This has been happening for 10+ years here. There is no reason that one cannot critique someone else's outfit if one has not posted an outfit (or does not frequently post) oneself.

EDIT: I just went back and looked at the outfits in question, among others, and... well... where is @mafoofan or @voxsartoria?

True … but Siskel & Ebert didn't critique movies anonymously from behind their keyboards either.

Can we get the Deets on brand and color for those shoes?
@Spandexter

One of my biggest problems with the whole "if you don't post fits, you shouldn't critique them" argument is that is only comes up in referencing negative fits. I've yet to see someone complain that a positive critique has no merit since the poster doesn't ever post fits.

I agree with Clags that someone who doesn't post pictures of themselves has to be more careful, if they want to be taken seriously. On the other hand, I don't think it's necessary to always insert qualifiers such as "IMO" and it's variants. The fact that my post is under the member name "Chaconne" is all that is necessary to make it clear that it's my opinion and not the word of God.

On still another hand (If I can have 3), I have chosen to use these qualifiers because my sartorial knowledge is severely limited and I am still new here. If I learn enough to speak confidently about these matters over the next comply of years I'll drop the IMOs like a bad habit.

Lastly, I have to agree with the idea that however rudely an opinion is stated, it is more helpful for me if those that disagree state why the rude poster is wrong rather that criticize the tone of the post.

Sorry if this felt like a rambling rant. Off to bed...

It's a fact of human communication that tone is just as important as content, and sometimes more so. Please don't discontinue your use of qualifiers. Civility and elegance are not in such an excess abundance that we should willingly dispense with a single drop of the stuff. smile.gif

Meyer's focus on huge-breasted women is puerile, but his social commentary is mostly spot-on.

 

SB, I'm sure you noticed that from day one Meyer's movies were giving meaty, three-dimensional roles to black actors (an idea which maintstream Hollywood apparently still struggles with). He was right at the forefront of a socially liberal and permissive movement which had its roots in the rock'n'roll rebellion of the late 60s.

 

Watching that "Dolls" trailer sheets it all home. Meyer has crammed every possible liberal/permissive cliché into a three-minute clip with razor-sharp editing (always his strong point) overlaid with a rhythmic and poetically cadenced talk-track which reminds me of nothing so much as Gil Scott-Heron.

 

And guess what. "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" and "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" were both released in... 1970. Can you dig it, brother? :D

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

Good fit and spot on with your self-critique, I think.

Yes please. Start an office trend.

No idea why the colors seems so off, bad camera I guess. Tie is burgundy, shirt is light blue. The ligthning also makes the upper part of the tie looks superwrinkly, which is not present in real life.

Today at work, I am sporting a tattersall cutaway shirt, printed silk seven-fold, odd vest and a peak-lapel windowpane jacket with a white linen pocket square :D
