there are so many more devastating fashion mistakes than the ones he was listing. So many more.

Again, the ever elusive rules and the exceptions to them. In general, the guy is giving more good advice than bad.

how about using the Big Boy voice when speaking to grown folk? ANd since when are pleats out? Not everyone is a skinny-ass POS.

One of those guys that thinks he knows all...

In his shoe video he called a faux suede / tassle loafer Kenneth Cole a 'classic style'. Jesus.

But it is fun to watch the blind lead the blind.

for the most part I'd say his free advice isn't harming anyone. Also, it seems his target market isn't men who are shelling out a rather respecatable sum of money to look good, although he charges 1500 dollars for a one day "makeover" for a man. That's an atrocity on levels I can't even begin to comprehend.

His advice is pretty bad. The men he "helped" would be better off saving that money, coming to SF, learning stuff, then spending that money on apparel and footware (that isn't square toed).

I don't think anyone who allows their client to button all 3 buttons on a suit is qualified to given solicited advice.
