The assumption is that your ability to escape the mockery is attributed to your body type. The outfit could have been stereotypically AmJack, hence the A&F comment (it is in a lot of cases, I have a friend who is in love with D&G pre-distressed jeans). The fit was good on the tee; the jeans weren't my style but then again, some things I like may not be yours. I like the Spencer Hart fit.

Well I am a little offended by the idea that it is my body that prevents the look from being bambasted! What I reacted to (and still do) is that A&F wear in my opinion could not accomplish such a look. A&F has cheap and badly done distressing etc. I think that SuperBobo are completely wrong in thinking it looks A&F (although I respect if he does not like the outfit per se) and I am surprised that he does not see the difference between these items and A&F. The point I try to make is; sure one can wear clothes that are similar to those produced by A&F or Zara or something but what this forum is all about is to discuss and be able to pick the difference and that difference is what distiguishes the look. I highly respect SuperBobo as a good dresser (although not in a style I presonally wear) and a gentlaman in his comments, maybe that is why I was taken by surprise
I think I avoid the AmJack look in this case by choosing a great jean (I will try to take clos-ups later so to show better the completely handmade distressing, again not D&G!) and a nice tee. Regarding SuperBobos edit on his last post: But does todays look resemble Zara/HM then if not A&F?? and is the positive remark made by for example Get Smart due to "my body"?? /TKL
