    I think it looks great. I do think you could wear one of the buckhorn trousers and derbies or loafers and it would also be an excellent and more schneider look. It would not be the better look by any means, but would look very cool too :)

    I don't either, but I get the idea that you'd need to write a short essay on why you feel it's appropriate to incorporate both of those brands into a single fit taking into consideration the design ethos of each designer and how they complement each other.

    I'll be honest, Stitchy, when you first started posting over here I was very concerned that it would just be another place for your CM fits. You have proven me wrong and really striven to put together some excellent SWD fits. My (metaphorical) hat is off to you!

    Late pass, but I always say rock the scars. On the advice of my hairdresser, I recently switched the side I part my hair on. The upside is that this takes a nasty cowlick out of the equation when I'm trying to get my hair to lie flat; the downside is that I'm no longer covering a bunch of scarring on my forehead and around my eye. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person that's noticed.


    I believe the phrase is "can't rep, must spread".


    Hold the phone - are you saying that there are heattech shirts with an open neckline? Or are they just regular strangley crew-necks that you're wearing sized up?

    My only suggestion would be to add a commando sole (or double leather) to those boots. They're a little slick looking for a more chunky outfit.

    I bet everyone in CM will ignore that Stitchpic if he cross posts and pretend it doesn't exist.

    That's a big negative! I saw it in the NMWA thread and came over here to "thumb" it....like I always do. Put that in your faded denim pipe and smoke it, bud!

    @ghostface you've got some amazing coats.

    How did that tV-A blazer work out by the way?

    It is appropriate because I like it, and really could not be less concerned with the design ethos of the makers. : )

    Also, from the interviews I have read with Schneider, and his outlook on dress, I think he would find the whole brand ethos synergy concept to be laughable.

    Thanks, Skipper, I appreciate that. Honestly, I would expected the same when I first started here.

    I think what brought me here was a mention in MC of some SWD fit getting a ton of thumbs, or maybe I noticed it in the daily stats, either way, I was curious what it was. So I clicked over and I was like, damn, thats cool. Then I kept reading, and even though I did not understand a lot of stuff, in particular I think there was a @diniro fit with a Budweiser print shirt or something, it was still fascinating.

    All the same, I figured I would hang out here because I liked the vibe and the people were cool, and swagbugers and glaciers, and hopefully the peeps would not bleed from the eyes if I posted MC fits. Instead, my MC fits were not only not booed, they were appreciated, which drew me further in to SWD actually, because it just showed a broader appreciation for different style.

    Over time, as SWD became more and more intriguing I thought I would give it a go. At first it mostly casualizing MC fits, and that was a mess. Over time I learned a lot more about what makes a proper SWD fit, and I strove to put some together. Some fails others not. Its a ton of fun, I love the items and the look, and I think Im much better off for it. Its added a dimension to the options of what I can wear and enjoy it and its really satisfying and challenging.


    I think that stylistically to change the sole of the boot would be a mistake. The sole it has is congruent with the boot itself. On top of that, I dont think anything I am wearing in that fit is chunky at all.


    Only way to find out would be to post in WAYWRN, but I think Im going to pass this time around.

    Yeah, I need to do that. Maybe Ill make a thread. Thanks for the reminder.
