    ignoring the details on this specific hat, i don't think a full-brimmed hat + tee will work usually. though a white tee and those jeans and sneakers is cool without the hat, though standard.

    this specific hat is a boldly colored hat that frankly i would not wear under any circumstances. but if you wanted to wear a somewhat more chill hat, you could probably get this to work with a button-up shirt and some formalish shoes.

    The first fit is just great. Bravo for having the guts to (almost) wear the apron. I can imagine people asking you all night about it and having a really good time with it. But you'd just kind of look like a goofball with an apron if the rest of it wasn't so well-proportioned and interesting, so well done. Too bad you weren't able to wear it. Nothing wrong with the second fit, but you can see how well-shaped the first one is when you compare the two. Second one looks rather blah by comparison.

    Was just going to say mok was channeling some kind of greaser vibe. Minus the leather.

    I like this one a lot. I think you could get a hair more contrast out of the shirt/jacket combo, but it looks great as is.

    PS I really liked that AlexanderTG fit, probably the best fit he's had so far. The shirt material is a little crisp but I think the pattern makes it work.

    But this whole you're-not-allowed-to-say-dress-to-your-body-type thing is plain dumb. It's basically the equivalent of saying that we're not allowed to criticize people for buying clothes that are two sizes too big or two sizes too small; some clothes fit and some don't, end of story.

    Well the dressing for your body type ideas are completely separate from just wearing clothes that fit and are the right size.

    Whenever we have a conversation regarding dressing to your body type it becomes convoluted with a whole bunch of weird guidelines, 90% of which are based around making things look good in photographs (e.g. elongating vertical lines etc and other weird "tricks" that miss the point in the same way pickup artists miss the point - no one buys it and even if they did, where's the fun in that?) or full of irrelevant archaic tools invented to flatter the bodies of fat wealthy European men in the 19th century.

    Most of these conversations ignore the fundamental questions
    - do I fit that description?
    - do I want to be flattered in that way? (i.e. I don't particularly want/need my shoulders to be broadened or my waist to be nipped)
    - do I want to be flattered at all?

    I know you're not advocating any of that, just pointing out for other readers why it's annoying conversation to have.

    So while I don't want to invoke anti-intellectualism by just saying "wear what looks good", I just want to avoid the slew of fundamentally flawed ideas that pop up in these types of conversations.

    Yes I know, I was disagreeing with a post that didn't involve you - the suggestion that he should avoid oversized clothing because of his height etc.. I brought up your handle as a joke.

    Bene, were you trying some sort of Margielaish fit here? Just wanted to ask because it looks a lot like my early stuff

    I'd pair some hidden placket shirt and slim boots (doesn't have to be Margiela or anything like that) with those pants and then unbutton to about the 3rd button and bam you got the "miami coke dealer[​IMG]" down

    Thanks guys - I've given up sticking to one look, just keep playing with the dressing up box :)
    The second fit was more successful - I like the Beams+ jacket but it's a little long in the body for me.
