    Stiches, I have a weird question, is it against religion to shave your head? Idk if I ever could, I have an odd shaped head but that jacket makes me think you can pull it off.

    Yes, yes it is. Yup!


    Thanks. You know what they say. If you cant be a boss, at least you can look like one.


    Well, you can shave your head, but you need to leave certain areas with some hair, just above, and in front of, the ears (sideburn area), so it would look odd if I shaved my head but left the required areas with hair.

    ^ Begs for AC/DC reference.

    At least in your case "It's not such a long way to the top if you wanna rock'n'roll". :D

    Just when things were getting slow, Stitchy to the rescue.

    I'm cool with it, Stitch, but I also feel you should be leaning against a Harley. Would complete the look.

    You didn't miss much, but I am trying to corrupt you and prey on your weakened mental state by getting you involved in another GMTO at Gentlemens' Footwear.

    I did see that. I think I should be out. I'm putting all my savings towards a house at the moment. Uggh.... they are pretty though.


    Get the night rod edition. Flat black and gorgeous.

    Don't even joke! That line of thinking will lead you to a series of midlife-crisis-style acquisitions that you will be hard pressed to stop. I've seen it happen with my own eyes, man!

    I am going to put you in a spot until you answer this question asked previously here.

    You seem to kill it in the casual thread as well so I am asking you. I looked over the fits and they're usually weird baggy pants (around the side pocket area) and dark stuff with just a t-shirt. If I saw someone walking down the street dressed like that, I'd be like, "Where he come from?!" I don't get how those fits get like 40+ thumb ups. I ain't dissing anybody. I really don't understand the style.

    I assume you mean SWD, and the truth is, if you dont understand it, there is no way to explain it. Its a different aesthetic there. For example, the last fit I posted here in MC in the Casual thread with the print shirt got little love. In SWD, plenty of love. Its just a different look.

    As to the baggy pants, honestly I dont think my pants are baggy, but I have monstrous thighs that make my pants look baggy. Any smaller and I would not be able to put them on. If I wasnt wearing a jacket you would probably say the same about lots of my MC pants.

    Also, I dont think I have ever posted a fit with just a t-shirt and SWD loves dark.

    I wasn't talking about you. I was talking about in general. LOL

    lawlz. WhooOOooOOPs!

    yeah, its just a different vibe there. Lots of flowy stuff and tees and other stuff too. Some love it, some dont. I like most of it, and some of it I love.
