SNS Herning stark? Been popular since last winter at least, it is a nice, thick sweater and the SNS herning label gives buyers that "authentic" feeling they crave. I own another SNS model and must say it is quite an attractive option when it is quite cold, otherwise not so much.

Welcome to SF.

well then you will just love this sweater then wink.gif

i know every piece of this fit is non-SF approved. however, at work i dress a certain way for a reason. i am posting this only for feedback regarding fit, not if people like giant polo ponies and numbers, true relion jeans and beat up shoes. i know the answer to that already. so what i am asking is, compared to the last pic i posted would you say these items fit me better?

NOBD in particular has the SNS Herring Stark, APCs, and suede shoes.

I like the SF SW&D uniforms, they have a clean denim minimalism. Let's see if I can list the SW&D uniforms:
1) blue OCBD, SF+5ep, desert boots, filson bag
2) Herning Stark, APC, suede shoes
3) ToJ leather, tshirt, raw denim, boots

The SNS Herning stark I don't think I've ever seen to look bad. I've been eyeing the North Sea Expedition sweat shirt, similar in spirit.

Yes, but start ground level, working your way up, improving each piece of clothing.

Agreed. These jeans fit better than the other pair, but need to be hemmed. Sweater fit is good.

I saw a guy wearing a similar look the other day in Dallas (with weather in the 70's F or low to mid 20's C), which looked completely affected.

Though I suspect the temperature where you are is much cooler, I still fnd the bulky scarf with lightweight jacket a bit affected. IMO, either it's cold enough to wear a scarf and heavy coat or it isn't. From a purely aesthetic perspective, I think a bulky scarf with a short jacket makes the look quite top-heavy. I think a longer jacket creates a better visual line that minimizes that top-heavy effect caused by the scarf.

All that said. I do like both the jacket and the scarf, just not together.

A suede jacket like this is heavier than you expect. Not melton wool heavy, but it's not quite cotton.  I think your viewpoint about jacket lengths may be a geographical bias. These jackets are legion in southern Europe.  I wear this sort of jacket often with a scarf, and I think it looks smashing.  I think it may have something to do with the gingham and purple in Banis' scarf that makes it seem a little "weird."  But the scarf doesn't look heavyweight either.  This style of jacket is perfect with a light- to medium-weight scarf and the inclusion of such elevates the look above a generic autumn style.  It's a classic look.  (I even saved Banis' pic for my archives, if that tells you anything.)

I am not crazy about that exact look, but a scarf looks good with that style of shorter jacket.

Aeglus looks good per usual. Does MC disapprove of his non CBD hairstyle? Just curious.

I'm not quite sure what that face means. As far as his hair is concerned I've seen his pictures appear elsewhere followed by "lol"s and other not so approving comments. To me it looks a bit try-hard GQish but that seems to be what he's going for...

I've never thought he's found the right cut for him, but it is always more interesting than the businessman's cut many in MC sport.

It's probably one of the reasons I like gnatty's fits, the fact that he has non-standard hair.

Probably a fair statement. I've come around on the shorter jackets, which one really doesn't see much around Dallas. Maybe my acceptance of a scarves with them will follow.

Good points, all. I realize it's a lightweight scarf. I think my viewpoint on jackets/scarves is very skewed since I live in an area where jackets are necessary for about three months and scarves for one month each year. As warm-natured as I am, I just can't use a scarf as a fashion accessory unless it's serving its function as an extra layer of warmth when it's very cold outside.

I think that James Dean thing would only fly in South Korea, but I am in full agreement that the cropped cut 99% of the posters sport is utterly boring -- and in many cases a deficit.  In some lines of work there's no getting away with anything else, but in many cases it seems like, despite a willingness to wear bold threads, the hair is the point of least flexibility.  Strange.

Not to worry -- we will have you wearing fucshia pants soon enough.
