when you're laying 3 jackets, do you think the jacket on top is a size bigger than the one on the bottom? I dunno how these guys manage to wear so much

Vukmirovic looks better IMO, hardly steroid level.
Looks like he's been neglecting the legs though.

I would say an average "look" in that style wise going to cost £1500 +

Try to make the whole thing for £150 with no brands, then buy expensive single items to up rate the outfit

Even the outfits I wear casually are generally £1000+ if you are talking shoes + coat, but that has taken 3 / 4 years of concentrating on a fixed style to get all the items.

couldn't agree more.

Not really its a pretty average thickness, can see on the open bits how thick it is.

Looks worse, bulking up fair enough but before he was in good shape and didnt need to change too much.

hes gonna look a right tit in a suit with those shoulders.

I wonder if it's more about the money these days than the clothes with Doodle.

What is the point in making a point about wearing £1500+ looks? Besides bragging that you spend a lot on clothes to people on the internet?

Yep.

"An athletic man, or whatever you want to call him, will only look good in a very classic suit, a pair of classic jeans, athletic clothes or simply naked. Forget fashion. This is not going to happen, unless you want to look like a Chippendales dancer in designer clothes.” - Hedi Slimane.

I remember David Gandy on Jonathon Ross saying when he started out he would get turned away for jobs for being too big. Look at him now.

Slim build works best for most clothes, saying a bigger athletic build doesn't work isn't true but will suit less. Its when the body starts getting out of proportion like Vukmirovic above.

I spent nothing last year because there was nothing i needed and I can no longer afford it due to other interests, you are deluded if you think fashion isn't about cash on here, there is barely a poster who doesn't start off with basics, gets insulted, before delving into the deep end, im just saying before anyone burns all their cash maybe see if they like the style first?

I am honest enough to say I cannot afford to buy stupidly priced items anymore.

Way to contradict yourself.

If that's the case, why quote all these prices on fits?

this made me cringe.
"it's supreme so it will look good with whatever" must have been his thought process
