Speaking of most-thumbed-up posts, I miss MoK's posts.

^ and that one is the best!

 

I sent him a PM awhile ago and haven't heard back. It looks like he was last online a couple weeks ago but his last post was mid-may and the last one before that was mid-march.

 

 

I have no idea what happened to him but the intermittent posting/logging on probably suggests he wasn't hit by a car or anything and is just taking a break. puzzled.gif

If I go with a size bigger I don't think it'll be too loose on the body, will it?

go smaller. At least one size. I have a 42" chest, own 3 mediums, and they stretch out instantly. I considered going down to a small, but I don't have the body for it shog[1].gif

I believe kunk wears smalls.

never owned a rick tee but have tried on. very different. rick t's are much thinner and have modal or some other shit in them. silent t's are all 100% cotton so far as I know, and are not really prone to self-detonation or whateverthefuck with the exception of the double layer tank from last fall which I own, the top layer is left unfinished and has lots of fraying/distressing...i guess if one wanted to expedite that whole process you could but i tried to not let it tear to shreds. I really don't like it though and should sell it....

Another thought on this -- SW&D fits have a greater potential to stand out since there isn't any constraint like "well it has to be a suit, to start" that we deal with. So people doing more outlandish fits will get a lot of thumbs if it's done well, and one outlandish fit isn't likely to resemble another (ie someone's Yohji fit compared to MoK above, or myself). A really well-executed MC look and another really well-executed MC look, on the other hand, are likely both going to be suits so the overall look will be similar with the differences being fabrics, texture, colors, etc.

 

Plus SW&D seems to appreciate context in a way that MC doesn't. The few times I've posted over there, I've gotten comments like "crop your photos" that clearly demonstrate that they just care about the clothes themselves. That isn't bad necessarily, but it contributes to a lot of the fits ending up looking similar.

 

Finally, it seems like the MC thread runs at a much faster pace. I think they just have more users overall, and more of them posting on a daily basis. So that lowers the potential for a wide audience to stumble upon a really great fit at any given time. There's just too much to wade through.

 

I'm generalizing obviously, but I think the above plays a part, at least, in why they don't use the thumbs the way we do.

^ They all look fine, I prefer 2 and 3. I was looking at your pics for a good minute before I realized that you're not wearing a ruffled shirt... just a patterned one.
post #60881 of 109053
I agree with all the comments

3 > 2 only because it is summer otherwise 2
post #60882 of 109053
I would say three. Do you have a silk blazer by any chance? I actually think those cocoa MMMs (?) might kind of be throwing everything off, or not gelling with the grey jacket or something. I'm also not entirely down with the giant patch pockets. The third needs some color, though. Like a ridiculous purple paisley pocket square.
post #60883 of 109053
thanks guys I think Ill go with 3 and maybe add some color shog[1].gif

and ya shirt has a floral pattern, not rumpled

I had this cotton/slik blazer but it turned out to be too small, so bummed

I actually like the first one.
I don't like the dark jacket with the light colored pants of the second one. Makes you look like going to the office.
I don't like the brown shoes with dark pants and light jacket of the third one. It makes you look old.
The first one makes you look young and fresh. Add a color with a tie, maybe an orange one.
post #60885 of 109053
pants are actually navy if that changes anything
