    and the problem is what?


    i can wear pretty much what i like at work, but i would never call the shirt a dress shirt. its a very casual plaid from j crew, and teger has explained quite clearly how the pants are very casual. and after much thought, i agree with him.

    i would like a nice v-neck though. dont have any atm, and its too warm for one anyways.

    I think you would benefit from lighter pants with that shirt, maybe steel grey or a khaki? Navy pants don't quite work with mostly white shirts I think.

    as a matter of fact, i usually wear the shirt with khakis, i though it was time to change it up. also, the pants are not lit well, they are lighter irl. i think the colors work quite well. :)

    I know that navy pants get no SF love, but I still like them. Having said that, I think these are too tapered for you (unless the stacking and low-angled photo is accentuating it). I know that narrow leg opening is de riguer these days, but I dont find it always flattering.

    thanks man, tbh, i would agree with you. these are the only pants i have that are cut like that, i like them well enough to wear them despite that its not my fave cut.

    also, i dont love the stacking, that will be taken care of when hemmed.

    PTW: A different shirt would have made all the difference in that fit. Also, running.

    Stitchy: +1 on a higher rise for you. You need to extend the apparent length of your legs. I don't have a problem with the belt itself, but there's too much contrast with these pants. Shirt is okay, and it does look like a casual shirt.

    I would be curious to see the same combination with the pants hemmed a bit higher and pressed with a crease.

    while i agree about the higher rise every time i see pics, i really am not sure what it looks like irl. my posted pics are taken by my 8 year old daughter, and this one was taken with the camera timer on a low chair, so the angle is always low and weird. i have never been considered as one with short legs, so i wonder how correct these representations are.

    come to think of it, when i met up with 187 i was wearing these pants. maybe he could say the impression they gave off irl. i may PM him and ask him to reply here.

    as to the rest, thanks, SB. :)

    Wait, you smell that?
    

    Which is weird and bullshit because Howard Yount always sells out of them. One or two pairs as odd pants are good I think.

    I've been staying on my medications and giving normality a shot. But don't worry, I just purchased this from Bookster.

    stichtybro,

    everyone at this forum loves you, but honestly you should listen to the advise given to you more consequently.
    While I think your more formal outfits have improved, your casual ones are still not working in your favour.
    I agree to everything Teger and SeaJen have already told you and also would advise you once again to get rid of this pair of shoes.
    The clunky toe box just doesn't look very nice and also the colour has more often than not given you troubles to pair it with the rest of the outfit.
    I can't remember who gave you that advise, I think it was Threadbearer or Holdfast(?), but I too would recommend to you to decide for a casual fit which you really like, be it from a respected member of this forum or some tumblr, and try to get your hands on the items needed to build it for your own frame.
    If you continue the way you do right now the wild mixture of critique on both style and fit is very difficult to deal with I guess, so focus on one aspect and nail the fit first, because it is more important imo, there is plenty of time left for you to express your creativity in the future, but every outfit, as nice the single items and the overall style might be, will fail if it just doesn't fit you properly.

    Crushing it, in my opinion. The ink/beard is offset really well with dress shirt and belt. I hope that you rock this socially as much as at work. Not crazy about the hem of the pants though.

    Today's outfit is suitable to x-post into this thread I think:
