no, seriously with jokes aside, your points are good. though they are your own point of view. of course the top looks costume-ish, but the lower one would look great with a bowler hat.
that said. your style is no different to mine. just a little more uniformed. thanks for posting a fit.
come on, hate on my fit...............
yes i also wore a hat today. and have an umbrella, it's raining out.
I'm beginning to think that you are either just a bit young or lacking in self-awareness and understanding rather than being a troll as such. The main differences between the examples posted by other forum members and what you are wearing is the difference between a coherent outfit of well-made (not necessarily expensive BTW) clothes that actually fit versus a random collection of things - terrible ties (tied badly), odd suit jackets that don't really fit you that well, what look like dad jeans and uninteresting shoes - that are just thrown together because of what they are (a jacket, a vest, jeans etc.).
I'm a long way from being the best dressed person here, but you need to pay attention to the basics before you can be an effective iconoclast - that is, as several people have already said, if you care and are actually going to benefit from being in this particular section of the forum at all.
You might think you know better than everyone else here, you only seem to know what you are doing on one level ("I want to look like X"), but it really doesn't look like you have much of a clue on most other levels - particularly fit, coherence and quality. If you have the fit, coherence and quality down, you can do whatever the hell you like. You really don't. Not at all.
And BTW, this would be the same in SW&D, althoughthey go to different places with these basic ideas. You might want to look up a poster called Man of Kent. He does the vintage workwear / quirky British thing exceptionally well.
