    Is Zonca's blazer too short or is it just me?

    zonca, that fit is awesome, especially if it's your first. Do want that blazer

    Mr Chorizo, they're APC's and they're sort of a sueded cotton. However, the previous owner took them in at the waist and hem (and maybe thigh), so they fit super slim.

    those jeans look a bit too tight-they look more like leggings than actual jeans-also i cant really see the shoes, but they seem to not go w. the rest of the fit.

    Really digging those floods. Curious how they look without your hands in the pockets.

    Nah, it's right on with the current trend. Button stance is a bit high for my liking, but it's a good fit overall

    Total noob here, so bear with me please. I have seen IIMJ's other posts in WAYWT, and while there are some helpful comments, I'm having a hard time understanding exactly what's wrong with what he's doing. I think we're going for a similar look--one step up from a basic jeans and t-shirt look, one that aeglus and others have done and received positive comments on--so I would like more information on what could be improved.

    I get the negative comments on the shoes/sandals and watch, but the jeans and shirts themselves also draw negative comments. How can jeans and a basic shirt both fit well and be "hideous" at the same time?

    Side note: What does CP stand for when people talk about CP shoes?

    ^

    Cp is Common Projects

    How can jeans fit well and still be hideous? Well, a Ferrari is beautiful but much less so when its Neon Pink with flames and shitty pinstriping. And that's not even getting into the merits of the quality of the mall brands.

    it's more with the brands he is wearing.

    CP = common projects, premium sneakers essentially

    Basic shirt + jeans is okay, but it doesn't need to be posted daily. This is a fashion forum, and there's nothing fashion about t-shirts+jeans. I mean, the tees being worn are not even "sf approved brands"

    Basically, anyone can post shirt+jean photos and say "look at me!"

    If you want to do that, you can go here

    edit: Two people beat me to the punch on the CPs. All the acronyms seem really obnoxious when you're new here.

    Some of IIMJ's jeans are just plain ugly - mostly the pre-distressing - and some of them do not, in fact, fit well. In some cases he could size down, and in others he just needs a slimmer leg opening if he's going to wear relatively sleek shoes/sneakers. Diesel, 7FAM, et al. often have wider straight-leg and boot cut models, and these tend to look awkward with smaller shoes and sloppy when stacked.

    Yeah, a combination of the cropped appearance, the high button stance with the bottom button open, and the hands in the pockets all throw the silhouette off for me.

    has nothing to do with the brand, bruh.

    his jeans are ill fitting and for the most part have pretty terrible distressing. most of his shoes are ugly as well, and wearing sandals anywhere except the beach or the pool is pretty much gross. no one wants to see your gross feet.

    I do think it's a little short... and it's a shame they made it a 3 button, (new season is 2 button, but no Chambray).

    I'll do a shot without hands in pockets at some point!!

    Would you suggest buttoning the bottom? This idea is something I'm not familiar with!

    Nah, but maybe tuck the shirt? Untucked shirt w/ blazer is usually not a great look, although in your case it's not egregious only because the shirt is so short as well.

    +1 Tucking in the shirt was my first thought as well.
