    This deep V is making your neck appear extremely long SVB. I've been really digging your recent contributions due to your proportions looking really good, but this shirt doesn't flatter you.

    This is MUCH better. Quit trying to dress like a hipster douchebag and just be simple with it. The results speak for themselves.

    Yup - a vast improvement over those ridiculous half-mast jeans. I dunno what that was all about but clearly not necessary when you have posted a load of very good pics lately.

    Wow, you basically look like I did circa 2008. TM Lewin shirt, BB tie, J Crew pants and AE shoes is exactly what I was wearing around that time. You also seem to suffer from a lot of the same problems I had. my input:

    - the TML "slim fit" isn't slim enough and the collar band isn't high enough. you probably need to go MTM so I'd check out moderntailor
    - tie is fine actually, just make it longer. don't listen to anyone who tells you to do a 4IH with a cutaway collar like that though, that's ridiculous
    - J Crew fit/quality is pretty meh and it shows; pants from Epaulet or Incotex would be cut better, drape better, and will last longer
    - belt should be slimmer as has been noted
    - AEs are ok, just not that special. they're fine with this fit but if you up your game on the other points, you might want to getter better shoes to anchor it all as well

    Sure, I'll bite the bait just for the heck of it. 1st, I dress to satisfy myself and I post these pictures up just to participate. I highly doubt anyone's opinion will change my aesthetic, but thanks for yoru 2 cents though. The white t shirt and jeans were worn just to run an errand. When I'm at home, I just lounge around in basketball shorts.

    PS have you ever post up any outfit pictures since you seem to comment so much?

    CDHagg: I wish I can be 007, bro. Alas, I'm not good looking enough (or British) :(

    I don't think anyone needs to post outfits in order to comment on other people's pics... I do however disagree with Rambo's comments. I think your last fit is consistent with your others.

    Don't mind Rambo - he's just a cranky old bore (5)
