    No Magenta wall,[​IMG]- but a nice place to take some pics. Casual, in a hat.

    38R - that certainly wins an award for sinister. Are you preparing for a nice evening of ooltra-violence, followed by some of the ole' in-out, in-out with a random devotchka in the Roller?

    I'm still on a denim detox since my first FC :) but I had to give this one a try...

    Some interesting looks coming in; good to see the experimentation!

    Clags, if those trousers had been black jeans instead (maybe dark blue, but I think black would have been better), yours would have been pretty damn fantastic and my favourite so far.

    thumbed for the entertainment value, stitchy!

    Actually, if you had a panama, the tie-less version would have rocked with it. Navy straw hat also. Cream trousers with either headwear option and it would have been even better.

    Srs question: how much leeway do most reasonably observant Jews have in yarmulke choice? Can you have different ones for different outfits, or is there a more prescriptive range?

    Kinda funny: this is kind of a T1-ish look I wanted to wear today anyway, and I just picked up a hat. Fate, I guess. I'm not sure if I'm fully committed to the hat lifestyle.

    ^ concept is great, and I like the shirt. Hat might be slightly big on you? Or at least, the crown might be slightly too high relative to the brim width? Something about the proportion isn't quite right IMO, but it's not far off.

    I can see what you're saying - I think that the hat might benefit from sitting slightly hgher above YRR's eyebrows - tipping it back a little might improve the look.

    Fantastic stuff, Cleav! [​IMG]

    Edit: I realise now that it's probably only a shadow under your nose, but you should grow a 'tache, man!

    Mate, you getting a habit of flushing me out of hiding! :rotflmao: Okay, I'll take your bait a second time...

    The only occasion in my life I possessed any facial hair was for Movember in 2012. IIRC raised about £850. Four weeks of it and it was shaved off. A guy that can grow a great beard or 'tache is something to behold but I just can't get on with it.
