    this was my plan for SVB cosplay

    I believe the proper response here would be "eat a dick"

    Everything seems fine to me. I don't find the tie to exciting though but ties generally suck. You'd probably do better with thinner ties as your own shape and prob the one of your collars calls for that.

    if you like big shoes get some sturdy budapesters from Vass or some other Mitteleuropean maker.


    Yeah I do normally stick to about a 7cm (2.75") width for my ties. This one is an exception.

    Re shoes I think I need to get some sleeker dark brown dress shoes; maybe I will spend some time in MC and figure out what those will be.

    The fit on this is great... might be interesting to try this kind of fit (baggier/more substantial) with casual clothes. This is the first fit I've seen you in where you don't look totally emaciated/waify (no swipe). Middle of the jacket could be a little slimmer, but I like it.... for whatever that is worth

    The problem with baggier/more substantial is that in actual practice, I end up looking like I am swimming in my clothes. The way I figure it, if slim-fit clothing isn't made for someone like me, then who is it for? I have the ability to wear it, so I will. Trying to hide my slimness with baggy clothing is what I did in high school and I looked ridiculous. Luckily it was the late 90s so everyone was doing it. [​IMG]

    yep.

    hmmm. jacket and shirt don't match. pants shouldn't be tucked to socks. writing/graphic on a shirt is a no-no. and gold casio watch I think is overplayed.

    This seems like the beginning of your dress logic, and probably where things all fall apart, tbh.

    With the SVB aesthetic, it will be very difficult to pull off a fuller, boxier look. His early 60's LA casual thing (or whatever it is) could easily turn into Golf Clubhouse nitwit slobwear meets middle management bis cash networking between flights at the Atlanta airport.

    If he wants to go a different route, he may have more options with volume, drape, that sort of thing. But I gather that he isn't into that.

    well I don't live in the same pit of darkness and despair that Lane lives in, that's for certain.
