    I am personally well aware of the labels. I think the slouchy silhouette is a look and can look fashionable when done right, but only when done right. All-in-all the "anti-fit", a term which has been around for a while now is really just a surrender at even trying, be it for any reason.

    Maybe they're all Chaplin fans?

    Anti-anything is usually a much easier path to take than playing by the rules and succeeding. That's why nihilism is so popular among the young and rich. Not to start a huge discussion or anything of that sort, but I prefer my clothing to positively outline my rather fit body shape, instead of hiding it. If I were fat or out of shape, I'd probably wear something like Shah is wearing much more often.

    I'll reiterate that I like the top part of your outfit, Shah. It's the untucked shirt and the messy pants where it stops working for me.

    while I also embrace slimmer outfits (indeed the aforementioned suit by raf is obviously slim if you know raf) , I hate the concept of rules. And so I am not bound by them but traverse the spectrum as I please. Call it laziness/lack of ability, I call it unbridled enthusiasm for creative expression. I am not limited to wearing suits 5 days a week and so I do everything from sarouel + bomber + tee to slim black coated denim + sneakers (margiela/cp) + blazer to boots + trousers + jacket either cut slim or all wide. But as to the anit- is easier, I would like you to try a Yohji look and tell me it's easier than having a slim-cut outfit tailored to your exact proportions. It's quite aggressive. This wasn't even the mainline (Pour Homme) but the more youthful, though still oversized, Y's jacket. And you have a good eye if you can appreciate it.

    I am quite comfortable with what I wear ... indeed, it's not a look for all, and I didn't think it would be well-received here at all, I just posted mostly in jest :p

    Relax, man. I also have a Yamamoto jacket that I love and wear the hell out of. But it doesn't mean I have to throw it on with what appear to be sweat pants and post a picture of myself looking like I just lost a fight with a homeless dude.

    I don't think everyone's dismayed by the look you were aiming for, but rather, that you missed it, and in some pretty obvious / easily corrected ways.

    You are a true nomad of style, sailing the pastures of fashion hither and thither, pitching a tent on that hillock, or this dale, hoisting anchor sometimes, lowering anchor at others, unfettered, free, free as a Free Bird.

    I got some exceptionally boring socks in the mail from Spoo today and thought of you. Posted them in the recent purchases thread.

    Black socks? Golly you are boring. I hope you have some black pants to go with them.

    They have dots on them, I'll find some place to wear them, perhaps with shorts? It was a package deal [​IMG]

    so the aesthetic appeal only comes with recognition of the brand, right?
