What bothers me is that it seems that slowly the thread is turning into any Joe Shmoe finding a suit that may have been laying around or thrifted without proper knowledge of what to buy and posting it here. This is by no means a jab at anyone but if the purpose is to show the fits that truly scream Classic Menswear, it seems that as of late, while we still do get the brilliance of many, there seems to be an ever growing population of people who now post without actually "learning." Take the time and watch others and don't think you can instantly adapt overnight because I would hate to see a forum that I have followed for years and to date only posted one fit (mind you somewhat ill fitting) go down the drain because every guy out there thinks he can don a suit without knowing WTF he's doing.
I actually feel like the last week or so has been way above average.
Your point still stands, though. Generally, folks in this thread are, shall we say, not hesitant to point out flaws. So plenty of the negative reinforcement side. Unfortunately, there has been a lull of positive reinforcement--i.e. "dont do this, do THIS instead". Like I said, things have been much better for the last week or so, let's hope we keep getting strong fits.
People have to learn somewhere, and this is one of the better threads in which to do it.
Not to take this too far into another meta "what is the point of this thread" conversation...
