For once Thomas, I disagree! Akil is one of my favourite style bloggers. Always looking sharp, fit always on point, accessorises really well. Today is no exception. Lovely blend of A/W textures, beautiful shoes, and check that feather in his cap! Pfft….forget about it.
^ Sheesh…high strung much??? If you don’t like a guys style thats cool but to call someones style contrived & insipid you should make some points as to why you feel like that.
Otherwise you look like you’re trolling or just a hater.
We’re all grown adults here, let use our words. lol (but seriously).
I love the style, to me it looks effortless and he has made it his own. The only problem I have with the outfit is that, unless I am mistaken, those are flat front pants and they shouldn’t have a cuff. That is all.
This is a style blog…if I want print fashion, I will read GQ or details. And if you’re going to bitch and moan about feedback, perhaps posting up pictures in an open forum isn’t the best idea…..cheers!
Um several points.
1 – this guy is all about style, as opposed to fashion
2 – how can you say someone is contrived when you don’t know them or their motives?
3 – Marco didn’t put the pictures up
4 – this one is advice for myself – don’t feed the troll!
Anyone & I mean anyone can go on a blog and say “This person dresses horribly, etc.” But you can tell when ppl have actual understanding of fashion/style by the REASONS they give to back up their OPINIONS.
There have been ppl (on other blogs) that have talked sh*t about pics of Ozwald Boateng, Angel Ramos, Lino, etc. without knowing who these guys were. Then they do some googling and change their tunes in future post.
Its easy to hate something that you’re not used to or goes over your head. But a grown up knows this isn’t proper.
Im not even saying this Ty character (take offense, I don’t too much care) has to agree with a pic he genuinely thinks is in poor taste. But at the very least he should give some reasoning as to why he feels that way.
The majority of ppl on this site are here to get tips/ideas/share info & advice. Don’t waste the free flow of info just because you’re too blinded by hate/jealousy/arrogance to get out of your own way.
I’ve been wearing clothes all my life, however I’m no expert, I’m just some guy sitting at my laptop sharing my opinions. If it’s really good or not to my liking, I’ll leave a comment. If I think that you’re trying too hard to impress or your ensemble is more about throwing your labels and “sprezz” all over the place, I’ll definitely let you know.
I also HATE seeing denim and sneakers paired with suit separates. If you’re a grown a$$ man, don’t do it. (Again, just my opinion).
In the case of the gentleman in the photo above, for my own personal taste there isn’t enough contrast in colors or textures.
I agree with Marco~ If you don’t like something, give specifics as to why. Otherwise you’re just another faceless a-hole cluttering the internet.
Okay here it goes: the hat doesn’t work, it is the wrong color and style for this outfit. There are entirely too many color variations and none of them work together particularly well. And if you are wearing a suit, sport coat or blazer, it should be buttoned unless you are sitting down!
So to summarize, this outfit feels contrived and lacks taste……in other words, it’s insipid! Cheers!
