Unnecessary? Certainly.

 

Hilarious? I lulzed.

 

Foxtooth, we dig your hair and your 'stache. Your moose knuckle, perhaps less so. I'll give it a pass this time, because I appreciate irreverence and iconoclasm and because your inseam Bullwinkle was clearly incidental.

 

Keep those fits coming.

And no offense if you're not, since by any measure the fits are great).

I too have noted your fragrance selections, and though I find some Serge Lutens a bit too "oriental spice market" and over the top for my taste, I do have a bottle of Fumerie Turque which I enjoy on occasion.


I have a small business, part of which is photography, so I have the opportunity to take pictures in the middle or at the end of the day. And I really shoot the clothes, which did business during the day. smile.gif

@VictorSFreturn

I'm really liking your casual fits. None of this boring sport jacket with pants type thing. I like how you mix it up

Since when is it required to wear pants with a sport jacket?

This foxtooth fellow, he amuses me. Please leave him be.

I'm getting a strong "extra from an episode of Jeeves & Wooster" vibe from his DB fit, though it is unimpeachable on a technical level. Possibly the moustache is to blame.

Yeah, I think navy or brown would have been better for the vest.

Knowing that he has a BFA or MFA just reinforces my desire to have him take high quality photos.

FT: I like nice pictures of clothes more than the clothes themselves. This is why, after seeing you use a dslr and then hearing you have several tripods and I'm assuming a number of lenses, I hope you'll put them to use at least a couple of times.

For what it's worth, I've gotten my process down to about 6-7 minutes, including getting dressed. My tripod remains set up in the same place. I get dressed (3-4 minutes), bring a chair in (10 sec), place the camera on the tripod (10 sec). Grab the remote (5 sec). Sit and take a picture (30 sec). Check and adjust color balance (roughly...I'm not aiming for perfection); also adjust the chair slightly if necessary (60 sec). Sit and take 2-3 more pictures (60 sec). Take out the memory card (15 sec). Put away the camera (20 sec). Put away the chair (10 sec). Out the door.

Keep in mind, I usually will have figured out what I'm wearing prior to this.

I was late the other day and did one in under five. Maybe even under four. This one, I think.



I hadn't even planned the outfit; I sort just grabbed items based on my gut (though I knew from experience that the jacket and those pants worked well together). Got lucky in that I don't think I had to adjust anything but exposure.

+1 Fox adds balance to the force.

@Claghorn what if you had masking tape X on the floor for the chair position, the blinds at a constant height, pre-programmed white balance settings for that location and time of day, and the camera plugged into a computer to upload the photo and auto-post to SF? You could do it under 60 seconds. #scientificmanagement

That's incredible Clags. Not sure whether to be awed and/or slightly repulsed by your seemingly robotic, ruthless efficiency. So much for hrs spent to achieve a look of effortless sprezz.

I can't even pick a tie and reasonably knot it in under 7 mins ( but then I hardly ever wear one, so each time a new adventure).

@RecklessGent, welcome and nice debut fit.  Really like the suede monks and the tie--is it ancient madder?  Interested to see a fuller fit pic to see how the items integrate.
