Don't care to much about "social convention." I care more about what looks cool. This was one of his better fits. It could have been even better with maybe a darker/non V tee, or softer shoulders IMHO.

Yeah, looking back at his fit I realized the shoulders were structured in a much different way than the pics I posted. I guess I was more defending the general aesthetic, which is one to which I tend to gravitate in this whole clothing game

I am allowed to post my opinions and participate in discussions, no? I was under the impression I wasn't insulting anyone's intelligence, rather posting my opinions. Also, being open-minded and liking everything mindlessly are two different things in my mind. I will never like very structured jackets in casual and relaxed fits, because they don't look relaxed.
FWIW, here's my reply to hendrix's fit in the MC Casual thread (sorry for the broken english, didn't proof-read):

FWIW, I think your first post regarding (your opinion of) structured jackets and appropriate shirting was fine; however, the follow-up post to B!CD's response ("there are always rules in... 'art'") kind of came off as a shut-down, "this is the end of this conversation" sort of retort. You may not have necessarily intended that, but saying (however casually it might have first appeared) that "there's nothing to discuss," and then (perhaps inadvertently) implying B!CD's ignorance w/r/t How to Dress Well effectively performs that very shutting-down-of-the-conversation. In other words: your points were fine; B!CD's points were fine—the follow-up came off as a bit, well, crude.

And, if I can add something that I think is just really helpful for anyone when talking about any aesthetic object(s), but specifically related to SF: This is a discussion thread about style—people are going to inevitably disagree since they draw upon different backgrounds, histories, politics, etc. The discussion may very well end because two people arrive at a point where they realize that their appreciation for particular aesthetic objects has long since split; but that does not mean that the articulation of those very ways of appreciation cannot be considerate, well-crafted, and polite. All of this goes out the window if you're a(n un-)practicing (not-)subscriber to anti-social, anti-relational, negative politics.

i kinda like doing it more than unstructured jackets - which i find a bit obvious, as long as there's a nice texture. as I said, it feels like i'm wearing a leather jacket.

also - the second pic seems pretty similar to what i was going for. looser tee would probably make it look better.

That is very true, but that guy has been on my case forever. As well as a couple more posters here. Even if I weaved my post with utmost care and flattery, they would find something to shit on anyway.
I have a right to voice my opinion, and I engage in conversation with a few vocal members here simply out of boredom. I still look at fits, like some, dislike others, and comment when I feel like I have something to add to the thread, as was the case with hendrix's fit.
I appreciate your good will, but some people have continuously and needlessly tried to insult me here, so I have no respect for them and, therefore, have no desire to be more polite than required by good taste.
