    I hem or cuff all jeans that aren't really tappered, say everything above a 7.5" hem, as bigger openings stack in really weird ways IMHO. Of course this doesn't help you much as you probably can barely put your fist in a 7.5" opening but still, with the kind of jeans you wear and the style you're going for I'd say hemming all pairs is pretty much required.

    people try to stack everything nowadays and it looks weird sometimes

    A Harris, very nice. I like your style, it's understated and somehow you manage to make your casual outfits look nearly as elegant as your formal ensembles.

    They look great. Incidentally, I actually think that the one pair of shoes I have with vibram soles are actually more comfortable than my running shoes. That stuff is unreal.

    LOL Drizzzt and his jackets, its hilarious!! I'm sure they look good in person, but OMG online, he never gets enough critism. Its totally satire, its great!! Drizzt and his comments make my day over and over again.

    Dude you're not joking, I was giggling reading over the last couple pages.

    SoCal2NYC - My puny reptilian brain can't comprehend how many fantastic outfits of these outrageous designer names you have, they always look great, and they're always patterns and colors and pairings that I'd never consider trying like the white jeans with a blazer and a pocket square, loafers etc. Everything always goes together great even if it goes a bit to the 'dandy' side for my aesthetic, you're one of the posters I look forward to seeing pictures from because it's completely different from how I think. Just sayin.

    Yah,

    No matter how much you try, it just doesn't work in any way, shape or form.


    Sorry,

    +1 on that. I'd never wear a sportcoat with tiger eye buttons but man that is a killer outfit today, one of my favorites.

    Everyone seems so harsh! If I had a body type like drizz I would probably find it really difficult to find the right look.

    btw, I've been trying to find out what shoulder roping/roped shoulders refer to. Google is no help...

    Well done guys. I've been eying that Bedford jacket for a while, but am hoping to catch it on sale.

    Socal, nice look today. I think it is my second favorite, after your very first post in this thread.

    My jacket today (the brown mohair YSL) had ropped shoulders.

    Kind of what it sounds like. The top of the sleeve at the armhole seam is shaped in such a way that it looks like there is a small piece of rope sewn inside.

    See the bump at the edge? That's roping, really a little roll of cotton padding sewn in around the top edge under the outer fabric.

    I think some points are valid, and others I don't agree with.

    I appreciate comments about some of the pieces that I post simply because a lot of the outfits I post in WAYWN are experimental fits that I play around with when I get home. Most of the stuff I actually wear is similar each day and I don't bother to post it (and primarily MC stuff)

    I agree that that particular Canali jacket has some issues but I think they can be fixed.

    Thanks for your advice. I'll now exercise my right to completely disregard it. I'm also overwhelmed by your stellar and perfectly fitting outfits. Oh wait, you haven't posted any... While I might disagree (at least somewhat) with Socal's opinion about that particular fit, at least he can back up his opinion with excellent fitting and creative looks.
