    x-posting from SW&D, since this is kind of MC. Today: Went to a book store, got some starbucks, chilled in town, drove home, picked up mexican food, took pictures.

    That red PS has no business in this fit and that looks like a suit jacket.

    1) Burn jeans. I say this as someone who likes a lot of things Borrelli releases.
    2) Don't try to wear this sleek, 70s big collared jacket with anything casual. Pair it with something luxurious and go Tom Ford.
    3) When dressing casually wear a white cotton square or nothing.
    4) Reduce the amount of colour you wear, white shirt would be much better with blue jeans and brown suede boots.

    You look like a 90s Diesel ad reject or a guy who wears Axe body spray. Burn the shiny sportsy-fashiony jacket, ditch the black tee (it doesn't go with the shade of denim) and wear a white tee and a decent jacket and your outfit will improve a lot. A navy Harrington and *gasp* polo would look quite decent with the bottom half.

    Cdhagg´s chest is bleeding. Not good look for a bookstore.

    Can we also point out that Hagg clearly only went out to fulfill his fantasy of leading a fashionable and stylish lifestyle? And, in that respect, he's also doing it wrong because real ar-teests do not go to Starbucks.

    Jacket too dressy for shoes and pants. Stick to white pocket squares. Fit is schizo.

    If you are going to switch this suit jacket with a more casual appropriate blazer, you might want to check out long sizes instead of regular.

    Am I the only one seeing the illusion of a terribly broken right leg here?

    You're not this obtuse. You're taking the SW&D consensus about denim stacking and applying it to a pair of sweatpants. Not at all the same thing, and nobody on the other side of the fence is acts as though they are. Your knocks against SW&D don't carry much weight when you bog down your arguments with so many inaccurate generalizations.

    I'm assuming that you're saying that the above jacket is a suit jacket, and that when I go shopping for casual a blazer I should check out the 36L sizes instead of 36R... ???

    Actually, this is a blazer, not a suit jacket. It has red thread on some of the cuff buttons (which are functional), and a red lining... stuff you wouldn't usually see on a conservative orphaned navy suit jacket. Also, I don't like the length either, but if I had gotten a long the sleeves would have had to have been reduced, which would have been expensive.

    (BTW, u need to keep up with teh fashunzzz... short jackets r cool now. [​IMG])

    short jackets are okay, as long as they cover your ass and the button stance is not 4 inches above your belt. imho. in your case it distorts the proportions of your body quite a bit. a shame since the shoulders and sleeves are on par.
