    If this wasn't a blazer, and the jeans were hemmed properly, this might have worked better (I agree; the top half is too business for the bottom's casual). I, too, dislike this kind of wash, but I think some people can pull it off. I would have gone with brown loafers, personally. (Or, at least, a green belt.)

    I really don't want you to be discouraged, because, I think with time, you could learn a lot, and post some really good stuff. Sometimes, people in SF can be assholes; just ignore them--they'll just get grey before you. ;)

    I pretty much agree with Irate..

    Get yourself a T-shirt or other casual shirt to wear with these jeans. Roll the cuff of the jeans down more because it makes you look stubby, and you don't need that in your life. I think you want as much height effect as you can, so lose the cuffs even. I think you want long, sheer, unrestricted... (those kind's of words)

    Then get yourself a good pair of more formal trousers to wear with the top half of your outfit.

    The top half looks great by the way. Blazer/SC/Jacket fits you well. Shirt and Tie are very neat. Colours are good, and i like how the PS mimic's the shirt/tie. :nodding:

    The sunglasses give the effect of a bumble bee, or maybe Jackie Onassis Kennedy on a bad hair day. :embar:

    I prefer southernstyle's fratty-kudzu ensembles to many others posted recently in this thread.

    I do not say that to encourage what he's doing, but his decisions seem familiar while many others made seem rather alien to me.

    I realize that many of you aren't American.

    Nice progress. Replace denim with Levi's 511 slim (or something a bit more tapered below the knee), replace shirt with a more casual sport shirt top button undone, tie loose= winner, imo.

    Dig the shoes - love the colors.

    Techically, it's not a lawn unless the main plant growing in it is grass.

    In my experience, the bungee cord snaps you back before impact.

    SF membership would instantly be cut by 2/3 at the least.

    southernstyle's jacket seems a bit shouldery, but even with that I think he looks stylish. Y'all need to stop drinkin' that Haterade. If you want to give him some pointers on refining his style, that's wonderful, but this nonsense about telling him to stop posting is just stupid.

    I like the purple and green; it seems pleasant enough. The photo makes it look like you have very low shoulders. Why no pocket square??
