Agreed. Just enjoy things for what they are.

Yeah, I've been clicking over to this blog for a while now. I really like that it is not cluttered up with idiots like us commenting on each picture. For those who think everything is an overly stylized studio shot, take a look at some of the great photos of Hemingway, JFK or Kurt Vonnegut.

I've been following the blog for a while as well, but it's always nice to take a second look. Both are just fantastic.

I can't argue with a hat of that magnitude.

If there hadn't been a thread about this, I'd started one. The one thing you can learn from almost every pic: with enough swagger you can pull almost everything off. grampa jeans: sunglasses in hair, shirt open everywhere, shitty quality boots (hell, that's three things SF would so jump at): low V-neck without looking ridiculous or douchy (esp. for MC users): sunglasses inside (at night?): a fugly nose: I could go on and on... Biggest danger: thinking you yourself were that cool and could pull all that off.

Still, most people on the blog we give a pass for being great looking. For the rest, because of their achievements. Sometimes both.

Yep great blog indeed.

Some of the people on there really need more than their surname to be identifiable.

A cool take on this type of thing is http://nerdboyfriend.com/

By the way, I don't think even Clark Gable pulls off the grandpa jeans.

Yeah, wasn't sure about that as well. Still was too great not to post.

Some of the more obscure people have a link connected to their name that leads to a Wikipedia page etc.. etc..

There's something about 'grandpa' jeans which makes them more appealing to me than more contemporary, fashionable jeans. I'd rather wear them than very low rise.
