    i like those trousers, but i'd remove the cuff or tidy it up a bit.


    BTW, you look like a very prominent member here, which bodes well for you. Check out the fits by Barims if you haven't already. You guys have the same lips and facial hair and skin colour. His fits are pretty inspiring.


    Edit: Oh i see you joined in 2009 so have probably already seen him, you were just lurking.

    I don't like the big bulky boots/ boot tuck with the hoody. Or your emo ground look. Look up little buddy.

    i left the boots untied at the top two eyelets and tied the laces tight around the ankle to create that f+b effect. it prob would of looked neater if i had tied them all the way up.

    Yeah the cuff was necessary because they're long as heck and the buttons for my braces (which normally puts them above my natural waist) popped while I was pulling some acrobatic photography (don't ask). I plan to get them taken up a couple of inches as to not look entirely as sloppy.

    I kind of like the long hem on those herringbone tweeds the way they are.

    So you're saying he should dress like another black guy on here on the basis that they share an ethnicity, in spite of the fact that this du's style appears to be completely different?

    I saw that post and was like [​IMG] To be fair, we do make lots of comments cross-sectioning race and ethnicity with clothing choices (skinny azns, etc.)

    haha nah, at first i noted that he looks like Barims, which he does, at least in that photo. Then i was saying that Barims is the man, and since his post count was low i assumed he was a noob and that Barims is a great fit poster to check out, as a sort of side note.

    I wasn't implying that he should copy his style or anything like that. Although some of the colour schemes might be useful since they have the same skin tone.


    so rather than "you look like barims, you should dress like him"

    it was meant more like "you look like Barims, who is by the way awesome and you should check him out"

    The lips comment is Xeno "smooth chocolate skin"-worthy.

    I don't get it why would you post that? You have no aesthetic direction at all.

    I know. I"m new to this game, just trying to see what I should change to make things a little better. I would think the weakest part of this fit is the shoes (I mean, the sweater/pants aren't exactly exciting, but I don't think they are bad). What kind of shoes would fit good in something like this? Do sneakers look alright or should I be looking at something else?

    And assuming you don't have $350 to spend on a pair of trainers, even a simple pair of Vans would be better than those.

    Then hem those trousers and get a plain, simple crew neck that fits.
