Thanks. I can see why you might think that from the shoddy snap, but they're actually donegal wool trousers with lots of flecks in a shade of blue that's kind of close to RAF but a little darker. I've no particular objection to jacket & jeans combos but I don't think I'd pair the jacket I'm wearing today with them; it's a bit too "flat" in texture. I feel the donegal trousers are just formal enough to work with it, despite the base colours being close, especially given that the whole look was pretty much blues & whites anyway.

Another trick is to use narrow apertures (say f11 and higher) to give more depth of field. But you will need more light for this. Or you can up the ISO. Or decrease the shutter speed. Or get a better fucking camera.



p.s. with all this apparent expertise, I still take shite photos. Go figure.


Haha worst thing is, I took some photography lessons in school and not so long ago, but never tried self portraits. I need to read the owners manual again cause I don't remember how to set up a different f/number. :(

Spent almost 2 weeks in France, visiting Paris, Nice, and many smaller cities/towns/villages in the South of France. We had an amazing time. Here are some photos...

^^^ *Sigh* I miss Paris. You know, they always say Paris has the best food, and it's damn true. Even the lesser restaurants were a cut above what you'd find elsewhere. My favorite was Le Hotel. They have a Michelin star restaurant that is insanely good.

I think this is the last time in this season I can wear this old cotton sports coat from Caruso

Thanks. Your opinion is one that I greatly value. As to the silhouette, you pretty much nailed what we were going for. The goal was to be versatile while not usual. So the styling is very conservative while the cloth has some eccentricity.

Odd choice for the trou, I know, but I was feeling funky. And that this is how I do funky....is sad.
