    Decided to go bolder than usual. Please critique away. Not sure how comfortable I feel with the tie. I think it might look better without it. Also, the shirt is BR so I know there's extra material around the midsection.



    shirt - BR
    corduroys - Bonobos
    knit tie - JCrew Factory
    watch - Christopher Ward
    shoes - AE strands

    @idle - Thanks for the critique and compliments. This is the first time I've worn these pants.

    Vicious, you should try doing the military tuck with your shirts, the pants being fitted and you have some billowing to the sides, which I find hurts the wearing fitted theme of the pants.

    Tie isn't the worst thing, maybe a bit too matchy matchy for pants but meh. I still need to get used to seeing them without a tip, and your knot needs to be centered

    Serious Question: do your arms normally rest that way or are you putting them forward in your photos? I ask because mine got F'ed up in hockey and are very loose and I have to make sure to sit with shoulders back to get the muscles trained.

    @BJ I think everything fits perfectly first and foremost, and the pants aren't too bad...I just think if you maybe wore a dark navy on the bottom then it would've coordinated a little better with the blues in the tie and shirt and especially those Kenilworths

    Sorry for the bad cell phone bathroom pics haha

    @Vicious - I agree with shadow that there's a lot of blue and it might all match a little too well. But, the outfit looks really well put together. How do you like the bonobos cords?

    Also, where did you get the belt to go with your strands? I still need to pick one up to match mine.

    Shadow:
    Not familiar with the military tuck.
    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
