HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part II - Page 2069  

post #31021 of 37075
"Banka-Gangsta"? That is one of the most amusingly complimentary things that I've heard said to me - ironic, as I am the last person on earth to be a gangsta, as such, but I get your meaing.

As for my "look", it's simply what I choose to wear on a given day, given the very wide latitude of attire that my current job affords me (a business casual office, and I'm in IT). It's much weirder for the general office aesthetic for anyone to be suited up than not, and as the office eccentric, I have some considerable license to wear whatever I want, hence the excesses that I post in this thread on a semi-regular basis.

Glad that you like it, in any case.

Banka because there's something classical and very conservative to the whole ensemble, gangsta because there's a subtle edge, a certain something that's just outrageous enough to give you a slight air of menace. Maybe it's the ring. Don't know.

But well done.

Picked another suit. Hope this one fits better.
Shoes are still the same ... Maybe I will buy some new this week.

Please tell me what you like or not.

I try to come up with an appropriate name for those that look at the direct link. And, yes, we share the same attitude regarding this SC.

This angle is much more flattering. The "Keg-Leg" effect is gone. Stick with this!

You really do go balls to the wall every day, don't you. I applaud your effort.

LOL, I actually think they look good too. Without the weight of the cuff, they realy need to be spot on with the break. My Navy three piece suit is cuffless, went more for a sleek, British look.

I think the digitial camo (the military's new gray urban camo) version would be very SW&D-approved.

YUP, kids were wearing them in all sorts of colors as TB said, about 2 years ago. It was chic for the boys to give theirs to their gf, and the kids (unfortunately) who were either in gangs, or emulated them, wore those colors. I particularly remember a 17 year old 8th grader I had who llived in his black and gold one. He was one tough cookie who had a rough upbringing.

Yeah, that was quite a pour. Made my treck over the longest concrete turd in the world such a joy.

Today's fit is by request. SO wanted teh velvet. This is actually one of the few pre-SF purchases I still have. It is too long, unfortunately. Still, sometimes you gotta take one for the team.

I don't think this is too long - I think the extra length actually balances your broad chest and shoulders quite well.

I have no cred here, yet, but I like the fit too. Deets on the trousers?

Thanks. Not super-long, but I would like about a half an inch shorter.

Thanks.

They are a wool mini-houndstooth that I picked up from TJMaxx. They are super soft and were super-cheap. I think they are Geoffrey Beene, IIRC.
