The black leather Givenchy kilt command around $2000+ i'm not that crazy rich to splurge on it. PlusI can't imagine myself sitting on a $2000+ kilt. LOL

To tell you the truth I'm not very good at styling myself in satorialist or dapper way. I've decided to post my outfit because I just like to share my own sense of style.

Imo Fashion Forward is pushing the limit of fashion to the extreme and Riccardo Tisci definitely do this for Givenchy very well. I do have few suits and blazer in my wardrobe from H&M to Burberry but I won't wear that for Sunday shopping. I work as a nurse so basically 5-6 days a week I'm in my scrub suit so it be silly for my life style to invest on blazer and jacket or suits. Also because of the nature of my work I much preffered to play and have fun of my clothing than confined myself to another satorialist look. Call it ego, confidence or just plain crazy but life is too short to pleased everyone just F**K IT and ROCK IT right hahahaha

I think you are looking into it too deeply, it's just people's opinions. I've had people tell me my pocket square sticks out too much, it's really not a personal attack against you or a criticism as such, it's just people's opinion and nothing more! You can wear what you like, that's the great thing about fashion.

Round where I live this is what dudes wear to the shops to buy a pint of milk keep doing what you do bro, it's different to the norm but who cares.
Also important for others to remember that because there's been a slight development of 'norm' on this forum that it's still pretty easy to experiment and look great with the clothes you have in your wardrobe/on the high street.

I'm actually laughing while reading few comments because really I did not expect stir any discussion. What I state above is just about my concept of my personal style. I really value and respect everyones opinions. If I came across like defending myself my sincere apologies there is no way I feel attacked.

To think of it I am also a die hard fans of Nicholas Ghesquiere while he is in Balenciaga and Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane.
I like premium designer stuff hehehe that could be consider good and bad hahaha

Not trying to be harsh but it's not really "your" personal style is it? It's basically just throwing on a load of Givenchy. It's definitely flamboyant, but there's nothing unique or personal about dressing like a Givenchy mannequin.
It's one of the most recognisable aesthetics in fashion at the moment, and in all honesty I think it's something that even the boldest Tisci aficionados would concede has definitely peaked quite a while ago now.
I respect that you're doing your thing and appreciate something a little different being posted on the forum, but I can't help feeling that this look is a bit cliched now and lacks substance. It's just not aesthetically pleasing with that skirt and I also don't see how it's pushing any boundaries by this point, so what's left over is pretty unappealing to me.
I hope you didn't buy it all! Givenchy is so overpriced. Premium designer money could be spent so much better than this.

It's a bit too StyleForum for me.

Shoes: Converse All Stars
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelets: some River Island & some Asos

Looks good Robert, simple but classic.
Back to the hot topic briefly - this forum (and the main FB website) are focused on style as opposed to fashion. That's the reason for the reaction, but as I said before if that IS your style then power to you. On another note, t-shirts with scantily clad birds on them are ten a penny in the UK these days and are a total style faux pas. If that's the style you want to rock, shelling out on Givenchy maybe isn't the best way to go.
