F.C.

If you go back and edit the size by doubling the values of the width and height, you'll get larger pics for people to see more detail (if desired).

htp://www.styleforum.net/image/id/1461682/width/700/height/554 instead of htp://www.styleforum.net/image/id/1461682/width/350/height/277

If you simply click each pic, you should get the full size version "slide show" pop-up as long as you are using a browser that renders DHTML adequately (this should be nearly everyone these days, even those who live in Mongolia.)

Being a certain width, it does not matter how large the images are since Huddler will reformat them on the page based on their positions relative to the member bio and ad columns. By just letting the SF image hosting defaults to work, I don't have to worry about resizing these images each time I post them.

It's already more work than you schmucks put into your posts, so I allow me to minimize the effort, where I can, that I devote my amusements.

Are those Cargo pants? A pocket square but no tie?

Win for aether
Don't like short sleeve shirts or vests but, to honor the SWD aesthetic:

I think the high water pants are the right choice for the short sleeve shirt.
I like the watch and bracelet on the wrists -- that seems to mitigate visual disconnect of the boney arms jutting out from the half sleeves The trousers fit

IMO, both are fine casual looks. I've never really gotten the whole jean stacking thing so I definitely prefer furo's cuffed look. Parker's white plimsolls are classic, but the furo's Indy boots are great! The reddish tones in the boot almost make him look like he tried to match his shirt to the boots, which is odd, but I'll give the nod to furo just for the jeans and boots alone.

You like clunky orthopedic workboots better than a simple pair of white trainers?

Agreed. MC's love affair with giant, goofy boots is a mystery to me.

giant goofy orthopedic boots not found
post #102 of 486
those aldens are weird. the contrast stitching is not too appealing to me. i don't care for massive cuffs. red shirt isn't contrasting enough with the rest of the outfit.peacocking pose is awkward. parker would win by default i think, but it's just a lot cleaner, the sneakers are great (slim raf , it would seem, plain white is best, plain black too, then tricky but some others can be great), white tee adds nice contrast, and the aggressive [rick] leather just blends into the outfit.

that said, i wouldn't mind the aldens to go hiking in biggrin.gif

Sheesh everything that Shah said- +1. The leather fit by a mile.

Furo's is just classic MC-casual, which is dreadful. (MC-Casual will change! It's getting better, not least because Furo is giving it a shot) I dislike the cuffs, I hate the contrast stiching reddish boots, the red tshirt is supposed to be pop but really is just there, and the jacket.... the jacket is the only thing that gives cohesion, but it isn't interesting. It's the look of a MC'er trying to be casual.

Whereas Paker's is minimal; the look of a MCer who is casual. The tshirt and shoes look like they pop when you're staring at the photo, but since it's white, in real life they would be nearly invisible.

Plus, Parker has a head.

This is a no contest. This was a epic beatdown. Parker (a crossposter, btw) has gotten this right. There are terrific colorblocking elements, the proportions for everything work, and it's a very coherent outfit. It also has great references to early 80s punk outfits, without being nostalgic or overly referential. It's overall, a very clean outfit. A lot of MC guys could learn from this. You could even substitute the sneakers from some off white chukkas or beige sneakers, or something more acceptable to you, though I'd advise caution.

Furo's outfit is muddied, to be charitable. It's like he tried to do a heritage thing, but didn't far enough to make it work. The workboots are fine, but honestly, I would have liked to actually see a chunkier boot, or looser jeans, if he is going to do the megacuff. Right now, the chunky boots, ironically, actually look a little too dainty. There is no coherence or vertical progression in the silhouette.

The tee is nothing special, and the color is sort of distracting. the jacket, I suppose, could look okay, I suppose, but the incoherence of the rest of the outfit makes it hard to concentrate on it.

BTW, Parker is not a super tall guy - maybe 5'7" or a generous 5'8", tops. He is in decent condition, but I don't think that he'd claim to have a Brad Pitt physique. He is also not 22 and living in his parents basement. I've met him a few times (very nice guy), and he has looked sharp everytime I've seen him. He even gets the blazer and jeans things right. And maybe because of his field, he is able to add elements, like a scarf, that would look affected on many guys, and make it look very natural. He is also very open (I put him in some crazy outfits for the photoshoot) to new ideas, and maybe this mindset really helps him.
