On the Street in NYC....The New Preppy - Page 2

No - dust on the lens, I should think.

The sneakers don't work, obviously.

Above that, the colors are nice. What seems to be an unconstructed linen jacket is good-looking. But everything is a bit sloppy.

QFT. As I passed a bar the other day on my way home from work, a guy exiting stepped out right in front of me. He had on a white polo under a pink polo, both collars popped. The fact that I repressed my immediate urge to "accidentally" shove him is a testament to my upbringing.

If this guy just dropped the collar and put the laces back in his Chucks, it would work so much better.

No one is bothered by the T-shirt over button-up shirt look?

that's a pretty tight look. Great color combo. Popped collar or not. I'm not so sure that it's a t-shirt rather than a sweater over the polo. They sell Chuck's now without laces. I'm not sure if this guy had regular Chucks and ditched the laces, but many shoe stores now carry the lace-less variety (I'm assuming the shoe is constructed so the shoe doesn't just slip off). Does anyone know where he might have acquired the jacket (or the pants for that matter)? I wouldn't mind picking up something similar.

Right-on my brother. Statements as profound as this should not go unnoticed.

Is it me or your shoes runs way too big; I can see a 1/4" space between the your heel and the spine of the shoes.

My God. There's a photo floating around the web with a guy wearing THREE popped-collar polos. This is getting out of hand - like razor technology.

+1 to having laces and unpopping the collar will make it look better. to me it looks like a sweater over the shirt.
