    Everyone who wears larger sizes than me is obese, and everyone who wears smaller sizes than me is starving.

    Precisely.

    But yes, it is a bit boring.


    I don't get this "boring" criticism that's getting leveled at him. It's miles more interesting than the average lumberjack shirt/jeans/boots.

    ^ I don't get the comparison I don't like that look either.

    I've heard a similar thing about drivers. [​IMG]

    How do you figure it's more interesting than... well, anything? I mean you can easily do a lumberjackish fit boringly as well, but... confusing perspective.

    Everything in the fit is just a standard item that fits well.

    All you would need is just a patterned shirt to add more visual interest. That or go the opposite direction and be totally monochrome. Both are more visually 'interesting' than just blocks of color that fit well. As is, it's not bad, but it could use a bit more "spice"

    No plans to bulk up. Have neither time nor (moreover) inclination. Past efforts only ever yielded marginal results at best.

    Thought I might as well humiliate myself again after the MC does SW&D event. Crticism welcomed.
    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
    +1. I like this better than your contest entry, MoK. The jeans and cuffs are good. Agree with the guy who said the technical jacket is not right. You could get a similar vibe with one of those MA1 flight jackets. Re: the sleeve length on kunk's Jil Sander.. not showing cuff is a deliberate choice. Designer stuff is not supposed to follow the rules of classic tailoring, but bend them. Not that it couldn't look good with a 1/4 cuff, it just wouldn't have the same effect. This is different than a suit that's simply too big with sleeves that are too long.

    luftvier's fit is fine. It wouldn't get nearly as much attention here had he not been outspoken in the MC does SW&D (and vice-versa) contests.

    I'm glad to see more "cross-pollination" between boards, and the discussion has been pretty good too.

    It's probably going to be more in this board's direction though. Easier for the guy wearing a suit to find a reason to dress SW&D for the hell of it than the other way around.

    Why is it that when mellowfellow posts more or less the same thing he gets a lot of love here, yet luftvier is considered boring?

    Luft looks straight out of GQ/JCrew lookbook.

    Mellow has his own silhouette, has a couple of interesting knits, etc etc. It's not the same.
