    No - dust on the lens, I should think.

    The sneakers don't work, obviously.

    Above that, the colors are nice. What seems to be an unconstructed linen jacket is good-looking. But everything is a bit sloppy.

    +1000....when i see a popped collar the word "jackass" immediately comes to mind

    QFT. As I passed a bar the other day on my way home from work, a guy exiting stepped out right in front of me. He had on a white polo under a pink polo, both collars popped. The fact that I repressed my immediate urge to "accidentally" shove him is a testament to my upbringing.

    If this guy just dropped the collar and put the laces back in his Chucks, it would work so much better.

    No degree of coat tailoring can revive material intended for a dog bed.

    No one is bothered by the T-shirt over button-up shirt look?

    Wait, you smell that?
    that's a pretty tight look. Great color combo. Popped collar or not. I'm not so sure that it's a t-shirt rather than a sweater over the polo.

    They sell Chuck's now without laces. I'm not sure if this guy had regular Chucks and ditched the laces, but many shoe stores now carry the lace-less variety (I'm assuming the shoe is constructed so the shoe doesn't just slip off).

    Does anyone know where he might have acquired the jacket (or the pants for that matter)? I wouldn't mind picking up something similar.

    When I see saddle shoes - 1950's girl comes to mind, not prep.

    This is the sort of person who gets hit by one car that throws his body into another car.

    soo true.

    The purpose of trying to look nonchalant is to look nonchalant, not to look like you're trying to look nonchalant. Right?

    Right-on my brother. Statements as profound as this should not go unnoticed.

    Is it me or your shoes runs way too big; I can see a 1/4" space between the your heel and the spine of the shoes.

    My God. There's a photo floating around the web with a guy wearing THREE popped-collar polos. This is getting out of hand - like razor technology.

    +1 to having laces and unpopping the collar will make it look better. to me it looks like a sweater over the shirt.
