    Thank you for your valued critique.

    Yes, it is always good to see some Aussies on here, it means the mass of terrible "low crotch wu-tang denim" is not winning :)
    Regarding the tie, I think this may be the cameras fault. It is gold IRL. I blame the phone camera...
    The collar I noticed myself as I was taking the photo, but was unsure. It's good to see my suspicions confirmed (though on all my nicest shirts :fu: )
    Finally, the shoes. They do look square in the photo don't they? I think that may be the angle of the photo :paranoia:
    This is the closest looking one that I found on the net:

    I learnt my lesson with my last pair of black shoes:
    square = bad;
    pointy & skyward = looking like cowboy / witch;
    round / chiselled = classically cool;

    Lessons learnt:
    • Go for a spread collar next time I order shirts
    • Get a proper camera so I can post better photos :)


    As always, I enjoy reading fit critiques & learning, so please keep it coming.

    You, TB, and others have noticed this and I just started to notice it myself. Boy the things you ignore when you don't take pictures everyday. I admit, some of my pants are a bit too tight. However, I have a really hard time finding pants. My waist is 32.5 but my seat fits well in 34s. My thighs also fit better. So I usually have to size up in most trousers. Most of my cotton pants are old and I need to get bigger sizes in them. When I size up. especially in cotton pants, they tend to be too baggy in the knees on down and I can't afford to have all my casual pants tapered. Does anyone have some suggestions for pants that I can size up in on the waist but not sacrifice a slim leg? I wear howard yount trousers mostly and some BB milano that I size up quite a bit in (33 waist but I wear 36 in milano fit...) to fit my thighs. Thanks! And, again, I apologize, I will crop out any further...moose knuckle in the future!

    You're right. There is no okay way to ask that. Perhaps we should just let it go...

    well, I am a psychologist in training, I can handle questions like this :) i hear weirder shit everyday and get asked even stranger questions..

    I wear boxers and always have. I didn't even really think twice about it.

    I was looking into epaulet chinos and sizing up, anyone have experience with them ? NYR i know, but I think he and I have different builds.
