    @Sam1234 I kinda get what you're saying. I have to wear a tie for a work, so long as we have a shirt and tie on we can wear whatever else within reason.

    I tried it with a cardigan first, (just a thin button up one) but it didn't look right. Also, I have a knitted tie but feel like it would be a little too big compared to the skinnier one I've picked here.
    I personally am in the same kind of mindset - that something might be slightly off with it, but like you I couldn't say what!
    I actually like it. The tweed waistcoat and wool tie provide a crossover from the smart work look, to the casual denim jacket. It definitely works as a layering piece. I guess you need to be happy that it looks good without the denim jacket too though, as presumably you won't be wearing that in work?

    The only think that doesn't work for me is the tie knot with the penny collar. I like both individually, but they don't work together. I think it's that the knot is too big for the collar. And I'm not a huge fan of monkstraps, but that's just my personal preference.

    Benjie, love the colour of that suit. I don't really get to wear them often but I've been meaning to get a decent cobalt blue/dark purple suit sometime in the near future.

    What the hell is wrong with you?! Haha I kid.

    And thanks for feedback y'all.
    I always get the shirt thing whenever I post it on here. However that tie would be swamped by a 'normal' shirt collar and look out of place even more, so I always opt to wear this shirt if I am wearing a skinny(ier) tie. I know it's not exactly following 'the rules' but to the people who see me at work each day it doesn't look out of place. I appreciate on a fashion forum it's a bit of a no go though!

    But yeah thank you all for the feedback on it!

    Got fall in the air today, though I hear there will be summer heat in the afternoon.

    Thanks! The chinos are actually too short, but I haven't found another pair in this shade, so I've kept them in my rotation.
