A delusion of mediocrity; something that is more than common in a world transfixed by competing relative truths without material reality.

Exactly. Jacket too long on MC and the SW&D 'inner jacket" hanging down looks, to my eye, rather foolish; although I guess I get what he is trying to do. I certainly have a bias in that I don't like untucked button up shits, even (especially?) flannel, so I will go with MC on this despite the long suit coat.

An interesting comparison would be for F.C./Vox to pick two looks that he thinks are close to perfect for the day and see what everyone has to say, rather than selecting two that exhibit the same flaw, which is what he seems to be doing.

Something like a "look of the day" but for both MC and SWD ?

I think he's picking fits that he considers to be about equal in quality.

You seem to be suggesting that I post five or six times a year.

I have heard that suggestion before, but not limited to this thread.

Hmmm. I'm confused. Wouldn't it make more sense to pit the SWD posts against pics from the MC Casual thread. I post much worse shit over there.

Look again, sir. That's a Drakes of London grenadine.

Nice anti-fit suits from both sides.

Welcome to the 'Unfortunate Ties' club, of which I am a proud founding member.

Apparently, Drakes grenadine and Hober challis ties are passe.

(Cue Noob Cycle Chart from Acrid...)
