Wore the same a couple of weeks ago, but in better company... Sorry for the crappy iPhone pic, but this one's not about my outfit anyway:
I understand that most people here have a fairly developed sense of style. Along with that comes a fairly long list of pet peeves. I for one dislike pointy toed shoes. Despite that, I do occasionally see people who make them look good. They are few and far between, but they do exist. I may be wrong, but I get the impression that some of you feel that no one could ever pull off your pet peeves. If I'm wrong, we may want to consideration those exceptions and what in particular makes them acceptable. I have no intention of ever buying a pair of pointy toed shoes, but I'd like to be able to articulate why I don't like them and how I feel one could wear them well. Again, I'd love to see a sockless challenge, a baseball hat challenge, a tie and no jacket challenge, etc. I would love to see how everyone performs in the face of their pet peeves.
There are absolutely no limits with sports teams. At least not while you're at the match. Screaming and cursing at the men in the wrong coloured shirts along with a few tens of thousands of other people, is an exhilarating and civilised release. It's an outlet for the base, barbaric, tribal instincts that we hide under our Egyptian cotton undershirts (or should do). Let it out on a Saturday afternoon for the contrived and nebulous purpose of organised games, and no war is necessary. Then once out of the gates, we can treat everyone with respect - even if they support Chelsea.
As for suited socklessness, rolled up jacket sleeves, baseball caps and cargo pants with a tie, well, what is an internet forum for, if not to release one's most strident prejudices unedited without the risk of offending actual people?
P.S. I accidentally "thumbed" T for his overall look before realising he was wearing denim.
Wearing a jacket will increase your confidence and poise while you write. Good luck! :)
I like your shoes, Crusty - wet weather specials or not.
It's absolutely steaming here; hot and humid. So I...er...dropped the waistcoat.
