What kind of dumbassery is this? It's just a black shirt...with epaulettes.

And black shirts rarely look good.

It a pretty simple shirt, nothing exciting about it really.

If you are the model, then the shoulders are too wide for the shirt, and it is a little too full in the body as well.

Not sure why people are against simple shirts here. Simple button up shirts should make the majority of your rotation, in my opinion. The only problem here, I think, is that it's black, which tends to age poorly, and that it has epaulets. Those are the kind of details that turn a decent shirt into something that you rarely pull out of your closet.

If it weren't black and didn't have those epaulets, it would be a great shirt.

Also, I think people on this forum take the slim thing way too far. This isn't the best fitted shirt in the world, but to call it baggy seems excessive.

This is a very casual and very cool looking shirt. Black is my favorite color, with right kind of accessories it will look greater!!

+1 We're not 'against simple shirts'. We just think it's stupid for someone to create a whole thread saying 'HEY GUYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THIS SHIRT' with a picture of a plain old black shirt. Yeah, it's a black shirt, what the fuck do you want us to say about it?

If it "weren't black and didn't have those epaulets" then it could be literally any other shirt on the entire face of the planet. Those are the only two features that differentiate it at all from any other shirt... (And isn't the OP the same guy who keeps asking us about gaudy logo-covered watches then getting all butt-hurt when we tell him how tacky they look?)
