    Normally I'd agree with you all and say the pocketsquare is too poofy and ostentatious and et cetera, but I actually really like it with this outfit — even frilly and worn as it is in this picture. With the absense of a tie, it sort of takes the tie's place. I do think that if it was worn more subtly this outfit could be a classic for me.

    denim suit? yikes . . . .

    you make me laugh... but im laughing at you not with you.

    you can't be serious...

    i expected someone wouldnt care for the jeans and jeans jacket together. When i saw that, i though about defending it myself, but figured someone else would eventually.
    I know the denim suit look can be bad, but i think i know how to do it right. Anyway, i felt good in it and i know it suits me... and i think it helps that the jacket fits me almost perfectly.

    looking good. consistently solid fits.

    Thanks.

    Canadian Tuxedo!

    Thats my prefered term also! I went to see Wavves last night and i friend on mine i saw there said "i like the Canadian tuxedo" or something like that. I could tell he was being serious, but at the same time when you say canadian tuxedo it kinda sounds like an insult or a joke, so he quickly told me he really did like it.

    Wavves are fucking prime saw them a few weeks ago. Fuck me for hating on the fit! You get 10 bonus points.

    @nobunny: I am surprised that SF did not tear you apart for not dressing your age[/I.] Especially since your case is much more severe than that of abc123whatever. In order to make such a formal suit look good you need a certain level of maturity(not age) Thats one reason even guys in their thirties can't wear them and rely only on streetwear.
    What I try to say is that your face and body say: "My parents put me into this suit today." (No offense)
    You could -Wait 10 years and try again.
    -Grow a beard/Cut your hair.
    - Eat and workout.





    @ thekunk: Although your body type would not be the first which comes to mind if you'd read me a list of your clothes, you really pull them off. I can imagine that a lot of work and energy went into this fit.

    @ synth: Not much to say. Fits good. I would experiment with dark (blue) laces. Would make the look less cartoonish. (<- improper word here. Replace with something less negative sounding. Hope you get what I mean.)

    @samblackbones: Jeans fit looks off (Maybe because you pose funny). Buy a front pocket wallet.

    @ aeglus: too much! Keeping the pocket square just flat would make all the difference.

    Sumowax has a slight shine to its finish... not NEARLY as much as the classic wax that B&B makes (which is a great think IMO).

    Sumotech is a matte finish (which is my ultimate preference).


    Which is better for the type of hairstyle we've been going on about for pages (long on top/short on sides)? Also, what's the consistency of either one like compared to American Crew Fiber? I bought a container of that stuff and found it maddening to work with, since it'd just clump up in my hair before I could actually style it.

    I'd say it depends on preference... but for the Synthese/Aeglus style I think you could go either way. The slight shine of wax might look nice. I just don't like to use it in my hair all the time because it makes it look kinda greasy (not as bad with lighter colors of hair).

    Consistency of sumotech is probably closer to American Crew Fiber than sumowax is... but even so I still think sumotech is a bit softer/more malleable. Sumowax is a little bit stickier/"goopier" than the former products since it's wax-based.


    And when working with this stuff, it's best to really rub it in your hands before applying to your hair or else you're gonna have a lot of trouble.

    I use the tigi S factor "creamy molding wax" it works well on my hair (thick straight) if it's been textured and leaves a matte finish.

    B&B products work great, but are a bit on the expensive side and harder for me to find where I am. I had been looking for a cheaper alternative (and one that's easier to acquire for me) for a while and so far the best I've come up with is Bed Head for men's B matte separation workable wax:

    So far this stuff has been working great for me. The hold is pretty strong (good for me because my hair is thick and straight... doesn't give much) and it has a matte finish just like sumotech. Worth checking out if you're looking to try some new product.
