No. Arms too short, too tight anyway.
Huh, it's a brand new leather and didn't stretch out at all. My new purchase fit tighter than that then a day later fit just right. Do agree he shouldn't get that one though and arms are too short.

should work, but something is off:

boots > sneakers in this fit

perhaps pants > jeans or change the shirt to a tee.

i think swooc does it well with pants+shirt+toj leather

First of all, it's sort of...well... FOB. Yeah, FOB. And FOB in a really fobby way. The wifebeater exposing a hairy chest....the discolored, thin shirt, sleeves rolled up and unbuttoned...ill fitting pants...c'mon dude, this is a cab driver picking up a milk on the way home! It's straight from a Bollywood movie about the immigrant experience in New Jersey...it just doesn't fly as style....too much bad rap by association.

Maybe I'm being a little too harsh on you coz my sarong wearing experience this evening was an absolute disaster...but low-brow, low-class, uncool, Simpsons-mockable ethnic wear has its time and place and styleforum is not one of them....

Big thanks to all of those who commented and thumbed it up, much appreciated.

It was fun to read the discussion that followed. I'm not going to discuss the merits or demerits of my own outfit, obviously I liked it enough to wear it, it's been a daily uniform for the last few weeks - I don't buy a lot of stuff so I wear what I have often, instead. I got this jacket in mint condition (A/W 04) a few months back and I couldn't be happier with it.

Excuse the dark pictures, bad lighting and a worse camera does that. It doesn't come out that well in pics anyway, the real treat is in movement. The wool gabardine used for the jacket (the yohji staple gab 100) is just magnificent. Hard wearing, amazingly soft hand and moves so well. When standing still with the jacket buttoned it looks a bit more structured than it is in person, it comes alive worn open outside when you get some air in between jacket and body. The zipper is quite heavy and throws the balance off a bit when moving, I personally love that. In balance to the jacket, the pants are a 50-50 wool/cotton thick flannel-y kind of fabric that is more structured and heavy. The knit (mohair/wool/nylon) is a bit distressed and works as contrast to the other parts.

Regarding brand consumption, we've had this discussion before and I'm not going to convince any of you so I won't dwelve too deep into it. I couldn't care less what people think about that aspect, I wear it just because it feels so right and I don't need to prove anything else. I'm not against other brands in any way and I do look at other stuff (and do wear other brands.... sometimes -- kidding aside, this fit had both uniqlo and RW!!) but I don't feel the need to do it just because.

Regarding the old chinese men, the two best dressed guys I saw yesterday were both 60+, so maybe there's something there. And I love white sneakers as well (and have worn old muji canvas sneaks in many fits before).

I dont' have many detail pics of the jacket, but I took a close-up that I decided not to post because it's not that great and I didn't want to post too many pics of the same fit, but I forgot about the excellent spoiler function, so here it is:

if i saw an aging priest that dressed like asobu... i would probably drop to my knees and praise his aesthetically endowed prowess.

in all seriousness though. this fit and asobu's usual postings are all "mind-blowing" to me. i probably couldnt explain why exactly i like his looks so much, but i am pretty bummed that some of you folks dont appreciate them as much as i do.

i also really like shah's latest fit, its pretty badass in a cuban drug dealer type of way.

Be careful about dropping to your knees around priests.

what I am saying is that you guys resort to hyperboles and intensifiers about hooooooOoOoowww fuckiiing mind BLOWING the fit is, when in reality its just an cool oufit that works for that person. But you guys let you're comments take on this intensity because of the hype fact0r.
its like, guys -- relax --
And that's why when bubba says, "hey, I don't get why this is mindblowing" he is actually making making an astute observation. The fit is not MINDBLOWING, it's just another great fit from asobu.
I guess what I am saying is that the term 'mindblowing' should be reserved for things like alien invasions and invisibility cloaks. You know, shit that blows your fucking mind.

I think that, in a way, you and I are on the exact same fucking page
