Esquire comes to Boston - Page 2

post #16 of 35
As a Bostonian, I'm inclined to blush for my fair city, but with contestants from Virginia and New Jersey, perhaps the shame isn't ours alone. There's certainly plenty to go around.

Sorry, that guy from Atlanta at least showed a bit of flair, even though he was not really original. This dude from Cambridge looks like one of dozens of poorly (and unimaginatively, which is, imo, worse) dressed guys I see on the T all the time (c'mon, tweedblazer, shirt under a sweater all tucked into stonewashed, relaxed fit jeans, and probably wearing Eccos?) Not to mention that it looks like he could really afford to lose a couple of inches around the waist. Of course, the tucked in sweater generally does little to create a slimming effect. Personally, I liked the guy who dressed up like an extra from Mad Max.

The winner is wearing a charcoal and lavendar argyle sweater that I own... It's from Express, and when I bought it, the display had a mannequin wearing it with a lavender shirt underneath with the collar and top button undone. exactly how he is wearing it... how's that for originality?

I wish he would not bite his lip lower lip. Or is this a coping saw accident?

Accidents with coping saws are an inevitable consequence of crossed eyes.

baa hahaha. Thanks for posting this -- I needed a laugh. More importantly, the responses of SF members have, as ever, been moments of comic genius, especially the "seemingly endless series of wedgies". Somebody should send an e-mail to the fashion editor of Esquire with a link to this thread. "funky/urban edge". I ask you.

You don't like my handmade Thai suit?  The white is an ode to the spring and summer; the pinstripes an ode to Savile Row.  The jacket might be cut a little long, but my tailor kept telling me that's what's fashionable now.   I guess I should gain some weight, get some too-tight-in-the-waist jeans, and tuck in an argyle sweater.   How could that guy possibly have won?  He looks like a freaking Banana Republic mannequin.  Either choose someone well dressed, or choose someone creative.  They chose neither.
But then you would sacrifice that perfect waist/hip ratio that has women swooning. Would you really sacrifce that on the altar of sartorial excellence

He tucked the sweater into his jeans. That's gotta count for something. Maybe he is into Fred Astaire.

Women swooning . . . convertible? Women swooning . . . convertible? I guess I'll take the women swooning.

Really makes you appreciate an Armani suit.

Are you kidding me? Makes me appreciate a Naldini suit.

AC, I was there. I was the guy in the white pinstriped "handmade in Thailand" suit. (No, just kidding -- that was Policy).

My cane and pimp chalice were being polished and I felt I wasn't 'presentable' without them.  I believe Rizzo didn't finish JN3's 8 button suit in time. LAGuy, were you practicing your overbite face again?

Or Ralph Lauren. Jon.
