I like the last one, but I'm a sucker for the windowpane.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.  As it happens, it is my least favorite, and my least worn sports jacket.

Give it three more months here and it will be your favourite.  But it deserves a tie and PS. :)

I have been following SF for over a year, so I doubt that.  It's Saturday afternoon, so no accessories.  Thanks again though for commenting.

I hope the above didn't come off as being snarky. I have a fairly well developed sense already of what I like and dislike, and appreciate again your commenting.

Those aren't dad jeans. Dad jeans are stone washed and high rise.

Grandma jeans are pleated.

Definitely. AAS is one of the best new posters we've had in a while, and his last several fits have been quite good, but this one is a miss, mostly because of the jeans. You're right... I can't square them no matter how I look at them.

Everyone has misses, AAS, please don't take it the wrong way or think that everyone is jumping down your throat.

GD, just kidding.  But there's no law against ties or PS on Saturdays either; after all, we're all eccentric in the eyes of the masses anyway...

 

Cantab: that's brutal.  But I can't help agreeing...especially if they're also stretchy!

I'm horrible at this but this seems like a very good example of tie - pocketsquare pairing.

In the late 1980's and early 1990's, the wide shouldered and pleated / tapered pants look was all the rage. It started in suits and men's dress pants and migrated to jeans and women's pants (combined wide, over-stuffed shoulder pads on low button stance DB jackets). Soon the trend mixed with the urban styles of that era and hit its zenith of awfulness with horrors like this:

 

But if it just ended there, it wouldn't be so bad. The second act, that has left pleats fending for their existence, was when the pleated baggy "relaxed fit" pants and jeans hit the Walmart clearance rack. At that point middle-american mom & dad found out that these acid washed pleated horrors were also very comfortable for those with expanding waistlines and backsides. Long after the kids had decided these things were passé, mom kept right on wearing them. As you yourself pointed out, they have become known as mom jeans for this reason.

 

They are bad because they are unflattering (especially for someone as thin as yourself). The "comfort" tapered shape makes for an unnatural hip flare and baggy mess in front. They look dated, not vintage, much the way tacky 70's plaids and bell bottoms look dated.

 

 

Just because something is old, doesn't mean it's good.

Three patterns today.  I tried to fit a patterned pocket square, but decided against it.
