- nope. i do not like zero break. i think it looks odd when i look down and its like i am expecting a flood. i know its the fave here, but its not for everyone. the break on these is quite minimal, and i like it.
- do not agree about shoes
- i think its the way my arms are bent, the sleeves are fine i am pretty sure.
- maybe, but i chose this shirt for a reason. as well, i chose blue pants instead of gray ones. essentially, you are saying, i should have worn a different outfit. had i wanted to wear gray pants and a blue shirt with this SC, i would have. i chose a different route, that i think is fine. also, the pants are creased, i think the shadow is hiding that.
i dont mean to sound dismissive, i have taken a good amount of constructive criticism, and i think i take it well. i just do not agree on this occasion.

You and Teger both have good points. Clothes are so much about personal taste. Like you, I definitely like some break in my pants. It's not perfect, but so what. It's still damn good and better than 99.99% of men on the street.

if you want to have break, that's fine, but you shouldn't wear pants with such a narrow hem with a shoe with such an elongated last -- it makes you look disproportionate.

It is an older, beloved sweater and the chinos are just a knock about old pair. Just trying to keep warm in the nippy wind. Maybe I was dressed up just a little because I was meeting a friend at Starbucks as soon as I finished raking the lawn.

gdl's foofed version is so much better, Stitchy. But I see that you are resistant to the demonstrative powers of the Photoshop. First my Check Scale Comparator™, now gdl's Sartorial Hue Modificator™...

interesting. but tbh, i dont really get that specific when i buy things, as to purchase pants based on weather or not the opening is 7.5 or 8.5 inches. if i were a bespoke customer, probably, but right now, i think i am making plenty of improvement, things that are that nit-picky can wait. for now i focus more on making sure that items i buy are useful, and with a purpose of achieving a specific aesthetic.

i do appreciate all your help, and look forward to you continued help. thanks!

do you buy shirts with the correct neck measurement? or pants with the correct waist size? it's the same thing. the reason you paid extra to buy those pants are opposed to a pair from the gap is because of the particular details of that pair (fabric, fit, etc) -- you should pay attention to those things, because it's what you're paying for.

just for argument's sake - do you have a pair of pleated khaki chinos with cuffs? and a plain blue shirt? if so try the outfit again. promise you it'll look 100x better.

That was in response to the measurement you cited for your sleeves. I'm only two inches shorter than you, but my sleeve measurement is 8" shorter than what you called out.

while you do make a point, picking correct neck and waist size is easily done, and with the waist, you can even adjust it. you generally cant pick the hem opening on your pants. i can go to j crew and pick whatever size i want with the model pants i want, even smaller places like STF usually have a selection of a few sizes with a particular item. but things like leg opening, and exact chest measurement are not that easily chosen.

if the pants/shirt i want "fits," as in, it is my size, and the measurements are 98% right, i cant really say, no ill pass because the leg opening is half an inch too big. at that point i really dont care. if that means my fit wont be as perfect as it could be, and i wont be SFs dandy. i think i can live with that right now.

for example, earlier fits, i wasnt so happy with, i knew something was off, i got advise, and that helped. the fit i posted today, i was really happy with it. were there points people made that maybe could have made it bette? yes. but i looked at and said, i like that. the goal imo, is to be happy. im not saying that i feel i have no room to improve, i am saying that i can look at my improvement, and be happy with the way i look. if all thats left is that my pants were a half inch off here, and a blue shirt might have better, or gray pants might have better... i think i have come along way from, dude, that whole thing is just off.

i have no dress khakis, nor do i think i want any, not the look i am aiming for. also, i do not do pleats right now. they always seem to look open. and i have given up. no matter how i alter them, they never lay flat. maybe its because i have wide hips, or because my undershirt and tzitzis bunched up cause them to push open. either way, they look horrible.

still, i will try a blue shirt next time. smile.gif

again, thanks for taking the time to help. i do appreciate it, and think it over. sometimes i even disagree at first, and later come to agree.
