youre too kind.
also, looks like youre gonna crush it.
This surprises me. IMHO the guy gets fucked with and catches more shit than anyone else I can think of.
Great fits fellas. O really knocked it out of the park. This fit made him look 25lbs leaner.
Stitch, great coat. You know how much I love that windowpane.
eh, its not just him. I feel like WAWRYN has turned into a competition over whose got the ugliest sportcoat, combined with a tie made of corrugated cardboard (TEXTURE!!!!!!) and suede shoes. This includes spoo and other bigtimers.
fwiw, i think Rdiaz puts up some of the best looking outfits on a consistent basis
Stitchy looks fine. Bad photo and angle throws the spectrum of fit. Only part of his outfit I think that could be improved in its current form are slightly different fitting pants.
You got to respect his ambition to try something out - it is too easy and obvious to go solid Navy jacket here. Although I suspect in this regard, the easiest and most obvious thing often ends up working best.
You did well with choosing the three button sport coat / jacket and utilizing solid colors here. Good coordination and fit.
Would have preferred the jacket buttoned in the middle. If jacket a touch too small, 50bucks would fix that since there should be an inch or so of let out room a tailor could utilize.
+1 to this. Stitchy catches a lot of shit and mostly takes it well, so I'm not sure where this is coming from.
Now that I will agree with. There has been a lot of garbage in WAYWRN lately.
Honestly, I think this is a big part of it. I always think his jackets are too short, but I'm about 75% sure that it's a perspective issue rather than a fit issue.
I think both outfits are rather nice, specially considering it's all RTW stuff. Sure they're not perfect but we're not getting tons of bespoke fits in WAYWRN lately. These are very nice for what they are.
^^ thanks klobber, nice to see you as always ^^
What brought me to wear the coat I chose today was that I had wanted to wear that coat and this tie together. The rest of the fit was built around that.
Well, that is a fine opinion, and many share it with you. And now that that's said I think we can leave it at that, we have more than enough threads complaining about the state of WAYWRN. Let's let this continue as a fun and lighter thread. Thanks.
I will agree that Diaz does put up some stellar fits.
^^ for all the #2 that gets thrown to Stitchy, he's a great sport..Now regarding this fit (and majority of his other pics), imo the imbalance has something to do with his trouser/pents but I cannot explain it...
I actually agree--I personally think they are tapered too much, which lends a slight pear shape on larger men. But, I believe he likes the taper, so to each his own.
These are my most tapered pants. By far. I do like them, but they are not my favorite fitting pants. Ideally I like them a little bit less tapered and snug. Both for comfort and for looks.
And as mentioned, the angle that the picture is taken at does not exactly help. But the other option for now is to not post pictures at all. I don't think anyone gains from that.
Had I known I was up for a fit battle, I probably would've chosen something else. However I like this organic fit battle. We have had planned ones in the past, and I think each has its own benefits.
I don't think in_stitches's fit is as off as its being portrayed in some comments here, but I do think Orgetorix does better on a number of details. The square, the pant cuffs, he has a nice bit of shirt cuff showing. I like the check on in_stitches's coat, but I think it does go to Orgetorix overall, with the square versus lack of square being the tipping point.
oh yeah? this is the first ive heard of this. tell me more....
whether or not i agree with the state of WAYWRN is irrelevant in this thread.
I agree on stitchy's pents....may be the pose, may be the angle, may be the shoes, may be the taper.....more than likely its all of the above. not bad by any stretch...just a hair off.
O raised an interesting point that i didnt notice..his jacket is too small to button. c'est la vie. Looks fantastic.
LOL, you go the opposite to me. I first decide on the pants and shoes I will wear and then fit a shirt tie jacket around it. It seems neither of us have time to try on 10 different combos to work out what looks best for a given day. I have taken to suits more lately since half the battle is won and choices are plainly obvious.
Such is life although I would not mind a 2 hour slot in which to play dress up just me and the mirror or audience
Let me guess. The good taste thread is where it's at...
anyway stitches... U lost this one but I still love us :air kisses:
Stitchy, take my criticisms with a grain of salt. This is really not a bad fit by any stretch.
I do really like this organic fit battle. It's a great idea, and fun.
