@indesertum: oh well, they're Zara
one of the two decent zara shoes I've seen so far, with leather soles (and I might say, I paid them nothing, more or less)
@listi: single breasted
it is a COS (Collection of Style) coat
not sure how many people know about COS, because it is an European thing
basically, COS is owned by Hennes and Mauritz, better known as, well, you know, H&M
better materials, desing and cuts than H&M
I'm below your levels only because I don't have tens of thousands of spare dollars to spend on custom tailored blazers, jackets, stylist advice and what not. At least not yet.
It's not about money. It's about developing your eye. A key point that no one has raised so far is proportion. You are wearing a pencil-thin tie, with a very loose shirt. The shirt could be acceptable (bar the colour, sorry!) in a more conservative outfit, with a proportionally wide tie. With the skinny tie, it just looks way off.
Apartment lobby, before discovering that for the first time this week it's cold and grey:
Organ (nice one!), carpet, and lots of black- enjoying the contexual mismatch of black leather and Christmas?
As I've explained before this is a storage room filled with various instruments (including a piano against the other wall) and misc junk that I plan to get rid of. But I'm incredibly lazy so nothing has happened yet. The cheesy 1980's hotel style flowers in the gold vases were gifts from my mother in-law. Not the best place, but I often take pictures here since it's the only full length mirror I have in my house. Why are so many people here fixated on critiquing where a picture is taken and if the style matches the clothing? For example, once someone lobbed a ridiculous comment against Snake by pointing out his carpet and floorboard trim looked cheap relative to the Julius pieces he was wearing. If you want to buy into this line of reasoning, then here's some other things to consider.... 1. Do you live in an apartment? In most places in the US (outside of NYC), only poor people live in apartments. Not baller! 2. What kind of car to you drive? Do you drive some cheap little Japanese or European cracker box car when wearing your expensive pieces? Or perhaps you drive an SUV, just like soccer moms? Not baller! 3. Are you posting pictures of yourself to an Internet forum where 90% of the members dress poorly? Not baller!

I remember that. It was kind of funny, in the same way Uncontrol's first fit photo was: out of control Bowie gam rocker in a standard suburban bedroom. Cognitive dissonance, that's the phrase I was reaching for.

... thereby matching my mothers living room, with that same organ on one wall and a piano on the other. I wonder if that brand of organ went on special in the Northwest long ago.
Since no one else said it- the fit was worth re-quoting.
