This looks good. The trench in the previous picture looks like it belongs to someone much larger and broader; oversized stuff can look good but this just looks kind of ungainly.
Gaaah! Disagree. I hope I'm not too far out of bounds here, but at some point, you've got to quit asking yourself what makes these nice jeans look good, and what makes *me* look good. Those jeans aren't doing his teeny legs any favors. It's like someone walked into the store and said, Hey, 'scuse me -- what's the exact pair of jeans to make my legs look as tiny, crisp, and snap-able as a day-old wishbone? I dunno. Screw internet fashion. I'd go with different cut. Like the hair, though.
idk i subscribe to the super skinny look and even wear it myself most days, but i can see how something looks kinda off about the way those pants fit. i think its the super severe taper with the rest of the outfit not being all that slim
Noobizor has demonstrated in his sub-100 posts that he has very strong opinions on a variety of fit and styling matters but has not yet revealed what exactly the basis is on which said opinions rest or if there's some sort of consistent perspective underlying them. I for one eagerly await such revelations.
Yeah, it's the proportions of the outfit and the cut of the jeans. I think the guy looks great. EDIT: Ar_Six, I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have. I'm not sure what 'basis' you're trying to uncover (like maybe my mother was killed by a super-villain in skinny jeans?). There is this weird attitude held by some here that a post count in the thousands means you shouldn't question their (often idiotic) opinions on...anything.
Ha. No. For the record I like the skinny jeans look -- on some people, with some outfits. Hardly controversial. I'm not sure what anyone with less than 100 posts is supposed to 'exhibit'. Subservience? A lack of opinions? Hm. Anywho, yeah. More interested in discussion than this kind of weird, trolly meta-discussion. Or the Hey, look at me, I got laid! posts or rape jokes^^ from people who aspire to be Eurotrash. But, uh, welcome to the interwebs, I guess. Now what are you wearing?
Melonade's jeans do emphasize how skinny his legs are. However, he isn't trying to look as normal as possible; he's going for a skinny look. And then he can tuck his jeans into his common projects, which looks extremely dope in this instance. Viewed with the rest of the body, the legs definitely fit in. One of my super rudimentary definitions of well-dressed (and I have about a dozen, and they're all deeply flawed) is "does the dude look like the product of good character design?" Melonade absolutely does.
I only wonder whether you have some informed and legitimate perspective that leads you to dislike certain silhouettes (for example). It is unclear whether your responses are just knee-jerk reactions, which I frankly suspect. I disagree with Kunk on a ton of things he says but recognize that he has a very specific and informed perspective leading to his comments so I can accept them pursuant to the understanding that his perspective is not mine.
In any case this is a waywt thread so here is a boring fit.

I'm not credentialed from a school of fashion, no. (And might shudder to think what makes an opinion on style legitimate). But I think I disagree with you on principle: one should absolutely take into account their visceral, gut reaction, as they should reading any work of art.
