This is either a real fucking disaster, or a joke.

Matt, nothing you say on this forum about fit and style can be taken seriously after this. This looks like a thrifted Botany 500 suit you ebayed and didn't get tailored. How can you talk so much shit and back it up with this?

People are responding like they've never seen pics of Foo before. That's how he's always looked.

I rather like the style of mafooan. The rather vintage 4 x 1 DB is hard to full off, he had done well and it is no way near to disaster, few criticism

1. Jacket is slightly too short, I guess this is personal because mafoofan is perhaps a little bit short
2. Too aggressive turn ups, for him 1" would be better


Otherwise I don't see how bad is it.....

p.s. yes perhaps he is not tall, but he dress better than the majority of members here.

I agree with this. I haven't been here long enough to understand the social dynamics of what's going on between Mafoofan and half the rest of the forum, but it seems like rather too much of the 'critique' is aimed at his height and is also borderline racist. It seems that in the USA, some people think it's okay to say things about Asians that you rightly wouldn't be able to get away with when talking about African-Americans (for example). Maybe he's annoyed a lot of people over the years and maybe he comes across as arrogant and patronising - and I am certainly no particular fan of his forum persona - but that's no excuse for some of the outright hate on display here.

 

The only things that are wrong with this are that the turn-ups are too big and the button position is maybe an inch too low. That is really it. Otherwise the jacket is almost perfectly fitted. The lapels are classic for this kind of suit and also exactly what's in right now (if that matters). The colour choices and textures are a bit dull for my taste, but they are perfectly acceptable by SF standards, and perhaps exemplary of what many people here seem to want to achieve.

 

I think the Foo hunting season should now be officially closed. From my perspective as a relatively new member, it really does not make this forum look good.

For the sake of comparison, recall how the forum ganged up on Achillus last week. It was pretty ugly as well but...you reap what you sow. Foo's timing with Occupy SF and the picture wasn't probably coincidental. He enjoys being a gadfly and is probably laughing off all the critiques.

I love it. No doubt many will not, but for me, the vibrancy of the coat works with the relatively understated colours of the other pieces, which do however reference some of the colours found in the coat. Shoes are perfect for this combination.

I found that rather disturbing too. And another smaller man as well. I once worked studying monkey for six months, and sometimes the behaviour on this forum is like watching a pack of young male monkeys. The rhetoric might be human but the underlying psychology is just simian sometimes.

 

And I'm sure neither Achillus or Mafoofan do themselves any favours but that still doesn't excuse the mob mentality. We are all responsible for our reactions and they cannot be blamed on someone else.
