    Miran, taking fit advice from you is liking taking fit advice from Ray Charles. I've said it before, but I am sure you were too busy with a large bowl of ice cream or something to take note, but I do not take fit advice from faceless internet personalities. For all I know you've never put a suit and tie on in your entire life, and are color blind. You may not even know what proper clothing looks like. It is impossible for me to take your seriously. You join the many in the fora who post while never having posted a fit themselves. It's pathetic and quite strange.

    I do heed the advice of people whom I respect on the forum, those who have shown me that they can do a bang up job of getting dressed in the morning. I am working my way toward that. Your faceless, cowardly posts don't do anything for me, bud. Post a fit, then we can chat.

    thanks for the comments. i haven't shaved for a month or more now, just trimming with a razor (sensitive skin)
    i am curious though how do i look older? i am the youngest one in my office actually and everyone calls me young boy
    i have a very conservative hairdo :eek:

    that brown/tan/beige along with black/dark gray color palette always fascinates me...sort of like those YSL leopard print loafers.
    My skill set is not yet high enough I guess to understand different shades to mix and match appropriately. I should visit the MC color coding thread and really give it a good read.

    and Milano, i think a hint of white as in a shirt underneath, or even switched in place of the sweater would have been better simpler

    thanks! (back to the drawing boards)

    edit:
    and about wearing shirts. more and more i feel a simple button down is essential to my personal wardrobe. i just look and feel a bit out of my element wearing a sweater whether it be vneck or crew cut. tee's i find is a totally different from wearing a sweater as a standalone because it is much less formal in my POV thus not garnering the "need" for a button down or shirt.

    ex. wearing a shirt tucked or untucked feels much more in my comfort zone than wearing a sweater. my neck feels naked without a collar

    No idea what competition you are referring to. I think people read into my posts a bit much. Lighten up.

    The pants, while not perfect, are serviceable and are not as bad when outside of the static environment of one photo.

    hey thats okay, your pic is small/not great quality and from here it kinda looked like some weird soul patch/goatee shit. :uhoh:

    as for looking older its mostly the hair and awkward shadow of facial hair + the knit heavy fit = makes you look like a 30s-40s dad. although on second look not so much. dunno. for the record, i don't care what mc has told you or where you work, you can get a nice hair cut that doesnt make you look ten years old or like a dad or a lesbian and no one in your office will freak out. hard to get a sense of your jawline/chin but you seem to have a long neck and head and nice relatively fine wavy hair so you should have a good number of options for styling. Maybe let it grow out a bit first.

    as for feeling weird without a collar i dunno man thats pretty weird, most dudes feel most comfortable in a tee. try getting yourself used to a more relaxed fit with your clothes in general, particularly your knitwear and this may help you feel more comfortable. a lot of forum dudes just go for slim slim because they're so focused on fit but most of the time it looks way worse than if they just went with slightly relaxed or a bit more loose. sausage casing vibe = no bueno. there is really an elegance to a nice relaxed fit, see if you can find that for yourself.

    EDIT - in general people, you benefit from not blurring out/chopping off etc a large portion of your face/head. when you do this you destroy the natural lines of your face/head and therefore the shape of your body as a whole and you come out looking weird as fuck. i know were not all cool with postin our naked visages on the interwebz but try and keep your chin and or jaw line and the top of your head if you must. i alwas like nils just blurred eyes or mouth technique.

    So, I'd like to hear from people I respect for their ability to dress well (take that as an open invitation to post). Are my pants from today's outfit totally horrendous, or are they OK, a bit baggy, but serviceable?

    long neck/face + loose knit is very bad. just further exaggerates the proportions in a bad way

    a button down with a collar balances out the neckline from my POV.

    drew can speak on this as he has mentioned several times regarding certain cuts of leather jackets he wears versus others in regards to the neckline

    turtleneck is my next best friend ha! been keeping an eye on a turtleneck, 1 size larger than I would wear, but not sure if I would spend the $$$ to experiment with the over sized siluoette reminiscent of how some women style it up with the loose knit I'm thinking of off the top of my head, or it might be a loose knit scarf...

    :eh:
