IIRC the burned building is a hotel that is part of the CCTV complex and the one you've forgotten the name of is actually the CCTV headquarters.

Great shot, great look. Another look that proves me wrong by showing lighter boots can look good.

At least the fit is good and the outfit is distinctive, well composed and attractive.

Oh wait...

imo you need to mix the vintage style japanese workwear stuff in.. when you go all out you just look dorky as hell. I don't know if that sweatshirt can ever look good on someone though =/ which could be the problem. also I maintain that wallet feathers/chains/whatever are retarded

There's a TON of carrot action going on here. The top block looks fine but as the thighs aren't slim they become exaggerated by the narrow legs. You could either try to slim up the knees/thighs a bit more, wear them lower on your waist for more of an anti-fit look, or just start from scratch. Saddly, I think my recommendation would be the latter. The original problem: was that this body was more of a relaxed/regular fit. The calves looked odd because they were rigid and stacking at the hem because they were too long. If you would have just had a few inches taken off the bottom this probably would have fixed a most of the problem. Also, it's hard to get a decent idea of what's going on when you stand with your legs wider than your shoulders. It further exaggerates the carrot effect. Personally, if there's a fit you have in mind try posting it here or better yet in the "I Have a Jean" thread. You can take a look through the WAWYN thread for examples or even our online affiliates. I think it might save you some time and money if you had a good idea in mind of what you wanted instead of buying a regular jean and trying to carve something unnaturally from it.

Thanks. Pics were taken in South Carolina where I spent the weekend. It was rainy and cold the entire weekend.

I originally sized up on this and the sleeves were a little longer but I had to wash it and it did shrink down a decent bit. I'm actually more pleased with the post-wash fit for whatever it's worth.

Different strokes for different folks, honestly. Wouldn't change any of it up really.

Comments like this are the worst...

While I don't love the outfit, I don't think he really looks like a hipster. He paid a lot of money for high quality clothes, and couldn't have found the equivalent without searching for a very long time, and paying similar prices for deadstock. The glasses might be a little hipster but I feel like in the context of the outfit they are not.

Also the sleeves on the sweatshirt are meant to be shorter, so to point that out is irrelevant as it's part of the aesthetic he's going for.

The nylon jacket has a hood.

xchen, good to see you posting again. Non bro fits, at least.
