    Anyone with multiple pictures should indicate which they don't want me to spoiler. Otherwise I'm just choosing what I think the worst best one is.

    True, but this thread has swayed me at times. In my opinion, GDL and T1 are the front runners. Those two just make it look effortless and honestly, it is quite irritating!

    There's also a good chance that each were used during plague times because everything stank of death and sickness, so a rose or a hanky with a drop or two of perfume to hold under your nose came in pretty handy.

    Ties were used to catch food dripping down to the front of your shirt. Cummerbunds were meant to be worn ridges up because they catch crumbs. Just about every piece of fashion accoutrement has or had a practical purpose. That's one of the reasons I think it's all so cool!

    GDL, Kaplan, and NOBD were the best, IMO. Turtleneck works best for dressy casual.

    With jacket HF pulled it best.

    IanE go see a hair dresser. initially I skipped by your post but after putting my thumb over your noggin I realized that we are here to judge outfits and yours is actually pretty good and it wouldn't be fair to deny yourself the vote due to your schweddy hair.

    A.J.V wins in my opinion. Close second is GDL (shameless repost IIRC) . Kaplan, Casey and Leftofthedial's necks are pretty sweet, too.

    The coat is made by Tagliatore.

    Bought it from a shop here in Helsinki.

    When you get that ponytail, will you also buy a used 96 Mazda Miata?
