Spoo knows the "rules" well enough to break them consciously and to good effect.
Rule-breaking is fine, the problem is when you don't even know there are "rules" to begin with and you end up looking a hot mess without any clue as to why. Learn the rules, understand the rules, internalize the rules, then break them in a way that makes sense. Crawl, walk, run.
Personally, I didn't like Spoo's fit, but I know it was deliberate and that the man knows, more than I, what he is doing. So more power to him.
Not that this matters to anyone but me but the poster that I couldn't recall before was "Phat Guido". Guy had a real nice sense of style and everything fit perfectly! Haven't seen a post from him in ages.
