I like the glasses but I don't like the spread collar with jeans. Or spread collar at all for that matter.

the glasses actually look really good on you. but it starts to disintegrate from the waist down. cardigan is too slim -- look at how it's pulling away at the neck there. remember what we discussed? you need to cloak your slimness in a bit of volume. it will make you look 1000x more bitchin and confident. with the new glasses and cutaway collar, you look like you're about to knock some heads together and have a power lunch or two. but then this cardigan looks weird and juvenile. seriously, you would do better in some rakish suits, slight shoulder padding to punch up your silhouette, keep the glasses (they seem to add some weight to your ovoid face and draw it out horizontally).

but then man oh man what is this disaster on the bottom? looks like carpenter pants and super mario shoes. seriously, there seems to be some inner conflict where you want to mix it up with SWD and MC, but why oh why would you be wearing a spread collar and tie with some workwear shit? corny 2 tha max.

just incinerate everything from the waist down, get some slacks, then maybe a darker color cardigan with a bit more room. and don't button it all up, just leave it open and askew.

TRUST ME ON THIS

haha, yeah... fuck, the outfit doesn't really have any cohesion from top to bottom. top half was what I wore to work. bottom half was thrown on for the photo since the jeans had just arrived and I was trying them on. originally I was wearing navy cords, so not too much different. shoes not boots.

anyway, cardi was a $15 H&M experiment. ill try the unbuttoned look, maybe get a darker one too.

thanks heaps for all the advice. glad the glasses are working.

Softy was clowin, but his advice is really good. You need the cardigan to sit higher on your chest. As it is, it's not cut right for you. More importantly, your clothes do nothing to hide the fact that you're very skinny. In the way that a more corpulent man wouldn't want to wear clothes that emphasize his large stomach, you don't want to wear clothes that emphasize your small chest (I mean this constructively, not as an insult). All in all, it just kind of looks like you were dressed by the internet. I get the sense that you pieced together trends - raw jeans, striped tie, cut away collar, and hyper slim fits - but in a way that isn't coherent. It just looks trendy. Ties shouldn't be worn with jeans, generally. When it's worn as such, it just ends up looking more like fashion than style. I would do away with cardigans for your body type, as they're too tight fitting for your chest size, unless you're going to layer it underneath a coat. For that reason, I would actually advise sticking with with a lighter color cardigan instead of the darker one softy recommended. Any kind of outerwear or jacket you pick up will probably be darker than this mid-grey cardigan you have, which is good because you want your layers to look distinct. I also think you should wear trousers, perhaps navy. You can pick either cotton or wool; the first is more casual and the second is more formal. As for shoes, this is where you should really either decide if you're going to do workwear or MC. I kind of wonder if softy would have even picked up on the workwear look if you were wearing loafers. For what you're wearing here, I would advise brown chukkas given that you're wearing jeans. Also, while cutaway collars typically work for a face shaped like yours (elongated), I think they make your neck look long. Maybe try something with a slightly taller collar. This might mean you'll have to go with a wide or medium spread collar instead of a cutaway.

StanleyVanBuren, I also think that this kind of collar and tie for this fit don't work - they're too severe. I think the general idea is good and possible to pull off, but maybe with a knit, slimmer tie and a less imposing collar, like, say, a button down. I do dig the new specs, though.

svb, the glasses are dope. ok, so ive took some photoskillz advice and turned my camera upright, and set it on soft snap. also left pants untucked.

Glasses are very nice. Would prefer this with a softer collar and no tie--pants and sweater seem at odds with the starched white shirt/proper tie. Could approach tonio level bizness casuality.

svb that looks good. I assume you got that vneck sweater for $10 at h&m or something given your past purchases, but it looks good in that fit edit: agree with zissou about ocbd.
