Alright i found this website a few days ago. It did two things to me. 1. Made me want to buy some Dr. Martens 2. Forced me to start caring about how i look. Heres a Picture of what i bought today, Please be harsh and cruel, but at the same time be constructive. Imma Newb
Oh and BTW, i make 8 USD an hour so i cant afford Most name brand stuff. I shop at old navy and other stores with similiar prices.
My Opinion : i think the shirt is a bit to big (that was a medium from Old Navy) And i think i need to lose a little weight to really be able to get this to work well. And gain some Muscle Mass. Thanks for your time! Oops, i think this was supposed to go into the street clothing forum.

Hello and welcome,

Gain weight and forget about the muscles (everyone wants to have, but muscles come from hard work and we are all living in paradise and work in an office).

Are there any shoes you like other than Dr. Martens?

Forget about brands. The right fit and the right colors (and complexion) are most important.

Read and have fun.

Yours

Nothing wring with muscles. If you want to, then go work out.

When you have finished reading through "WAYWT 1 + 2" here and in S&D, it will be x-mas 2010. So that should be okay to begin with. Just browse this forum and download the outfits you like.

I don't think you need to loose weight. Yes, the shirt is too big and personally, I don't like the color. The pants might be a bit slimmer, too.

The pants might be too long, too.

Some muscle would help (it would help get rid of any belly fat that, just a guess, is your concern) and make it easier to find 'mall brand' shirts that fit okay. For polo shirts, the Penguin brand probably would fit you well. Currently the sleeves are too long, the shirt length and shoulder width possibly too long, and the body too baggy.

Also, the kind of service offered below exists because there aren't any other decent, affordable shortcuts to informal style.

I've been unhappy with Doc Martens quality, though I love their style. Basically, the soles wear down to nothing within a year, and they can't be resoled. The uppers still look great after the year, and it's frustrating throwing them out. If you're OK with that, then give them a shot.

I personally don't think that polo shirts look good on young, skinny guys like you and me. It's personal preference, but when I've worn one it doesn't fit well and seems to accentuate the part of my physique I'm not thrilled about. Seeing the fit of that shirt on you looks about like the way they fit on me.
