The pattern on the band collar shirt is nice, but there's something werid about the shoulders. Drop-crotch pants have never looked good to me. The patchwork shorts are nice, and I really like the funky olive coat.
Well, it depends what certain boutiques and stores are willing to stock. That said, tres bien, farfetched, vstore, and shop fatal carry a wide variety of vibskov basics and out there pieces http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2092/...194c6b2f11.jpg
look on the right is pretty sharp with drop crotches looking good imo. There was a pic on the sartorialist from like 2 years ago with some buff guy with a shaved head (i think) wearing those same shorts with just a white tank and he looked really good. Wore the shorts in a really normal way. Obviously vibskov stuff isn't for everyone and isn't going to sway people over from ralph lauren but a lot of the stuff is more wearable than people think if you look at all the various pieces and assemble them in certain ways. A lot of it is similar to CDG Shirt in that quirky artsy casual prep wear
