Indeed.

These are all terrible. I'll admit that 'for a 16-year old pop sensation' it could be a lot worse, but it is far from "sophisticated and mature".

His clothes fit him well and are not embarrassing articles for the most part. I think "mature" was the wrong word to use, and "sophisticated" lacks the right connotations, but he isn't a walking train wreck like some celebrities. At his worst, he still looks "put together."

The fact that somebody is going out of their way to do do this means that it is indeed more to them than just having a good time dressing up so they should take criticism and decide what to let in one ear and out the other and actually learn from the more constructive criticism. Some people really need to hear the crticism and if it is praise they are after they should just go about their way and impress the average boobs out there who don't know the difference.

Well it depends a lot on the playing field I think. In relative terms, I consider it sophisticated and mature. In no other thread would I reference Bieber besides this one. OP can dress like Vox all he wants, but at 16 years old it just doesn't look appropriate nor is it socially acceptable. I'm not a fan, but JB seems to be a fairly safe style influence for a 16 year old wanting to consistently wear suits, blazers, neckwear, etc.

Look. He's shown a friendly attitude and a willingness to learn. He didn't come here saying he was god's gift to style. I'm not saying his choices and fits are perfect, he's not even saying that. He just sounded to me as being sincere in wanting to get feedback and learn some more. That was my perception at least. What he got back were mostly comments that were more akin to bullying that real genuine help. Again, maybe that wasn't intended but it appears that way to me. He wants to learn and was friendly in going about it. He got dismissed and dogpiled for no good reason I can see.

He is all right for his age...

The OP is not Justin Bieber..

Nobody is criticizing you as a person but be careful wearing mature clothing can make you look affected, geekish or in some very very rare exceptions good if you're uber good looking.

I'm afraid I thought of Airplane reading your post. It 's also how I'd imagine the current British cabinet when they were at school. Neither of these is a good thing.

I am not trying to be cruel and tell people to deal with being mobbed, you obviously don't have to listen to everybody, and I'm not talking just about him. I am talking generally on the forum. If people are so fragile they shouldn't post on discussion forums. It happens a lot that people post their pictures and then just argue when they get any kind of criticsm. It usually happens with these posts that appear to come across as somebody asking for help, or wanting comments, when in-fact they are loopholes to just self-gratification. These are the types of people who get argumentative when their egos aren't stroked.

I was talking about Bieber, not OP. If you found a picture of Bieber with an ill-fitting collar, then ... I couldn't care less, I have nothing invested in him, I just think people on this forum get off way too easily shitting on things for less than good reasons all in the name of conformity and groupthink. Bieber looks fine for who and what he is.

I don't see a picture, and like I said, I don't really care. Oh no, there's at least one photo of one of the most photographed people in the world where he doesn't look impeccable!? Stop the freaking presses.

Let's have a poll Is the OP in need of an ego boost or a good shag? Does he need to do an IQ test on the girl ready to go down on him to check if she is not too dumb? Does he just look like a knob?
