I'm no expert but it makes you look like you have no neck. Unzipped looks really good though.

THe struggle

 

Looking bulky (what you think isn't good for fashion) = muscles + higher bodyfat%

Muscular physique that most people still think look good = muscle + low bodyfat%

 

If you just want to look like you lift weights and still fit into clothes, it could be a point to not build your legs too much. I hate to say this but it would make more sense to focus on the chest, arms, shoulders and upper back. Kgfan does not have huge wheels but he do have a built upper.

If you want to pursue both, I would simply focus on building the muscles you think look good and allow you to fit into the clothes you like, while you keep a eye on what you eat and do some cardio.

I guess we can add bene posting a fit that just gets thumbs or ignored, instead of immediate critique/suggestions, to the list of pigs flying and hell freezing.

WAYWT would be pretty dull without the commentary.

 

@afixedpoint tuck in your shirt and that's golden. The little rumpled inch of fabric poking out looks more sloppy than casual.

I don't think you should tuck

I agree 100%, but with bene it's like he can try pretty much any fit at this point and there will for sure be 3-4 comments pertaining to something being off, advice being given, ridicule, etc. I don't really see that with anyone else.

Dude gets nitpicked harder than anyone else, basically.

It seems to fit right into your aesthetic (experimenting, on the EQ, with 50s nerd and coke dealer in various shades).

Those phone fades! They're jeans, then?

I dig the loafers, too. Just dab a little white paint on 'em and tell the internets they're ss margiela.

 

Yeah, styleforum seems to hate those shoes but I agree that if I could call them MMM opinion might be different. I missed out on the linen MMM loafers that Regis has, so these are sort of a stand-in but I also like the 1950s/1970s old man vibe they give off, with a bit of IDGAF thrown in for good measure. They probably look better with a beach background than a city background. Or maybe I need to be standing in front of a brown MKIII Cortina to get my point across.

Correct, that's what they are. They're a little more "workwear" than might be appropriate for this fit (considered cream linen trousers instead) but I think they work with the nautical vibe you get from the white & navy, if you think about it that way.

It's because he could change a couple simple things, like hemming his pants properly and not wearing all black, that would fix pretty much every fit. Most of the criticism stems from those two things imo even if the poster doesn't realize it.

yeah i feel that while bene has made huge progress since he's been here, he's still just slightly off of looking excellent in most of his fits, because of a few minor details. in the last bomber fit, i would say try to bisect the top and bottom halves more deliberately, like high waisted pants then a white shirt tucked in, instead of having the sweater hanging out of the bottom of the bomber.

but yeah i understand where you're coming from Moo, he does invoke a much stronger reaction than the average poster.
