    Skinniness is OK IMO, but I think beat up indigo would be better color wise.

    IMO the black jeans work really well with the taupey colors of everything else. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯¯\_(ツ)_/¯¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I think you want a kind of trashy pair of jeans.

    If I think about when someone would wear a deep V T-shirt with that big jacket, it's when they don't give a fuck. But your jeans contradict that statement because they are clearly modern, slim cut, completely standard black jeans, like someone buys if they actually do give a fuck. IMO that is where the issue lies. So the jeans need to be either trashy (like worn out faded indigo denim) or maybe even flashy (i.e. ostentatious).

    And here's me in sweatpants. This is my "sick, but out of sick days" fit. Spent all day doing napping and doing code review so I didn't have to think [​IMG]

    Unfortunately my desk (where the camera is resting) is about level with my junk so pardon the odd perspective.

    Thanks for posting that runway pic. Awesome!

    That shirt really shines in that photo compared to yours and apart from the general lighting/photography aspect of it, one reason is probably the trousers. The blue really jumps out against the charcoal, whereas it looks a little dull next to the deeper blue you are wearing. I see it in a new light now (literally) and I think you might make it work yet.

    The subtle differences between the way the shirt is worn are important. The model pulls off a blousy effect by doing a couple of things: rolling the sleeves tight to the elbow, and buttoning up a few inches above the belt. Like you, he's a tall skinny dude. But the volume he achieves with the shirt is carried all the way down through the pleated trousers and chunky-soled shoes. You've got tight, stretched-out sleeves and slim, flat-front trousers, giving the opposite effect which is to emphasize your lankiness. There are times when you can emphasize your tall thin frame, but IMO the fit has to be otherwise really really great for that to work. Stanley Van Buren, Esquire goes that route sometimes but I think it works best with very clean dressy fits.

    I'm torn about the tee. Part of me wants to say that it's just not a good fit for a pale hairy dude and you should abandon it. The shirt already brings its own "That 70s Show" vibe, and the hairy chest sort of emphasizes that. (just being blunt as usual.) But maybe if everything else were tweaked that wouldn't matter.
