    Next time, cover your face when posting in a place like this.

    He did escape the usual profiling on SF...

    Of course, fit pics aren't SF appropriate unless taken in front of a bathroom mirror...

    Currently, I live in the third world country. Over here, when I see people wearing clothes and accessories which has the slogan of the brand name all over their wardrobe, I immediately think that they are fakes simply because a lot of the brands that I see today, mostly high end, tend me to more conservative. I would use Zegna as an example.
    His shirt is a $5 fake piece of shit. Is this the new SF? Someone proudly posts a godawful knockoff and 80% of respondents have absolutely no idea? It's still entirely possible OP is a troll, but all these business-as-usual responses ("a little too baggy") are making me think I'm in some kind of crazy collaborative online test of my own sanity.

    I'm not pounding my keyboard in rage [​IMG] but honestly I am irked that half this forum could look at those pictures and then calmly point him to SW&D. If you're not going to say anything constructive ("maybe buy something you can afford because it fits you") or brutally critical ("good god your person as photographed constitutes an insult to refined sensibilities"), there is no legitimate response to this thread except Alfamale's:

    Pointing him to SW&D is constructive. To wit, one of the only constructive options.

    Side note: Style is not just clothing, it's attitude too. A penchant for cruelty will undermine anything you wear.

    +1 Especially when its a young guy trying to get some advice. You guys wouldn't clown on someone who walked up to you on the street and asked you for advice would you?

    This thread should have been short: OP asks a Q, two or three people say "it fits ok. You should go to SW&D" or "you should lurk for a while to learn."

    Just my two cents

    I wouldn't clown on someone who walked up to me on the street and asked for advice? First off, WTF does clown mean? Second, if a stranger asked me for advice on the street I would tell them to Go F themself. This kid deserves no less venom than HermesMan. If he had taken the time to do some research here on the site and looked at the other threads, this would have been avoided.
    Lastly, villians often have the best clothing/costumes so a bad attitude doesn't effect appearance IMO.

    I think Hermesman is operating on a much different scale. This dude just showed up with one awful t-shirt.

    You're spot on...

    Being a supposed Igent means being a Gent in the first place...

    You can have a laugh at somebody wearing a decent combo but in that case , I don't see the point.

    Hermesman is a diiferent kettle of fish...

    This guy is just asking for advice...

    Don't do it Bro. It screams " I'm wearing something expensive to try to prove something to everyone" kind of look. The shirt has too many designs as well. If your still confident in it, that shirt with a pair of dark denim and more color than just brown will do you justice....

    Perhaps Hermesman is worse, however, as I previously posted, a bit of due dilligence goes a long way. I was a member here for months before I even considered posting anything. That should be the norm. One should know the audience before addressing it. The laziness is what I took issue with.

    I plan to wear this on the street, in class, and the occasional party. Do you think shirt is complimenting my short, slim frame? I'll be wearing them with straight leg dark blue jeans dark blue jeans.
