I’m normally a big fan of your fits,
@penanceroyaltea, but maybe I’m missing something here. What’s the vibe you’re shooting for? I’m familiar with the old Armani-inspired baggy luxe tailoring vibe of certain Japanese and Korean brands if that’s what it is. And I really like the idea of those shoes and that bag with that type of fit. But I struggle to see the appeal of how that particular jacket, shirt, or pants fit on your frame.

But hey, how can I fault you for dressing like what looks to me like a shlubby 90s dad when I in no way deny that I dress like an immigrant granny 75% of the time?

Right on all counts man.
It would really work better on someone like you, but I really dig those vibes so I’m trying!!!

@penanceroyaltea - A lotta the guys in 90s Armani were pretty muscular and broad shouldered, like you, not super thin.

I think one big improvement would be somehow raising the line where your pants and shirt meet—higher rise pants, wearing your pants higher, or wearing a shirt that doesn’t totally cover your belt line (see 90s Armani ads for this).

I’m not really tall enough for high rise I think. I think it’ll make me look like spongbob..
