Calm down dear it's only a message board.

No, but it certainly helps establish if your critiques are valid, or you are clueless. Frankly, I am weary of people coming in here and doing nothing more than posting critique, good or bad.

Further, you are a particularly opinionated and nasty critic. When someone takes that approach, I think they need to have something in which to back up their critique. You have nothing.

Telling Crusty to stop posting is just an example of your trademark style. The fact of the matter is that this thread is on life support, and needs quality posters. Crusty's style may not be my style, or yours for that matter, but telling him to stop posting is counterproductive. Equally as counterproductive is attacking an old poster who is dipping his feet in the water again.

- we either need to be more selective of what is posted in this thread or not complain when it gets bashed.

You don't have to post every day especially when (each to his own, but IMO) your pics have become so painfully predictable and boring. Boxy shiny suit, baroque tie/PS, unnecessarily verbose and self deprecating preamble ... rinse and repeat. Why not take a break for a while or pick your best couple of fits from a week and post them?

Nii's disclaimer applies here too.

I disagree. It's nice to see things that don't work here and discuss why they don't. Even the best-dressed have off days (see e.g. Spoo's suit today [sorry Spoo]).

One can learn more from mistakes than from successess, as trite as that sounds - for example, most of my posts here in WAYWRN.

No need to apologize to me, as I mentioned - I know the fit is off on my jacket. But +1 on learning more from mistakes than successes - when one provides the feedback constructively of course.

Spoozy: Consider me a fan. You have an obvious flair for coordination and damn good taste.

JasonMarshal: I like your style. Never the same old accessories or combinations. Another man with a great eye for coordinating color/patterns and texture.

Well done gentlemen!

And members posting the misses that they KNOW are misses are helpful for the forum to explain why. This why I think that Upr_C posting (or you, or anyone else) when he knows it's a miss is just fine.

We can learn from mistakes that we might have thought OK when we threw them on in the morning.

of course we can ... and rightly should. however this is a case where UC self-admittedly said the fit was terrible and then posted anyways.

i'd be interested to know where the edification lies in knowing that your fit is bad and still posting it.

Cold and foggy May in Shakeytown. Fuzzy flannel-mohair keeping me warm.

Probably the last outing for this suit. After being told repeatedly here that the jacket is too short on me, I've finally realized you're all right.

I think this is a case of you responding to your perception of me the poster and not my post. You will notice if you can be bothered to look back that the one fella I complimented the rest of his outfit, glasses aside. I have also complimented Crusty several times in the past. I am no fan of facial hair and may have been the first to suggest he lose the beard, when he did he was met with almost universal praise including from me, and I make a point of trying to compliment other good posters/pics too among what you call my 'nasty' critiques.

I don't post pics for numerous reasons, including being technologically inefficient (don't even have an avatar), not having decent camera, light, scenery, photographer etc. plus I think I clean up OK but as much as I enjoy perusing this thread I know my personal style won't be admired my many on here and I don't feel the need to solicit comments from strangers. For those who do it's gotta be fair game surely? As with anything on the internet, its easy to ignore if you dont like it. You and others may not appreciate my personal idiom but I'd be willing to bet I offer praise at least as much as I do criticism and I also try to offer advice and answers, for what they may be worth, on other threads, something I think if a lot more SF veterans did likewise would contribute to the value and wealth of knowledge/education on the board.

I might not have been clear but I didn't suggest anyone stop posting period, just stop posting every day.
