That's a good observation. The blazer looks noticeably better -- although still dreadful -- if you cover his chimpanzee arms.

The shoulders looks good...

That sort of glass-half-full nonsense is an insult to your screen name! biggrin.gif

LOL I agree - crutches are spreezy on a trillion.

Ah yes...the affably unbuttoned button-down collar. I like everything else though.

GW of those infamous days is top contender for my personal "best dresser ever" list.

I find the pockets on his jacket to be rather odd. Or do I err in my judgement?

Perfect length on that jacket.

Clearly I am not a regular poster, but in the interest of you all having further fuel to rip my style apart;

Clip on braces - they are comfortable and feel a little more at home with a jacket and trousers than buttoned ones. If I didn't need my trousers to stay up I'd forgo the things altogether.

Size - Yes, I am fat. You can all worship skinny men in skinny suits until the cows come home, but it won't make me any skinnier. I am a little above 100kgs, a little under 6 foot tall, about a 46 chest and 38 waist. If I could be rail thin and wear clothes in a more flattering way, I would, but there is little that flatters me. I photograph badly, I make good clothes look bad while my slim colleagues can make bad clothes look good.
Alan is skinny. Jake is skinny. Mark is skinny. I am fat. Get the fuck over it.

Signet Ring - I had this made when my grandfather passed some 6 years ago. It is his family crest, with their family motto inside. For the Australians on here, I grew up in Cabramatta, so I lay no claim to being aristrocratic, but I love my family and am not ashamed of my name. My wife wears a Kamon on her formal kimono, I have a ring. Only on SF can we get berated for something so intimate and personal as that.

Tweed - I love tweed. I love rich, sturdy cloth, and I am not a banker. I am not a lawyer. I do not have board meetings. I do not sit behind a desk anywhere, I do not meet with stiff lipped upper crust people and try to be unassuming. I have no dress requirement other than to enjoy my clothes and try to help my customers. I enjoy wearing tweed, flannel and cord, particularly in the cold.

Beard - My wife likes my beard. She means more to me than any of you.

Tan - I have the best tan my Irish blood allows.

Posh Biker - I am neither posh nor a biker.

Fuddy Duddy - I am a bit fuddy duddy. Anyone who wants to call me out on it in person is more than welcome.

Again, I don't post often. Maybe if I lose 20 kilos, cure my baldness, get a fake tan and dress for your job and not mine, I will be accepted on here. Until then, I'll leave this forum to my betters.

Sorry for the haters, E. But pls. try to ignore them. Most of their hate is the result of envy. The rest is foolishness.

I think you and the other guys look great.
post #12119 of 12873
+1 Don't let shallow people hiding behind the Internet get you down (and I know you don't).

Focus instead on being the role model you are for heavier gentlemen around the world (and I suspect some of the haters fall into that category).

You are proof positive that you don't have to be skinny to look fantastic and well-dressed.

Cheers to you, Ethan.
