my issue is my larger derrière seems to necessitate a larger size waist, which then makes the legs wider than optimal. im going to order these in a size smaller and hope they fit and look slimmer, and return whatever size is less awesome looking on me. if i need to stay with these, ill taper the legs. same for the black levis i think.
lmao, what do you not like about the stark underneath? i think its a cool look.
lawlz. yes and no. the general decrease in rigidity is nice, but when MC stuff fits right, its plenty comfy. plus, my tie is rarely done all the way up during the day.
OH NOES!! DONT BAN ME MC!!post #115361 of 1176664/8/14 at 10:41amQuote:Originally Posted by AlexanderTG
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.
1) Dress like you want, this dude doesn't need a collar at 65 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/06/nyregion/clayton-patterson-rebel-and-photographer-plans-to-leave-the-lower-east-side-for-europe.html?_r=1
2) With that said, a clean look I like in an adult who behaves like an adult (not an adulescent) but doesn't want to dress like a e-gentleman (an adolescent fantasy of what an adult is like), is a crisp white dress shirt everyday with a pair of dark or black jeans, simple boots (like MMM zips or maybe those SLP motorcycle ones) and a nice sweatshirt or simple sweater. Add a leather or parka or something that has been worn for a while and you have a winner.post #115362 of 1176664/8/14 at 10:53ampost #115363 of 1176664/8/14 at 10:54ampost #115364 of 1176664/8/14 at 10:55am
Before I joined SF, I wasn't anywhere near as picky about the way things fit me. I had RTW stuff tailored, but that was more about appearance than comfort. And there was a definite difference in comfort between when I was wearing a suit and tie and when I wasn't. Now, on the rare occasions I buy rtw, I am very particularly about ease of motion within it. As stitchy says, it depends on how well it fits. With most of my stuff, I can't feel a difference in comfort, even with my tie tightened and my jacket buttoned. That being said, it's pretty much all made for me (and all shirts are). I doubt I'd be saying this if that weren't the case.
And I'm willing to bet that if I wore braces, MC would be more comfortable than something with jeanspost #115365 of 1176664/8/14 at 10:56amQuote:Originally Posted by YOLO EMSHI
So I've been putting off posting fits because I only have a camera phone to take photos with plus was going to wait to get my hair cut but fuck it. Although it is disappointing that I can't show detailed shots of the apron from the back because the layers are pretty fucking awesome there. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
