    Lance doesn't drink liquor. Muthafucka drinks pure bile.
    Agreed. Workwear done right.
    Seriously? I mean, the clothes fit and shoes look nice but... "workwear" equals rocking bare ankles with wingtips?

    Polo hate is one of the weirdest examples of SF groupthink I can think of. That and OMG (regular) GATs! I would posit that it's at least partially because polos look bad on skinny dus. Also, because they're pretty bland (though the same could be said for solid colored OCBDs, etc.) and have negative associations (suburban dad/best buy salesman). However, like anything SF usually disagrees with (Pre-faded jeans, graphic tees) work it into something the right way and haters gon' hate. Speaking of "things that look bad on [bodytype]" Crazyjew, if you're a shorty like me, buy yourself a cropped leather jacket instead of a blazer with your $400 gilt credit. Blazers are always gonna look kinda funny and gilt has a million leather jackets all the time.
    I'm new to this forum so I don't get how I'm part of SF groupthink. In fact my hatred for polos is also what got me to revamp my wardrobe of boring. Also, listi the clothes in that pic looks badass.

    He's right. Fit is bad. Too big in the shoulders and sleeves are too big in both width and length. The piece itself is awesome and i have nothing but good things to say about TOJ but from that pic the sizing looks way off and not good. [​IMG]

    check my fit pics, brah. nothing but compliments on the fit of my clothes.

    I've never been any different, admittedly i dont eat as much as i should now (i eat big meals, but barely eat anything before the evening.) But back when i was eating 3 meals a day i was exactly the same size. Starting a new job soon so will be back to a regular routine and eating more regularly, so i'll see if that adds any weight but i doubt it. I did 3000-3500 calories a day for a few weeks and never gained so much as a pound. I have a long neck though so i guess in terms of body size im more like 5'11.

    ^lol. Love it when he spends all their money on crisps instead. You are right about that pic though. I dunno how old crazy jew is but it just looks like he's playing dress up, which isnt a criticism but i've been through that stage as well. I mean realistically, when are you going to need to dress like that at your age? It doesnt look right on you. Plus the fact that everything is a little big and sloppy looking doesnt help. I think you should try to go for a more casual look to avoid the "playing dress up" image, and start by getting a really well fitting pair of slim jeans...that 6 inch cuff just doesnt look good.

    ^"Playing dress up"? "Go for a more casual look"? Just stop dude.

    CrazyJew looks a lot better without the goatee. As has been mentioned, your clothes don't fit. What you need to do is look around. Really look. Look at other peoples WAYWTs, look at runway shows, look at lookbooks. You need to get a good idea of how proportion and silhouette work and how to communicate that on your frame. Before you go dropping flow on badly designed clearance high end shit on GILT you should probably go to H&M or Zara or maybe Urban Outfitters and just put some clothes on your body that actually fit you, so you have some semblance of what a proper fit on you looks and feels like. You don't have to actually buy anything, just go into one of those stores, grab a bunch of clothes in different sizes and try them on till you get it right. Take a good hard look. Realize what works and what doesn't. Don't be afraid to go slim or skinny. Tapered clothes look better on the vast majority of people, dudes are just fucking scared. Pretty often seems like fear of being perceived as not manly or feeling like their body type wouldn't work in those kinds of clothes. Seriously, get over your anxiety and fear of being looked at differently. Just put it on, you will realize it's not weird, it's not a big deal, and you look a million times better.

    ^what exactly do you want me to stop...dude? You basically just rubbished my reply and then said the same thing that everyone else has said. You offered some good advice in studying lookbooks and silhouettes, and i offered good advice in avoiding "dad clothes" before you have the basics e.g well fitting slim jeans. I feel thats its best to experiment with smaller things before you dive into more advanced looks because otherwise you end up looking out of place and like you threw on a bunch of ill-considered clothes. Im not an expert but i have been through the phase that crazyjew seems to be in at the moment, and that is my advice. Please dont act like you are the sole authority on internet fashion advice when in reality, neither you nor I are even close.

    it does if you want raw ankles and dirty shoes! I think it looks nice though as said...but wouldn't say the shoes are something you'd go out and work in.

    I did, but I think I lost it now that my ribs are starting to show again.

    You sound obsessed.....Have you previously had trouble with obesity?

    This post is true in every way.

    @Abliss: lmao no, I am just playing off of the random hate and trolling matching their sarcasm/spite with overreaction. But I love my body and I love being skinny, it has become an identity thing for me. I eat like a maniac and consume vast amounts of heavy beer, my size is genetic. My dad was apparently 140lbs or so at 35, so I've got a long time before I need to worry about my metabolism.
