i have pet peeves, but i know they are pet peeves, and i dont take points off of someone elses fit because i have a personal peeve with something. things can look great, even if its not something i would ever wear. i think that point is missed on a lot of people, who think, "if i dont like a particular type of thing = looks bad."

You think this is prevalent in clothing circles, try the music world. How many people do you know who claim that [insert genre/artist/whathaveyou] "isn't music"?

It's sad, but the world is filled with small-minded people.

I'm always disappointed when the clothes-minded have closed minds.

+1 In Stitches.

I am very tired of the thought process all too common these days that leads someone to think that since they like vanilla and you like chocolate that your favor to chocolate disrespects and threatens their favor of vanilla.

It is widely accepted to think this way about sports teams but even there it should have limits.

Funny you should mention that, pointy shoes are one of my pet peeves. I know they're generally frowned upon here, but my feet are quite small and pointy shoes make them seem a bit longer, creating better balanced proportions IMO.

 

Love your tumblr by the way, now that's a style that I could never pull off! Very inspiring though.

Sorry, I'm new here. Could someone please explain what's wrong with the jacket's quarters? Thanks!

For you experts out there, this suit has some roping in the shoulder. You can see on the front of the left shoulder that there is some puckering going on. Can't say that I've noticed this before but maybe I missed it. Could it just be a sign that the suit needs to be pressed, or is it just how the arm is attached?
(and yes, I know the quarters are open - the waist needs to be let out - and the button stance is higher than some like)

I will take a stab at this but please wait for the experts to chime in.

The quarters are too open, which would be the case when the jacket is bit tight at the waist and chest areas.

 

If you ask why wide open quarters are an issue, no one wants to see others'  (well at least a man's) crotch.
