Your looks have consistently improved and I don't want this to come across as overly critical.
It could be phone camera/angle/size of mirror in this pic, but I swear those pants look like you're wearing tights that are a size or two too big.... I have no idea what size shoe you wear, but they look absolutely enormous on the end of the that tiny leg opening (the fact that it's not the most attractive shoe, as many, many, many have mentioned, aside). And, to be honest, most of the pants I've seen you wear seem too skinny at the leg opening for your large-ish feet/shoes.
I really like the style of the sweater, but I feel it may be a skosh too small (probably not a even full size). You can clearly see a line of demarcation along the top of your pants; it's also a bit tight around your pecs. Maybe a tight undershirt could alleviate the pecs issue.
But, otherwise, kudos to you for making a conscious effort to improve your style and having the balls,
Agreed that tassel loafers aren't the answer. Second on the longwing.
Thank you :)
I think its about half camera angle, they're actually a bit looser than my epaulets (not much) but they're a very thick llama/wool blend that kind of stands to attention by itself. Re: my clarks, they're size 11 or 11.5, I do have clownfeet and the DB's definitely don't help with that. The pants issue is probably correct, though they usually look better with my less ugly shoes.
Re: sweater, I'm a far cry from jacked, but if you look at my more casual fits, the disparity between my chest and waist is so pronounced I'm either squeaking in the moobs or flapping over the flanks, I usually try to aim for some kind of middle ground, but with stuff that can't be easily tailored (esp. knitwear) I don't generally have a good option. also, I'm wearing one of my particularly ludicrously huge belts, which I probably could have foregone today.
I have longwings with me, they're just not particularly warm, and they're a pain if you're walking a lot. I know my shoes get more shit than kappelan's crocs, but it really is an issue of comfort and practicality. I'd like some other kind of shoe that's comfy, and somewhat more casual than the longwings, if you think penny loafers or something else might suit me better I'd love a suggestion, I think my posts are proof that I probably shouldn't be allowed to dress myself.
Thank you for a truly helpful post :)
