Casual jacket recommendations
Hi everybody, I’m looking for a jacket that goes well with a pair of chinos or jeans. I typically wear sweatshirts and sweaters but I was looking to add a quality (yet affordable) jacket to my wardrobe. Would prefer the jacket to be below $90 but can afford more if it’s the right style. Any suggestions on brand and style would be really appreciated!

Do these blue boots work with this outfit?
I was recently gifted these blue sued boots, but I’m not entirely sure how to wear them. This is a potential outfit I put together last night but I feel like they may be too much in this fit. Any potential outfit ideas or critiques of my outfit idea would be appreciatedhttp://imgur.com/a/0uQnu

[Effort, Long, Meta] Viva la Incendios de Basura Revolución: A case for some moderate changes to MFA

[Effort, Long, Meta] Viva la Incendios de Basura Revolución: A case for some moderate changes to MFA
edit: I cannot stop laughing at how this page renders on mobile Reddit.Reddit has long been a place where someone can discover something exists and post as if they’re an expert 30 seconds later just as convincingly. The fast-moving veil of anonymity which is only a step above 4chan has both enabled the MFA experience and perhaps made it a bit sub-par compared to what it could be. Nothing I’m going to advocate here will be exactly new to most people and a couple have been tried before. I’m not trying to say “THIS MUST HAPPEN FOR MFA TO BE LESS BAD” but I’d like to centralize a discussion about these things since I’ve seen it come up multiple times usually as throwaway small frustration comments from people and maybe a quick response of “we’ve tried that” from mods.WAYWT has a few key problems with it that are readily apparent to anyone who has stuck around for more than a few of them. Common complaints about WAYWT include that photography seems to be more important than fit, well known MFA personalities are upvoted more and more rapidly than newcomers a lot of the time, variation is sometimes shunned if it’s outside the beginner tastes, or that sometimes people can’t stop derailing things to talk about prices. There isn’t really a super elegant solution to deal with these in a definitive way, but one thing that is worth thinking about is that anonymous upvotes from an essentially amateur community are pushing the boundaries of worthless. Even sites like Superfuture, which are notoriously negative and heavy handed with that negativity, lack the anonymity aspect that Reddit has.There is one way that this can be dealt with: currently WAYWT is a race to have the first “good” fit posted within about 20 minutes of the thread going live, and from there there’s far more “I like this!” than critical feedback of any kind. This seems like a poster child of where a timed contest mode would do a world of good. Restricting the first, say, four or five hours of the thread to contest mode would mean for a later start time for posting is possible (since you wouldn’t be contending with vote piling) and outside of a few posters who have well known WAYWT styles or spots, it would serve to anonymize things a bit more. Since upvotes/downvotes are hidden and not responsible for immediately jettisoning popular fits to the top, there’s a greater chance that actually leaving feedback would become more of a thing. This has actually already been observed in the few WAYWTs where contest mode was used, and it was really really good. it also has the added benefit of discouraging /r/all users since the “best” isn’t just pre-sorted to the top for them.FlairAdded onto MFA, I would love to see “talk shit post fit” actually codified in a sense. Having a flair that signifies that a user has participated in WAYWT threads by posting their own fit would be a great and immediate differentiator for new posters coming here. It’s a fairly low-drama way of setting a standard that someone is active in the community to a degree without requiring a heavy-handed process to be considered “consistently quality”. It would also mean that someone offering feedback has at least got enough experience/gusto/whatever to have put themselves out there. Likewise, it could be worth having a separate thing indicating someone has had a top of WAYWT fit, which would basically make posters like /u/esoterrorism look like North Korean Veterans.This is a hopefully elegant solution around the drama that creating a “quality contributor” flair would cause. Tying it all in to fits admittedly ignores posters like me who have a penchant for words over fits, but it also serves as a moderation scheme to prevent consistently quality contributors from being popular shitposters. This is, first and foremost, a fashion forum. Highlighting those who have shown that they have a better than average ability to dress themselves, particularly combined with contest mode. It also prevents some hurt feelings or bruised egos by establishing a near universal standard that is required to be met, even if it does rely on the amateur hivemind to reach that standard.Grailed: Bring on the DramabombRealistically, I think the moderation team should revisit the decision to disallow posting your own links in an appropriate thread. The fact is that many of us have stuff up for sale. The truth is that you’re just as likely (perhaps a bit less) to be ripped off by an MFA poster than you are a general poster. Keeping this weird distance from any kind of personal inventory you have for sale and posting here is unique to MFA, every other major fashion forum has some venue for people to post their own stuff. It’s just as much effort for the mods to allow posting within confined threads (don’t say /r/malefashionmarket, it’s dead and has a different audience) and for mods to say “Drama is not our responsibility, enforcing punishments for scammers is not our responsibility” as it is to ban it in the first place. It’s weird because I know for a fact there are posters here who have things on Grailed I’m personally interested in which I can’t easily find out about. I think maybe it’s time to revisit how obvious it is what we shouldn’t post our own stuff in an appropriate thread.So, yeahI know all of these have come up before on Reddit (except tying quality contributors to top of WAYWT) but I’ve never really seen a dedicated thread with a centralized discussion about them. I’d personally love to see some comments from other people as well as some thoughts from our friendly neighbourhood moderation team. Not a usual [Effort, Long] thread but hopefully some people found this one interesting!

Grey Suits – Inspiration Album

Grey Suits – Inspiration Album
After seeing one too many separate threads asking the question of what to wear with a grey suit, I decided to throw some images together that span seasons and color pairings for grey suits.I tried to do my best to include as many different variations of shades of grey, patterns, solids, and shirt/tie/pocket square combos.Easy shirt go-to’s are white/light blue solids, white/blue stripes, navy sport shirts, and the occasional deeper color stripe or check.Easy tie go-to’s are blue (navy in particular), maroon/burgundy, black (with black shoes!), browns, greens, and gold.Note that about 75% of these images came from B&Tailor, and while the style of suiting may not be the most entry-level, pay attention to the colors – these guys some of the best out there right now.TL;DR – Album

I have a $60 gift card for Banana Republic, which item or items should I get?
I already have a denim jacket, bomber jacket, t shirts, couple henleys, shirts, chinos, and a traveler jean, so that covers a lot and I’m lost as to what to buy.Also is there anything coming in the next few weeks that I should wait for?
