dudecore: what i wore.

dude core

I spent all day learning new photo editing techniques! As you can tell, I'm pretty excited.
I've been trying to come up with a little title for these "what i wore" posts, and this was the best I could think of.

I know Iv'e already rambled on about my feelings concerning men's fashion, and in light of that I'd really like to do more style posts. I think that's men's fashion is a much different animal than women's. Women have a lot more options!

I don't care too much about labels, but I am very cautious of the way things fit. As a smaller dude, there aren't a lot of options. Every time I find good vintage, it's wayyy too big and most "sophisticated" retailers don't carry the sizes I need.

In order to find things that fit properly, you'll see me digging through the racks at decidedly teen retailers to find thing that fit appropriately. This outfit is a perfect example of that.

What a coincidence! I was just saying yesterday that I should do a 'what I wore' post. I have the same problem as you, I'm a smaller guy too and have to resort to girls/teen clothes. I often think I should just make my own. It's so good to see I'm not alone.

Reuben :D

I think if it weren't for old navy, i'd never have any good clothes. They carry lots of stuff in my size that fit the way i like and are cute, so i go with it!

I hope plaid never goes out of style, because my wardrobe will be gutted if it does :C

Yay! And there's nothing wrong with wearing "younger" clothes. It's so much cheaper sometimes, I often bop through the girls and pick up some XLs. They fit better a lot of the time.

I like a guy with fitted clothes because it just makes them look more sophisticated. Besides, baggy is way to messy and a turn off! I'm loving the shoes.

I have the opposite problem of being really tall. It's hard to find thrifted clothing to fit. Love your outfit anyways :]
