    Interesting, thanks! At today's price of gold though I'd imagine some other material might be more appropriate. I wonder if cuffing them would give the bottom of the trousers a bit more rigidity.

    The way I see it, is a bentley is a car you drive yourself whereas a rolls is a car you are driven in. Also, the exclusivity of Bentley has been lost, imo. When they started making vehicles in the same price range as some top of the line mercedes you started seeing a lot more of them and now they are back to being a dime a dozen.

    I don't like when it isn't wide enough to cover the collar points when looking dead-on. Something I never thought about until mafoofan brought it up somewhere.

    Not judging the fit because of the stance, but all else looks garish and tacky.

    These are awful. They completely ruin an otherwise interesting look.

    I think the whole thing is kind of awful. The ensemble looks like "guy from Staten Island pimpin it up in the cit-ay".

    I agree. Anden's looks tend to either be really good or really bad. This one is really bad. As, I am afraid, is Southernstyle's. Sorry.

    I think it could be pulled off. The pants are interesting, (note "interesting" is far from "good") though they could use some cleaning up and the top is conservative/safe enough. I think if he lost the sunglasses and had a proper haircut the look would be far more appealing. If he was a tanned, long-haired Italian dude I think the fit would be more endearing and rakish than guido and affected (as it is now).

    Aren't they both, roughly, in the same league? :puzzled:


    Yes, this is why I don't wear a watch. What really needs to be done is: To buy a thin-faced watch which can slip under. Tie is less annoying, but sometimes you can ruin the dimple/shape of the knot (shock, horror! :eek:).

    I don't agree with them being dime a dozen, but I agree with you're overall sentiment here.

    This is not bad at all; I like the colour palette. Like someone else said (however hysterically), I would prefer a light blue/white dress shirt/button-down over, what I presume is, a chambray/linen. I even don't mind the rolled up trouser trend here. Well done! :) (Love the shoes, which I am presuming, to be what I think they are! :p)
