The uproar Laughing out loud

I’ve only ever bought grey checked suits and have a black on hand too. Always been normal to me but I’m not an office bitch so suppose I wouldn’t know? They are only normally used for races and weddings.

This was it in use for Aintree the other week(tie was adjusted after pic). I’m happy with it and it feels comfortable to wear which is my main aim being 17 stone.

You need to explain mate not just the one liners. I’m happy with it but I like hearing opinions good or bad.

Suits fine. Tie is a shocker.

Like something some herbert from the Young Labour Party might wear.

The suit is fine, but unbutton the bottom button.
A light blue shirt and dark blue tie would look better too.

Sleeves look too long - could probably do with being half an inch or so shorter

Body is too short - doesn’t cover the length of your crotch (front rise) and I assume doesn’t cover your arse - which it should.

Trousers probably too tight in the thigh - crease should hang in an unbroken line; jacket is obstructing (no vis), but it looks like it is clinging to your thigh.

Shirt collar points are too small for your build, they should tuck under your jacket lapels.

Tie and shirt combo is bloody awful, particularly with that suit. Bright white shirt and bold red tie are high contrast, and there’s too much contrast between them and the bold pattern of the suit.

I wonder why you didn't go to a suit supply to get a suit tailored or even tailor made for you.
It's extremely hard to have an off the rack suit fit for most people, especially for a man of your proportions. You could pick your own check pattern which I'm sure would look a lot less ali-express than this one.

Unless this suit was heavily discounted I don't think there would be such a price difference.

Also, everything timmbo said.

Good points made, but I think in this era people happy that your just in a suit and made some type of effort.

I might stretch to a shirt if am invited to any Weddings this summer.

Yeah all good points but it’s just not that deep for me as I hardly ever wear one but appreciate the feedback.

90% of the general public wouldn’t notice half them things, I don’t think. Sleeves do look a tad long but no-one is looking at the fellas at aintree races anyway..
