Almost looks like an SQ4U (?) pose and apartment combo.
SQ4U? Whats that?
@ James Timothy
Nice to hear at least someone else likes my jacket.
The leather is insane. Too bad I can't capture that on a picture.
I shall answer this for--that is another member here, and one that really drove me up the wall.
It presented the image that it had Kanye West style going, that it lived in an avant-garde-style furnished loft...it often posed in front of some early 2000s black Boxster (the base model, the ones for the US export market)...
Something about its extreme pretentiousness triggered something in me to out-do it, everytime...and despite its laughable midget stature, or maybe because, I always wanted to swat it with a rolled-up newspaper...
Well then I won't take it as a compliment.
I'm not here to drive anyone up the wall.
It looks better, but still a tad short for me. I don't mind visible T-shirts under western shirts, but I think a plainer shirt would work better with the jacket's detailing - maybe a chambray. I'd also be tempted to add a small cuff to the jeans to show a touch more boot. All in all though, not a bad fit.
The jeans are a week old pair of unsanforized sugar canes. In the end, after a few washed they will show more boot. Im just nog a big fan of cuffs, sorry. Will have them hemmed after a wash or two though.
Cold, grey and murky down by the creek:
MoK - are the jeans Levi's Red tab or Vintage? Do you consider Levi's good value?
I've been wondering about their quality for a while. Probably gonna cop some now that I know it's acceptable.
Do you have any experience with their trousers? I'm looking at some of their wool pants and according to the size chart I should go down a size or two.
well, i like the jacket (given stance is causing the low shoulder) and the sneakers, and im all for a minimalist look if executed well.
the grey jumper seems dull, i agree with shah a contrasting top would be better. the fit on the trousers from the knee down just looks sloppy to me. especially with a simple fit, details like these count.
also need to know this.
He dressed well and had a cool apartment. Your photos (pose and furniture) just reminded me of his. He was a bit of a cock tbf...but I wasn't suggesting that about you. Unless you suddenly develop a penchant for posting sales receipts.
Just read though the COS thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/271231/lets-discuss-cos-collection-of-style/45
There's some hints that they fit TTS and some that you should size up one. I'm going TTS and hope for little bit of stretching if they're on the small side.
