    Hmmm

    OK, change "never" to "extremely rarely, and basically only when other bespoke clothing from fawned over members is posted." How's that?

    Re: Fit Critique: BB Fitzgerald on a large guy?

    Looks better than a lot of the bespoke we've been seeing around here recently. I don't think it's bad for your physique at all--except, I think it needs to be longer.

    Foo takes "critique" to a whole 'nother level every time he offers it. He ONLY criticizes, and never posts anything 'nice' bout anyone's fits (why?). He jabbers on and on compulsively and without reproach (why?). Perhaps critique with some positives mixed in would provide a more true and more believable form of judgment, but as I see it he just does it to be an ass and it's hard to take seriously.

    I'm a dick when people are dicks to me, on the Internet or otherwise. Read above, Foo. When the criticism is all negative, it's hard to see where the personal-ness of it ends and the unbiased-ness begins.

    Let's assume you are right and I'm significantly more likely to compliment clothes made by fancy, world-renowned tailors than clothes someone sniped on eBay, while you are more likely to compliment everything equally: who's more credible?

    I rarely compliment anyone on anything. I also rarely criticize. You criticize far more than you compliment. What does this say about you? What does it say about me? Who is generally more reserved and who needs to criticize others for no reason? Why would this happen?

    It's funny, to have to vote for Bad Taste. Are we talking about clothing bad taste ? or bad taste as in bad behaviour ?
    I for one always thought that even in english there was a difference between critisizing, which is more like judging of merit, be it in a good way or in bad way and denigrate, which to me is closer to what foo is doing regarding moo ?
    Would someone that masters the english language care to explain ?
