I am no insider, so please correct me if I am wrong, but we seem to have very little information as to what occasion Vox's picture has been taken at. Therefore, given Vox's record of being well-dressed, we should give him the benefit of doubt that his dress was indeed appropriate for the occasion.

Guys, I did leave open the possibility that it was an impromptu photo. We don't know the context. (And I doubt Vox would visit a presidential candidate or attend an official function in a tweed jacket and flannel pants)

However, examining the photo itself and not factoring in context, he is underdressed compared to Mitt.

Just to be clear here: do you think my original post did not have a sarcastic tone to it?

It might just be my taste, but is the collar of the shirt very large? Great looking as always otherwise.

TTO, you are one of the most impressive dressers around here, and this is of course in most ways up to your usual standard. However, with the greatest of respect, I find that this outfit makes you look like you have no neck.

 

I think it's the combination of a "popped" shawl collar and the long, long shirt points. Maybe the hat contributes too. We all have to work with our little bodily quirks - me with my barrel chest and slight stoop, others with their short legs. Your cardigan is nice but I would definitely wear that collar flat. And I'm not convinced the shirt collar is right for your build.

Cardigan is a red herring, its the collar on the shirt and the epic drape of beard. Cardigan merely frames the illusion. 

Still, I don't think its a big issue. Not like people actually think his ears are on his shoulders.

Where can I purchase that shawl cardigan, TTO

Looks wonderful
post #14382 of 16822
I got it a couple of years back, a brand called 'Shore Leave'.
