    bears repeating, cause Costa Rica is way nicer to look at than the inside of an apartment regardless of how baller the fit.

    Cross pollinating from MC a bit -
    RRL cap, Persols, Etro wool, Johnstons scarf, Lee 1950's chore coat, Chimala buckle back chinos (hacked and rolled for some frayed sprezz) Alden chucks

    This would look better if you gave me the chore jacket.

    jokes aside, this is good... but the shape your aldens in makes me a little sad.

    As good as this, and all the fits from MC refugees can be... I miss the days when PG was the only MC poster with any real frequency.

    listi you need to shave and do something with your hair.

    I disagree. Facial hair is fuckin' hot right now. Ditto @ disheveled hair [​IMG]

    all kidding aside, I like the look..

    eason gotta agree with other people, that suit sorta sucks (at least on you)

    listi, I'll just say you need something that isn't skin tight on your legs, like some trousers... and a different pose

    Luftvier (and a lot of MC guys) looks very costume-y. Moreo then even a lot of goth ninja fits...
    I agree, but why do you think this is? Since the average MC age is older, perhaps they are less fearful of the possible ridicule associated with sporting the "wrong" look? I found it interesting how some of the MC guys said they thought SW&D was hyper critical. I have to admit, sometimes this forum feels like being back in high school again. Kop the wrong brands, wear jeans with the wrong wash, wrong cut, etc and you will be made fun of (sometimes mercilessly). Often this forum creates it's own reality that has little barring to the opinions of the outside world. There is a huge desire for many members to seek approval of the group since they spend such a large amount of their lives here. Yes, I feel somewhat contaminated by even visiting here and attempting to fit in. That's what's refreshing about the MC guys posting here-- a group of outsiders to shake things up.

    Another MC'er climbing over the fence...

    Thought I'd give it another try after last week's challenge outfit. Jeans and
    jacket are the same. This is basically what I wear every day: jeans/cotton
    trousers, shirt, sweater, jacket, and suede shoes, sometimes sneakers.

    The challenge outfit was my snow outfit"”hence the boots; I thought those
    were more SW'ish... I was wrong. I have no idea how monks are looked upon
    here, but I think they're great, from jeans to suit. (Forgive me for not using
    the right clothing terms; I don't know how to do SW&D language (if there is
    such a thing) and I'm not a native speaker.)

    Oh, and I read some of you don't like detail pictures"”I do.

    Okay, here goes:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Be gentle.


    Fit is good, there's no ideal SW&D to emulate so everyone's take on the same outfit can come out differently but successfully.

    In short, MC focuses more on what's "wrong with an outfit" while SW&D focuses more on what's "right with an outfit".

    +1, MC invasion works because they're outsiders but not like "what the fuck do you all know."

    I thought NOBD's fit was really good. It's not fashion-forward but it's not trying to be, and everything fits well.

    Top half and bottom half do not work together at all

    As long as everything else is fine. Right now the only real problem is the wash on those jeans, though.

    his jeans started as raw that's just how they've faded (it's what happens if you wash regularly, no high-contrast fading)

    +1, chill out, this ain't MC, we don't need to nitpick every tiny detail

    All saints is horribly under rated on SF. Even at full retail the boots are a good deal and the leathers are good on sale. jewelry is quite nice too.

    Agreed, although I refuse to buy unless the stuff is on sale.
