James' recent look is interesting. It's a miss, largely because of the tie, I think, but I like the jacket/trouser combo:

Jacket, tie, and shirt collar are pure '70s.
Pants, which we can't see, should be bell-bottomed
or at least boot-cut to complete the retro look.
Hair also too short.

I find those trousers really cool and fashionable. I like those shoes along with the trouser.

I agree with you. The problem with retro is that if you don't pay attention to details, it looks like playing dress-up. Because of his hair, he looks like he's not really committed to this look and unfortunately, that undermines what are actually some pretty damn cool threads.

Perhaps. Conversely, if you simply recreate a retro look down to the last detail, would that not be more 'costume' than anything else?

However, I do agree that this look is not quite gelling, and even that he doesn't look quite convinced himself that the look is 'all that'. For me, I think it's mostly the tie.

I do wish we could see the rest of the look. I'm wondering what it look like if it was completed with straight cut pants but with some fairly high heeled 70's ish shoooooz. Sort of a 70's inspired take on today's slim pants/big shoes look.

The good thing about mr. james is that you can be certain there will be another interesting look to follow - and each seems to offer an intriquing mix of brilliance and absurdity!

Agreed - the jacket simply isn't working here. It's just the wrong cut.

Unfortunately for this look if you take away the jacket there is nothing about it that hasn't been done better a million times already.

I do like me some tweed. And even though turned up collars are often derided, I sometimes like them. But it's a risky touch that usually only works in the hands of a master.

Hate away, but I love those guys and was glad I ran into them that day.
