    In a cage match between David Copeland and 38R, who wins?

    Seriously, some epic trolling this week.

    Well, to his credit, I think there is a greater chance that 38R is just having a laugh. Copeland seems dead serious.

    I don't have any jeans, but this will probably be the only picture in this thread with a cigar store Indian and a teepee......[​IMG]

    Not the world's biggest fan of all browns, but in principle that fit works for me.

    That's a great vest, jacket combo. i feel the pants are too much in the same color palette, some dark grey's would look nice. but, great entry! your fit belongs here. thanks for posting.[​IMG]

    I think this is a great outfit. I especially like the mixture of herringbone and checks. I actually have something like this in my arsenal. Fit pics to come. On the other hand, I can't help but to feel this is a "safe" outfit. I would love to see more examples of tasteful but daring fits. Oh yeah, what happened to the tie dimple? - 5 points for not having the dimple. [​IMG]

    Corduroy and denim. No vest.

    I should probably get the elbow patches redone in something darker.

    I hope you note the fundamental differences between what Dig is doing and what you are doing. It could help you improve the way you dress if, of course, you are actually open to learning how to improve...

    Still, here's to optimism
    [​IMG]


    And I will, at some point, be wearing one of my few odd vests. And it will be with a jacket. And it will not be with jeans. But an odd vest nonetheless. Because I shouldn't be all snark.

    [​IMG] Dude , you crack me up. do you really think with my wardrobe i don't dress like that ?? - on a "Casual Day" i wear jeans, quality shirt, and a s/c or passable orphan.
    Dig looks great! but we are different ages, shapes, and personal styles.
    this thread is here to push the envelope , and demonstrate that "classic menswear" goes a lot further,and is more diverse, than what a very small niche group of people unrealistically believe. menswear as we know it has been evolving for centuries, and is more complex than a 20-30 year "golden age" however "safe' the styling in that period might be. a man's clothes represent his Culture, intellect, profession, personality, courage, and self awareness. you either stand out, or blend in.

    personally, i prefer the time period of 1880-1920. in regards to classic menswear, when gentlemen wore hats, and mixed colors and textures. with clothes put together with function and durability in mind. that is the theory i would like to represent, the "Gentleman culture" where odd items are a staple if you are not super rich. but still people see you as such on a daily basis. now........... Show me your odd fits! [​IMG] and wear a hat.[​IMG]
