A Daily "Mens Clothing" and "Streetwear and Denim" Fit Comparison Thread - Page 2

post #16 of 330
I've already slathered praise on Ivwri's look, so I'll just say this: that linen jacket on the left is almost mindblowingly good, if just a bit overpadded in the shoulders

He has to, as free flowing garments like these ones would look awful on someone with some extra weight. This will sound counter-intuitive to many MC people but loose clothing made of lighter weight fabrics may look fine when you're doing a robot pose but will cling on your body in the worst way possible when you're in movement.

If it helps to know, my jacket size is ~40 and my pant size is 30. I'm 6' 1" and weigh 165.

i x-posted that fit on left in SWD WAYWT nobody said a word but it's damn good, i would wear it with white linen uncreased/pleated trousers in a heartbeat.

and obviously, Irwii is a 6'4 west african raw powaaa no doubt he's fit in fact he's ripped as hell and that pretty much means he can wear anything well (no skintight early dior of course)

Thanks. That's not model slim but still quite slim for your height, anyway my comments still apply. As I said we can't even know if you have a small gut or not (you probably don't) because the jacket would hide such "imperfections".

ctp120: I like the rumpling sleeves, the shape of the shirt collar and the line of the pants. I'm not too keen on the jacket's pattern but then I think MCers would gain a lot by realizing they are NOT minimalists (too much patterns, colours and textures) unlike what many including Acecow and Mafoofan have claimed (they think aesthetics are social because they're mediated by the social which is very naive) and maybe trying to be a little bit more. The vagina pocket should also go. Pants are excellent.

I like most irwi fits a lot, but this one doesn't do it for me. MC fit is really nice for what it is, imo.
post #22 of 330
I think both fits are excellent.

I think this is going to be like comparing Japanese calligraphy and ballet. Which is better and why? My understanding from Whodini, who is one of the few posters who has ventured over the wall, is that MC and SW&D have almost completely different aesthetics and analytical approaches. But anyway, in the spirit of Vox's experiment, I will post my thoughts here instead of in MC.

I think I kind of get why Vox chose these two. For one thing, they employ a similar palette to very different effect. But if you posted Ivwri's outfit in MC, you would get a bunch of detailed analysis of details. For example, there would be a long discussion about his shoes (which I think are a weak point), whether his pants were long enough and his decision not to wear socks. Some people would probably argue about whether his velcro straps should be narrower, or maybe wider -- that would be a pretty explosive topic, could go on for pages.

My understanding is that this kind of hyper nitpicking doesn't really work over here. But it's really the heart and soul of MC. I think it's both a good thing and a bad thing. For one thing, tailored clothing allows you to obsess about a lot more details than you can with SW&D stuff. A tailor once told me about a guy who insisted on having his pants taken in 1/8 of an inch. And having an understanding of these details can really improve your critical eye. Plus, being a hobby, this kind of arcane knowledge is sort of fun. "Look at that guy over there! His sleeve pitch is off!" But it can also turn you into an anal retentive jerk who needs to up his OCD meds.

Now ivwri's outfit looks like a pile of clothes in the midst of falling off a shelf

Wait, what? Why would you cut out half of the look?

so the 'crazy' part was the interchangeable buttons?

Why was the MC guy missing his shoes in the first place?

It's even less astonishing with Fuuma's prefatory statement than it was the first time.

It's cropped almost identically to that of CP120's fit pic...

This thread sucks btw - the SWD does MC and MC does SWD threads were genuinely alright and worthy of discussion, but pitting them against each other does not work. For one, MC is easier to master than SWD - all you need is stacks of cash, and the terms and checklists you guys have already written. The clothes do most of the rest. SW+D has shown that money can't buy style.
