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?
Cream silk. Deal with it.
AE is already starting to flirt with completely eliminating what "made in america" value that they currently have. I would assume that ME or JAB, would completely destory what is left of that company. The shoes can be a bit fugly, but there's not much else at that pricepoint that has some level of quality, especially with sales.
It's pretty good and for us mac users, waaaayyy better than safari.
Colorwise I think this is great SB, but I wanted someting crunchier for the tie. The texture of the repp seems a little understated for the jacket.
But the magic happens when they don't look contrived.
