    Well, just a normal day, I'm going to run some errands wearing the following:

    SugarCanes 1947's, dry denim, not showing much wear.
    A random, black, Mr. T 'Clubber Lang' t-shirt that I picked up at the NBC store.
    Navy blue and white Pumas
    Navy Jack Spade 'St. Greene' messenger bag.
    Jean-Paul Gaultier 'Le Mâle'

    Yep, I was in an 80s mood today. I almost wore my ripped up and faded Levi's 501, but decided against it for the sake of saving others from having 80s flashback moments.

    I think it will be nice if you don't fold up your cuffs

    Color coordination seems fine, blue and blue is difficult to screw up. The shirt seems way too big--cuffs are loose, lots of blousing. Also seems quite sheer--maybe a vneck undershirt so as not to show skin in the body, or shirt at the collar? What's the collar shape?

    Jeans look nice, and I'm fine with the cuffs.

    I can't really see the shoes (what color are they?), but I'm not a fan of what I see. Looks a little American Jackass, for an australian.

    I know some of these things (size, sheerness) are preference, so if you like it, pay no heed to me.

    ^^^ No no, I asked for it, and am greatful for it all!

    Shoes are dark brown leather(very soft). What do you mean american jackass?
    Don't know the term, lol

    The shirt was tight most of the day, it got loose due to my figiting @ home.

    Thanks again for the comments (I'll gather a few more and might write why I was asking [cryptic I know, but there's no other way toget unbias feedback on what I'm after])

    PS I'll clean the mirror before I post any more photos, I usually look through the glass :/

    The shoes!!!!!!!!! AHHH, they are insanely horrible. You do not want to wear square toed shoes fit fitted or skinny jeans becauses not only does it make you look like bozo the clown, it also breaks your body up into non cohesive parts. I think an outfit should flow not be choppy and your belt and shoes do just that. Skinnier belt, pointier shoes should be really nice.

    I think the issue with the shirt is that it truly looks too big in those pictures. There is too much fabric around the waist, even it it was tucked in better there would still be too much fabric around the waist. The visible shoulder seam looks too far off your shoulder for the shirt to be fitting properly and as stated before the cuffs look too big for your arms.
    The thing with the outfit is balance. The shirt might look just fine (or better anyway) with a looser pair of dress pants or khakis but the tightness of the jeans really accentuates the fullness of the shirt. It causes an upset in balance.
    The shoes aren't my thing but I wouldn't beat you for wearing them either. There are better choices out there.

    Heh, I was going to say almost the same thing. A blazer with this outfit would be classic Am Jack. Shirt does look too big, and I'm not particularly fond of the cuffs, but I like the color combination for the most part. From the picture, the belt looks much lighter and more red than the boots, is that the case?

    As a fellow aussie you dress alot better than most of the guys i see [​IMG].

    Also is that shirt Kenji as in Kenji Urban? If it is, ive always found their shirts to be weird in sizes and fittings and would only suit the bulkier aussie men. Judging from the pics you look like you are my size and Kenji shirts definately don't look good on me.
