Juxtaposition of oversized over skinny...theres no gradual taper. Looks feminine. Loose serge pants would look cool. Proportions just dont work from large skinny to chunky shoes... low shoes would make the juxtaposition less jarring as well

I kinda like it. Would rather the sweater be the only slouchy thing about the ensemble, though. Like, contrast it with bottoms/shoes that are spiffy clean. You could start, for example, by lacing the shoes "properly" and hiding the tongue back under the jeans' hem. In its current state it's borderline sloppy.

oversized top, slim jeans, clunky boots is my go-to clothing formula. So I guess I'm biased, but obviously I like it. Though I would like clunkier footwear, possibly black instead of white.

black jeans would be better there KJ. I don't think it's necessarily the tightness but the raw denimness that clashes. Black tapered jeans would work. I do think you could go up a size though.

that style only really works if you're skinny. for most people, it just ends up pronouncing the top-heaviness of their build

took this picture, realised that I was wearing the same exact fit about a year ago. It shows the colours a bit more accurately

Someone probably told you a year ago not to put your arms in the jacket pockets for the photo, too.

KJ that is horrible

Nice shoes though

The problem with the Geller sweatshirt is that it's already massively over-sized to start with, so going down at least one size is necessary unless you're Nil-like in stature. I take a 52 in most Geller stuff and even a 48 in that sweatshirt is still a bit over-sized on me.

Sweatshirt looks like some goodwill shit, nothing about it is flattering (the material even looks thin and prone to wrinkles)

sell quick

I'm warming up to it. Really like the idea of a flowy amorphous top

Can't imagine wearing it without feeling uncomfortably self conscious though

Yeah aside from what hendrix said re: jeans, honestly I gotta stand by this one.  I don't really feel self-conscious in the sweatshirt because I've been wearing it places where everyone else is also wearing big sweatshirts - campfires, hangouts, etc.  It was like $60 and is comfy as fuck and it's a giant sweatshirt, what's not to love.

 

Also @ reedo it was wrinkly because i left it in a hot car for two days, it's really nice cotton actually

It is prone to wrinkles, though, I've noticed. I keep mine folded and I've had to throw it in the dryer for a few minutes every time I've wanted to wear it out.

That aside, it's pretty much the ideal top for lounging or running some errands on a brisk afternoon. It doesn't wow the visual senses, but it's great for what it is.
