You seem to alternate between high-and-mighty douchiness and downright dejection....today you look like you're ready to face the firing squad...I mean, the Style police....what happened?!?
I may have been a bit too hard on you...so let me give you some advice, "brother": Don't take any advice from here! The suggestions so far have been uniformly retarded. You don't want to wear Temple of Doom or whatever and end up looking like a freak from another planet. Pant tapering...Unnecessary. You have the height and the slimness to rock the relaxed fits, which are cut precisely for physiques like yours. Shoe daintification? Pfftff!!!! What's next, suggestions for make-up? Italian woppery is right out the door these days...clunky-looking English shoes or American Aldens are in...
So hold you head up high...stand proud...and hold your ground. You are Stanley van Buren, no one can take that away from you. America may be in rough times right now...but America is still king. The US Treasury 10-year bond is still the liferaft for everyone fleeing the Southern European catastrophe...
In the thigh? I know it's the perennial excuse, but I think my thighs are pretty massive at 23" (just measured) and 15.5" calves this is unfortunately with really short legs (29-30" inseam). Generally I wear more straight legged fitting pants that are less tapered. These are my only pair of black non jean pants Need to acquire something else.
Why is this getting 14 likes? Seriously, it looks like he's put on all these things he's picked up from a yardsale....pants that have been put out to pasture after one voyage too many down the washing machine...shirt frayed at the top...is the hobo look in nowadays? Am I missing something!??!?
Thanks. Just got it actually. Really liked the collar and decided to take a chance on it. Glad it worked out. Will check out the nonnative shoes you mentioned. Still looking for nice trainers and nonnative has been coming more and more on my radar in general so interest definitely piqued.
Cool, I like to hear stories like that about taking a chance on something. I have no experience with the nonnative shoes at all, I only mentioned them because they were the first thing that popped into my head when I was thinking of trainers that might work with what you were wearing. I know those Raf shoes in real life and they're too crispy and fashion-y (ugh, sorry for using that word) I think to wear with what you were doing.
This could also just me getting into a BRAND SYNERGY moment though so feel free to ignore me.
you know, i think miran/otter may be right on this one. i used to be SVB-level skinny and fitted trousers made me look like a toothpick.
what appear to be loose trousers in the photos are probably already pretty slim IRL
outfit on the left in particular looks good to me.
