I feel as though some months ago (maybe more), this thread took a turn for the worse and morphed away from Recent (good) Non-Sartorialist Looks to random filler that is borderline Creepy Sartorial Images.  Would much prefer to see this thread cluttered up with Yukio Akamine types and colorful Italian dons than this preppy scrap heap stuff.

I like the 1st one best, looks like a comfortable casual ensemble.

Well I don't want to be the one that kills the thread so I'll post a suit that I really LOVE... the pattern matching at ends, color, everything about it is fantastic imo.

Okay, I'm a little confused. I've been taught by reading online from men's styling magazines that proper fit is when it's snug but you are able to fit a few fingers inside when buttoned, and that you should be able to move your arms fully up into the air and also when you extend your arms down by your side, you should be able to curl your fingers upwards and that's where the bottom of your jacket should end. As for the cuffs, you should show a little cuff at all times. The shoulders should not have extra padding. This is everything I've read online in regards to finding a proper suit. Can you point out what I am misguided on?

Is there a place where I can start? I am willing to learn what's proper and what's not. I come across many conflicting things online. For example, I read the information on Peyman Umay's site about what makes a bespoke suit etc, and someone in this thread said the site is filled with garbage and some of it is made up.

Is there a good place to learn the 101 of it all here on SF?

I'm willing to learn. Also, after I googled the definition of "sartorialist", I didn't see one other than it being a website. Can you explain what "sartorialist" is?

I find myself reflecting on pBOOTH's musings about troll v. not troll.

I think Viksra is genuinely interested in getting a better understanding about what makes good men's fashion. Unfortunately, he posted some pictures and got hammer-timed for it. He admits learning from fashion sites, and in many cases if you you don't have anything else to compare those to, you have no idea what to base a decision on.

Vik, I learned the most by perusing the Men's Clothing forum. Specifically this thread. There are many other educational threads in that section, but since I have no idea what interests you the most, I'd say browse the entire Men's Clothing section. You'll see where fashion and trends separate themselves.

IrateCustomer - thank you for your help! Yes I am genuinely interested in having a better understanding. And you are right, I don't have much to refer to in order to make a decision on. I even went so far as getting my hands on copies of these: Andy Gilchrist - The Encyclopedia Of Men's Clothes, Details - Men's Style Manual by Daniel Peres, Dressing The Man by Alan Flusser, Off The Cuff (The Essential Style Guide for Men and the Women who Love Them) by Carson Kressley, and AskMen.com Presents: The Style Bible by James Bassil. I've gone over each of these.

Again, thank you for your help and I'll try to post things that are more conservative and in tune with this thread from now on.

There's so much to learn from these pics... in a kind of 'worst practice' way.
