    I agree. It's a good fit better than most but not his best by a long a shot.

    I have, those get boring though Is the problem with my "jorts" in particular or "jorts" in general If it's the former I'm all ears, if it's the latter tough titties
    A) Jorts look bad 99% of the time B) Yours look most especially horrendous

    I figured my best fits were probably the recent suit fits but I'll take what I can get.
    Some amazing fits posted in the last few days. aeglus - Made props on the fit and simplicity. What brand is the tee?
    thanks it's a muji small cotton stripe shirt (has lots of really thin horizontal stripes in blue) and it is probably my best fitting shirt because muji vnecks still don't taper quite enough.
    Lacoste Rag & Bone Sperry baby Ellsworth Kelly
    best buy steeze
    baby looks cool though

    I think the jorts you currently have need to be burned.
    disagree with van Witzlebean - I think sneakers (which should be white anyway) are just shoes, and should not be prematurely worn out - I just cleaned my white Achilles lows today with a magic eraser because I like crisp ass white sneakers. If we all lived in Paris or London where every possible place was photogenic and made H+M look cool, I might cross over to the dirty side, but I prefer me some clean sneakers and relatively clean dress shoes as well. There's no reason to be dirty.
    I find brand new sneakers really throw a fit off. Kelvin's mmms looked way too new in his fit (still looked good though). I don't go out of my way to get them dirty but they look better after being worn in the rain a few times I think.

    Marshall jorts are quite possibly worse than the holocaust.

    I know you're on that budget tip right now, but I'd be interested to see what you could do with some better pieces and maybe some tailored mall-level stuff. You've got the frame to really stand out if you start wearing some more interesting/better clothes (no homo).

    Good to see that I'm not alone in this opinion, since I was never able to relate to the "They look nice, but will look even better once they're worn-/broken in and look dirty and fucked up..." comments whenever someone posted a brand new, spick and span pair of sneakers. If I want my sneakers to look dirty for a more rugged, vintage, or even semi-goth-ninja-look, then I just buy a pair of stained Bratos, painted Margielas, DD Silents, or something along these lines. If I buy a clean, all white pair of sneakers, such as CPs, though, then I handle them with care, try to keep them in as-new condition ( obviously except the soles ) and aesthetically pleasing as long as possible and would never tar them - compared to sneakers that are intended for sports activities, or even "winter beaters" - with the same brush; quite contrary to boots and casual shoes, which I prefer a little beaten up and characterized by the signs of time. Well... I guess it also depends on the individual person's clothing style and overall appearance, though. Hardcore Xili Bro followers probably won't pull off spotlessly clean, shopwindow-crisp sneakers very well...

    I don't know if I'd be mentally capable of allowing something as costly as CP's get scuffed and beat down. I think it's fine with the Chucks/Vans of the world, but even then, it's more a natural progression of wear over intentionally trying to thrash them.

    There's a happy medium between stiff, creaseless sneakers and completely grimy little things like in the destroyed canvas sneaker thread.

    I love the look and eye catchiness of a bright white sneaker but I can see why someone would prefer them beaten up.

    I dislike beaten up sneakers, but prefer mine to look like they aren't brand new. Worn in and some wrinkles are perfect.

    This, but I know a dirty little secret on how to restore the cp/raf/lanvin sole to beautiful whiteness.

    One problem with worn shoes as white as fresh snow is that they conjure up thoughts of old dudes living down in Sarasota.

    Nice outfit sq4you! I really like the contrast between the shoes and the pants plus the polo fits great!

    Edit: What watch are you wearing? Looks like Bell&Ross but i could be wrong?

    Thanks. I try [​IMG] To a degree I was kind of fucking around with that last post... I knew the WAYWT council would hate it; I just wanted to see how much. Once it gets cooler (it's still in the 90s at night here) and I have a reason to dress nice I will post some more serious fits. In due time...
