    JtothewhatI agree with gregor! The exploder relays too much of a strong streetwear vibe, and it takes away from the rest of your outfit and that's definitely the big standout. You'd be killing it with a wool coat or even a shorter cotton/denim jacket. I think the boots are fine but there's something about the pants barely touching the tops of your shoes that slightly throws something else off. Maybe experiment with higher boots, lower shoes, or consider putting a fold on the pants so that it completely hovers over the shoe! It could also just be the photo but other than those, it's a nice solid, simple fit

    eleves and gregors Thanks for the feedback! I definitely feel what you're saying, it was a consideration I had as well. I actually had on a wool coat from Ann D. that I usually wear to work but my wife said that the proportions looked a little funny so I changed. I kindof liked the silhouette that it created but the styling of the jacket probably creates a clash.

    The pants actually do leave a fairly big gap before hitting the top of the shoes but a fold probably wouldn't hurt.. I've also been reallly hankering for some black 992's and I think they would probably be a better fit with these pants and another cropped pair I have.

    I don't know why but I burst out laughing when I saw this in a very good way, excellent look.

    Maybe Trigger is talking about your toes pointing inward? However you could be pigeon toed (probably not).

    No angle can fix the poor photo quality. Try to use a phonecamera in broad daylight of use a proper camera.

    I don't understand the value of comments like these, frankly they seem a bit malicious.. I acknowledge that the picture is of a lesser quality than is accepted as the standard here -- for which I apologize (and will definitely improve in the future). However, I still think that the gist of the fit is visible, and that some critique can be applied (which is what I would appreciate, and is the partial objective of this thread -- the betterment of dressing, right?).

    Because while the real matters, so too does representation. And when the latter is poor, the former suffers. Don't ask members to ignore/decipher all the layers of mediation between their screen and your physicality.

    I don't think we're seeing eye to eye on my message unfortunately. I acknowledged that the quality of the photo is subpar and that there is certainly a difficulty in reviewing it. But is a comment like "needs better lighting, but from what I can see, need pants with a larger top block to match the top heaviness" better than disregarding the somewhat compromised photo entirely with "why are you standing like that"?

    Look, you can stop tap dancing around the issue.

    TD said that because you struck a "work it" pose and he was making a jerky comment about it. Believe me, there are a lot of "you better werk" poses in these waywt posts, it's not a big deal. Your photo quality is fine.

    Feel free to pose with whatever attitude you want, but if you do, someone might call you out on it, just as in real life. Some people werk, some people hate.
