basic dude-fit today.
Yeah, brown cord is very American collegiate. I think it's best to just embrace that vibe. Just have something else cool going on, e.g. Wes Anderson hair or bare feet. :-)

This isn't meant to compete with all the individual designer threads, just a place for more practical...
I think he's always been fairly conservative. To me he's always done some kind of deconstructed take on 30s-style "classic" tailoring.
