I find it rather humorous that you assume to know my tastes. Why do you believe I have a particular disdain for Lanvin? Why do you believe I have something against "some of the most refreshing things in menswear?" What have I said to give you this impression?

I mean, just look at Lanvin:

How refreshing!

Nerd alert.

It was disappointing to see shellshock not be able to take non-praise without getting really upset, typing in all caps and assuming that we think she's worthless or needs to start spending a lot of money. A good portion of the people here don't spend a lot of money. Just a decent amount on jeans, maybe one or 2 outerwear pieces and then fill stuff in with cheaper brands. Sauce does that and gets more love than probably anyone besides GS. Your outfits aren't entirely unique, chic or really fashionable but they fit you well and look good on you.

It was also disappointing to see everyone all of a sudden gang up and then try to alienate and make her feel like crap for no reason. We all (except GS and socal) have our "jeans and tshirt" days. While it is kinda funny when people play the creepy old man card, i dont' see a problem with casually complimenting her every once in awhile when she does in fact look good in her clothes (in a non-sexual way.).

The whole socal v. styleforum battle was kinda funny though. Maybe this can become an every other month kinda thing.


PG2G. Great fit and adorable kid.

I take it you are unfamiliar with the ways of the Women of the Internet -- their humor, it is different and smells of lilac.

That ain't just the internet and I'm not sure that's lilac.

Mayor, nice watch. Who makes it? I like the strap.

The strap is from here: http://www.centralwatch.com/watchsto...roducts_id=138

You buy the straps seperately (5 for $25), then buy a cheap Timex from Target and replace the strap it came with.

To answer everyone else:
evilgenius: I hear what you're saying, but I already lift for an hour each day. This is about as big as my chest is gonna get. (We can't all be Drizz) I think it'll be much easier to just find jeans that are more forgiving on the hips. Besides, less fitting tops just look baggy on me.

apocalypse: I had that same concern about the Polo, because I too hate blatant branding, but I have had tons of compliments on that shirt. People love the big pony, especially women. I got it more as a conversation piece than a logo.

Maybe, but it surely isn't in poor taste, yes? Nothing wrong with jeans & tees, if they fit well. If I post pics of my abs will that make you happy?

Nothing too sartorially adventuresom this weekend. 100 degrees today in Austin.

Today's effort:


OK, I know everyone's gonna say the hips look too wide on the jeans. Working on it-- I have really wide hips for a guy. Gonna buy some new jeans in NYC next weekend.

Saturday:

Looking at your fits, I noticed that you like very slim fitted tops. If you indeed have problems with your hips, you might benefit with tops that have a little more room in the body (slim but not as tight as you wear them). That way your silhouette drops more in a straight line or taper hiding your hips.

Getting even slimmer jeans might help but I think changing your tops might be a better idea... just my $0.02.

I was away all weekend and I want to thank you all for a that mini epic melodrama that played out over the past 7 or 8 pages. I laughed, I cried, l lost faith and then faith was restored. Some of these threads read like serialized novels.

I would like to say that I quite like Lanvin, but SoCal criticizing people for embracing their inner construction worker and posting what amount to wolf-whistles is pretty much the height of irony.

But let's get on topic. The_Mayor, I'm pretty much with phooi here. Your hips are pretty wide, and I'm not sure that new jeans alone are going to do the trick. If they do, great, but until then, I'd consider wider, looser-fitting shirts to even out your silhouette.
