Er, no. I don't remember typing the word "pirate". That would be your word, Pliny.

 

Dressing like a rock star could conceivably be "classic style" though. After all, that style of menswear has been around for over sixty years now. The Beatles and the Stones were very sharply coutured during the early 60s. Carnaby Street style in the mid to late 60s borrowed heavily from classic influences across several eras.

 

Whether one accepts this possibility would depend on one's inherent degree of conservatism. Rock star style (and of course I am not referring to the excesses of hippydom/psychedelia/glam here) involves mixing influences, which militates against stylistic cohesion, but does open up new aesthetic doors. This has always gone on - think of 19th-century dandyism, or gangster style from the 20s, which involved a similar mix-up and exaggeration of styles, designed to catch the eye and make an extroverted statement.

 

My guess is that Shoe Artist is well aware of the stylistic influences he is mixing together. I don't think his fits are happening by accident. I'll concede though, that it's risky and difficult to carry off.

@Cox--  Not saying it's not a valid style, and not making a value judgement.  But that look can't be found in AA, or Esquire, or Flusser or Boyer etc.  and it's certainly not within the norms, to date, of this thread.  There is a 'Peacock' Thread./  It'd fit rite in there.

I think butler's jeans fit was sadly a miss for me.

Pliny, were you referring to Shoe Artist's first two fits? 

 

I'm curious to know what you make of his most recent one, with the three-piece suit.

Thanks for all your encouragements it's take me time to find my own style.

For today Easter sunday in family I'm wearing something more classical.

 

 

I suddenly realised who you remind me of, Shoe artist: :)

 

 

(For the non-cyclists: this is Bradley Wiggins, erstwhile winner of the Tour de France)

And Bradley Wiggins reminds me of Paul Weller, the Modfather

post #75941 of 78717

Certainly no coincidence :D

I really like this, with the exception of that monkey fist of a tie knot.

EliodA, now that you've changed your avatar I realise where your username comes from.

 

Poor old Elio. Great driver in his day. And those really were the days.

 

Speaking of which, OT I know (and apologise in advance), but did anyone see "Rush"? What a great movie.

Have you seen what Flusser actually looks like and what he wears?

He used to be my hero when i was a teenager. Not the most succesful driver, but certainly the most stylish. And every inch a gentleman.

 

(My apologies for derailing the thread with my recent posts about sports people....)
