    Quote: Thanks, it's bespoke, but made in Dugdale Caldonaire tweed, which I highly recommend, comes at 13oz.

    Quote: I don't want to sound obstinate, but to me that's kind of the point, it's a very different aesthetic, which one might choose to feel is either subjectively or objectively less good, but I personally like it, though then again, the streetwear guys didn't like it either. I still do, idk. I like that it's a mixture of feminine and masculine aesthetics and kinda funky/modern. I really like how the white of the cardigan peaks out, and I think white paired with blue is really nice, as a subtle accent especially when it's seasonal appropriate in this case due to material and texture.

    Anyway, time for....

    @Isolation I did not like your previous fit very much not because of its tightness/slimness at all... it was that sweater with thumb holes in it... really threw me off... The rest I did not think it was bad at all.

    This should be another topic for discussion but I think that most men really feel threaten when another man is wearing something a bit tighter. I have noticed that a lot. I don't know if they feel like they are not the alpha in the room or they get jelous of how women look at that other guy or what... but it seems like that to me.
    Personally, I could not care less, I own a jacket with a very narrow waist and you can not believe how many women (and men) turn their head around in the street to keep looking. I won't post it here because I am sure no one will like it but it gets a lot of attention, and I mean, the good kind, the kind that -excuse my expression- gets you laid.

    Anyways, you have a very personal style and I admire that @Isolation , really. Not everyone can say the same. I like when people have personality dressing. Like @NewYorkIslander or @Dennis Walter , they have a distinctive touch and you can tell who they are even if you couldn't see their faces. Most of your pieces are nice but sometimes you mix it with something rather shocking -at least for me- like you did with that sweater. If the sweater would not have had those holes I would have thumbed you :)

    And I'm not just saying this, but when I got a look at the photo I realized I was taking some definite cues from many of your fits. I need to get some higher rise trousers in the next one. ;)

    Edit, also think I've got a bit of the @Gerry Nelson causal vibe too. If I may be so bold.

    @Isolation I like the simple blue and white colors in that fit just above. Also the balance between the long sweater and the trousers/shirt.

    Thanks for the kind words. That's a great outfit and I'm going to be getting inspiration from that when the weather turns colder in Melbourne.

    I like everything but the sweatshirt. Obviously the bag is fantastic since I own it as well.

    @Synthese is the sweatshirt dirty or is the photo playing games with me? And who makes those jeans?

    not dirty, just a grey uniqlo sweat. Jeans are APC petit standard, almost 7 years old and mostly held together by darning thread and patches.

    Coat is rad, Chulillo. I forget where you are located. Spain? My wife and I are considering a trip to either Barcelona or Morocco next year.

    Thanks mate! It is a waxed cotton jacket that I couldn't resist buying it when I saw it at the store... it was love at first sight, :p

    I am located in Spain, right. Everybody form the US tends to go to Barcelona, I guess that being an Olympic city has its perks that way but even though Barcelona is beautiful you should check out the south (Seville, Granada, Córdoba...) and the north as well (Santiago de Compostela, San Sebastián, Oviedo...). You would not imagine how diferente our heritages are from one place to the other.

    If you like architecture you should check those three areas because you will flip. Barcelona has its legacy from Gaudí which is fabulous (La Sagrada Familia, Parque Güell, Casa Batllò, Casa Milà, etc). Sevilla is such a monumental city (rather small in territory but with amazing buildings, the biggest gothic cathedral in the world, a Roman ruins, the biggest archive from the discovery of America, the remains of Columbus, lots of museums dedicated to so many different historic periods)... Granada has the Alhambra (which is one of the most stunning constructions -history wise- you could ever see, and it is such a beautiful city. Córdoba has is Masque (now a Cathedral) with such an amazing design nowadays and considering the time it was built; and its beautiful patios (people let you see their patios that are decorated with flowers of all kinds and it is truly amazing to see in person, takes your breath away.

    Up north you have not only lots of little beautiful cities into which you must get lost but there is also so much natural parks and nature-oriented tourism that anyone could enjoy and never want to leave.

    And of course the food... if you like eating, anywhere you go here there are some typical dishes you must taste and I am sure you will enjoy them very, very much.

    You would not believe that in such small country (compared to others) you can find so many different climates, cultures, heritage, landscape diversity and so on... I think we really are truly blessed to have so many different places to go to in here.

    About Morocco, well, I have been a couple of times but I have never been too driven by it but that I have friends who absolutely love it. One of them said that they like it more than Paris... I think he is crazy because Paris is ones of my absolute favorite cities in the world.

    Anyways, sorry for the long off topic.
