    Yeah, but if Hyori indicated she had an interest, you'd best hop your ass on a plane post-haste.
    I only drink soju endorsed by her.
    I don't get the upturned cuff on bluejeans look. I don't care to look at seams and guts of your pants. If there's a selvedge, I still don't really care.
    If you don't like it, can't do much to convince you. It's a preference and adds some weight to the bottom. Sometimes it looks good. Sometimes it doesn't. Feel free to hate on people doing it just to show off selvage though. That's dumb.
    lol what.. your jacket ends at your wrist hanging on the side..thats a problem
    Some people have long arms and short bodies. Would need a better pic to see if the proportions are right or not. That said, I hate tie+sc+jeans, and hate DB with jeans more. At least he isn't wearing it with the DB open like tons of Korean guys do.

    Classic example of missing the forest for the trees, and how a little knowledge is sometimes worse than no knowledge at all.

    I agree, his jacket looks completely proportionate. Perhaps he has long arms in comparison to his torso; regardless, one should develop an "eye' for what is proportionate rather than attempting to apply abstract rules (which, for the large part, are helpful, but only to help one understand the proportions) ineffectively.

    Yes I whole-heartedly agree. I've been selling custom suits for over a decade. I saw the "grab jacket" fad come and go and the "nape to bottom same as bottom to top of heal." Any tailor or measurer worth his weight will do it by eye. High-waisted men always have long arms, but need shorter jackets. I'll upload more photos soon of the same shoot to compare.

    Exactly - the rules are there as a guide to proportionality, but not hard and fast; not everyone is 50% torso and 50% leg.

    Yeah, those armory guys always look good without looking like they were dressed for the photo.

    Actually, that's Takahiro from Liverano in the above photo.

    ^ that look is nice, but I feel not everyone can pull it off. I think a plain white shirt would look a bit nicer though.

    Can I be your apprentice?

    Photoshoot I did last month (shameless self-plug)...

    Great fit on the jacket (if just a tad short in my purely subjective view), but I don't think such a conservative jacket works with the jeans. [​IMG]
