    I am really not that offended or bothered by this. I can run for miles, lift, and shoot a mean 3 pointer, thats "athletic" enough for me for my lifestyle. My bone structure is whatever you want to call it. I am just learning to dress to my frame rather than trying to frame my dress. If that makes sense.

    The quality of these pictures is crap but these were taken at chest level with no manipulation at a level angle. They represent a "accurate image" according to my friend of how I look when someone looks at me straight on. So, hopefully this alleviates any confusion considering I am not so great at using my cell phone to take pictures for my daily fits...so sorry about that.

    there seems to be plenty of good outdoor lighting for the shot
    no need for flash
    he just needs to let more light in
    lower the f-stop number and lower the camera shutter speed
    tell your brother to join a photography forum and to read the instruction manual... and just keep shooting


    now about your suit
    looks decent but can be improved a lot
    first of all, how short is the jacket? are the pants very high rise?
    the jacket looks short + very high button stance
    the short jacket can be passable since it's the trend these days ... but i think a lower button stance would fit you so much better

    I personally prefer it when a shirt collar looks slightly disheveled like this.

    Well my friend I have said it before, and will say it again. You look great in your outfits. It is you that repeatedly refer to your hips, and others pick up on it as ammunition.
    Reduce the waist suppression if you like, and close the quarters (a bit more) if you like and so be it. That is you. All I wish you would do is get yourself a damn pocket square, white cotton and stick it in everyday where it belongs!!

    Otherwise...

    You looking great!!

    When shouted in anger in a StyFo thread, this sentence could serve as the Official StyleForum Expletive[​IMG].

    Naturally, it leads to fisticuffs.

    You're right, of course. There's really only one acceptable definition of that term. Don't know what I was thinking.

    A part of me is somewhat :embar: by all this talk but I guess it is a byproduct of taking pictures of your clothing for analysis everyday. What was I thinking. What have I done?

    Oh btw, here is what I am wearing today. Cheers!
    (Dean, yes, I know, I am ordering some kent wang PS today as we speak. To be fair, I purchased some during the BB sale a few months back but they sent me linen hankerchiefs (huge ones...) rather than a square. I tried!)

    I am wearing briefs today for the first time since middle school when the bully gave me a weggie in the locker room for wearing them. Anybody want to re-create?
