This is unquestionably airbrushed. Looks like a flamingo.

The canvassing looks like armour on a suit cut this ridiculously slim.

For the right guy and for the right work or social setting it can look cool. Here are some of the guys at Sid Mashburn pulling it off.

I think of a young(er) guy in a setting where he is likely to get another beer at any moment (think: cook-out, bar, tailgate, pre-game, etc). Things like this are less about what you're wearing and more how you carry yourself (you know, true style). These guys (even in still pictures) all look like they are precocious dudes who are going to shake your hand with a shit eating grin like they just heard a hysterical, embarrassing secret about you. That's key.

FWIW, I think the Mashburn dudes pull off the jeans and tie look nicely, but I still think the dudes in suits or odd coats look the best whenever I'm in there.

I think all those guys would actually look better without the tie and open collar though...

Actually, I have no big problem with this jacket although I know it looks scantily but the trousers is more than ludicrous in my eyes.
It is a Burberry London suit (slim fit line or used to be called skinny fit at their official website). It costs approximately $2000 for a suit with a half canvassed jacket so I think its price is highly inflated just because of its brand name. Thus, it's the most ridiculous point smile.gif
I'm sorry for my terrible English.

Jesus, feed that man a sandwich. I can't even tell if that suit is SF approved as I'm distracted by the skeletal frame it's draped over.

Speaking of ridiculous trends, this "back tie blade longer than the front and/or deliberately askew" thing drives me nuts.

His legs scare me.  If he doesn't start eating, he's not long for this world.

In perspective, isn't that a small thing to drive you nuts? Shouldn't "drive me nuts" be reserved for something a bit more extreme?

It's always the little things, in everything, that drive me nuts.

I find this whole ' look at me - trying hard to look like I'm not trying hard' a bit pathetic really, and usually distracting from an otherwise good outfit. Timotune and Phat Guido are/were some of the worst offenders.

I read an interview with Bruno Cuccinelli recently where he said he has to re-tie his tie several times each morning until he achieves the right amount of studied nonchalance.

I can't remember who, but someone here has a fantastic rule that they will only give themselves one attempt at tying their tie and then live with it. I've since adopted a similar policy but with two attempts.

Ties tied without a dimple.

I will only retie for drastic length issues, which happen on occasion
