Holy buckets....I feel like he flipped me the bird and held up a neon sign that says "My jacket and I want to tell you to fuck off." I am now stupefied in shame and confusion.

This is my 5th challenge, and I've not yet garnered a single vote. Gotta crawl before I walk or fly.

Fortune favors the bold.

AAS, my wife has pronounced your outfit today to be "bold, but tasteful."

Fantastic, doesn't get any more FU than this. The PS is lovely :-)

Hi guys, from early week.  FU-osity is not off the charts but then the blue bands don't really shout in this pic

I can't tell you how much I wish that was a suit.

I have no idea when I'd ever wear it, but that never stopped me before.

This is the most FU jacket that I have for summer anyhow.

Hips wider than shoulders a la oldog oldtrix is never flattering IMO.

1) it's a picture of his torso; the accuracy of the proportions cannot be assumed

2) if his hips are wider than his shoulders, there's not really much he can do about that

I thought about getting matching pants, but yeah...no idea when I'd wear the thing as a suit and also I don't think the fabric (a soft cashmere blend) would last long for trousers.

Steven Hitchcock bespoke 3 piece Lovat tveed suit, T&A bespoke yellow shirt, Hoper PS, Dolbeau raw silk bow, John Lobb double monks - angry expression by me!

He may not but his tailor can. Extended shoulders and shoulder pads, it does give a pear effect right now.
