    Miles is the Birth of the Cool. Nobody else has Miles cool.

    True story: A friend of mine wrote a story that ended up being turned into a TV movie. One of the cast members was an ex-lover of Miles Davis. As a condition of her casting, she insisted that one of the characters who in the story was named Miles be given a different name for the movie, because "there was only one Miles."

    Somehow this turned into a Miles Davis lovefest.

    Which I support.

    And indeed, no one else has Miles Cool. Which became more of a good thing in his later years, but all the same...

    Possibly in passable taste. The pants and square aren't as matchy as they appear in the pic, I forgot to change the "film type" on the ole' Fuji so it's oversaturated.

    As for the extended tie blade, this tie is too long and I didn't have a knife handy . . . .

    Why apologize?

    Manton says that up to an inch can be in good taste but you've got barely two inches and it doesn't look terribly affected so I don't see the problem.

    The Illuminatti may skewer you for the jacket not being part a suit, though.

    Ah, I guess not then. Mine are NsM. But fabric is very similar.

    Can someone explain why navy jacket with light grey trousers is SFapproved but light grey jacket with navy trousers is not(?) I am certain that this question will provoke all manner of snark but I am willing to sacrifice my body for the half of the forum that is wondering the same thing I am. For instance, below is a pic of Nay in a light colored jacket and navy trousers - if the jacket is grey, why is it bad taste(?)

    ^^

    I don't think that outfit was criticized as being in bad taste, other than that dead parrot stuck in his pocket.

    It doesn't look grey to me.

    On the subject on grey jackets, guess I'll post today's fit here, you be the judge (I don't think it's very good, but who knows)
