I think it's the haircut. That haircut screams 'I should be wearing business casual', so it comes off costumy.
im pretty sure a samurai champloo haircut would not have gone over much better either with people who don't like the fit anyways. I didn't really wear it to be dressy or weird... rather more like a loungey dressed down but of course something as dramatic is a kimono shirt jacket can easily turn people off
anyways. thanks all for the comments. might work better with sandals or lighter boots as suggested by synth and chaut and perhaps some less slim pants
I'm wearing jeans and a navy tee shirt, what the hell is "trying too hard" about this?
I usually dont post or critique but I dunno man, i kinda see where that dude was coming from, cos it ALWAYS seems to stick out at me when I browse this thread.
Rather than 'try hard' i think 'over thought' is more appropriate.
Even with just wearing a T and jeans you still look 'over thought' which isnt a good sign.
It could be just the way you stand or something, but often you look kinda uncomfortable in what you are wearing.
It looks as though you 'try hard' or are very 'anal' about measurements and getting your clothes to be 100% perfectly fitted but this 'over-thinking' is detrimental to the final fit.
eg. the tshirt in your latest fit looks like you were attempting to get a perfectly slim fitted t-shirt but it just looks a tad too tight. I reckon you easily could (should) have sized up 1 more. But I bet the reason you didnt size up one was because you would think it would look too long, correct? Thats the sort of vibe i get from your fits
same issue when I have seen you wear sweaters where they always seem to look a touch too tight or too short.
Or even with your shirts where I bet most of your shirts were tweaked by a tailor (like length and slimmed down, am I correct?) to achieve the 'perfect shirt' but it really just makes you look stiff and probably wouldve looked better if you just never got them tweaked at all
