Why the "fashion" qualifier before the word "disaster"?

Larry King is beyond fashion. While you tools have to conform to the conventional dress code to appear presentable, Larry King needs to heed no such restriction.

Agreed, King is such an institution, he is above fashion.

Is it just my viewing, or does King have a huge shoulder span ( probably the reason for the inevitable braces ). It seems like he has a 24 inch shoulder to shoulder coat measurement.

He is like a short Kevin Garnett that can not jump

And thus he should know better. That Ed Hardy family photo says it all

He's skinny to the point of near emaciation. Not a huge shoulder span but extremely square shoulders. Often his trademark braces are really clip ons, and beneath his desk they are clipped onto jeans.

Simple. Don't tuck the wide end back through the knot. Begin the process any way you want, it's just a mater of not doing the final step.

He apparently hasn't bought any of his own for ages. Apparently people just keep sending him them as fan mail. He wears what he gets, and obviously doens't take it too seriously.

Ah, of course.

Is that even a style? That looks absurd.
