Pic is as bad as ever but I'm liking the fit on these 1980s now. Belt wouldnt show if I weren't raising my arms for the pic. Selvage coin pocket doesn't bother me much.

nice as always superbobo, i think you and black cherry tap into what yohji was talking about here:
This reminds me of what Yohji said about what inspires him....he was flipping through a book of portraits in the early 20th century, farmers, railroad workers, people living in villages where it was always cold and they were wrapped up in several layers of tattered coats, the odd boy wearing a very baggy shirt that was billowing from the shoulders down. He said images like that drive his design because those people were wearing those clothes for function, as a necessity in their lives perhaps due to occupation or had to make their own clothes, rather than for the purpose of being fashionable and it reflects a very natural style that can't be faked. I always thought some of the best dressed people I saw in the States were from areas where they would not even have a clue about where Madison Avenue was, let alone follow fashion.

The cool late-Spring day version of my standard Fall outfit, with linen replacing wool:
Still feeling a bit sick, the scarf was mostly for comfort.
bobo that is a really really good fit
It's funny how the styleforum group think has assumed that because I point out some feminine aspects of the accepted styles frequented here such as men wearing skin tight jeans, or rolled up pants capri style, sockless with dress shoes, etc., that I automatically only support wearing the most masculine attire complete with a wife beater and gold chains. This is called "styleforum logic."
My message is simple. Let's keep the sexes apart. Dress like a man, not like a woman (unless you're gay or in a band.) And if you stay away from the styles that women have been using for a long time (such as skin tight jeans, capri pants, sockless, etc), you'll automatically look more masculine by default. I mean, what's the next trend for styleforum, tying your shirt into a knot?
Come on guys, it's the next big thing! It's so "stylish!"
Sockless with dress shoes is not feminine, it's typical european (and I assume preppy american) leasure look, the whole luxury loafers with a linen suit thing while wandering Venice smoking a cigarette. Rollled up pants is pretty much the same. As for fully butonned shirts it gives off a geeky vibe. In other words that outfit screams "geek on vacation" to me but I don't see anything girly in it. Sounds like you really wanted to fit a "men should be men" comments in the forum and picked something at random without pondering the implications.
saucemaster you look very pale! i guess if you've been sick..
outfit looks good though.
re: fuuma lately i have been addicted to the laceups w/ no socks thing...it's surprisingly more comfortable than i thought
I don't see how anyone can think that that looks good, it looks like you have massive hips and are wearing oversized pants from old navy.
