post #87841 of 117670


the jacket cinches in at the hem. if there was no ribbing or the ribbing was looser it would hang straight down.

i dont really believe in the clothing as optical illusion (like horizontal lines vs vertical lines) or in the color wheel theory of matching colors or the idea that certain colors go better with certain skin tones (like who makes up these, it seems rather arbitrary to me), but based on what now 6 years on this forum experience tells me that some silhouettes are more flattering

you insist on stacks and shorter tops, but it seems to me (and pretty much everybody who responds to your fits) that something is not working. maybe try changing a little and see what happens?

you dont have to get rid of the greaser look. but you can pull it off better or you can keep doing the same thing and hope people stop ragging on you

Now I'm mostly tired, but yeah, this was definitely unexpected.

I suppose SVB might have little reason to suspect it, but his style and one other person's actually inspired lots of my recent clothing purchases. Pics from his Tumblr come up alot when you search #SNSHerning there, and I actually copped my Stark because I saw a "normal looking person" could wear it. Tons of fit pics in different colors, and I just loved the versatility of how he wore it. I also just bought my first piece from Epaulet, mint green rivet chinos, because and another poster with a Tumlbr I respected seem to buy alot from there. Both seemed to dress well without their clothes overwhelming their personalities, and I liked that I might still look even better than I had while remaining myself. I was even feeling particularly warm toward this poster because of this inspiring story about his style transformation, hoping I might eventually achieve the same transition; that's why I was concerned to see that he agreed I was "trolling", and why I wanted to understand things with a PM.

Now I wonder how that guy and this guy are the same person. The joke is definitely on my dumb ass.

Dude, I gave you the option to say "fuck off, I don't know you." I could understand that; no one needs groupies, and maybe there are legitimate reasons not to engage a potential troll. But to repost a long personal message asking for genuine advice in full? To dress the part of a gentleman and not play it? Yeah, trust me, I'm not skilled enough to be on that superduper next level troll shit to calculate that SVB would refan this petty drama for all to see, when I genuinely tried to bow out.

Ignoring the opinions of people like caseyfud, a moral midget whose opinion I could give two shits about, I'm getting the impression CDHagg, Tiralleur, and a few others think that to finally get to that next level one has to become to an asshole. That's what this means, right: "My gut tells me he's legit. I used to have the same mindset/attitude, and I wasn't trolling."? Ah, as soon I've "made it", I'll stop being so damn pretentious and start punking noobs with the vigor of the truly enlightened. Why? All my original point, after being flamed, was I don't get why the few obnoxious posters in this thread have to ruin how others get their advice.

But there is a silver lining to all this. SVB has driven away the troll! There are only a few others who could have done it; you've found the fucking magic beans, you piece of shit. What's up is down and what's down is up and I can't tell if I'm being driven by people looking for "value" by investing in quality "pieces", or being driven down the river toward the heart of darkness by petty, truly nasty pieces of work.

what waitaminute... how did I get dragged into this?

Casey, do you have a pair of brown chukkas?   I kind of really like this, but I also kind of think different footwear would make it better.

what waitaminute... how did I get dragged into this?

 

You commented after I did that I was being honest, or something like that.

 

BTW what ever happened to our meetup?  We were going to do a Houston meetup or something, but it never happened...

post #87846 of 117670

wow tots forgot about the meetup. We shall have many other chances... H town is like a second base...

 

 

as for my statement... how did he come to that conclusion? I was laughing more at you than him... because of how honest it read.

Well, he thought I was saying that he needs to become an asshole to get to the next level... you seemed to be in agreement with what I was saying, even though I was saying something completely different.

 

Oh, and I don't actually live in Houston anymore.  I visit on occasion, but I'm glad to be gone.

 

NOBD - great fit.  One of your best I think.

I sized up to L. (My Stark and Tonus are M.) I'll post some comparison pics later, in the SNS thread.
