    Nice jacket, but tell the paparazzi to get a telephoto lens. Wait a minute. Are those jeans? No wonder you're so far away.

    I understand that most people here have a fairly developed sense of style. Along with that comes a fairly long list of pet peeves. I for one dislike pointy toed shoes. Despite that, I do occasionally see people who make them look good. They are few and far between, but they do exist. I may be wrong, but I get the impression that some of you feel that no one could ever pull off your pet peeves. If I'm wrong, we may want to consideration those exceptions and what in particular makes them acceptable. I have no intention of ever buying a pair of pointy toed shoes, but I'd like to be able to articulate why I don't like them and how I feel one could wear them well. Again, I'd love to see a sockless challenge, a baseball hat challenge, a tie and no jacket challenge, etc. I would love to see how everyone performs in the face of their pet peeves. [​IMG]

    I hate the sleeves of sports jackets and blazers pulled up. Please don't make me do this...

    Pretty much perfect weather today. Spent the entire day grading math projects. Yellow seersucker pocket square, if it's not clear.

    i have pet peeves, but i know they are pet peeves, and i dont take points off of someone elses fit because i have a personal peeve with something. things can look great, even if its not something i would ever wear. i think that point is missed on a lot of people, who think, "if i dont like a particular type of thing = looks bad."

    You think this is prevalent in clothing circles, try the music world. How many people do you know who claim that [insert genre/artist/whathaveyou] "isn't music"?

    It's sad, but the world is filled with small-minded people.

    I'm always disappointed when the clothes-minded have closed minds.

    I am very tired of the thought process all too common these days that leads someone to think that since they like vanilla and you like chocolate that your favor to chocolate disrespects and threatens their favor of vanilla.

    It is widely accepted to think this way about sports teams but even there it should have limits.

    Funny you should mention that, pointy shoes are one of my pet peeves. I know they're generally frowned upon here, but my feet are quite small and pointy shoes make them seem a bit longer, creating better balanced proportions IMO.

    Love your tumblr by the way, now that's a style that I could never pull off! Very inspiring though.
