HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 1802  

post #27016 of 78723
^ I think you cop a lot of crap based on your fits but I've always liked the individual pieces you put together, especially the ties and shoes. Maybe you could benefit from a little less waist suppression and pants which are not so tapered, but that's up to the individual. Either way I think your outfits are consistently good.

Well for me the PS makes this outfit sing (along with the tie). A more conservative PS would look good too but this is great.

Well Anden. I agree that your PS makes your last outfit sing (along with the tie). Your outfit fits you as well. There's a thing.

But luminous pink, I think not!! It's loud, and brash, and in your face in an FU kinda way. Definitely no class, or style for that matter.

I work in the fashion industry. That's probably why I can get away with most of these fits lol. I was the only intern that came to work with suits. I was constatnylt mistaken for a High titled employee lol8[1].gif

It may be fashionable to not have your hem set / sewn to the correct length in your jeans by a tailor, but never stylish.
It may also be fashionable to wear jeans with much more formal jacket / shirt / tie / PS, but seldom stylish.
I think that the guys who post on here try to dress stylishly rather than fashionably. So when you try to dress fashionably instead of stylishly, the guys tell you it looks bad, and you call it hate.
I guess I am trying to say that most fashion is not stylish, and never will be, in the same vein, most stylish outfits are not fashionable and never will be.
Also, you may have a beaufitul pair of shoes, or tie, that if assembled into an outfit properly, may become part of a stylish outfit....
where as, incorrectly assembled, well...
for instance, why would you choose a bright pink PS to wear with this conservative outfit, and why would you have your trousers tapered so much that they look like skinny fit jeans. I mean, are you trying to tell everyone that you have matchstick legs. Why don't you just get it over with and have them made skin tight complete with knee bulges then you could look 'real cool', but a bit of an ass fashionwise and not at all stylish.
What are you trying to achieve, skinny fit fashionable formal jean type trousers, or stylish suit trousers.
Your jackets are so short that they don't usually cover your backside or your crotch for that matter, and it is so tight that it splays apart at the front that even if it was long enough, it still wouldn't cover your crotch.
I go on... but i don't think you understand the difference between style and fashion TBH.

excuse my french...

But are you fucking kidding me? facepalm.gif

Your thoughts?

 

Thought #1:  I can never really tell how your jackets fit, because your shoulders and arms are always positioned in funny ways

Thought #2:  When a pair of trousers becomes as slim as yours are, a break turns into a stack.  I think you should shorten the pants.

Thought #3:  Your third picture doesn't depict more drape than the first two, it shows a more sculpted fit and more of a neapolitan tug (which, I think, looks better with your slim pants).

Depending upon who you see about this, it can get quite expensive.

I agree that deanbn's comments were way over the line. Some of what he said was just standard herd-instinct stuff, but some was just opinion masquerading as fact (like the comment on pocket squares). In addition, when considering jacket length, one has to pay attention to whole body proportions not just rely on simple rules. Timotune is slim and short. The combination means that a jacket of what many would consider to be the 'proper' length would look too long for him, especially contempory standards. And yes, standards of jacket length have changed and have not remained eternal over the last two centuries - the fashion and style thing has some merit when you come to outrageously bad dressing (MC Hammer pants for example, or leisure suits), but trying to apply it to force others to conform to narrow generic norms turns it into a cliché. The more 'mod' style of which Timotune's look makes fairly conservative allusions towards, has been around since the early 1960s (that's 50 years now) and shows no sign of going away - how long is it before fashion becomes style? The 'critique' also pays no account of the fact that actually Timotune has been paying a lot of attention to the more constructive feedback he has got here, while at the same time retaining the element of what makes it his look and not just some generic look.
