Thoughts?

 

They have rare, and casual, uses for me. Maybe I'm with you on the issue, I don't know. SW&D had a boner for this fit, but I could never fully get behind it.

SWD is usually pretty kind when a CM user posts a reasonable fit lol.

Yeah sand would work but it's basically offwhite tongue.gif still yes I think I might get them just to wear with those colors. Thoughts?

 

I meant the darker sand ones. Like, New England prep khaki.

If only this were true. I actually think they are worse than we are when it comes to criticism. Possibly much more vague as well.

Are we talking solely of dark linen shirts, or linen shirts in all colors?

 

If the latter, I find the idea that they cannot be worn with a sportcoat/tie is absurd.

It's the glasses, haircut, and cut. They all say: apocalyptic wanderer from the Matrix. You were probably going for "hippie."

No, reading comprehension failure

I don't think the concept is so bizarre, guys. You go to the shirtmaker, point at a bunch of stuff, then are alarmed to find how hideous it looks made up. There are always some burners, for whatever reason.

So we're NOT talking about dark (blue) linen shirts? If I'm off base with both, then you'll surely need to enlighten me.

 

In any event, that I didn't manage to offend the plebs, at least through your POV, is something I'll just have to consider a victory :rotflmao:

Does anyone else listen to gangster rap while getting dressed in the morning?

Just asking.

This is also a regular favorite. Sometimes I am unable to even slither out of my chrysalis without this one.

 

 

Molting each day and slipping into a new Textile Interface is not an easy work.
