Post a pic.....after spending the last few months living in Paris, I really feel as though the art of looking stylish is pretty simple skinny navy pants or suit, a white shirt, some kind of a scarf, a trench with the belt done up at the back, well polished old brown shoes, usually a gaulloise dangling from lip or hand, hair disheveled, and clothes not quite perfect at all, but to carry yourself with complete self-possession. This has somewhat undermined this thread for me, which aims at getting everything just right, which also is also a cool thing in its own way, but looks very studied and un-French. Right now I am taking the Paris approach .... if one walks with the studied unconcern of a Persian cat entering a crowded salon and keeps the clothes slim and navy, the shirt white and the shoes polished and brown, then everything else takes care of itself, and there are more important things in life (like wine and foie gras) to think about than a millimeter here or there.
Also, although I read this forum a lot and watch this thread in particular, I am always disappointed with how aggressive a lot of the criticism is. If someone has just gone and dropped a grand or more on a new suit and it is a bit too tight or a bit to short or whatever (and I know the warm glow of taking home a new suit), there are more polite ways of letting them know about this deficiency than some of the know-it-all jackal feasts that I have read on this thread which probably leave them looking at that suit or jacket and feeling as though they have just wasted their money on something unwearable and feeling worthless. I feel sorry for those guys, I wouldn't speak to my worst enemy that way, let alone some poor sap who is trying to develop style and taste in a collegiate atmosphere.
I come here to learn, to take inspiration from a lot of what is posted here, rather than speak, if that means I haven't posted 11,480 times in six years so be it. This learning experience is a lot easier if threads remain reasonably on topic, especially because this marriage debate is rather pointless and will ultimately come down to personal preference.
so where's your fit pic?
