KJ, this is a fine way of looking at things, but there's a line between items looking kitschy and oversized (good) and sloppy (not good). If the shoulders fit, but the sleeves are long, fine; if the sleeves fit but the shoulders drop a bit, that's fine too - it's when both are off that I think it verges on sloppiness. The whole thing looks fairly droopy in that picture. I shouldn't say that it absolutely doesn't work, but in the low-quality bathroom picture you posted, it certainly doesn't appear to. I hope it works out, but when you're talking about tailoring one or more aspect of every purchase you make, it seems to me that you're just buying things in the wrong size.
I think it looks like a fun piece, though, especially with some loose white trousers and a ridiculous 70's shirt. FWIW, I don't think you get any "hate" at all. Snark, sure, but SF has a way of producing snark when advice is seemingly ignored, though.
Feel absolutely free to post more pictures and prove me completely wrong, though - maybe a full body shot when you're not hunching over with your hands in your pockets?
