Pretty nice from the waist up and then it all comes crashing down.
It's called the Trepanier (tm).

Not exceptionally tasteful (to put it mildly), but the sad thing is that it's actually an improvement from the way so many men on the streets dress.

Yes, he's the one. He usually looks okay.

Really? Suit jacket, not sportscoat?

I don't mind jeans with a sportcoat if it's the right sportcoat, but I can't imagine they're letting RL salespeople wear a suit coat with jeans.

A lot of the rest of it is affected (no socks, those godawful rolled-up pants in that picture you guys keep making my eyes bleed with, the overtight vest, and the uber-spread collar) but I think they mean for you only to take it half so far.

I wonder what people would think of reversing the look; making the top part nasty and the bottom half great:
Maybe a baseball cap, paired with a wife beater, worn above Savile Row bespoke grey flannel chalk striped suit trousers, English clocked silk charcoal socks and John Lobb black captoes?

I saw this guy yesterday... and he does dress exactly like that when walking around town. I was like wtf???? This guy looks like he stepped out of a J.Crew catalog.


Although... to be fair... he is a tall guy and well put together.

I think you're right, and the bottom button may also be unbuttoned.
