Jason: I approve of the wide cuffs.

Exactly. It makes for a crappy thread. Also, I feel like *anyone* can dress themself. They might not be able to afford the kind of shit you or GS wear, but putting on clothing and putting together your wardobe is something every person does throughout their lives. It's not something that the average person doesn't have the means to set a good example if you can (unlike say, art criticism or film criticism). Thus, to me, if you don't have the back-up of your own good style, you shouldn't be constantly making it your business to critique others' fits. It's fine to post a couple constructive criticisms when it's warranted. We've never had anyone in this thread that I'm aware of be constantly negative and never post their own fits, so I'm not really concerned about this issue. When it comes to drizzt's fits which is what spurred this discussion, it's fine because people are giving honest and understandable opinions about the bad aspects and it's tangible critiquing that can lead to improvement (or just throwing out that Canali jacket, which I wouldn't be opposed to )

Hehe, I guess we'll have to see if that Canali jacket is beyond salvage. I might have my tailor see what they can do with it. In any case, today's offering. Hate away.

H&M black/white gingham minicheck short sleeve
Belvest navy jacket with electric blue windowpane pattern (subtle)
RRL slim fit
Paul Smith monks

^^Very nice.

Drizzt, I've been seeing your pics here and there, and I have to say, this is the best fit so far.
post #9981 of 11974
This and the grey suit are a big improvement. I would look for some slightly looser fitting jeans, though. You have quite a big chest and shoulders, and the slim fit of them makes you look rather top heavy.

The RRLs (along with Mics and SDAs) are among my slimmer fitting jeans but I prefer the look to more relaxed cuts, generally, because I can't stand bagginess in jeans at all, I think it looks sloppy. I should probably hem them, because the stacking isn't conducive to the dressy looks I usually incorporate them with. This is as relaxed as I get with denim for the most part, but I prefer something a bit more slim. Once I get my larger sized mics back from the tailor those will probably be my go to dressy jean.

Shirt... sleeve... length. Great shoes though.

Which picture are you talking about, the one directly above this post (with the Saint Andrews) or the one with the Belvest jacket?

The one with the Saint Andrews has essentially perfect sleeve length, IMO (base of the wrist) while the jacket is slightly higher to show 0.75" of cuff.

In the picture with the Belvest, I'm wearing a short sleeved shirt...

(In lieu of quoting the pic.)

That fit, with the slightly wider jeans, has some of the best proportions I've ever seen in one of your posts, IMO. The slightly wider lower leg of the jeans does a lot to balance out your shoulders. I like it!

+1 Though the shirt looks too tight due to the pulling at the buttons. GS - That's the slim look done right, and the the tie bar is fantastic. I think the button down collar is a curious choice, however, considering how modern the rest of the look is.

I kinda agree, which is why I think the 5EP LDB are some of the better jeans for me, I like jeans to be fitted in the lower leg but widen slightly to accomodate boots etc. I think these particular RRLs if they have a drawback is the slightly narrow hem, but they do accomodate my calves comfortably so I don't mind them. I think these Uniqlos look good too, they're one of my favorite not necessarily because of the fit (which I like, but I'm not crazy about the higher rise) but because of the color, which is an amazing blue/purple. I'll post pics of the Acne Mics where I didn't size down when I get them back, which I think look really really good. The sized down Mics are still slim although they may stretch a bit, and I don't feel comfortable wearing them in a dressier outfit.

That's a Barba in my neck size (at least when I bought it), and it's pretty slim but I don't think its too tight. I think it's improperly tucked which may have resulted in the "pulling" that you noticed. I posted the same shirt in the picture that everyone hated with the black jacket a few days ago and it was fine. On a slightly related note, my neck size appears to have increased 0.5" over the past few months of lifting which is annoying. That Barba which is a 43 (17") is really tight in the neck and isn't really appropriate for use with a tie. Luckily my Charvet bespoke shirts have a slightly roomier neck for comfort which is somewhat less roomy now but still fits.

You're right on in that second picture: Absolutely perfect. Oops, i thought i saw a little bit of cuff inside your jacket sleeve. I must have been distracted trying to look for the electric blue in that picture: still can't see it. Very subtle indeed. Though, I never really got into short sleeve button ups. I always end up thinking of Dwight from The Office.

GS i would love to see a picture of that suit while youre standing with the entire outfit, great fit as always
