Do you know who the real heroes are? The guys who wake up every morning and go into their normal jobs, and get a distress call from the Commissioner and take off their glasses and change into capes and fly around fighting crime. Those are the real heroes.

Head over to ebassist my man. Totally excellent discussion, occasionally about bass. Often about the people who spend time there.

Let's get this back on track. We got another timeless classic gentleman over here:

For colors, I layered rugby stripes with a plaid shirt and a floral print tie.

Brushed suede monk straps added texture to the winter feel, but the colored socks kept the outfit relevant to Spring.

Like art, fashion comes best when it's organic. When putting an outfit together, too much planning is like not knowing when you're done seasoning a dish or when you've laid down your last brush stroke. Start with a piece you like and then just grab random items to layer on top of it. I wanted to rock the polka dot sweater, but had no clue what to pair it with. Grabbed the eggplant denim next. The polka dot on eggplant was a bit much, so toned it down with brown tweed. Utilitarian tweed and chambray was a good juxtaposition to the polka and purple. Lapel pin and sherbet paisley pocket square added visual interest.

This guy was asking me if I was the guy from "City of Gentlemen." I replied, "Well yes, I am."

I'm sure that happened, bro.

I doubt it. It's like the whole Instagram thing, where everyone is suddenly some kind of fashion guru or e-celebrity.

 

However, I do know a fashion blogger IRL, and she was into it before the whole blogger explosion.

Would you be willing to clarify?

 

 

 

I know teger wrote that, but I just wanted to chime in. Most people, the vast majority, do dress like crap, and I´m inclined to guess you know (you should if not) that already. So, getting compliments from people - for whom putting a decent outfit on a daily basis would be the equivalent to any of us  climbing Mount Everest- don´t really count for much. At least If I wore a suit and got compliments from people in sweats or jeans 2 sizes too big and sporty sneakers, it wouldn´t really mean anything.

I think dressing that way would make you stand out undesirably because a guy in a suit, in a pool of underdressed people, is always a recipe for being treated as if you´re wanting to be noticed or like you´re trying to be better (or that you are better) due to your wardrobe choices. At least that´s how I see it.

If you're wearing a suit to class in college, you're going to look like a pretentious assclown. Doesn't matter if it's a great fit or not. Everyone who has said that context matters is absolutely correct. The people who were complimenting you were doing it to be polite/feed your ego, because that kind of dress sense dictates that you have low self confidence and are fishing for compliments to sustain yourself.

If you want to dress well, wear what everyone else is wearing, but do it better. For example, instead of Levi's, wear APC. Instead of desert boots, wear a pair of Butteros or F+B. Instead of a generic flannel, wear a quality one from RRL or a button down from BoO, Gitman, or EG.

Mind you, that recommendation is based off the "norm" of my university's fashion, so tailor it to your campus.

Life's too short to worry about what everyone else's wearing. I like what I wear, and it's not interfering with my social life, so who cares?

Nobody cares, please don't post about it here.
