    Bad fit on the shirt and jacket. Roll behined the collar, shirt collar hanging out, sleeves too long, shirt front looks all puffy like the shirt is generally too big.

    I think he stole that bowtie from a clown.

    Jacket and trouser patterns clash, in my opinion.

    Ring is gaudy as hell.

    Surely he is SF approved ...

    I was fortunate to be associated with one of great painter/designers of the last century. We had many conversations about the challenges of mixing colors, shapes and pattern. It is a real art and something that doesn't come easy even to highly experienced designers.

    This combo is a joke. The pants and jacket combo look like a train wreck. The highly styled accessories all scream "look at me" but none of them are in harmony.

    If you are going to try to make loud satorial statements, at least have each element support each others style. This looks like a grab-bag style of dress.

    ok - so now i cant even tell if you are being serious. none of those items should be worn together. at most, he should be wearing one of each on any given there ... max 2. the jacket/pants are a definite no-go. I hate longwings and gunboats, so i am biased in that regard. the yellow socks would have been better with a different pair of pants in a more casual setting.

    I could go on. Moral of the story, dont wear too many things all of which are competing for attention.

    Ish is turrible.

    details on the suit? I think that fabric would also work well for just a jacket.

    Seperately yes (except, maybe, for the bow-tie), but together they just don't work.

    I'm with you on that one... Frostbites everyone? Toeless is a great look.
    Helps you find into those narrow, elongated lasts...

    I agree that the look is unpleasant. But just to play Devil's Advocate for a moment, it seems an entirely calculated and non-accidental clash, and so the unpleasantly conflicting elements are in keeping with his intent. Which is probably to provoke comment and attention, regardless of the nature of that commentary. So while I dislike the effect, I think he probably achieved his aim when he put that combination together and as such, the outfit is a success on his terms.
