    I live in a crumpled up newspaper.

    No means of income? What does that have to do with being a student. Just sound lazy to me.

    i understand that the intent of going for the casual luxury look but am i the only one who thinks this looks sloppy? the same with other yohji yamamoto stuff, just looks sloppy.

    Once you see it enough, it'll really grow on you. Trust me. I hated FTB's fits at first, now they're one of my favourites. He made me rethink my concept of what constitutes a good fit.

    Sidney, that fit is spectacular ... wow.

    I know they'll shrink to fit but that "poofy" crotch is not cool!

    I like the color set of the outfit as a whole, and those jeans are one of the more flattering cuts I've seen on you.

    This is a terrible example of faux whiskering, I'm surprised Drizzt would opt for these when he has so many jeans that are better.

    This looks great to me, I especially like the longer pocket proportions on the shirt. Looser fits doesn't automatically = sloppy.

    On wiru's pic--I think the bedford would look fine if the hoodie was dropped.

    Is one of those sleeves rolled up?


    thanks for the comments guys. i agree about the hoodie. trying to find an interesting way to wear it, and this wasn't it. yeah, the sleeves are turned up a bit. i can only pull a drizzt and say the bedford looks fine irl.

    the clarks are next level awesome. you need to catch up! [​IMG]

    I was going for the highest level of contrast possible with a nice indigo tone, which obviates the possibility of it looking natural. My aesthetic concept is obviously the opposite of FTB's in that I want the silhouette to be completely clean with no extra material whatsoever.

    FtB seems to look more comfortable in his clothes than anybody else. He also reminds me of a Hayao Miyazaki character.

    yeah the yohji look is an acquired taste...probably one of the designers whose aesthetic is least accessible to those who are used to traditional standards of style and tailoring. Precisely why i like it; i feel free in these clothes.

    I think that in theory this makes sense, but not necessarily in practice. I am used to, and wear, almost exclusively "traditional" clothing, but if asked to pick a favorite out of all of the designers, ojhi would be my clear choice. Perhaps I have been innoculated, as my mother wore a lot of Yojhi for years, and my wife wears a bit as well, but to me it is more interesting, both in construction and idea, than almost anything else out there.

    I like it and would say it is comfortable and relaxed and not sloppy. While it works for what he is going for, Superbobo would be "sloppy". And on the other end is Drizztz who is uncomfortable as a packed sausage.

    Ain't enough room in those jeans for any sausage.
