Going to take out the shoulder-pads(they're minimal, but still there)
I've also realized that to get good shorts, you don't buy shorts, you buy pants and cut 'em up laugh.gif

Xhale, I always get the impression that you don't actually like anything you're wearing.

considering the fact that he's been through 3 aesthetic phases since joining sf, how can he, in good faith claim that he truly likes any of it? I mean, we all buy clothes to cover up some dark hole in our personality, but dress for yourself man, not the approval of a bunch of internet nerds. use sf to give you guidance/feedback, not to hold your hand.

His aesthetic schizophrenia is fine. At the very least, he's finding out what he doesn't like. (Also: finding "one aesthetic" and sticking to it, for however long, just doesn't appeal to all people.)

Going through a bunch of different styles as quickly as he has might not be particularly "good"; but he'll end up fine. He just needs to get a haircut, stop thinking about clothes for a while, and then reflect on what's contentedness-worthy and what's not. This'll sort itself out and shit—and I, perhaps in a motion you'd agree with mikey, would suggest that "taking a break" offers a nice repository for self-reflection, recollection, and renewed energy for another foray into aesthetic exploration.

I'm all for experimenting and trying new things, but what 1234 is doing is not that. He's simply fishing for internet approval by buying popular stuff. He thought that goth ninja was "cool" so he bought a bunch of goth ninja stuff but when no one liked his fits he sold it all and bought stuff that was totally different. it's not like goth ninja never could have looked good on him. his body and face are fine and with a hair cut, better fitting pieces, and better styling could have looked fine in sam b and rick. it just feels like he's not even trying to make these different looks work.

who cares? if he wants to spend hundreds of dollars to boost his self-esteem, so be it.

I don't care I'm just trying to help him find contentedness faster and easier.

Commenting on another user's statement that his shirt is reminiscent of 2 and a Half Men by saying, simply, "nailed it" isn't what many would consider concrete "help." If you claim to absolutely not care about what he does, making the effort to reply to, or make tongue-in-cheek remarks about, his posts kind of negates that aim.

And I don't know how exactly you demonstrate that he's just "fishing for approval"; it seems like you must know the inside of his head better than any of us do. Just... quit trying to ascertain some motive to his posts on which you can pin some sort of shortcoming(s); accept the fact that, as he has mentioned before, he's looking for his niche. It doesn't require the smug put-down and the follow-up "but no, I'm trying to help!" maneuver. It's dishonest and absolutely the farthest thing from "[helping] him find his contentedness faster and easier."

I think the "concrete help," was already provided by telling him to tuck his shirt in.

You'll have to forgive me for being unimpressed with the recommendation that someone tuck in a shirt in order to alleviate the aesthetic confusion and approval-seeking that mars the fit(s) at issue.
