I like it a little, and it's what they are using now. I'll try to find the old style, or maybe some Crye Multi-Cam.

So ordinarily I agree with all of you guys about empire waists. They are an affront to my sense of style.

For some reason, though, I tried this on in a store and liked it enough to buy it.



Question: I know my head is cut off, that's because I don't have a self-timer anymore, but what do you think of the shirt? Terrible/Wear it if nothing else is clean/It's Okay but not great/Pretty Good/Awesome Shirt?

I honestly can't tell, because it is still empire, but it is at least fitted...

I agree with Jimmy on both counts. Black is classy.
Edith, I like the shirt but you need to wear something with it, it's a little plain on its own.

I've always wanted one of those Soviet rabbit-fur-lined hats.

I assume they wouldn't be stylish at all, but they just look cool, and it gets cold here in WI in winter so I'd have opportunity to wear it.

You should get Flecktarn. This stuff: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Flecktarn.jpg

I think they have coats, I don't have one, but I would assume they do. If not, well, anything but ACU, that looks like you are wearing camo for use in the oatmeal peninsula.

edit: Oh my God... I found a camo jacket that extends into a trench coat-ish thing, that is awesome. Don't much like the pattern it is in though, alpenflage is a bit too bold of a pattern for my taste.

I have to cast another vote for empire waists not being ALWAYS bad. I actually usually hate them on dresses, but I found this one and I think it looks pretty cute.


Shirts though? Skip it unless it's cut like Eed's up there where the stomach bit is fitted, not all floppy and maternity.

I think empire waists can look either really good or really bad, depending mostly on whether or not they get narrower under the boobs, and then on how "flowy" the fabric is. If they just hang down from the boobs, then yes, they cover any potential extra flabbyness, but they also often make people look pregnant. But in cases like the dress two posts above and Edith's shirt, they look pretty damn good, and they can also help hide some belly without making you look pregnant.

Peacoats are pretty much always yes. Outfit-neutral, which is great when you have to wear it all winter, and they are classy

pamplemousse- Yes, for sure. I love peacoats even though I haven't been able to get my hands on one yet.

ThisIsOriginal- I am not really a fan of sneakers in general, so I don't really like those, but I guess they are better than an all-white pair, so you could do worse.

It's hard for me to tell what the orange one will look like with someone wearing it, but as for the purple one, I am not a fan of the shoulder things.

I found this one and I think it looks pretty cute.

Well I guess you are not very fashionable then, Joe.

And I love dresses! I only have three that I can really just wear, and one for formal occasions, but I would love to get more. Unfortunately both of the dresses i posted are super-expensive designer stuff that I will never be able to afford.

I like the one on the right, even though my initial reaction was a little negative because I thought I saw cuffs on the leaves that would make it hug your amrs, but on second look, no, it is nice. I like the cut of the blouse part and the skirt is pretty cool too, I like the buttons going all the way down, and the waste-line looks like it would be flattering on a lot of people.

The dress on the left is a little on the... interesting? Side? I would have to see someone with an actual chest wear it instead of an anorexic man, but I am going to go out on a lim and say that the dress is not going to look good on anyone. Not to mention the top looks like it is meant to bind the boobs... is that intentional?

Yes, it is interesting. And that is why I like it! I have plenty of simple clothes already, so I need some more interesting pieces. It is called fashion. Most boys just don't get it.

Man, this is kind of turning into a purple dress hate-fest, but I don't care for it that much either. I actually don't mind the top bit, but I think the bubble-dress style band at the bottom would automatically equal huge butt for anyone with curves.

The red/orange dress is really classy and could probably look pretty pin-up girl hot!

First through NotCouture, then here upon further research. It also comes in stripes, though I don't like that style nearly as much. And a top!

Manda, I see what you mean about the bottom. If I were to actually get the dress I would have a tailor remove the hem so it would be more A-line.

I totally agree about the sweaters. Minus the stripy hoodie-thingy, didn't like that one. Or the pants on the two first models (but I guess those weren't the point either). But other than that; yes!

And I forgot to add earlier, but I really loved the black peacoat pictured earlier. Wish I had the body to pull of something like that!

EDIT: the first one actually isn't that bad. the non-sweater, brown thing with lots of pockets. i might wear that if it was a gift or something. i'd never buy it.
