Women (like men) don't know what they want.

It's like some insecure men say "Oh I like the shy nerdy type" when really we know they're attracted to the hot slut who intimidates them because she's not shy.

Those pics are from ads, magazines, etc. Most of the time if you wear that sort of stuff IRL you are going to look bland/geeky or really flamboyantly preppy.

Some of this stuff is horrible (e.g. this) and would qualify for "stuff that would make me reconsider my girlfriends taste in everything".

BTW Hendrix, I really do prefer the nerdy type (how fun is a girl you can't watch LOTR with?). Shyness is kinda boring though.

Alright ladies, alright. Big bad Rambo's going to lay off you and your shitty fits, lest I get buried under the collective weight of all your tampons.

True. But still, I think getting this perspective provides a good check against some of the i-gent groupthink that develops in these places. I've been mostly lurking here for around 2 years, soaking up information and getting tips and refining how I dress. But every once in a while I have one of those moments of panic where I think maybe, just maybe, I've been listening to a bunch of guys who just talk to themselves over and over and develop a sense of "rules" and what looks good that has little overlap with what looks good in reality. I had one of those moments recently when I was sitting in church behind a 30ish guy done up to the nines. Expensive jacket, pocket square, four in hand knot, perfect break in the pants, kicking walnut shoes. He looked like he was dressed by a SF committee. And yet, it just looked totally off. It didn't work.

TL; DR: I dig the chicks opinions.

Some things that MC likes I can imagine would be a complete turn off.

In the end though, everyone has different perspectives on what looks good, what is sexy, what isn't.

If I was totally concerned with what turns girls on I wouldn't wear:
anything with broguing
anything brown
anything tweed
any pocketsquares
etc etc.

I'd just go around every day in leather jacket, slim jeans, and zip boots.

In the end, personal style is more important and attractive in it's own right.

First of all, I hardly ever comment on your posts. Your last few haven't worked. Is it a crime that I pointed it out? Are you bitching to the others that have agreed with me? Instead of thinking that I'm so mean, why not listen to what I'm saying and change some things up?

I don't post pics. I wouldn't want to be responsible for the millions in computer damage that would occur from having my face on a computer monitor.

I don't post pics. Nobody wants to see my ugly mug anyway. If you don't want people to post about your "style" (and that's a highly subjective term here) then don't post up any pictures. Otherwise, shut the fuck up about it. Not everyone's going to like your ridiculous fashion choices. Again, I don't comment on most of your posts. Only the particularly egregious ones.

Fair enough. I've been sick as a fucking dog the past two days. So in between bouts of anal leakage, I comment on men's pictures on the internet. It soothes me.

IMO, critiques need to understand the context of the outfit and wearer - and if they don't, they fail and are a waste of everyone's time. Like acecow's (and to some extent Rambo's) forays into SW&D WAYWT with useless attacks - yes, drop crotch pants will have a rise that's "too long" for someone who doesn't approve of that style, that's the point alright... and there's little point in this kind of comments. If you don't understand or subscribe to an aesthetic or style, why waste your time? I don't go on fedora lounge posting "WTF? who wears top hats nowadays?!". Some people are just very reactionary when it comes to style - these are not the ones I want to read constant disapproval from. I'd much prefer reading disapproval and useful critiques from those who know what they're talking about and can modulate their comments within the overall context of the fits.

You and I are very different in this respect but I find it odd that you paint me as reactionary. While I'm certainly more brash and acerbic than you, I wouldn't call my comments reactionary. Its hard to tell someone what does and doesn't work when they're wearing pants that have a crotch down to their knees. While I obviously DO NOT understand certain current fashion trends (drop crotch and overly baggy being just two of the many eye sores currently floating around on the forum), I do not go in and shit on every post. In fact, I go in to try and observe, learn, and understand. Sometimes, like with the guy who wore a short sleeve shirt, shorts, loafers, AND A FUCKING BOW TIE, its just not possible. Those I'll point out. I don't comment on a good 90% of the posts in here either, unless I see something that's just slightly off or doesn't work. Color matching, sizing, etc.. Often, people end up agreeing with me. Miraculous, I know. Now if you want me to be all touchy fucking feely about it, well I've got some land in the everglades that you might be interested in investing in. Some people will like me, some won't. Period.

Ok, now that that's done, onto the business at hand: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Crockett-n-Jawnz tassle loafers not quite as swanky as cheetah mocs. but I've got Pitti hair.

Jesus christ, I wish I could pull off the effortless cool look that you do so well. I think I'd be unstoppable.

Gotta agree with sugarbutch on that one IST. Maybe without the tie and a plain light blue shirt?
Not a fan of ties with jeans. That jacket does however go really well with the jeans
I'm wearing an old jacket (10+ y)I still have from secondary school. We had a liberal dress code (SC+tie) rather than a uniform.

Corneliani
Mastai Ferretti
H&M
Edward Green


The lighting is really throwing me. The top and bottom outfits look slightly different. Are the pants beige or white? Is the shirt pink or purple?

Pink and off-white. The second picture in the spoiler shows the colours best.

This is true. For some fairly embarrassing and shameful reasons I have occasion to wear an outfit like this:

Silver skinny fit jacket
White shirt
Skinny black tie
Skinny black trousers (polly blend!)
Black boots.

Outside of the fact the outfit is part of a uniform that earns me more money than I can do without, I get hit on ALL THE TIME. Over the years I've been proud of the fact I dress like a traditionalist/prep, chinos, nice cashmere jackets, decent shoes and maybe get hit on once every 6 weeks. The one day a week I wear the uniform and I get hit on at least 3 times in the day.

I admit here, in public, that it takes more than a little willpower to stick with my more conservative way of dress knowing that there are certain advantages in dressing like a douche.

yup, like I said before, girls don't know what they like.

I turn up to a party in my moto jacket and zip boots and a guarantee 90% of girls will want to suck my dick more than some preppy idiot with a matching belt and red pocketsquare.

They may say "Ooh his belt and pocketsquare are so well coordinated, I wish my BF dressed like that", but I'd be the one that they'd actually like, without them even noticing it.

sometimes MC does remind me of that guy in "She's gotta have it" who's getting with this crazy great girl, but stops to fold his clothes just right as he takes off each item .
