    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm wearing a hoodie there. It's a size M and fits me well even though I'm an S.


    As Bam said the jackets fit slim. Though I wouldn't recommend sizing up.

    Bro I really like what you do with proportions. Pretty sweet

    Only one nitpick-- the pants would look better draped over the tongue than tucked.

    the SW&D and goth aesthetic definitely works.

    I wonder if the tech/sportwear can mingle as well

    That's pretty cool. Is that a VA hoodie you're wearing?

    Certainly better than some of your other fits.
    I think it would look better if everything was a bit longer. Sleeves are too short and some stacks on the jeans with a bit of sagging would look good with a longer body on the tee.
    You're fit, so you probably look good in relaxed fitting, slouchy stuff. You've seen Charly's post, right?

    Parker, that is sweeet. I had that CS jacket in my dreambox for a while but never jumped on it. Cool to see it in action. And I dig the shoes-- they look like supergas?

    Thanks for the advice conceptionist. I think that slouchy is the way to go, form fitting seems to just come across as garish :(

    I've been seeing a lot of stuff in the YY forum that I really like and I think would be a good move. Just looking for the pieces to invest in.


    And agreed the t-shirt is too short. I usually pull it up on purpose so I have never noticed till that pic.

    haha, yeah, the shoes are kinda funky, but I like 'em. the shape is similar to chuck without the toe cap.. the perforation and soft footbed are comfy in the warm weather.

    coming soon jackets are pretty neat. this one has patch pocket notch lapel on one side, flap pocket peak lapel on the other. kooky.


    edit for golden tribe: the laces are rounded and waxed.

    The top is my favorite part of your fit. It's hardly short at all-- I'd pin the appearance of shortness more on the camera angle than anything else.

    You could still benefit from standing in front of a plainer/less obtrusive space. Then it would be easier to figure out what's going on!

    Yeah, the BH fit is tricky for me, since it's so far from the aesthetics I'm used to that I lack any sort of lens to evaluate it

    Best part by far is the jeans. They fit great.

    But the rest-- it's just, i don't know. The shirt is thoroughly dad, but whether it's dad in an earnest "uncool" sense or a meta fashion-boy post-ironic "updated classic with a modern twist" sense-- I just can't tell. It's like the intent isn't obvious, which some would praise as "authenticity," but it leaves me confused.

    Vest could go either way. Right now it's pushing you further into dad territory. Like, let's go fishing and such. But wear a different shirt, and you could recontextualize the vest entirely, make it cool for lack of a better word.

    So, try a shirt with a more structured/tidy collar for one. Like an OCBD. And the shirt needs to have more harmony in the pattern and buttons, so it seems like you chose the colors intentionally. There's promise here, I can feel it!

    This rambling brought to you by bourbon and rye and a thoroughly confusing fit.
