In regards to the shoes. he is wearing a pinstripe suit i.e. business; the shoes aren't very formal or professional. On top of that it seems that he just tried to throw every sartorial bell and whistle on. The fold on the PS screams look at me. The color combo screams look at me. His watch and cufflink have matching colors. Ticket pocket is another gizmo. It seems like this guy skipped the basics and went right into the advanced stuff. It looks like he is trying way to hard.

Actually, I appreciate your input and your honesty. Your notes on the fit are noted, but some of this may be attributed to my stance and the fact that I didn't pull down the shirt cuffs. The color of the tie is a strong purple, so not to everyone's taste. The PS is not as loud IRL - the color doesn't come out well on my iPhone. The shoes, let's agree to disagree.

I would be the king in this thread if I posted pics everyday. Who else would wear a suit around here with an Under Armor cold gear shirt?

Of course I don't dress by popular opinion and never will. I mix and match all kinds of stuff. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. That's the fun of it all right?

I agree with this. I've seen a lot of outfits that, in my opinion, look like a train wreck and yet I read some very positive comments from SFers about them. It only serves to bolster the confidence of those that are so very confused to begin with. I would hope that, if I ever get around to posting on WAYWT, people will have the decency to be honest with me. If I can't take the criticism then I shouldn't post in the first place. I don't think that anyone is gong to jump off a bridge because some total strangers criticized their clothing.

I'll post soon so that you can all have at me.

I'm going to have a good WAYWN poast on Thursday.

For those of us not sitting on our porches reminiscing, can someone give me a clue as to where to find the good old days of WAYWT where the standards were consistently higher than today. I'm blowed if I can find it. Yes there's a seasonal aspect - summer fits have always been more casual but that's about all I can see trawling back.

As to people always responding badly to constructive criticism - apart from one incident, or mooment, I can't remember seeing any of this but maybe I've got as selective a memory as the 'going downhillers'...

Well, it would be nice if iammatt, edmorel, manton, whnay, a harris, and certain others that escape my memory, started posting regularly again. I guess that was considered the "Golden Age of the Old Guard" which actually coincided with when I started posting. And then it went downhill from there.

I foolishly believe that rather like the global economy, we hit rock bottom a while back and are well on the way back up again in terms of interesting WAYWT posts. Can't wait for winter again. I think I actually managed to sweat out every drop of liquid possible today in the HK heat.

What I find vaguely devastating and possibly offensive are people who do "casual" or streetwear fairly adeptly, but then put them in a suit or something approaching conservative, and it might as well be an aborted fetus. This is particularly true when such young people get a job or internship and have to dress for this office environment.

It's fine for an anonymous sock puppet like Diavolo to do it but whenever it's an established poster, it's just taken the wrong way. Moreover, what's the point? It's like swimming upstream. There are so many praising comments and thumbs up from noobs and "nice guys" for outfits and posters with terrible taste that the ugliness just perpetuates. Last point, that thread is not a "Critique my outfit" thread. Many posters (most I'd say) post for validation rather than for advice. So who wants to be the douche giving unrequested advice? I guess I prefer to assess the general trend rather than pick on people in the thread. You think that's less useful - I may disagree.
- I agree with everything so far

Hence my stance from day one.. too much BUKAKE.. I know I for one have been vocal about it.. In off forum discussion with some members I have asked them why they encourage the crap that is going on & I was told that is "the game you have to play to get positive feedback" as well as "need to share the love".. I said FUK EM this is not some political race.. I'm just confused how posters can not see the difference? Maybe we should stop BUKAKE & encourage more critique?

Works the other way around too. "Friday casual" is reliably a trainwreck in the vast majority of corporate America.

That is interesting. What do you do with positive feedback? I don't get any so I wonder what I have been missing.

Well said. And feedback will not only benefit many of the posters but also improve the quality of the average posts.

I'm not sure if you are joking or serious with your question, but I'll answer anyway. In my case, it was information overload at the beginning, so indications of what I was doing right were equally as helpful as identifying where things have gone wrong.

I don't know why I keep posting on this subject. The feedback I've gotten in the threads (especially in the beginning) has been very valuable to me. It has really helped me transform my entire wardrobe and begin to cultivate a style that I'm excited about. I guess I hope that more people will have the positive experience that I had, and seeing people improve over time is pretty cool.

Well I agree on seeing more of ed & possibly a harris, but I don't think the rest of the bunch were really doing things leaps above what is being posted now. I think that PG, Neo, Cravatte and some others are just as impressive if not more so.

I agree that it should not just be a love fest no matter what's being posted. I usually choose to not comment in most cases that I'm not a fan.

Sorry but what's BUKAKE used to refer to within SF? Search function is not being kind.
