    Looks great. Just about perfect for a classroom...just enough ruggedness to handle chalkdust and teenage angst. Deets on the pants, shoes please.

    I like the shoe, cool color and adds a pop of interesting in my mind. Wish the teachers out her would wear a tie!

    Gents,
    I can not thank you enough for the inspiration this thread has given me. Having said that, I would like a critique (fit, color combos, etc.) on my first offering to WAYWRN. I have thick skin so please let me know what you think. I'll never be Vox [​IMG] , but with a little help, my attire may be less offensive.[​IMG]

    PS. Shoes are vintage Florsheim Imperials. Thrifted for $10!!!

    Thanks all for opinion on a collar of my shirt! I think that now I can really make the correct decision. Anyway, I have received a lot of information for reflexion.[​IMG]

    In my opinion, I thought you were smashing. I try not linger too much on the details. It is important but I tend to like viewing the forest than the trees.

    BTW, my cap was by Block NYC.

    BTW, I would change the jacket to the ensemble say something just a tad more casual/unstructured and it would be golden for me. Alternatively a more casual tie for this jacket would work. I like it.
    To my eye, the top is too dressed up for the bottom. I'm not a fan of the color of the shoes.
    Nice looking jacket, but would be much better as a suit (and brown shoes). Looks like an orphan to me esp. with the jeans.
    I think everything works but the baby blue jeans. If you had a darker wash jean, then I'd be a fan. I do like the shoes in that context - I can't say I'd pick them up off the shelf though.

    If you feel that there is not enough criticism here, then start sharing it, cos i know that is one of the main reasons i post here (and why i hope a lot of people are posting) ... Edit - for example ... AJV just said PG's fit is perfect ... i totally disagree ... and i wont hesitate to point that out. PG is a great dresser, but that is nowhere near a perfect fit for him.
    - you have a point here, but most here won't take criticism well & most here appear to think this is some cake baking competition. - I know there is a certain SF aesthetic here, but I for one am liking wearing my suits fuller at the moment - especially when it is hot & that I am gaining extra body mass
    I think the points of your shirt collar should be covered by your jacket, that is a better visual effect. In IST's case, not only the points are not covered, they look like pencil in the glass. I am not going to say anything about that huge knot, double FIH or whatever that is,it looks awful. Longer and more spread collar will look better, in my opinion.
    - I agree
    By the way, I agree with your assessment of Phat's suits. I prefer his slimmer fits of last year better.
    - Phats getting FAT
    Curious to hear feedback on this:
    - top don't mix with the bottom - shoes don't fit in at all

    I enjoy reading this thread for inspiration. However, the lack of criticism is starting to make it boring. Even I see certain things I don't like about people's ensembles, and I'm nowhere near the likes of most stylish people posting here.

    IST66, отлично одеваешься! Пожалуй, лучше всех здесь. И уж точно не как старый дед выглядишь.

    1. Replace tee-shirt with oxford cloth button down in solid white or light blue.
    2. Replace Miller Lite with Budweiser in can for more "Trad" look

    Well - then that sounds like you are going out of your way to not match - which i find more affected than matching. Why go the extra effort to find a belt in a "slightly" different shade just to prove you are not anal retentive/OCD? I hear this comment every now and then and it baffles me. I always learnt to dress with matching belt and shoes ... and although a slight variation in color is allowed, it should be the exception and not the norm. Also, you must not be familiar with WAYWRN. Silence typically is the form of criticism here. In general ... if something is average, slightly bad or just enh people dont quote or talk about it ... if something is REALLY nice, people complement it effusively ... and if something sucks big time people rip it to shreds. And if something sucks or isnt as great as the complement it is receiving ... someone usually steps up and points that out. If you feel that there is not enough criticism here, then start sharing it, cos i know that is one of the main reasons i post here (and why i hope a lot of people are posting) ... Also, your comments/criticisms will hold more weight if you actually post pictures to give people an idea of your sense of style Edit - for example ... AJV just said PG's fit is perfect ... i totally disagree ... and i wont hesitate to point that out. PG is a great dresser, but that is nowhere near a perfect fit for him. [​IMG]
    WAYWRN - not enough real criticism - too much bukkake. That said, I liked PG's look - trou long for my taste, but I don't mind the sackier fits. Now that I am finally realizing that slim ≠ better, I have began to appreciate well fitting, yet more classically preportioned, garments. I wish that I had gotten more criticism about a year ago. I am severely culling my clothes now b/c of fits - TaT and RLBL just don't appeal to me nowadays. I look at shots of myself and find me looking quite silly. ...or perhaps I was being told, but was refusing to listen... [​IMG]
