    welcome to SF! I'm going to say the polo could be a bit more fitted, but the relaxed look of the jeans and sneakers are fine.

    Enjoy your stay

    You might get some noise from people about the fit of the jeans; I say ignore it if you like the loose, relaxed look. They fit well, though I would consider hemming them. You will also probably get people knocking the artificial whiskering on the jeans, and that I agree with. The polo fits very well and the proportions work great with the jeans, but please, no collar-popping, and faux-tucking the polo to show the belt looks contrived. My $0.02!

    haha, contradictory posts.

    I thought the polo is entirely a size too big, weirdly.

    I think the fit through the body looks OK, just the poster doesn't have particularly developed arms so the sleeves look loose.

    Hard to tell where the shoulders hit from the dark, blurry picture, but it looks like they hit properly. It's a bit long, but that can be rectified pretty cheaply and quickly by any tailor. I think if the polo gets any more fitted, the jeans will start to look sloppy, whereas right now the proportions work fine--notice that the width of the shirt and the width of the jeans are pretty close to identical, for example. Who, nice shoes!

    As far as I can see the shoulders don't fit, but more importantly the sleeves almost hit his elbow. That's the first sign that it doesn't fit. The fit of the jeans is fine waist-wise, but the inseam needs shortening, regardless of that they still are and will be ugly.

    first post, first style [​IMG].

    5/10 for creativity, reduced to 3/10 for the collar pop and faux whiskering on the jeans. Lacoste sneakers are a tad chav, but that's a UK thing.

    By the way, welcome.[​IMG]

    you're right polo doesn't fit well, it's the shirt from (of?) my high school degree and i have to wear it. Its medium size like my most shirts but too big for me.... .

    (sry my english sounds crappy, im from germany, and i was at a party for the last 6 hours....)

    Who, nice shoes!

    Thanks. I never would have thought that you could buy Italian oxfords hand-made by that guy who played Uncle Jesse on "Full House." Who would have guessed he was a cobbler all along?

    Nice shot from Campus, It looks like just of 36th and Locust by the Library.

    It's odd that I've been walking around campus all this time and haven't spotted you yet. It's not as if there is a lot of nice streetwear on campus, mostly Frat boys in crappy washed diesels.
