    It could well be just the belt - those type of plate buckle belts should only be worn with formal trousers though it's debatable whether they should be worn at all. I'd either lose that one altogether and go beltless or opt for a simple buckle one, either in plain leather or woven.

It seems like the fit and colour coordination of everything is bang on so I would have let that do the talking.

    edit: I love the jeans in particular Creed, are they the skinny fit from Uniqlo? I want to order some myself but the white always seems to be low in stock.
    The scarves are here to stay I'm afraid, they are my trusty sidekick, my collection is building! I usually end up wearing them most days at the moment (even here in Surrey and not when in Malta) but [hopefully] the weather in the uk will warm up soon enough and they will get left at home.

    The jeans are the skinny taper - much nicer cut than the standard skinny, which I find a little too lose round the ankles for summer type shoes such as loafers and boat shoes. I absolutely love their jeans cut, for my body shape they are the best I've found so far - and only 35 too!!

    Thanks for the input, it may well be the belt as the jeans sit pretty low. I guess the belts are a matter of taste, but I do see your point and understand that it is more a formal type, I just like it though.... Have include pic just for peace of mind, if too high how much lower should they sit, (am having to replace my entire wardrobe as I've lost 2 and a half stone since 1st Jan) and would like to get it right. Appreciate any advice i'm given.

    The jeans appear to fit fine - personally I prefer a lower rise waist - but they look miles better without that belt.

    That picture reminds me that my chest hair could do with a trim.

    Thanks for the advice. The trouble is the more you trim it the thicker and faster it comes back......

    Creed's scarf saga strikes again............lol. They're obviously you're thing, so you do you.

    Being quite a long scarf, it does give off an impression of you being much shorter. It literally powers the rest of you're outfit.

    Generally I like Creeds' scarves but I'd have to go with the consensus on this one - it's definitely too much material. Being that big, it's more of a heavyweight Lawrence of Arabia look than a lightweight Riviera chic look.

    I bought a similar sized one from Zara - I was expecting it to be a lightweight scarf as opposed to a blanket - I didn't realise it was so big until it arrived. Loved the pattern, so I cut it in half along the length & sowed it to stop it fraying (well, when I say I did it, I mean that I paid someone to do it for me). It literally halved the amount of material which makes it much more wearable. Also ended up with two scarves, which could be seen as a bonus.

    I think you might have discovered the cure for baldness.
