Look at him and SoCal. Looks like a sense of humor makes all the difference in terms of pulling something off well.

Indeed. I also think that this kind of look can work, but the socks sure are a turnoff.

I think he looks fine. The high waters aren't my thing, but I don't think that you look bad if you have them.

I'm not a fan of the pant length, but it otherwise looks good to me.

I must admit though, I like Thom Browne but I hate the uniform, if you wear Thom Browne you don't have to wear a tie of the same fabric of your suit, and pants above your ankles, chunky black wingtips, etc etc. I like Thom Browne clothes, but when you wear that uniform it shows you have no style. Socal does a good job of wearing Thom Browne and blending it in with other clothes, instead of looking like the mannequin in the window.

But aren't you missing the point of Thom Browne by not wearing his clothes as a uniform?
