    Xenox's fit might be okay with shoes that didn't look terrible. Feels mishmashy to me.

    this should be the least of your problems
    Care to elaborate?

    i don't like the jacket in general
    Yeah you might be right. It was a compulsive thrift store buy so i'm not really losing out. Guess i just needed to hear it from someone else.

    ok, the jacket is ill fitting, not to mention the sleeves which need to be slimmer, then there is v neck tee/top, which looks like its choking you then there are the jeans which are fine above the knee but sloppy below am i i been gentle enough ? and lets not forget the sneakers, which are not to my liking, but then again, i dont really like sneakers to start with... but you can blame that on my age

    i really dont mind this fit, but.....

    i dont think the shoes do you any favours, as they tend to make you look shorter than you really are

    and for me the hairstyle is channeling the bad memories i had of spandau ballet

    If don't think i'd be able to move if the jacket sleeves were any slimmer. But yes, it's a shit jacket. Only cos a couple of big macs so no real loss. Hmmm i can sort of see what you mean about the tee choking me, but that's just in the pic. The jacket is pulling the back of the tee back so it pulls around the neck. Possible should have just worn chucks. Would have been less of the stacking below the knee cos they're slimmer, and probably more SF approved. The sneakers are part of my "Extremely comfortable and not attention-grabbing bad" collection. Yes, overall a very productive miss.

    noooooooooooooooooooooo

    a u neck tee or even a smiths tee combined with non indigo jeans, paired with some rugged boots,or if you must, some decent sneakers would work a lot better

    i'm never gonna wear a u neck t in my life. Did you mean crew neck?

    a smiths tee? they're a great band but i'm not their biggest fan in the world.

    i need some cool boots.

    took the words out of my mouth. Compared to your other fits I think this one isn't up to par of what you're capable of.

    LOL, new SF meme? nicelynice: Thanks for this, I normally have it up for this reason and didn't notice it was so low till you mentioned it, will fix. willy: Thanks, got them recently and already love them to bits, MMM don't mess around when it comes to sneakers, linked pic shows them better - link otter: Noted on the hair, my hair must grow pretty quick as not 3 weeks ago the sides/back were shaved almost bare with the sensible length top/fringe, that's the kind of 80's vibe I do not want to be channeling :p. Re: the sneakers, unfortunately everything makes you look short when you're 5'2. Not buying shoes with height is too much a restriction for me, even if it would make me look a bit taller I'm willing to sacrifice that - and I have to in order to wear for example shorts (all shorts make people look smaller). Kent Money: I've been trying so many aesthetics in the past and finally I've found something that I truly 100% enjoy wearing, so currently I'm starting small with simple everyday stuff and as time and money allows I will build on what I've got. I'll also say that this is the most WAYWT post I've made, in that it shows something I more regularly wear rather than something occasional that I put together and wore for a night out on the town.

    unfortunately, you are going to limited with your footwear choices, especially the color and style

    if want to give the illusion of longer legs i would suggest wearing footwear similar in color to the pants/jeans you are wearing...yeh, i know , that limiting


    and no tucking

    best light my Rockers have probably seen as far as photos go.

    Looks great. You are filling that laundry room with swagger.

    Great fit shoreman, is that an NdG sweater?

    Thanks. Yep.

    This is my first time posting in this thread. My friend took photos of me the other day for a project he was working on.

    Brixton Hat
    LL Bean Sweater
    Omega Watch
    Naked & Famous Denim
    Circa Shoes


    Tattoos and a serious stache go a long way in making the norwegian sweater look OK.

    Your 6'3 and you wear a M ?? Im the same height and a M would fit me like a children's shirt , I wear a L in uniqlo and the sleeves are just right

    It really depends, I don't care a whole lot about sleeve length because I almost always roll my sleeves so I can often wear a medium. Most of the time I'm a large in knits, hoodies, jackets etc. though. I think I might get some uniqlo shirts in large then, and have them tailored.

    disagree, it would have made you look like a triangle

    imo the bomber suits ppl with leaner bodies, as it makes guys with boxy silhouettes even more boxy


    I think the bomber style of jacket in general is the one that guys of bigger to big builds should go for actually - too big of a guy in a too small of a black (or any other color) leather biker jacket can suggest things you many not want to suggest.
    I think Kent dresses his body type well. He's not too big, but not a skinny lanky Asian dude, and I learned that he has a penchant for flight jackets as well, so all good in the hood. Kent is right when he says that dads across America have given the A2 a bad rep, but a good, fitted A2 (and Kent's is pretty fitted fwiw, those jackets look completely different zipped up) is really nice. People break their necks looking at mine everytime I wear it. [​IMG]

    Otter being banned repeatedly, coming back, wearing the same thing over and over and then giving advice is hilarity defined.
