post #98941 of 117668

1 day into participating in the waywt thread I have attempted strange t shirt layering

I think it was moderately successful and I would like people to chime in with brandlists that are moderately attainable and stock dope drapey t's

random vintage shirt, hanes, old navy, common projects, that is the most fucking plebian brand list ever on this website

also took a picture with my army jacket on

^correction, it wasn't successful at all
What you want for layering t-shirts are thin fabrics since they often drape better

If you can afford it, common options are Rick Owens, Damir Doma and Boris Bidjan Saberi (can be found cheaper on supermarket and in B&S here on styleforum)
Cheap options are whatever loose and thin (like, almost see-through thin) ones you can find a HM/Forever21/similar, with the Loose Summer Shirt from American Apparel being one several people here like (size up one)

KG I think you should leave that bedford as is and get something else for the slimmer look.

which ones the good ones or the bad ones?

as of right now the only styleforum members I have met in the wild were at mc meetups...

I would rather meet swd people in the wild though 1/2 of the dudes in mc are dicks 1/4 are senile and the last quarter talks about trap music while wearing 3 piece suits

Your post is even less helpful than his. Good job.

Ian, is that really how you button your jacket?

Hey Ian, just a few points
- I think there's more to a "layered shirts look" than just the seem standing out. That doesn't really work for me.
- The white seem looks a bit sloppy while the one from the tee above is perfectly straight.
- I think it doesn't really work on you because it makes you look way boxier than you are. You're a skinny dude, not boxy.
- Talking skinny…your jeans are too skinny for what you're wearing above. They look fine with the jacket (change that buttoning, brah), but not with just the tees.

I can't suggest you anything to help you get a good layered look - I'm a fat dood and hence think it wouldn't suit me very well - but I hope some of my points could be of help. I really didn't carefully look at the other fits, there were just too many of 'em in one post. You might want to split that up, pick the ones you think are really cool and post them one at a time. But anyway, keep on experimenting, it's the only way to find out what's your style (feels and look good on you).

(edit: Woah, so many typos. I need to sleep.)

Ian,

Your previous post's fits were not horrible, these last 2 are. That is what happens when you try to run before you can walk (im austrian, pardon my english)

You have some good basis (from earlier post you can choose more or less the right size of clothes, which is already a very good start !), but you need to take it slow, man. First work on getting good quality basics and try to assemble simple fits. A good pants+tee fit is not that easy to put together, you need to start with that. Then you can add more pieces as you go and progress.

But dont believe you know style just because you have read 100 pages of this forum or bought a designer piece. THe process takes years (and im in the same boat as you, i dont want to sound arrogant), not months, let alone days.

Good brands for basics :

Uniqlo (the cheapest and best quality for the price i think)

Alternative apparel

Threads for thoughts

 

I would avoid H&M, Zara, Gap, etc... THeir quality seems lower than above brands as far as I've seen.

Hope this helps..

Probably better in terms of length, but the bedford is unvented and flares out a bit near the bottom. It might look awkwarda size up, I dunno.

Looks great keep it.

I don't think you have to drop that much coin for thin layered tees. You can often find stuff like that at Uniqlo, Club Monaco and even American Apparel . I just feel like the brands KOY mentioned would have him flying before he can crawl.

not normally but I am "experimenting" if you want me to post a fit that follows the rules I can blow you away with impeccable mc but seeing as this is swd I would think I would have more leeway in branching out, in this case I was inspired by a pretty common swd practice of buttoning top heavy

 

looking back I don't actually know why I am defending my fit so much it wasn't that good, maybe tirailleur thumbing my first post gave me an inflated sense of self worth...

I think I am going to go back to lurking for a while

I do see that trend(?) but personally I rarely like it. Out of the three you posted, the only one I think looks good in terms of buttoning is the guy in black with red wing boots, and I think the key to it is that the top button is open too (so it's kind of like a cardigan front, with the bottom button open, turned upside-down). If he did up the top button I think he would look a bit silly.

The response has been pretty friendly for SF so don't let any negativity get to you, mostly people are in fact trying to help out.

^ Both nice (shirt choices match shoe choices well IMO), and you got thinner frames since the last time I paid any attention in WAYWT, they look good.

Oh I realize this has been incredibly tame by sf standards I just think for a while at least I will learn more from lurking than from posting
