Now, this gif always annoys me, because it shows up on my dash with comments like “omg this is the sexiest thing eva” and “men in suits hhhHHH” which is fair enough.
But this gif is a very poor example of a sexily suited man. His jacket is extremely ill fitted, as if it were made for a man four sizes up from him. His tie is crooked, too tight, and mis-lengthened. His shirt’s collar is the wrong size for him, and the way he buttons it makes it look as if he’s never done it before.
Here, ladies and gents, is how it is done.
I’m not sure if it needs saying but if you’re going to correct the original poster, try not to make so many mistakes.
For one, clip-on braces with a suit is a fashion faux-pas.
Two, pants do not look to be sitting at the natural waist, hence why so much slack on the braces when he moves.
Three, what is it with the poofy shirt? You going to dance at the copacabana??
And fourth, the most heinous of your formal crimes, DO NOT BUTTON THE LAST BUTTON ON A SUIT.
This is not an example to follow and your 1mil+ notes are a lie
Guess it’s time to revisit this after over a year of such commentary. For sake of consistency, this is the same suit.
- These are convertible suspenders. I hadn’t had the opportunity to put buttons into those particular trousers before I made the original gifs.
- Hey you’re right. You’re the first, myself included, to notice that. Good eye.
- I stand by this shirt. It’s comfortable and unrestricting, unlike the common “slim fit” breed that cuts off the circulation to your arms if you try to pick something up or hug someone. The collar and sleeves are my size and and that’s all the matters.
- No. This button law that everyone seems to follow without question is a western tradition. Do some travelling outside the reach of British imperialism, or even just some reading, and you’ll find that no such madness is undertaken elsewhere. Buttoning up fully produces a cleaner, tidier look, and doesn’t leave your jacket literally flapping in the breeze (see here).
This is usually the part where people say, “But jackets are designed to keep the bottom button open! It’ll bunch around the button and look dreadful if you do them all up!” to which there is a simple solution; don’t buy suits with jackets that are designed this way. You’ll note that such bunching isn’t occurring, because it’s the first thing I look for when I try on a suit off the rack, and the first thing I specify to a tailor when having one made. There is a V-crease above the top button, but this is due partly to having gained two inches at the chest since the original gifs were made, and partly to raising my arms to button and to cross my hands.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: youtubers are real people. They are not characters on a tv show, they are not fictional. They exist in the real world, have real feelings, and have real lives. Please, treat them accordingly. Stop harassing these people, stop trying to find personal information, and for god’s sakes, when they say to stop doing something, respect them and stop.
YES.YES.YES. People need to realise this
This belongs more on Facebook than it does on tumblr.
i think you’re missing out on some of tumblr then… but it should be on facebook too, it should be on every social media site!
What I mean is that people on tumblr seem better at sympathy and know how to treat others but there’s a lot of homophobic people and swagfags who blame rape victims for what happened to them on Facebook.
Well you probably shouldn’t be friends with them on FB now should you? But yeah, everyone ought to see this, or something similar. Why are we so focussed on just social media?
Wait but hear me out
- ravenclaws that hate studying and procrastinate every assignment
- hufflepuffs that curse like sailors and that look like they could definitely fuck you up if they wanted to
- slytherin that are really nice and sweet who constantly ask how your days going and if you need help with something
- gryffindor that are scared to kill the spider in the corner of their rooms because who knows if that shit can fly or if it’ll attack you
Dear parents of LGBT+ young people:
You should be less worried about your offspring being influenced into their LGBT+ identities by people they met online, and more worried about the fact that they go online to meet people that will give them the acceptance and support that you haven’t.
This needs more notes

"The federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act defines the crime of human trafficking as:
A. The recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for the purpose of a commercial sex act where such an act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age, or

… [P]ersons are trafficked into the international sex trade, often by force, fraud, or coercion. The sex industry has rapidly expanded over the past several decades. It involves sexual exploitation of persons, predominantly women and girls, involving activities related to prostitution, pornography, sex tourism, and other commercial sexual services. The low status of women in many parts of the world has contributed to a burgeoning of the trafficking industry. -

THAT IS RAPE
We need to be talking about this and we need to be making sex work safe. No one should be made to feel like this treatment is okay.
