I've just been trolling this thread for a while, but I've just been seeing so much stuff that gets 'praises' that I would laugh at if I saw walking down the street. And as a side note, I have to agree with most of Why's bashing on here.

Is that a black peacoat with brown shoes and brown belt?
Black + Brown = no

Here are some feeble attempts at Thom Browne-y pants with loafers (pennies and all!) and oxfords, respectively (with the turned-up sweater hem):
You actually think it's a good idea to turn up the hem on a sweater? I can't tell from the pictures, but are you folding up the bottom of the sweater? If so, I have to say that seems dumb to me. And I definitely don't like the rolled up pants look that you had going on.

Nice and simple. And always nice quality pictures, which is nice.

I like the whole outfit. The sweater/shirt combo and the jeans. I like the fit much better than most of the posts on here. Lance Konami's post... Loved it.

I really like the styling, it's nice and drapey and really lightweight...anyway, I'm having second thoughts for two reasons. The first is the color; I feel like I have too much gray in my closet, but I'm just drawn to the color! This was also available (in my size) in black and in navy with the same heathering, so I'm considering an exchange. The second thing is, I'm trying to save up for the Helmut Lang and Band of Outsiders sales on Gilt...anyway, I think it's a cool piece, I just wanted other people's opinions.
I like the shirt, but not with those shorts. Too much of the same color.

I assume this is a serious post? The shirt makes me think of some guy in a mob. The pants remind me of Steve Eurkel
from Family Matters.

I like that. I don't know how you don't show your package, but I guess that's not my problem. Well what a first post I'm making...and I don't even have my own pictures to put on here. Go figure.
