Rudals (just wondered: does that rhyme with "noodles"?), my friend, listen to me:
Stop.
Whining.

i kind of want to plus one this, but not really.

rudals, what i would say instead is as follows:

many people who stumble upon SF, and see fits from people who have been here for a while and have improved their mode of dress, begin to feel worse about how they themselves look/dress.

that is fine and normal, and possibly good. what i would say is, instead of overly bemoaning the fact, try and understand what it is about the fits that you find good that make you think they are good, and derive inspiration and direction from them. continue to cull your wardrobe, have your tailor adjust things to proportions that you think are good, and soon enough, if you keep your eye on the ball, you will dress quite well yourself.

it takes time and effort, but there is no reason it cant be done.

lastly, please do keep in mind, you dont look like shit, you just have work to do to step up your game.

best of luck to you, and thanks for the compliment!

Sorry to get back to this so late.

- French cuff = very formal
- Jeans = very informal

Combining the two makes for an incoherent outfit imo.

Single cuff = very formal
French cuff = less formal
Barrel cuff = casual/American

That said, DC, rock your FCs however you like. I know I do.

How Rudals should step up his game:

 

* stop buying ties at department stores

* branch into striped shirts

* dip a toe into non-white pocket squares

* figure out how to take excellent WAYWRN pictures (invest in tripod or wife)

Oh wow, is that what it sounded like? My pure intention was to give praise to those who kick @ss here. I had no intention on whining.

Great combos on this page. I was waiting for someone to comment on Stitchy's sidewalk chalk graffiti. Very fitting now I know which house is his when I'm in B'more

Wise words. I look at their WAYWRN and try to learn. But I certainly do not feel like $hit...that was just a joke. Man, I can't even joke around here anymore.

* stop buying ties at department stores - Just one more

* branch into striped shirts - Working on it

* dip a toe into non-white pocket squares - You got it

* figure out how to take excellent WAYWRN pictures (invest in tripod or wife) - Too soon for a wife. For my last picture, I used a paper cup to hold my phone/camera.

You forgot one thing. I need to just post WAYWRN and just...keep hush.

Thanks! It is an older Southwick. IIRC, I picked it up for about $17.

Go back in the WAYWRN thread and see how some if great posters in this thread started out. It can be quit instructive to see how their styles evolved over time. I know that I've posted some real train wrecks in this thread. Heck, even Spoo had posted a real stinker or two.

When you do post, learn from the comments, pick up the pieces and try again. It takes a long time to find what works for you. It took me the better part of three years to arrive at a wardrobe that I feel comfortable with. The first year and a half on SF was spent exclusively lurking and reading old threads. It's a true gold mine of sartorial knowledge sitting at you finger tips.
