    Maybe it is everyones time of the month?

    It was my understanding that cycles synchronize when users spend lots of time on SF.

    I, too, feel the jacket is pretty bad, what with the wide lapels/high button/old-looking pattern

    Kappelan, I know sometimes, when people critique one's stuff, one is inclined to say fuck you--I know this from experience--but, if you both apologise to each other, we can all be friends. :)

    1. He's biting his tongue; it looks foony.
    2. You'd think there'd be more motion lines in the photos--I know there are some pretty decent motion controls on cameras nowadays--but there is only one. This suggests these were pose shots. :eek: (And/or that they were well shot. :embar:)

    ^ Trousers look too long, but I like the look.

    I can get it. You don't like it and even though I do like it, it is easy to me get your point or points. But oh man, what kind of critique were those comments? Seems like sometime people here just feel guilty until they spread shit to each other. And after that they might feel like a hero or something?


    As I said before I can get critique but from my point of view, critique it is all about size, colors, rules and so on.

    I am not entirely sure what this means, Kappelan. In all honesty, I have come to agree with the elders of this place: there isn't enough critical discussion and too much gladhanding. I think you have an interesting style and push the MC envelope in directions it needs to go. That said, this fit is terrible. The jacket's lapels are enormous, its pattern/cut dated, and the shirt is totally incongruent. The chinos also do not pair well.

    Feel free to ignore me, if it suits you, but as long as people post pics here, I reserve the right to critique them as I see fit.

    Here we go finally. This is kind of critique I can accept and understand.


    But this was just a piece of shit.

    I agree about useless criticism...I think we're all guilty of it at one point or another. Re: the jacket, I think the biggest issue is the length. You're usually in shorter, more fitted stuff, this looks too long to my eye. Like something Holdfast would wear (not a dig at H, he's is comfortable and looks decent in longer coats).
