#1: Not sure about those jeans and jodspurs together, but not bad. I would ditch the shades or the gloves, or both, unless you are actually onstage. A littel too costumey and try-hard for the street or even going out. Also, something about the top half without a tie seems a little off. Obviously, you are going for a high-low, seventies jet-setter thing, but it either calls for a tie, or just a super crisp shirt. That shirt (or maybe it's the angle) just doesn't look super crisp to me.
#2) Much better. The constrast between the sand Clark's and the dark jeans is very nice, and you put on a tie, which ups the whole outfit up a notch in my books. I'd still ditch the gloves, and/or shades though.
All in all, though, nice looks.

Because I'm insane I spent a great deal of time when abroad thinking about a cool outfit for the fall, and these are the two drafts I came up with!
Ralph Lauren shirt (purple checks)
Vest and jacket (part of suit), second hand
Racing gloves (hellooooo trend victim)
Acne Mod Dry Clean jeans
Acne belt, burgundy
What needs improvement: Get brown jodphurs + belt to match shades, gloves and the brown pattern in the suit (pictures below)
Skinny paisley tie
Jeans, limited Lee Whizzler
Clark's desert boots
