Help a guy starting over with some dressier combinations?
I’ve lost about 90 pounds over the past 18 months or so and, as you can imagine, nothing I own fits anymore. I’m very close to my target weight so I’ve been rebuilding my wardrobe slowly. Now that I look at it all put together in this album I’m realizing just how stuffy looking this all looks compared to what you guys post. Oh well. I’m here for help, after all.The clothes here are pretty much the only things I own that fit these days other than a couple pairs of jeans, chinos, and some jackets. When I visit a client I usually wear the more casual pants and one of the shirts pictured. Occasionally I’ll throw on one of of the sport coats as the mood strikes me. The red shoes are new, an impulse buy. I can’t imagine anyone would buy these not on impulse but there you have it. I have no idea what to pair them with.I tried very hard to purchase shirts, pants, and coats that fit well and are compatible with each other.I’d appreciate some feedback and I’ll try hard to take it constructively. I’m still not very comfortable in my skin due to the weight loss and from the looks of these pics I still have a little ways to go. I also know by the standards of this subreddit my choices seem a bit old and “safe”, I guess? I’m open to improving that. Ugh… I feel so lost.In particular I’m hoping you guys can suggest a combination that will work well for a work party next week. I work from home so I only see these folks once a year and I’d like to impress. :)https://imgur.com/a/6K2AC

Media Discussions Announcement: 12/7 Quentin Tarantino

Media Discussions Announcement: 12/7 Quentin Tarantino
Next week, we’ll be discussing Quentin Tarantino and his movies. I don’t think I need to introduce Quentin Tarantino. The majority of us are familiar with his wide range of work, from Reservoir Dogs to Pulp Fiction to Django Unchained. We tend to focus on the sharp dialogue and the explosions of stylized violence and the memorable characters that populate his world. Tarantino’s love of movies is apparent in every one he directs, each paying homage to a genre of cinema, from grindhouse movies to westerns to martial arts revenge movies, and so on. We can really go on and on about any one of his movies and look at how he takes those influences and re-interprets them into his own distinct style, but I’ll save that for next week when the discussion goes up.One particular movie I’d like to focus on is Reservoir Dogs. This image of the characters walking in their black suits has become iconic, but as plenty of articles have noted, it was more chance than deliberate. With the limited budget of the film, only two of the suits are actually suits– the rest are black or navy jackets with black jeans. And yet somehow the skinny black suit began to define a whole decade of style and menswear. Intentional or not, Tarantino and his costume designer Betsy Heimann had a surprisingly large amount of influence on fashion with that simple image.Which brings me to a point I find interesting. Directors and their costume designers don’t intend to influence the world of fashion, generally speaking; they just want to create a visual style that compliments the rest of their movie. But viewers can latch onto certain scenes and outfits and re-interpret them and those influences, and what may have been unintentional at first can be sharpened and refined over time, by both designers and casual viewers like us. A scene filled with cheap suits can become a panel in a manga, which can become the intro image to a pretty fantastic inspiration album(credit to /u/setfiretoflames).The discussion goes up next week. Which Tarantino movies are you looking forward to discussing? What do you think others should look out for. Leave any feedback or comments below. We’ll only have one more movie discussion this year after this, and I’ll open up for more suggestions on how to improve these discussions and movies to add soon after that.
