    Listen. Texas woke up this morning and punched Wikipedia in the face. One of the great things about being a Texan is that we get to be....very Texan. I'm sure they rest of America finds it annoying, but they aren't Texas, so it doesn't matter. Works out for everybody.

    Getting this thread back on topic, here's a "Well fuck, I'm from Texas" I sported a few years back. That is absolutely an orphaned suit jacket worn with a t-shirt. It is not something I would do again. The next time I was on TV, I did better.

    (jacket is Alexander McQueen, shirt is Urban Outfitters, hat is...dunno...bought it back home a few years back).

    After an unintentionally dumb day thrifting yesterday, wanted to remind myself I at least added a couple things to my wardrobe. Jacket not pictured as it's a no-name and not thrifted.

    yes, you're right this is a more egg-shape (which was fine with me, I do that with Damir stuff often) and still fit comfy. but normally what i'd do is wear with a tee and sneakers, and not roll the cuffs up so it just drops onto shoes. and of course a cap

    Is that jacket from one of your suits? I think I recall seeing that before...

    Why not just wear parachute pants and get it over with? You know you want to.

    The jacket looks okay - although it's hard to see much more than the pattern. But the tie is just bad: texture, colours, knot - and it doesn't work with the jacket at all in terms either of colour or of width relative to the lapels. But then again, I'm not sure what it would work with.

    Nope. Almost certainly the holes will close up when he washes it.

    I hope so. But those holes look huge because they're at the edges of the pin.

    Guys, c'mon. Do we need to do this again? He's showing another way to approach wearing suits. You don't have to like it, but we also don't need to pillory him. He has a different aesthetic and that's that.
