    Yeah, the fit's fine. Also, I'm sure SVB was commenting on the previous post that claimed not to understand what an even earlier post meant. Confusing, I know.

    newyorkranger - again your pants are too tight and your roll/hem is sloppy. get the pants tailored. i dont think you post here for feedback though, and don't actually read/think about criticism.

    Oh who gives a shit

    you missed the point completely. it's the contrast between the shirt, which is extremely fitted, and the jeans, which, by your own admission, are not.

    and yes, I was just explaining what black_umbrella was talking about anyway

    That is odd... I think his pants fit him extremely well. And the hem is sloppy, so what? Those are very casual pants. I wear my chinos in a similar way.

    the pants are too tight in the crotch and top block. and the problem with the sloppy hem is that he's not wearing them casually - he's wearing them with a tucked in shirt and dress shoes.

    I generally agree with you. I don't like the contrast-collar shirt at all. The shoes are quite casual though and fit in that style nicely (different shirt assumed).

    im not a really on nyr's style in general. it's just.. too tight and too much. no sense of 'style' in the greater sense - it just seems to be a catalogue of whatever he bought last and wants to show off. everything seems box fresh in an awkward way, and it's very paint-by-numbers brand choices and styling options.

    edit: I guess what I'm talking about is taste level.

    It's simple and fits in his environment. Most of his stuff fits him very well, too. I'm not his biggest fan as it just doesn't resonate with me, but I appreciate his style for what it is.

    I don't think he really has a style. it's just a bunch of random new looking stuff that he wants to show off. it's not inventive or interesting, and i don't even think the clothes fit that well - a lot of stuff seems too tight, and he just crams item after item after item into the fit without a sense of it fitting well. i mean why would you wear a constrast collar shirt with casual chinos?

    His style is not inventive, that's for sure. But it doesn't have to be. He just looks solidly good most of the time. He also looks content in his clothing.

    I agree that the last fit wasn't that great.

    Casual chinos are dress pants to like 99% of everyone. That's one argument. I'm sure there are more.

    ^^Also, this sort of invalidates your by the numbers/ he has no personal style stance. He's got personal style, you just don't agree with it.

    hello world

    And another more recent fit:
    36°C in Germany, shirt without undershirt, chinos without socks.
    The shirt is a 120s two ply cloth and as opaque as a white shirt gets. Even with camera flash no nip slip or chest hair action visible.

    how'd I do? I'm 6'7" so keep in mind, that clothing options are rather limited for me :)

    For first timer, not bad.

    That being the case, welcome to the hazing:

    So I particularly like the way you choose a sweater to bring out the highlights in the urinal. Crop more- or go outside to take the photos. It'll do wonders for your acceptance.

    Do people actually walk outside with a tripod and a camera? or do they get their friends to take pictures from them for maximum internet acceptance? Either way I need to step up my game.

    That urinal was messed up... lord harington himself wouldn't know how to use it. It was mounted way to low on the wall. Like a urinal for ants. [​IMG]
