Brian

You have come to the right place.

JetBlast: Suit looks fine, shirt collar over it though looks bad to me. It carries negative connotations for me and most people here. I don't mind the collar points being unbuttoned without a tie though. I figure if you're casual enough to unbutton the collar, you're casual enough to unbutton the points. Maybe that's just me. But anyways, do put the collar back where it should be. It'll look a whole lot better. The great thing though is that the colour of suit there can be dressed up and down pretty easily, with the right shirts and ties. I don't do flames unless someone flames me first.

I feel as though I am hijacking this thread I understand the shirt is not meant to be used for this obviously, it's a standard Cross dress shirt, but most people that will be seeing the picture don't know the difference anyway. Hey, everyone messes up in terms of what they wear sometimes, right?

Congratulations Jovan on the black outfit and thanks for posting a revealing facial photo. Thus we can appreciate the overall drama you've achieved via the lively interplay of your intense eyes and your polka dotted tie, tugged nonchalantly askew. My; otherwise, the outfit seen without your face might indeed seem a hodgepodge and, as you state, monotonous. You carry it off. Likewise, to my knowledge the skirted cut is part and parcel of a military blazer, and I'm sure you'll be able to play that up with versatility.

Going back to an earlier photo of you recently in a t-shirt with the jacket, I have to say I was quite surprised at how well you carried off that look. You chose to downplay the design on the tee, making an ordinary look seem effortless and intriguing. Quite frankly, because of how you often play the devil's advocate I wasn't expecting such finesse. I mention this because in the comments others made at the time I don't think that aspect of your outfit was given full credit at all.

Now again you've shown that you possess not only the power of the pen, but, what was unexpected to me, a lively sense of visual disportment.

That's a good look, Brian, altogether successful in my viw.

Why? Frankly, if my younger brother came into town for lunch wearing his collars open, unbuttoned, and arranged over his sports jacket, I'd be happy with it and feel he was dressing with a bit of spritz.

After all, the "Romantic" look of poets and musicians is in resurgence today, and you've shown that the look can be achieved by just such a touch without going overboard. It's not right in all situations, but it seems right for you for the moment, and the call of when to go with it is strictly yours.

Just keep the fun in dressing, as you've done here in choosing a sports jacket that illuminates your complexion, and through your own explorations you'll discover most of the tricks of dressing well.

Uh, thanks? I can't tell whether you're serious or not. O.o The coat is actually navy, btw, the camera just doesn't show it well.

Okay.

Rule 1: Dress for yourself and those which you care to surround yourself with. If your dressing comes at the expense of people you care to associate yourself with then its time for a change. If your satisfied, for example, that the Tony Montana look will lead to lasting friendships and a loving girlfriend then by all means follow that path. If it leads to a foray into a Miami drug ring and the constant threat of having your car rigged for explosives...
post #1079 of 1879
Whnay- Yes, some constructive criticism would be appreciated. First of all, I dress for myself. I like Miami Vice-type style, I don't really mind what others think of it, I was just looking for a good opinion from people who know what they are talking about. If you think it looks like Scarface, that is your opinion, however you are the first person I have heard say that. I don't know how you got Tony Montana out of my suit, I'll just ignore those comments. I am not a gang leader or whatever you think, FYI, just because of how I dress.

Brian, for better or worse, that look tends to be quickly attached to a guido-yo mah name is Vinnie-tony montana vibe. but you're 15....this is the time to wear whatever you want and give a fuckall to what anyone else thinks. just do it with gusto
