    That kind of cardigan (bulkier cut, bigger knit) is supposed to look a bit big, more like a jacket than a sweater. It would look wrong if you sized down.

    I can suggest a few simple ways to make it look better. First, always button it at least partially, and never wear it open, at least if you're concerned about how it looks. Next, if you're wearing a dress shirt or other button-down long sleeve, tuck it in, even with jeans. Nothing looks sloppier than an untucked shirt sticking out of a sweater. Also, wear darker and slimmer jeans, something that fits you well. Another way is to wear trousers or khakis. They don't have to be real dressy, but they should fit well.

    You don't have to wear a dress shirt though. A nice, well-fitting, clean t-shirt in a color that works with cardigan would also look good. Again, though, don't wear it open. Do at least some buttons. There are really no rules about which buttons on a cardigan have to be buttoned, so play around with it and see what you like best.

    +1, but try buttoning two more buttons on top, and unbutton the last button on the bottom. And take the eyeglasses case out of the pocket.

    Thanks for the advise. i was on my way to work. Glasses had to go in there quickly. And I got the bottom button undone now, next three buttoned, top 2 unbutton. I dont know if i like the popped collar though...

    I bought this on Gilt and the sizing was whack, i like the sweater but may return it if everyone thinks its too big (which I do too).

    People, not everything is meant to fit skin tight. If this bucks the trend, it's appropriate. I refer you to the above as an example that this is not so much "pulled off" as just "right."

    You need to relax about what other people think and just think about whether you're comfortable with the fit. If you think going a size down would still be comfortable without looking like you're trying to fit into something too small, go for it. I personally think you're just wearing it wrong at the moment (i.e., not wearing with the right clothes).

    The thing with sweaters is that there's a little more range of fit that's "acceptable" as compared to the way shirts and jackets fit.

    Saw this in the Atlanta RRL and it actually looked pretty good. It was washed/faded out in a good way, and I wondered if the letters might be removed easily.

    Still expensive, though.

    Experimental Fit: Would appreciate feedback

    Thoughts? I know the sleeves are short and they're intended to be, but the question is...Bad or good? Would appreciate suggestions on shoes as well

    If you think Davidko's fit looks similar to the Satorialist pic, please go have your eyes checked.

    The fit of the jeans is good. The shoes, medallion and marching band(?) jacket aren't working. I can't tell about the shirt, is it just a plain black v-neck? edit: Why are you wearing a marching band jacket?

    Haven't posted anything in awhile, so here's a picture my friend took of me yesterday. Not really a fit pic, but I thought it was kinda cool.

    What state is this in? I know a park that looks a lot like it.

    It's refreshing and I like where you're headed. Has a very Margiela vibe. However you're not there yet. The medallion has to go as do the trainers (I would swap them for brown loafers or simple brown laceups). Also a buttonup would be better then a t-shirt, but I think you could stay with the same color scheme. Remember when you wear a bold piece (the jacket) it's important to tone everything else down.

    They're not the only ones.

    Oh SNAP!



    Andrewryanwallace reminds me a lot of Augusto in that pic. *shudders*

    I'll admit it's not as good. Why don't you explain why this is? How are they different?

    Slyce, who makes the jeans? They're good but I'd want them just an inch or two shorter, I think.

    While I like Tigers, I think they look too "dirty" for the crisp look of the white jeans.

    Not feeling the jacket and medallion at all, I'm afraid. Feels rather Sgt Pepper-era hippie to me.
