You know, like the shape your foot is in.

I want a military style jacket and I found two i kind of like, but I am favoring one more than the other

http://www.express.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=5403&parentCategoryId=1&categoryId=80&subCategoryId=148
I like that one better I think

http://www.express.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=5396&parentCategoryId=1&categoryId=80&subCategoryId=148
That is the other option.

I would post pictures of me trying on both, but I don't have them.

That website appears to hate me so I cannot see the full-size pictures. But, from what I can tell by the tiny little thumbnails, both are good jackets, though the second does appear to have a more formal feel.

First Army Jacket is a major Don't, the second one is much subtler and generally stylish.

Also that Boba Fett Hoody is for extreme Motocross types with poor fashion sense.  I would not recommend it.

my fashion advice is to get a pair of leather shoes that have a pointy toe instead of a square toe, in a medium brown or darkish red colour instead.  They feel fancy and kind of a pain in the ass

I have shoes just like that, and I thought I'd posted them in this thread before, or maybe the pic thread. Anyway, I just really like sneakers, and my job a) is pretty cool with allowing me to wear sneakers and b) requires a fair amount of walking, which means it is good to have comfy shoes. Dress shoes are for dressy occasions.

Dont under estimate the potential comfort of a nice pair of shoes.  Guys shoes arent designed to punish our feet in the name of fashion.

Also, ignore Emaline, she is w-r-o-n-g.  That first shirt is great, it fits on the small side of well, but it does flash a comfortable level of tat, which makes up for it, and the pattern is nice.  So if you can, dont be afraid of trading it in for the same thing one size up.

*edit*

To Emailine, ok fine, we are on the same page then.  Truces all 'round

I am saying it is wrong because it is too damn small. If it fit him properly, it'd be fine. I think shorter sleeves are nifty on people with tattoos to show off, but that doesn't mean that grown men should shop in the little boys section. You could be wearing the Greatest Shirt In The World, and it'd still look terrible if it didn't fit.


Dear People Of The World,

Dislike looking over weight? Buy clothes that fit!

I used to have a friend to hated how fat she was. All the time she'd complain and complain about it. But she wasn't really that fat! A bit healthy sure, but not fat. Nothing she really needed to get rid of. But she wore a size 10 when she should have been wearing a size 14. The size 10s would squeeze her fat out and over her pants, making her look a lot bigger than she was. If she would have worn a proper size, she would have looked lighter.

When your shirt is so tight, you can use your buttons as weapons, you need to get a bigger size, or be sure to provide everyone around you with goggles for when those buttons pop off.

This is a little off topic, but every single time I see a girl sporting a mohawk and I don't stop to say "that's awesome, we should be friends" I  know that I'll regret it forever.

I think my first girlfriend spoiled me (she had that crazy liberty spikes style of mohawk that was really damn long and my god was she attractive) as to what hairstyles I think are attractive.

Yeah but I think it'd be fine if I wore it without a t-shirt underneath, like I am there. I tried it on in the store and it was fine then. So it's either the t-shirt or I gained hell of weight in the last two weeks.

Quote from geekologie-
"Vibram's line of FiveFingers shoes (shouldn't that be FiveToes shoes?) are, um, unique. As an owner of Nike Air Rifts (that just have the big toe separated), I find these oddly appealing, yet disgustingly disgusting looking. I just hope none of my winter gloves catch sight of these things, because they'll fight them for being copycats. They sell for between $70-$100 and are allegedly great for all sorts of make believe sports like ChiRunning, Pose Method Running, and Bouldering. And, if they're anything like my barefoot style running shoes, they're even greater at smelling like ass."

You don't have to style it how it is shown. They are essentially wraps. You can style them anyway you want. They letter I got with them says there are over 100 different ways to style it. They all have different shapes. I came up with my own way to tie it today, and I think it looks really nice. I will try to take pictures and post them later, if I can find a working camera. It looks cute.

The way they are styled in the pictures looks like south asian sarongs. I think they are cute.



Also the toe shoes are terrible. I actually have two reasons I cannot wear them: 1) they are terrible, and 2) my second toe is longer than my big toe, so they wouldn't fit.

those things could shave minutes off my murder time.

I think the skirts are cute when not worn all bunched up.

I think the shoes are ridiculous. They make me laugh.

I have no idea how 511s fit, and would never buy jeans that I hadn't been able to try on first. Maybe you could look for some at a thrift store and try them on there before ordering? I dunno.
