Funny thing is - I live in a relatively big city - and as much as this aesthetic is hyped on the internet (italian sprzz, etc), I never
ever see any such style IRL. I realize places like NYC and London are difft, but for example, I have never seen anyone wearing any sort of lapel flower in the wild (or creative accessory), I have only seen 2 people here wearing double monks (one of which was a random walk by of an SF member whom I recognized), I may see one PS a day (if that), and anything above and beyond a standard issue brooks' suit is unheard of. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I think it just puts into perspective how most people couldn't care less about the way they look - so seeking out and targeting the audience (like those on SF) who will seek out this aesthetic is a good move on their part.
By the way, the shoes in the OP made me throw up a lil in my mouth.
