Please share with me your insight about this outfit that I wore today. The thing is I had received some snarky comments about how I look in this outfit on a Facebook page. My question is: In your professional opinion, is it as bad as they made out to be? Any input will be appreciated.

I remember reading one of your posts about your collection and I know you have some really nice jackets. But that one don't fit you with the sleeves. It could be a million dollar jacket, it still ain't going to help. It reminds me of how I buy my kids one size bigger because I know they're growing LOL. You got to find a high end seamstress that can fix that for you.

The other thing my wife sometimes points out on my outfits is in theory, if you're mixing colors, you're supposed to go from darker to lighter from bottom to top. There's some exceptions to the rules of course. But the white shoes and white shirt and black jacket is a little too "oreo". I think darker shoes (or even white base with black accent like a classic adidas shell toe or GAT with grey or blue accent) and/or darker tshirt (not necessarily black, but dark grey, light blue, or white shirt with some sort of colored graphic, etc.) would be less contrasty with the black jacket.

edit: and just read Ton's note. For sure-- belt. I missed that. A nice chunky black belt with cool buckle alone would help a lot.

The jacket is perfect! That said, you might consider elongated your arms a couple of inches.

I'm curious, what kind of snarky comments? That's how I dress pretty much all the time and have been for many years. Sleeves are a bit long but it's no issue at all and the jacket looks great on you.

Thanks, I tried zipping the sleeves, but the bulges made it look worse than unzipped and I’m not prepared to take the risk of letting a tailor to shorten it, not knowing what the outcome is gonna be like, I might ruin a beautiful jacket.

bulges or stacks? I think stacks on the arms of jackets look cool. If the bulges bother you maybe wait to see how they feel and look when broken in.

I believe you should wear what you like since developing personal style is your journey alone but as a fellow sneakerhead, i don’t think the Nike vapormaxes work with the cross zip. I love the white sneaker/black leather combo, but I prefer lower profile and sleeker white shoes to complete the look. For example, common projects, chuck Taylors, vans originals, Jordan 1 lows, addidas classics, etc.

I was walking down the street with my gf, wearing my ELMC californian, when a guy approached us and complemented me on my jacket. He even asked about the maker and where he could get one.

When we walked on I said to my gf "see, people do notice I'm wearing nice jackets". She just chuckled.

The jacket looks great. The big issue is that the sleeves are at least 2, perhaps 3" too long. I have had to get the sleeves shortened on two of my jackets and it made a huge difference. I'm not sure if that's what the snarky comments were in regard to, but other than the sneakers not really fitting with the jacket in my opinion, that's the only issue I can see. I like the tucked t shirt.

Very nice jacket Jin431. I realize they're different in a few respects, but how would you compare this to your new FL (e.g., leather, fit, feel)?

Maybe different glasses and zip up the cuff to tighten the sleeve so not too long, the rest is fine imo wear it like you dont care, and act like you dont know someone taking picture.

Thanks @dudewuttheheck the brown mulholland is really lovely to wear.

The fit and style is just perfect. Masculine is the right word for it. It's really your best fitting leather jacket!
