    Not sure I understand the question.

    Edit: To explain why I wear what I wear: I like the aesthetic, so I wear it. I think it looks pretty, so I wear it. I don't really think there's any other reason someone actually does something aside from the fact that he likes it. Perhaps what I like doesn't coincide with what you like, but I do genuinely take enjoyment out of it.


    I'm not trying to pick at you here. I'm genuinely trying to understand. If you're already happy with what you're wearing, it's a waste of everyone's time to give you criticism because you won't change if you're not interested in changing.

    Don't wear those shoes with anything even similar to that fit.
    The colours are pretty pastel and unsaturated, I'm not a big fan of the way that all goes together colour wise.
    Cardi isn't great. Might look better open.
    I would not tuck the polo. Really, I wouldn't tuck any polo.
    Giant belt buckle must die.
    Fit on pants / polo seems fine.

    With the shoes, would you recommend skinnier jeans? or just don't like the shoes?
    yeah i wasn't too sure about the colours either. The jeans are actually are darker brown IRL. They appear sort of reddish in the photo. Still, the colours don't really work that well.

    Yeah, i'm especially uncertain about the cardigan. The colour is just too old man.

    I'm gonna agree to disagree on the tucking in of the polo and the belt buckle. It really isn't all that huge. As for the tucking in, i dunno, i just like it better that way. Hmmm, when i think about it it does run the risk of looking like i'm meant to be on the golf course, or worse, Johnny Drama from entourage. I dunno, i still like it tucked in.

    1. I don't like the shoes really but yes they would look better with a slim pair of jeans.
    2. Colour and texture. It's got this weird half-cable-knit-also-1/4-ribbed thing that just looks weird.
    3. You can disagree with whatever, but I have the almighty weight of the styleforum consensus on my side and you are doomed to failure if you attempt to stand in its path. And if I even notice your belt buckle, it needs to not be around anymore.

    Well played

    That said, JD is on point regarding the footwear. A Chelsea-styled boot would have taken care of business

    Sure. But I don't own a chelsea. I like them but, with my high arch, have never found a comfortable fit. Perhaps bespoke at some point.

    I have a simpler brown captoe I wear with this but the monks are my airport shoes and this was just off the plane.

    Fair enough.

    ^ You look fine, but is it really worth posting on a fashion site? No offense, I feel that way about half the pictures posted on here. Also, I think I get the point ofJonHecht's WAYWT posts. If you're on the east coast I'll help you cut out the middleman and PM you some good S&M clubs.

    Cool. I bow to your almighty weight. Here's an attempt at correction:

    My other cardigan. Not sure if the charcoal colour really goes with the brown jeans. May have to sub out the cardigan for a gray hoody i have, or just lose the jeans and start over.

    subbed out the belt, untucked the polo.

    My other pair of clydes. The alternative was a navy pair of low chucks. I think the chucks would be too slim to wear with these jeans. I suppose some badass boots would be the best choice, but i don't have any. Don't worry, they're on the list...

    Better? Could be improved? Start over?

    Yes, and I'll be more than happy to take my pic down if it really bothers you that much.

    ^SO much better! some boots or boat shoes would look great with that outfit but the chucks would be alot better than the clydes.

    I don't care for any of the individual pieces or how they go together. Something looks washed out in the photo, which doesn't help. The cardi might work if paired with other clothing.

    the issue is that brown orange color of the jeans dates them badly

    It is an improvement though. The cardi pulls oddly again and is probably better open.
