    Yeah, I know. There was definitely an SF period where I had my clothes way too tight (including the stuff I just posted). I'm trying to get better, but sometimes...:facepalm:


    As for my age + style, it goes back to me going to new schools, having new perspective, new haircut, etc., and getting new clothes just followed naturally. I know it's a radical thing to jump to suits/sportcoats, etc., but I've definitely gotten used to it and being comfortable in said clothes, and so have the people around me.

    I'm obviously still trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. I get advice here, which helps me along my sartorial journey. After all, my username is "wannabe".

    I'm 23 and i feel that his look is even to mature for me to pull off.

    Wearing cheap mall clothing is better for guys our age, mixed with some slight signiture touches from higher end brands

    There is a space between cheap mall clothing and teenagers/early twenty somethings dressing like Bertie Wooster every day of the year. Be in it.

    essentially:

    23....too young to wear a sport coat, button front shirt, and dress shoes all together casually.

    i have a very stong feeling he threw that outfit together just for this thread and didn't go out drinking or doing errands liek that anyways

    There was a time last year where I bulked up and had to upgrade from 38R's to 40R's. Everything started to be too tight.

    One tip about sizing: don't buy any jackets that aren't 2 inches up from your chest circumference. (+/- 0.5 inches) So if you have a 41 inch chest, you'd want jackets that are 43 (or 21.5 p2p)

    to be a bit more productive:

    visit SW&D and develop your own casual wardrobe.

    Easy to start with a good pair of jeans, boots and a nice leather jacket. Move on from there and see what you like.

    It's the mute swans as far as I know. They are under the protection of the crown.

    I assaulted one once and have thus far got away with it. They could be monitoring me though....

    I think it's time for Mr. Sam to put some six-shooters on your hips. And maybe a tumbleweed blowing by.
