    Wait, you smell that?
    that's a pretty tight look. Great color combo. Popped collar or not. I'm not so sure that it's a t-shirt rather than a sweater over the polo.

    They sell Chuck's now without laces. I'm not sure if this guy had regular Chucks and ditched the laces, but many shoe stores now carry the lace-less variety (I'm assuming the shoe is constructed so the shoe doesn't just slip off).

    Does anyone know where he might have acquired the jacket (or the pants for that matter)? I wouldn't mind picking up something similar.

    When I see saddle shoes - 1950's girl comes to mind, not prep.

    This is the sort of person who gets hit by one car that throws his body into another car.

    The purpose of trying to look nonchalant is to look nonchalant, not to look like you're trying to look nonchalant. Right?

    Right-on my brother. Statements as profound as this should not go unnoticed.

    Is it me or your shoes runs way too big; I can see a 1/4" space between the your heel and the spine of the shoes.

    QFT. As I passed a bar the other day on my way home from work, a guy exiting stepped out right in front of me. He had on a white polo under a pink polo, both collars popped. The fact that I repressed my immediate urge to "accidentally" shove him is a testament to my upbringing.

    If this guy just dropped the collar and put the laces back in his Chucks, it would work so much better.



    My God. There's a photo floating around the web with a guy wearing THREE popped-collar polos. This is getting out of hand - like razor technology.

    +1 to having laces and unpopping the collar will make it look better. to me it looks like a sweater over the shirt.

    There's only one place a popped collar on a polo shirt is appropriate: on the golf course, on a hot day, to avoid neck sunburn.

    +1. Although I have to admit I did pop my collar back in the day, before the fraternity scene took it over... I now reseve it strictly for the golf course.

    That's because things were quiet on the "all Trad, all the time" thread. Let's talk about the clothes.

    Actually, I came here in search of Neo-Prep. I am disappointed. I'm going to pop my collar, listen to The Cure, and pout.
