    pretty much the opposite of sex.

    when I see this, the very last thing I want to know is how you look naked.

    Well, that makes one of us. [​IMG]

    That was a fucking weird comment.

    The button up, I think, could be disposed of safely.


    Eh, I think the button-up vaguely meshes with the jacket, since the former mostly just looks like a blue button-up and the latter is sort-of-maybe prep-ish, in that it's basically a navy blazer, even if it's an unconventional and ultra-cropped version thereof.

    If anything, it makes the top half contrast more with the bottom half, with the Silent tee acting as peacemaker betwixt the two.

    Agree that it would be a different fit without it, though.

    That cropped blazer has no real lapels (they're inset) and epaulet-ish details and banded cuffs and waist, no to mention the flap chest pocket; it's more of a play on a military uniform jacket than a blazer. It does work okay with a button up I just don't think it does so with the light-pant-tucked-into-training-boot thing.

    Dunno if youre being sarcastic here but theres literally nothing inconsistent about those statements. One concerns how people think men who value the way they look are "gay" or feminine. The other concerns people who dress like the opposite sex being rejected from society in an unfair way. Get more reading comprehension skills brotha.

    You posted a few days ago that "anyone who thinks that dudes posting on a forum about fashion and style is girly or gay is an immature redneck." Yet you later vocalize your pity for Uncontrol, who "so obviously wants to be female." This assertion, by the way, is based on nothing other than his personal style. Unless you're an "immature redneck," your posts are non-cohesive contradictions...brotha.

    Clothes aren't supposed to make you think of the other person naked. If that was the point, why would people wear clothes to begin with?

    So themselves is either someone's alt account or a generally angry dude, because nearly all of his posts involve him deriding someone in this thread.

    Huh, on my end it kinda looks like there are lapels (albeit thin ones), and I'm not seeing the passants. Probably just an old man's cataracts acting up. I can see where you're coming from in terms of a military-inspired jacket + cargo pants + boot tuck maybe not meshing 100% with a blue button-up, though. edit:
    ^ the jeans are nice by themselves but everything together is very boring.
    Since when are raw jeans, chucks, and a chambray less than thrilling? [​IMG] And c'mon, they're selvage!

    I actually really like the button-up in Synth's fit. With it on, the top's got a slight biz-cash feel, but then you look at the whole thing and it turns into slight biz-cash-gonna-fuck-yr-girl-in-the-office vibe.

    The button-down and Cloak blazer are too fitting/structured compared to the free-flowing tee. I think the Cloak piece would complement the tee well, but the inclusion of the button-down in between those layers is creating this jarring wedge effect.
