Elisix, here's a thought: You seem to approach "layering" as something that will intrinsically make you more stylish. During an Australian summer, all that a tee under your button down is going to accomplish is making you hotter - it doesn't add visual interest all by itself, and a crew neck like that tends to do nothing more than make the wearer look sloppy. In addition, plaids (at least, those that you have been choosing) are a pretty traditional "fall" pattern - not a problem as such, but combined with your usual choice of autumnally-colored chinos (and shoes, come to think of it), you end up looking pretty seasonably inappropriate. Again, this doesn't particularly matter, but if you're looking to add interest to your biz-cas wardrobe, simply altering the colors (or the lengths) of your garments and putting on an extra shirt isn't going to change anything.

I would suggest that you look to posters like RegisDB9, FlyingLotus, Hendrix, and conceptual_forest (just to name a random few) for some varying ideas on material and silhouette choice. Why not try, for example, light blue linen trousers, canvas oxfords, and a silk-blend shirt? I'd also stop cuffing the chinos - either let them stack, because they're slim enough (and I'd give this a shot first), or hem them. The awkward cuff that sits on top of your shoes doesn't look good. Finally, I'd also suggest exploring other blazer options. The few that you've posted have all had relatively high buttoning stances (this could be camera angle; it's hard to tell), and it doesn't do your stocky upper half any favors (no hate, I avoid them). Maybe try something lower. Margiela is the very obvious example, but I'm sure there are more, and if you're not tall they might overwhelm you.

I'm thinking... I'm thinking like, what would Moo do if he were elisix? You know? What would Moo do? And I know - Moo would drop a suit/shorts fit to really take the trolling to a new level, and then make a long post about leaving the forum while actually staying. That's when Moo would get better.

The whole 3rd person thing in that post is weirding me out...

it's the nature of identification and division. in this case it's pretty innocuous but in others it's how we get to things like racism and nationalism. it's good to recognize it for what it is, but if we really got into it we would have a long discussion (with no conclusion) not really fit for these forums.

Guys with short arms should not do the sleeve roll to the forearm.

notwithit, that Barena looks good. It fits well also, a lot better than some of your other blazer fits which I think tend to be a bit too tight.

Excellent, NWI. You found the winner. You can stop now!

The fact that you counted the number of thumbs/reps that our respective posts got and use it to validate anything makes you a rather sad human being, but in reality I actually agree with this:

What's the trending look on SuFu compared to the SF 'Black jacket, white shirt, dark tight jeans/pants, KVA/Lanvin/Margiela/etc sneakers' look?
