    Are you standing lopsided or can the tailor not cut a straight line on a shirt hem?

    I disagree. I think he should hem the jeans, but if he went with slim or skinny jeans the shoes would look enormous. A slim jean with a very slight bootcut might be the most flattering cut for him.
    I never said skinny. I'm about his size from what i can see and 8-8.25" hem is normal. He's obviously past the fashion disaster stage but there's nothing wrong with subtle critique. I know he likes them and it's easier to accept a bootcut for your first forum jean than a straight leg or slightly tapered (also, slightly tapered doesn't mean skinny, i even made this point). I believe the bootcut ola is a really slim jean from the mid calf up. I'm not sure what the knee is but i'm guess about 8". I think making it 8" straight down or maybe slight boot like 8.25" would be fine. I also disagree that the shoes would look massive and throw the outfit off. He wouldn't be the first person to wear dress shoes with jeans with a straight or slightly tapered hem and it doesn't look bad or too big at all. If it was a really small 7" hem that barely fits on the shoe, then it'd look pretty bad and i would agree. I disagree that simply hemming them making them almost dangle over the shoes would look better. I think the problem is opening size, not length.


    I think who, posted jet's best fit yet. Whatever happened to that 1-2 blurry mirror pics that jet actually took a few months ago. Did tim donaghy put together and photograph those fits or something? I'm confused

    that YSL jacket is rad. I think there was a GQ spread a few months ago where Topher Grace was wearing the same jacket in blue and it's definite eye candy to see someone wearing it.

    When you hem a bootcut jean, the leg opening gets smaller, because the leg opening increases from knee to hem. The BOLA flares out only in the last few inches. Hemming a BOLA makes it a straight leg jean, or close to it. Anyways, I think hemming it a few inches would help with the stacking issue and also make it look a bit straighter, but I think a bigger leg opening isn't a bad thing for him anyways. I'm not sure what shoe size you wear chronoaug, but I believe Raz is like 13-13.5, so bigger leg openings help cover a bit of that.

    I feel like we should vote on where Bobo should take his next random shot. I say the butcher/deli section.

    Great. Nice and easy.
    Thanks, btw. I'm probably going to get it hemmed because this looks like the kind of shirt you could pull off untucked. Right now it goes to around halfway down my knees.

    Really happy to find my first "tropical" shirt because they don't actually sell them here in the tropics.

    Thanks guys. Sorry I couldnt take a better pic of that watanabe jacket which has excellent seamwork and a lot of interesting details.

    Too many fresh and excellent outfits from the last few pages.

    SocalNYC: I dont think I havent liked even one of your business wear. Hope I could dress like that later.

    Lel, thats a good look. Btw youreally look like a former classmate of mine. You didnt go to highshool in san fran, did you?

    jpgm, this looks great too but i like you trench+jeans+boots look even more. Cheers.

    Kallun, raf jeans looked very nice. They fit you well.

    bobo, I am usually not a fan of workwear style, but you pulled them off very nicely, as always.
