I for one have taken years to develop my style and I wont let a bunch of misinformed #menswear dudes sway me from my look. When they move on to the next hype shit.. I'll still tilt my tie bar and knot my tie askew nahmean? icon_gu_b_slayer%5B1%5D.gif

Don't worry, the difference is that you look good.

+1, some interesting stuff on your blog too. love the abandoned mansion with the huge gates. made me think of that lovecraft-ian borges story where everything's built out of scale

Tirailleur's outfits would look ridiculous on anyone else but he kinda owns the look.

Tirailleur - You pull it off. Prefer the leopard print moc look from earlier.
Hendrix -This would have been your least offensive, if a diff shirt was deployed (white ocbd?)
Tagut - Stop it.

I don't know why everyone is bashing you for this. The top half looks pretty clean to me. The color of the shirt and jacket go together well and the jacket has a nice fit and minimalist cut. I think the pants are a poor choice, but that's about it.

Tagut, imo you should really wander into a Target or some shit and attempt to purchase clothing without any sort of Styleforum "fit" mentality and just try stuff on. Your clothing, all your clothing, reflects this massive bias towards something you "imagine" as fitting right and your imagination is wrong. I remember your pics through the years and they have these oddities about them - shirts with tight short arms, short length, jeans too tight in the thighs and too cut too close to your giblets. Go someplace like Target where the products are cheap, multiple brands / cuts / sizings. And seriously, try sizing up before you buy anything.

I know you're gonna say you have weird proportions, so my question is - why wear clothing which emphasizes it to the greatest degree?

Yeah, that scarf is the perfect length. Just flip it once around your neck and go. It's actually the one scarf I own that I have to think the least about when I put it on.

the top half is the awful half tho.

the jacket is fine but not with those pants and who the fuck wears logo-ish graphic tees?
 

top half needs to be badass enough to match bottom half imo.

an olive/army green tee with a black leather jacket and bam you have a complete look

 

also the pants fit really well. trust a homo when i say they make your legs look really good. they make you look like you do tons of squats or ride a bike daily or s/t, but in a good way.

Now see, this is the kind of discussion I'd like. It's so much more productive than "D00D U SUCK!!!1"

Yes, my clothes do reflect a set of conscious biases, and yes, I can articulate reasons for these biases. For one thing, I have very short arms, and I find long-sleeve anything draws attention to this fact. A solid-color long-sleeve top will make my entire top part look extremely blocky, since the sleeves of my shirt are so close to being flush with the hemline. I get many of my t-shirts shortened simply because they're apparently made for much taller people (American Apparel exacerbated this trend,) but also to mitigate the short-arms effect. I'll admit that I've shortened some shirts too much.

The 5EPs are too tight, I admit— an unfortunate result of a warm wash I gave them after accidentally sitting in a drunk fucktard's piss. I'm hoping a cold wash and a day of wearing them damp sometime this summer will help loosen them up. Those old washed Nudies I can't get within two inches of buttoning these days. Just as well, they've been through the washing machine so many times they started looking like stonewashed dad jeans under blacklight. I bought some cheap mid-blue straight leg Buffalo jeans to wear this summer until I can get a permanent solution in place (I have a huge store of 'summer color' t-shirts that I've been unable to wear with the noticeably greencast 5EPs and Nudies.)

Also, I moved into a second-story apartment about six months ago, and I seriously think just the act of walking up and down the flight of stairs is making my butt and thighs even bigger than they were before. This makes the shrinking jeans phenomenon even more problematic.

In clothing, form follows function- social function- and my only social functions these days are going out to bars and playing pool. So naturally t-shirts are the most functional and comfortable for this purpose. In the winter, I'll throw a hoodie over it and take it off once I get inside. V-necks help shorten my comparatively long torso.

Keep in mind I'm 5'8.5" and 190-something pounds. Drapey, experimental silhouettes would end up looking sloppy on me. I keep everything fitted by design, although I'll cop to some errors in judgement (overhemming shirts, shrinking jeans, etc.)

Not a fan of how the stacks lay now (haven't worn these jeans in half a year or so) so I'm probably gonna hem them soon. Soon as in whenever I get off my ass and get to the tailor.

Honestly, there's no need for you to deviate from the jeans/sneaks/tee uniform. Just three tweaks:

  1. Diff hairstyle- I won't ask you to change it completely, since I know the length is just part of who you are, man. But get it structured/layered so the length looks better
  2. Wear jeans that look comfortable
  3. And the biggest one-- abandon the robot pose! Like the hair, it's been a mainstay of all your photos for the last few years, but standing in a more natural, comfortable position will do wonders for you

Cheers

You really need to beat up those CP's, or at least have a white shirt on or something. Or maybe cuff your jeans to make the contrast less sharp?

Why do people say this?  If you want dirty shoes buy something that isn't CPs.  I think having a muted outfit and then really white crisp shoes looks good.  Then again, maybe I'm wrong? since I just got the same criticism yesterday.
