Rye GB: i understand that it may be comfortable, but since when was that the point of fashion. also, how does he benefit from the "cut" of the pants? unless he's trying to hid bones sticking out of his shins, i don't think the baggy cut is very flattering. really the only thing I see in this is just the shock value of seeing someone who is clearly showered and put-together in something so casual.

Chron: i'm not necessarily saying he could have found exactly what he's wearing for cheaper, I'm just postulating on why he would want to wear that. I am actually waiting for his reply.

If his intention was to be fashionable he would wear:

Ed Hardy
Affliction
True Religion

I believe his intention is to look "stylish". Fit and comfort has much to do with having good style. A brand with an intention to be fashionable will put more effort into branding, exterior aesthetics and less effort into a great cut. If you think this forum is about being "fashionable" your missing the point by a wide margin.

Hmm.. I guess you could say the outfit looks decidedly more Larry David than Chris, though FtB pulls it off well imho. It's a difficult aesthetic, and although I agree that Yohji can look somewhat underwhelming in a pic, his clothes tend to really come to life when you see them in movement.

I suppose if you were to wear this in the middle of the day, it would be a bit of a shock at how underdressed you are, but I can't decide if that makes it fashionable. This isn't meant as a rip post, just trying to understand better.

I think you need to check your monitor if that's what you're seeing. Honestly.

Also start flipping through sartorialist for lots of non-tight fits, there's more to the world than that shit.

uh oh, looks like to managed to piss off the WAYWNT republican guard. Rye, fashion was not the word I was looking for there. I agree that comfort plays a huge role in style, but what I was really looking for is why that fit was interesting. Is it purely the shock value I mentioned before? Comfort obviously isn't all of style, or else we'd all look like michelin men.

Jet, I can appreciate a lot of non-tight fits, particularly workwear inspired, even though I don't dress that way. This one, however, is different. It just seems, well, bland. And if those pants are truly worlds apart from black fleece sweatpants then, yes, I do need to check my monitor.

I really do agree with this. However, I would disagree with your sentiment that he's shockingly underdressed. He just looks like a normal guy walking around, and I'm curious as to why someone would spend so much money just to look like a guy in relaxed clothes.
