SVB did have good fits overall, but I would not say ideal silhouette

It's not nice to call people fat.

look at user RegisDB9 for some inparation. you mentioned that layering isnt really an option because of where you live, correct?
regis lives in Florida/Caribbean and very rarely wears layers.
I think you should start by replacing any khakis with denim and buttoning up your shirts. never wear an unbuttoned shirt please smile.gif
you can probably find a nice cardigan to wear over your tee. something like this http://suspensionpoint.ca/cardigan-neighbour
anyways, i think all your stuff fits well so youre on the right track. cheers

 

Thanks for the words and I appreciate the advice also. It can get quite hot here in Sydney - AUS, so wearing multiple layers in the summer (which were in now) is generally a no go. I'll take a look into your suggestions as it might help point me in the right direction. 

 

Those Khaki's are a looser fit chino which I wear rarely. I think it might have been the only/first time i've posted them up actually. For me, I thought the Navy shirt went well with them and the issue with that fit was more to do with the uber long white T underneath and the shirt being open.

 

Most days (most fits you see), will be Chino's of varying colours and Acne/Ksubi denim which is in my new rotation. Blue's and one black. Being a redhead - black rarely makes it's way into my wardrobe. Perhaps a mistake, but it's something i've always maintained.

I firmly believe there is truth to this but it's not the pants being tight, rather the shirts being loose. We spoke via PM about this in more detail and I can see how some fits would come across like this. Having a bit of a gut, I tend to buy regular fit M shirts or mostly L/XL shirts. However my waist and all denim/chino's are 32". A mismatch.

 

This should be the easiest thing to fix though. Up until 8 months ago I was training 3-5 days a week but have let things go a little (I got married... lol). So jumping back on the wagon and buying better fitting shirts (darting existing shirts) should bring the two in line I hope.

nice but foreshortening on the legs in the second looks like your torso starts at your knees.

lesam not a fran of those jeans - look kind of baggy and way too long.

Not really WIWT, as I was just trying out the idea I presented last night on RFT. Can't wear the boots in the snow, too fucking slippery. I think it works though.



We're having a Christmas party, so this is what I'll be wearing instead.

Definitely would if I could walk with the boots. Need to show them to a cobbler and see what he can do. I could imagine it becoming a uniform for me.

You could have them topy'd, there was some guy in the HM&MMM-thread who did that and it looked great, and obivously also improved "grip" a lot (cost is 30-60$, when they're worn out you can just have new ones put on = boots will last longer since you don't wear out the actual sole)

They should tighten up a bit whenever I throw them in the washer. That said I once made the mistake of hemming my petite standards, never again.

Yeah, planning on doing that.
