    You do a lot of casual looks that would be improved by wearing some sleek zip or chelsea boots, especially when a pseudo-70s dress shirt is involved. This makes it a little bit less business casual and maybe more mod, yeah?

    Do you have a ponytail? I bet you had an amazing time in Thailand and are all spiritual and shit, you probably work in conflict resolution and masturbate in your bath while scented candles burn and world music plays in the background. Maybe it is time to either give up the henleys with bizzcazz or tone down the bracelets and necklace? Oh and scarves are worn over sweaters, fuck that spazzatura bullshit All at once and you remind me of Californians who do zen meditation and surf.

    Moleskine pants please! I like everything else, I might even forgive you for wearing heavy chinos cause you're so British.

    Logo belt, hybrid shoes and zip sweater are absolute DON'T, bag looks good. Oh you're Russian, nevermind.:devil:

    I understand you're going for a rugged traveler look or something (lots of business guys seem to dig that stuff), you'd look much nicer with jodhpur boots (yeah 15 secs more at the airport, who cares?) and a rougher looking belt to wear with jeans. I guess you can keep the H buckle if you like it but get a belt that is casual not formal. I personally can't stand zip sweaters and would replace with a v-neck or heavy cardigan.

    They're like the Heideggerian gentleman choosing his suits in the sense that they know what works when they look at it but don't have to formally define it as the whole thing is organic and linked to lifestyle, education and a holistic approach. The problem with MC is that it is based on clothing fetish; parts are focussed upon (and sometimes garments without even including the body), salivated upon and processed separately (then patched together) which explains the shoe/the rest dichotomy we both complain about.

    It's a consequence of sleeping face down and not showering, something with which you are also familiar.

    Thanks j_t. I'll have to do a little more work to get a full body shot, but you're right, the odd angles suck. And you're also right about the trying too hard. [​IMG] It's easy for n00bs like me to see some of the other fits posted around here and think that we can jump in at that level. I appreciate the feedback.

    Duly noted. Thanks for commenting! Last time I wore that jacket it actually was with a white shirt and a dark brown v-neck and it seemed a good combination. Since I'm just learning, I tend to want to try something new all the time rather than sticking with what has been proven to work. Bad logic, I know!

    Ha! That's funny! Not quite as funny as it would be if I weren't on the list, but funny nonetheless. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't dare rebut the SF members opinions, because receiving them is exactly why I'm here (and I realize that it's all in good fun). BUT, I will say that IRL, my chastity belt rating seems to be a bit lower than reflected here (not that it really matters because I am completely committed to my wife, but...) last week a woman with whom I had spent about 20 minutes in the course of my job that day called the receptionist at my office and asked if I was single! It was a nice confidence booster and I really have to give some credit to you guys here at SF. I've been making an effort to practice what I'm learning here and it's having an effect on the way people treat and interact with me. So...thanks!

    You've got to go track down Acridsheep's diagram now, while you still have a chance.

    [​IMG] I haven't worn that sweater since then. Argyle doesn't quite work with my personality or age, socks notwithstanding. argyle socks = fun argyle sweaters = stuffy. Shoes are Alfred Sargent and easily my favorite pair.
