Is that the guy from the Paul Stuart logo?

Seriously, this is too costumey for me. Was this guy participating in some sort of period re-enactment club outing?

He looks Ok I guess.
I wouldn't wear that though - I'd feel like I was in a movie.

damn, here I thought it was going to be a shot of a guy in vintage 501 jeans, engineer boots, vintage schott perfecto, and one of those 50s 'brando' motorcycle caps while sitting on a '59 Triumph. I don't really care for this fellow's gear....not sure why exactly as I have a huge appreciation and love for vintage clothing, but he just looks like someone who could be very obnoxious to me.

The knickers make it too much of a costume. Where the heck did he get those anyway? I'm not wild about the hat, but if those were long pants with inward-facing pleats, the look would work.

If it weren't for the knickers, I'd give the outfit two thumbs up. It has a nice, country Irish look to it. Not a fan of the knickers.

I admire his courage, but I am strangely put off. Strikes me as a combination of several Tintin characters. Isn't the bike a little short for him?

Looks alright, but costume. Had he had on normal slacks in the same color it'd be a nicely put together outfit.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
