I don't see any problem with critiquing without posting.  Siskel and Ebert's opinions about movies aren't any less valid because they didn't make movies themselves.  I think if someone has a meaningful and relevant opinion to share, then I'm more than willing to listen.  The advice isn't always meaningful and relevant though so if often falls on deaf ears as it should.

Solid point.

In all due respect, I think that's 2 different arguments although I do see your point. For example, someone can lack athletic and or physical ability to play a certain sport but it doesn't mean that they can't learn the game and become a great head coach or GM. But with dressing up, to me it's different. Anyone can put some nice clothes on and show us how it's really done. Don't lecture me about what's right or wrong sartorially and I've never seen you in a suit. My 2 cents, of course.

I think reviewing movies is more akin to critiquing clothing in respect to the actual process.

However, even if one can and does dress well, there might not be the inclination to take pictures and post them online.

Not that posting online doesn't have some value. It certainly adds credibility. Thus, if someone like UrbanComposition were to voice his opinion about something without going into great deal justifying it, it's still something most here would take into consideration, and rightly so. His outfits are consistently excellent which signal both understanding and taste which would then underlie his opinions.

If an individual doesn't post outfits, to be worth listening to, he must justify his opinions more fully (and carefully).

Interesting last few pages.

 

Monday. In hindsight there could be more distinction between the top and bottom blocks. Tie is a blue knit.

I like it, Spandexter.  Good low-contrast could use more exemplifiers.

Awesone as usual, Span. It's a new year so I think it's time we try to tak you into cuffing your trousers again. biggrin.gif

Are the pants olive or gray?  Cotton or wool?  I think the bigger question is to crease or not to crease?  I'm pro crease.  I don't mind the navy tie, but I think a brown knit would have tied the fit together more.

Pants are olive. I'm huge pro crease as well. I don't wear these pants often but they're impressive on how well they can't hold a crease. Time for a press.

 

Re cuffing. I'm cuff neutral - don't love them,don't hate them. However, there are 6,500 people in my office building and I often see hankies, knit ties and odd jackets. What I have never seen in the last 5 years, across all those people, are cuffed trousers. That's primarily why all mine remain cuff-less.

I hardly think anyone would remember me, but, I attempted to be a regular contributor to and learner in this thread about 2 years ago. I took 2 years off working in a professional setting to gather data for my dissertation, write it, and defend it and took a job in data collection for a fellow researcher, strictly casual. Thankfully, I am employed in a professional setting again and can reap the reward of dressing how I prefer to most days. Sorry for the poor quality, I just snapped this in the hopes I would have the time to post it. From Friday, Polo jacket (dark blue glen plaid) , howard yount trousers, and a purple and green madder tie (will post close ups in the future of shirt/tie/jacket combos. Photo is a bit fish eyed, so perspective may be off! (i.e. sleeves on the jacket are fine in real life, pants look a big wider in the thigh) Look forward to interacting with old and new faces here and contributing to a seminal thread in my development as a professional, dressing well has actually helped me stand out in my field and I owe it you gentlemen!


He's back! Congrats on the academic achievement.

Actually, Ebert did take a stab at making movies (poorly):

Brilliant stuff! I'm a big Russ Meyer fan.

post #31830 of 43907
I am not surprised, Cox. smile.gif Lest you think that I'm judging you, I should note that I went on a Meyer binge 20 years ago.
