In all seriousness, there are times I feel I just have a bad eye for clothes, because I find myself wondering if I am looking at the same fits that generate endless "bravos" and "superbs".. There are some truly fantastic dressers here, iammatt, yfyf, yourself, foof, edmorel, PG, neo, but from time to time, I just find myself thinking I am just out of touch for not appreciating fits that seem to generate raves.. Maybe I am too old for this message board shit..
I'm late to the party, but + a zillion.

This could be true - my own photography is variable and often redeemed by backgrounds and context - though I usually take my inclusion to mean that Bill is more interested in the outfit, such as this week, where my specs look is in mild sepia and is clearly poorly lit and set

I rather liked reading Greg's dissection of PG's style. He nailed a lot of truths in it, I believe. There's also a significant expression of Phatty's tastes in his outfits, wherein he matches a need or desire for simplicity and sophistication in cuts and colours with an eye for tailoring details and plays enthusiastically, though reasonably discreetly, with pattern and texture. He wears 'em slim and lightly structured rather than tight and figure-sculpting, which captures a relaxed and weather-appropriate attitude to clothes and the very act of wearing them. Bill's descriptive term of masculine is an apt signifier for PG's approach - nothing overly fashionable; rather traditional in Western terms; practical; relatively simple; decisive (one can tell that his appearance is calculated to his specifications rather easily) and neat and clean-cut without appearing fussy (this is obviously reflected in his personal grooming)

And composition is also a key component

I never said I didn't want, just that I didn't act on those impulses..

If i've learned anything from this forum, I've learned not to ask for it.....unless you really want to hear opinions.

Voxsartoria's Weekly WAYWRN Subjective and Totally Unfair Digest for the Week Ending 07/24/2009


Main section:








































Special commendation for baby steps:





Best candidate for desktop wallpaper:




PG thought of the week:



Dégagé, sprezzatura, or whatever you call it...few, if any, exemplify or pictorially represents this more than PG. For most of us, our eyes have become used to what are common elements to his look.









But...what would your reaction be if you saw these things for the first time in reality without reference to the steady diet of WAYWRN shots? Too much? Just right? Not enough?


Gratuitous joie de vivre:




Cheesecake shot of the week (your choice):

Personally, I think my brain has a crossed wire when it comes to the undone BD collar thing. I just don't "get it". Not that it looks bad (PG always looks good!) , but I just don't really think it says anything more than "that guy deliberately left his collar buttons undone". Still, I guess PG shows it can work with an overall look at times.

Well, we start with the presumption that PG always looks great...which is why I cruelly have volunteered him for the thought of the week sub-column.

But it's not just the collar undone...there are other informalizing elements that are often in the bunch as well.

Compare to Foof when he undoes his BD collar. The effect is not the same, don't you agree?

Is this because (a) so much life leaks through in the type of photography PG does compared to nearly everyone else, (b) once you go sprezz, you should go all the way, or (c) PG has successfully translated OCD into a stylistic opposite.

All three?
