    First upload, WIWY: http://i.imgur.com/KNfL3lY.jpg
    Shirt (grey cotton): Target
    Tie (navy cotton): JCF
    Sportcoat (brown herringbone wool): J Crew
    Belt (brown calf): Allen Edmonds
    Pants (navy wool): JCF
    Shoes (brown calf): Allen Edmonds
    Coatrack and mirror: custom

    For being picky as I was with jackets, I think the sportcoat fits pretty well for having just shortened the sleeves (J Crew Ludlow 34S).

    That looks great, @marathon. The brown and blue go well together. I like the pants color -- it looks a little lighter/brighter than the usual navy. And it fits spot on.
    I agree the jacket fits well too (right lapel is pulling away from the collar, but I think it's just the way you are standing).
    Regarding the shoes, they look good too. Another option would be a lighter brown or tan shoes.
    I would add a light blue linen pocket square.

    So I'm going to critique myself and I'd like some feedback if you dont mind.

    1. Too much blue
    2. Pants fit like crap (in fairness they are like 2 sizes too large, my old 'skinny' fat pants)
    3. Shirt fits fine
    4. Needs more watch
    5. I need a haircut

    Any other thoughts?

    To address your self-critique:

    1.) It's a lot of blue, but it would be ok if they were different shades. It's only start because the jeans and shirt are similar. If you had darker jeans, this wouldn't be an issue.
    2.) Yeah, they're pretty baggy. But I have some old ones that I wear sometimes, too. "You dance with who brought you." It's something you can address the next time you go jean shopping. Sounds like you already identified the issue.
    3.) The shirt fit is ok. It's not so noticeable that a jacket couldn't cover it, but the collar circumference looks like it's pretty big if you were to button it all the way up. The collar circumference is often used as a proxy for how large the rest of the shirt will be so you may want to look at finding shirts that are the right collar size. (If I'm wrong, ignore this advice.)
    4.) The collar is flimsy. Adding some 50-cent plastic collar stays would help. Or better yet, if it's a casual shirt then I'm a big fan of button down collars.

    The collar is messy. Can you use stays or are they not removeable? Personally, I've tried to wear some of my dress shirts without a jacket, and I never like where the collar ends up at the end of the day. (Likewise, if I have a sportcoat on, but no tie, I don't like where the collar sits.) To fix this, I've worn OCBDs. The button down collar helps keep the look clean and not sloppy. Right now your shirt is in 'sloppy' territory.

    I don't wear a watch and aren't really interested in them, though perhaps that will change at some point. I don't mind the pants for out of the office, but in the office, I think you're right that a slimmer cut would be better. I also think the wash tends to be more casual/evening/weekend vs. office. Instead go for a darker wash -- I like my Levi 514's and am not a denim head at all.

    Cut your hair if you want but you'd better be kind to that beard!
