golly gee willickers, this is not a great item to have purchased.
Well, first of all, a navy blazer is a very useful and versatile item. The wool navy blazer that I currently have has always been a little small, and the problem is getting worse as I lift weights and add muscle.
Haha, I promise you that my posting in SW&D is not masochistic! I really don't enjoy all the hate I get. The fits I post here are the stuff that I wear day-to-day, so SW&D seems more appropriate for that. Plus, while I often get a lot of hate, I sometimes get useful bits of advice - which is the main reason I post fits.
Concerning my sense of style... I appreciate many different types of looks, but I really only utilize a couple of genres. I suppose that, because of my background and upbringing, I've always looked up to a "refined" style of dress (the definition of "refined," of course, is in a way subjective, because what I regard as "refined" is based largely upon my own experiences and subconscious leanings). I really like a good suit, and I'm willing to spend top-dollar on a suit even though I don't wear them much. I respect and look up to (and perhaps also aspire to become) businessmen and attornies and whatnot - the type of people who wear suits every day - because I (somewhat subconsciously) view their place in society as being better than other's, and aspiration-worthy. This is pretty much an ingrained part of who I am. Because of this, I almost always prefer a collared shirt, and I only wear a tee/henley/something else when I know that a collared shirt (regardless of the collar type) would be out of place. I think I have a certain aversion to anything too "casual," as I am always trying to look a little "nicer" than other people. My friends, most of whom have no sense of style, often remark that I "look nice." I think that, due to the experiences and normalities and history of Western society, most people of a Western culture would say that I "look nicer" than my peers.
I have been trying to incorporate more casual items of clothing into my wardrobe. As my sense of style evolves, I think I am beginning to understand that I would do well to look more casual on certain occasions. I guess this casual look I'm developing is sort of #menswear. It still harkens back to the traditional modes of dress of the 1800s and 1900s - which, as I've said, I look up to. (E.g. lately I've been wearing chinos + tee + sneakers, instead of the usual chinos + OCBD + Bluchers).
The other genre of dress that I've been playing around with is sort of a minimalist Dior/rocker lookLike this (Click to show)
Black and white color palet, understated, slightly "rocker." I think this look appeals to me because it is something of a manifestation of my darker side. I think it's a cool look, and I like wearing it to parties and stuff, but I wouldn't really feel comfortable being a Dior rocker as a normal mode of dress, day to day, just going about my life. It's the look I break out when I want some extra swag, and/or am feeling like a bad boy (nawmsayn).
So, yeah... sorry for the OCD response. It's just clothing. My sense of will change naturally, and since it's an organic and analog process, I'm not too concerned about it. My likes and dislikes will change, and I'll change my clothing to match. C'est la vie!
BTW, check out my other recent purchases. No blazers here!Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Ya dood, it's terrible being 5% and overweight. I've been doing the scarf-and-barf method to get back down to 2%. Eventually, I hope to hit 0.5%!
