    Unnecessary? Certainly.

    Hilarious? I lulzed.

    Foxtooth, we dig your hair and your 'stache. Your moose knuckle, perhaps less so. I'll give it a pass this time, because I appreciate irreverence and iconoclasm and because your inseam Bullwinkle was clearly incidental.

    Keep those fits coming.

    I have a small business, part of which is photography, so I have the opportunity to take pictures in the middle or at the end of the day. And I really shoot the clothes, which did business during the day. :)

    @VictorSFreturn

    I'm really liking your casual fits. None of this boring sport jacket with pants type thing. I like how you mix it up

    Since when is it required to wear pants with a sport jacket?

    I'm getting a strong "extra from an episode of Jeeves & Wooster" vibe from his DB fit, though it is unimpeachable on a technical level. Possibly the moustache is to blame.

    Yeah, I think navy or brown would have been better for the vest.

    Knowing that he has a BFA or MFA just reinforces my desire to have him take high quality photos.

    FT: I like nice pictures of clothes more than the clothes themselves. This is why, after seeing you use a dslr and then hearing you have several tripods and I'm assuming a number of lenses, I hope you'll put them to use at least a couple of times.

    For what it's worth, I've gotten my process down to about 6-7 minutes, including getting dressed. My tripod remains set up in the same place. I get dressed (3-4 minutes), bring a chair in (10 sec), place the camera on the tripod (10 sec). Grab the remote (5 sec). Sit and take a picture (30 sec). Check and adjust color balance (roughly...I'm not aiming for perfection); also adjust the chair slightly if necessary (60 sec). Sit and take 2-3 more pictures (60 sec). Take out the memory card (15 sec). Put away the camera (20 sec). Put away the chair (10 sec). Out the door.

    Keep in mind, I usually will have figured out what I'm wearing prior to this.

    -----
    I was late the other day and did one in under five. Maybe even under four. This one, I think.

    I hadn't even planned the outfit; I sort just grabbed items based on my gut (though I knew from experience that the jacket and those pants worked well together). Got lucky in that I don't think I had to adjust anything but exposure.

    +1 Fox adds balance to the force.

    @Claghorn what if you had masking tape X on the floor for the chair position, the blinds at a constant height, pre-programmed white balance settings for that location and time of day, and the camera plugged into a computer to upload the photo and auto-post to SF? You could do it under 60 seconds. #scientificmanagement

    That's incredible Clags. Not sure whether to be awed and/or slightly repulsed by your seemingly robotic, ruthless efficiency. So much for hrs spent to achieve a look of effortless sprezz.

    I can't even pick a tie and reasonably knot it in under 7 mins ( but then I hardly ever wear one, so each time a new adventure).

    @RecklessGent , welcome and nice debut fit. Really like the suede monks and the tie--is it ancient madder? Interested to see a fuller fit pic to see how the items integrate.
