You sir, have Style. Decidedly lacking from many of the gents here who, while very well-dressed, are, respectfully, rather cookie-cutter.

I enjoyed your blog entry and will follow it more often. Your thoughts about the great find of a vintage 1980's letterman made me smile and feel old. And the piece you found and are modeling is delightful.

Nicely done.

But that would very much miss the vintage connection.

I absolutely agree with the assertion that JKissi has style ... after all he is Ghanaian ... lol.

Now about the cookie-cutter part - you do realize a lot of posters here work in professions that require some sort of "uniform". I doubt JKissi would be dressed the way he is if he had a day in a court, a board room or a hospital. His career gives him the liberty to dress the way he does - that others do not have. I for one try to push the envelope as much as possible on corporate wear, but there is definitely a fine line that can't/shouldnt be crossed.

Also, i do agree the socks connects with the jacket ... it pulls everything together very nicely.

I have no idea why that comment was made, but I didn't appreciate it.

It offends me in this derogatory context, but I appreciate that someone felt the need to make a profile here on SF just to make an obscure offensive comment toward me. That sort of effort requires a response.

Heh, my nitpicking on Vox's suit was clearly in jest, referring to two threads that were near the top... 's thread about one of his shirt sleeves chronically riding up into his jacket, and the other about the ticket pocket "fad." One thing about it, though... I thought I spied a faint burnt orange windowpane in the first shot, but I suspected it may have been my mind playing tricks because of the bricks in the background. Then I couldn't really see any windowpane in the second shot in your office (?). Then the third closeup shot you provided to really show off the windowpane doesn't even look like the same jacket to me. Is it the flash or something?

KtownGreg, love that bowtie. Is it wool? Looks awesome for a dreary/cold day.

TC, nice 3-piece. I usually don't like the contrast collar shirts, but that one goes well with the rest of it. Sweet.

That's all kinds of awesome. No clue how you can ride a bike in those conditions though!

I concur, completely, Niidawg. I simply posit that there is a difference between impeccably dressed and a strong personal style. This is not to understate the value of the prior, but to point out that, in my opinion, style, in this sense, is a step beyond simply being buttoned up (down? )

Additionally, it is not about "pushing the envelope". It's about the totalty of elements, of the whole being greater than the sum.
Not to start another discussion on sprezz... but this is certainly a case of "knowing it when you see it".

Finally, JKissi's photography plays a role. He and Phatguido have very good eyes for composition (to state the obvious).
