This question gets asked often, but usually in an appropriate thread like should I or shouldn't I buy.  Why you're asking in waywt i'll never know, but B&N look nice and I've heard no complaints about the quality

KingJulien, I would tuck the shirt and get the pants hemmed a little bit.

Reckon I could post this here, since I wore it today and all. Stacks haven't settled on the jeans yet 'cause they're all box-fresh and crispy.

Bought a pair from Roden Gray when they were on sale, well worth the price even at $197. Construction is equal to CP, though go with a size up from CP. I wear 43 in B&N and 42 in CP.

Hah, I had avoided undershirts for quite some time now but I sometimes like wearing a shirt mostly unbuttoned with a deep v-neck/tank under it or something.  It obviously didn't work here for a couple reasons, but this is sort of what I was imagining:

Shirt's too formal, though, and undershirt too undershirt-y.  As for the pants, it's a little tricky as they have a harness inside but I think I will hem them a couple inches.  Again, thanks for feedbacks.

you link a lot of runway shots as inspiration, but you're you don't have the body type to dress straight off the runway... just is what it is.

That fit has nothing in common with the runway shot except that we're both wearing a button-up shirt so I'm not sure how you think I'm dressing straight off the runway?

it's the concept you were describing that was also used on the runway, leading him to believe that it was a runway inspired-style that's reserved for runway show models.

basically, keep scrolling

because you're trying to mimic a look which is best suited for people who are 110 lbs and 6'1, a la a runway model (who was in the picture you posted). you have a lot of nice pieces, but you seem to have some trouble putting them together in a way that looks good on you. i think you could benefit from some more tapered pants.
post #64062 of 117677
eh. you don't have to be 6'1 and 110lbs to look good in slouchy jackets/sweaters and loose pants. A lot of the "issue" is camera angle/picture quality/chopping off half his head.

look at his past couple of pics... baller pieces but put together sloppily in an unflattering way. could be camera angle - mirrors don't help.
post #64064 of 117677
there is a sloppiness. not necessarily a bad thing. those pants may not be working, maybe he needs to wear higher or have hemmed. I think a lot of it is angles.

At the moment you are not the King Mr. Julien

Please try again

You would benefit by copying someone like Shah e.g. ditch the pants and pick up some wool trousers that drape better and are more balanced when hemmed and tapered. Are you like Coldsnap who wears slim bottoms at =< 7" leg opening. This does not suit your body type, IMO

I think with no break or .25" break and >= 7.5" taper would look nice with your most recent outfit.

You can go slimmer but then be careful of the inseam length so it does not bunch up.

Trousers does not equal denim/cotton pants

And for shirts, more often than not I would personally opt for a button down with a nicer collar for the nice appeal around the neck vs. a shirt that has its collars lifting up. The latter is definitely doable and I can only imagine Fuuma pulling it off well. But as mentioned, such serious enthusiasts understand that the right cut is only half the equation and more often than not, it is the material that serves the part of creating the best drape [add-in adjective] in a piece of clothing.
