Not everyone wants that, though. In any case, I think 1) is the biggest factor here.
It doesn't matter what you want, the fact is that it doesn't look flattering. It's a V look vs. A look (referring to shapes), I have jackets with extended shoulders and if done right, you don't feel any difference between the ones with no extension.
Shall we each keep repeating our previous posts?
Yes, you are wrong.
If you'd actually contradicted anything I said, that might be a great closing statement. As it is, though, you've just demonstrated your facility for certainty in the face of incomplete information. Which is awesome!
oh yay, people being asshats in a FC thread. what a welcome change of pace.
1) Both his shoulders and hips are in the picture, so we can get a fair indication of their relative proportions, given that the camera angle seems quite neutral.
2) From the photo it seems the jacket fits well around his shoulders, but is too small around the hips, hence the very open quarters. So, going up in size might give a better balanced look.
Yes, we may have 'incomplete information' and I'm defintely not exercising a 'facility for certainty', merely stating an opinion based on the photographic material available.
Have a nice sunday, y'all
Except that Butler's fit - though absolutely stunning - isn't really FU in my opinion. It fits squarely in the British countrywear tradition and is not really an eccentric example.
For example, I think AAS' fit is much more individualistic and out-of-the-box and thus more FU.
"In your opinion" is the key. I was just expressing my opinion. In my world, he would be getting more stares than a 10 car pile-up. Which, to me, is FU.
Also, FU wasn't really defined as anything specific in the challenge requirements, so eccentricity, individualism, and out-of-the-boxness don't necessarily have to matter, although FU probably does have some of those qualities.
Apparently nowadays it's possible to have the wrong opinion on something 100% subjective.
That is the SF way.
One persons opinion on any subjective matter = infallible truth.
Exactly, i was just expressing my opinion. Certainly not pretending to state an 'infallible truth'
I guess you're right that the loose definition of FU makes it liable to differing interpretations
No it's not, and that's the truth! In my opinion
Yeah, I get you, no big deal. I think it's in the wording you used. It wouldn't have been an issue if you just said "AAS, great FU fit" and not "no, Butler isn't FU, AAS is much better."
We can all express our opinions, but let's let the final poll decide who is better on comparison.
Separate names with a comma.
