    If an outfit is inherently good, then it's good regardless of context. If he wore that to his grandmother's funeral--assuming she herself didn't go around in Rick steez--then it is most likely out of context. However, that doesn't make it a bad fit. It just shows that the wearer is unable to match his outfits to the proper contexts.

    Good Lord. You are awful.

    I do agree on this. Could vastly improve on fit-pick-taking mechanics/fundamentals. I am going to buy a good camera this weekend and make sure the cam is always chest level.

    Just a little punk behind a computer screen - nothing that warrants a further reaction. I'll admit my comment was a bit out of place though. Didn't mean to offened anybody in particular.

    Thanks for all the advice, guys. I really appreciate the insight you all have.

    Would it help to gain a little insight into what I want out of clothes? I think this fit sort of embodies what I want the foundation of my wardrobe to be. Which is to say a casual aesthetic employing a flattering silhouette with interesting textures. (Reading that back to myself sounds like nonsense lol.) I think the biggest area for improvement lies in the denim in the first and second fit. I'd really like to wear stuff like this 75% of the time and then throw in HF stuff from Prorsum, SLP and Margiela and whatnot to fill in the remaining 25%. I probably have the most fun wearing HF stuff, but it's not always the most appropriate choice.

    And for all those keeping score at home, I believe the footwear in the first and third pic are the only item sold by MrP. That being said, I didn't buy any of them from MrP. Although I do certainly think they are one of the better "big guy" online retailers.

    I then experimented with this:

    @spacepope really cool fit. Would be interesting to see the flowy-ness of the top reiterated somehow in the trousers.

    I like that fit with the jeans and the gats. Id be curious to see how the sweater would look/fit like without the undershirt or whatever is poking out from beneath it.

    Yeah I don't know what tomfuckery I just read on the past few pages, but it doesn't make sense to me. Fits look pretty good most of the time. Better than some of the pussy shit I see posted.

    Wrong! Always wrong.

    3rdC I like that second fit. Dunno why all the fuss, but maybe start simpler (as you've stated) and try for better photos (as you've also stated). I look like shit 99% of the time (spacepope looks like shit 100% of the time) and yet manage to convince the internet otherwise. There's magic in the camera, somewhere.

    It's probably fine. In another 3-6 months, I'm sure he'll be the next regis, mikey or snowman ;p Or some amalgamation of the three.

    Yea, I really got some of that camera magic.

    Just as long as I don't devolve into that dude/girl/person? who kept posting the same thomas pink shirt and gazino shoes complaining about her/his/its? thigh rashes, I'll be satisfied.

    tbh I stopped watching gundam unicorn after 2 eps cause I found the plot pretty bad even for anime. Unicorn was the main reason I watched, would buy the gunpla if I had time to actually build it.

    Take away the undershirt and that is exactly what I wear all the time. Can't go wrong with cream/blue/tan or white. If T3C throws in some light suede color boots what you get is my "uniform"

    Seeing as I have watched exactly one anime ever....Gundam Wing bros, Gundam Wing

    @einstine I think you have really poor posture. All the clothes you wear will always look off. You always look hunched in your photos.

    Relax.

    I don't think it has anything to do with how the photo is taken in this case.

    Some of the REIT bros can chime in.

    @Caveat From all the criticism you give, I am baffled that you applaud @accordion latest 'WAYWT'. It is a messy look IMO. Perhaps you're still adjusting as well because the said photo is quite poor. Lighting is too dim, and all you see is a floral shirt peeking out. It is quite jarring.

    @NewYorkIslander I find the first look to make you short and wide. I don't know if it is the coat or your beard.
