na, no trolling going on. I wasn't dressed to impress in that picture. I was giving an example of my body type, long lanky arms, not too in shape. Plus, it was close to 4 a.m. Flip flops were there because I live on the beach. Thanks for the advice... I'll take some more pics in a few to show my attempt to dress 'nice'. lol I usually wear long sleeve button ups (Abercrombie, Thirty Six Red {Target... w00t}, or Dior), jeans (not holy), and the flops... but it's starting to cool down so maybe I'll break out the twill sport coat... lol

Really the key to know how to advise you is knowing your price range. There are folks on here who consider $800.00 shoes to be not even worth tying and who freely spend $200.00 on ties. There are also folks (most of whom are like me shamed into relative silence) who cannot spend so much and read the wealthier members' posts with appreciative envy.

As an aside, Abercrombie is really run by marketing geniuses. They manufacture clothes with the cheapest fabric possible, damage the cheap fabric further, and then sell it to the consumer at a premium.

lol, I agree 100%. I do not buy the tattered clothes they sell... my daily wear goes through a lot due to my active lifestyle... lol The jeans in the above picture blew out about 2 months ago... they're the most comfortable pair I have. lol I have a huge, filled closet of sport coats and suits... no expensive Italian goods, but they look nice. I guess I'll throw something on and take a few pics. I came here asking the wrong question I suppose... lol I don't know, I just can't find a clothing style that fits my physical look. But thanks to all who have made honest, meaningful posts Pics up shortly!!!

Mike, it would help if you could tell us more about what type of clothes you like -- even if it's just stuff you've seen on other people -- and how dressy you need/want to be.

Please post a picture of you in one of your suits and the forum members will galdly give advice as to fit and whether it's for your body type.

I have an idea stop saying "lol"

Standard newbie speech:

Welcome. Tell us what situations you need clothes for, what your physical dimensions are (jacket size, etc.), what your budget is like, what pieces you already have that you want to keep/continue using, and give some examples of looks you want to try out or that you like (movie examples are good, e.g. Jude Law in Alfie or Will Smith in Hitch, or whatever).

And yeah, sorry, but the 'lol' thing is a bit middle school. Use the smilies instead, they are much more mature.

yeah, lol...
Doc, I like the the style that member Claudio expresses in this picture...


Most of my suits have to be re-tailored due to weight loss... I had blown up like a stuffed pig... After trying on a few of my suits, I decided they were a no-go... didn't fit correctly. I took a picture of what I wore today, posting below.


I know I came into this forum asking a big question... I just don't know how to explain things that well.... because as someone stated, I speak noob. I'll stick around and try to learn some things!

You'll catch on real fast if you do that.

Lose the label and the shades, only button one button on the coat (or none) and IMO the hairstyle... and thats fine.

At least he's showing cuff!

However, I'm not too much a fan of your hair though. Hair wet with gel and styled into a fauxhawk/flat top with front spikes/spikes combo of some kind just says "average single jackass".

The only time you should ever wear that hat in your first pictures is when you're sport fishing. If you never go sport fishing, just burn it.

You look like you're trying too hard in your dressed-up pic. In the interest of constructive criticism, I have to say that you come off as a low-rent, generic Tyler Durden wannabe. Ditch the sunglasses, first of all. They make it look like you're trying too hard to compensate for a lack of confidence in your style.

Style is about using relatively ordinary elements to create a distinctive presence. The key to achieving it is your attitude and level of comfort with what you're wearing. If you're used to jeans and a t-shirt, it may take you a while of experimenting before you find a style that's truly you and doesn't make you look like you're working hard at it.

Good one



At least it seems like you`re reading the forums! Label remaining on sleeve, all buttons are buttoned on suit, suit jacket with jeans, flimsy shirt.

It`s hard to tell exactly though...please post some more pictures so we can give more advise. (by the way, the suit jacket fits you very nicely though)
