    This is one of the best jackets posted here, it looks like it was made out of sofa material and molded by alien goo fusing.

    Pusillanimous.

    But I'll point out in case big brother is watching that I originally posted only because I was curious whether gunslinger knew a better word than cloying.


    This exchange is cloying.

    The offset colored laces are interesting. I bet these get a lot of comments simply b/c they stand out from 99% of the other shoes in the room. [​IMG] Thoughts on fit of the khakis in the waist/crotch area? [​IMG] The Flusser books (p.28) says if you have a "muted/low contrast" complexion, or a "ruddy/rosyt"you can have some brighter/warmer hues in the clothing to add some luster Would that apply here? Or is the pocketsquare enough? [​IMG] I see many small wrinkles over the vamp. Is this preferred vs. 1 or 2 larger creases? [​IMG]

    I tagged my favorites in this thread. I'd like to start finding/buying the pieces to evolve into this look. I think there are some common building blocks here. I have dark slacks and Oxford shirts. I'd like to incorporate this sweater layer, but I always had bulky (and long) sweaters. For starters, I will look for 1 or 2 "earthy" toned sweaters, and 1 or 2 checked sportcoats. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    well... here's some more recent (2010) favorites of mine: no particular order or reason, maybe just because I like the mix of proportions and colors. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Still the best jacket posted here:
    http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...&postcount=403

    unless I missed a few recent additions I'd say I still like the same people the best (including some that stopped posting), anyone knows what happened to the blonde scandinavian dude always in vintage stuff (I think he dealt in antiques)? He was top5.

    Lucky Strike - he hasn't been around I don't think. I, too, like his style.
