    Pants are far and away my biggest problem area. I have a weird build in certain ways, and I dont think I ever will truly be happy with RTW pants, and a full collection of bespoke pants is out of my league right now, so I will just have to settle with the pants that I have, that I think are 90%+ there in terms of fit.

    Thanks for all the thumbs, guys. Just goes to show: if you put two outfits in the same post, a bunch of people will like one or the other.

    No such tricks today, as I stare transfixed at something just past the camera.

    This is going to sound ridiculous, but as a fellow owner of neck hair, pics are more well received if you crop the close up of the top block just at the collar top button to keep the neck bush out of view. I used to think, "who cares, screw you neck hair haters!!!!" But then I realized that any attempt at presenting yourself better is a decent idea.

    Like so:

    That being said, not a bad fit all in all. Not sure whats up with the divot on your right shoulder.

    Thanks!

    Nah, I struggle with the beard issue too. I always feel like cropping it there is too tight, but I can see how it would have its advantages.

    The divot... it's there. It's a little baby divot if I robopose, but I didn't feel like that today.

    EDIT: Here's a picture that shows how it sits naturally:

    From a fellow beardyman, I think yours looks hella scraggly and not in a good way I'm afraid. It's a mix of how your hair is cut/styled (or lack thereof) combined with the beard appearance that makes you look that way.

    PS: Nice suede pennys!

    Yeah, I need to get my hair cut, and this is the first time I've grown this much of a beard. It looked good last week, but terrible the week before, and so hopefully next week it will look good again. It's an experiment, but I justify it as a struggle beard for my thesis.

    And thanks.

    Definitely better. I would not worry about it much. The divot, that is.

    Haha, if you're doing a collegiate senior thesis (or grad school?), then I support the thesis beard! Also suggest a trimmer though ;)

    My current lighting situation makes me want to quilt.

    Yeah, I should do that. Thesis film, so getting to throw on a baseball cap and look exactly like Ron Howard is fairly funny.

    I dig that, Claghorn, I'm often tempted to wear my cord jacket with wool trousers, but I doubt my particular examples of each would work as well as yours do. And the bridle belt is a great touch.

    That would've been awesome, if only the tight jacket didn't spoil the look a little. Too bad, because I like the colours a lot.

    Well, it's mainly tight in the chest, which is usually do to muscle instead of fat.

    Clags, yeah man, that is some pretty weak lighting. You can't fix the colors on your computer or anything with Photoshop?

    Garry, super cool.
