I don't get it either, and they're old sole lanvins so the sole is the same as CP's. The uppers are charcoal, not quite black, with a burgundy trim that has some depth to it:

Don't worry, it was just for the day.

Quite surprised how much discussion that one fit got.

There actually was a standing shot; it was eaten during the editing process. Another time

the problem with me looking square is that...I am square. I don't have a huge drop because my upper body isn't that muscular. but I'm a cyclist so I'm not really interested in getting a jacked upper body. I don't think scott has much drop either (could be wrong) and no one generally hates on him for being squareish.



I meant figurative square... plaid does that if u rnt rugged as fuvk or dashingly handsome[SPOILER][/SPOILER]

I think it goes without saying that a certain subset of board members are looking at another board member for blatant aesthetic direction. Just be careful as while certain fits may look good on Scott, they may not look good on you. There are just so many variables to consider and taking that into consideration the bolded portion above comes across as a bit silly.

But, Mike, with all due respect, I know you are struggling dimensionally and I applaud the steps you've taken this far to up your game (0). I think we've all seen improvements over the past few months. And being humble and receptive towards comments is such an important thing, and I know you do that.

I will state the obvious. All of the Common Projects hype & hoopla which runs abound is justified. However, I am HUGE fan of basic white lace up vans in white. Especially for the summer. And I love to beat the crap out of them. Though, your sneakers are bordering on a bit haggard and probably due for replacement. They also look a bit wide and a tad clunky (you may have a wide foot, not sure..). I've found Keds (check your pre-conceptions at the door!) to be a great slim-lined option for cheap basic casual footwear. If you can seek out a pair of Ked "Call of Duties" from last summer, imo, those would be ideal. They were my #1 beaters from last summer and have some nice pics of them to prove it. And cheap, if you're working with budget barriers.

Without a pretty wide wardrobe, I could see that windbreaker being difficult to pair with respect to what to wear under. I'm struggling myself to think (a grey v-neck or crew?). However, the plaid just doesn't work with the look. White lends itself to the warmer seasons and it is in direct competition with that darker colored plaid. Which typically, as I'm sure you know, is more on the Winter side of the pattern spectrum. If you like your checks, try some madras for the spring. (side note: i believe that may be a Gant you're wearing, and if so, I don't know why they released a Spring/Summer set of clothing in mostly fall/winter plaid patterns).

Preparing to be stoned to death, but also, I think the jeans are a little wide. My apologies if they're new, but I can't bite my tongue on it. Not just a "tad" wide, but they look oversized. Denim sizing is an art, and differs from person to person, but this is just my opinion. I would look for a slimmer leg that you can get with a factory/off the rack 30" inseam. Nudies (gasp!) come to mind for a denim with plenty of sizing and styles and at relatively reasonable price points.

Keep posting, keep up the good work -- and we'll be here to continue to pick your looks apart!

If slack says your jeans are too loose, that probably means they're perfect (no hate slack). I like the jeans Mike, slim but comfortable with a good taper down to the shoes

Yeah dude your flannel is less "mountain man" or "williamsburg" and more "what's up internets." Also, white shoes, especially with the combination of dark jeans, small hem, and wide feet, draw a lot of attention to themselves. I don't want this to devolve into a "short dude" discussion but it's really not the best look. Polos get a lot of hate on this forum but i think one would look good on you. Also, 2 hours a week doing a few upper body exercises would pay off greatly given your frame. Short dudes bulk up really easily.

I have a slight drop, not on Fuji status but good enough to make me happy.

It's not the shape of the shoe, it's the tacky burgundy trim and toe cap. I actually think the shape and materials look good based on the stock picture AR posted, but the burgundy makes the shoes look like you'll end up back in Kansas if you click them together three times.

Yea AR listen to these dudes. SELL ME THOSE LAWNZ
post #37001 of 117668
i meant square as figurative. not literal think more square as in svb (no hate, just... that type of look) its hard to wear plaid well (yes, plaid is overused, overdone, generally not done well) unless you're rugged as fuck or dashingly handsome. and most of us are neither. its good to take notes of others peoples fits, but i think epaulet and flannel + jacket have been regurgitated to death. sure it looks okay/good but theres not much left so commentate about it on waywt.

what's up internets...

guess who's been reading MC?

pretext: I wear 90% the same brand

that out of the way..

It wasn't until SF that I realized, while my fits looked "nice", they were tragically unremarkable. Inoffensive. That's about it. Cow's said "not much left to commentate about it on waywt", which led me to this comment. Because that is how I did (and still kind of do) perceive myself.

Not to say I've heavily branched out from my original appearance and debut, I do feel the critiques and comments received have caused me to explore a few different avenues of fit that I hadn't considered or for some reason had an aversion to in the past.

that is all. carry on
