    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.

    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".
