    Thanks, guys. Added details.


    I actually got it cut last night (picture is from earlier)...still the same basic idea, just a little less crazy out-of-control/always in my face.

    @mer6 - I think you could improve a couple of things just by changing your camera setup. Get away from the chair and blinds - it looks like you're in a waiting room at a dentist's office - set the camera up outdoors, stand farther away from it, and change the angle so the camera is closer to chest height. Shooting from such a low angle is making you look more bottom-heavy than you probably are.

    There's kind of a disconnect between the hair and glasses (and, to a lesser extent, face) and the jacket and shirt. Your appearance seems a little more conducive to an Americana-ish vibe, which can be achieved with Visvim but not so much with RO and DRKSHDW.

    There's a disconnect between the top and bottom halves, and the wide leg opening on the pants combined with the relatively narrow sneaker profile looks a little off as well. A narrower hem or chunkier shoes/boots would look better. The jacket is also creating a bottom-heavy look with the upside-down V it creates. This can be an interesting look and work pretty well in some situations, but here not so much.

    i think if you've gotta wear long johns underneath that fit you gotta change your fit.. looks more like a SS fit. would look a lot better with a short sleeved crew neck tee. the drkshw long tee is very out of sync. u could also swap the brown trousers out for some faded denim.. would probably look better.

    Well shit, okay then.

    I don't have great warm stuff for this year yet, but I'll take that other stuff into advisement. The longjohns are fortunately very thin, they're merino, so it's not adding bulk, but the warmth is comforting and necessary when it's frosting out. Trying to work in warm layers instead of buying a new coat right now since it's not 0-10 yet.

    holy cannoli! thanks for the thumbs yesterday, guys!

    also, the arm and kg got the exact same number of likes on their fits. last i checked anyways. this makes me wonder,

    1. were they the exact same 83 people?

    2. does that mean that 83 people read this thread yesterday?

    2a. if yes, fantastic!

    2b. if no, who the eff did not like those 2 fits? :mad:

    ----

    and big plus one on NWIs camera advice. optimal camera angle and lighting will change a fit by miles.

    i realize that i have posted a fit M-F this week, and that save one they are MC type fits, and that that is very much not the norm here.

    my apologies to anyone who i have bothered/annoyed.

    here's my input:
    what exactly is your inspiration for that fit?
    jacket length in proportion to the shirt is a bit too direct.
    a shirt that would be a little shorter and not so straight-line would be fitting.

    pant cut + the length of your shirt really accentuates your hip area.
    it's like you're wearing a shirt that's just way too big for you. (and not in a good way as it can be done)
    as for the shoes, that's what really confuses me about what kind of style you're going for.
    this fit specifically could actually be fixed up with boots or dark non-sneaker shoes.

    Excellent beard to trouser matching.

    Minor nit would be that the tie is summer and the trousers are winter.

    thanks, moo.

    funny you should bring that up as i was talking to emptym about that the other day. that was my initial thought too, but his thought was that because shantung is so textured and rough, it could just as well work for F/W, i think i agree. either way, i decided to give it a whirl.

    some really excellent stuff the past few days, guys.

    notwithit-- i think that blazer's at least one full size too small for you. also, have you tried non-cropped blazers? you've got the height/physique for it.

    institches-- i like the tie with that fit, both color- and texture-wise.

    the wear on the shoes is excellent too. The cardigan looks almost too shiny / new compared to the rest, but i still like it a lot

    I'm not sure I could pull off the cardigan-over-cardigan look. I'd get confused and start inserting the buttons of one cardigan into the other's buttonholes and then I'd have to call a friend to help me take them off. It would be embarrassing for everyone.
