    Doesn't everyone aspire to look like the Forward model with the forehead tattoo?

    Especially so out here in techdork land.

    If you are selling cars, the guy you want to see on your lot is wearing techdork fleece vest, floppy jeans, heinous sneakers, and id badge attached by tether to belt loop but no belt. If you see someone in a suit, tell him to beat it or you will call security.

    I know I'm hardly the most up-to-date guy, but where has Suzuki Daiki been all my life? Damn, Engineered Garments' stuff is nice...

    Isaora always has that crazy deal on their official website, except it only makes me skeptical of their quality. Not to mention their fit is quite wonky :/

    Whenever I see a cool EG fit or someone mentions it here, I return to context's selection only to be reminded that the brand isn't made for tall weedy dudes. Boo

    EG is one of those things I've admired from afar thus far...tried a couple of the workshirts last fw and just ended up looking like the fanciest hobo on the block.

    anti-fit isn't for everyone, but I think anti-fit coupled with wide shoulders = hobo-fit

    against my better judgement, have my eye on the shoulder cape, and a couple of other jackets this season though

    I had a vision of a pair of textured (either a very subtle pattern and/or weave of the fabric) black trousers, likely in wool or cotton...anyone seen anything like this?

    No. Textured black trousers do not exist, never have existed, and will never exist.

    Try a bedford or Baker jacket. They are the gateway drugs - sorta like the Stark cardigan is for S.N.S. Herning - easy to wear, look good on most people, look good over most casual stuff, and really good examples of good dressed up dress down.

    Trying to pack only a carry-on for a 4.5 day trip to NYC that involves 1) a wedding and 2) a restaurant with a dress code is not conducive to nice fits. Also, being busy the whole day leading up to said dinner reservation makes life planning more complicated as I won't be able to head back and change beforehand.

    Textured black trousers: Dries, Zam, Lanvin, tons of SZ type brands

    You're not really going to have any luck e-shopping, it's really hard to capture texture on black and most shops don't take the time. Look at Dries, Ann, and Margiela for normal cut trousers, and most of the SZ brands for weird J-shape, raw-edge, etc. If you're going for the former you'll probably have to just order a bunch and see what they look like IRL.

    Edit: actually dries doesn't do a ton in black. KVA as well though

    I think you should reconsider. Having no luck with web stores ("They *are* sold online, they are *not* sold online! She's my sister -- slap! -- daughter -- slap! -- She's my sister and my daughter!") I've had a WTB ad up for a couple months, and have received numerous emails from people who know how to measure; almost all of the Mediums, as well as some of the Smalls, and even even a smattering of Larges, would be a perfect fit for you, at least in the chest. Most weren't shorter than 28-29 inches, either, so I don't think you'd look like you robbed a dollhouse, if that's your worry.

    IMO, their more breezy stuff, gusting with volume, is also cut for someone taller, and I have a few pics of me looking like The Human Square! to pan that out.

    Do it, Bam. Do it.

    c'mon son you asked the question in a rather baroque manner, it deserved a touch of ridicule

    I foresee one of these in the future.

    Bam! I've seen some of the jackets look good on taller, skinny dudes...pants less so. And the shirts I tried were a disaster.

    Luckily, I am a short, not-so-weedy dude. Given that most other things in the fashion universe are made for tall, thin people, it's only fair that we get nice things occasionally... [​IMG]

    Mr. Suzuki himself is 6' IIRC and he designs clothes that fit him so I would say its fine to be tall and wear EG.

    hey, it's you guys (well, technically me too i guess, though i'm on the cusp on the older end)

    Millennial Males Are Brand Conscious Yet Rebel Against Mass Culture
    Survey from Complex Media Details Rise of 'Bespoke Male'

    http://adage.com/article/special-re...2013/millennial-males-brand-conscious/244308/

    Not sure I'd say this "contradicts many assumptions about millennial males." Can't really figure out which assumptions he means. Would love to know if they asked that 81% who'll pay more for "quality" what they think "quality" means. It is also a study by Complex about Complex's core demographic that reinforces what Complex already thinks, so keep that in mind.
