Recent purchases - Part II - Page 2137

post #32041 of 44977

Well they were actually some of the first items I bought before looking at some of the other more accepted brands. And to be completely honest, their shirts fit me pretty well. I think I have 4 - so not a massive expense invested. 

 

I've been trying to add color and texture into my wardrobe hence the splurge over the last 6-8 months. That and reading up on here is helping me to hone in on what I like and feels comfortable

we should transition to fit pics only, since i'm guessing most model shots are recent imaginary purchases. who is balling this out of control??
post #32043 of 44977

lol.. you can see most of this shit in my fit pics from the S&C WAYWN thread.

 

Nothing is imagined. Some of it is on the way though from recent xmas sales.

Lots of people... there are members with watch collections worth more than your house. What elisiX posted is like one transaction for Andrewgreg @ Mr. Porter.

why did you cop everything you already have

I might add, easily 95% of what I bought I got on sale.

Also, why do you aim for the mallbrand-look?
Surely there must be other styles or aestethics you like you could try out instead of just looking like every other dude? 
I mean, nothing you wear is bad per se, but now that you're (hopefully) gradually getting a sense of "fashunz" by following waywt and this thread, don't you feel that you should maybe start developing your personal style?

 

tl;dr 

Plaid shirts are boring

LOVE these. what are they?
post #32050 of 44977

Fair question. It's a slow process I think. A couple things I've learned recently (from SF no less) is that I owned a lot of poor fitting, average quality items. At the end of the day, the way I've always dressed is casual and a street wear look outside of work. I used to suit up daily and didn't think much of weekend wear, but I have not worn a suit to work for about 2 years now and I never updated my wardrobe to suit. 

 

So this first step has really been about adding color, increasing the quality and feeling comfortable while doing so. The reality is, I work in a very casual environment, and while these items may be quite commonplace on this forum, in my world they're miles ahead. The look and style I admire is too formal for my office and I have only just started to introduce tucked shirts / blazers into my fits for more formal days (client meetings etc). 

 

Some risks can certainly be taken from here. Let's see what 2013 brings. 

 

Here's a few examples of a more formal look vs casual look in my current wardrobe.

I was guessing that was the case, but anyways that's progress so that's good.
But still, I find plaid shirts incredibly boring laugh.gif
(the kitsune ones are nice though)

dude is a biz cas baller
post #32053 of 44977

This is how I want to dress. If I did, i'd seriously be roasted so hard in my work environment (IT-WEB). 

 

 

 

At the moment, I am trying to head more toward this.
