    Still don't get a chance to do regular pictures, but here's one from a few weeks ago from vacation in what the Irish laughably call "summer".

    Pretty good example of what I think of as casual from a MC mindset.

    I agree with the part about having to do more work when editing text but what do whyou mean when you say "fix the camera angle?"

    Rainy as hell summer. Today's sunny outside, so it's time to take the cream linen out.

    +1. The fit is marvelous.

    I thought it was too low. Makes you look a little distorted and bottom-heavy.

    I agree. I've made the mistake of taking pictures from a low vantage point, and discarded them once I viewed them on my computer. I find that approximately neck height makes for the best photos - so if you're going to set the camera down with a self-timer, at least find some kind of ledge or shelf.

    Viewing pictures of yourself on your computer is very helpful in general though, I find it often reveals much more than just looking in the mirror. Similar to how your voice sounds so different if you record yourself and then play it back. In this case, I realized once looking at it on my computer that my sweater is a size to big for me - then again it was a gift, so I guess perfect sizing can't be expected. Almost SW&D, well it does involve the &D part, but with the button up shirt, I think I can still stick it in here.

    Was going to comment on the sweater, but you've said it yourself. May I recommend Land's End Canvas v-neck sweaters for a nice trim fit? Size down and you're good to go. I also found H&M sweaters to be a very good fit. However, the quality is obviously not stellar (although acceptable).

    Or, drop it on the dryer as I did by mistake, and end up with an action figure sized sweater..... :D

    Getting some great inspiration and learning a few things from this thread. Primarily that I need to lose a bunch of weight before I can post my fit pictures here. :(

    I like this fit. My initial reaction was that it was baggy, but it does looks relaxed and comfortable and that quality is usually quickly overlooked in favor of a more fitted ensemble. Like acecow said, you could slim down the sweater but I like it nonetheless.

    You don't have to. Nobody is looking for models/clones in here.
    Show with clothing that fits and flatters your figure and you'll be fine.
    I, myself, have been comfirming recently that, contrary to tendency to wear blousy clothes when you're overweight, fitted (not undersized) clothing fits you more. So, although I've gained some weight, people keeps asking if I've loose some.
    Well... I'm not a veteran but I say: you're welcome here.

    P.D.: I just realized that you have more posts than I, so I don't think you need this but, anyway, it's said.
