    Horses for courses.

    Do not wear sneakers to meet bankers, do not wear jacket and tie to meet with silicon valley entrepreneurs.

    wtf are you talking about? The jeans look bad. They are good jeans (I've personally worn through 2 pairs), but they do not look good there. Vox, on the other hand, wears them well (though differently than say, how I wore mine.) I think that if anything this shows that you can put perfectly good things together and come up with a mess.

    a) unless you are/were Steve Jobs, and b) Unless you are an angel investor about to shower them with a ton of money.

    FWIW I think Greg is wearing the same jeans there too I think.

    I don't understand how MC gdl looks more 'natural' than SWD gdl - i mean, streets of New York, you are far more likely to run into a guy wearing a black leather jacket, a stole or scarf, a white tee, jeans, and sneakers than you are a younger guy in a loud jacket like that. Maybe someone twice or nearly three times gdl's age, but I don't really see it being natural in his environs.

    Clearly, on a Saturday night downtown, I did not look out of place with a black leather. I would have looked strange in the guncheck sport coat. And vice-versa at work on Friday.

    My KMW are Rockers but they're not the ones in this particular pic (with the DR). The ones with the DR are black APC NS (I always comments in WAYWT about the NS because they don't taper enough and look "funny" below the knee...)

    I think that what is meant by "natural" is "at ease". At least, that's what I meant.

    I don't completely understand what it is that happens with APC NS and I've seen a number of NS fits in person and there's basically as many fits for those as there are people - perhaps you just need to do a couple washes eventually and maybe a tumble dry (yeah, I know...) but my APC NS always shrink up to nearly Dior size in the lower leg. Synthese also displays this kind of fit if you've seen his destroyed APC PS. They start out kinda wider when they're raw obviously but for some reason that lower leg shrinks in very nicely and then if you wear them slouched, the thighs will remain stretched, so the overall shape morphs quite a bit over time and the inseam gains a significant taper. It's kind of interesting, maybe the luck of the draw depending on your waist size needed.

    The two best pieces of advice I will ever give on this forum:

    1. Do not watch this trailer.*
    2. Watch this movie. Now.

    * Far too many spoilers

    As a guy who wears a 32 or 33 in NS and PS, this effect doesn't scale up. Much prefer the PS taper to the NS.
