1. they can use a mirror to take a good quality selfie...or use a webcam...as most laptops have very high quality cameras built in already....or any other number of ways that are easily acceptable to just about every person living in or around a metropolis anywhere on the planet....this seems to me to just be an excuse.
98.753% of pics taken in mirrors and webcams suck. they are generally useless for judging fit. not to mention that in the mirror case that requires holding the camera which also often throws things off. long story short, taking a picture of yourself will rarely end in a successful representation of how you look
i agree that people who are learning would be better served with full fit pics, but i cant begrudge them for not taking them. its their loss, not anyone elses. as to long standing members, they almost always have a decent reason for not posting full pics. usually because they have been there done that and dont have the time or incentive to do so anymore, and im just happy when they post at all. id rather a gdl close up or two than none at all.
generally, people who are pros have proper fit and most of the critiques i see on their fits, especially by n00bs, are cringe worthy. im often not surprised when people just stop posting their fits entirely after the asshattery they endure from nitwits and uneducated johnny come lately's.
i guess you will have to take my word for it. and the fact i have not held back a full pic in years.
moral of the story is this. i agree, i wish everyone could take awesome pro quality full length fit pics. but lets face it, that is not the reality. not everyone can or wants to. i would rather post a block shot than an ill representing fit pic. it saves everyone time cuz the convo almost always goes like this.
- X is off
- no, thats the angle
- I SWEAR ITS THE ANGLE!!!!
somtimes its the angle sometimes it an excuse, either way its tiring and annoying.
so, if a n00b does not post a full pic and he never learns proper fit, his loss not mine. no sweat.
if a pro does not post a full i will assume its right, especially if he has proven he understands fit, and especially if he has actually posted in that suit/jacket/trou 10 times before and i know it fits. again, no sweat.
id love full pics, but im not about to get mad when people dont post them. its their prerogative.
