    Speak for yourself.

    My very educated guess is that he was fired for performance reasons. What he was buying and merchandising was not selling for either store, and at the end of the day, it is all about selling and making a profit.
    His dress and appearance I am sure have nothing to do with his firing, it was his merchant abilities. They sure miss Darrel Osborne, who in his own right was a very flamboyant dresser, but he was a damn good merchant.


    Exactement...

    They're not a charity ...

    If you buy shit nobody wants to be seen dead in it , you will get fired...

    They don't care about his internet fame and cult status if he doesn't bring in the money..

    Internet status?

    Does it matters on $$ world?

    Having a following is different than bringing mony in the till.

    What are the 5-10 rules? From what I can see the only major rule broken is trouser length, and maybe that often his shirt cuff and collar buttons are undone. if you look at the pictures above from the knees up I think he looks pretty good.

    yeah, but the rule that is broken is done so in such an outrageously conspicuous and jarring manner that it has a bigger impact than breaking five rules more inconspicuously - and so, it ends up being gimmicky.

    but that's probably exactly what he's going for, and we need at least a few experimental, attention-seeking peacocks to keep things interesting. so nicky has my support.

    regardless of his job performance, I would generally like his looks if he could just get pants that got within an inch of his bloody shoes.

    That high wader shit has got to go.

    Agreed, at first it just plain annoyed me, but now I think it's more to do with his cuff size to height ratio. I.e. he needs a smaller cuff!

    ^^^ lol +1

    This is not a knock on Wooster, but what's strange about that look is that it involves cutting your pants in the "highwater" or "floods" look, but with a gargantuan cuff. This is where the it becomes circus-like to me. That tan suit he's wearing might have a two-inch cuff on a pair of slim fit trousers. I just can't get accustomed to that - perhaps it would look less strange to me if the trousers were not cuffed. . .

    Edit: JapanAlex, good to know I'm not the only one :)

    Yeah, short men look bad-ass with no cuffs! I mean, 80% of the time fashion comes down to proportions, cuts, lines, etc. This can be applied to everything"”how you use a hairstyle to complement features, etc. I think, if he had a cuff at all, a 1"-1.5" cuff would be all he could pull off, although why does he even need a cuff?!

    If anyone else was wearing the shit he's peapocking around , you will get slaughtered by the SF crowd...

    The pants are too short, the shoes are disgusting and so on....

    More of the combos are fugly except the most conservative ones...

    The guy is not that creative , he just reject the rules and wear idiotic combo to shock...

    That is not creative just attention seeking..

    I've been looking at the NM offerings in San Francisco, which he presumably had something
    to do with. From the selection for the past 5 to 7 years.,I would not buy anything. . Admittedly,
    I am a style fundamentalist, preferring classical Ivy-derived clothing. PaulStuart, pre Phineas
    Cole, is a good guide.

    That NM has a pretty good Kiton section though.

    Yes. It does. But, at least before the Mitchells took over, Wilkes Kiton was more my style.
