And just in case you and a couple more heroes around here are stupid in addition to rude, I offer you this;

e·lit·ism
/iˈlēˌtizəm/
Noun

The advocacy or existence of an elite as a dominating element in a system or society.
The attitude or behavior of a person or group who regard themselves as belonging to an elite.

Whats the value of feedback you don't listen to

I have only been back for maybe 2 weeks and you have posted the same fit at least 4 times

It seems you like to see yourself on the computer screen (which is fine, we all do) but you don't really care about feedback. A blog might be a better format for you.

And are you in LA? I feel like your fits would be way more interesting with more layers, which I'm guessing/hoping is a no go for you. As is though, boring, sometimes ill fitting chinos, boring but decent fitting button downs and generally boring to ugly shoes will always make for boring fits. Switch it up

I like your sweater who!

The real winner is Ervell who has everyone except AndrewRW convinced it's a sweater not a sweatshirt. I have another version and I admit they do seem like sweaters.

Pray tell, what should I be doing different? 


the difference here is that he didn't post this samefit a 100 times in 3 months. You can actually see the improvements in his subsequent pics.

 

Yes you have a right to post what you want but at point it becomes semi trolling when you post the same fits with the same complaint from not just you but everyone else.

I love that this same comment is made by every fucking person who gets criticized in this thread despite it being demonstrably untrue.

Thanks very much for the feedback - detailed feedback even. I will read a few more times and try to take it in. 

Appreciate the comments on the tucking - I can see for myself that it looks better. However during those times when I must dress casually, I would still like to wear an untucked shirt. I've taken another couple shots with today's fit, however this time with the shirt untucked to get some further feedback. It's not that I think the untucked shirt looks better (I dont), but I am trying to get some idea of what I should be going for when I begin tailoring my more casual shirts which I intend on wearing untucked. 

Obviously this shirt is still a little long, but overall I think of all my shirts, the Kitsune shirts i've bought recently fit best OTR - however they will still need the length taken up. This is a size 42 which is an L for Kitsune. As you can see, across the chest/shoulders the fit is pretty good. However it is still too long - I am guessing by about an inch. 

These are perhaps the loosest chino's I own as all my others are slim. I can see form the RHS picture what benesyd has been saying about matching the fit of the pants to the shirt, as I have previously been pairing slim chino's with un-tailored shirts. I can also see where the cuffing is making my legs look shorter. However as the leg opening is large, I am unsure how they will look once hemmed. I wouldn't want to be walking around with bell bottoms lol.

this camera angle is much better for you. same angle + shirt tuck and i think it would look even better.

Any notable instances of this (no snark, genuinely curious)

I think the closest example I can remember is that 17 year old kid whose first fit was a towel scarf and then got mad love for rocking all RO. Which speaks to dude's point. But doesn't rationalize his fit progression.

kind of true. not always. bene buys all the right brands and still gets shit all the time. (no hate, just using you as an example) and though i cant think of any off hand, im sure there are those that get love, and dont have much brand cache.

basically, getting good feedback here its a combination of a few factors.

there is a certain aesthetic that is currently appreciated here. i imagine in SWD that that maybe changes with the times, as this area is more progressive than MC/CM, but within each phase there is a set general aesthetic, that is considered good. certainly within that there is range, from slim to loose, colors, fabrics, different looks.... but there is a general agreed upon appreciated look. it may not be universal outside of SF, but here, it pretty much is.

so, if you want to post here, and hear people say you look good, you are going to have to conform, to a great degree, to what the people whos feedback you are seeking, appreciate. if you dont, obviously, you will always get henpecked, and the more you post fits that repeat themselves, and show very minmal change, and dont address the major things that people here dont like, the more crap you will take.

as to brands, certainly, there are certain brands that make clothing that generally fit into the appreciated aesthetic here. so obviously, when one buys those brands, they will get more love, simply because the garments themselves are designed the way people here like garments to be designed. and like brad said, i dont know why this is rocket science or why people bash this concept. its not about brand whoring, its about buying into a look that is appreciated. its not that brand A > brand B, its that brand A makes more clothing that people here like, than brand B.

on top of that, you have to find, within that array of brands, and the garments they make, ones that compliment your build, and general look. you can have all the brands people like, but if the clothing doesnt fit you right/does not jive with your vibe, you will still not garner much love. one needs to focus on what works for them, within the genrally appreciated aesthetic. and that could be branded items, or not.

if one can accomplish all that, they will find forum love. im not saying forum love is the be all end all of life, or even of style, but if that is what you seek, you have to be sensible about it. willing to learn, willing to think, willing to change, and willing to accept that others may have a better sense of what looks good on on you than you yourself do. if you can accomplish that, you will find yourself defending yourself less and less, and getting more and more appreciation.

disagree...

 

 

a list of posters who don't adhere to the "SWD aesthetics" and STILL get love

 

Barims

GDL
MOK
NYI

Shoreman

 

and I guess I can add myself

 

noone is telling him to wear SS and RO... all we are saying is that there is obviously an issue with his fit... MC or SWD. Many people have noted it. He should either take the advice OR somehow overcome the deficiency plaguing his fits. maybe adding some dimension to his style would work.. but at this pt it looks like We are watching elisix reruns.
