    pant length is a personal thing i think. I like lots of break because i don't like things to look too clean. Especially since it's casual stuff.

    The glasses are cool. Thumbs up. As are the shirt and shorts combo.
    Outside your window, is that fog or smog?
    The first time I saw the word, "langsam" was in a score by Bruckner: "Sehr feierlich und langsam"

    Of all the threads, in all the forums, in all the internet, you had to try and be a bully and take a shit and light fire to it in this one. Fuck you. Fuck you forever. There is nobody in the world right now who deserves to fuck off more than you.

    If you want to be an asshole, be an asshole -- but please, don't be an asshole about it. Lurk more and learn how to be a good contributor.

    So please; do fuck off. Go on. Off you fuck.

    On a less bitter note,

    Clap, you have great proportions. This is a nice look.

    I never would have considered a combination like this, but to my eyes it looks great. What shirt, btw?

    ^^ I can't figure out if wj4's stuff is too tight sometimes, but I really dig the idea of that one.

    that's what I ended up doing.
    I've been called many things, from Prince William, to Manuel Neuer, to Zach Morris...Chinese women around here tend to call me America Captain, which turns out to be their version of saying Captain America... Not that I would see any resemblance myself, but I'm totally cool with being compared to good looking people. [​IMG]

    That really means a lot to me, since I easily look like a human giraffe sometimes, given my height.

    No sweat, dude.

    Giraffes are rad, also.

    I've been wanting to try this combo for a while, and I can only do it on the weekends since it is definitely not business casual, haha. The shirt is Trovata.

    My stuff now is pretty slim fit, but not too tight. (Perhaps by MC standard you can consider it tight though). When I started to take on this aesthetic ~3 years ago, I emulated what I saw in GQ magazines with really tight fitting clothes. I eventually ripped a shirt when I was stretching my arms, and most of the shirts became unwearable when I gained a couple of lbs.

    Fair call. Usually, I think your fits are great for the most part.

    I had the same issue -- my shit was always pretty tight.

    I just wear stuff that's too boring to post in SWD for the most part.

    The bus actually came after I took that picture and the driver asked if I wanted to get on. I said no thanks, I'm just taking a picture. :embar:

    I like it but i think it makes your legs look to skinny.

    Looks good. I own a button-up of theirs. They have a tank top that comes in a great retro color combination:

    However, I hate tank tops. Wish this came in a simple t-shirt style a la LVC.
