Dad jeans + CorthaysIs your Land Rover a 2012 or 2013?
As I understand it, this recent runup was more about the new battery plant.Whether or not that is a good idea, I have no idea but it doesn't seem to be related to the Model S .
Good point. Cropped to eliminate - shirt pocket, belt loop bag, clips and tie schlong (in increasing order of bad). Black and whited to eliminate the classic red-purple color scheme
Do narrow lapels ever look quite right?
No collar stays can be cool but you have to do it right. The collar should be convex.Like so(Armoury)(BNTailor)The collar band is too low on Pliny's shirt and the collar ends up concave.Proper respect for the zero tie space though.

Even when you trade a purely delta 1 product / just trade directionally, the questions you effectively have to answer are incredibly multifaceted.
