do look best in that color. Just a tip or two, you should really leave the bottom button on the vest unbuttoned and I'm not really such a fan of that tie but to each his own [emoji41] the outfit looks great though!

                                No worries. Purple's her favorite color, so purple paisley it was for the night.
