Basically, I'm really sorry not to be able to be more positive, but as an outfit, this is messy and incoherent.

For people like PB the mid-thigh overcoat is anathema but for those who have seen a Skyfall ad it is awesome.

I've actually seen the movie, too. more memorable to me were javier bardems outfits, though.


still no clue what patrick booth has to do with this...

"See, I toldja. Sveltitude! Much better pose this way."


through some crafty maneuvering i was able to deceive the eye, and create the illusion of some sveltitude. i hope i can replicate it.

which pose was more svelte would you say?

personally, i have always liked the, "sunglasses in chest pocket used as an accessory" look.
Agreed. I have done the same thing with my own.

I'm just a bit surprised, given his previously stated position on sunglasses. If he posts beach vacation pics this year wearing Sweet Classics instead of shell heads...

Some detail shots of today's outfit:

Alright, well, I'm one of the few people that likes shirt and tie without a jacket, so I won't give you flak about that, though others probably will. If you are going with that look, you need to make sure you have a fitted shirt (the shirt seems to be billowing a bit at the belt line). The tie needs to go perfectly with the shirt, as you won't have a jacket to pull attention away from it. In this case, your tie is lighter than your shirt, something which is generally a pretty big faux pas. Your pants also need to be very nice (again, no jacket to distract); in this case, it seems like you are wearing old pleated khakis. And your belt looks like it has seen better days.


Black shirts are fine at night, but will rarely look good with a tie.


Avoid pleats (unless you need the extra room)


Lurk around to get a better feel for tie-shirt combinations


Dimple your tie.


New pants, new belt


Keep the Stitchy beard...we need more beards.

How so? The color in the picture isn't really that great, but the pants are a light brown, which I think contrasts the darkness of the black shirt pretty nicely. Same thing for the big white and grey stripes on the tie. Being a large guy, I like dark outfits, they make a few extra pounds go away and gives you(at least where I work) an extra ounce(or two) of authority.
