Parker's fit truly is amazing.

 

Also, the questions someone asked earlier about black Acne Max Cash rubbing off on white CP's - they don't.

 

At least when i've worn mine with grey suede CP's they haven't.

regardless, i fully agree to the content of your post.
you are being stupid. its not a competition, but there are thumbs for posts and there is a stats page that keeps track, and like all records, its interesting and fun when they stand to be broken. that is the nature of stat keeping.

the problem with thumbs is that it makes people way to focused on specific feedback. you can tell when people are just thumb-hunting.

not sure of teger's reasoning, but i see it as an adoption of social media platforms which, for me, was not the point when i so recently joined this forum. i guess there's something to be said for the evolution of a static BBS but this rather nullifies meaningful discourse, allowing users to lazily click a button. given a lot of the commentary that might be actually work out to be a net positive, but i still wish it wasn't such a recurse point of focus. discussions about how many clicks a post received are the worst kind, as is most self-reflective content (Synthesetic creativy being a wonderful and welcomed exception). it's still a fun system to see who clicks what, so maybe in that regard it's useful and can maybe translate into some more commercial applications of this forum which is something else i don't care for but that's not my business anyway. its only salvation is the shadow community -- give back the thumbs commentary !

I know I'm just echoing what has been said over and over but that Parker fit is fantastic...

So nice to see something different that is pulled off well.

i fail to see the problem.

meaningful feedback is still given all the time here, and there is plenty of very useful and helpful conversation, thumbs notwithstanding. obviously thumbs are generic and there is no way to no why someone is thumbing a post, and sure there are times when as you put it, there is thumb hunting, but the fact remains, we have thumbs, people like to count them, people like to issue them when they enjoy something about a post or a fit, and hence, they carry a certain amount of interest. at least to me, and to many others i would assume.

when i saw you liked tegers post, i thought this was where you were going. i agree, the thumb comments were fun, and even sometimes valuable and productive, and its a shame they are gone, and yes thumbs are now more non specific. but as you said, its fun. its another form of mindless entertainment, and who doesnt enjoy a little bit of mindless entertainment in their life?

I'd still like to find a way that I can wear un-tucked shirts and a blazer for a casual look. 

 

I suppose Oxford cloth shirts are not right. I know that whenever i've attempted to pair them with any of my Lanvin chinos/trousers they don't feel right at all. 

 

Though I think the blazers I own, while some are unstructured, are still not 'slouchy' enough for what I am picturing.

Yep Eli, go for barena/eg type blazers. Yours have too structured shoulders. Shirts have been too "smart casual" to be tucked out. And as always the stiff pose doesn't help. Prob looks better irl.
post #104037 of 117666
yeah, the shirt is just as important as the jacket to make that work. the only shirts i wear untucked with my bedford is my eg shirt, which is short enough and has super high gussets, so it can't be tucked anyway. but yeah, your shirts needs to be significantly shorter than the blazer. otherwise it looks lazy. AFL has some blazer/untucked shirt fits, although he usually layers a cardigan in there as well.

re: the thumb discussion---

sometimes it's hilarious to see what else on the internet gets "thumbs"

like, a quick trip to other forums or comment threads puts eeeeverything in perspective
post #104039 of 117666
eli, i dont recall all your fits, but maybe shirts that are shorter in length would work better untucked.

but tbh, most untucked SC fits that i see work have non button down shirts.

edit - mikey beat me to it.

and plus one to more unstructured jackets.

nn - looks even better there, the lighting is better and i can see the colors and textures better now.
post #104040 of 117666
elisix that's better, but you're still straddling this weird streetwear/business casual vibe that comes off as strange. you should get some real tailored pants and a casual blazer (boglioli, lbm) if you want a more tailored look, or get something way casual like an EG bedford if you want to wear an untucked shirt. the wings + horns blazers have always had a shitty cut, which is half the problem. but even as it stands, you have a lot of pieces, you just need to learn how to style them in a way that looks good.
