    Its something different. Designers have been trying to make transprarency hot for a while now and I think they are just getting the hang of it recently. Calvin Klein S/S 10 was incredible this year and it was all because Italo Zucchelli mastered how to make see through clothes look good. Transparency is even practical for warmer weather. I also like it because it gives you even more of a chance to play with color layering which can be somewhat of a challenge in the summer since you have to wear less clothes. I dont recommend it to everyone though, just people that like to mix it up and wear something different.

    Lanvin has been doing really well regarding light fabrics.

    I didn't censor any substantive criticism. There's a lot of it. I just started doing a better job of deleting comments that were racist or merely expletive-loaded personal attacks. I've had to delete quite a few aimed at my wife. I just don't want to be associated with any of those things and don't think they add anything to discussion.

    The Sart does so religiously. I once posted that one of the woman in his post looked like she's wearing an 80's prom dress made from curtain material. Guess what, that post got censored. So, if you sensor any criticisms on your blog, of course you're only left with gushing praise. Call it survivorship bias.

    I think that's the #1 reason that makes him detestable. His cookie-cutter photos and choices are annoying but not nearly as bad as this.

    What about this one? I think I may have seen some comments on this here before. I am sure there is alot to nitpick here...the tightness of the pants, the chambray tab collar shirt, the huge knot, the loafers..etc.

    However, aside from the knot size, I like this. I like this suit alot, actually.

    I like the suit's material but the buttoning stance looks ridiculously low, non?

    The blog isn't a style critique blog, it is frequented by the people posted in the pictures and he wants to keep a friendly and positive atmosphere, you can't blame him for having different aims than the ones you'd like him to have.

    It's not that, the suit just does not fit. The roll is well past the waist button, the collar does not grip his neck, the sleeves are too long, the vest balance is long, the trousers are tight and too long, etc.

    The shirt collar is also too low and too small.

    But if this is "fashion" then all my points are misplaced.

    Well then he should just disable comments and not pretend that it is an interactive place.

    Her dress is too long - I can't critique her knees.
