fashion advice (update)

Im planning on wearing this on xmas day ( we're going out for dinner)

Im a big fan of waistcoats especially because shirts are a bit of an issue for me .

Anyways any advice on this outfit? Does it look ok? I went with the check shirt to try and make it more casual. Ive not decided weather to lose the flatcap or not yet. Ive never worn one before so

It's a little Mumford & sons but looks ok. I'm never quite sure about waistcoats with jeans so play it safe and reserve them for wearing with suits lol. Could be a little more fitted, can you tighten it any more?

Hard to tell on the hat without seeing your face but a flatcap can certainly be worn with the rest of that and obv you won't be wearing it at the table anyway (I hope).

Is the belt brown to match the shoes, usually brown shoes work well with a brown strap watch etc.

You look just fine . A watch would suit you . Cap will look good but hard to see in the pic.

Plain shirt with that waist cost would look better.

Check with check is a no no girlfriend.

Make it a white shirt. You're too dark atm. Needs some contrast.

I concurr with the checks with checks comment, plain shirt would be better IMO
I wouldn`t tighten it too much for Christmas day if you plan on pigging out
I like waistcoats, they have a certain distinction about them.

Re: fashion advice 2014/12/10 14:30:14 (permalink)
I am really not good at fashion whatsoever but from my observations:
 
- pick a plain shirt or plain waistcoat as others have said check on check isn't good
- the waistcoat looks like it could do with being a bit more fitted IMO - don't they usually have a little strap at the back you can adjust?
- for some reason it looks weird to me to have the sleeves rolled up on the shirt but that could just be me
 
Take all with a large pinch of salt, I don't 'do' fashion I just wear whatever is comfortable pretty much!

I'm probably amongst the last to give out fashion advice but if you wearing what you are then I think you might look better without the waistcoat.  Although waistcoat with a pair of chino's or trousers may look better if your going for the waistcoat.

I to like waistcoats but prefer to wear them with trousers on account I am neither a hipster or a farmer. Too much check as others said but otherwise fairly solid attempt at sunday finery.
