    I have five guitars in the living room...
    Sorry. Derailing the thread because I know you from SDUGF. Back on topic, I think the outfit looks a bit blockish. Maybe something more tapered in the denim, and the shirt could be longer to accentuate your height.

    Opinions here? Mind you i'm 6'3" and wear a size 14 shoe [​IMG] so finding clothes is a bit more difficult and stuff fits different.

    Tips on to improve on?


    Shirt fit is boxy, take it to a tailor and for $15 or something they can take in the sides a bit.

    Jeans look good.

    Lose the sketchers, there are better shoes. Shit's tough at sz. 14 I imagine... but Vans and Converse make size 14+

    That shirt is one of the worst. More length, actual shape, longer sleeves

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Blazer and jeans: does it ever work? I remember fuuma pulled it off very well the other day, but that's to be expected of the dude.

    i think blazer + tshirt is the real problem there.

    also, imo if you want to do blazer + jeans, your best bet is probably to buy a blazer with a less fine fabric, if you know what i mean. one that looks more casual and less like part of a suit, so it doesn't draw such a stark contrast between the fine fabric of the jacket and the rough fabric of the denim.

    faded (or prefaded) jeans also dont help unless you know what you're doing

    super nice lapel roll on that blazer, what is it?

    tee should be V-neck.

    Need to see footwear.

    Please shave.

    I suck at taking fit pics, so yeah, it's hard to see what kind of fabric the blazer is. It's actually kind of rough and not as fine as the pictures suggest.

    But can't I wear a t-shirt with a blazer? Or faded jeans? [​IMG] It looks kinda off with a dress shirt unless it's one with a semi-spread or spread collar, which are both too formal for this outfit. I could wear jet black jeans, but that's kinda boring.

    I'll try to take fit pics again with me wearing a v-neck. Shoes are white Achilles los. Sorry, I don't wear shoes in the house (though I agree that it would definitely help to see footwear). And I'll shave right after I finish writing this post. Thanks!

    BTW, the blazer's MTM from a Bangkok tailor. Really nice piece, smoke MOP buttons, half-canvassed, etc. If you're interested, PM me for more info and I'll see what I can do.

    It's a nice blazer. I'm unsure whether it's too big for you or not though: shoulders seem to be hanging off a bit, sleeves look wide, chest seems roomy, etc. Could just be the pic/pose/unbuttoning.

    It's mainly the pose that makes the blazer look too big - it actually fits me pretty well and has some room to accommodate a light/medium-weight sweater. The v-neck I'm wearing is thin and a tad sheer, so that might've also made it look overly large. The shoulders are quite structured though - I may have to take it to the tailor to get it altered.

    Thanks bows [​IMG] Yes, the blazer's quite tapered. Definitely not for those with large thighs.
