From the looks of it, you're a slightly older dude (my apologies if I'm mistaken) – that sweatshirt looks very basic, but really nice. It looks like you maybe pulled the hem down, which makes it look a little tighter than it probably is. I don't think there's anything wrong with it at all. Just looks like a comfortable sweatshirt, which isn't a popular aesthetic on a gothninja-leaning forum full of 135lb 22-year-olds.

The pants could use a cuff or something, though. Otherwise it's v normcore.

I'm 44 in a month so I suppose that's old to some. But no excuse to not have a clean, well-executed wardrobe.

Over the past five years or so I've enjoyed filling my closet with nice stuff. MMM, Raf, some Prada, EG, OL, Beams, Jil, and more recently SLP. But I spent many years of my life very heavy and very out of it both stylistically and just in general. Now I'm getting back to a weight I like (165) but the downside of that is that so much of what's in my closet doesn't fit well anymore.

I'm lucky that I've been successful enough as a musician to travel around the world (as far as Japan and NZ) and I'm not showing any signs of stopping. So my goal is to look as good as I can while making and performing music while maintaining a level of age-appropriatness. It sounds tricky but I believe it can be done.

Hoping to glean some tips and direction from this forum while trying not to tax you all's patience.

Thanks for hearing me out and I look forward to looking better good.

Tg, I think that fit was just a bit too washed out.
Maybe some black, dare I say, denim *gasp* would work better.
White Button up+sweatshirt+black pants+sneakers

Can we get a Close up shot of the marni? Any interesting details?

It's got a cool (slight) wrinkle effect that I didn't think I would like but has proved to be kind of nice. And I just liked the whole straightness it has and the plain, minimal cut.

I like the idea of a button up underneath. I don't want to keep pushing the whole I-used-to-be-fat thing, but because of that fact I would never have considered that option. But while it's still cool enough out I think I just might. Thanks again.

Thanks, raags. Hope this hasn't strayed too off-topic.

Cheers.

Did you take a fitpic right after getting laid, man?

debating whether to keep navy or army green mix...two seems like overkill

Army green is more interesting!!
post #115331 of 117677

Thanks, nicelynice. I'm leaning that way, especially since I already have some other navy knits.

post #115332 of 117677
Yes, green looks way better

At first I was going to suggest you check the MC side of SF, given your age, but so many of those guys are really stuffy and you're probably not interested in wearing pocket squares, or getting the perfect lapel width. Instead, I'd suggest you take inspiration from some of the older members who occasionally post in this thread and manage to look well dressed while still looking their age.

+1 for the laceless Margiela version, Chet. I would of said navy...but since you said you have others, green is the way to go
