That answers the question I was going to post, "Would you all still like berlin report's outfit if he was wearing Hanes and H&M?" I liked your outfit today too, btw. Great fit on the v-neck.

definitely. Makes me wish h&m had a similar pair still. I need a cheap shirt. Hanes stuff usually fits well, but i'm between sizes with them so i have too tight and too loose. I love when people wear cheaper stuff, because it gives me hope still being in college and having very little money. Plus, when you have the confidence, good pose and camera, things always look better. I just want a cheap pair of at the knee shorts, that aren't too baggy, and it's hard to tell from the picture, but they look like they might fit the bill. When i say nice "fit", i'm talking about the way the clothes fit the body and don't use it as another word for "outfit". His overall look is nice and clean there too, but there are sometimes when people have a nice fit, but not the best overall look and vice versa. I need to start posting more. It's summer so it's mainly basketball shorts and tshirts for lounging, but what the hell. I'll dig out my camera tomorrow.

Yeah, no offense drizzt, but I keep thinking you have some secret club where you laugh about how we all try to gently correct your jackets without just coming out and saying "dude that looks awful". So I'll be the one. You can be mad at me if you want, but I'm sure you know I'm trying to help. This looks awful.



The shoulders have too much padding for you, making them look lumpy and convex, and pulling up the armholes, which is causing that dent in the top of the sleeves. If it looks like that in any picture, it probably looks like that most of the time.

The sleeves are a bit too short, and the sleeves of the shirt are too short, or it could be that since the armhole is pulling up, it's pulling the sleeves of the shirt up. The shoulder padding once again may be to blame.

But before you go taking out the shoulder padding, the jacket is too short for you anyway, the button stance is somewhat low and the buttons are close together, and along with the besom pockets it looks quite dated. Please give up on this jacket.

From the knee down this looks decent, but the jeans are too tight for your thighs and make you look knock-kneed.

I would be very grateful if you were to not dismiss my comments and reply with "it's just this picture", "i was making a weird pose" or "I like it that way", and take my comments in the spirit they were intended - trying to make you look better. Feel free to ignore them if you like, but I felt like I had to say something since no one else really is.

Best,
The Bad Guy

I agree that this jacket has a fair amount of padding relatively to some of my others, but I think the dent in the top of the sleeves has to do with the lack of pressing. This jacket does not look like the other Canali I posted pictures of in terms of the shoulder padding. That said, I haven't decided what I think about the look of the shoulders in this particular jacket. When I was looking at it this morning the shoulders seemed nicely roped but I agree that the amount of shoulder padding could be causing some issues.

I think that's the case, but this could also be a case of arm angle, because when I was wearing this jacket last night with a polo I noted that the sleeve length came exactly to the base of my wrist. YOu could be right regarding the shoulder padding.

I disagree regarding jacket length, I feel it's more or less perfect for my purposes, although it could concievably be a bit short for wearing slightly longer shirts untucked. Regarding the button stance and position, I agree that it's not an extremely modern cut, but I have a lot of jackets and there is a time and place for each of them. I really like the texture of this jacket and the buttons which isn't very visible from the pictures.

I find this comment a bit surprising because I feel these jeans are slim but the fit is essentially exactly what I want, but thats most likely because I do not want my jeans to be relaxed in the top block whatsoever and is likely a matter of personal taste. I think these particular jeans may potentially be my best fitting pair, but as I said, it's likely opinion, because many people have commented that the Uniqlo pair I posted is a very good fit, which I don't particularly agree with, and feel that it's a nice relaxed and comfortable jean but not ideal in terms of fit (although the color post wash is spectaular which is the main reason I enjoy and wear them so often).

I do agree that this outfit does not look good (top part-for the reasons you mentionned) but apart from the way the jeans are weirdly bunched at the knees (maybe get them shortened or might be how they're bunched in this particular picture) I do believe most of the jeans Drizzt post fit him quite well for what he's going for, which I believe is something along the line of showing off his physique but in a more discreet and dressy way than say a big guy with a tight muscle tee and dior19cm jeans.

I really liked his Oxxford jacket but the latest acquisitions have been errors IMHO as the shoulders and body have been somewhat off. That being said I do believe I am probably one of the only posters here that enjoys seeing people go against the grain of men's dressing and play of their proportions instead of going for an idealized look of what a man in suit should look like.

I think it could be the picture primarily because one of the things I liked most about the 5EP was the fact that they weren't baggy through the knee. I haven't shortened this particular pair, although I probably should, because I typically don't like stacking with how I wear my jeans.

I should probably go for jackets with a more natural shoulder and double vent ideally, it's kinda strange though, because in some cases very structured shoulders seem to work well for me, although you'd think they wouldn't (i.e. Brioni) but in some cases, not so much (like these two Canali jackets) It could be more a factor of how the shoulder is structured rather than whether there is structure at all. In any case, determining which shoulders are suitable for me is an ongoing process. Strangely enough, my Canali mainline suit fits me quite well in the shoulder, maybe its just the padding in the Proposta line. I might stick with Brioni and Saint Andrews for Italian jackets from now on, though.

I hem or cuff all jeans that aren't really tappered, say everything above a 7.5" hem, as bigger openings stack in really weird ways IMHO. Of course this doesn't help you much as you probably can barely put your fist in a 7.5" opening but still, with the kind of jeans you wear and the style you're going for I'd say hemming all pairs is pretty much required.

a quick one before heading out.



new tops and same old jeans, waiting for my SJDJ

Yeah, I should probably do that to the 5EP.
