i think the problem for me is nothing looks authentic. he doesn't dress like that normally. thats his wannabe-stylish-so-i'm-gonna-go-do-everything-Cargo-magazine-tells-me-to-do-look. its too perfectly distressed in all the usual places. someone dressed him

. . . and thats not a shot at Cargo. i enjoy it from time to time.

Yeah, I don't think it's so much the basic elements that are problematic (blazer, tshirt, jeans, sneakers) so much as it is that nothing really holds the outfit together, and no sense of an overall guiding aesthetic. The colors don't really complement each other, the silhouette is nothing special, the textures are mostly uninteresting, etc. The basic elements could be done differently and it'd be an incredibly sharp look; I mean, I'm pretty sure there are at least some of us here have gone apeshit over the skinny-jeans, german military sneakers, vneck tshirt, super-slim-cut/peaked lapel/high armhole blazer look that Dior Homme and a million other labels have pushed for a while.

I have a tan corduroy blazer that I wear with jeans, but I pair it with the right shoes and sweater / shirt / long polo that make the entire look work. This however is utter trash.

And that makes all the difference. I have a cord blazer in almost exactly the same shade of brown as in the pic, though it's a wider wale corduroy than that one, and I frequently wear it with jeans. I like to think I pull it off, though who knows. But yeah, I agree, I don't like the outfit in the picture at all.

I hate everything that the girl is wearing. That dress is for grandmas. Shoes and purse, way lame.

The dude: Anyone notice how freakishly wide those lapels are? Did his stylist go back in time to the 1960s to buy that sportcoat? The only redeeming thing about his outfit is that the Chucks are genuinely dirty.

It's just a 70s-style blazer. May be vintage or not.. Some designers, i.e. Yoko Devereaux are doing blazers in this vein.

Judging by what the girl's wearing, it looks like he's severely underdressed. Also, I really hate light jeans for "going out" wear.

Like the shirt though.

Doesn't make them any less ugly.
