Ice cream doesn't travel well, but I'm in New York next week M - W so if you're back from your travels the gelatos are on me!
Tell you what - swop 'em for your president Mobutu leopardskin slippers in your next pic and I'll sing your praises to the heavens. Deal?
Aww c'mon man. If I seriously offended you then I apologise - was my comment really any worse than the oft used 'kill it with fire' comment we see on here?
But them yellow mules he borrowed off his Nana have got to GO!No amount of sprezz / don't give a toss / unorthodox quirky rule breaking can excuse them.
Yeah what he said! It's the 64 thousand dollar question really. There's a sweet spot at which legs look longer without shortening the torso but impossible to give a hard and fast rule and of course rise length migrates with the fashions.
[[SPOILER]] You've brought an interesting dimension to the board and I generally like the pics you've posted so far. The rise on your trousers seems awfully short, which may just be your personal stylistic choice, but where most of your other items seem to lean towards classic style, this feature is likely going to make your pics look very dated in a short time when the current trend for slim fit everything and very low rises cycles out of fashion.The pic you posted on the...
@ Isolation Please, for the love of god, do something about that prepubescent Juston Bieber helmet you've got on your head. I can't focus on any of your outfits with such abysmal looking barnet. I say this with genuine e-affection as I'm sure you're a good lad but its got to be done.

If the fit of this works for you then the extra details will only enhance the look. If the fit is off and can't be easily remedied then your money is better spent on a...
Just give it up man.You asked for advice, you've been given advice. It looks shit. There aren't too many looks in menswear that are objectively universally shit but this is one of them.Now either accept that and come up with a different idea for your date outfit or just go on your date and look like shit, but please don't keep arguing the toss. Believe me, I lived through the seventies and that John Travolta bollocks. It's shit!
