I like colors, shapes and textures that compliment me rather than just look stunning on their own.

I can see one day just going full 60s Ivy Look, but my current grooming would create a weird disconnect. I also risk looking like an insurance salesman.

 

Besides the crazy psychedelic print suit I just got, I'd say the above still holds true for me in 2014. it's kinda weird trying to resolve my disparate interests into a united look or style -- and sometimes I wish I had a more singular, consistent look. but clothes are sort of like music to me, can't always listen to the same thing everyday.  :-)

I'm not cool and never have been and never will be. Style is sad vanity and preening and to no effect, hope to quit it, probably won't. All pathetic.

Great analogy P... I could not agree more. I think it sometimes prevents me from posting other anomalous fits as they may come off as too all-over-the-place or lacking a consistent ethos. Not that one necessarily need have one, but I do admire some posters that do.

btw... you've posted plenty of great fits so keep it up and enjoy!

I disagree working stiff. Style is an expression of character.

Thread Starter 
Im doing the same thing as the last couple of years, but after many years of disliking black, the color has returned. Influences include Margaret Howell, black metal and being a balding (very soon finished) PhD in experimental psychology/cognitive neuroscience with a splash of behavioral ecology. Wool, boxy fits, dark colors, snarky attitude.
