    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.

    Conditional like, shade and color of sneaks seem out of touch. Maybe if it was a darker green between olive and forrest and not suede?

    Met with my sisters friend last night who is a seamstress.

    Supposedly she works on fashion shoot's/shows and is more than happy to hem all my shit.

    Long overdue but denim, shirts, the lot will be done.

    Make sure that slimness of the shirts matches the pants. Right now the pants seem way too slim for the top.

    I agree.

    I didn't want to wear denim and I don't have any regular/straight leg chinos.

    Are you raising your shoulders to make your shirt seem shorter?

    Not at all. The only thing I am trying to do different is take the picture from a lower angle to stop my legs looking 2ft long as MOK suggested the other day.

    To be honest, I am at a bit of a loss as to the best direction to take with the tailoring.

    I'm not a tall guy, nor am I short - I am about 5'8. I'm a 32"-33" waist and really broad in the chest/shoulders. I cannot remember the numbers exactly, but my chest is about 100cm or more. I've tried shirts in size M and they're either too slim, or most of the time, too tight across the back/chest. To the point where I struggle to touch my elbows together if that makes sense. However they fit in the shirt length and sleeves. As I sit down at a desk most of the day, tightness across the body can be uncomfortable so I try to avoid that and end up buying size L shirts. And as we all know, they are too long in both the shirt and the sleeve for me.


    Further to this, i'd love to be able to layer as it's plainly obvious how it transforms a fit. And I would say in many ways hides some of the issues. The reality is that I live in a warm climate and it's not always possible. I actually had dinner with my sister who just arrived home from living in London for 4 years and she was saying that she doesn't know how to dress for Australia anymore. She'd become so used to layering and the styling benefits that come from it that she was going to have to get used to simply chucking on a little top and skirt again.

    Start by hemming everything that needs to be, jeans, shirts etc. Some of the shirts you have would also be benefited by shortening sleeves. You'll need to decide which shirts you will wear tuck/untucked only. A 7" drop isn't crazy abnormal, have a think about the shapes of your shirts and whether some neednslimming or not. Take note of the WAYWN posters that have a similar build. Layering is hard to do in Aus mate, wait until our "winter". I just try to stay cool in summer, lots of linen and lightweight cottons.

    Appreciate it Naka.

    I'll certainly consider every shirt differently and not simply chop according to one particular shirt I like. Sleeves will be the easy part i'd say. Shortening the shirt will be much harder on some of my Acne shirts which have a box pleat as they cant simply be darted I don't believe. If they are to be slimmer, it'll need to be up the sides.

    I'm not offended, I don't really care all that much (before you jump in with why are you posting here then). I don't post to inspire people, I post out of interest to see if there's any noteworthy comments about the fit so I can learn. When I joined I stripped my wardrobe way back and focused on basic color combos and general fit and it hasn't actually evolved much from there. The first pic is mostly stuff I'm planning to toss anyway and the second I thought was ok, nothing inspirational but seemed pretty fine. I'll work in some more interesting stuff in future but my stuff's generally pretty basic. I also mostly looked at MC when I joined and around the '06/'07 timing, this forum SW&D was much more about americana than ninjagothapocolypse.

    I'm the same height as you and don't have an issue with shirts fitting that long, but as you mentioned you're broad shoulders and bigger chest aren't helping as you need size small body/sleeve lengths, with size medium/large shoulder/chest. I would try tucking in your shirts for starters. How many other OTR shirting brands have you experimented with? The brands you've been posting are going to end up costing you additional coin for tailoring since it seems you need everything hemmed tops and bottoms.
