What does the guys size have to do with proper snatch technique?

What does snatch technique have to do with anything at all?!  Pff...I give up!

Victor and I are almost identically sized (I am in inch taller, he is about five pounds heavier). Where we differ is in the quality of our tailors (I am off the rack, and Victor is obviously not).

I am also a crossfit instructor, and thus feel qualified to critique an admittedly stronger man's form.

I reckon on this course we're about three posts away from comparing penis size.

 

Would anyone rather get this back to the serious issues of socks versus socklessness, whether one's collar points must be covered, and other such matters of import?  I know I really would.

Good idea, there's no reason to discuss my wooly two inches.

Stop whining and just ignore posts that don't interest you.  Christ.

Was starting to wonder if this was a humour-free zone.  Thanks for the reassurance biggrin.gif

OK, but you can call me "Al". xx

Some from a few weekends back, taken in a 1790 house, currently a nice antique/curio shop.  Standard apology for the shitty iPhone quality pics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

My contribution to getting us back on track, fire away.

Praise God.

 

Like that petrol-coloured (cotton/linen?) jacket with the jeans, and the clean pocket square.  Lovely weekend look with the burgundy pennies: although I remain a committed sock-ist, if you're going to go nekked, this is the context to do it!  I'd go smaller with the check, personally, but I imagine the overall effect is very pleasing.  Jolly good.  And not a body part calibration in sight.  Splendid!

OK, so on the important sock questions. I (like mimo/Christ/Al) am a committed sockist - at least inside the shoe. I would like to get the sockless look, however. (I am a true poseur.)

Banana Republic loafer socks are fine in, say, low cut Chucks, but they still show when I wear them with actual loafers (so I don't). Who can suggest something lower? (I've seen praise for Falke, but can't tell if they are actually lower.)

Yes, he is a well dressed man.
Yes, I do enjoy his boundless wardrobe just as much as everybody else in this forum.
Yes, I do like him because he is commited enough to overcome his given language barrier and communicate with us through a translator and especially because he takes time to comment/thumb up on other peoples' outfits and also because he generally comes off as a nice guy.
Yet, if he wouldn't be an obviously well off Russian businessman that made friends with his tailor that closely that he is actually photographed professionally by him on a daily basis, all off you wouldn't be as heads over heels for him as you are right now.
Looking at his outfits, there are several things which even a small timer and forum noob like myself is able to observe:
Unusual and unflattering wrinkles around most of his jackets' shoulders, shirt collars that don't reach under his jacket, wrinkles around his jackets' buttoning points, sometimes at least subjectively clashing colors or at least pairings which, to put it with words of Manton, make the outfit look 'washed out', poverty of contrast due to lack of different visible/distinguishable patterns/textures, spreez like unbuttoned sleeve buttons etc.
Everybody but Victor would get shit or ignorance for details like that, yet even people who post just as regulary and with at least as much taste, think ColdEyedPugilist, upr_crust, NOBD and Spoo, need to rock an impeccable outfit to receive at best half as much thumb ups as Victor gets for every single entry.
Members who try just as hard but simply don't have as great means not even taken into consideration.
Guys, I appeal to all of you not to apply double standards to single members!
Don't let this forum turn into a stage of only very few high gloss posterboys which are admired without sceptisism.
Notice the small guys as well, give them praise for when they improve or do things right, we can learn from it just as much and it would make this forum a more diverse and overall nicer place.


I'm going to go the opposite direction and say we kill Victor. I'll split his wardrobe with anybody providing alibis, allocating his stuff according to the strength of your testimony.

Victor, your outfits are to die for. You, me, small innocent children playing in the park.

 

It probably helps that his photographs are of fantastic quality. Victor, what lens do you generally use? Judging by depth of field at various ranges I'd say 35mm, but I know less about photography than about fashion.

I've heard of these invisible socks, but my objection is as much sartorial as hygienic - I've never looked for them so I can't really help.  I will continue to wear over the calf socks with my loafers to balance out your little ones. :)

Thank you, its a BB tropical weight wool orphan.

As to the great sock debate, this is the only time its OK, IMO.
