    i rather you not dislike me and despise my fit than the opposite. although you do flatter, here, and quite accurately I might add.

    i was just teasing you the other time anyway , as, apparently, I'm wont to do heh


    thanks for kind words to all, this was quite a first introduction to MC fits for me :eek:

    Totally spot on. I sometimes feel like many members in SF don't understand design aesthetics. There are other factors to fashion/style than just fit (and a certain fit mind you) and it seems like most often than not, everything is thrown out the window if it isn't the drape or waist suppression that the forum champions.

    Colors aside, it appears to be trying to crawl out of your pocket.

    if you wanted to give some benefit of doubt ...
    saying that the basis of style is that the clothing FITS ...
    it could even mean fitting into the situation

    just putting that out there

    shah - Maybe you stated this somewhere and I missed it, but where are you wearing this outfit? Where would you wear it in general?

    Yep. There's much more to being stylish than perfect fit. In fact, some people might find "perfect fit" boring. The whole notion of fit is relative anyway imo. Most of us know what good fit means in the "MC" sense. But there's a whole spectrum of design approaches out there that veer from the classical ideal... on purpose. One doesn't have to like them, but he should at least acknowledge that these different approaches exist and that they are often more appealing to a lot of guys than being "classic".
