Thanks! I actually don't understand all the disdain the jeans with sport coat gets. I'm guilty of doing it almost every day (although I work in a glorified factory)... And this happenin dude's bracelet is actually a medical alert bracelet to inform people of a life threatening allergy to penicillin, what can I say I was ahead of the curve.

Ballin'. You should upgrade to the identical Margiela bracelet -- now only $550!


I suppose jeans + blazer is a staple sw+d look. All depends on the items, I guess.

We must be able to agree that it is better than jeans without a blazer?

Ha, Ralph had one last year or two years ago. Sterling silver at $995... shoulda woulda coulda.

 

See, I always hear that but the way I (try to) do it I always seem to think it falls closer to CM. I can't see the appeal in 90% of the SW+D pairings with it. Perhaps that's what everyone thinks when they looks at me :cry: 

 

And there is this discussion happening.

right now snowman had my vote

 

Unfortunately it is too warm in Berkeley for me to wear a scarf irl, BUT I did just get a pair of black suede slippers in the mail, and of course had to put on my whole tux rig to try them on. I then threw a scarf on top and called it a day.

 

anyway here is another one of my shitty mirror selfie nonsense entries that narrowly meets the challenge criteria

haha thanks but the ball already happened like 6 months ago I just now finally got a pair of the black suede slippers I was looking to get to complete the look. they were like $25 so I dont feel too bad about having a pair of shoes I will probably very rarely wear

If I owned that, I'd have a really hard time not reinventing myself as some sort of southwest-inspired Fremen.

A pretty beat-up black hbt sportscoat, tailor unknown. I know it doesn't have the cachet of something that isn't, you know, old and unknown, but goddamn is this thing ever nice. Thick, stretchy fabric, generous satin lining, minimal shoulder padding, and an unstructured chest. Maybe a little long and loose by igent standards, but it's more comfortable than any sweater I own.   

 

Nice handmade button holes, hand-stitched overlock along the belly edges giving way to subtly swelled edges at the lapels, a prettily curved chest pocket, and a mini ticket pocket perfectly sized for a stack of rubbers and an eightball. Sometimes it's the weird ones that get you.

 

edit: didn't see that this was the FITPIC bragging thread. Don't have pic. Whoops.
