    [​IMG] Yawn Steez: Brooks Bros J Crew Tummy by Kwilk Lucky jeans Ecco shoes Anyone have advice other than "lose weight" ?
    There's really no gentle way to say this. None of this works, and the phone (which is, somehow, even worse than my phone; I did not think this was possible) doesn't help. Lucky actually cuts fairly well; it's their fabrics that are horrible. However, these do not fit you well, and ironing your jeans is a bad life decision. The color of the sweater is unpleasant, and the bagginess just accentuates your weight. Hard to say anything about the shirt, but splaying the collar and cuffs out like that is not a good idea. Ecco shoes are generally best improved with fire. Overall rating: [​IMG]

    Thanks. I didn't iron my jeans, but I see the lines from being folded and see what you're talking about. Does the bagginess really accentuate the size? To me, it just seems if I wore a more fitting/tighter sweater it'd look ridiculous. I'll give it a try though and see what happens.
    I know my shoes blow. What's a better shoe for less than $150? I know i know, there are hundreds of threads about this.

    As a general rule, bagginess accentuates proportions. If you're skinny, you'll look skinner; if you're fat, you'll look fatter. Nothing is magically "slimming", but you will look better in a sweater that fits. Take a few pictures in a fitting room mirror if you want to test this.

    As far as shoes go, I guess Clarks desert boots are pretty popular here and relatively cheap (maybe 70ish?). With some reworking, they would suit the aesthetic you seemed to be going for.

    The more I wear this Robert Geller jacket, the more I'm not sure if I should be keeping it... I love pretty much everything about the jacket (brass buttons, pointed cuffs, standing collar) but I really dislike how the sleeve is done in two materials, a knitted cotton for the bottom half and a standard brushed cotton for the top half.

    Thoughts?

    That's the first APC fit I've liked, those petit standards look better than your Diors, I might have to pick up a pair some time.

    I've always disliked that geller jacket, pinoy. That, the coated toggle coat, and the himalaya (i think it's called) one. I dunno. Geller has some nice pieces this fall but a few kinda miss the mark unless you fully committ like the look book and runway pics.

    I think the sleeves are about the only thing I like on that jacket.

    I enjoy your use of the whiteboard.

    One of the more creative moments I've had in my lifetime...

    You've got the potential to rake in some serious $$$ as a doctor with handwriting like that.

    Haha. Thank you for the career advice.

    Thanks for your thoughts, chronoaug and arethusa. The Geller jacket does seem like quite the polarizing piece- either you love it or you don't. Exactly what is it that you don't like about the jacket- does it border on being too costumey?

    That's the first APC fit I've liked, those petit standards look better than your Diors, I might have to pick up a pair some time.
    Keep in mind the petite standards don't fit everyone! I'm a pretty short dude (5'8) and have pretty short legs (29" inseam w/o break) so I need jeans with a pretty low rise, which is what the petit standards have. Usually, most 'normal fitting' pants look like they have a slight dropped crotch on me [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Jacket: Vintage (Steinmark?) T: Gap Jeans: Gap Watch: Seiko w/ NATO strap. The jeans I got yesterday with a 30% off Friends&Family coupon, and are suprisingly nice. A lot of styling cues, I found, were taken from Earnest Sewn such as the back pockets, and the way the hem was sewn on the bottom of the inseam here it crosses and curves down. Leather patch is quite nice, and hidden rivets are a nice touch.

    That's a dope trench, Whodini. I like how you combined different shades of black/grey together.

    Feels like the shirt could use epaulets, but that's just me.

    How does that trench close? Are those the only exposed buttons? Zipper underneath? Looks good.
