I guess my criticism would be that I feel like the whole thermal-under-graphic-tee look is over and done. I'd also change the hat to something a little more stylish, rumpled and a tad oversized (that could be your 'flash'). I don't know who makes those stocking caps, but I've seen them, and they're cool.

I dunno about you, but I think the whole suit and tie thing is getting really tired as well. ... wait.

How the hell can it be over and done? That's almost like saying wearing jackets is done.

To me graphic tees are really tired, and people have been doing the thermal under the t-shirt for too long now, so I'M bored with it. There are other ways to layer, you know. All of this is JMO anyway, but I still say it's over and done in NYC at least- still big w/ the Jersey set though.

sorry, but i have to completely disagree with you here. look at mr. dean in your avatar. he looks relaxed, like he is not even aware of the camera. natural, action, or interestingly posed photos beat out static shots that say "look at my clothes" any day of the week imo.

look at sauce's shots. easily one of the best posters on here and he never stares straight at the camera and his shots show you exactly how his clothes fit without him looking like a dork with a camera in one hand saying "look at my pants".

Things I've been loving about this thread lately: bk's trench, sm's fit, gs's sweats (well, from the other thread), buttless chaps, dr's holdfast pose, people claiming suits are done...

If you wanted to mix in something more striking, ditch the white chucks for your grey ones and wear a red tshirt accented against the grey tshirt underneath. You'd still get some of it under the sleeveless hoodie. Alternatively, you could mix in a separate monochromatic palette, like a dark brown longsleeve tshirt with a khaki tshirt over it. None of this is particularly complicated; about the only rule, if that term is even applicable, is that it's probably best to make the tshirt lighter than the long sleeve tshirt if you're pairing it with the black sleeveless hoodie (which you can swap out for a sweater vest or even a suit vest, if you want to start doing unusual things).

There are plenty of other things you could do, obviously. You could swap out the multicolored beanie for a either a more fragile, fashion-y piece like a thin cashmere beanie or you could go the exact opposite direction and try a military surplus hat to go with the military style jacket (looks like it was modeled after Diesel's Jubetwo, though there's probably a real jacket with similar details I don't know about). You could, of course, try exploring more unconventional aesthetics if you wanted to, and speaking as a kid who is (as far as I can tell) a hell of a lot poorer than you, there are ways of managing that (mostly a mix of thrifting, learning to sew, eBay, and creative shopping). Not saying you have to; just that you don't have to spend more on an outfit with Demeulemeester, Diem, and Maltieri than I spent on my High Performance Civic.

See, lots of good advice. Mostly I'm just trying to encourage people to feel free to criticize my fits, since at the very least it gives me a new perspective. And it's not like I'm going to get my panties in a bunch.

(BTW, without getting into numbers, my income's got to be among the lowest on this forum among people who aren't currently students (and I guarantee you there are students on this forum whose parents give them more money than I make each month). There are people here who have watches that cost significantly more than I make in a year.... Crazy. I have a lot of cheap stuff that I can afford mostly because I don't have a car or any transportation expenses. If I had a car, I'd be wearing the same jacket and one of my three shirts every day, with one pair of GAP jeans or something. When I hit the Powerball, though, it's Ann Dem/L Maltieri/Julius/etc until my closets overflow.)

I agree with both you and ts4them on the beanie--I'm not super fond of it. I can't do a cap, though, because my ears would freeze and fall off. Generally speaking, if it's cold enough for me to want something on my head, I need my ears covered, and otherwise, I usually prefer to go hatless (though I do rock a CMF-style newsboy cap once in a while). I've never really found a satisfactory solution.

I'd like to add: Bandwagonesque not noticing I actually love suits. Sauce: How lucky you are to live in a town where everything's in reach. You don't need to pollute the environment or otherwise spend what could be clothing money fixing a piece of $#!+ Chevy Lumina like me. I haven't made a single purchase since the grey jeans ($25) and fair isle v-neck ($10).

Moncler Gillet 45rpm flannel 45rpm jeans Visvim Sauce. Good job with the budget contraints. When I first moved to the US I was 21 and living on 104th st on the Westside of Manhattan. I was so skint I'd put aside $15-$20 a week and head to Canal Street Jeans on Lower Broadway for Military Surplus or head to the Salvation Army on West 96th for tee's and jeans. That was probably my most fashionably creative time. I'm still amazed at how many good sneakers you can find at thrift stores, I guess that's why I would always see homeless doods in NY rockin Jordans.
