Post a pic with the blazer buttoned. Also, if your photos are that grainy, they don't need to be so big; reduce the image size by like 50% or something.

Here you go. Took it yesterday while wearing pants made from the same material as the blazer: The shoulders look a bit too broad mainly because of my pose, btw. And can't you just resize the pics? It's pretty simple to do with a web browser.

why should i resize your pics? fuck and don't button the bottom button
post #184 of 226
Because it's as simple as holding the ctrl button + scroll wheel down? And why shouldn't I button the bottom button as well?
post #185 of 226
OK dude, I don't want to have to zoom out of the entire page or open your pictures in a new tab and make them smaller because you're too fucking lazy to open them in any image editor and resize them by 50% before posting Also, you never button the bottom button on blazers, they're not meant to be buttoned, it throws off the whole silhouette

It's not actually a fit that I wore outside (or how I actually wear it, for that matter), I assumed that you wanted a pic that shows all of the buttons buttoned since it's a better indication of how the suit fits. And Jesus, calm down. The reason my pictures are relatively large is because it makes it easier to see the details of the fit.

You should post it the way you wear it because that's the way that it can be commented on. Generally you wear 2 button blazers with the top button buttoned but without the bottom button buttoned. The details are pointless when your pictures are grainy. Uncontrol is not being nearly as mean as he can be and you're being a tard.

Well, he wanted pics of it buttoned up. I usually wear it unbuttoned. And fine, I'll resize my pictures next time. No need to throw a hissyfit over it.

except it's not because you're not supposed to do it up, ever

also i really hate plain black blazers if you're going to wear them solo, especially over t-shirts. should have some print or texture or be a different color

It's actually charcoal, not black. I'll post a picture of me wearing it with just the top button buttoned tomorrow.

And if I'm not mistaken here, whether or not you can button all of the buttons on a blazer/suit jacket depends on the button stance. It's not a rule that you have to follow to the letter. Mine's not particularly low, similar to the Jil Sander 2B suits which are meant to have all the buttons buttoned. Socal can probably attest to that - I remember he was wearing one in a WAYWT post.

Or faded jeans? It looks kinda off with a dress shirt unless it's one with a semi-spread or spread collar, which are both too formal for this outfit. I could wear jet black jeans, but that's kinda boring.
i wouldn't go so far to say you /cant/ wear a tshirt or faded jeans with a blazer, but if its not a fairly rugged looking fabric, like tweed or wool flannel or cotton or something, the sleek jacket and faded jeans tend to look a bit out of place, unless you know how to pull it off. and t shirts with blazers, i've seen some nice ones before, but most of the time its usually a very non-formal looking jacket, like something made of cotton that is meant to be dressed down and casual looking. for instance, the user saucemaster posted some nice casual fits with a blazer/sportcoat/whatever; http://img695.imageshack.us/img695/1395/wayw03141.jpg http://img69.imageshack.us/img69/515...twhiteshir.jpg and more recently, sq4you posted some nice ones; http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/7766/img1173x.jpg http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/7452/img1389l.jpg

you can button them if you want, but 99% of the time, you're best off leaving the bottom button undone no matter how many buttons it has, it tends to just look alot nicer. as much as I hate all of MC's rules about what one should and shouldn't do, the 'dont button the bottom button' rule is the only one that I actually agree everyone should follow.

The blazer's not as rugged as tweed, but it's not super-sleek either. I remember fuuma posted this nice fit with a charcoal blazer that could very well pass as a suit jacket: I imagine that my blazer's similar in texture and color. But yeah, it's rare to see the look being done well with faded jeans. In all honesty, I don't like sq4you's first fit that much. Maybe it's the jeans that throw off the look. And I can't see his blazer well enough to see wether or not it's sleek too.
post #194 of 226
Blazer is nice but I think the cut is much too formal for faded jeans, even if the texture/colour/etc is rugged as you say it is. Fuuma's blazer there looks pretty casual from the small notch lapels, taper in the forearms and somewhat lack of structure (note how it wrinkles around his arms), but even he hasn't gone for faded jeans with that blazer.

- Replace the white tee by a tee in any dark earthy color, black, or a very dark gray. Scoop-neck or U-neck, ideally. Tees with a normal C-neck look to conservatice for the look you're going for. V-necks, on the other hand, rarely look good with a blazer, as V under V just doesn't look right in most cases... - Get a nice, longish leather necklace if you're into the tee/blazer/jeans look to make the whole look "pop".. - Go with non-distressed, more "dressy" jeans next time... ( black or dark gray, ideally. ) - Unbutton the bottom button ( Although it isn't true that you never button the bottom button on a 2-button blazer. It depends, as already said by you, on the button stance and look you're going for... ) See here -> http://img805.imageshack.us/img805/5...mwss100008.jpg | http://img810.imageshack.us/img810/3...mwss100025.jpg - Follow Uncontrols word of advice and get something - fabric-/texture-wise - more interesting/playful and fashionable next time... See my newest Margiela blazer -> http://img94.imageshack.us/img94/1457/mmm1.png | http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/8695/mmm2.png All IMO, of course. ( I will post a tee/blazer fit soon ) Side note: Strictly speaking this isn't a blazer, but a suit jacket...
