I'm sorry, I still don't think that flies. Post it once and it's wrong, post it a hundred times and it's just your style? No. I still don't like SS's wearing a suit with no socks because I think it looks like he trod in something on teh way to work and his drying them off in the men's room. But he also wears some super cool stuff and I admire his individuality. Some of Tirailleur's stuff certainly isn't classic, and I'm not entirely sure all of it is menswear, but he's cool. Liking the individual, and even some elements of their style, doesn't mean you can't point to the emperor's new shiny clothes now and then. Hell, SB or PB will never accept coloured socks, or tire of reminding me, and I'm not accusing them of "hating".
So I get where you're coming from that over time, we just get used to certain people's individuality and stop going on about this or that. People with strong individual styles like Tirailleur and TTO, for example, with their Tumblrs and blogs and whatnot, are dressing very deliberately that way - deliberately stamping an image designed to get noticed, and even promote a product. I guess LK can fall into that category too.
But at the same time, some things are just nasty. I think TTO is inspirational. But if he wore a tight shiny suit and no tie I'd call him on that too. It's not because these things aren't in the traditional template - T's funny hats, Derek's nerd pocket squares and whatnot aren't either. Individual flourishes are what make it all interesting, and a light-hearted idiosyncracy or consciously obnoxious flourish are totally welcome. But when something is generally considered beyond the pale for one, it's only reasonable to call it for another. Or if not, then be a bit kinder to first timers who've seen such things all the time, and can't understand why everyone's being so rude.
In conclusion: LK's back. "Fuck yeah", to quote DS. Tight silver suit, stripey shirt and no tie? Fuck no, from me anyway.
Peace and love to all men.
