I'm confused. I love the upper body outfit but the bottom is pretty meh to me (including the belt). Maybe a plain khaki chinos, a pair of brown suede monks and a dark knitted tie would work better as a "business casual" outfit, IMHO.

Thanks! More luck than anything else as I haven't changed any of the settings since the last shot satisfied.gif

Navy DB and grey trousers - so far my favourite daily outfit. It is amazingly versatile.

Obviously, this is not a chunky dude.  But with the belt sitting across the widest portion of his hips (and therefore accentuating that width) instead of anywhere near his natural waist, it's creating a pear-shaped look that isn't a consequence of his actual physique. 

 

I spent a frustrating Saturday past looking for jeans and casual pants, because low-rise rules right now, and every pair I tried on had this very same effect.

The day I find some high-rise, dark indigo jeans (in the perfect cut, natch), I will be a very broke man.

ive expressed my dislike for higher rise pants. My legs i feel are quite long, and when i wear a traditional rise trouser, i feel very odd shaped. Obviously, its not this way for you. But I cant wear something i dont FEEL like i look good in. No matter who disagrees, i just cant get behind traditional rise pants for me. Diaz wears them well..as do a slew of others. but I feel awkward in them.

DerekS, you appear to have some sort of dysmorphia. You should see somebody about that. smile.gif

DerekS, I actually like lower rise pants for the summer, when I'm not wearing a jacket. I think high rise trousers look a bit off if they aren't worn with a jacket, which is perhaps the same feeling you have - they shorten the torso. It's not as noticeable if you're wearing a jacket. Do you take your coat off often?

As soon as I get to work, my jacket comes off.

I have a couple suits with a traditional rise, but one is a 3 piece.

I did. Diagnosis was "narcissistic ass hole with a complete disregard for others"

I think I can see your point then. If you were wearing your jacket all the time, the only difference between low and high rise would be no shirt and tie showing below the jacket button, which is optimal - I don't think your proportions would look any different. But if your jacket is going to be sitting on a hanger for the whole day, then go for the rise you think looks best without it...

 

I think I look ridiculous on my high-rise pants when I'm not wearing a coat, and I do take my coat off at work when I'm at my desk - but comfort wins over potential mockery. If I have to go see somebody, I will put the jacket on anyways.

 

That said, I believe thin dudes like you can pull off both low and high rise. But it's you who has to be comfortable...

Well I guess it works better for some body types than others.  Low rise looks ridiculous on me.

The style of that DB is interesting. To me, it is a very elongating and stylised look; I think this comes from something subtle but uncommon about the angle of the lapels, the button spacing and amount of crossover. It's very good, in a very angular way. Nice one.

 

chocsosa - I'm not a fan of the tie (solid, darker grey or a different pattern silver would be my preference) but the rest of the look is nice. What I really wanted to say, though, is that while I'm not a high-end watch person, the Air King is one of the few Rolex that I've seen that I would like myself. There's something about them that I like. I'd probably wear it a bit more casually - contexts where I'm not full-on casual but not in a suit either - but regardless, it looks good.

 

 

 

Forgot to post today's fit when I replied upthread today...

 

We actually have sunshine today. And it even feels warm enough to be Spring. If this continues, today might be the last day this year that I can wear even a thin turtleneck. But it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make, given the never-ending cold of this winter! I've certainly enjoyed wearing t-necks a lot this winter; they're such versatile items and one fewer shirt each time in the ironing pile at the end of the week is an added bonus.
