Here's something you need to dispel from your head: you have something to teach this forum. In reality, you have very little to offer and so much to learn. Now you may move on and grow.
You hear that Astaire... Vovan says fuck your fits.
What's that Cary Grant? go jump a bridge- your style is obsolete! effortlessgent has spoken!
When I eat something that doesn't quite agree with me in the evening, I usually take what I like to call an "Effortless Gent" in the morning.
moo we call this the morning deuce normally but i like "effortless gent"
So this is really Foo's domain, but I'm trying to teach myself Photoshop, and this seemed like a good opportunity to do a cut-rate "foof" that would illustrate some fit / style issues.
Here's the before and the after - excuse the sloppy editing. As fun as this is, I'm not going to spend 100 years doing it . . . .
The original suit had shoulders that were too padded and a gorge that was too high, making you look like a lego man. The jacket was also slightly too short in my opinion.
The colors were too similar, and frankly, the suit color was incompatible with the your skin tone. You would do better to go less khaki, more grey.
I hope for the effortless gent, but usually things don't go that smoothly
I dunno, I kind of agree with him. I try to avoid BD's when I'm trying to look serious. Not saying they are the wrong choice with a suit or dressy sport coat / office pants combo, but I think it's fair to argue that they aren't the optimal choice. You aren't playing polo after all.
Repp tie = casual, blue blazer = casual, flannel odd trousers = casual, thus button down shirt = casual...
Might not be the visual aspects (colour, pattern) that are clashing, but the texture. Is it a smooth poplin? An oxford might be a better choice.
This is where a pale blue oxford would be ideal imo.
Went and bought that Vanda eh, Spoo?
Can't blame ya; just got me the chocolate shantung and it's also a beaut!
Add a tie and wear a v-neck. Throw away the shoes and the hat. Being a student is not an excuse. There are tons of great items avalable for next to nothing. Lurk around and you´ll learn where to look.
Just for the record. I have taken a fair amount of beating in this thread and I still do occationally. There is no room for improvement in nice and kind comments. It might boost you selfesteem but at the lack of your self awarenesss. We don´t want more of those inflated egos now do we?
