Homespun Andover Jacket
Knit Back Vest
Homespun Cinch Pant
Yuketen

Any ideas on what colour/pattern tie to go with this? also any other shoes that would suit the fit of the pants?

Would assume so. I hope it's not a really safe buy and they get some of the more interesting stuff.

Knitted O'Dell or Borelli ties in muted olive, burgundy, muted anything.

Looks great. Are the sleeves short on the jacket, or your arms just long?

Any kind of walnut Yakuten, Trickers or Grenson brogues - close fitting ankle boot and not shoe unless you like the turn up for the cinch pants exposed.

Oh. You are already wearing Yakutens Laughing out loud

Forget those. Too cloggy. Maybe try something more streamlined with a commando sole. The Yakutens look like giant slippers from here.

Yuks look fine. Tall enough to balance their bulk.

It looks like the jacket and trousers don't match in pattern/colour? Prob just the lightning though. Anyway great with the crisp white shirt. I reckon a black shiny derby would look good if it's a grey rather than brown/olive tweed.

Thanks for the help. Yeah I've got really long arms and legs, do they look too short? always have this problem but these seem to be longer than others I've tried on.

Dunno if they look to short, maybe if we could see another pic it might help

I think the fit is very good for an off the rack. Width fit is spot on. On finer points as long as your hands aren't placed straight down the slight crop on the sleeves works with the ankle crop. This is no problem Bedfords are dress down semi formal. I bought one from AW15 and the waistcoat covers the belt completely to form continuity. Black shoes don't work with brown belts. You must be way over 6ft to have this problem. Maybe get rid of the belt and wear braces Eye-wink

Something along these lines: https://lookastic.co.uk/men/dark-brown-wool-tie?utm_medium=Referral&utm;_source=lookastic.com


I like the Tom Ford blend in with the wallpaper ties: www.mrporter.com/mens/tom_ford/knitted-wool-and-silk-blend-tie/651351?cm_mmc=LinkshareUK-_-/uH3aK9MsXE-_-Custom-_-LinkBuilder&ranMID=36586&ranEAID=/uH3aK9MsXE&ranSiteID=/uH3aK9MsXE&siteID=_uH3aK9MsXE-AtnBf6TLLCBRHzv_htc3.Q&ppv=2

Muted with white or blue shirts.

Thanks mate! Yeah i am taller than 6ft, unsure of how much exactly. Ive never had a set of braces but wouldn't mind trying out some. and i really like that Tom Ford tie too, thanks a lot

Do these Fatigues fit ok - quite roomy but size down would be too tight (shite pics):
