GS, awesome sweater!

I kind of figured as much. I really like that cardigan though, I want to work it into something eventually. How do you feel about the sweatshirt instead? I'm a little hunched in the pic, obviously I don't really walk around like that.

Great site. I'm new to the forum. Some great dressers on this site. I hope to post some pics pretty soon.

The tee isn't awful but would be better complemented by a jacket/hoodie of a similar dark color. The hoodie's fine on its own but the outfit itself just looks thrown together. Nothing wrong with "average" days but it's hard to critique further as you're going in the middle of the road.

Are you challenging me to a slouch off? I must warn you, i sit in poorly designed desks that promote terrible posture 5 days a week.

Well, I went a bit simple today. I had to try out the new hoodie I picked up (the one that inspired the SFxMJK hoodie coming November) Some South Korean Brand Cardi/hoodie Black/Grey striped thermal APC NS Brown strapped/studded slip on pointed shoes from some Western store in Shibuya Backdrop is Starbucks on 29th, studying tonight. The hoodie fits great (fits much slimmer without my hands in my pockets) but is on the light side. I would suggest it for layering.

The denim jacket is too big for you, and the Canadian tuxedo is a really hard look to pull off. Unfortunately, it's not working for you.

Your jeans are too high up on your waist and it makes you look like you have hips.

I'm not really into the shirt-unbuttoned-to-below-nipple-height look.

Happy?

Fit: Everything is just slightly too big. That is not a drop shoulder shirt. The shoulder line of the shirt should hit about 1/2" higher on your shoulders. Also, I would go with a slimmer cut. Same goes with the jacket. That is a Type III jacket, which was designed to fit snug. You could go, maybe 2 sizes smaller. Only the Type I jacket (single chest pocket, cinch back, pleated front) is supposed to fit a little big. And then it should still fit square on the shoulders, just boxier around the torso. The jeans fit reasonably, but are cinched up unflatteringly high. You do not need to slouch them, but let them sit comfortably on your hips.

Details and color: Man, did you wake up and say "Today, today is a blue day." You need something there. I am nota fan of the all black outfit, but at least there is a statement there. Here, nada. The shirt is not doing it for me. It is a not a terrible shirt, but it looks like it should be worn with a suit. It looks like a pretty fine cloth. Too fine. Try an oxford cloth shirt instead. The dark henley under the (too unbuttoned) shirt looks busy without being interesting. The dark boots and belt fade into the background without drawing our eyes at all.

oh, shit...critiques!...i'm ready for it!...

well...interestingly enough (coming from the man who put the damn outfit together,) i'd have to very much agree with just about every point that you guys made...so that you know where i'm coming from (and for the benefit of any other poor souls that suffer from similar fashion afflictions,) i'll tell you where my head was at in making these decisions...

let me begin by saying that i'm very much in flux, fashion-wise -- certainly, in no small part due to my exposure to all the different styles on this forum...and so, i find myself at a stage where i'm apt to make awkward moves that i wouldn't usually make -- like the henley under the button-down...it didn't really feel right...but i'm trying to nudge myself out of my comfort zone...so, i said wtf...and plus, i'm stuck with a bunch of aa stuff that is a little big on me, and i'm reaching for ways to wear them tucked in...

sizing, in general, is a problem for me...i just lost about 15lbs (preceded by a similar weight loss, about a year ago)...so, i'm stuck thinking i'm a sz L, when i'm not...i've got a lot of f***ing shopping to do...

but, that jacket...i love it...it's vintage big "E"...not a repro...but, you're right, guys...it's just too damned big...sz 42, when i'm comfortably wearing sz 40, these days...maybe a tailor could do something about it...or a soak to shrink it up...but, i fear it's a lost cause

the jeans...well, see...i have no ass...and that's what a guy with no ass looks like when he wears a pair of 501 stf's sz 33, when he should have gotten 32's...when i slouch them down, there's a lot of extra material doing weird things back there...maybe when they soften up some more, it'll be better...but, in the meantime...

i got dressed up in my little blue denim uniform for a reason...i paid my second visit to BiG to pick up my skull s5010xx 6x6 sz32...lower rise, infinitely better denim, slimmer legs (but, not so slim that they look silly with my frye brando's)...exactly what i was looking for...but, i gotta tell you...it still feels really strange spending this kind of money on casual clothes...yes, i'm trying to break out of my comfort zone...but, i had to break out of that f'ing store, before i dropped another 4 bills on a belt and a shirt!...

and, spicing up my bland eye for color?...i guess i'm hoping that will just develop, if i spend a little more time focusing on it...

thanks for the input, fellas...you have brought me one step closer to being able to walk through the streets of soho with confidence

here's a couple of pics of the fit of my new skulls...forgive the kofta sandwich...i was hungry
