Commonly seen with spikey hair held up with glue-like substance, along with a too cool for school attitude. Oh, a fake tan as well. They're not as prevalent now as a year or two ago, but the repulsiveness is still there nevertheless.

I see nothing wrong with this, though I generally button the middle only on my 3-button suits. It's the last button fastened that makes me cringe.

Nothing wrong per se here; at least an effort is being made. 95% of men do not know the virtues of a leather soled shoe, nor do they know what a leather soled shoe is. Perhaps you should educate them on such matters?

Point one:
I sweat like a beast when I work out, but my t-shirt (which isn't too tight, nor too voluminous) doesn't restrict my movement. I don't want to see your hairy armpit, or get an unfiltered whiff of your stench when you are doing your flies. There was a men's player sporting your look at the US Open this past week, and he looked like a vulgarian.

Point two:
I think of this top two buttons fastened suiting as the Men's Warehouse look, or the "this is what the guy at (department store name of your choosing) told me Everyone is wearing these days.

I agree with you that all of the buttons buttoned makes a guy look like he is going to his first communion.

Point three:
Lastly, that whole Kenneth Cole, Ecco, even Cole Haan has gotten in on this, I don't think this is making an effort for fashionable dressing. I see these guys on the shuttle at the airport, and I bet they put on these rubber soled shoes and think to themselves "These aren't too far off from my Nikes!" Shoes should be comfortable, but most guys think if that new leather sole isn't flexible the second they put their foot in it, it never will be. They are wrong.

The only time I can say yes to a rubber soled dress shoe, is when the weather is very rainy or the streets are covered in slush. I have a pair of Alden Cape Cods for those days. I can't make myself wear rubber overshoes.

Well, I can't afford AE retail, so I suppose I don't make an effort in my 3pc, 2B SB non-Barney's KFS, Talbott shirt and Lanvin tie. Damn.

Don't make this into a class warfare issue. That isn't my point. You lost me at KFS.

So what is the shoe with the above ensemble?
post #22 of 64
The partially tied tie look.
and i hope the rolling up sport jacket sleeves ala Miami Vice doesn't come back in full force.

But i saw the worst the other day -really skinny leg jeans but with the baggy but crack back end. I think the intention was a kind of wasted punk rock look, but the droopy ass fit was just horrid.

1.\tAmjack\t

Short for an American Jackass!

Term used to describe low intelligence and educaion, poor upbringing and manners, and poor taste in manners of dress. Very similar to white trash. Typically has a poor undergraduate look comprised of a baseball/farm cap, ratty t shirt, and cheap tennis shoes often associated with poor hygiene, foul/coarse language, uncultured/crude, and social inept. A poor example of human evolution. Social denegerate. Usually highly stupid and offending.

"He looks like an Amjack"
"He acts like an Amjack"
"He talks like an Amjack"
"He smells like an Amjack"

Enjoys the lowest levels of human experience, ie. wrestling, espn 2, nascar, bleching, farting, Basic Instinct 2, log rolling, incest possible, fly fishing, watch Deliverance for success tip on life, driving pick ups, hog tieing, beer drinking, chewing tobacco professionallly, collecting beer cans,

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=AmJack

I must diasgree however with the fly fishing and beer drinking reference;-)

Cheers

Scott

This list should also include monster trucks and ghost riding.

as young guys eating at the expensive steakhouses, all the while wearing ball caps and smoking cigars. The gist was the Jackasses followed a trend and indulged in the highlife without really having the knowledge to appreciate good food, good wine, or a good cigar. Their mere presence mucks it up for the true cognoscenti.

Roseanne Barr labeled herself as your worst nightmare - a redneck with money.

Boorish behavior is the common thread that belies the AmJack.

I won't pick on the bumpkin who thinks the Cracker Barrell is fine dining. The recent college grad who is now making over $100K a year and thinks fine dining is a $50 steak and a $300 bottle of whatever costs $300 deserves the derision of being labelled a Jackass.

On behalf of bumpkins everywhere, I thank you for your restraint and pray that your mercy does not go unnoticed in Classy People's Heaven.
