Bow tie is really silly, jacket is weirdly geometric, still not sold on the pants flair/fitted top, shoes are terribad.

I think he only gets a pass by some because he's obviously a handsome dude, it helps

bow ties in general or just the one I'm wearing? lol8[1].gif It's either Etro or Charvet I can't remember. Jacket goes with the hair... love/hate so we'll leave it out. But I actually am curious about the shoes. They really are just regular shoes... Sassetti I believe and nothing unusual. Why do you hate them so?

Sorry didn't realize that was actually you KN, thought it was pulled of the #menswear tumblrs, was reading too quickly I guess. Maybe would have been a little less harsh lol

Bow ties rarely ever look un-affected, it's pretty rare and often is an age thing. The shoes have a drab color, an elongated toe and a squared off toe box. Sort of eurotrashy imo

y u jelly tho?

i think that you can break the pieces down and harsh on them, but if you step back and just see it as a whole, i think the fit looks quite cool. and yah, he seems to be a handsome bastard.

crackup[1].gif haha... so now you know it's me you feel a little guilty!! No worries... I'm not offended. I agree with you on all accounts. Like the hair, jacket kinda love it or hate it.... bow ties are I agree somewhat affected for sure. But they've been growing on me....
[as an aside I've taken to wearing them on Wednesdays as my Civ Pro professor (who is actually quite famous) wears a bow tie every day and we do some silly bow tie Wednesday thing in a futile attempt to add levity to Civil Procedure (clearly impossible)]

agree about the shoes... although I'd say borderline Euro trashy... yeah. But I kopped 'em for like $95 and had been wearing them as I didn't have other shoes at home. But on the whole I think it's cool and I just hope others will as well.... respectful disagreement appreciated.


funny pix of my bow tie wearing Civ Pro prof! LOL but the dude is srsly a f'g genius! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's not about the looseness of the pants, it's the silhouette. They're baggy up top and tapered at the hem, while that tumblr image has a delightfully wide hem and I love the way it breaks over the shoes.

Edit: talking about Bene

I also realized I accidentally posted this in the Sales Alert thread for a good 45 minutes.

Ben, I think the proportion is ok with the cropped db jacket and drapey full pants. However, this outfit ages you tremendously and not only because of the glasses. I question in what context would you be wearing this outfit? For someone your age and good physique, this outfit hides all of that. It might be a certain aesthetic you are going for and I have seen some outfits you've worn in the past that shows a good example of this particular aesthetic and this one isn't one of them. I would rather see you in those graphic tees, leather jacket, and jeans that evoke a sexy cholo vibe than this and you really need to add some color in your outfit like something in the red family.

Pants are sagged and hug the thigh a bit but 2% stretch should be good. First pair of corduroy? I like how they feel redface.gif

Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic for men?

I don't mean to insult, but that's the first thought that came to mind. Maybe the pants might look ok as part of suit but in this outfit worn with a sweater, button down, and a printed bow tie, it looks old fashioned. I like the personality that your look evokes with the old fashioned clothing and metrosexual grooming, but it's a little too much with the bling bling watch and earrings. This look also ages you tremendously.

a suggestion, maybe your taste is something in the aesthetic of Bottega Veneta Spring 2013
