A Daily "Mens Clothing" and "Streetwear and Denim" Fit Comparison Thread - Page 27

post #391 of 486

For MC, high button stance sport jacket and low rise pants leave him with a blue navel triangle which is far less than flattering. The pocket square needs to restrained a bit more. Otherwise it would look far better with more tonal contrast between the trousers and jacket; e.g., a jacket of opposite pattern or light blue check on navy, or charcoal trousers would pull it together. Finally, replacing the surcingle belt with a leather one, would make the sport jacket look far less like an after thought. Navy or even chocolate hopsack blazer with lower button stance probably the best choice to upgrade the outfit with just one fix, otherwise a leather jacket bomber would much better.

 

For SWD. the logo on the T-shirt greatly lowers the sophistication of the look. Black or indigo jeans would have been the better choice as the trousers look like they were the only clean ones around. As above, a leather jacket would crank out the style points, if black were it's color.

 

I see both of these looks all the time, but neither is worth a second glance or remarkable other than they are average looks requiring no thought other than what might be clean at the moment. In fact, that is the message; "before I ran out the door, I grabbed these clothes off the peg".

Thank you. I do miss his old look, but if it makes him happy, good for him.

The somewhat baggy chinos with the cuffs and then the chisel toe shoes just looks odd. The shirt is fine, but the jacket seems to big or the button stance is off or something. maybe its just the awkward pose, but it just looks off.
SWD
Well, I still don't get what makes it special, but it seems to fit better and looks ok.
if I had to pick, id go with sWD

Agreed.

For the truly stupid: not every look chosen is supposed to be great. There are various reasons for choosing the looks that B chooses.

Does this mean SF members are still making mistakes you didn't know could be made?

Jermyn´s pants look pretty bad IMO. This battle goes to hendrix because his stuff fit. Jermyn seems to be wearing one size more on everything.

this, thanks.

I.e. I am both the fool and the wise man.

Just a little bit of context. I can post the same leather jacket-over-jeans-over-boots fit over and over but that's not particularly productive.

I realise this is no longer meant to be a "this" vs "this" thread (otherwise i'd ask that it be withdrawn), so maybe some discussion will be useful - to both myself and others.

Carry on.
