    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    the shirt and tie are too much

    I know my pant fits are unorthodox with the no break on raw denim - don't see it a ton. I could be tricking myself, visually, but I think it works, for me. But I understand people's criticisms, completely. Again I am having a denim dilemma and that's probably my biggest current problem which I need help with (also why I tend to gravitate towards chinos..). Someone knowing me and my skinny legs recently recommended a model of Samurais which I want to look into, along with Iron Heart. I'm really poorly schooled on raw denim manufacturers (outside of nudie, which I always just got because of the nice selection of cuts and sizes they offer) so I need to invest some time in those threads. If anyone has any suggestions for a slim legged person, 5'8", with a small waist (27", embarrassing - sounds manorexic, I know) would welcome those leads...

    I don't have anything against the no break in raw denim thing. I'm not a huge fan myself. I like cuffs.

    Have you considered APC Petit Standards? I would talk to the folks at Context, Mortar, Selfedge, or one of the other affiliates here who has lots of raw denim and ask them for their opinions. You are definitely not the first one with this problem.

    unffff

    dsoren why would you facepalm this


    My facepalm was in reference to "double fisting..."

    But, I like the Tom Ford sportcoat in this color look. But an entire suit? + gold shirt + huge ass tie? I don't know, seems like a bit much, in my opinion.

    This looks great. Nice Filson.

    Today's weather didn't allow for any layering, unfortunately:

    Dude, your fits are the definition of boring. LK does his thing really really well.

    I didn't say that his fit was bad. I said that it was too much, in my opinion.

    unfortunately saying "in my opinion" doesn't absolve you from receiving criticism there's a world of difference between "looks good but i couldn't pull this off" and "oh, it's too much". the gold and blue work really well together. however, i'd argue that the colors within your shirt don't even work very well together

    Those of us in the north are freezing to death and would love weather that "isn't cold enough to accommodate more layering"

    I haven't seen windchills reach the double digits since Thursday....


    Well at least not positive double digits [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Oh, hahaha. I was thinking that was directed towards my fit. Yeah, it's about 70 down here. Funny, because I wish I was in the cold. I guess you always want what you can't have! :p

    You definitely like your casual fits as clean and simple as your suit fits [​IMG]
    That's the idea. [​IMG]

    Nice peacoat (something I want to have someday...). It's difficult to be certain with your hands in your pockets, but I think you're right about having it taken in a little.

    as per the thread further down the page, I am going to the store in a bunch of dirty, lived in designer shit. props to Prada_Ferragamo for hooking me up with an incredible KKA cardigan, which looks awesome all the time, but possibly not its best here.

    kwoyeu, to answer your question, the sizing of a jacket is primarily in how it fits around the chest and shoulders, not length. Foo's jacket there is a more conservative length than the most fashionable style right now, but that doesn't mean it's a size too long. Your jacket seems too big because it seems wide around the shoulders, wide at the collar, and wide at the waist (it also is too long in the sleeves but that can be fixed).

    if the jacket only comes in 36 and 38, and 36 is too tight in the chest and 38 is too roomy, you probably just shouldn't buy the jacket. Which is why I don't own one of those Epaulet sport coats.


    Sleeves are definitely too long, shoulders are a tad wide and waist could definitely be taken in a little. Length is okay - on the traditional rather than fashionable side but okay. If you get the sleeves sorted this might be okay over a thick sweater, but tbh it needs a skilled tailor to make it fit better. If you want to go the tailoring route Niidawg (mainly hangs out in MC) is one of the few people I've seen manage to get a jacket adjusted down really well.

    i *truly* appreciate the advice guys

    I can see now that the waist is indeed too wide - definitely going to do the waist suppression thing or whatever it is called (I tried simulating a suppressed waist myself and really liked how it looks compared to the unsuppressed look).

    I guess it's almost impossible to mess with the shoulders though. But I'm curious: are they obviously wider than they should be? (not a rhetorical question, just wanted to double check). One thing is that I have a rather large head which would perhaps be accentuated by narrower shoulders. Another thing: the one button on my jacket (unsurprisingly given it's boo) is almost falling off which perhaps had a loosening effect (though I'm not sure). I have some APC XS blazers which have much narrowers shoudlers - I liked how they look at first but later came to be bothered (justifiably or not) by how they kind of accentuated my giant ass head. I'm taking some pictures of me in both jackets, and also in another boo blazer also in size 38. I'm guessing the waist and chest look better on the apc? what about the shoulders though? Any comment (however brief) would be appreciate.[​IMG]
