    T-shirt tuck doesn't work (As if it ever does). Opinions?

    No it doesnt. the only time (and this is debateable) that a t tuck work is if you were wearing your 1460 boots

    I dont like the high cuff'd pants with those wingtips. I think that look can work with a heavier shoe like the 1461, but even double soled longwings are too delicate looking. and I'd lower the high water a bit so about 1-1.5" of sock shows, that's too high as you got it there IMO

    My proportions always look weird to me too, for that matter. I'm 5'8, ~172 lbs, but I have short stubby legs for my height. When I wear shirts that come up to my beltline correctly, I look strangely leggy.

    I always just thought it was my Body Dysmorphic Disorder acting up, but now that I have confirmation from you, I have a real reason to get distressed!


    Funny you mention your measurements tagutcow...i have the exact same measurements as you-stubby legs too unfortunately.

    anyways here's my fit for the day. i'm quite excited that it's finally getting chilly here in LA [​IMG]

    I think it's been said, but Labelking would make a great Bond villain. Kunk, too.

    Not actually doing anything today so I'm throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks..


    Hey without the hat & glasses you are a good looking guy. Maybe some contacts?

    Hmm, yes, yes, I agree. Here's the shirt untucked and the cuff taken down a bit.

    I can't help but feel like a hipster in this, though. All it needs is a pair of canvas sneakers and a week or so of facial growth and I'd be wearing the uniform. No offense to any hipsters present!

    Haha, uh, thanks? Contacts aren't an option unfortunately, I have really sensitive eyes and possibly some kind of phobia about sticking things in/on them. I want to get some frames that better fit my style eventually, but that shit is expensive.

    Yeah mid-Michigan hipsters are of a lower caliber.. Graphic tee, skinny jeans, chucks, weak beard and unkempt hair. Cold weather, add a mall pea coat and a houndstooth scarf.

    Edit: METICULOUSLY unkempt hair.

    Teger I need to apologize to you because up until like two days ago my visual image of you I had in my head was that you were Tagutcow and I was like "that's cool someone thought my joke was funny enough to put in their sig but I wish it would have been someone who didn't have such a terrible haircut". Incidentally, sorry Tagutcow [​IMG]

    hahahha I should scan some pictures from high school when I had a lacrosse mullet

    How is it too small? Look at the sleeves, shoulders, the chest-- none of it suggests smallness. I mean, I guess it's a bit tight, but not excessively so.

    The only buttons that are buttoned are puckering. I'd call that excessively tight.

    The fabric is all fuzzy and pilling.

    Shirt needs to be a thinner fabric (hint: Hanes doesn't work for much more than undershirts) and your hair needs to be thinned and trimmed shorter to avoid the bowling ball you're wearing as a helmet.

    Good start, though.

    BB belt
    Alden Indys

    Self-critique, yeah, the shirt's too baggy, although my stance is accentuating that. With the slimmer jeans something that matches better with the fit of the jeans would be better. The shirt doesn't look bad with my (looser) khakis, cords, etc.

    Baby steps, guys, baby steps.

    Not bad but agree on the shirt and pants are little high. I get a baron-esque vibe from this including the location and stance.

    Monocle and glasses? A bit redundant, no?

    Everything else is great, especially the boutonnière.


    I have monocular moods--if I'm feeling arrogant/Teutonic, I'll forgo the glasses, and wear the monocle

    AlanC, the jeans are a nice relaxed fit on you. Pull them down an inch or two, and they'll look better at the waistline and you'll also have a more appropriate amount of break for denim.

    I say size down one or two in the shirt and you're about good to go. The pants are fine, maybe high for some people but if you're comfortable with them there, it's not a problem.
