My new jantzen shirt...photos. - Page 3

post #31 of 50
If you're a stickler for details, the width between the diagonal rows of dots does seem close to the width between the stripes on the shirt. However, the color of the dots seems to bring out his eyes (based on the photo). Personally, I think it's a wearable look for him.

I think the shirt and tie combination works fine... And I have to agree that the kind of comments from Dug aren't helping at all, really. Unconstructive criticism sucks.

Concur with previous posters that the shoulder needs to be taken in by about 1 cm on either side, and that the sleeves need to be shortened considerably. Also, it looks like your cuffs are a bit too tight (I'm of the school that believes that the cuff should fall just past your wrist naturally, and should allow enough space for a watch to be worn.) And I hate to say this, but I agree with Dug about the jacket. You should accentuate the color of the shirt with a medium gray or navy blue suit. As it stands, the olive/pistachio color is a little jarring. Also, the lapels just don't seem to fall correctly. They should fall right at the edge of the collar or cover the collar slightly. There is much definitely too space between your lapel and your neck. And the body looks a little shapeless. I suspect that the jacket needs a bit of tailoring to fit you perfectly. And the stone washed jeans with patch pockets is not a great look for you, whether you are wearing a jacket or just a sweat shirt. Nor does a thin black dress belt particularly go well with it. My advice to to get yourself to AB Fits in North Beach, or American Rag or Rolo on Howard, all good streetwear stores, and get yourself a proper pair of dark jeans - nothing fancy, mind you. A pair of basic Helmut Langs would do you nicely. But congrats on the shirt, very nice. As for matching patterns and stripes - it's doable, but risky. In this case, looking at the spacing and size of the polka dots, it could work.

Is the jacket really olive color? Judging by the lighting in the picture and the tone of hte white stripes, it looks as if the jacket is grey and the camera and lighting is just causing it to look olive-y.

And I hate to say this, but I agree with Dug about the jacket = not very politicly correct to say that. and rather childish so I hope CTGuy will ignore you as well as he porpose to do with me. More seriously, you want to look better as you make MTM shirts? To look like an tastfull guy? Well better learn about wearing (instead of talking about 1 cm on a MTM shirt) : - tasty garment/color/style/quality (and so avoid green jacket) - which fit your body (take the right size and avoid jean's making you look fater than you are.) - which matches together (plain/dot, plain/strip) What's why I explain our friend that is jacket (color, fabric, cut) jean's (cut) and belt (quality or age) are ugly (not even together but taken alone) and that dots do not match with strips (with different level of none matching). If he wants to wear MTM shirts fitting better with no taste for all other garment, this is his right. I just inform him. You will always find some people saying white socks, brown shoes, green suit, grey shirts and yellow tie are "ok" = look around you, many people are less or more like this. My opinion about how to look dressy = 1) black oxford shoes 2) navy/gray suit 3) white/bleu (pink) shirts, plain or stripped, classic collar, double cuff 4) cufflinks matching in color and form with your watch 5) braces 6) four un hand tie tie (no windsor) 7) shirt/tie/suit = 2 plain and 1 stripped or dotted (possible 2 stripped under conditions) My opinion to look casual without beeing a stupid fashion victim = 1) levi's 501 2) short leather jacket 3) cachemire sweater 4) black simple sneakers (no laofer please.) 5) one of your dressy shirt Avoid brands for fashion victims like Polo, Armani, D&G....and you will save lots of money for your real dressy wardrobe. P.S. Glasses are "ok".

Dug:  You obviously have a personal dislike for the combination of stripes and dots, and I believe that I speak for many when I assure you that your opinions are both welcome and respected here; however, the method by which you've demonstrated disagreement with the opinions of others leaves much to be desired. There are many schools of style, one not necessarily superior to another.  I'd be interested to know what you think are the most appealing styles, and what you find not to your liking, and why. I may not agree with all that you say, but you can be assured that I won't resort to personal attack because I disagree with you.  Please extend that courtesy to the rest of us. Here are a couple of photos showing a combination of stripes and dots that I feel look terrific.  Jack Buchanan and Robert Gieve were just two who subscribed to the idea that multiple patterns could be tastefully and stylishly paired.
I only said : 1) I did not like jacket, belt and jean's 2) Dots and strips did not match and so it was not the better way to show how a shirt is fine. The others said they did not agree with me...They can look like farmer if they want to but should assume. And so should avoid to hide behind the form of my reply to justify they are right. English is not my native language so the better way to explain enough well that a jacket is bad looking is "ugly" for me.... Sorry, if you prefer talking in french i am in . Jacket = ugly color, bad cut, falls bad Jeans = ridiculious pockets for girls or child under 12 years belt = too thin, no nice buckle and bad quality of leather

Man, I am never posting a picture of myself on this site. Frankly, I think the shirt looks fine. While it could probably use some tweaks, I think a perfectly form-fitting clothes are a bit weird looking. It's all a bit dandified. Regarding dug, I tend to agree with his assessments. I think his obvious lack of comfort with English can come across as rudeness. (Of course, some of it is simply rude: "The others said they did not agree with me...They can look like farmer if they want.") I don't think the tie goes with the shirt - not because of the pattern, but because they're different hues of pink.

Dug, My English not so verry good sometime but I try explain you some things: it verry dificult to read you when you say you do not like other clothes of people on forum. Sometime, it feel like you need good kick in head to make you smart. Pleaz stop, or else you get good kick in head or other place. Your clothes you tell us in other post, this is not nice clothes. More like clothes for cleaning sick pigs. Very sad you must wear clothes for sick pigs.......maybe we help send you nice clothes, make your mother not sad. Try be nice or go away. Or get kick in head.

This is nearly too perfect. Haito, are you having a little joke? Admit it. But I agree with Versace - burn.

By far, that is the funniest post I have ever read on the Style Forum.

This is the funniest post I've read anywhere in a long time. Was it just me, or did anyone else instantly think of that old Dr. Demento sketch "Ti Kwan Leep." I couldn't get that thought out of my head, so I had to dig it up online.  Here's the transcript as well as an mp3 of the sketch http://www.webguys.com/pdavis/karate/tikwanleep.html If you haven't heard this sketch before, I think its well worth the 2 minutes. Great post..

I agree with pink/pink not very nice here but dot/strips are more a "faux pas" up to me... You see, we started from "nice shirt/tie" to "bad color/bad pattern..." So if many people think it is not good matching it must mean it is not so good as most people said firstable. What can I say when one says "dot/stips are ok" when this is a basic rule of good taste not to wear them together? Seriously? How can these people dress but like farmer trying to look in fashion?
