TOOK YOUR GUYS advice but with my personal style - Page 15

post #211 of 217
The Taiwan guy's outfit still looks gangster because of the fedora and isn't appropriate for everyday wear, but actually looks quite good. The difference is that his suit fits well.

D2K, there's a bit of a slim-fit obsession on this board (definitely applies to me as well), but maybe you can compare the fit of that suit to the fit of yours and see that most of your clothes shown in your pictures are too baggy.

If the kid has the cajones to go with the look, my hat is off to him. He looks like a young, twitchy-fingered rod-man who just walked out of a Chandler novel, and that is not all bad in my book. This world has become so boring in its homogeneity that I applaud attempts at novelty.

You look good, kid. Go for it.

I for one never had a problem with both a graduation with honors and poor writting skills but that never seemed to slow my desire at communications.

Last I understood the function of words was to communicate with others and I think everyone has understood this mans request just fine but not all care for his words or the way he accepts advise.

I wish to speak concerning the hat. Its simply beautiful and yet it does not suit your frame size.

The high crown wide brim hats do generally look best but this one is a bit overwhemling . A couple minutes with a rounding jack, pair of sizzors or razor blade how ever could cut that brim down to match your shoulder width and frame better. If at that point the brim seems to tall and I am not sure it would, then you can simply "bash" style it down a bit lower and it will be beautiful.

As far as the clothing they all look nice on you but as you commented early on some of the clashes occuring. I think you can get the look you want exactly and by all means the hat is the intrigral part of it as well as the sensible one. Unless you want to wear an umbrella when it looks like rain or get sun cancer and die young and leave a perty corpse I would keep the hat first and make the suits work with it.

We're all trying to help, but we end up doing it differently. Some end up being the 'immature jackasses', the others end up as patron saints. So what happens now? D2K splits the forum right down the middle. I say he was sent by FL to sabotage this forum.

I meant Fedora Lounge, whoops.

Well you have misunderstood the mission of the Fedora Lounge. They are a group of gentlemen there and all in harmony. I can assure you that regardless of their reputation at being a bunch of pompous people that pretend to all have intimate knowlege of all hats while having none.

I wish to put that rumor to rest as it is not true. Some of them do know a few things about a few hats.

Such is the victory of the common voice bringing down that of talent and reason.

Further, you will constantly meet people who tell you that you are too young, too old, too short, too tall, too dark, too light, too smart, too... You only have one life, you can let other's whose lives are potentially in shambles live it for you, or you can do what you want and damn the consequences. It's up to you.

"Dandy" is just another word for self assured individualist. If you hear the music you need apologize to no one.
FNB you speak as a very wise man. I applaud your elogence in speech and your formation of words into something of great substance.

One may say you are Dandy. I would say you are Dandy.
