    I like to think of it as a niche of refined
    gentlemen rebelling against the constraints
    of crony capitalism and taking advantage of
    the ills (ill-fittings) of wall street to wear flowing
    garb disguised as formalwear. the anti-fit army,
    no not even army, special ops group of beautiful
    fabrics and elegant style with a Wagnerian
    tradition-shattering take...

    In the [true] spirit of this thread (more talk, less pics) and in remembrance of our dear senior member KB, today I wore:

    Navy PRL woven linen jacket, unlined with white buttons (3b, side vented)
    Navy/white butcher stripe PRL Regent custom fit shirt with contrast [white] collar
    Raw 501s
    Shades of blue & gray striped BR socks
    AS Bristols
    Tan Italian leather belt from PF
    No square
    Caravelle automatic watch
    PRL boxers

    Business lunch at Manzo in Eataly (Flatiron)

    Tagliata & Arugula dishes were good, even tho they ceased offering the Porterhouse at lunch. Had 2 single malts neat and am on a bottle right now.

    Mmmmmm. Shaven Parmigiano-Reggiano is a godsend.

    Which one of you followed me for four blocks and then complimented me on my shoes?

    I'm dead serious. I'll shoot you a PM with some pics later. It's a $400660 (actually) shirt still with tags.

    Nice. I'm wearing CK boxers, black ill-fitting Adidas shorts, white with black trimmings Rocawear athletic socks and a pair of Grenson Masterpiece loafers. This is everything, and this is the truth.

    I have always maintained my disgust of people wearing Adidas gear with other brands. Firebird suit with Foams? No. Firebird Tee with Pumas? No. Stappit.

    I see you're still a little sore about that shoe/mullet analogy I made over in MC Casual. I'd take it back if only it weren't so damned funny.

    Socks are navy, by the way. :teach:

    Yes, it's exactly that. After seeing how you dress, how could I not care tremendously about your opinion on my boots ?

    Not sure if this is WTFAYWRN, MC Casual, SW&D or otherwise so I'll just let them fly. Please be curt with your thumbs:

    I'm a bit more rotund due to my noontime intake, but I would agree, it is a great warm-weather jacket by my favorite brand. Thanks!

    Couple comments: jacket seems to fit well; sleeves a tad short but maybe because it's linen?; denim with navy jacket is often too low-contrast (that's the case here); I wouldn't button the jacket when I wear jeans; I can't see much of the shoes but I'm not sure I'd like them
