lolz, i think everyone has already touched on these points. you've just sprinkled them with a bit of the ol mikey vitriol

I want to throw some five-year-olds into kaplan's apartment (via trebuchet or something) so they can mar those pristine white walls with crayon and mud

i think it might be the the downward camera angle exaggerating that. i like the fit, hendrix.

kaplan and kg, strong stuff guys. i like the slightly loose look of kgs jacket.

I think that some of you guys - I won't name names - are being unnecessarily rude to Diglet. Allow me to expand:

1) Re: Setting. Verdant forest? Overgrown bench? Crumbling tree house in the background? That is awesome. Would you prefer a curated background? More bokeh? We can't all have walls like kgfan.

2) Blazer. I cannot imagine wearing that without the collar popped. The shoulders, while not as shrink-wrapped as people (still!) seem to insist on, I find pleasant. I like a wide shoulder like that, though, particularly on blazers that toe the line between cardigan and outerwear. The sleeves are similar. Yes, they're too long, but a single roll wouldn't be incongruent with the texture or shape of the jacket.

3) The tees are tees.

4) The pants are the only piece that look off to me, and that's nothing a hem won't fix.

5) boot tuck is whatever. hemming the pants and lacing more tightly would fix it up. I still like tucking my pants, fuck the haters.

Basically, it is not a disaster, which seems to be the bizarre consensus. I think that looking at some attachment styling would help, but there's no reason to get rid of everything, especially if the kid is "still growing." Myself, I'd probably just wear a white tee instead of layering, and change out the pants for something less messy. Easy breezy, and all that.

^ Agreed, blazer looks good slouchy due to the material (i'd still shorten the sleeves slightly).

you all say that now, but when diglet finds his size 3 kka blazer, you will be sliced by the sharpness, trust

Thank you Synthese.

It's not perfect, but I think it's better than some others I've seen throw on an 'approved brand' and get a million thumbs

It's certainly possible! I just don't think it looks that bad as-is.

Really appreciate that Synth.

 

Yes, I'm still young, growing, and going to be on a year-long bulk (freshman year) so I'm positive that most of my clothes will fit a bit better than they do now. I know that my fits aren't even close to perfect and I'm really just looking for a bit of feedback from you guys without having to consider throwing all of my shit out. So please, help me feel a bit more welcome here since I honestly haven't tried to provoke any of you guys far enough to crack jokes about using my mother's backyard. 

 

Yes, I will hem the sleeves of the KKA blazer, and yes, I will hem the DNA pants. Otherwise, I still love the way the blazer fits.

^ AFAIK freshman year "bulk" is all around the tummy, no lie
post #100679 of 117670

Going to continue weight lifting religiously so I'm not too worried about that. Just need the extra calories.

I don't get it. You are buying your shirts too small, and are then surprised that they don't fit?
