Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Sorry for phone pic and cigarette, was on my way out the door and no long mirrors in the apartment.
I'm not posting this to show off, i'm just trying to figure out how to wear collared shirts that don't button down under a sweater, is this acceptable? It looks weird to me, but it's less strangling than other arrangements and they all look equally wrong to me. still trying to get the hang of "casual" clothing.
Let me correct myself, had the shoulders been brought in slightly, and had the cut been a little shorter from collar to hem, the jacket would have most definitely been more form fitting while open (it wouldn't have to wrap around my ass which has a considerably bigger circumference than my upper waste). The A-2 was made for aviators, and these are dudes that weren't very scrawny necessarily. Though the A-2 is considered boxy by modern standards, and it doesnt look as sleek as a moto or whatever on a bigger person, I don't think they are out of place on someone with a bigger frame. Though a boxy person may become boxier, it's a matter of acquired taste. And A-2s have a bad reputation thanks to overweight dads and I think its hard to shake the prejudice.
