    I like the fit, your beardnificence, but it really does look like you're sitting on some kind of terracotta crapper...

    You are allowed to state your opinion at you want.

    Ex:

    Everything was good (not a fan of the shirt but thats just personal taste) until it got to the pants. In my opinion the pant rise is much too low for the rest of the look, you have your pants sitting on your hips and JCrew did you no favors by cutting them for teenage hipsters.

    -Spoo's upper body does not look huge, and the pants are perfectly acceptable as he prefers a lower rise look. He does not wear his pants at his belly button like a 90 year old.
    -The Bowery classic fit pant is not designed for teenage hipsters. It's a classic fit. You wear pants that are far to full; the example provided by Spoo is how a trouser should fit.

    It makes his torso look huge and his legs look stubby.
    -You are certianly entitled to your opinion. I, for one, think that opinion is based on you attempting to sound like you actually know what you are saying. The person in the photo in question does not look "stubby" at all.

    What you are doing here amounts to the bench warmer who can't yet play telling one of the best players (a proven player) how to win.

    forgetting sothern's ridiculously short hem on his pants, his do fit better than the ones Spoo is wearing. Not saying that Spoo's are bad just that in those pics southern's sit better on his waist/thighs. Admittedly, these are two bad pics from which to draw conclusions about pant fit. Spoo's thin croc belt dancing around that large waistband is not doing any favors to the pant look.

    In all honesty, Spoo is far superior in dressing than Southernstyle in just about all aspects. In this particular case, I do think that Southernstyle's pants sits better than Spoo's. But apart from that, there are major problems with Southernstyle's tie length, width, and trouser hem.

    Yes, but southernstyle hasn't tried to claim any superiority over Spoo. He's just offering his opinion, which anyone else is free to ignore. I think we can all agree that you shouldn't need to be a "better" dresser than someone to make a comment on their fit, given of course that it's not delivered in an offensive fashion, which I don't think ss's was.
