I'm ordering a midnight blue grenadine from Sam Hober as well.

Hey man, this may come off as a little harsh, but the answer is neither.

I hate rules but sometimes we need to observe them a little as noobs, so:

1. Don't wear a tie without a jacket.

2. Khaki pants in that shade, with that belt, are awful.

3. That's a white business shirt. They generally only look good in a full on suit outfit, or else a super minimalist fashion fit.

4. When you've got a billowy shirt tucked in like that, with your build, it's very unflattering, and not in an interesting way either.

5. That tie is skinny, but also old fashioned in design. It's not a very good combination.

1. I stand corrected, but I don't think it could look all that bad. I think it can be a rakish, non-chalant look. Apparently, it doesn't look right for me.

 

2.  I was under the impression that, more or less, the belt must closely match the shade of the shoes. Granted, it's not the same exact shade of brown as the suede chukkas.

 

3 & 4.  It's supposed to be a slim fit dress shirt, too. I guess I've got an unusual build; my waist has a quite a bit of suppression, and I've got wide hips. I've been working out too. All my old dress shirts look worse than this, though, very baggy.

 

5.  I like the tie, and while I understand it's narrow and old fashioned (1960s, it belonged to my grandfather), I think the narrow style is cool. This is something that would look better with a suit than just a shirt, too.

 

I knew I was going to be knocked for that post, but I usually just wear slim polo shirts, chambray work shirts, and chinos (I need to get around to buying a new pair of jeans soon). I happen to like wearing ties and a suit too. I guess what I'm wearing in the picture is an awkward in between of causal and business attire that doesn't translate well.

- jacket looks like something you'd wear to walk your dog, there's random writing on the sleeve, it's shapeless and warping and has ugly white draw strings.
- graphic on tee is pretty juvenile
- i was going to say that pants aren't horrid until i noticed the distressing all the way down the front. they also flair and need to be hemmed. but you should just toss them.
- you're not wearing shoes
- shirt is looks like it's women's, i could keep going but it just isn't good.
My suggestion is to take a back seat and start all over from basics.

Harsh but helpful. Thanks!

- I agree the jacket is bad.
- I disagree about the t-shirt. I think its a pretty cool design, the detail is lost in that fit pic.
- Agreed about the hem/flair issue. I don't think the distressing is a big minus.
- haha yes ok from now on all fit pics will have footwear
- Maybe its the material? I dont see it. But I will keep that in mind

I think what I will do is move to the noob thread and leave this to the pros smile.gif

You mean, this is the way to criticize a fit. You bet the guy would have reacted differently if he d been shitted on by one of the forum clowns.

Yeah, but it's not really fair for you to make this statement as I've seen little evidence that you're happy anywhere. I've seen you complain about Portland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

That said, I grew up in the Seattle area so overcast and 60 is perfect weather for me.

I'm a bit of a misanthrope, I'm also Jewish so I can complain about anything anywhere.

Are faces obscured because it's still shameful to be men who enjoy fashion?

The past few weeks I've only been able to skim the WAYWT, but there has been so much good stuff. 

 

Here's today:

Tee and sweater look, Hagg.

 

Don't like how the pants stack in the last pic, though. Otherwise they fit you great.

Also not feeling the boots in that outfit. The heel seems to be pretty tall.
