Of course, Zissou and Snake and Uncontrol and a few others have distinct and defined styles but, for the most part, everybody dresses strikingly the same.

It's a shame, because I really like seeing different looks. Part of why I'm here is to expose myself to styles and looks and items that I wouldn't be aware of otherwise (it's how I discovered my Roys, which I love). But I don't get much out of seeing the same Gitman shirts and Quoddy shoes post after post. I understand that a lot of people post to get feedback and improve (me included) but a lot of people seem to post to show off and I just don't really understand *what* they are showing off.

While I wouldn't wear what Uncontrol wears, I love that he wears it and I look forward to seeing his fits because they are interesting. I would love to see other people express themselves more freely. The fit I posted, in fact, is one of my more subdued looks and I still fully expected to get some criticism (of the hat and hair, specifically). Anyway, you guys have probably talked about this before, I just wanted to share because sharing is caring.

Word, I'm going to go the gym now and work out til I puke. Have a great Saturday friends!
Well thought-out response.

As far as the shirt is concerned, there are a few different options. I specifically dislike H&M shirts because they tend to have really low-cut armholes, which means they end up being cut wider through the body, and the collar seems to get messed up after a couple of wears and washes. As far as cheap goes, I find that the Gap slim fit shirts actually aren't bad. I buy the medium tall shirts and have them tapered and hemmed (the latter so I can wear them untucked), and it's a decent fit. There are also some online made-to-measure options. You'll probably have some sizing misfires before you get it down pat, but you can end up with some reasonably priced well-fitting shirts. If you want to try it out, Modern Tailor (one of the affiliates, I think you'll see them as a "featured sponsor" with a link to their site if you go to the Men's Clothing sub-forum) has a cheap introductory offer.

As far as the SF "uniform" is concerned, I feel like there's kind of a diversity of styles that get love here, but there's probably a long and seemingly baffling list of no-nos as well. Dunno.

It can be kinda tough to find the balance between tuckable and untuckable in a button-down. You can have the tailor take more off the front and back than the sides when hemming, which may help keep it in that range. I just basically always untuck, since I can.

It was a fall day yesterday. It's summer again now, 20c or so, but this morning it almost broke freezing.

I have a feeling I'm going to live in this jacket. I layered it with a bunch of different things and I liked them all. (under barbour, over blue baseball jacket, under vest, etc. But part of my still wants to get an oversized camo parka instead, since I have so many waist-level jackets. And this one would be redundant with my green junya one.

Thoughts?

+1 I think the style of dressing most appreciated here is great: v sharp, but somewhat safe, almost a uniform, and not necessarily the kind of style u see a lot of or is appreciated IRL. the PS is de rigeur for WAYW jacket and tie fits but rarely found any where else ... and generally considered somewhat dandyish. Take a look at the Wall St Journal, for example, and count the number of pocket sq's. Not a common affectation amongst the biz elite even tho many are wearing tailored suits and some even dress reasonably well. uhoh.gif Men who clearly know a lot about cloth and clothes and fashion and are models of well-dressed trans-Atlantic style don't necessarily dress in an SF approved way - Simon Crompton, for example, won't often put PS and tie in the same fit. If he posted here anon he'd prob be pulled up on it. Likewise say Luca Rubinacci mixes styles in ways that IMO works most of the time, but strays from many of the conventions of color, pattern, cut and cloth here, even some of Spoo's fits that been trashed for being too 'interesting' are amongst his best looks, again IMO. def I like to see (mostly) perfect combinations from peeps like Holdfast and M Breinin but would also like to see more risk taking by peeps who know the basics

Works for me.

Love the tie.

Anybody got a bead on a decent knit tie like that? Doesn't need to be baller, just acceptable on the off chance the need for a tie arises.

Your post is somewhat contradictory. You start off by saying that a lot of the fits on SF are "dandyish" and not representative of what you see in real life and then you conclude by saying that you'd like to see people take more risks here. Doesn't make much sense.
