    I disagree with the notion that anyone should have to own/wear certain things in order to intelligently critique an outfit. College students preparing to go/pay for med school (no catharsis here...), for instance, cannot afford the time, risk or money to purchase their ideal clothes, but they still may have an opinion worth listening to. Taste, a broad knowledge-base and an ability to articulate a well thought out critisism are miles ahead of a steady stream of WYWN photos.

    exactly

    You can still posess the knowledge without posting your pictures.

    and I sorta disagree with that. I've used this analogy before on here, but it's so appropriate for Style Forum... It's like a guy who has never had sex, but he watches a lot of porn, has gone to a lot of strip clubs, has read Penthouse forum religiously, and maybe has even had a handjob once from Betty Rottencrotch, and he's giving advice on how to be a good lover. A lot of that goes on in SF I think....there are definitely a few regulars I can think of who fit that bill. One guy on MC I remember always had some very strong opinions on classic menswear and when he FINALLY threw up a pic of himself, needless to say it was very disappointing and that single pic basically invalidated anything he'd ever said. Of course you can critique something without having owned it, but critique is usually a subjective thing and it's nice to see where the person's coming from in his own style by seeing what he's doing on a daily basis

    Top part I can deal with; however, for me too much trouser break.

    I think length wise, they couldn't be too much shorter while still remaining conservative, I wish the pants were cut a bit less full, however. Perhaps tapering them would help. I agree though, I think the look would be a bit cleaner with less break.

    GS, I think your logic is flawed but I understand what youre getting at. The problem I find is that a person is completely capable of understanding good taste or give perspective to an aesthetic while being themselves a poor dresser. Being a poor dresser (which mind you is subjective to begin with) doesnt invalidate your opinion alone. If I post a picture and everything I've critiqued on others I do as well, then yes, you would be correct.

    In Drizzt's example, I like his taste and would easily let him give me advice on who makes the best suit/sport jackets. Because he doesnt know how to wear them in proportion to his own body doesnt mean he shouldnt give any advice on how others should wear them.

    Thanks. Yea, that was a killer deal from Chorse on the jacket! This is the sportier one with the lambskin trim and zipped up rain hood.

    Some of us don't have the leisure as you to have others take our pics or let alone BE in pics with you to show off your jeans and tshirt.

    um...open your eyes and expand your mind...its called a self timer. gives you 10 seconds to snap a pic anywhere you want.

    I'm really trying to find some better jeans but struggling, don't really want to start the 14,000th thread here on "skool an old geezer on jeans" but may have no choice.

    No, not boots. Their C&J weymouths [ish] but on a different last.

    I agree with Jason's disagreeing, put up or shut up. You can't have your cake and eat it to, and all that.

    If I may sir, I believe those jeans look like 'mom jeans'. High wasted, flat front with no wrinkles and they make you look like you have hips. I don't have any suggestions jeans wise, but I think it's good that you're exploring your options there. Cool jacket.

    Omega- I don't mind the 501s, they go well with your style and age.
    If you're looking for something else I'd suggest 5ep, the quality is up to that of the rest of your clothes and the cut is a little more timeless and less fasionable.
    For that matter, why not get a pair of 501 STFs? if only because I think the STFs darker hue looks a bit better and (in my experience, STFs don't have as much thiogh bulge as regular 501s).

    Looking good.

    Drizz- I agree w/socal on the trouser break, but looking good.
    I like your pictures if for not other reason than it's nice to see how stuff looks on an more athletic build.
    If I might suggest one thing to change it's your stance/posture in your pictures, I used to always "check" my outfits in the mirror with that same stance until I realized how unflattering it made me look.
    As someone who looks to you when searching for how certain jeans will fit my 'athletic' legs I'd love to see you in less composed and stiff shots.
