well - maybe there is history there, so let me stop defending Spoozy and Scorch. Maybe i am naive in assuming that if someone with more credibility criticized them, they will find more value in it.

To be fair, I rarely post, so I don't get criticized. I have one "I rike" from PG back in the day, that I include in my CV and all applications for employment.

But: my beef is not with criticisms. It's with useless sniping that just fouls the atmosphere.

Splash out, Spooz.

Holy poop I agree with bigbris. Unless he's being sarcastic. I would say he's getting on towards Ornette Coleman, but the point remains. If you somebody only likes Dave Brubeck, fine, but don't be a jerk about it.

These are all great, but they lack exactly the dissonance that Spoozy brings to the table. My own style also rarely brings in dissonance, but I like it. Pink shoelaces and hot pink cashmere ties are also a rare treat from another Spoo.

I was keeping it 100. I like when a dude goes beyond the realm of what most consider comfortable or safe. Too many of the looks here are cookie-cut and boring. Sadly, most of the consistent critiques come from those members who don't "splash out". I don't want Spoozy or Spoo to change. If you notice, many of the fits I post go sans commentary except those more "safe" looks. I say embrace the hate. Case in point: When walking about town in one of my more splashed out ensembles, here's the reactions they garner: Whites (who consider themselves superior) look away, as if to say "he wants attention and I'm not giving it to him, harrumph!", not realizing that's a dead giveaway that they've already noticed me. Whites (normal or eccentric) generally are warm and smile. Guys walking with their girls make sure their chick isn't checking me out. Guys that feel they are comp, stand near me on teh train as if to say, "all of the attention will be in this direction, might as well get a piece". Blacks generally compliment and endear. Hispanics address me in their native tongue (Primo!) as if to say "he's def one of us or we want him on our side".

Thanks acecow. This was the second time I have worn these pants since having them tailored and I felt like they were about an inch too long (but was indecisive). Your comment has confirmed that they will be going back to the tailor along with the coat .

Would you hate me if I told you that I told you so?

I think that this will meet with your approval, then.

Some take their cues from the 40's & others the 60's, some Continental & others more Anglophile, some muted & others colorful. That's their style, and they should roll with it. Go all 70's Tom Ford if you want.

That's not to say, however, that no one is above a suggestion or two, even within their realm of style. I, for one, appreciate the random "tuck in that pocket square" and "suede chukkas would be better" and would rather hear that, than silence. I came to learn & incorporate pointers. Some are more pointed, caustic, and snarky, while others are more congenial. I've never understood the "silence" some people get - it does no good to the poaster, and certainly doesn't increase the quality of their poasts.

Of course, if your M.O. is just to poast and to ignore/lash out at suggestions, then forget everything I just typed.

^ Rob - in those photos it's interesting how the jacket looks excellent when unbuttoned, but when buttoned it seems unbalanced. Interesting fabric to it.

that fabric is anything but interesting, trust me.


rob, please get rid of that jacket. Your tailor hates it, I never want to see it. You know why!!

+1 - looks like front balance is off and someone is pulling down on the coat from the back.

Killer shirt, though!

+1000000. I would love to hear more critiques when I post here. If people who don't like my fits just ignore my posts, then this thread ceases to be useful. I came to this forum to learn; people here have affected more than just my choice of clothing. But after reaching a certain point it's hard to keep improving, because fits aren't terrible enough to gather a lot of negative comments and people tend to ignore them altogether. I, for one, try to express my opinion, be it negative or positive, as much as possible. And I hope it doesn't offend anyone.
