    sorry it doesn't fit like a sack and you're supposed to button both on jil sander suits and you aren't supposed to see cuff

    WTF? For irony? Is this done in the way hipsters dress like ugly nerds in order to be cool?

    Thought I might as well humiliate myself again after the MC does SW&D event. Bear in mind I'm middle-aged and live in a small market town that hasn't been hip since the middle ages...

    I like that more than your submission for the contest--not sure I like the scarf or the jacket, especially given the similarity of color to the jeans but everything seems to suit you and it's a nice photo. The bottom half is nice

    Please don't wear technical jackets casually in that kind of fit. It's the outerwear equivalent of wearing running shoes around. They work in a more streetwear oriented fit but that's clearly not what you're going for. Check out artoftime and Kaplan for much better MC does SW&D worthy jackets.

    i dont know if i would like the look of a 30L listi. that coat is already very slim on you and i feel you'd lose a lot of functionality (i.e the ability to layer) if you went one size down, or it would look like a sausage (which would be QUITE an accomplishment for any piece of clothing on you....)

    Listi, don't go smaller on the coat. Go longer for sure though.

    If the jacket were to be retained, I think he could not wear the scarf and wear either no hat or a different hat. And the shoes could be more casual.

    It's not as slim as it looks. Although it's true that I'd lose layering ability, which is sorta important. Meh, we'll see. I wasn't planning on sizing down until next season.

    I usually like your fits, but this one is shit. You look like the worst of the ultra-affected Wicker Park hipsters circa. 2007.

    Sterlingwear, 32R is about a 36-37&quot; chest though, so 30 would be 34-35&quot;

    Really like seeing MC heavyweights on here.

    I agree this submission is better than what you put forward for the last Friday challenge. Jacket could be better, and in a more interesting color, but everything else is nice.

    Really looking forward to seeing you and niidawg on here more. Esp since you guys already kill it in MC.
