Objectively speaking, there is one look in that bunch that is good. One that might be good or is maybe just ok. And one that is ok. The remaining seven are poor to worse.

yea there's nothing objective in this post. Except maybe the total count (but I didn't check)

I myself moved entirely away from MC-style casual clothes. I don't want to walk around in a Borrelli cashmere car coat, Cucinelli peach cashmere sweater and handmade-in-Maine boat shoes on weekends. I used to like that but now find it completely depressing.


I completely agree with this. I wear tailored suits etc., and decent quality coats and ties at work - partly because I like wearing well-made clothes that fit and partly because it's an ironic nod to how professors perhaps used to dress but no longer do in general. Outside of work, I don't really wear this stuff and like you I have no interest in looking like an Italian playboy or the heir to a New England fortune. I tend to wear much more SW&D types of things and I do think of things more in terms of 'fashion' labels I know I like and which work for me: so Epaulet, Naked and Famous, Gitman as well as quite a few bits and piece I have picked up in Japan over the years from Beams, Pal'las Palace, Sou-Sou and so on, plus a sprinkling of J-Crew here and there. Sometimes I do mix these things up a bit and experiment. In the past that has been rather too ecclectic, hipsterish and not really successful (see the crappy SW&D fits I posted when I first found this forum) but I am rather more careful now and have got rid of the hodge-podge of inappropriate adn ill-fitting stuff I had in both MC and SW&D modes that I had just because it seemed like a bargain at the time. I don't have the dedication to fashion that people like Fuuma and Parker do, but I do really appreciate it, and I continue to try to learn from the way that they and people like them, put things together, as much as I do from Vox, Manton, EFV, Barims and others on the MC side.

I like these fits, can't say that outside of the boots I would really notice you in the streets on NYC. I don't understand the SW&D shoes, these and the RO high top sneakers but other than that, I'd wear this stuff. Something that needs to be taken into account is that you are a good looking dude that is in shape, those same outfits on a 6'1 120 lb SW&Der would look different in the same way that people here look different in suits from an iammatt or vox.
