Right now, 'tis the season for jeans and boots. Lurk B+S, there are some really good deals, and most of the sellers here are stand-up gents.

Buy boots instead. Buy slimmer pants, as well. Buy a slimmer sweater, if you like, because that one doesn't look good - American Eagle?. There's a thread with recommendations for pants, one for boots, and one for shoes. Follow Hendrix's advice. And get rid of the pumas.

There are lots of "non-ballers" on SF (dislike the phrase) who look incredibly good on a very regular basis, so don't worry about that.

Right now it looks like nothing fits you, which could be because it doesn't, or it could be because of the freshman 15. Either way, the better you look naked, the better you'll look in clothes. Nothing wrong with uniqlo janwz, boots, and a sweater + coat when you're a student, as long as it fits you. People are gonna tell you to buy margiela, RO, whatever - don't, unless you're sure you want it. The internet is a dangerous place, and nothing will look good until you learn what looks good on you.

Also - I would think about growing your hair out.

wow. so much good advice to digest. Thanks!

1) I asked for some Katahdins for christmas (gotta milk the christmas cow as long as I can). I knew I would need boots for walking around campus in the winter and a lot of people here seemed to like them. Hope they pass the waywt jury.
2) Slimmer pants are on my list (if I posted a fit with my jawnz fit I think you might say they are too tight)
3) Sweater is some random brand I got off yoox for like $30. It fits slimmer than most of my other tops, guess I need to start buying slimmer stuff.
4) you calling me fat? I'm probably a little chubbier than I should be but I'm pretty short too so weight really shows on me. fwiw I race bikes and spend 15-20 hours a week training).
5) I've tried growing my hair out in the past but it turns into a "helmet" of hair (I'll see if I can find a pic). The best look I've found is a pretty short buzz cut (waiting until I go home for winter break to get it cut again).

-Don't worry too much about the WAYWT "jury" a lot of it is photo skills and GIFT. However it's useful to make sure you've got your shit down. -If bad weight (fat) shows on you easily then good weight (muscle) will show on you easily as well. Get your diet in check and start lifting. -Try shit on before you buy it. -Uniqlo.

I think the sweater is making me look chubbier than I really am. I don't have the massive love handles that sweater seems to show. I can't really start lifting as more upper body mass is the opposite of what I need to do for cycling. I just need to be better with my diet (nights out are killing me right now) and shave the fat so I can look like this guy.

Your last two points are kind of contradictory. I can't try uniqlo shit on because I don't live in New York. I'd like to take a trip there at some point, but it isn't really in the cards right now.

A good direction for you would be to start emulating Kvc06 style. Get slimmer chinos, wear some bootymabobs, grow hair out slightly and you can do that college kid hunter/gatherer steez. Seriously, emulate him.

I actually like his style and we both picked up the same jacket a few weeks ago (totally on accident, although I think his fits a little better), so I'm off to a good start. I'm telling you guys my hair looks wack grown out though. But I'll let it go for a bit and throw up some pics.

I like that, nobunny. What's the bottom? Digging the hair, too.

Synth: Hehehe, I have sinned.. both scarf and sweater is from D&G. Warm as fuck and good-looking garments, though. Helps me get through the -25 celsius days......
post #27716 of 117677
I'm a little disappointed to discover that it's a scarf + sweater. Was hoping for super shawl sweater, but oh well. You look is pretty austere/severe, but it works for you.

buy softys jil coat if it fits or a +j coat from uniqlo just don't buy a peacoat and buy a color you can wear with everything like black or gray
post #27718 of 117677

I think I'm also getting a cpo shirt jacket type thing for christmas and I just got a green utility jacket (the one kvc wears), so I think I'm going to pause on outerwear for a while. Next year I'll look into something similar to softy's jil coat (that thing is dope).

Nix a peacoat, get a capable hairdresser, look at aeglus and mellowfellow and hordes of other super-stylish self professedly "short" dudes for how to not look stubby.

Did anyone get a chance to check out Bally's F/W knits for this year? They're not super original, but stunningly nice in person. Holy crap. Additionally, I was not impressed with prorsum's seeming outerwear quality, but, Nobunny, everything I handled from D&G this year (and gucci) seemed absolutely stellar (if not exactly my joint).

And, on a related front, Zara has like a department devoted to seam-for-seam prorsum rips. Oh, and some Rodarte sweaters with this hideous acrylic yarn. Shameless, and barf-worthy materials. That being said, too bad the closest one is in New York.

gonna tuck R&B long johns into ma socks into ma CP boots for all y'all tonight, just so you know. Additionally, progress on the linen fremen robe is going swimmingly, thank you very much for asking. Basting is done; time to fire up the machine, line it, and get some horn toggles up in this bitch. Mm-mm.
