    there's a line in front of the fire. he's waiting for you to finish burning your new suit.

    i don't get it. you spend countless hours talking/critiquing/buying style and then go to the trouble and expense of getting a mtm suit only to get that abortion as a result.

    Yeah it's a shame that suit didn't turn out well, at least the DB suit before it came out fine. Maybe next time I'll buy something OTR and have it tailored as a template.

    I apologise in advance because this will inevitably sound patronising, but it's probably fair enough since you are trying to be sarcastic - calling someone 'doctrinaire' does not mean that the person concerned is trying to 'indoctrinate' someone (that would indeed be silly), although the two words come from the same roots. It means that person has an inflexible attitude.

    I realize that, I was mirroring what you did by taking what you said and pushing it to the nth degree to make my point. Essentially trying to invalidate your point by making the same one in the context of a rebuttal that also mirrored yours :facepalm:

    Shirt is ugly, cardigan is ugly, tie is wide for jeans. Tie doesn't belong with the massive cuffs, shirt doesn't go with the tie, cardigan doesn't go with anything. Jeans and boots are fine together. Teger is right, as well - that flat cap ought to be reserved for Man of Kent.

    Unfortunately, these are indisputable medical facts, much in the same way that it is universally accepted that AC/DC's "For Those About to Rock" is one of the greatest songs of all time. If you traded out the shirt for an oxford and the cardigan for a tweed or rumpled wool coat, you'd probably look a lot better, more like a Japanophile (Asianphile? Asiatophile? Pedophile?) professor, and less like someone who is probably colorblind. Think about these things, and ask yourself if those who are about to rock would salute you. The answer, in this case, is no.

    Here's the thing... you need to learn conventions before you can break them. A fit that's just built around "things you're not supposed to [do]" looks ridiculous. Clothing is communication. Nobody knows what they are looking at... there's no way the eye is led through the fit. Apparently the color is completely off in the pics, which doesn't help. Putting together an outfit isn't like dressing for "opposite day," you and your attitude have to match your clothes. Otherwise you fail in "pulling it off."
    Yes, this is the other problem :embar:

    Ugh. Sometimes I come to SF to get AWAY from academia. I like to keep my lecture voice and everything that goes with it in my leture halls. You should try it, FLyingMonkey; you might enjoy it. You are here for critiques, are you not? I would suggest that you open your mind and ears, and stop defending your fits. Just listen! You are the student here, not the professor. FWIW, I think you should donate the shirt. It really is a horrible color combination. Perhaps you should be working on your basics and then start playing with colors etc. once you have a solid boring base upon which to build, no?

    Edit: Maybe find someone you know or someone on SW&D/MC to mimic. That way, you have a clear, defined goal to work toward as well as a model you can follow.

    Ya see, that's what I am talking about. Class, good advice, cheeky without being cruel, and coming from someone whose fits are usually both interesting and do your body shape justice.

    Perhaps it's time for something more pedestrian...
