1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I've seen a handful of good and a boatload of bad. If people ask me advice on the tuck, I tell them "NO!" because if you need to ASK, it surely looks bad. You need to have natural steez on the level of someone like JKissi to pull it off.

    Listirine, are you talking about untucking only being able to be pulled off by a brother, or tucking?

    this would work tucked, with a nice belt breaking up the blue/adding something of interest. it would be a slightly cleaner look though, I know synthese doesn't like clean.
    Exactly. The belt would have been perfect.
    Ya he's doing the thing I described, but it works so much better with non-bd shirts. Regardless, I do not do it myself, and would never. I've been a proponent of the tuck for years.
    I think with it works more often t-shirt, obviously being asymmetrical helps, hems but it's a rule of thumb and still has plenty of potential for failure. For every time that it works you've got ten times where it just looks wrong.
    You don't think the grey on black might look a little odd? I was afraid it might look monotonous.
    What's wrong with monotony? People do black on black on more black all the time. In your case, you still have some color in your shirt which you can see under the sweater.

    solution: don't wear sweaters

    I don't quite know how that would pan out in central/northern NY state during the winter season.

    A coat with what underneath? x___x

    And I'm not bitching. Montreal and NY have pretty similar weather/temperatures.

    its so strange, I often find that someone will express what I personally consider to be a pretty controvertible fashion opinion (ie, categorical dismissal of untucked bds under sweaters) and then everyone that comments will act like its completely obvious *shrug*

    personally, I feel like the success rate between tucking and untucking is pretty even. you dont need some superhuman steez to pull it off. its a different, grungier look, but I don't think its fair to say those that do it are just flailing for sprezz

    You have to admit, though, 9 times out of 10 it comes off exactly that way.

    unfortunately I don't have a gallery of successful sweater over bd fits on hand, but I think it works in synthese's fit and I don't exactly think it's breaking TKJTG's either

    it just doesn't come off as try hard or affected to me, I simply think its a more nonchalent stylistic choice

    Pretty sure that's called "sprezz," which is about as try-hard as you can get. If not, it's sloppy for the sake of being sloppy.

    It's not exactly a sin but it's the equivalent of putting on flip flops instead of shoes to grab something quick at the market down the street.

    Which is sometimes relevant, fashion-wise. Sometimes the best looks are the ones we don't think about.

    But I do think untucking is in general a conscious choice made by those who want to seem unaffected. Which is devastatingly ironic.
