    Yep, there's nothing about that fit that interests me. Looks like some guy dressed for another day at the office.

    I guess what interests me is that it still has an amazing silhouette despite the fact that the pants aren't slim.

    different strokes.

    where the hell do you live that the average person is wearing a suit that fits perfectly, along with shoes that aren't square toe kenneth coles?
    I don't mean to imply that his fit is the average for where I live, or anywhere, I meant that it looks very business-y and uninteresting to me. It's cool if you're really into the fit of the suit and like the outfit, but to me it's just kinda lame and conservative. I don't understand why people are showering him with praise for it.

    i was just being amused by the stiffness of the photo, not giving a critique of his suit/him as a whole

    to be fair he even criticized himself on that by doing a photoshop of a bunch of mannequins being set up at a shop except it was all one of his fits

    brings up a good point about how a few small things like posture/hair/glasses can change the overall feel of the pic. Compare these two:

    tell me if I would have gotten any praise at all for the second pic

    i think that even though we're judging pictures, we can't remove the "human" element of personality and other important elements -- such as facial appearance and hair style -- from an outfit

    none of these things are exclusive of each other, they're all parts of a greater "stylish person"

    One of the nice things about minimum-wage work is you can generally go on autopilot and let your mind wander.

    To that end:

    I like my women like I like my denim: slim, tight, and slightly distressed.
    I like my women like I like my overcoats: cheap, tan, and double-breasted.
    I like my women like I like my shoes: cool and attractive, but it's only a matter of time until you see Kanye in them.

    I always feel that suits don't really translate that well in online pics compared to more casual outfits
