    Random question, what is a break?

    A break in the line of trousers. Basically, a fold that is caused by them touching the top of your shoes or, god help you, the ground.

    Are you a skin, Get Smart? You need only a sweater or a bomber jacket to finish off a skin ensemble in that pic.

    I used to run around in those circles for about 12 years, but am now, as they say, "retired"

    always a bit of 5 o'clock shadow, and careless, 'run your fingers through it' length hair

    i don't mind being cleanshaven and having my hair closely cropped, it actually looks quite flattering on me. i just don't like having to mess with hair products and taking the time to shave all the time.

    I hate pastel colours, and red. I simply can't get away with wearing them.
    never wear crew-necked t shirts
    every button-down shirt I have has something that makes it "special" or different, I don't wear "plain" clothes, I always like to have shirts with details, designs, or colors that make them stand out
    I wear "simple" outfits, I like to let the clothes speak for themselves and almost never layer.
    I love collars, if a shirt doesn't have a collar it better either be a v-neck or a sweater with a neck.
    I like a clean, fitted and sophisticated style with certain details that force it to be "streetwear".

    - No jackets without a pocket square, except at funerals.
    - No tassels of any shape or form
    - No sandals, ever.
    - No white socks except with work boots
    - No predistressed denim

    -There are stacks more. I'm such a PITA about clothes.


    So, no sandals to the beach or barbeque ?
    No white socks with sneakers ?

    - I go for simple, classic looks
    - Never wear a crew t-shirt under a buttonfront shirt. A v-neck is the only option for me.
    - Instead of wearing a short sleeve buttonfront shirt, I'd rather wear a long sleeve shirt, but with the sleeves rolled up.
    - Fit is more important than quality, with the exception of denim where I must have both.
    - Clothes should be an extension of my personality, but my style is constantly evolving

    Precisely. I tired of the overuse and improper use of sandals by many others when I was in college, such that I can't tolerate them any further. Besides I am not much of a beach guy -- usually in boat shoes on a boat watching the people on the beach. Grey socks with my one pair of sneakers -- as it is I only bought them last month, which is the first pair I've owned in a decade.

    regards,
    Huntsman

    I only wear things I love which have in turn been carefully edited.
    I try to be as versatile as I can with my wardobe and dress for the seasons.
    I exclusively wear thinner socks and have gotten away from white (except thin white uniqulo ribbed socks love those).
    If I have to think about whether something works I won't wear it.
    Never leave the house without the smell good.
    I always stay fly even when I'm around the house.

    I try to buy things that wont go out of style for a long time (i.e. no superstacked or superskinny jeans).

    Unless I'm wearing a crew neck shirt on top, I always wear an undershirt.

    I'll give up my sandals when you pry them from my cold dead toes.
