    To my eyes, the split seams really help balance the proportions which is why the side view looks nicer (even though I know your comment was aimed at the shoes). I also agree on not liking the tee alone, it's too tubular for my tastes.

    JJvE just seems like a brand that will only work for stick thin fashion build types to me. Shape's cool but v unflattering for larger builds..

    I think the JJVE just looks better with shoes that are more relaxed. Also, those JJVE trousers and long tee covering it gives the illusion that you're sagging your pants, which may not be the look that you're going for.

    I think that Abraxis fit looks fine, just an awkward pose - try "casual hands in the pocket" thing rather than "hose monk meditation" and it'll look a lot more approachable. The side shots look pretty decent

    I saw at least 5 middle aged people being arrested walking from the parking structure to my first stop for errands. This was around 11:20AM. Then a huge parade that blocks off one of the biggest streets for the entire day. Took me 1 hour to drive 6 miles to the next place I had to go to.

    Well you, sir, picked the wrong day to do errands. In all seriousness, the nice thing about STP is that most of the real shenanigans are over by 3:00 (mostly because people start at 7:00).

    Oh man, if I'd taken that job I'd be working in the same building as Moo. Mind blown.

    EDIT: Never mind, was thinking of Market Square, not Ferry. Duh.

    I love you nn, and the individual peices fit great, but looks so weird together. Like some wizard from harry potter trying to pass as a muggle.


    Im not cool :embar:

    I think one issue I see a lot is that JJvE is oversized, but doesn't elongate the silhouette - it's often really widely cut and then becomes kinda boxy and shapeless in a way that's unflattering. Like everything needs the sides taken in a few inches and it'd look a lot better. I love a lot of the designs, but (with the exception of Ivwri's kimono cardigan) I have not yet seen a piece worn where I actually thought it looked decent.
