Slightly darker gray pants would be great, but I think slightly lighter would be even better as it lets the navy overcoat and scarf provide the contrast. Sometimes jacket and trou only need a little bit of separation to look good. I like to do this with tans, too.

I agree with you Parker, it looks great. Partially because it's not the same old look.

I'm all for "real people" but there has to be a certain standard. I get how a look could be totally against everything I believe in, yet be very interesting. but just throwing disparate sh*t together does not equal style. So, he has a navy DB blazer, a sports jacket, some butt ugly scarf, what seem to be tweed trousers and an interesting hat. You could theoretically photograph everyone in the street and find similar "looks".

I do a fair number of low contrast odd jacket/trouser combos, and this earns me widespread approbrium.

The next time, ParkerBoy and you had better have my back.

Obvious photoshopee.

James never stands with less than a 24" spread between his feet.

There's low-contrast wrong and low-contrast weird. Neither are good, and your attempts hover somewhere between them. Maybe that's the best one can hope for.

Isn't that what Shuman does?

Seriously though, I am more with you than not on this one... and also think that his photos sometime make more of the look than they would really be in real life... especially with his +20 saturation. Though this one holds better than many... and a daily walk through WAYWN proves that "achieving" this look is more teh fail than teh win

James Busts a Toot.

Nothing better to close down a day than an Aristophanes reference.

I' gots your back.

But let me clause by saying that I think it works well with heavier fabrics, not sure what I think with summer weight fabrics.

I'm merely upset that you did not contribute constructively to my Transformers thread.
