    I'll try to scan the picture I have from her in a magazine pinning on a male model.

    Keep talking out of your gaping cock holster trend hopper.

    WMmk - Your fit does seem a bit odd; your upper half looks very boxy.
    his sleeves look too short
    the shirt is too short period.
    I have to agree that the shirt looks too short.
    The shape of the bottom of the shirt bugs me. Above and below that, it looks like it fits well.
    Hmmm. A BoO medium probably would be too big in the chest/waist, and they don't make tall sizes anymore. Is the BoO shirt even worth keeping? If not, is my best option just to buy casual shirts that are meant to be tucked, and then have them darted and hemmed (but not as short as BoO)?

    WMMK- Skinny jeans aren't always the answer.
    I know the APC's aren't the greatest for what I'm going for, but I don't really have money for any other pants right now. When I do have more cash on hand, I'll still be at a bit of a loss from something that works with the trad look but also doesn't made me look like a brah. A lot of people associate sperrys/khakis/OCBD fits with frat boys, and that isn't really what I'm going for. I don't know if I have the steeze to rock tweed trousers to high school...

    Or is denim ok, as long as it's an NS/501-esque cut?

    Don't despair. There are plenty of other slim OTR shirts that are cut longer than BoO. The Shipley & Halmos small I have is as slim (or slimmer) than my small BoO, but longer in the arms and body. There are many other brands that would probably fit you just fine. BoO just doesn't seem to be for you.

    If all else fails, you can always go MTM.

    WMMK - find a tailor who can make shirts for you; they will probably set you back $90 - $120 a piece, but often times there is a minimum order.

    I met with a tailor today who is going to make two shirts for me: one gingham and one candy stripe. I will soon have two shirts that fit me just as good if not better than BoO and the total price is going to about the price of one BoO.

    This is just a suggestion, but it would definitely be worth your while to check out some of your local tailors.

    Unless I'm missing something the length of the BOO shirt looks fine. As long as your wearing an undershirt I don't see the problem. Also I'm quite sure you won't look like a frat boy.

    The sleeves are too short, and while I can't tell for sure, it seems like his belt and possibly his undershirt are exposed on the sides. You're right about the frat-boy though: No one is going to think wmmk is in a frat.

    The sleeves come up above his wrists. If it had longer arms and was slimmer on him, he could get away with the really cropped front I think, but it's just looking a little off. Not BAD or a tragedy, to my eye, but I'm sure wmmk is ridiculously annoyed by the fit. I sure would be. When you like something but it's off by just a bit, ugh that's the WORST.

    yet again I think wmmk fits look good while people have a problem with it.

    ^ The body is too short, particularly on the sides. Being able to see the outline of his hips = do not want.

    He's also standing still, with hands straight down on the side. When in motion, it'd look too much like something his mother bought when he was 10.

    It's a tad short, you can see his belt on the sides and the wrists are in clear view, your body type is akin to that of many fashion designers though, as its pretty much the quintessential model physique (granted, you're not as muscular/shapely/physically flawless as a model, no offense). I think you just need to look for another brand, the amount of brands that make slim fitting button ups is massive. This may sound rude, but if you can't find a nice fitting shirt for a slim tall guy (as long as they aren't 6'7) you aren't looking hard enough. Be glad you don't have my problem (I'm too short) :p

    This is nice, I think a great addition would be some 'bling', maybe a gold necklace or a nice pair of aviators, a point of interest, as my eyes currently don't know where to focus. Just a suggestion

    I'm cool with wmmk, i just don't think it looks good. Slim slim slim slim everywhere doesn't look good unless done right. There is good slim/skinny and bad. Opening pickle jars, coughing? Bad. Hair brushing? Good. It can be more complicated i guess. wmmk- the length probably wouldn't be as much a problem if the pants weren't low rise like the NC. Also, i've told you before, but the trad look you enjoy so much doesn't exactly work with wearing everything skin tight. Or if you do want to dress super skinny, you're gonna have to do a bit more hipster-preppy. Lose the bland color schemes. Play with color (not saying neon or super bright), and don't try to look like an old man but skinnier. Check out some look books for this current spring for ideas to play around with. If you look at the BoO lookbooks, the models look well put together, but not old/fratty like you want. Then again, they're not wearing really skinny raw jeans.

    Fucking sharp. I've been noticing that we've been dressing rather similarly lately. Let's form a dance fighting gang.
    sure thing,Are we the sharks or the jets? This is nice, I think a great addition would be some 'bling', maybe a gold necklace or a nice pair of aviators, a point of interest, as my eyes currently don't know where to focus. Just a suggestion kunk is where you focus, its a good thing you are in australia... or he'd repossess your car and then leave a snow angel in your yard.

    Xenox, shut the fuck up. Don't offer your "advice" until you step up your game.

    I hate to say it, but he has a point: Kunk would look much better with a giant gold chain.

    WWMK, just give up on BoO until you find a Tall version of thier shirts, its just not for you. I can't believe you dont even fit in BoO though, I mean models are skinny but you are a bit too skinny eh?

    Anyway, if the shirt doesnt fit, normally its whatever. But you paid over 100$ for that shirt, it should be perfect. Return it or sell it man.

    You're right, he should add a pinky ring. Also, some exposed chest hair would be a nice addition, that way my eyes would have a focal point.

    ... ... Ok, I'll post awesome WAYWT pics and then you'll treat me like a normal individual who's allowed to provide criticism and advice to others? Deal. Seriously, what the hell is everyone's problem? Can't I suggest something without having steezy pictures on here? So much fucking prejudice, it's just the internet, I thought the POINT of the internet was that anonymous was allowed to give their input without it being held to the weight of their persona. Besides, none of you know how I dress these days, so your just being ignorant by saying "STFU", thinking you know my dress sense sucks. Oh and..
