    Don't feel so bad. Those W+H color block hoodies rarely look good on anyone, including skinny guys. I keep remembering some of snake's early fit pics here involving one of those things-- just awful! At least he had the sense to get rid of it quickly and move on to better stuff. Another thought is how the color block design feels rather kindergarten-like. When this theme is contrasted against your larger size it makes me think I'm seeing the worlds largest 5 year old.

    Much better dude, you write like you don't know much about clothes or what looks good... did you have advice from anyone else on the fit of the shirt?

    It's vast improvement on the polo, which didn't compliment your shape at all.


    Well, yes and no on the advice question. I was reading an article about tailoring, so I made a mental note that the neck and the shoulders are the most important part. I found the shirt on sale and while the neck and shoulders fit, it was HUGE in the stomach area(as most off the rack stuff is), so I took it to a tailor and got it slimmed down.

    Glad to see I'm making progress. Thanks guys!

    if you were to scan the striped section of that W+H hoodie using a UPC reader, I think the register would display "FAIL"

    I'd be curious to hear if others have any ideas how to incrementally modify this fit in order to add more steeze and less of the dreaded business casual look?

    IMO, different shirt, maybe something with a pattern; a much more casual belt, like a rope or ribbon; a different shade of trousers with a more trim cut. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'm not a huge fan. I'm sure they can work alright for slim guys, but on Moo... well... *insert cow joke here*

    I'm not really sure what you mean by more trim cut. Do you happen to have a picture of something for comparison?

    a lot of new people posting today, I guess I'll give it a shot. I hope they didn't set the standard too high for new people [​IMG]

    DaveD: start over.

    Uncontrol, good looking out; thanks. I would love to hear more about specific issues since starting over using only the same knowledge as when I dressed myself the first time and nothing added since isn't likely to end in superior results.

    hey, it's no small feat to have your clothing so accurately express your personality like that

    I would strongly suggest you take a look at how Uncontrol dresses before you follow his advice.

    First time posting here -- recent pay increases combined with a sudden girlfriend decrease have made me much more image conscious, and you guys are my only hope at refinement. About to hit a poolside "creatives" meeting: [​IMG]

    Someone needs to breathe some life back into WAYWT.

    But FWIW, those W+H tiger fleece hoodies aren't that terrible; it's just that the color block ones look wonky on most people, myself included. The solid colored ones are alright for lounging around in.
