    Apparently he's a stylist, so I'm gonna assume he came up with the look. Agreed that it looks ridiculous; doesn't really seem like there's an overarching theme or any real design philosophy behind it.

    Did he come up with the look himself, or is he modeling it for someone? At first this almost looks good, until you see the rest of the outfit. Suit sleeves rolled up (but shirt sleeves remain unrolled), pant legs rolled up, ugly track sprinter style shoes, and all of his buttons are done up. The thing is with his looks and with that suit he could look like a model if he wanted to and yet he went with a more extreme look.

    Just curious:

    1. what overarching theme or 'real' design philosophy is there for SF-approved looks? What is the 'real' design philosophy behind a suit?
    2. why do clothes even need overarching themes or real design philosophy behind them?
    3. when do design philosophies become 'real'?

    This chick tried to get in my car one night while I was stopped at a red light. She was definitely up to no good.

    I kinda like this. I would like it more if the trou weren't cropped but instead just rolled up. Having the trou hemmed so high makes it look conspicuously manufactured. Were I doing it, I'd choose something like the Paul Smith Ricard boot, thinking it would maintain the contrast in style while offering a bit more harmony. The part I like least is the tie, though I imagine the workwear-ish red plaid was chosen deliberately to pair with the boots. Interesting idea, but I just don't dig the tie itself.

    I think the more appropriate distinction could be between that which appears 'contrived' and what seems more 'real'.

    By dint of what we all do on these boards, all or most of our outfits are thought out and considered (which could be interpreted as a 'design philosophy', although I don't think it ever quite goes so deep as this). I think this could be from where any overarching fixation with sprezzatura stems; that is, we are deliberately setting out to create a look of some sort but are conscious of the fact there is a fine - and blurred - line between trying too hard and casual nonchalance.
