Don't look that good? They both look notably awful.
post #66542 of 117670
Yup. Pretty effing terrible. Forced...

i have never understood wearing a tie with an untucked shirt, never seen it look good. also is the one on the left a 12 year old girl?

It's "Juno"; I think she's about 25.

And if anything, it's creepy that she and Anton Chigurh are wearing the exact same outfit to the same event.
post #66545 of 117670
I don't think anyone, even moo, was actually endorsing the look.
post #66546 of 117670
i think the only way its gonna work is in a messy outfit, where the tie is sorta like dangling off in a manner a necklace does. Can be a pretty loose silhouette overall. I don't like it in that fit because everything is in order, your pants are cuffed, clean silhouette. Jacket over it made it worse. Loose/unstructured blazer or shirts would help propel the "casual tie" shit for me.

She was also in Inception.

I feel like there's potential to make it work with a cardigan (worn buttoned), but I can't think of whether or when I've seen it.

To give context to the outfit: I was trying out something new with going all blue, it didn't really work out though, as you said, with the jeans and jacket being too close in color/texture. It's not something I wear often.
And thanks for clearing up who SvB is. I looked through his blog and he dresses well, but I'll have to find my own style.
I'll keep on posting, because of feedback like yours wink.gif

hey no problem... I get where you were coming from...trying the different-blues-together angle. It's a great idea and perfectly acceptable but like I said there needs to be at least some contrast or variation to differentiate the jeans from the SC etc. (otherwise the weird "suit / but not a suit" look). The shade of the shirt is great, just not the fit as the more casual, wrinkliness is somewhat at odds with the SC IMO. anyway...good attempt in theory and thanks for being receptive to critique and brave enough to post! nod[1].gif

btw... about the brands.... definitely post them if you wish as people will inevitably ask you later if there is a piece they like. I was presumptuous in perhaps thinking "oh hey here's the new guy showing off all his Hermes, Etro and more esoteric French stuff like Billtornade..." It's not like everyone can wear/afford nice stuff like that all the time so as one of your first posts I wrongly assumed you were "brand dandying" for some internet adulation... that is not the case, my apologies, but as you will find it happens around here.

SvB is relevant because of your proportions/body type... I as well am long and lean, but not quite as much as SvB... it's just good reference to try techniques that will emphasize the "strengths" and downplay "weaknesses". For example, your fit did also kind of emphasize your shoes which made them look even bigger proportionally... I've seen this mentioned with SvB. So the question is how can one wear a slim, tapered look and not have the shoes look like gigantic clown shoes (yours were not in clown territory but looked a bit large and disproportionate overall). Anyway, hope this helps....glad to meet you and still hoping there's more Etro to come! happy.gif

Ah I see the shoe-thing as well now. I have pretty big feet and the shoes are slightly on the big side of my usual size..

 

Nice to meet you too. And I got only a couple stuff from Etro.. A few shirts, a sweater, the jacket and another white/black striped jacket.. Nothing funky, unfortunately. But I'm going to a big Etro outlet next week, I'll be sure to pick up some stuff :p
