You ordered 4 pallets?! Christ, that's a lot of cola.Didn't know they made a cola, and you're right, that's an interesting ingredient list. Luckily wikipedia knows allhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Bull_Cola
I'm late to this party, but that's an undergrad stash of redbull you got there.... think of your heart man, your heart...
Those are mostly disasters. Contrast collar, really? These outfits still need to have some stylistic coherency in a vox sense. Mixing city with country is still dangerous even in this hyper-casual context.We should also add that a matching vest is almost always a trainwreck. ExampleIt blows my mind that this guy was professionally styled for this advertisement. Total fail. Also, he has plenty of "attitude," does not change the fact that the outfit just sucks.
I don't even own a turtleneck.
There always this to buck the dark jeans comments See this, for me, is great, but the tweed lends itself to something akin to outerwear. He's wearing a "jacket" not a "sportcoat"
The made in america flag is a nice touch.I'm still only partly convinced. While I like some of the outfits above, they still scream sartoralist to me. Which is a turnoff.
The third picture above would seem to defy the slim jeans as required for the "staple look."
These are pretty good. The third is my favorite, though a slightly darker jean would be better, imho.I agree with both FM and BB in terms of the basic guidelines, BB's last point on dressing down tailored clothing is probably key. I wonder if this is all internal attitude, when almost everyone is walking around in sneakers and sweatpants at work, throwing on a sportcoat with jeans is now officially ''dressing up.''Maybe this is all attitude and less execution. Could also...
This is always true for anything that might be posted or worn. It seems that this is much much easier to screw up relative to slacks and a sportcoat. The volume of disaster that I recently witnessed just made me rethink the whole thing. Now this was in Nashville and perhaps there is a propensity for orphaned suit coats and bedazzled jeans in this part of the country. Nashville natives care to weigh in?
I used to think the jeans and sportcoat was a good look. Tweed jacket + dark jeans was a staple. Recently, i have lost faith that this can ever actually work (Andy Warhol notwithstanding). So, the question, can the jeans and jacket be redeemed, or has its popularity doomed it to caricature?
