The reason Jason's jeans don't look great is because he appears to have a slight case of knock knees (no hate, just pointing out a physiological deformity), which cause his legs to make an X shape. This isn't the most attractive option for any kind of pant wear. But he can't change that, so that's that. Dude could be doing worse, I suppose... at least the brands are SF approved. One day I'll go out and just buy a Rolex for the hell of it... one day.
jean fit is off, I would stay away from tapered and just go slim straight if I were you, jacket is too puffy as you yourself stated -- and you mightneed something to completement those shoes
Thanks. I appreciate it.

IMHO the problem doesn't lie with your stuff, it's with your fits. They're just not that good right now. I believe they will get much better if you heed some of the non-hateful advice a few members have given. You clearly have plenty of nice clothes to work with and switching things up (minus puffy jackets), plus getting some more flattering pant fits, will work wonders. Of course, the taller and slimmer one is, the easier the applause comes, when paired with proper gear... but, that goes for everyone. Good luck.
PS - If you really don't care about $$, please send me that DH jacket and maybe one of your lovely perfumes forthwith. K, bai.
Give me your address, haha.

Letting it run like that just makes the watch look like a knockoff.

Do you guys actually think that Cali's fits look good? I guess bad expensive fits > bad cheap fits.

This jacket is extremely unflattering on you, as everyone else has already mentioned. Oh, and please lose the Power Balance.
Dude, I think you could really benefit by stealing a page from Oulipo, the wacky French experimental lit group. I'm talking about constraints. Right now, you have absolutely none -- and it really shows. But by limiting yourself a bit, maybe in terms of cost, you will be forced to think outside your comfort zone, possibly in a more creative and productive way. Think of the White Stripes: excellent musicians, they have every tool at their disposal. Yet creatively, they often get stalled out until they begin placing obstacles in their path. (No more G chords; No more effects; only play in this minor key, etc.) Similarly, you could probably benefit by say, setting a four or five hundred dollar limit on each outfit; or by purchasing each new getup with a particular context in mind: classroom, VIP lounge, sailing, skydiving, whatever. (Sounds crazy, but the research pans out. Right now, it just looks like a bit of a hodgepodge, IMHO.) Or you could go with the polar opposite: outright imitation. This has really worked for me, lately. Just pull up this thread on your phone whenever you're out shopping, save the pics you like, and buy those outfits. Boom. Better than buying shit off the mannequins. (Failing all that, just hire the fuck out of those Queer Eye guys. You've got the $$$, and they got cancelled...)
