I don't think these people would talk to me like that in person so I don't understand why I would be disrespected right off the bat without any; "and heres what you could change to make this work".

It's very constructive... do a 180.

People here shit on others pretty frequently. Just a heads up.

That's not what this forum is about, sorry.

People come to this forum (and this thread specifically) to look at crowd-sourced content in the form of a) interesting fit pictures and b) commentary by people who constructively engage with those fit pictures. Critiques are offered, but only if the original content itself is worth engaging.

Instead of acting like a special snowflake and demanding critique, instead think of yourself as a producer of quality fits and/or commentary for the entertainment of the fickle tastes of internet fashion nerds. If what you're making is rejected, don't take it personally, but rather, view it as a way to understand that people here don't give a shit about your canadian tuxedo and awkward boot tuck.

In essence, the people on this forum are not your personal stylists, and you are disrespecting them by treating them as such. Right now both your fit and the tantrum you're throwing at the response are boring content that nobody wants to read, and thus, you will be ridiculed and shat on even further.

Have a good day smile.gif

GN, you have a way with words the way Helen Keller had a way with words.

Look, I don't want to be an ass, but have you lurked around here much? If so, then I would think you'd be familiar with how it works in this thread. Two people said you had too much blue on, which unless you're on your way to my office building to change light bulbs, I'm inclined to agree. I know you wrote that you were trying the affect some sort of uniform look, but why is beyond me.

So I would start by taking what others have said and try reading between the lines a little bit. Maybe change the pants into khakis. Perhaps don't roll the pant and do the boot tuck.

edit: GN beat me to it.

 This forum doesn't follow the conventions of normal real-life society.  I agree that SW&D could be more polite, but I don't forsee that anything's going to change anytime soon.  Don't let it get to you - we're all just random douchebag strangers who have zero importance in your life, and if you can put it in that perspective you'll be alright.

 

If you can handle the criticism, though, it can be a good thing.  You'll get completely honest opinions.  Your real-life friends would probably always tell you that you look fine, but that's not going to help you improve your style.

 

Anyways, here's hoping you can stick it out long enough to get decked out in Rick. cheers.gif

I don't think I was demanding just asking where I could improve from people who know more about clothing and style than me. I don't have anyone in my circle of friends I can ask these questions to and get critique.

 

I assumed wrong and apologise if it came across that I was being demanding and that I am posting shit that nobody wants to read.

I think SF would benefit a lot if there was an automatic pop up window with a big "LURK MOAR" meme, like every 30 seconds or so.

 

Here´s a fit from the week. Can´t see sneakers, but they´re the usual kva.

Not enough contrast between shirt and pants
belt is bad
jeans don't fit well
boot tuck looks hideous
just looks bad in general...

ok, then

Don't wear denim/denim-looking shirts with denim pants (at least not if they're both blue, you might get away with black). Don't tuck your pants if it makes the pants look all wonky.

Also, the boots make your feet look really long. maybe try either not tucking the jeans or not tucking the jeans and shirt at the same time. denim uniform is not a good way to do a uniform look.

if you really want to tuck the pants get pants that look better tucked, and get different fabrics between the top and bottom

What am I looking for in the fit of my jeans? Will be great to know what to look for when I am out shopping next.

Not everybody agrees with me on this, but reddit's r/malefashionadvice is more what you're looking for. Read that for basic shit and questions and whatnot but lurk here for real education on how to steeze beyond that.

What the hell are you guys going on about? This guy has thrown no tantrums and looks no worse than a lot of semi-regular posters. No reason to think he wouldn't fit right in. Maybe we can get him to buy some sweet lanvins, huh? Wouldn't that be fun? Oh, oh, let's also tell him that nobody wears jeans anymore, they all wear, uh, horse cocks.

GTFO with this reddit shit. Although I do sort of miss the noob threads of yore - ask me this, recommend me a blah, etc. etc. Do those even exist?
