I feel like kelvin could pull off that pretty well.

Thanks, Moo. You're close up texture shots have inspired mine in WAYWT's btw.

Haha not sure about next level, but I love this thing. It's the one Gilt offered at their last sale. Luckily, whoever had it in their cart before me decided to let it go...phew. The fit and details on this are really nice.

I'm with you on my initial observations too. No online pics did it for me, but I decided to take a chance on it during Context's latest flash sale. The colors are much more muted and nicely overlapped onto one another in person. It's also a bit thicker than the blue/red/white plaid I have that Context was also selling which is nice. If you find it in your size I'd recommend it.

Looking good, kelvin. Shoes are Grenson Kirks right? I love the that Kirk model.

I find moo's, gavroche, and braid's (to a lesser extent) photos to be processed to the point of distraction. Seems overwrought and somehow takes some of the fun out of it, as stupid as that sounds.

I tend to agree. I don't mind a little bit of enhancement, but at a certain point, the aesthetics of the photography start to overshadow and distract from the actual fit, imo. I think Gavroche's pics strike a pretty good balance, though.

I can see what you mean, but I don't know how it takes the fun out of it. There is no fun to be had. My photos are rarely as heavily processed as that one. I provided two other photos to show correct color/texture. I have another photo that isn't so processed - are you interested in seeing it? Non-processed photo: Definitely different. I was going for a more weathered/studio look in the post-processing. It isn't for everyone, but it's the best I could do to substitute natural light shadow and texture play.

Should go with a more formal knot. A) I prefer symmetrical knots with more formal fits (suits and the like), B) A thicker knot will eat up a lot more of the tie length and it'll look better (shouldn't go past the pants). Good fit on the jacket though, just the right amount of cuff showing and whatnot, could possibly take off .5"-1" from the trousers.

I simply don't like it when I can tell that a waywt photo has been processed at all. With gavroche its a combination of the 'dynamic' pose, the jacket on/jacket off, and the obvious contrast adjustments that are not in keeping with the don't care vibe that the fit itself suggests. The guy looks good, I just don't want to be forced to come to terms with the fact that he (and I, sometimes) spends more than 30 seconds to put up a picture. Doesn't look easy enough, that's what I mean by takes the fun out of it.

I see. Interesting points, and you certainly are entitled to your own opinions. Just as an FYI, the post-processing in my photo took less than 30 seconds and I did not use a pre-set.

Despite not necessarily being a fan of the individual items in this fit, in general, this looks really great to me. Especially at a laundromat, ballin'. Can't be arsed to keep quoting @Tonio: Great. Love the sweater and the pants. It's so casual and cool, yet unique, inspiration. @Kelvin: Looks good but I think you could have used a pocket square with a square fold without being too flashy if you wanted to, and an inch shorter on the tie wouldn't have hurt. But I'm just nitpicking, I've never worn anything other than OTR suits personally and your fit looks really really good.

Not the point, it isn't how long it took its the fact that it took any time at all.

nah, four in hand looks best 99% of the time. It could definitely stand to be tighter at the base of kelvin's knot there, though.

the only people who should wear a knot other than 4ih are politicians and the reason isn't because it looks good
