Yeah I didn't use the best wording, but with a few exceptions it usually ends up looking like a maxi skirt.  I guess maybe the leg separation is more obvious IRL but still.


I appreciate people trying more esoteric looks, so no hate intended, I just think this is one that's not working for a lot of you guys.

- Jacket looks too formal for the rumpled pants and chambray (?) shirt. Just my sense from what's visible of the shoulder line and fabric drape. It could probably use more work at the tailor. Hard to get a handle on fit with the angle/not buttoned/backpack, but the sleeve looks long and the whole thing looks a little big for the (for lack of a better word) #menswear vibe you have going on otherwise. Today's sportcoat fits from vitaminh and mikey have more cohesion between their pants and jackets. The fabric on your jacket looks v nice though.
- Pants could be hemmed. Rumpled is fine but it clashes with the more tailored drape and cut of the jacket.
- Shoes are a little weak. Two tone doesn't bug me but the proportions of the wing over the toes and the closed lacing do. What are they?
- The leather backpack looks well built but it'll ruin your jacket shoulder and generally throw off the fit of any tailored jackets you wear with it. I wear backpacks a lot, and I avoid wearing them with tailored wool jackets. For jackets with padded shoulders it will compress the padding, (unevenly if you wear it on one shoulder) and for unstructured jackets the friction can damage/pill the fabric.
- Sunglasses look dated/Matrixy



  Great points shoreman. One of the things I like to do is take something formal-ish, like that jacket, and try to recontextualize in a casual context. But you're right about a lot of the points. The pants are definitely too rumpled to work with that jacket and probably their fit is a bit too slim to pair with a padded jacket. ::reminds self to get them pressed::


The shoes are waxed suede/canvas in chocolate brown and that "Barbour green." They're a Barbour x Rockport colab. Very comfy and handle rainy days like today well.

Oh come on, those sunglasses are this year's Coach in gunmetal. Its nearly impossible to find non-aviators that work on me. ffffuuuu.gif


With the backpack, sadly I agree. I feel the backpack was to blame for the perceived bad fit of the jacket though. But let me know, here's a cleaner shot.

jacket looks good just doesn't work with such casual pairings

Take some back.

Don't forget, guys: hakamas to you, me, and your SF friends; skirts to anyone else who sees you.

it's equally close minded to imply that anyone who thinks an outfit is too feminine is a homophobe.
