I’m enjoying the more laid back vibe that’s settled over this thread like a fine mist these past few years. I like that a mild, possibly facetious comment is cause for concern. When I joined, people were vicious. We lost many to anger, more to hurt feelings, and most were torn to shreds in the crosswind. Those who persevered emerged from the cauldron a better dresser, though at some personal cost. There was no yelling at clouds — we were the clouds.

My first post on Sf 10 years ago I was showing off these new monkstraps I was excited about, but they had these huge buckles. There were two pages of leprechaun pictures. SF used to be brutal, mostly just pointless meanness, but I can think of a few times I got slammed and in the end I was more self aware for having heard some tough criticism.

I usually love the subtle comfort of your fits, but my very small criticism of this one is that the stark black of the bottom half seems bit too much of a contrast with warm tones of the top half. But you know, small things...
Thanks for the feedback, I know what you mean. Some lighter footwear would have broken it up a little better.

My first atttempt at a fit pic here, the really nasty responses, and my attempt to laugh it off, were all so embarrassing they ended up on the shortlived 'Fuck Yeah, Styleforum' site...

...and yet, for some reason, I am still here.

Thank you! And of course, critique away!
As I already said, I like the pieces individually. As an overall silhouette, however, you have a sort of reverse triangle silhouette going on. That might be personal preference, but because you've got the fairly wide trousers paired with quite a slim fitting top half, the outfit has the appearance of narrowing towards the top. In general, I'd lean towards a slightly wider fitting top half with slightly narrower trousers (or tapered trousers) for a more 'classic' silhouette. Huge fan of wide trousers, but they tend to look best with a heavier upper half for balance-sake
