Just got one, in the Ludlow fit. It's crepe wool, but very tightly knit. Natural shoulder. Pants are a little tight in the thigh, but I guess that's to cater to their Eloi clientele. I like it a lot, very dark navy. Getting it tailored tomorrow. Going to be really nice for summer. Will post fit pics when I get it back.

Will this be your first ever photo in dressedwell? I dont thibk ibhave ever seen one!
 
I feel like the belle of the ball! Alright, I'll slap up seersucker, chambray, and crepe wool pics. As soon as I get the crepe back. I never had the seersucker and chambray tailored though, so I fully expect criticisms about having an excessive millimeter or two of cuff showing. And the chambray fits like shit anyway.

Is this a SSSSS or 5S (specialist suit scientist stainless steel) edition?
 
Okay, so another thing to mention - the calves on this suit are ridiculously small, and I have about medium size calves. Here are a couple of pics. The blotch on my lapel is to obscure a lapel pin that I didn't want to share. These are from a PR event I attended a month or two ago.

Fit is okay, wish it were a little more snug on the ribs, but it is a very breathable suit. It was in the mid-eighties, so my neck is unbuttoned. Shirt is H&M, so that's why the collar is rubbish.

I had the sleeves taken in, but not enough, apparently.

why did you blotch out all those white faces but not the one of the little fat girl?
 
This is ghastly. Never had it tailored. It's chambray. Once again, collar unbuttoned (I hate buttoning my collar and only do so when I must). The fit is terrible, but please elaborate on its horribleness. And my baseboards were filthy. Shirt is courtesy of Mr. Penney's house brand. Tie is sold in the Florida Capitol gift shop.

Get a well fitting shirt. Doesn't have to be expensive, but if it fits well you won't even notice the buttoned collar. Unbuttoned collar with tie looks very college freshman. Guess that's ok if you still are one.

Is this you?
You must never ever wear a collar button undone with a suit and tie.
Unless you are Frank Sinatra singing at 2 am in a jazz club. You do not appear to be Mr. Sinatra or even a close facsimile.
FFS if you don't want to wear a tie - don't wear one - but do not undo the top button and loosen tie - especially that one. It's too wide too. In fact I don't think I'd keep it.And what's with the tie bar - on that tie and with top button undone?

The tie is wrong for the suit.
Is the suit really chambray?????
If it is - its a casual suit.
Needs a knit tie.
This you could, or even should, wear a with a soft unfused collar OCBD and be more than OK.
Jacket needs an inch or two cut off the sleeves.
And at least that much off the trousers.
Its a bit low rise but it might look OK in better photos or real life.
Dark brown suede chukkas or shoes.
Dark brown belt.
Relax and you'll be cool.

Don't wear tan shoes and belts with your suits.
Dark chocolate brown is OK or burgundy or black but not tan.

I will repeat that I think that chambray suit is fucking terrible and I should be ashamed for buying it. Believe me, I am. But knit ties are awful 98% of the time.

Tan shoes go with everything but black or charcoal.

Just my opinion.
