    ^ really like slacktide's latest one. what are the pants?
    [​IMG]
    re: uncontrol's outfit, i think the boots are a little clunky for your style. okay for the gyaru-oh look, but too rugged to be able to nail that vampiric ホスト look that you seem to be striving for. The details are nice, but maybe something that's more polished with a pointier toe? like the fuga boots。

    regarding the jeans, i'm not feeling it either. maybe because it looks a little too artificial? not sure if you use it to change the look to be a little more aggressive, as an intermediate interpretation of the two styles. liked it better when it looked like this, but that could just be me being conservative.

    and the bag, whenever i see it i think it makes you look way too top heavy

    thanks for the feedback unicorn (lol) for the bag making me look top heavy ... well, it's a fairly large bag, that i tend to carry things in. i don't know how to avoid it looking heavy other than not wearing a bag at all. non-bag pic:

    I love those Fuga boots but the largest size is 26.5-27cm [​IMG] They are chunky, this look is a bit more "gyaru-o" than I'm used to but I'm trying to branch out a bit more from the typical darker stuff I'm used to. Thanks for the comments.

    dont understand what ppl are bitching about.

    i like the outfit (glad you ditched the glasses), but i honestly dont think the boots work. really like everything else. a more minimal bag might look better. the one with the bag looked a little too garish (too many things going on).

    i think you aesthetic could look better if something were toned down a little bit

    it would look better toned down a bit, but i don't think uncontrol wants that. that specific style of japanese casual wear is supposed to be edgy and... gaudy isn't the right word, but...just not boring. flashy, more like. its just really hard finding a balance of being cool and overdoing it, since he's trying to find a happy medium between a younger and older style of dress.

    beingbot, I think the ep chino's taped seam detail looks better if you get a smaller flash of it--make the cuffs smaller.

    Nice shirts, second pair of shoes don't work at all with the pants.

    This is the second comment I've gotten about the pants/shoes combo. The pants are basic khaki chinos, and the shoes are fairly mid-brown loafers, so I thought they would pair naturally. What do you think would work better?

    Spent a few days back in MC so I'm questioning my judgement [​IMG] Honest opinions please. Too youthful for my age? :

    sorry late posting, i realy like this MoK - good stuff. although i think either the shirt or or the boots, maybe not both. top pic looks really good, bottom a bit too much. maybe if the shoes weren't new. jacket is cool.
