Hahaha, because I want to and solely because nothing points me to the contrary except for few people like you who read beyond the dotted lines. Let people take it how they want. My friend, do yourself a favour by asking why people show off their watches here. Is it relevant to style forum or can we not at best stick to suit, shirt, tie and shoes?! I would also like to see if there is a specific clause of this forum that abhors the publication of phones? If that is the case, that could go as well for certain irrelevant accessories displayed on here.

Trust me, I can go on and on but I would rather focus my energy and add value to things that matter. Next?

@mcobinad sometimes when a chef prepares a dish, the sauce ends up a bit too dense. A few drops of vinegar, though perhaps not delicious by itself, make the result more palatable. That's what @sprout2 is to this thread. wink.gif

Thanks and your word is ACE. For me, it's not that hard to comprehend. If people don't like me for whatever reason best known to them, they are more than welcome not to thumb up my outfit. I'm not craving for thumbs. I'm quite hard on myself and have this propensity to see things taking a different outcome as that anticipated. I'm sick and tired of having to justify this, that, why did you do this, damn. There is more to life than seeking attention on SF. When I post my outfits on SF, I have already judged myself severely by pointing to areas susceptible to cause polemic and most often time than not, I have been right on that assumption. On this occasion, i'm forced to conclude that my pessimistic view of people's attitude has landed me far more credibility than not.

The main reason you would find disagreement to telephones is because they are mass-produced pieces of plastic. There is a separate home audio and appliances forum for that. I also carry various USB cables and batteries in my briefcase.

 

Incidentally, the main point of contention was balancing it on the back of your hand. That was just weird.

@mcobinad want some truth?   You are a solid fellow. well built. wearing suits for smaller men. but, you look fantastic in them.

 

you keep doing you. on your own terms. just keep moving forward.................

 

although....   IMHO A softer cut, or "neopolitan" cut will not only be more comfortable, but look more Boss.  that's not me saying to reshape your whole closet. but to try it on for size. - you got more tools in your kit than most. why not aim high with it?

 

 

- From a guy who breaks all the rules and does it his own way.   so it's your choice to accept or forget my opinion. no harm intended.

I can't believe that after everything that has been said, we are still arguing about this. It's been what; 2-3 pages look already?

There are limited edition phones out there, not all are massively produced and mine is one of those.

That I know. Same could go for watches, umbrellas, brief cases ostentatiously displayed on here.

I guess you would be needing that just in case your phone battery depletes and also for the benefit of uploading photos on SF with your USB.

I should have known better this is what caused me the thumbs on friday or could there be anything else to it? I'm still in a state of quandary. That again, is a personal thing and should not interfere when it comes to assessing me fairly. A fortiori, evidence has it that nothing indicates I have erred or gone against the backdrop of SF code of practice. Only that I'm forced to justify why I took photos with a phone. Sir, I argue cases for a living and as such could incessantly go on and on to emphasise a point. You can trust me on that. Therefore, I will rather we leave this issue and deploy our energy towards things that matter most to us. Case adjourned till further notice. smile.gif

@mcobinad Looking good in my opinion. You have some really nice things and you wear them well!

 

However, every time I have ever seen you post to this forum, someone (and not always the same someone) comments on your jackets being too tight.  For better or for worse, this will likely NEVER change, because in terms of classic menswear, your jackets simply ARE too tight. So either take the advice or ignore it, but arguing will get you nowhere on this particular subject (fit) with this particular crowd (classic menswear).

I think a problem is that people are used to giving out advice. He isn't looking for your advice on what type of silhouette she should go for, or what color palette to use. He likes where he is.

People keep attacking (what they call 'helping') because he won't conform to the 'SF standard' of what they think looks good or 'fits'.

If he likes what he has, who cares, as long as it makes him happy. If you don't like it, don't thumb. It's not going to hurt you to scroll past it.

It's also funny people use the 'it's too tight for classic tastes etc' using tradition as an example, and yet no one complains when people wear bluchers with suits, or many other 'traditional' faux pas.

False. We all need guidance in life and no one is an Island.

Again fallacy.You forgot that what gave rise to all this peripeteia was when the main subject matter bifurcated and took a different outcome as a result of a member referring to my photos as posing and also the use of a phone. That statement alone was like a fly in the ointment and really wound me up. Please let's address the root of a problem rather than seeking to solve the surface.

Sure they do. It happens all the time!
