@sebastian mcfox solid entry! Where's the hat from?
post #62 of 87

Thanks! It's made by Sublime

I'd seen it on there, but looks much better in your photos. Tempted now. Thanks!

I thought the hat belonged to his wife, and he wore it as a joke...

post #65 of 87
The reason his outfit is winning is precisely because it is not a joke. He looks really good. The hat would normally be worn with a more casual fit, and wearing it with a sport coat makes the look a bit more Pitti (I.e. able to stand out and attract a photographer's lens in a sea of thousands of fits).

I actually think he's winning because he is wearing very nice things which fit him exceptionally and are in keeping with the theme. I think he'd be on top whether he wore the hat or not.

Me too, but I think the same about a lot of the stuff I see in Pitti photos.

Thanks Greg and Caustic for the kind words!

The hat looks a bit out of place with this fit, but isn't pushing boundaries and having fun in the spirit of Pitti?

Yes, I think so.  Either because one needs to stand out a bit (PR, marketing, publicity), or because it is a place where there's enough experimentation happening that it feels more comfortable to do so.

Yes, it seems so. I'm glad you mentioned that the hat looks a bit out of place, because it does. However, as the other guy mentioned, I doubt anyone would feel self conscious about wearing it at Pitti.

post #71 of 87
Exactly. It's out of place here, but not there. And that's the whole point.
post #72 of 87

I liked your initial response better.

Is this the biggest blowout in FC history?
post #74 of 87

Wow, many thanks to all you voted. I am truly flattered

Congrats Mr. mcfox.  Beautiful outfit.

 

I’ve always liked DTO challenges.  One of celebrities or other public figures could be fun—post a photo of someone else and one of yourself imitating it.  A movie still, other celebrity shot, whatever.

 

But you certainly earned the right to do whatever you damn well please. 

 

Cheers,
