thanks for nothin, man.
spoo - lovely.
HC - great fit.
Kappelan, please don't start doing this #menswear thing again... You've got some great clothes, but this is two completely different halves that just clash in a bad way. The cargo pants really do not go with the rest, and not just because they are cargo pants, because of the fabric too. Someone once asked me why I wanted to ruin an outfit by wearing hobo pants - and those were just moleskins. Those cargos are worse and just do not work with a smart jacket and tie. You might possibly get away with a rougher-textured jacker and a knit tie, but even then... no.
It really isn't just him, it's the kind of thing you see on blogs all over the place: it's a kind of cliché of edginess. And it's only partly about intent and partly about outcome: see the debate about Leftofthedial's trousers recently, where you'll finding me making exactly the point you've just made but in that case, the outcome was a successful example of what it was trying to achieve, whereas this isn't, as I have noted, not just because they are cargos - conceivably cargos could work in this context - but because of the difference in the quality of the materials and textures between the top and bottom halves. This is nothing personal against Kappelan - he seems like a great guy and I like a lot of the things he does, just not all (the New Balances were also one of those things, another #menswear blogger's standby...).
