I don't get it. Pretty nice from the waist up and then it all comes crashing down.
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.
