    The outfit fits well and looks natural, and I have nothing negative to say about it. However my point still stands. all he really needs is tiger fleece of some sort and red moon in his pocket to complete the outfit... :-\\

    I am of two minds about this. "Dressed by the Internetzz" has a rather negative vibe about it, and I think that it need to be reserved for the really terrible outfits that are a mismash of brands or pieces heavily hyped on the Internet.

    Often, the brands or pieces are just very nice (the first post about the Engineered Garments Bedford was actually one of mine, in my now dead thread "What I would wear if I had $1500K extra"). If people didn't want to share information and enthusiasm or get some ideas, then these fora would lose a large part of their raison d'etre.

    That said, some people have rather strong opinions about pieces that they've only seen on the web.

    well said LA Guy. what's the difference if i see pieces in a magazine, on the street or on the internet? just about everyone that posts in waywt has pieces on that they were inspired by on this forum. not sure why u picked out mine?

    Indeed, "dressed by the internet" should be reserved for some of the shit you see on Superfuture that says Supreme/AA/Dior/Visvim over and over. I mean, it's a nice, solid fit with a good silhouette, but it gets really tired after awhile.

    Hey spaceman, I was also in Vegas last weekend and saw you on my flight. I remember some dude wearing that AA sweatshirt and Nudie jeans now that you posted that picture, since I was also wearing my Nudies. Small world.

    hey... thats weird... which flight was it?

    Out and about today, going to visit my girlfriend. Wearing my RAF Squadron Leader's Greatcoat - totally crazy piece of clothing, this incredibly thick melton wool coat tailored by Gieves of 1 Savile Row in the WWII era for some guy called M.H. Keen. It's the kind of thing an officer would wear on a snowy airstrip or a carrier flightdeck, got it from England and it's incredibly badass and crazy and warm. Slightly ridiculous, but I don't care.

    sorta hard to actually make out the gear, but the photo itself is ridiculously BADASS looking.

    2nd pic shows some good detail...I really like what you got going on there.

    the coolness of the top 2 pics esp makes the 3rd headless shot suck like donkeydick

    Augusto, I;ll just echo the sentiments of Jason....and add that I think this pciture is as good a it gets...the composition of the pictures, the fit of the clothes and just the badassness of that overcoat, outstanding.

    Augusto, I notice you are usually wearing bootcut jeans, and always with boots. [​IMG] But, just curious if you have any tapered or straight leg jeans, or if there is a specific reason you don't like them.

    Yeah, it did. I deleted it. Thanks for the props!

    I loathe tapered jeans, always have. Presumably, always will. I don't like 'em on girls except with knee boots and never on men.

    I love boots, so I buy a lot. But I would like to get some straight-leg jeans - some APCs or 5EPs or whatnot wouldn't go amiss at all, but I just can't afford to splurge on nice denim right now and I want to buy another nice raw pair.

    In reality, I only have 2 "SF"-style jeans - Nudie Bjorns and Olas, both at least 3 years old. I also have some R&Rs and some PDCs I wear from time to time.
