    Man, I'm getting pretty sick of this porch and of this stupid plant. Whenever I try to take pictures anywhere else, they end up sucking. These pants are irresponsibly tight. Also, I've worn this jacket like every day this week. It is definitely getting tossed in the duffle a couple weeks from now. [​IMG]

    ^they look great, what are they? love the colors and proportions here.

    jwied, I dunno could see you pulling off anything actually but you seem like the kinda guy who wants to really take his time figuring stuff out and maybe not shell out so much cash. so could take a while.

    maybe the most natural extension would be a slightly techy pseudo ro type look, maybe consider some slightly less fitted pants, possible some of those funky cargoes that are trendy right now + tanks and maybe some more interesting knitwear.

    Dunno, I could see you doing 100% marg or julius or ervell or something like a synthese where he combines a lot of that shit together although it'd take a while to get it to a place like that.

    you could keep the slim clean silihouette and just look toward jil/schneider/ervell/some dries etc. the difference would be just finding some slightly more visually interesting statement stuff to add in, maybe going slightly more luxe with your fabrics. on the other hand if you're not irrevocably dedicated to clean and skinny, you should definitely try and make your way to a store where you can try some more relaxed or anti-fit stuff on, you have a good understanding of proportion and a good bodytype, so you've got options, getting the weird stuff right isn't actually hard it's just a matter of finding stuff (that fits right) and combining in a coherent way.

    Hi, first post here. Still figuring out this fashion thingy so criticism will be appreciated. I'm thinking about hemming the shirt about 1 inch, what do you think?

    it's actually a short sleeve shirt. Those bulges bug me too. edit: oh you mean the cardigan sleeve. I think the bulges were caused by the shirt's sleeves.

    Ranger I like the jeans, but they do need a hem. They look at least double cuffed which makes it lose it's form plus they're still stacking.

    Danzig, the length of the shirt is fine. You hem an inch it'll be too small. Burn the shoes.

    Snake, nice fit all around
    as synth said about the shoes, but the color pallete is great.

    after reading your earlier post i was thinking about it for a bit and KVA came to mind. Would also like to wear neil barrett. RO too (a leather, if nothing else).
    But really for me im sure it would be a matter of mixing different things ala synth.
    Also, i had been thinking about the cargos idea, and i do plan on wearing some tanks this summer (would like to pick up a silent tank, but thats pretty simple/basic).
    I like Julius... i dont think i could pull off a head to toe julius look, but for sure could incorporate some pieces.

    Also, i really have nowhere around me to go and try different shit on. would have to drive 4 hours to chicago. about a year and i half ago i went to Chicago to see Fever Ray (maybe the best show ive ever seen) and went to a few places, tried on some RO at barneys (wish i could have got the brown stooges jacket).. ended up buying was some RRLs :/

    jwied honestly I think you look good doing what you do now. No reason to change unless you're feeling bored.

    jwied would look good in a nice leather, some of the more minimalist toj styles would work well, imo. lifestyle pic, lol [​IMG] notice the hand slapping me in the face as the picture is being taken...

    Okay....both of these fits got good marks and I understand that they would be for different occassions....but with that said.....how are they even on the same planet? I am sure there is a great explanation, but I am not seeing it.

    I know I'm not the only person who was a little freaked out by the rope dangling off to the right in that picture like a noose.

    I really wanted to post 'don't do it man' as a response.

    Your collar isn't buttoned-down. Not sure if intentional.

    what are you getting at? are you saying one (i would assume mf's...) is more sophisticated or difficult to pull off than the other? first of all, this is an apples to oranges situation, second of all I don't think anyone tried to make a comparison between these two until you did just now? last, I guess just remember that this style stuff is largely subjective, in reality dressing well isn't hard, one might argue that mellowfellow is perhaps more precise/consistent with the fit and proportions of his outfits but so what? does that make it however much better you perceive it to be than snowman's? maybe, but that's your take, and here's a funny thing: most of mf's stuff comes from uniqlo, he does some minimal tailoring from what I understand but basically the stuff fits him perfect off the rack. so is it about the effort? the composition of the outfit itself? complexity? daring? what really makes an outfit superlative, how do we compare two outfits with distinctly different organizations?

    lol aderoll
