If you don't like it, why do people over there spend large sums of money on what appear to be oversized t-shirts with stretched out collars?

As for the jeans, I know that SW&D likes jeans that look more or less like leggings with sagged asses. However, in the interests of brevity...

A bit mean? I'm her for constructive criticism, don't claim to be particularly stylish at the moment (I'm an undergrad, everything comes from ebay/second hand shops), but not sure I appreciate this kind of thing at all.

I'm cleverer than you, and not that impressed or intimidated (honest) by pseudo-pithy internet putdowns. That being said, they doesn't exactly encourage beginners like me to stick at it with SF, and it's probably best for all involved if this site is welcoming to newbies.

Look, fellow-MC'ers, nothing is gained by bashing SW&D.

Putting on some kind of superiority front because you are, on average,
older then them, on average, is still just a front.

Learn from them at what they are good at. In return, some
few of them will want to learn what the MC guys are good at.

The SW&D WAYWT thread is SF's biggest liability (and just plain...mystery). Invariably, noobs are torn to shreds by the five or six assholes who live there, racking up insults, 'till invariably, they lose their cool and call one of the resident trolls a f*ggot. Then the new guy gets banned. You see it over and over and over again....

Pembers,

Don't let the a*holes get you down. There are a few in every crowd.

Stick around and you'll continue to also get good sound advice and feedback.

everybody just take a deep breath....

I think there's a definite place for this thread. It's for all the guys like NOBD, or Gshen, or AceCow, or various shots from Mr.K and NYRanger, etc... ie guys who're dressing often in a khakie+buttonshirt+sportscoat or maybe a polo, jeans, and dress shoes, ie a consistent coherent dressy casual look that's quite different from the SW&D gang. I think that's where the range should be for this, sort of a business or dressy casual look, plus a bit of experimentation (eg what ManOfKent does)

that being said, can we seriously just stop debating the thread and just post+critique?

I got my best fit advice from SW&D a few years ago. WAYWRN guys were too general.

Two different looks from a ways back. I think this balances MC with casual fairly well.

I'm really glad you've found time to post. You're looking great. I just wish we had the weather in SoCal to dress like that.

Do TB's shoes flirt with the dreaded square toe? I ask because I am looking at something similar yet slightly shorter in overall length.

I like this all except for the shoes - it's a take on a saddle that doesn't appeal to me. I think standard saddles would look much nicer.

They don't look too square to me, but I'd prefer weejuns.

The clothes mostly fit (SW&D's obsession with stacking confounds me), and are neatly presented. The colors are well coordinated. It's a nice outfit.
Are you seriously saying that aesthetic appreciation done from a position of ignorance is superior to one done from a position of knowledge? That you cannot gain more insight into something and develop your taste? That is utter falsehood and everyone reading this knows it.
BTW the four people on the picture aren’t even dressed in the same style. Now I’d easily posit that for many people it would be easier to appreciate most/all of these outfits than MC-casual as the codes are, say, better known by young people. On the other hand it doesn’t mean anyone there pulled it off better/worse than someone trying to do a good MC casual look. Sometimes you have to approach things on their own terms. Fact is I am familiar with “MC” aesthetic and various SWD ones which gives me an, at least minimal, angle of approach when viewing most outfits posted here or seen in the street.
