    Waffle are those your balls or camel toe? The ridiculously short jacket makes your already elongated self look otherwordly, like an extra in Avatar sans blue skin. You should consider a more balanced outfit the next time you venture out of the Gaia.

    your jeans are hemmed like dress pants. I am not talking about the break -- there is no visible stitching at the hem. That looks odd to me.

    ah, I see. They are actually not hemmed, just folded up. I have been putting off getting them done, then just sort of forgot. Now that it has been brought to my attention, maybe I'll finally have them hemmed.

    Same thought I had.

    The shoes also screamed 'old man' to me. It can be subjective on my part, but I like all style of dress shoes...wing tips, cap toes, Norwegian welt, etc. except for that style.

    I actually like the cardigan and the pattern of the tie.

    If the age Moo stated is true, then I'm around your bracket too for what it's worth.


    I think tassel loafer have that effect on a lot of people. I like them and have seen them on young people. Not that it matters, but it seems like I see them all the time on American Prep fashion blogs, and some of the Italian-centric ones.

    love the tie, wish it were slimmer though i think that would help a lot. if you dont want stacks you gotta go a whole lot darker than that in terms of wash


    Thanks. I love the tie as well. Its only 3 inches wide, which as about where I like my ties, excluding knits which I like a bit narrower.


    What is the rational for no stack requiring a darker wash? That doesn't make sense to me. I wouldn't want any of my pants to be too long, regardless of color.

    there is no camel toe there. its clearly just the way the jeans fold when standing still. the jacket looks great i think. italian style tailoring. seems like youre just knocking someone for the point of it. are you short by any chance?

    Incorrect. The jacket looks tiny on his long frame. It is not a good look for him. I am likely shorter than him, but not short by the standard of height in my country.

    lol ~

    it is destiny

    edit-you think that colorblock shirt would not fit? so sad. I have a 40 (spring) that fits and a 40 (fall) that doesnt (in my FS threak). I was hoping that yours would run on the larger side, since it is spring collection.


    my bad i been bad about responding to pms i'll get you and other homie some measurements

    gimme your cardi, it should be big on you no? please tell me yes

    Nice fit Johan.. I don't mind a half zip sweater, I don't understand all the hate. I think a bit of it is mob mentality.

    It is not unfounded they look dumb as fuck.

    Moo is either trolling or he's about to have a total breakdown.

    Catching up.

    Thanks for the feedback folks.

    I really enjoy your posts...this look is great!

    Pretty solid fit but I think you should avoid stripes. They draw attention to your chest.

    Totally disagree...

    +1 good to have mok on this side of the forum

    I'm gonna go with sexonfabric here, and say that MoK looks pretty good in stripes.

    wtf is wrong with his chest?

    also, MOK- just say trousers.


    Your stuff continues to impress; your last few have been really good.

    I think the striped shirt is creating the same effect, although it could also be how the jacket is lying... But I think a solid shirt might of worked better in this situation.

    +1 to others, excellent

    Thanks guys. I think it's more the 'V' the jacket creates with the hands in pockets that emphasises the chest rather than the stripes. Still it could be worse it could be emphasising my beer gut. [​IMG]

    One of my favourite fits from the past 10 pages.
    and here is today (beach day, sort of):

    The choice of socks elevates this look.

    I'm sure if you asked nicely someone would donate an old shirt.

    Not a fan of the cap, but clever photo.

    New day, new fit. Univ. fit btw. Ha, alright so what is wrong today?

    MMM

    Nothing wrong, not a lot to say really other than fit on the jeans looks good.

    T shirt is actually a slightly darker/less pinkish red than it appears here (at least on my monitor).

    Does look a bit pink - I'm guessing it's closer to the sole stripe on the sneakers?

    too clean / tight probably
    Missed this - I'm assuming you were referring to my fit?

    Not sure what you mean by too 'clean' but I can see why you might think that the fit of the T shirt is a bit tight.. It's kind of stretchy and sitting down emphasises that. This is an identical T shirt in a different colour, worn with the same jeans but standing up:

    Wow, good eye.. it is indeed closer to the sole stripe red IRL.

    0b5 is definitely not a troll.


    * * *

    As some of you might have noticed, Friday is Challenge Day in MC.
    The challenges are not restricted to MC, SW&D can play as well, for
    instance in Friday's Challenge:


    The Big styleforum...

    [​IMG]

    ... Jacket* and Jeans Challenge

    I'm apparently vain enough to post pictures of myself on
    the Internet, but naming a challenge after myself is a bit
    too much, even for me. So I gave it another name...

    This is basically my daily uniform and I'm curious to see what
    other people make of it. It's not really an SF approved look
    (maybe it is aj_del approved), but the challenge is to make it
    look good, like Andy here.

    The * is important: by jacket I mean sports coat (or suit
    coat...), and only that. By jeans I mean jeans, raw, medium,
    well-done, whatever you like.

    Have fun (or should I say: be educational) and good luck!

    Oh yes, I don't really care what day of the week you wear
    it, just post it on Friday. (Unless of course Spoo overrules me,
    which he's fully entitled to"”thus, up to Spoo.)

    Hope to see many 'contestants' (including SW&D guys,
    so please climb over the fence for this one),

    - NOBD




    Hope to see some of you guys in the challenge.
    Just post your pics in MC's WAYWRN on Friday. Thanks.

    Your opinion of my feet notwithstanding (and I admit I wouldn't normally post a barefoot pic - it was just one I had handy with the right clothes), those aren't Levi's and the tee is not from Gap. Thanks for commenting.

    Thanks NOBD... and finally, a Friday challenge I can take part in! [​IMG]

    Finally finished moving. Maybe you can tell from this pic, but I don't live in a bootleg 80s apartment anymore (I'm also paying six times the rent..) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nicelynice, you usually do it very good, but that one is just a clash of very nice individually pieces that doesnt work together.

    IMO in most cases Rick Owens high-tops require more RO stuff to work
