    ThirdConcord, you've got some great pieces that fit well, but some of your fits look a bit.. stuffy? Is that a proper descriptor? Like you're trying to emulate runway looks with tucking shirts into jeans, fancy scarves, etc., but I'd like to see everything a bit more loose and casual, especially with the scruffy beard (that I also rock). Like Synth said, a long white t-shirt would make that fit a bit more accessible, and with an awesome jacket like that, you don't really need to add anything more to the fit

    edit: And yeah, some denim or pants with a bit more volume would add some nice shape to the bottom of that fit

    Yea, white tee + black DR is like page 1, chapter 1 of the heterosexual handbook.

    Boots are different in that fit, but I wanted to try something new with the tucked in shirt. Used these two pics from SLP as inspo: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/d4/92/18/d49218a9d01d556f3c600a97f7cc118d.jpg and http://photos.gq.com/image/upload/v...t-laurent-paris-fashion-week-fall-2013-19.jpg

    Going to Vegas at the end of the month. Will be trying on lots of black denim to replace these 2yr old Acnes as my go-to pair.

    Speaking of Dries, I would love to own something like this one day. http://www.thecorner.com/us/men/jacket_cod41514188fu.html?sts=dreambox80

    So you will leave it to my discretion?

    @The3rdConch0rd your style is definitely a bit different from the run of the mill SFer and that's not a bad thing. I think you could pull of that look in the first runway pic, but you need to ditch the scarf, add a sleek belt, unbutton the jacket, and get a point collar shirt. The Ervell, or any button down collared shirt isn't going to mesh with that kind of look.

    To be honest, I think what is happening here is that you are sort of punching above your weight stylistically. Meaning that you're going for looks that have a really high degree of difficulty. They can be done...but you've got to really get the details right. When you miss, you're going to look like you're trying to dress like a runway model and failing, which is what NN was referring to.

    I used the scarf, which I felt was light and airy, to sort of tone down the harshness of a black shirt tucked into black denim in an otherwise all black fit.

    I fell like loose-and-casual is the basis for like 90% of my fits. I mean, the below fit is pretty typical of me to wear (except when it's warmer I'll wear a drapey white tee or add a jacket over the tee). I'll try to convey that aesthetic in my other fits--thanks!

    @shootspeed my personal favourite fits of all SF - dig this almost as much as that old picture of you in cons from way back.

    @Benesyed feel like the past few from you have been a big improvement

    Im going to have to defer to some Fuuma wisdom. You look like you got gangbanged by the Mr Porter monthly newsletter.

    are the pants just the ervell standard jeans in black? I thought ervell only worked on super lanky guys but they look great here!
