I'm with Elio, I'm not a fan. A lot of guys in my military unit used to do that to their fatigues back in the day when they weren't pajamas and you actually had to iron. Clothes are for wearing and when they get worn, they look worn. It doesn't bother me. I just repress them myself after each wear if needed.

I hate pressing trousers. I always get it wrong and it doesn't line up perfectly, which means there's 2 or more feint creases next to each other.

 

I don't get that logic, why would you repress the crease after each wear if you want your clothes to look worn? Does that mean you want your clothes to look crisp for a couple of hours in the morning and then look all wrinkled when you go to meet a client in the afternoon?

 

Anyways, to each his own. I like it and will probably do it for all of my trousers. It'll save me time in the long run and I like looking sharp when I leave the office after a long day of sitting down.

Yeah, we used to call that the "railroad track" look when guys had two ceases in their pants and/or shirt. I'm weird, I like ironing/pressing and I like at least starting off my day looking sharp. In my opinion, it's easy to differentiate between sloppy and worn. I think you can look worn, sharp, and comfortable in your clothes at the same time. I actually think you look just that in the picture by the water you shared. Anywho, do what makes you happy...

I love cream trousers. Maybe I should get cream cords instead of flannels? hmmmmm.

cream flannel > cream cords

Agreed. They're about 4 times as expensive, but they look very nice. I still can't believe these pants were only $80.

The problem with saying you are leaving SF is that its really almost inevitable that you return in some capacity or another. smile.gif

NS1 - Great looking shoes/boots.
post #15458 of 37396

Yeah but maybe I can get both!

 

Anyway guys thoughts on this?

 

 

I somehow find this extremely pleasing to the eye. I can't tell if it's the cut or the guy is just got an extremely shapely/slender figure, and why it is that it's striking to me.

 

I also really like the outfit. idk I just really like it.

^not into that one at all. Very reblog-bait.
post #15460 of 37396
What unbel said.
post #15461 of 37396
That just looks like crap and a waste of good individual pieces.
post #15462 of 37396
All of that ^^^
post #15463 of 37396

Yeah I agree, but I can't tell what's pleasing/striking to me. I assume it's because the jacket is way too tight and it looks good when specifically posted like that. There's something feminine to it that I really like and I can't tell if it's a cut thing, pose thing, or guy is just really slender.

post #15464 of 37396

it looks wayyyyy too small and tight fitting....like the waistcoat is a corset. 

 

big thumbs down. 

post #15465 of 37396

That's what I've been missing in my life, a corset.

 

 

edit:

Yeah I think I just really liked the angle and thought the guy was hot, that's probably it. I put my own suit on with a waistcoat and the cut gets a similar effect when you pull the jacket in tight so it's probably a post thing. I was just wondering what about the picture made it appealing to me I didn't think it was necessarily the clothes.
