Chinos, plaids or oxfords or tees, and baller-basic footwear should not be hard to pull off, but if your tops don't fit, they don't fit. Extensively tailoring a $300 kitsune plaid seems like the wrong way to go.

Appreciate the feedback.

While there's certainly some truth and fact to what you have said, there's more to it than that.

FYI, I'm 5'8, 76-80kg depending on how lazy I am with the gym, and have a chest of approx 95cm.

While many of my existing shirts I have look terrible untucked, it's not completely down to my height and size. I only just a year ago got into buying online and began buying like crazy without thinking about measurements, sizing and so forth. It sounds stupid, but I was buying party based on the deals which came up and jumped if i liked a particular design. I didn't understand 'fit' and truth be told, I'm still learning.

What I've discovered in recent months is that all of my Acne and APC shirts which I bought in size L should have been bought in size M. Except for instances where the shirt is a particularly slim cut. Generally speaking though, I am an M. By buying size L shirts I figured I was compensating for a bit of an existing pot belly (now gone) but not considering what it did for the length of the shirt and sleeves. I understand that now.

I've actually only ever tailored 2 shirts. 1 which I ruined completely (too short) and the other which I wore in the spoiler I linked yesterday of the Ervell fit with the untucked shirt. Other than that I haven't bothered as for the most part I can get away with the length of an L. I just roll the sleeves which I would do anyway. Moving forward I'll just buy the right size. Another example is Kitsune. I bought all of them in size 42 (XXL) but they fit like an APC L. So the last 2 I bought are a 41 (XL, but like an APC M or 48).

Also its important to remember how shiity mirrors can be. Take the Ervell fit from yeserday with the tucked shirt and compare it with the below. It's amazing what having someone else take a photo (or at least standing back far enough from the camera and mirror) does for ones proportions in fits. Yesterday's Ervell fit made me look like a midget.

Kitsune (M!)
APC (L)
Acne (32)
Grenson (7.5G UK)

Try WvG after dinner cut. Serious. I think it would work well for you.

Also, most of your fits still look top heavy because you like your pants too slim in my opinion.
post #97925 of 115942
I've actually been trying to pay some attention to that and my latest few pairs of chinos have been a straight cut instead of slim. In addition to that I try to pay attention to the type of shoes I pair with the outfit. Not just on colour, but whether a chunky commando sole is 'too much' for fits with a slim pant etc.

Edit. Just had a look at WvG and you might just be right there VLSI. Taking a look at; http://www.wolfvsgoat.com/collections/shirting-1/products/after-dinner-shirt-in-blue-tattersalle - it seems like an M might be perfect. They look to be cut short enough to wear casually un-tucked but wide enough in the chest/shoulders.

Awesome fit, how'd you size those DNAs? Was contemplating to get a pair, but I've felt the sizing on those is all over the place depending on the season (my ZamB pants range from 46 to 50 and all fit perfectly)

Sexy, fresh, the personification of affluence.

When I walked in the office people didn't know where to look, my beautifully elegant tassels? my perfectly draped shirt? It was funny watching everyone trying to process what they were seeing :P. Needless to say, my lavish lifestyle lives within my cloth.

Are those socks or are you severely sun burnt?

I am real, I know it is hard to believe due to how pretty I am.

 

It's a vicious circle, imagine looking through the phone camera at this outfit, it's only natural it will happen but I tried to hide it as well as possible.

 

@The guy below, they are red socks, I am not sunburnt.

Hard to resist adding commentary, but no one wants the thread derail that it entails. Want to post a fit pic, but it's been uniqlo + AA everyday with the humidity here

I could have sworn I saw those chinos at the Goodwill I went to last week. are they Banana Republic? Also found a very similar pair of loafers made by Bass. Great pick-ups, DP.

Everything in that fit is very easily obtained at a thrift store.
