    Are you the reincarnation of Reevolving fits?

    Edit: Not to be an asshole, the advice is the same: longer trousers, sleeker shoes. Also the jacket doesn't fit well.

    The shoes are perfectly fine, just not with that outfit. Too bottom-heavy. Personal opinion, of course, but I strongly dislike those shoes in THIS ensemble.

    I feel the shoes would look better with jeans or something than the chinolinos. A word on sleek shoes, some people dislike them based upon the profile of their foot or, in my case, because sleek shoes are usually too narrow for my wider feet. Just an fyi for those always advocating them.

    The jacket looks like it fits in the shoulders but is tight in the chest and splaying open at the quarters. Do you happen to have narrow shoulders for your build? I.e. would sizing up in the chest/waist of the jacket make the shoulders too large? Would try it next time you try an OTR jacket.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Very true, but that's why you take all advice and adjust it for yourself accordingly. However, in the case of wide feet, I would stray away from contrasting bright soles, they tend to add girth visually, like in this case.

    That's why I have a contrasting under-penis.

    Long jacket and stacked jeans (plus maybe camera angle) makes you look out of proportion with elongated torso and short legs. This is why stacked jeans rarely looks good IMO.

    the jacket is completely unlined, and very light weight, so it wrinkles extremely easily. it's actually a little big in the chest, but fits well in the shoulders.

    the shoes are not clunky, it's the camera angle.

    see how the door, instead of being a rectangle, isn't?

    acecow you once again prove how fucking dumb you are.

    Nice look overall, but the blazer doesn't fit. Too short in length and too high of a waist/buttoning point. Shouldn't be seeing through to your shirt and belt buckle like that.

    Also, those chunky shoes look awkward with the tapered pants.

    yea. personally i like pants hemmed with 0 break. i find any sort of stacking/puddling on the shoe really sloppy looking.

    Whoah lighten up Francis. You post pictures, you're gonna get critique. You might not agree with said critique but no need to be coarse. It's only a message board.

    ^ You asked for constructive criticism on your fit. Acecow gave you good advice. Jacket doesn't fit. Shoes are too clunky. (lol if you think mcnairy shoes are sleek, you're delusional, nothing to do with the camera angle)

    If you're going to be a petulant, vulgar whiner and not take anyone's advice in stride, don't post here.

    please. acecow and i have personal history, and it's clear from his reply that he wasn't offering 'constructive' criticism, he was looking for an opportunity to talk shit. i'm happy to discuss the merits or many weakness of my outfit, but why respond to ridiculous trolling when it's clear that the camera angle is distorting the image? i promise you i'm not 80% leg, and that my neck isn't smaller than my wrist.

    the biggest issue with the outfit is the contrast between the brown of the shoes and the lightness of the trousers. needs something in dark tan or light grey.

    mcnairy shoes are sanders, so yes they can sleek or clunky, depending on the sole treatment or the particular design.

    this is the shoe in question -

    it's sanders standard plain toe blucher,

    i had them resoled on a single crepe sole. it's not particularly sleek, but it's also not a gunboat. somewhere in between.

    Vox wins in every category, except shirt sleeve length.

    Notice how much more proportionate the shoes are with the slim pants?

    i have a feeling that vox's picture wasn't taken from the vantage point of a shoe box on the floor, but yes i agree that vox's outfit is better. there's a big difference between bespoke everything and dirt cheap OTR, so...
