    Is it possible to be too fussy regarding fit?

    Okay, so basically I was having a clearout of my wardrobe (the bar that holds up the clothes actually fell down!) and I was trying to break everything down so I only owned a few staples of simple, well-fitting pieces.

    It was only then that I released that I've become so fussy regarding how things fit me that almost nothing fits my criteria, with the exception of my blazers, my suits and my dress shirts.

    Stuff like casual oxford shirts, as well as alot of my knitwear, just doesn't compare to the perfectly fitted pieces in my formal wardrobe.

    So, am I being unrealistic? Or should the truly stylish gent make sure everything, even the casual pieces, are perfect.

    I like to wear all my clothes fitted, baggy tee's/ jeans just don't feel right to me.....Fit is everything.

    I'm similar - fit is becoming increasingly important to me. In fact, I think it's the number one factor in whether or not an outfit looks good.

    That said, it is easy to take it too far. Heading down the pub for a pint with a few mates? I don't think you need to have that perfectly tailored look, which is required in a more formal or dressy setting. That doesn't mean baggy jeans, and old hoody and flip flops are ok; it just means you can relax things a bit.

    It varies with season too - In some ways I find dressing well in summer harder than dressing well in winter (when one has the ability to mess around with layers etc). You're a bit more exposed, and so everything has to be just so. If you're only wearing a pair of chinos and a polo, you had better make sure they fit well.

    Agree, summer time dressing as to be spot on with the fit, as your limited to just a couple of pieces to wear. Maybe chino's, shirt and perhaps a lightweight cardigan so make sure they are of a good fit to obtain the "sharp" look.
