post #64051 of 117668

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.

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.

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.

I don't want to add to the dwelling on this that's going on...but I gotta say, this is one of the nicest fits I've seen in SF...I would wear this on the street.  I can even see a good looking Italian guy wearing this, all dressed up and no where to go.

And this is classic WAYWT, in the sense that all the elements of styleforum that remove most WAYWT fits from reality are here--the God-awful photography, the screwed up camera angle, cut-off or blurred faces (face made to look like it's been through Chemical Ali torture in the case of Shah), the dreadful lighting, the use of awful quality cameras...at least in this case, there are no filthy mirrors and no comic distortion or colour treatment...


But if this is 6' guy and he's walking down the street wearing this....that's a cool fit in my book...

 

Perhaps Stanley van Buren would photograph this gentleman?  or Bows1's friend?
