    Not a good look. Everything looks like it is about to fall off.

    The avatar does not offend me. I'm a pretty liberal minded guy.

    As to the look. Strikes me as most appropriate if one is ~ 18-25 and very tall and thin. Since I am none of the above, it does not work for me. Also, I would lose the tie.

    I think the pants are awful, the pockets are bulging out badly. The shoes are no good, at least what I can make out. On the positive side, I like the colour scheme.

    This is one of the few times where somebody claims to be a hot woman doesn't get deluged by responses from horny, pimply teenagers.

    My 2 cents on the picture:

    - Hate the pants. They look way too big and baggy.
    - From what I can see of the shoes, I don't like them.
    - I like the idea of the vest and the shirt and tie (including color scheme), but why is the shirt collar out over the vest?
    - Sleeves are rolled up too far and in too anal a way.
    - I really dislike that wrist band thing.

    So overall, I like the concept of the outfit, but I fault it for its poor execution.

    Oh man, those pants are tragic. Obviously they were designed for shoplifters, so they could easily fit a plethora of LV handbags in their trousers. The whole look doesn't work, just imagine walking down Park Ave with an outfit like that; even New Yorkers would stare.

    As I look at the pants again, I can only think of one thing: "Stop: Hammer Time."

    Sorry Lexy, but it fails from the waist down. I'd like to see the vest a bit more fitted as well. Color and fabric are just right for spring, though. And truly, I'm pleased that you thought enough of our taste to ask, or at least to drop us a hint.

    Alexis: Welcome. STUNNING avatar. Can't say I like that particular outfit, because I don't think it fits the model well, and I'm not a big fan of the monochromatic look. But I completely agree on vests, and am definitely a sleeve roller. Makes people think I'm working hard. Â [​IMG]

    Well... I suppose if "Alexis" is using Sandy's Jpeg for her avatar, (Do a right click on the avatar and check out properties...) then you can use Jenny's Number. [​IMG] JJF

    If I ever chose to use an avatar that showed my face, it probably would not be titled "Bic."


    Welcome to the board, Alexis.
