No vest wins by a mile.
I can see how this kind of criticism could be seen as trying to impose some rigid, hidebound standard of dress (or worse, trying to impose your own, totally arbitrary standard of dress), and I generally think it's ill-advised to try to shoehorn people into dressing in a way that makes them uncomfortable. I do think, however, that constructive criticism has merit in that it often: 1. Spotlights "blind spots" in your way of thinking about how you dress; 2. Challenges you to think through your position on whatever is being discussed, forcing you to replace passive choices with active ones.
Definitely. The jacket length looks spot on.
Awfully rainy day in Luxembourg! But I heard it was the same pretty much everywhere
le sigh, i have no issue with constructive criticism.
big difference between an item being off/trousers that look worse than you thought, and trousers that look fine, but could arguably be replaced with a different color, to create a different outfit, that may arguable be better than the one presented.
im not saying people should not point out flaws in others fits, if people didnt do that for me i would never have improved. critiquing is important and an integral part of this forum. but as stated above, there is significant difference between something that is off, and something that is fine, but someone feels a different color of texture MIGHT be better. i think that is a rather simple distinction.
and im not even saying that pointing out that maybe another color/texture might be better is wrong. just that it should be framed in an appropriate way, and one should consider why the op went with the item he chose to, and to understand the distinction between a critique of an error, and a preference in style towards a fit that is indeed alright.
Can we see a picture of your closet? You must have a crazy amount of clothes, shoes, briefcases, etc.
1. No vest
2. Odd vest
3. Matching vest
That said, the odd vest looks festive, and if it floats your boat, rock it.
I think you expect too much. In the WAYWRN threads, we have a series of pictures and basic information presented to us and we respond. There are always idiots, but most people do so constructively, politely and even with some generosity of spirit, but if you want people to understand why you chose something in particular, you'd have to tell us. It's our responsibility in posting to provide the level of information equivalent to the level of the response we want. If I post a fit pic in a grey jacket with a pair of burgundy slacks, I can't reasonably expect you to know that those are just the only clean trousers I had, or that I got dressed in the dark, or that my religious beliefs mandate the wearing of burgundy on Fridays, or that they belonged to my deceased father and it would have been his birthday today - unless I tell you.
lol, yes that is true, but that was far from the brunt of the point i was making.
whatevs, no big deal, just something that slightly irks me. no worries.
I remove my friend, sometimes someone else. Sometimes I shoot himself with a tripod.
It's not that hard.
When the space is small, I do not pictures of a full-length in waist.
Equipment, which I often use this Canon 5D and 2 lenses: 135L 2.0 (most often) and 35L 1.4 (when there is little space to focus 135L)
Navy pants are really just an admission that you shouldn't have bought that sportscoat.
