Yes, I did!
Hey, now, no need to use profanity!
that's what this thread is all about.
unique style. thanks for sharing.
odd pants are also welcome.
An important question for all SF posters: Are you open to the idea that you dress poorly/can improve how you dress? If you think that you are well dressed and will continue thinking so no matter what anyone tells you, then commentary is useless.
That being said, after seeing two outfits from 38R and several from Barrell, I'm of the opinion that you gentlemen do not dress well. I wouldn't mind going into detail, but I'd like to know that you're are willing to listen. I'd rather not waste my time. I am not mad nor am I a female. If I were both of those things, it would not change my feelings however.
There isn't an accepted definition of what looks good; I accept that.
There is, however, a fairly accepted definition of CM. This doesn't enter into it. CM is about expressing your style within certain traditional--and admittedly inorganic--boundaries. Subtle coloring outside the lines demonstrates skill and finesse. SW&D is about artfully working outside rules or at least pushing them to their breaking point.
This thread clearly belongs in SW&D; there are quite a few people there who will probably work the vest-sans-jacket to great effect.
On a related note, here is a picture of me sitting on a toilet:
Edit: Both ACS and Tira walk the boundaries of CM. ACS crosses the boundaries more, but he does it with a sense of fun, takes his lumps when they come, and isn't defensive. In short, he has the personality for it to work (as well the taste, generally--sorry ACS, but I can't get behind that one four sided tie or those jeans )
I actually think so too, and I think it could go in two different directions. It could either go CM, wherein people post suits or odd jacket/trou fits with vests, or the SW&D route...which would need to be executed skillfully by the people over there.
