It's so much easier to rant about how awful the advice is than to think of anything constructive or interesting to discuss.

e.g.

With a tweed blazer, a cardigan-tie combo would be a standard-issue college look. With a jean jacket, it's prep with a touch of rebellion.

again, where do they live that a tweed blazer, cardigan and tie is a standard issue college look?

1954? My cousin attended a rather undistinguished state college in the late 60s after coming home from Nam. He bitched about having to wear a sport coat to class. I had the good fortune to attend the same school in 1976. I don't believe I saw a single sport coat on anyone in my 3 1/2 years in attendance. If I did, it was worn "ironically".

Honestly nothing annoys me like the GQ look. Messily rolled cuffs, a blazer that is too short, a skinny regimental or fake club tie over a denim shirt for the rugged, autumnal masculinity that comes with it and goes ever so well with the casual sans souci "sprezz" look of a tie that has been let loose. A tote (like totes are so goddamn important). We can't forget the persol 714s, because steve mcqueen wore those and apparently nobody in the history of cinema or probably the world other than mcqueen has ever dressed well, according to GQ. Of course the moncler puffer vest under your suit, because only your arms get cold. The red and gold and black striped socks under your beaten and tattered shoes (scuffs=character), or better yet, go sockless and wear sperrys because theres something bold about wearing boat shoes to the office, and these are made by band of outsiders. And if your suit comes with functional button cuffs (and why wouldnt it, because you've bought your clothes at club monaco as only CM makes good suits and theirs have working cuffs) remember to leave one undone so people know, after looking at every hallmark mens magazine bit of clothing you're wearing, that your whole sartorial personality is an enormous affectation. Don't forget to look at how Ryan Gosling was dressed this week. J crew j crew j crew.

Sorry for the rant, but sometimes I see these GQ clones running around on the train in the morning and I can't help but think that listening 100% to what a magazine tells you is anything but an admission to taking no pleasure at all in clothes and how you dress. Don't misread me, sometimes Ill page through a magazine and see a pair of shoes I like, but I don't make it my mission to be a chiral twin of a GQ model.

I think cropped pants still look fine if it's summer, and you're sockless, and the pants are odd pants worn with something suitably casual, such as a u-neck t-shirt. It's when you bring the look into suit ensembles it tends to start looking a bit awry (and in 2012, also a bit post-peak).

It occurred to me a few years ago that although mannequins and models look nice in their stylish and plentiful combinations, they really make no account for real weather or heat. If you wore all of Ralph Lauren's summer gear in the window of one of his shops on a true summers day you'd faint about five minutes after leaving the house.

But everyone would take pictures of your unconscious body while you lay there! Or even better, those who thought that maybe you needed some help or just wanted to emulate your style would help you out by helping themselves to one of your pieces. Ralph always thinks of his lines with philanthropy in mind.

E-mail address, friend.

It's 6.6 MB, which is too big for SF PMs.
