Nothing special today, just my average teaching get-up. Although it involves a nod to the whole jackets and ties thing, it really doesn't go in MC at all - no pretense at tailoring involved! - and I guess it's pretty much in line with the current denim revivalism thing. Again, picture quality is dire and makes everthing look a lot bluer than it is - but until I find my digital camera this is what I've got...

helmut lang sweater
alternative apparel drapey tank thing (whatever you want to call it)
splendid leggings
my new rick boots
philip lim 3.1 bag

just got these boots, am officially obsessed with them. what do you think, am i wearing them right?

I think the overall look is quite nice actually, but in my opinion, the boots could be worn better with thicker pants (dark/black jeans with some stacking or leather pants or some more substantial/loose fabric pants). Cropped pants could work too.

The leggings leave way too much space in the mouth of the boots for my taste.

Also, maybe I am just saying this cos I know the boots are Rick, but I somehow feel the bag could do with being black as well. Great shape though!

Alright, I shall attempt to critique your threads.

THe shirt is JCrew. I would conclude that is blasphemy around here, enough to get you banned. Do not repeat it. Sleeves are too long, hence the bunching over your forearms. Good neck fit though.

Now, you cannot have a cake and eat it too--you cannot wear a tweed tie and a tweed vest/waistcoat/westcut. I would suggest a cloth skinny tie. Also, tie is too chunky and fails to compliment the vest.

And now, the vest. The biggest disaster of them all. Waistcoats must be fitted, yours is too loose. Tighten with the cloth strap and buckle at the back. Also, I would refrain from leaving the bottom-most button of your vest unbuttoned, unless its is clearly part of a 3-piece suit....with or without..nay, avec ou sans jacket. At the very least, to leave unbuttoned, pants and vest must be from a matching suit.
Your vest is too loose around your gut. Also too short. An altogether poor fit makes it unseemly.

I have no qualms with the jeans. The shoes are blah. I have not heard of that brand.

The seriously cacophonous pell-mell of mismatched garments gives you a seriously hipster vibe, which I think goes down well for you. I assume you intending the clashing in your threads to reflect on the clashing going on in your mind. If you weren't aiming for the hipster look, nothing works.

I wish I had a few baller knits, but I'm not careful enough with my clothes to keep them from getting fucked up on campus... and I can't afford to keep replenishing them as a income-less college student.

I like this, looks like something I'd wear. The Alden's are especially nice. Where do you go to school?
post #50906 of 117677

Thank-you, I agree a lot, if not most, of that. As I said, this wasn't a look I made any particular effort with, I was just interested in what people thought of my 'baseline' if you like. I was trying something with the tweeds, it didn't work. Yes, cloth tie would be much better. Shoes are blah - yes, nothing special, beaten up old things that are good for riding the folding bike to work. Shirt sleeve length is a general issue for me - if it was an expensive shirt, I'd have had them tailored but as it was just bought on sale JCrew, I really didn't think it was worth it (I know that's not going to make me a lot of friends around here!). The waistcoat is not a dress style, it's a modern take on early C20th working man's style so, not quite so fitted was the norm - take a look at http://www.old-town.co.uk/ for the kind of thing. I appreciate that it's not what people expect today, but that's why I like it - and in terms of 'period' it goes with the style of jeans more than a modern fitted waistcoat would. But overall, yes, the mix-and-match is intentional, but it's got nothing to do with 'hipster' although hipsters may indeed dress like this - I wouldn't know, we don't see many around these parts. smile.gif

You are young.

You wear a vest.

You bike to work.

You have a beard.

You, sir, are a hipster.

I don't think so I've never measured them though. I think they're pretty baggy personally. Much looser then me APC PS. They're what I was wearing in my last WAYWT photo and I thought they looked pretty loose.

Yes, but only old grizzled farts wore waistcoats like that in the period you are referring to. Think Tinker from the Lovejoy series, if you've seen it...with an oversized tweed beret...

Otherwise, the waistcoat was fitted, and the sleeves rolled up...ready to shovel coke into the boiler or to dissect a corpse....
