That is way too in focus to be you.

Is it that cold where you are already? Yikes. Anyway, the coat is really nice, but the fit seems a little off unless you're standing a bit awkwardly. Looks as if the balance is a bit off, perhaps?

 

 

 

Surprisingly Busy Sunday:

The trousers look a bit wide in the pics, but are actually one of my slimmer pairs... they don't fall as cleanly as they should though, which is why they never look great, esp. in static photos. One day I'll get a properly fitting pair of light brown flannels but for now, they'll do.

No the fit is realy good. It´s hard for me to stand relaxed when I make the photos. It´s not that cold, but I get some PMs with questions about the coat and today is with 15°C the coldest day in the week. And I want to try the new tweed/deer leather gloves and the shawl I get this week. For the 5 minutes of photoshooting it was ok and after without the gloves/shawl and only with a shirt under the coat I sweat not much.

Please burn the lunchbox. ;) 

 

On a less snarky note, heavily branded pieces--as in, the brand was made deliberately obvious--are not well received here. Tacky and gauche. If you are really set on owning LV briefcases, might I suggest something along the lines of:

Mr, that lunchbox is born for hating on. :devil: 

 

Heavily branded items like that scream "hey, look what I can afford" and suggest that the owner purchased it for that purpose rather than for reasons related to aesthetic or quality. That may not be the case with you, but that's the vibe it gives off.

 

If the goal is to look expensive--and there isn't anything wrong with that as a goal--I'd posit that the most elegant form of that goal would be: look expensive while also appearing not to care how expensive one looks.

 

Edit: props for being a good sport about it

I have not posted on this forum in a while. This is my own contribution. Although, I don't know what the photo limit is on this forum. Sorry for the copious pictures. I took different poses as each pose will help bring out the best of my outfit. Feel free to pinpoint anything in the photo that needs amendment. smile.gif

While obviously not in keeping with the general consensus of SF taste, this is aesthetically coherent and well-executed from a certain point of view. In other words, "tacky/gauche" as it might be, I find it less offensive than a lot of the misguided attempts at aping "classic" dress that get a free pass here.
