gross, but because you're new: the cardigan, or shirt, or both are too big around the waist. I can see it bunching up and creating an ugly mess around your stomach. The horizontal pattern also makes it look like it's pulling, even when it's not, so it's a bad visual effect. Jeans are a matter of taste I guess, I hate the "slim but still hanging straight down with a sharp knee crease" look.
Huh? I thought it looked just fine. Maybe the shirt under was a bit big in the waist causing some fake lovehandle thing.

Actually... without your head I always thought you looked a bit like a douche but once I saw pics with your face you look pretty normal. Well built, but not scary. I was imagining some kind of chin strap, piercings, spiky hair, etc. You look, well, "nice".

yeah, WTF is that Cuss stuff? some inside joke from real life meetups? Screw real life, that's what I say.
Bonus outtakes, alternate angles and R-rated scenes of my two recent portrait shoots are now available on Mode Parade: I don't think you're ready for this jelly Also, I like the casual stylings from Kelvinsense and Zissou. Quality photographs, both
It's an anatomic tight raglan block vs a classic set-in sleeve, cropped rider's jacket with very little darting on my Moto or anything similar. Two very different styles that appeal to different people, I actually didn't like the Julius. It does give almost anyone (and I have 17.5" wide shoulders and a 35.5-36" chest and a natural 28" waist, ie a 46 jacket/44 pants) a flared hip look unintentionally; the natural way of wearing something that tight at the top would be to pair it with a baggy pair of pants, and that is how Julius themselves generally present it; compressed top, flowy bloused pants, compressed boots.
It was my roommate's who offered it to me, I wore it for awhile, and then decided I didn't want it, I prefer my margiela. I sold the matching Julius Engineer boots as well, didn't really like those either. Goth ninja on the Japanese over-detailed level requires more commitment to an aesthetic than Rick/other European goth ninja, which can be worn in some other contexts.
I'm getting some new leather jackets for my personal collection but none will be goth ninjer.
I agree that the Margiela look much better. I love the quality of Julius, but I've got incredibly narrow shoulders, especially relative to the size of my hips, and wearing a Julius leather at the correct size exacerbates the problem twice as much as you. More aggressively cut Rick leathers like the Intarsia have the same problem - body like a coke bottle if you have any hips whatsoever. The raglan shoulders on Julius work with such a small amount of matching bottom aesthetics that I'd really wish dude would make a jacket with less darting and more traditional shoulders, but then again, that really wouldn't be Julius, would it?
Every time I try on a Julius leather, I realize that it absolutely never works with the rest of the clothes I'm wearing, but that still isn't stopping me from trying to skim one for sub-$750 on Y!Auctions.. The quality/price ration on them really is second-to-none
