    Sorry for the crappy pics, but this is the first day it's been cool enough for me to wear the BB Fitz sport coat that I picked up during the last semi-annual sale. Unfortunately, it's also dark and dreary today. And too rainy for a full-length outdoor shot.

    I think the jacket looks great with jeans, and I wasn't expecting that when I bought it. It looks like charcoal gray from a distance, but it's dark green up close.

    This just shows what crappy colour rendering one gets with those shitty 'energy saving' CFLs. The jacket is actually blue, as in the above daylight pics.

    Thank you. :) Local designer who has his own boutique near where I live. called 'Mongol'. Don't think he's got a website or anything. Cost was 260 yuan, which is about $40 USD I think. It's quite a heavy denim, but not too stiff. Does a line of polo type shirts, but with a Mongolian style neck line as well, plus some hoodies with Mongolian designs on them. He tells me he's going to have some more Mongolian style gear in next month.

    If you're interested in having something like this, PM me. Would involve money transfer and shipping from China of course. I'm 6ft 2in chest 44, and the jacket is marked as XXXL.

    Had missed these comments, sorry about that.. However, the suede belt is Hilfiger and the cardigan is made by brand (maybe Danish) called Jack&Jones. Latter is a "youth / street wear brand" and the clothes are usually not really worth looking for.. But that cardigan was an exemption to that :)

    Here's one of those hoodies I was referring to...

    ...it is just some generic green hoodie with his Mongolian design printed on it. But they are cheap enough, the students like it, and will do for the winter. :)

    Hey, you're that guy with the toilet in his closet (or closet in his WC?)

    Just looked thru your Tumblr. There are a few things which aren't in line with MC groupthink (too many shirts undone on shirt, too many outfits with rolled back sleeves), but overall I think you've got a great diverse style. I think your best trait is really good colour mixing and being able to do "business casual" really really well, especially in the following outfits:

    My biggest gripe is with the camera angle and the fact that none of your photos have your suit jackets/SCs buttoned (which I guess is just your style), which makes it hard to assess their fit.

    Also, please don't post any animated GIFs of your various photos. It's painful on the eyes, and it makes it impossible to actually assess any of them. If you need to post multiple photos, just stick them into spoiler tags.
