    well aside from that the tie is unfortunate though I can appreciate the attempt at high contrast and mixing patterns (what's the rule on patterns here? i think i can do up to 3, or perhaps 5 though quite tricky to avoid looking like a zoo at that point). And the red socks ... are the shoes navy ??
    now that i see him shadow boxing i like it more though.

    i don't think i'm wrong in my assessment of where this classic timeless style (ugh...i said it...) is based. that's where your time point falls, and i said it here as well as swd.

    yeah the unfortunate truth of mom's basement fits is something to be suffered, not really a factor in determining style though. if you want hard core city life fits check sz you'll likely not see parents' homes as much...

    Gotta ask for higher armholes; elbows not tight enough against the ribs.

    Back to the drawing board...

    You remind me a lot about a guy who used to be active here name Film Noir Buff. He does not wear fashion-wear, though.

    Re: The Tie:

    1) Thank you; I am of an unfortunate mindset this morning...

    Re: The Shoes

    2a) Black, actually.

    2b) Yes, I wear black with navy.

    2c) No, I don't care.

    Keep on keeping on...

    Ain't that the truth.

    Kill the body and the head will follow.

    (Can we apply this reasoning to MC? Has me thinking...)

    The new St. Crispin Rapier features a Kevlar-lined toecap with spring-activated double-sided, spear-point blade in S30V super-steel to give that extra oomph to your Savate-styled liver jabs...

    Hand-stitched and welted, of course

    black & navy is a faux pas i take it ? well in any case, i've heard others say it in the other sub-forum , and i don't agree with it. i think it can look quite nice when done right.

    sweet moves, btw

    This is the video that inspired the shoe - a re-definition of the concept of "sensible footwear" . . .

    For your robo-pose, yes. For most others, no. What I consider the typical MC "robo-pose" is good for showing how the guy would look as Frankenstein on Halloween. It sheds light on how clothes fit on a guy who has contorted himself awkwardly to make his clothes look like they fit. But how often is a guy going to stand like that? Never. Be much better if guys would just stand there relaxed. Hands hanging normally at sides if going for a fit critique.

    Personally, I'm much more interested in how a guy looks as he goes about his day than in playing iTailor based on an awkward photo.

    Perhaps the best the best pose for SFers, then, would be seated at a computer typing angrily.
