They're not trousers, they're jeans.

wrong x 2

jacket is not a SC and should not be short, sleeves should be a little long, and the stacking on the JEANS looks great.

well done, synth.

he was serious. and he is right.

regarding your fit, the jacket looks boxy and do not shorten the jeans imo.

Stitchy -

 

I agree with the assessment on the fit (shoulders should maybe be soft and the pants are perfect) but was wondering if you could educate me on the differences of what lengths a sportscoat/blazer/jacket/suit should be? The differences. I always thought they all fit about the same. Need to know since I'm ordering so many soon!!

 

ETA on fit assessment: Those look like roped shoulders. Should jackets and sportscoats almost always be just soft shoulders?

 

Thanks!

Stitchy, one cannot be "wrong" about this. If you like the stacked jeans, great. If not, also great. The jacket's sleeve length is also subjective. Synthese looks good here, but for MC casual, JapanAlex's suggestions on the jeans and jacket sleeve are on point.

(This is the second time I've agreed with JapanAlex this year. Trust me, I'm seeking professional help for this.)

Why does everyone distrust me, hahaha?

I expected so much more from the master nitpicker.

I feel betrayed.

Great jacket, Synth.

well, i am no expert, but imo, the more casual a garment, the more leeway there is in terms of length, both long and short. SWD understands this very well. MC, not so much. to MCs detriment imho.

had synth been wearing a more formal SC/blazer or suit i would agree the sleeves look bad, but he is wearing a very casual jacket that imo would look contrived if it fit as exactingly as a formal jacket.

as to shoulders, really depends on a persons build. some people need padding. other do not.

OH NOES!! NOW YOU ARE ALSO WRONG!!!!!

yes, not everyone has to like stack, but that does not mean synth needs to tailor his pants. it just means he likes stacks on those jeans, and other do not. i do not think that makes JAs comment on point, it just means he does not like stacks.

"why-did-you-buy-trousers-too-long bunching" is wrong. "i dont like stacks" is ok. but thats ok, we all know im a bitch when it comes to semantics of critiques.

jacket length, as i said above, i think that jacket would look contrived if it was shorter.

just my (very correct wink.gif ) opinion.

I wasn't agreeing with how he said it, just that it was a legitimate critique from the MC perspective.

ahhhh, much better then. smile.gif

i still think the fit was spot on for what he was trying to do. MC could use to be a lil more open minded in what looks good sometimes. i think you could agree to that after some of your experiences, no?

The critiques of my casual have been all over the place. I'm not sure one can say if that's an uptight MC thing or a result of the lack of definition of MC casual. I suspect it's the latter. Like I said, I think Synthese put together a nice outfit, but I don't think it has much to do with MC. This is true of a fair number of posts in this thread, and I think that's the result of folks' not wanting to wade into SW&D who want some feedback on their non-suit-and-tie stuff. I followed WAYWT for a couple of months and saw lots of stuff I think looks good, but mostly not and certainly very little that I would want to wear given my age and milieu.

The Jacket looks a bit too long and boxy for that fit IMO. Is it vintage? Everything else looks great and I think the jeans look really good as is.

i was referring to your regular MC brouhahahs, such as in the good taste thread. and imo its a result of MCs rigidity in certain regards. and btw, sometimes, i think that rigidity is very important.

while synths outfit was certainly more SWD geared, he is an SWDer after all, i think that if fits like that were viewed with a little more openness, a lot could be gained. he is not someone who is afraid to go to SWD, he is a SWD guy. he was posting here to share a fit, and presumably, to see how it was received here.

i think in the casual area SWD crushes MC, and not just in stuff that you would consider out of your milieu.
