Just as some examples of how movement/posture causes pulling.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)











None of the examples show much pulling due to selection

I don't have any personal knowledge about DB jackets, but in response to Isolation's question, there is a pretty timely article (from today) on Put This On that addresses how to cut one.

And a still image isn't the end all be all. On of the reason I don't put cuffs on most (though I do on some) of my pants is that in orde for cuffed trousers to look good still, they have to be just the right height. And at that height, I really dislike how the pants look in motion (displaying a lot of sock with every step, as opposed to some sock occasionally). So here is a feature of our outfits that look good in pictures, particularly standing, but don't look quite as good as in motion or while sitting. Nevertheless, cuffs are very popular on SF at least in part due to the prevalence of judging standing pictures.

Sage advice. Often forgotten by the iGent: At some point, you need to walk and function in these clothes.

QFT

 

It's a form of modern vanity: that any argument can be relativized, reworded, and framed such that the onus is not on the speaker.

When it would be simpler to just, you know, not wear blatantly tight jackets.

I like'em.

 

My tastes are still developing, admittedly, so I won't hold onto my preferences so much.

Wool or linen.

you've been saying that since you got here lol

post #33594 of 37405

I think it's been accurate since I got here.

On a different note, how come nobody said anything about the boots? =[ It's you noodlers who convinced me to get them after all.


Gotta repost them since it got lost in all that stuff

Yet another thing I wasn't going to mention, but I don't like them. lol

post #33597 of 37405

Aw, that's a pity, I really like them! Again, I can't imagine not finding them amazing, I suppose we really just have very different preferences. For instance I really like the leather piping, I think it's a nice subtle detail that gives it more character. I think I'm mostly going to wear them with tweed trousers, maybe cords, and mostly jeans, though.

post #33598 of 37405

If you like them then that's good enough. Just not my style. I might wear them with jeans or chinos, but they wouldn't be my first choice. Have fun with them.

post #33599 of 37405

Love boots, really don't like those.

 

Admittedly, that's a taste thing. There's certainly nothing "wrong" with them.
