Not sure how I feel about this Geller Richard knit blazer.  I was expecting it to be a bit more substantial I guess.  Something close to the thickness of my Schneider Ijevan, but this is much much lighter weight.

 

Thoughts?

It's been said often but sw&d has enormously changed since 2009 or so. Just have a look through the old waywt thread, it's pretty striking. Most of the regular posters from then are long gone, Fuuma was there, Jet was there obviously, I think Willy was there also. Boat shoes backlash/DBs consecration had yet to happen, Band of Outsiders was probably the most talked about brand, everyone wanted slim shirts, workwear was exploding with WWM and EG. The quest for slim fitting chinos (and later slim fitting sweatpants) was a big deal. High-fashion was Kunk repping Rick, Socal repping Rick/Jil/Damir/Thom Browne and other weird shit and Jet talking about his knits, also BrianSD and a couple of others whose names escape me. Guys like Chronoaug and Magician also cared about those kind of brands, most other ppl were all about new standards and alden indys. Asobu was already posting YY waywts though iirc.. Berlin report and Pinkpantser had cool waywts too.

Ervell/Geller/Opening Ceremony/Obedient Sons and the likes were happening at the same time and eventually generated some interest, some new posters like ARW, kelvinsense etc started to go for more high fashion-stuff, rick, raf, jil... It was still mostly mid tier APC level brands but at some point I guess the multiplication of webstores, the deeper and deeper sales and the launch of GILT made the more expensive high fashion brands more accessible and definitely tipped the balance towards and new kind of consumption and a new kind of sw&d.

At least you can say Jet and I are consistent, maybe not about brands but mindset/runway fashion orientation.

I think I have the same APC suit. It's a difficult colour, I've found, but can be amazing.

Late to the party, but henleys are basically my "slutty tee". Definitely a favorite with the girls.

yeah but you two are a touch older than the average SW&D poster IIRC

Option C. The top half of B looks best, but something just looks really far off with the fit overall. I think its the fit of the pants against the long t-shirt. It makes you look like a little person (and I don't think you are...).

I don't understand the super constructed shoulders in the jacket and formal shoes with the rest of the fit. Seems sloppy and out of touch with itself.

 

Might make more sense if the pants didn't balloon around the ankles. Maybe.
