I don't know about you guys, but I love this look. It is True Religion, I think and I love the Converses. What do you all think?

Not my style, must say, but I have seen worse.

Not my style either. Definitely needs something else in it woven.. maybe a tan v-neck sweater, something with a strong pattern, and the jeans are just way too flared. It's too boring at the moment. Needs a little more 70s flare (not in the jeans).

Ditto.

It's really horrible. It's basically just thrown on without any consideration what actually looking in a mirror and thinking about how he looks and how uncoordinated his "˜look' is.

Sinners get all the fun. I dislike this particular outfit though...

I hate it when one collar droops way below the other, but I think it looks ok. I wouldn't wear it.

It's so LA, the traditional uniform of the unstylish and I can't stand it more when the jacket is paired with a T-shirt as well. Saw some joker in malibu wearing his uniform this weekend.

I do like the wide stripe pattern of the top - I own many tees (both L/S and S/S) as well as sweaters with some sort of horizontal stripe pattern.

As far as the rest of the look - definately 'LA-dated'.

Exactly, I coordinate textures and colors so the whole thing pops and if you can do your thing without looking like a page out of the bloomingdales catalog then props to you. I like the T if it's say a V neck and the sneaks if they're something like the suede jv chucks, not the trendy shit everyone wears. My buddy sometimes even wears a wife beater under his blazer but he can pull it off. Hell I often do the opposite of what everyone else does like rock my Lakers T from retro sport after they lost in the playoffs

In addition, he doesn't match her! WTF is up with all these guys dressing like they rolled out of bed while their dates actually dress up in dresses? If he would have tried to match her style of clothing, it would have worked out a lot better.

The chick's kinda ugly, and that's the surest and fastest way to ruin any outfit. So all our commentary and suggestions are in vain - I'm afraid there's no hope for this guy.

I don't like the outfit either - and the girl looks like she's either suffering from slightly too many barbituates or one of those "about to blink" pictures that make you look like you have lazy eye.
