This applies to you more than it does to some others on SF.

Real talk.

Does it? Than this thread should be of little interest to you.

I'm surprised it took 9 pages for that picture to show up

All kidding aside, Foo definitely gets my respect. The challenges he faces for a perfect fit are formidable yet he prevails.

It would probably be one of the greatest assets to revive the forum and the credibility issues you seem to be alluding to

even on fit, but vox was more prolific, and posted more fit pics.

I had a conversation with a "stylist" last night, and, strangely, I think it's relevant to this thread.

 

Main point: being overly technical and strategic in the way you dress reeks of effort (in a bad way from a females perspective) and says more about your lack of natural style and makes you look ordinary.

 

I didn't agree fully, but I do agree with at least a portion of what this person was saying. Style, natural style, looks effortless. Sure, proper fit, color matching and textural balance is very important, but, when you get so granular that you are pointing out the smallest of details, you are no longer stylish, you are adhering to a set of rules that are subjective at best, and that often times make you look rather ordinary in the end. I think there is such a thing as being to put together. Aside from gross examples of a bad fit, or ridiculous color/pattern matching,if someone looks cool, they look fucking cool, and it really does not matter that their "gorge" might be 1 millionth of an inch off.

 

I also respect, foo,  I've got to be honest, this outfit may fit perfectly; to me it looks boring. I much prefer the way guys like Spoo/Vox dress.

Foo's fit above could have been improved with a bolder tie. This, in a way, is what the earlier part of this thread was about (the part that was actually interesting).

I agreed with Manton's point that Timotune's tie would have been better with a dark navy suit. More tonal separation, as Foo phrased it. The photo below is of Foo in the same suit, but just with a bolder tie. Though the tie isn't in the same color as the suit, it achieves the same effect.

That's definitely not the same suit

You're right. My mistake.

Guilty.
