So, I'm gonna venture further down Asshole Ave and ask why not put the notion into effect? Far easier than fighting the uphill battle you're currently embarking upon, in my estimation...

Here's the thing, Eric. You generally seem like a nice guy, but when you ask if you are being rude and someone tells you, yes, you are being rude, and instead of apologizing, you double down, yeah, you are definitely the asshole in that situation. Drop it.

Please see my reply to Clags for the dropping of it.

 

If I'm being entirely honest with myself, I would not consider myself a nice guy (though a good one, to be sure), and find the idea that such a tangent could genuinely be offensive rather appalling, but, admittedly, I am quite a bit harder to offend than most, so maybe that's on me.

 

My take: if you are mostly content (I don't think anyone should ever be fully content) with yourself, then carry on as is. If not, make changes. Just please don't play the outrage card and go off on "fatass island" (I would certainly consider myself an asshole if I'd broached the subject with a needless and offensive put down like that) monologues.

 

Either way, I digress. I do hope the suggestions put forth allow you to achieve your optimal fit.

I didn't go there until you'd shoved your foot further into your mouth, and it was a fairly obvious use of hyperbole to make a point.

 

It's offensive for you to broach the subject as you did because it assumes that I'm an idiot who didn't know that losing weight could improve the way clothes fit. It also assumes that you know more about how my body carries weight than I do. I've said this a number of times. I'm just under 6'. I weight about 185 pounds. Would I look better at 170? Probably. Would my hips be much smaller? No. Because they are made of bone, not fat. Also something that's been brought up a number of times in response to your original proposition. I literally have a wider hip structure than average, not more fat around my hip bones than average. You don't know me. You haven't lived in my body. If you don't have a suggestion of how to dress the problem better, please shove off.

Lol, with respect, a few suggestions:

 

1. Please don't suggest I'm asking you to shrink your bones. Don't be droll...

 

2. I think you're making weight loss (at this point, I don't care to argue, as you're being needlessly defensive) far more arduous than you need. I'm 5'9, close to 5'10", and weigh roughly the same as you, though I don't check the scale nearly enough to say for certain. You certainly do not need to lose 15, or, god forbid, more pounds in order to achieve whatever the look you desire is.

 

As someone who knows a fairly decent amount on the matter, I would be more than happy to HELP (as this is somehow being taken as me insinuating you're a fat slob, which I do not intend in any way) assist you in the field, if you have the desire. If not, well, not...there's no need to get sassy about it.

 

Consider the matter shoved...

A "good guy" would have known to just apologize and walk away 4 posts ago.

Sorry, hoss, won't ever get me to apologize for nothing I'm not sorry for. I'd much rather you think I'm an asshole (you'd have to crowd your way onto that bandwagon lol), then knowingly lie to you. However, I will say that I apologize for striking a clearly sensitive nerve, though certainly not for offering a suggestion I considered (and continue to do so) preferable to others being put forth.

 

As I said, best of luck honing in on your desired fit :nodding:

Good thing I brought my peanuts to work today.

post #27340 of 43893

From yesterday.  Orange you glad it's Thursday.  I wasn't sure about the shoes and pocket square today.  Any suggestions?  

 

 

Wait for it. Wait for it. (Click to show)

@An Acute Style are those blackwatch socks by chance? I'd be curious to know the brand, if they are.

 

My thoughts (let's see if I can avoid ruffling feathers this go round lol)

 

1) while I wouldn't consider that aggressive an orange for myself, I quite like how well it plays with the print/woven pattern of the tie...also compliments the green base, in my opinion.

 

2) I'll never understand the general aversion to a lighter top/darker bottom combo (I believe it has its own pet name here). I very much like it, especially in the colors chosen.

 

All in all, while it wouldn't necessarily be something I'd feel myself wearing, you sport it well!

Thanks.  Yes they are black watch socks.  They're Beams Plus from Mr. Porter.  I also have a pair of black watch socks by Polo.  You can usually find the Polo ones on eBay.
