    Am getting used to oly shoes, form is better with them on, but I move less weight. Doing a tonne of squat volume did 5x5 back squats 3x5 front squats, might increase to squatting 5 times a week to get more volume in.

    Knucks face is happier then I thought it would be, expected he would have that angry dave tate face.

    I'll get a picture when I can. I don't post waywt's very often but next time I do, I'll wear those Outliers.


    You're going to get a better look with a top with more room in it. Especially in the torso. It'll prevent it from bunching up like that in the waist. Though, your legs don't look like stumps any longer! ;)

    knucks, i'm just going to say that I hate all of the advice that SW&D is giving you. The collective hard-on for drape is a perfect example of group-think taking over.

    You've got a good body. Show it off, don't obscure it.

    That being said, for the look you're going for, uniqlo tees will probably work best for you. Also, you might even have decent luck with a schott perfecto rather than some $$$ gothninja brand (that is, if you can't scrape together the cash for a ToJ before MTM ends)

    i disagree. i think the dropcrotch aesthetic is working, but imo the pants could be slimmer in the thighs. the width of the upper block kinda gives the impression of an hourglass and imo hourglass shapes dont really look good on guys

    You can avoid having an intense hourglass by having a slightly less-slim shirt through the body. Also, the shilouette things that Knucks likes he could get by just wearing loose-waisted, high-rise jeans with a sag, rather than going full dropcrotch.

    More like rectangle shape than an hourglass. Kind of like this guy

    SW&D Drape-fapping is a totally secondary. issue.

    What? knucks finally looks like he can breathe in his clothes. He's on the right track. But I should note that I've always thought Graphic Novelty wears his tees way, way too small (sup, nipples?).

    this is true and i agree. i do feel like knucks biz caz fits could be improved by wearing shirts with a wider body

    I just think heavy dropcrotch/drape is gonna make your legs look hella short. You don't want to end up looking like this guy

    The drapey shit is cool, but I can't wear it all the time. I got a MTM shirt coming my way in a week or two, still on the lookout for a well fitting pair of pants. I need denimz broz.
