That is a blasphemous statement where I come from 501's are the original workwear, cowboy, motorcycle rider, college student, radical hippie, lawn mowing suburban dad, millionaire, migrant farm worker and dude ranch wear. Sure, Levi's had a few rather peculiar " mom cuts" and finishes in the 70's and early 80's (as did every denim brand) but the classic 501XX has pretty much retained it's original DNA of cool, masculine and practical style. If that wasn't the case, why...
Looks good!My only suggestion is that I would not cuff my jeans with a tailored jacket as it makes the jeans look look a bit more workwear and less sportswear. But, hey, if you like it then cuff away!

Sure, just have a significant difference between the shades.
You two look great. I like that the photos capture a bit more of your personality than a typical WAYWT pic. Very nice!
This is an attractive color alternative to solid checks. Very nice!
This^^^^^^Or, at least MTM orders in Long sizing at trunk shows for the brand. They sure have tasteful and cool looking apparel. I'd love to be able to wear their more casual Spring/Summer suits and shirts. That white seersucker banded collar shirt this last year was so perfect, but too small for me. (I'm sure too short in the arms for you too, Greg?)In general, I'm looking for more casual options to typical tailored sport coats and suits. For Fall/WInter I'm wearing a...
