Okay, I thought you were mimicking tom waits. I am no voice teacher so it's probably best not to take my snark too seriously. Keep doing what your doing.

I know I've said this already in the Style Forum Success Stories thread, but your transformation from this is pretty amazing:



It also makes me think the idea of "personal style" is overrated. Someone in the Success thread argued that most of the transformations made the people look like other completely different people, but I don't think too many would argue the people in question looked better. Obviously there is always room for personal quirks, but pretty much all you need to consider is fit and if your clothing suits you, and quality. I think too many people try to make it some deep philosophy. I think more often than not it comes down to seeing someone else do it, and trying it on yourself until you find something that feels right.

Who fit is too good for that bracelet IMO. Contrasting saturated blues look awesome and perfect shoes.

Johan- Just go barefoot b/c those shoes and socks are brutal.

Can  you link me to the pants? Really liking them

post #98711 of 117677
I guess the pants do look a bit blue-ish in that photo, but irl they're just a plain black. They're the slim straight fit, so I'm pretty sure that they're these (don't know if Uniqlo has altered the fit of their jeans at all in the past year).

And as far as the personal style stuff goes, I'm hesitant to suggest I actually have one. I've worn a bunch of disparate items over the course of the past year, and I've yet to really settle on something I really love. I feel great wearing this kind of outfit, but I can't say for sure that "vaguely Western" is a look I'll stick with. Sure I've recently come to like a lot of the LVC and LMC stuff, but there's no way I'm headed to denim-head or cowboy territory. Whenever I look at an outfit and think, "yeah, this looks really f'n great," it always seems like something that happened by chance. For example, I purchased the boots thinking they'd be pretty cool with some faded blue jeans; however, it turns out that they already work pretty well with these black jeans, and then I wound up ordering the shirt (and I've still got a while to go before my Nudies are sufficiently beat up, as a previous fit shows pretty well). For a long time I'd look at individual items and think, "damn, that looks great," and just go for it without considering how it might fit with what I already own.

I know this forum has a tendency to blast practical concerns like versatility, but when you're still building a wardrobe it really helps to be more thoughtful about the bigger picture: can I actually wear this? or am I purchasing something that will just sit in my closet until I buy the *next* thing? (I didn't really ever do the latter, but I did buy some pretty damn incongruous things that I simply wished I'd passed on.) Oh, and not to mention the fact that there are just a ton of different things I like/would like to wear/find inspiring. It's a frustrating balancing act, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy to see how things have changed over the course of a year.

Firstly who, I really love that fit.

Secondly, there is so much in your post above that resonates with me. It's nice to read it laid out like that.

Seeing your before and after and Casey's the other day, I am very impressed.

Yes, the Tetris Gambit. I know it well. Forever hopeful the next piece will bring satisfaction, unity and fulfillment, the one that drives it home.

@who, i think for me its increasingly a question of comfort. Obviously yohji is very comfortable and great to wear whenever i can like on weekends. But for med school ive found some great brands that make stuff that is very comfortable to wear. Its nice to look good but its better to feel good while doing it.

But that's kind of my point. I think you look better than you did simply because you started wearing better clothes and got a better haircut. Your style isn't uniquely yours. And when I say that I don't mean that as a knock. It's just that I sometimes see or hear people, when asked to "define their style", pause and reflect and try to come up with a profound answer, when half of the time the real answer is probably "I saw someone else wear it and I thought it looked cool.", but I think that might be something most people don't want to admit. I don't think style has to be as abstract as some people make it out to be. There sometimes seems to be a resistance to the idea that you can just buy style or that style can be copied. There are a lot of people who dress well in this thread, but I don't think there are a lot of completely original people in this thread, but I don't think there needs to be.
