    You’re looking at a carefully planned photo of a model taken by a team of professionals. Remember that.
    Poorly fitting clothes are poorly fitting clothes. A well-designed oversized shirt can look good on the right person, but it still was designed to be worn that way.

    I can’t really think of many cases where being "well cut" makes a piece work even in the wrong size.

      this. i have similar build and frame as this model and i’ve been able to recreate this fit with vintage PRL "Big Shirts" and Andrew Pants. It looks great but definitely looks out of place where I live.

    Have we reached peak baggy yet /fashion/? How long before a skinny-jeans-clad generation alpha is making fun of ugly zoomers in their baggy clothes?

        if only. in the jeans thread there’s a bunch of zoomzooms unironically claiming that baggy oversize clothes are "timeless"

        Don’t parachute pants predate zoomers?

        yeah and millennials thought they were cringe, what’s your point?

            t. zoomzoom who thinks whatever is currently being pushed by fast fashion shops for this season is "timeless" and whatever was being pushed by the same shops last season is "flash in the pan trend chasing"

            I’ll take that as a "yes".
            I’m 37 and have seen trends come and go enough to recognize what is trendy and what is timeless. Skinny and baggy are trendy, they are either "in", or "out". Coyboy cut is timeless because while it is never exactly "in", it also never goes out of fashion either since it is practical and looks good. Also if you think wranglers are baggy you need to stop skipping leg day.

        Millennial males wore gigantic baggy ass pants until around 04/05 when the Iraq war and the toughguy boot cut thing got going. Even then a lot still wore relaxed fit. We were still making fun of emos and their girl pants in 08. The skinny pants thing didn’t go mainstream until around the middle of the Obama years.

    As someone with autism, this photo is a great example of what confuses me about fashion. It looks cool in the picture, but I know that if I wore that exact outfit I would look beyond stupid. Why the heck does that happen?

      That doesnt make any sense. Well-cut clothing is well-cut to the size it is intended to be. Intentionally baggy clothing is actually fitted in the collar and tapered in the cuffs (sometimes fitted in the shoulders, sometimes with a drop) , so it looks more put-together than just wearing a bigger size.

      You are not on a boat, you are likely not wealthy, and you might not be low BF.

        I dont think these RL ads were intended to be actual looks a normal person could copy. But its inspirational (and aspirational with the lifestyle stuff). You look at it and try to replicate the vibe with what works for your place in life. Like based on OP’s pic i’d wear the shirt but with different color flat front pants (still high-rise). And maybe swap the tie for a braided belt. Then you have something with a relaxed yet elegant RL vibe without sticking out like a sore thumb.

        AI trash
