    Thanks! I'm slowly trying to dress more sober and businesslike so I get used to it before I start working again in the summer. I'm finding out I really enjoy the more understated colour palettes.

    Yea I dunno why it irks me so much. Rest assured it really wasn't aimed at RTC. In fact I had typed up something similar weeks ago and then refained from posting it. I see it a bunch, in fact every time I see it, it like punches me right in the face.

    I started thinking about how to pit it into words after stichy called out SB on a shirt that he was wearing not having enough texture. SB posted a joking Morpheus saying that perhaps the shirt had more texture and that the picture just wasn't showing it. Stichy said he believed him and SB revealed that in fact the shirt looked how stichy thought it did to begin with.

    That little goofy exchange (I quite enjoyed tbh, as it felt like a little poke at the justification I always see on here, whether SB intended that or not I'm unsure.) got me to thinking more about this issue and so I put it into words.

    I generally lose respect for a poster every time they do this and they seem more immature to me. I don't want to lose respect for you guys. I like you guys; so I thought I'd bring it up. Probably the problem resides in me and I need to get over myself. Please don't change anything about yourselves just to please me (not that anyone would), but I thought if others saw it as an issue then we could potentially bring awareness to it and seek to improve both the character of the posters, and the quality of this thread.

    What's the difference between justifying and disagreeing? I just don't agree with people sometimes. We can all agree to disagree on some of the finer points of menswear. At the end of the day, this is all subjective aesthetics. I respect people who have a point of view and are willing to discuss it. Ok. Off to dinner. Night, gents.

    Another jeans fit from me. RL Polo BD shirt collars doesn't roll very good, so I kept it unbuttoned:

    Jeebus. Tie and jacket when you're out in the woods?
    The rest of the world probably thinks the lot of us is insane.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I didn't take it personally, so no worries there.

    I like this thread for a few reasons, the obvious one being a lot of good fits, and the more personal ones being that people will actually try to help you if you're receptive to it. I know some of the 'faults' in my choices (i.e. collars), but some of the fixes are easier than others such as pairings. I wouldn't say I'm on the same level as many of the posters here, but there's definitely a big divide between trying to emulate and doing so while putting yourself out there and leaving yourself open to criticism.

    I know I can do a lot better with the little that I have already (well I have a shit ton of ties...) and putting myself on here is a way to learn because I actually take the criticism. That's also why I don't post fits every day. There hasn't been push back here since I actually try so I'm hoping to keep using it as a sounding board and learning.

    Nah, where we live it's not that uncommon. "The woods" are actually just a few minutes from central Stockholm.

    Hmmm, I had to crawl inside the organ to tighten a slack tracker. I must have gotten dust on my jacket.

    I've asked this question before on a different thread but was wondering what your opinions on this are. @luv2breformed already stated his case so this will be a deja vu of sorts for him.

    Do you think there's a high utility of black PTB's in CM or are they sort of stuck in nowheres-ville? I feel like I rarely see them on any fits here.

    Thanks.

    I think that really comes down to a personal preference. If you like black shoes with SC/odd pants, then they can be worn with about any suit, or SC. Obviously if you prefer brogues with a SC, then they would be less versatile for you. In continental Europe, I understand they are also considered acceptable with Black Tie, White Tie, and Morning Dress, so arguably more versatile over there. In lower end shoes (which I can afford) I often find that bluchers are more comfortable than Oxfords. I have a high bone on top of my foot, right under the laces, so, if the leather is quite stiff, I find I can adjust a blucher better, without leaving as obvious a gap as I would with Oxfords, so I would likely add a pair if I found a good deal on some that fit well.

    Went to NYC today and an amazing thing happened as I was standing outside of Penn Station.

    Random dude comes up to me and says, you're on StyleForum right?

    I say yes, I am.

    He says, I KNEW IT! I recognized you right away.

    Amazaballs!!

    Sup, @GM-H !!
