You look like you are about to step off the train in Dr. Zhivago. I'd like to see you compliment that with some military inspired or at least rugged pants and boots. They don't have to be combat boots. Some of those more rugged models in the White's thread would look kick ass. Just anything that makes me believe you are ready to tramp through the snow and put a bullet in a liason's back. The stacked raw denim cuffed over those boots is giving me doubts.
Tough love: Usually I think your fits are pretty boring. You have your own style and you seem content with it. It's very consistent. Soft "old man" cardigan over an epaulet shirt with cuffed raw denim and dress shoe/boots. It's really not my thing, but it does give off this very "I can trust this guy" vibe, which is great for a teacher, a friend, a boyfriend, etc. Not everyone needs to look like James Dean. But you've got a window here into what the next level could be if you ever wanted to take a day off from professor trustworthy and be the guy that blows people away.
Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated, sometimes I do need to step out a bit...I'll check out some of the Whites gear...

It's far more irritating to wade through a snobbish discussion about how filthy it is to wear shoes indoors than it is to scroll past benign comments about breeds of cats and how much they shed. Hell, that discussion never even once ventured into the stupid dogs vs. cats debate. Which is pretty impressive given how childish a lot of the users on this message board are.
Walking around someone else's house with no shoes on is a great way to get random bits of food and other debris stuck to your socks, which you will then insert into your boots when put them back on to leave. Foul.
If you get indoor slippers or shoes it seems fine, but that is not how it is done typically in the US except where there is an Asian connection. Here it is usually just: "Welcome to my home, now take off your shoes and step on my kid's cheerios which are all over the floor!"
For some reason I kept imagining him trying to eat that bowl of soup he posted with that scarf wrapped around his face and what a horrible mess that was going to make.
I realize he deserves more credit than to actually try that.
