    You think there´s only one way of dressing? You have no idea what he´s trying to achieve with this fit. I think your lack of knowledge reflects on YOUR post count.

    Eighty-some degrees on the Ides of March. That calls for spring colors and no socks.
    (Shirt is mint green but always looks washed out in photos.)

    What is the post count threshold that unlocks an appreciation for this outfit?

    A few weeks ago I was wearing my overcoat and my calves were sweating. I thought of you.

    That shah outfit had something close to 60 likes. It won't ever make sense to MC.

    I like the jacket by itself. A lot.

    you don't need any particular number, you just gotta have the slightest modicum of good taste with a bit of knowledge about what you're looking at. i guess it helps if you've heard of the labels which are, without doubt, more likely to be appreciated elsewhere (yohji yamamoto jacket, damir doma shirt + trousers from several seasons ago). those aren't sneakershoes either, they're boots. admittedly look awkward in that pic, but it is what it is. i just posted this here because it's probably the closest I've come to wearing a formal outfit in some while. the one suit I do own is a spring/summer '09 raf simons in some crazy shark-skin-looking black fabric so I don't imagine that will ring much of a bell either ? anyway, i prefer yohji's take on the anti-fit men's wear, smashing Wagnerian traditions during his one venture in operatic costume-making. The volume is quite fun to play with, as are the fabrics (though I've no doubt here people can appreciate the best of textiles).

    ^ This.

    My post count comment was just because the poster who criticized Shah´s fit said something really dumb like: "How can you have over 10000 posts and dress like that?", which was quite the asinine remark.

    I read this joke recently- "he's so narrow-minded he can applaud with his ears".
