Dude, you're killing yourself with those photos. Everything looks like plastic. I love Magnannis, but yours look terrible.

I just think you would have more fun and get more feedback if you figure out how to get better pics.

Also show your face, at least once in a while. Hiding ones face literally reeks of insecurity. There are only a few people here who dress well enough to overcome that negative stigma.
I'll agree with the need for better pics. The rest of your post regarding insecurity and showing my face once in a while is ridiculous. I don't show my face because this is the internet and this is about the clothes not my mug.
The shoes are beautiful but the pic does them little justice

What a kind, thoughtful response to a tactless and stupid reaction to your posts.
Call me crazy for wanting a little more civility in online forums.

I'm glad my size was sold out, because I really don't need another pair of dark brown single strap monks! Really nice shoes.

I do agree you could benefit from better image quality, simply because you seem to buy pretty high quality stuff and it doesn't come through. As for showing your face, sod that if you don't want to. Maintain the amount of privacy you need to feel comfortable.

Is it uncouth to ask, how much do people in this thread spend per year on clothing? I'm at ~$3K/year over the past few years and feel like I have nowhere near the wardrobe to make daily, super interesting fits like most on here. Granted that is between footwear, casual wear, athletic/athleisure, and CM so it doesn't go very far in each category.

I have no idea how much I spend on clothes per year. I don’t want to know. I’m afraid my wife might find out and then it’s curtains.

You can spend 30k a year, it’s irrelevant just as it is irrelevant of the comments and judgments passed here by a few sometimes. Just enjoy what you possess and wear it as you like in good health! That is all that matters!!

I spend $122,486 annually. Every year. Well, in 2007, it was $122,485.43, but no one's perfect.
That discrepancy is unforgivable.

Where is that website someone put together about the number of possible combinations for two three-piece suits? I have to see if I can find it.
