I still think you'd be great in Yohji, MOK. Ran out of thumbs...

ManofKent: I really like your fit, but I feel that if you're springing for Uniqlo you can do a lot better than Nigel Cabourn. Maybe Target?

If it looks good, who cares? If he hadn't put any brand names on there, would it have made a different impression? If so, I think we're missing the point here.
Personally, I think it takes skill and true style to incorporate high and low(er) brow items into a cohesive outfit.

Sorry for my blatant copyright material but I didn't mean any offense or trying to be a poser. Was trying to post something "relevant" aside from all these OT discussions.

Lately WAYWT thread has been pretty bad with all the talk about picking up girls and brand synergy. I agree with Tween, just be nice, and keep critiques on topic about outfits and posts of WAYWT. I know it's fun to dog pile and join the current topic of discussion but we have forums and thread for that IMO (DT), and I'm guilty of this too FWIW.

Anyways, I have not been too happy about the OT and I acted out as so...

i think it's a hallmark of good style for a person to be able to pair the cheap with the expensive and make it look good. it's just that most of the time, on this forum, at least, they are done with such disparate brands or with little thought that the combinations end up looking a bit off...
meh....i'm saying this even though i typically never cheap stuff, so what do i know...

+ a billion.... I was about to respond to Ronnel's most recent inanity dissing KingGimp's fit with this exact same point. The ability to mix high and low into something unique and personally relevant and illustrative is (to a certain extent) what it's all about. It's beyond cliche to criticize a fit with respect to the brand of a t-shirt... hell I could wear a Hang Ten t-shirt no problem with the right fit and it would look great... but nooooooo, it would be soooooooo much better if the exact (almost) t-shirt had a Balmain tag on the inside. Wearing all baller pieces all the time is a kop out for those who have neither taste nor style and unfortunately for you Ronnel or whatever the fuck your name is you lack all the critical components that endless amounts of your beloved cash simply cannot buy. Namely intelligence, taste, style, creativity, confidence and for the love of God, a sense of humanity. Merry Christmas dick... I'm sure they sell that somewhere.

btw KingGimp.... your fit is fine, great for a first post brother! nod[1].gif I like that aluminum chair in the corner for some reason. deets? lol8[1].gif

oh what the hell, ill pipe in too. the thought itself that a high end item needs to have others high end items alongside it, to make it work, makes no sense to me. either it looks good or it doesnt. thats really what it all boils down to i think.

toast what size guidis you wear? you should swap out the pants in first fit needs more drape or structure on bottom
post #81909 of 117668
43 in Guidis

the pants are sliding down my ass each photo take. Need to sew in another waist button bored.gif

I have so much pants now. The SS Berber jacket looks best with some pleated trousers, tapered with minimal to no break.

Many "high-end" items would probably work well with a careful selection from Uniqlo
post #81911 of 117668
What jet said about the pants. Out of thumbs.
post #81912 of 117668
Yup, everything is good but the pants.
post #81913 of 117668

It's pretty obvious I have great style and taste. I dress very well. I'm also intelligent (if I wasn't smart, I wouldn't be the success I am today) and have the utter most confidence (you're a fool if you don't see that). I may lack compassion towards others, but that's only because I'm a shark, I make and take.

So then you are probably just giving horrible advice in order to screw people over....
