I think a lot of men would gladly wear suits more often if they could get a better fit. I know I would.
No, really, I saw a book that referenced "suit codes" describing the "type of guy and his suit."

Back in the 60s 70s here in Glasgow everyone had custom made suits, it was just something they always did... and we had lots of tailor shops all over the town..Even Sean Connery got his suits made here in a wee tailor shop in Dennistoun when he was famous...and my cousin who had emigrated to the States would come home on holiday and also have three made from this tailor shop..but on reading the thread title... surely 25 is really still a boy in mens terms hahaha. they dont grow up anyway.

Why do you care so much what someone wears? Are you part of the fashion police?

Anyone else agree?

I've provided just enough plutonium for a one-way trip back - to 1917. Enjoy!


As for rest of us, we've resolved to believe that age is just a number.

This thread has got to be setting a record for longevity on CD. And as soon as it finally wears out or gets locked down i'd like to have the original SQL of it to send over to the Smithsonian Institute.

I know it's a few years old, but I LOVE idiotic posts like these. They're always made by someone who's a guaranteed moron in the real world.

�� this post is great.

Nothing sexier than a grown man that can sport the "low brow" vans with graphic tee one moment and the "high brow" Brunello Cucinelli, Ferragamo and the like the next.

Who resurrected this thing? It's 4 years old. Or has it been going non-stop all this time?

On reviewing this thread (I'm bored, OK? Get over it) this is about the only thing the OP said that's actually halfway agreeable. Hopefully sooner rather than later, there will be a backlash against this "fashion", if it can be so termed, and it dies a slow, painful, sadistic death and normal jeans will flood the marketplace again. Not that Wranglers and Levis have ever been unavailable, but still.

(Next ironic hipster trend: 13MWZs. Who knows, it might prove they actually have a little bit of taste.)

Oh. And I am supposed to listen to advice from someone who is afraid of looking "like a homosexual"?
Who appointed you arbiter of class and taste? Trump?
