    I'm voting for artishard, and here's why:

    For those of you who haven't read the latest "what is styleforum wearing" thread, stop reading this right now and go read it. This post will still be here when you get back. Anyway, artishard says something to the effect that in order for the wearer to look truly comfortable, the clothes he wears need to be lived in, roughed up, broken in, I forget the exact wording. The point is, while the boots I'm wearing have a few miles on them, the jeans are still being broken in, and this was literally the first time I put this amazingly beautiful jacket on. Everything's crispy and box-fresh, like it's being modeled for a photo shoot. The clothes all look good, but they're easily a year's worth of wear away from realizing their full potential, probably a few years in the case of the jacket.

    Secondly - and perhaps less significantly - my fit is a greatest hits of safe, SF-approved mid-level streetwear pieces to a degree that borders on parody. Everything works together, but there's nothing particularly unique or interesting about the fit as a whole. It has unity and integrity, but it lacks direction.

    I've said my piece. Carry on.

    Mine was boring, I vote notwithit. :)

    You see Styleforum Robot? Your plan to pit us against one another in a vicious blood-feud has failed. Because we humans have compassion and empathy. Things you will never understand!

    nice post notwithit. you articulated a lot of the issues I have with your fit (although obviously still pretty good).

    I'd also be curious to see what you'd look like if you played with silhouette a little. everything you wear is always extremely slim, and I'm curious how you'd look like in some looser, more streetwear even workwear oriented looks.

    I've put in my vote to tie the poll. You may close the polls now, friend.
