    This is a weird outfit, I guess. Thousand-yard stare is a result of me thinking I could do the selfie first and then drink coffee.

    It has patch pockets and a pretty relaxed cut. The fabric is wool/silk/linen

    "The" colour wheel?

    There are an infinite number of colour wheels. Brown exists on an infinite number of those colour wheels, but the number of colour wheels on which brown is not found is an infinite multiple of the number on which it is.

    "Colour wheel" is a bogus and misleading concept which bears no relation whatsoever to the physiology of human colour perception.

    There, I said it.

    I doubt this fit will be well liked but it got a thumb from me. However, I would have preferred a very light blue shirt.

    Also slightly odd that you have used a collar pin on a BD. But that's a very minor nitpick.

    I gave it a thumb even though there are parts I have major issues with. The trousers and the solar pin, for instance. However the idea intrigues me even though the execution was a bit off.

    Why thanks, man. Much appreciated. :cheers:


    No I was making fun of you, dood.

    I do like black shoes though, just no more than brown or burgundy or.....


    Glad you were able to get that off your chest, but I dont think that it has much to do with the point I was getting at. :)

    My last fit was well received so I thought I'd buck the trend a bit and post something possibly godawful! Pitti-tastic pose and exploding pocket square included.

    Alright, so we know you like the GQ look. And for what it's worth, outside of the shoes, this is probably the closest you've gotten to capturing that. But there is a reason you often see models in the process of buttoning: the jacket is too tight to actually button. And this is fine, for what it is (fashion forward), but it's something that's really only going to look good in a single moment, assuming you don't walk around in the process of buttoning.

    In this case, I get that you have on a sweater and a vest, so buttoning the jacket is probably unreasonable. But I think that perhaps your motivation for getting many of your jackets suppressed beyond fitting is that you want that look...a look that really isn't possible to achieve while also functioning like a semi-normal human being going throughout their daily routine of walking, talking, eating, and pooping.

    I like it.

    You honestly look way better without the shaggy haircut and scraggly beard. This is a good look for you.

    I don't know about you Clag, but I generally take off my jacket completely to poop.
