HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part III - Page 4238  

post #63556 of 78717

Today's ensemble.

 

I appreciate any feedback you have to give, good or bad. After all, thats the main reason I started posting in this thread - to learn. But so far I haven't gotten more than maybe one or two comments in either direction. Thumbs up are very nice to get and all, but not very educating (not meaning you should stop with the thumbs up!!) I am haunted by the comment someone gave the_villain or mikael some pages back, that "most bad fits are just ignored"...

 

Cheers!

Hey, can the old-timers help me out? What was the name of the fashion victim guy that used to post back in the day...the one who wore the suit with the skirt? I need to show it to a new guy.

@ hoodog, I understand why you want fit-feedback, but I think a lot of people (myself included) use this particular thread primarily for inspiration or if they want specific feedback on say, a tie SC combo ask for it. Plus the more input and feed back you give others, the more people are willing to go beyond the "thumbs up" regarding your own outfits - there a so many different posters on here you know smile.gif

Anyway, that aside, I think you look pretty solid today. Hard to make out if there is a slight problem with the shoulder line (right side), and the buttoning point on the SC and the rise on the trousers might be a tad high

Overall this looks good (especially the tie which is drool.gif deets? ). My only substantial comment would be that the buttoning point is on the high side (I know, I know, it's fashionable these days). Although that might work is some cases, here it has the unfortunate effect of pulling the quarters open so that shirt and tie poke though which at least I do not like at all. Also the jacket might be just a tad bit short on you, but that might be more of a personal preference. But the overall effect of the slightly short jacket and high buttoning point is what a tall person like me would look like if I picked a Regular sized jacket instead of a Long. I hope that makes sense?

I flicked through a bit of that, and the standards are generally much higher here all round these days. There's a pretty terrible Barims fit a few pages after that one... I'm left wondering when exactly he worked out what to do.

These are exactly my thoughts as well.

And yes, great tie.

imo, the only way for the robo pose to look good is if your clothing fits impeccably and you are in tip top shape. absent of that, a robo pose does not usually look very good.

fit feedback is supremely important. sorry if you have not got what you needed. i would echo what pinson said and add that to me the armholes look a bit high, like they are cutting into your pits and bunching a little.

the color and texture combinations look great.

imo, without a proper fit, the best combo in the world will look bad. fit feedback may be the most important kind, at least at the beginning, imo.
