most of the pieces in aether's fit are nice, but together they're incongruous imo. hat is dumb, structured tweed jacket doesn't go with cargo pants (sorry gq) and the sleek boots don't go with the rugged cargoes or with the tweed jacket (sorry styleforum but mmm boots don't necessarily look good with EVERYTHING).
I dig that aether fit. Earth tones are great. Hat looks strangely unaffected. Jacket looks dated, but in a way that suggests he's been wearing those clothes for years rather than "i found myself in the wrong corner of a thrift shop." It's like if Nick Wooster and Matt Drudge had sex and yet it somehow looks good.
Just got power and heat back yesterday! Good luck to everyone still coping.
I'm in the minority on this, but the proportions on this SS coat have never looked quite right. The long alpaca coat from the Frozen Waves collection is on my shortlist of grail items. Part of the appeal for me was how the voluminous nature and distinctive way part of the interior is visible was complimented by the longer body. The cropped version looks off to me because you have those features, but then there's the sharp contrast caused by the much shorter body, which is accentuated when the coat is buttoned up.
