    Eh, I don't think it looks too bad actually.. I think some of the reason why it may look off is just a part of sf rarely seeing tucks done here. When they usually are done they tend to look far worse than yours. You can try to loosen the laces a tiny bit but I definitely prefer your semi-relaxed/straight leg shape than, y'know, grossly tight pants tucked into backzips

    Alright, better version. [​IMG] Alt A. MxMJ Chucks Seriously though, photos can't capture how these shirts were made for my odd proportions, especially post-wash. They're not too tight in the chest/soulders but manage not to look like tents or be wayyy too long.

    There's an odd perspective thing going on with my legs, not sure why. Could that be it?

    maybe, I think it'd be worthwhile to try a size up. Could be something to do with the tightness of the shirt relative to the tightness of your jeans. The shirt is pretty fitted all around, and maybe it's just personal preference but I think it would look better larger, would drape instead of clinging all over.

    It looks fine. Don't worry about it too much.

    I blame all of your bizarre proportions on a messed up camera angle and your insistence on wearing cons. The one pick you took in a parking lot, in the sun, was light-years better. Everything just looks dark to me

    also you got crazy knee bags son

    size down

    ^^ sizing down tends to exaggerate knee bags and I actually thought the one in the sun looked too hulked out to be natural.

    It's a good fit. In two hours, anything tight will be stretched out. People forget this shit about tshirts all the time. The couple alt.app tshirts I had always felt too sheer and bugged the shit outta me, but that one looks solid enough.

    I'll echo everyone else, it looks off. Right now it's way too much of a superhero look. Try a longer shirt so it pokes out from beneath the jacket. Those boots may have too low of a shaft to tuck also though I'm sure it's possible to figure out a way to work it.

    Yeah i was thinking of trying a longer t. To be honest i was kinda going for a superhero look. i'll keep messing around with it a bit, maybe try some different jeans, we'll see what happens.

    i didn't think it was straight out bad either. needs some work. The tuck will be something i'll try every now and again until i figure out what works. it's hard to pinpoint rules really.

    Alright, better version.

    That fit is fine. anyone complaining about that should post the same fit and see if they can get any tee or jeans to fit that well in a single pic.

    huh, I've had the opposite experience. Don't know why. Maybe it's because his are more slim/straight than tapered/skinny? The jeans with the worst knee bags I've ever had were new standards, nothing else (including 2 pairs of petit standards, nom de guerre and helmut lang raws) has ever been even really that noticeable [​IMG]
