How do I Look?

Clothes

Oh yeah I forgot to mention I had just gotten back from work. I just threw on the jacket to take a fit pic, so basically ignore the bottom half.
@tomsfood I like the fit of my pants, but I feel the top is too clean for the shoes.

@windowflowers, to clarify, I was only half joking

I do think that all of those would look very good with that outfit (they also happen to be things i own though)

as is everything looks unworn and inoffensive.

scrutinizing, proportions in the first flare at the hip, this can be alleviated by a) shoulder workouts or b) less roomy shirt. second proportions are fine. i like the fit of the top. let your hands rest. your jeans look a bit tight, more length on pant waist would fix that.

suggestions: roll up your pants a bit. personally i like to let my jeans fall over my sk8his but you be the judge. different laces maybe? i personally prefer black laces on black vans. pair the second fit's top with the first fit's shirt. optimally, a different buttonup with a slimmer chest/midsection.

fits look fine as is. put on a cool jacket.

I enjoy the shirt+shoes combination. As far as jeans go, I would prefer a cut that was fuller and less tapered, but still hit at right around the same area of your ankle.

Image

like i've never owned green cargos before so i dunno. these are the gap ones. seem decent quality. got them last week with 40% off and today is another 40% off and i'm tempted to get the black...

Unsure about this one. I really like the coat but the cut may not be right for me. The shoulders fit perfectly but there's just so much material that it kind of folds in on itself when standing still. Maybe I can get a gif of me walking in it.

Image

Here's the coat on the runway. Mine is a presentation sample so I'm wondering if its the same one? A 6'3" model wearing it vs 5'11" me might be the difference in how it looks.

yeah darts might work, to bring it down to manageable size. obviously you don't want to take out too much. it could actually work as is, maybe just wear it out a few times to get a sense of how it moves etc.

tried using my commuter trucker as a layer, but the parka is very much holding this back. need some suggestions for a nice big black parka that would work better with something like this.

@ques i think fashionwise it'd probably look best just by taking the jacket off (and undoing the top button of the shirt if its buttoned, cant tell) but to tbh you look so comfy/at home the way it is i just wouldn't change a thing :cool:

af1s and those pants look really nice on you

Been having difficulty figuring out how to wear this Dana piece I got on the cheap. It's pretty big. This is the happiest I've been with it.

Made this recently, its outta the same fabric as a scarf/shawl thingy i wore in a previous fit.

Should i have went with no socks or black socks here? Also is there another way to wear this(if any) without pairing it with a shirt or oversized sweater at all? Basically just need a bit of feedback =]

no socks would have been better

i wish i could see it better but from what i can tell i don't like

the fabric is wrinkling in an odd way to start. the overlapping fabric on your left side makes it look like you just took a roll of fabric and wrapped it around yourself, this is reinforced by the mismatched length of the hem overlap (which I imagine is intentional, but not working here as the edge of that looks like the edge of a roll of fabric). A different fabric might do it -- a light wool that falls a bit differently and doesn't wrinkle as harshly would be my first choice due to the hanging bit on the left side which could flow really well.

derbies and the shirt are definitely an easy Right styling choice here, shirt fit is fine for it. My issue comes not with the concept of a skirt but with the execution of this one.

Shirt is seriously on fire though

If that skirt-thing is something you made, keep it up! Would love to see another iteration of it on you as the circumference and fact that it falls pretty straight seems right

Awesome, thanks man really appreciate the feedback.

The hem overlap was one of my biggest concerns besides wearability, i think i tried too hard to give it a raw-unfinished look. I see what you mean by it looking like i just wrapped it around my body, i never really noticed it before.

Ill look into using some different fabrics and experimenting some more.

Thanks again.

I like this more and more than some of your older stuff. Pants+shoes are absolutely on point. This is super nitpicky but in the layered outfit you have a weird fit going on around your gut (not that it's showing your fat or something like that, just that it doesn't mix well with the silhouette built on the top with that. I want to guess it's probably just the way you're posing or something simple like that, and either way it won't be noticed when you're you know -- breathing and existing as something non-static.

Additionally -- I like the deeper neckline and don't think the asymmetrical hem of the undershirt gives you much with the layer. It's a cool texture for sure, but I'd love to see a tattered hem rather than the clean asymmetrical hem you have to elevate it.

Good stuff all in all, keep it up.

@rycepooding

reminds me of a labcoat or a workshirt with extra pockets, leaves you with a bunch you could do

cut the sleeves off at your elbow. Hem the sleeve, and cuff it all the time. Wear with two buttons buttoned (middle two) and some short shorts. Bike around the US with a pack of playing cards in the top pocket and random snacks in the bottom ones.

huge collar oxford (pink) with some white pants and some white suede wingtips. Walk into local stores that sell things that aren't related to medicine and convince everyone you're a quack

Sleeves rolled up to your shoulders, white hanes tee with the neck cut out (sleeves hanging out under the jacket), baggy linen pants and some sort of sandal for footwear and go bum around a smalltown in the US for a day sitting on a bench near City Hall

and no, I don't believe in multiquotes

@ques



definitely dump the collared shirt, would instantly bring this up as the shirt is up patrick ervell's teen dream alley rather than the slutty 80s sort of jizz the jacket & sweater give off.

The dad jeans + shoes are an unexpected combo that work really well, especially with the top. Combined with the jacket and hat, I definitely get a sort of 80s jiggalo feel in the best way. The sweater feels like a miss -- mostly because the sleeve length is bothering me. The graphic on it makes it with the jacket, otherwise.

Im just messing around with random pieces i have, didnt actually wear any of it today.

I feel like i tried way to fucking hard on this one, lol. Ive been trying to find ways to incorporate these pants more into my wardrobe, but im really lacking on drapey pieces as well as knits/cardigans/etc. Anyways, what do you guys think? The more i look at it the more i feel like i shouldnt be wearing the boots.
