So I've layered my outfit - leather for the ride, neat casual (with a touch of eccentricity) for my arrival.

Dont really know what to make of this. On one hand I like the way the jacket/shirt/jeans/shoes work togther, but the tie and sweater feel very much out of place. On the other hand, I get that practicality overrides things if you're on a bike because of the need for some protection up top but don't want to be dressed that way under the jacket. Meh. Part of the reason i don't do bikes, actually.

 

 

 

Anyway, some flouncy stuff...

Preposterous, HF.  Only you...you do push, and frequently straddle, the boundaries of taste in here.  Which is a good thing; would be terribly dull otherwise.  But I think I just had an epiphany about your style: it's always the shirts.  The one thing that, if you took away the bold stripe or check or leopard print or whatever and replaced it with something cleaner, makes the difference frequently between "edgy" and "mmm...not for me".  Me, I do like my coloured socks, and many don't.   You, for all your mad ties and purple overchecks, can't resist just adding a stripey shirt.  :)

 

As for Coxie's outrage above, it's the addition of a tie that makes no sense: flying jacket, sweater, oiled (no need for some bikes!) boots and the-French-overalls-cloth-that-must-not-be-named, are all standard bike wear. I feel about the addition of a tie the same way I do about cargo pants with a tweed jacket.  Fucking NO.

 

Not that I feel strongly about it(!)  Actually, a few years back I used to ride to work, and wore my dress shirt and tie with a bike jacket, armoured cargo pants and bike boots.  I'd then change into one of the suits and shoes that I'd leave in the office.  These days, I no longer have a bike.  Which is for the best, as I now have far too many shoes alone to keep in the office.

DC, I'm not an expert in this area, but I'm pretty sure those don't get tucked into the socks like that.

Wherein I commit the venial (mortal?) sin of wearing a solid-colored silk hank.

Yes; it would appear, DC, that you are trying to create the illusion of breeches/kinckerbockers? These button tightly below the knee.  A tall stocking would be worn underneath, as with regular trousers.  Fun fact, the short, padded pants, and tall sock worn by hockey players evolved from breeches and socks.

Just for fun.
