Not sure if classic, but definitely casual.

Very nice!

 

Not often do we see a Longines Evidenza in the wild. I believe Mr. Mikkelsen wore one in "Casino Royale" when portraying Le Chiffre.

Thanks.  Old Navy is the maker.  Material is 50% wool and 50% synth of some kind.

That's funny! Thanks for the information. I have a pile of Old Navy's $14.95 cotton v-neck pullovers and wear them more often than I care to admit. There's something to be said for having some non-precious garments that you can wear without worry.

Same goes for my Tommy Hilfiger V-neck pullovers!

Thanks! I find it to be a classy and classic design. And it was a gift from my wife so I'd love it even if it were a Casio.

I'll have to watch for it next time I see Casino Royale again. Good eye to pick that up.

I'm pretty sure @thefoxtooth is quite a spirited animal, yes. smile.gif And may I say amen to all this talk about rise. I'm glad to see that its sneaking in a few places, but it's not easy to find. Nor is a fuller cut trouser. You look at all those inspiration photos posted earlier or at Gentleman's Gazette or any decent vintage workwear blog and you see trousers you just can't find much of these days.

@mc2k That's a really good fit. Hat looks like it goes well. Do you ever wear a broader brim, considering your warm and sunny climate?

@Caustic Man I'll see your not classic, but definitely casual:

I have a cotton crewneck from Old Navy which is stellar; halfway between a t-shirt and a sweater.  I regret not buying another; something like that is surprisingly hard to find.  The thing about that fast-fashion stuff, when it's gone, it's gone.  

 

I bought some wifebeaters from them after Xmas, fell in love, and they're already vanished.

I want more foxtooth fashion + music crossover content tbh.

@FrankCowperwood Now that's a very nice fit. I really love those cuffs:fonz: You're always kind, Frank. Thanks for the thumbs:) I own quite a sizable number of hats (obviously due to the sunny climate), and settles on the type to wear depending on the ensemble and how much I'll be walking in the sun. I do like the broader brim ones more though:)

Haha... I too like high-rise trousers/jeans/pants but as a child of my time I too like some low rise  jeans. I think they look pretty good depending on the occasion (and body). I have very long legs so sometimes high rise trousers/jeans make them look even longer. If one is on the shorter side or has short legs, then, low-rise is not for him.

^Lower rise can certainly be a good look, and you are right Chulillo, it can depend on proportions and body type.

On the fast fashion thing, reading popular press stories about it the theme seems to be "retailers who keep up with trend." But it strikes me as a way to keep inventory ticking over through constant novelty with a dash of FOMO in there as well. Which is to say, I'm not sure if fast fashion's real raison is to be a conduit for the latest trends as much as it is a manufacturing and supply chain concept grounded in the importance of inventory turns. Of course, if stuff is really cycling through so fast, how do they keep coming up with variations of stuff to make? I'm sure this is what gets covered in business school, right? smile.gif

@mc2k Narrower brims seem to be preferred around here (when people wear a proper hat vs. a cap). I think most of the time the hats are worn for fashion rather than function and the smaller brim wins there (is this the high rise/low rise of hats... ha ha). I will admit its sometimes hard to know what to do with a hat with a large brim once you take it off.

Of course, if you find someone wearing a straw or felt hat for more practical reasons, I think you'll be more likely to find a wider brim.

I'm considering picking up one of these for the warmer months:

It's really inexpensive and I could beat it up a bit and see how it turns out.
