I have no... style... - Page 3

post #31 of 83
Oh god.. the label on the sleeve. Why oh why do people do this? I don't care if it's Gucci.. actually if it's a Gucci suit and you leave the label on, you're a label whore with no understanding of quality or true style.

Arghhh.

k, I'm liking this constructive criticism What direction do I need to go with the hair?

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)

Don't laugh at me. It's rude. It was an attempt, as stated. I will post more pics! Criticism taken positively.

Didn't realize the label was such a big no-no! That's why I'm here


I do appreciate all the feedback!!! Keep it coming!

What are you talking about man? We're the most niggardly bunch of sale shoppers this side of Del Boca Vista!

Things like single breasted navy suits, brown and black captoe shoes are items that never go out of style and you can pretty much wear in any professional environment. Also, telling us your budget is a good idea.

Lastly, pay no mind to the posters who act like they were born in Kiton suits or Sugarcane jeans. Getting your style and the appropriate clothing is a journey that will take time.

Well said.

I'm usually in a professional atmosphere... there is no budget. I own my own graphic design firm, so I'm constantly meeting new clients and want to look nice doing so.

I agree with what's said so far. No offence, but it should be common sense not to still have tags on things. As my friend used to joke in Environmental Science back in 11th grade, "Are they going to return that stuff tomorrow?" The jacket actually works on you. You've got the sleeve length down perfect, so make sure your other jackets hit at your wristbone like that. If it's a casual jacket that you'll wear with jeans more often than not, I'll have to say it doesn't matter so much as long as the sleeves aren't too short. (Other members may disagree with me there.) Your shirt sleeves are coming out a little too much though. You should have the buttons resewn so they fit snug around your wrist with just enough comfort room. The ideal amount of shirt cuff to show is 1/4-1/2 an inch. A picture of the pants that go with that jacket would be good, so we can advise on them.

could not agree more. I think that's the critical distinction between one's student years and one's adult life. Why else are you handed that piece of paper on that stage at graduation? "Here, frame this."

Mike - I would also go pinstripes, I think you have the look to wear a lot of colored shirts.

Ed Appleby - my apologies, I was exaggerating a little in an attempt to be more encouraging. Actually, the most valuable piece of advice I've learned on here has been where to find bargains.
That said, all my dress socks, belts, and ties come from TJ Maxx. Yes, I am that cheap. They look great on my ebay-purchased Oxxford and Zegna suits!

Like I said in my previous post, I didn't realize it was supposed to come off. I thought it was supposed to stay on... hell, it's sewn on there! Thanks very much for the useful advice! And there are no pants with the jacket, it was purchased from a men's catalog as a sport coat.

Thanks again for the useful advice I have quite a few flimsy pinstriped shirts...

Shit! Five years in the Ivy League and I missed the whole point of that piece of paper.
