Haha...thanks.

I think I'm ready to start posting some pics to this thread. Any advice on how to take photos? Seems hard to get the selfie right. The bathroom mirror shots here seem rather silly to me. Looks like the best shots are taken outside with help? Lighting seems to be key.

I like this combination of blue and green. In particular the tie and shirt together.

Yesterday I was too busy to post, so here it is. Checks and balances, although I am thinking a plain square would have been best considering the heavily patterned jacket.

Today I wore every warm piece I could find with a high of 12F/-11C). Double Donegal, lambswool vest, and those 500g Fox flannels. At first I was thinking this wouldn't work (two Donegals), but I think the sizes of the weave are far enough apart IMHO.

Though the tendency (of some) to distinguish style from fashion has always seemed a little bit silly (@Tirailleur1 for an amen).

 

Given that you are a skinny guy, you should probably look into getting clothes which aren't so loose; both your shirt and your pants look voluminous on you.

If you insist on wearing a tie with jeans, a knit is the way to go. But in general, that isn't going to get much love around here.


@Claghorn I had a feeling I'd be scolded. Trying to channel Ginsberg before he cuts off his own nipple.

Don't take mirror selfies.  There are billions of people on Earth.  Just ask one of them to take your picture.   This (nearly always) works for me, even if they don't speak the same language that I do.  If they have a camera, you should also offer to take their picture.

An other first day in winterwonderland for this new shirt.

Natural, diffused, light.

@Roycru Thanks, sound advice.

 

@ Caustic Man Also, thanks. I tried a few indoor shots but they were always too dark. May have to wait for warmer weather and more sun!

Cloudy days are the best. The light diffuses nicely and you can adjust the exposure if there really isn't enough light. Sunny days can make your photo look harsh and muddled. Of course, good photographers know how to get around that.
