    Seriously, how much better would this have been if the jacket was brown and not the same shade of grey. Check it out.

    that guy looks great and sums up the difference between style and following rules. mafoofan's outfits might be more 'technically' correct, but this guy looks about 500x classier because of how he carries himself and his obvious stylishness.

    Not to pick on you or anything, but Teger is kind of right. You've never looked anywhere close to being that comfortable in any of your photos. You might be comfortable inside, but it doesn't show at all. Maybe you are specifically posing in way to display your bespoke items to SF, but I cannot recall anything where you looked anywhere as relaxed. The only photo that comes close is the unabashedly prep photo, and even in that there is a lot of rigidity.

    Parker is one of the few people here who looks extremely comfortable in his clothes. There is that ease that is impossible to miss in his photos, whether is wearing a vintage sack, or his bespoke chan or just 501s/OCBD. Maybe because is californian, or somethin' [​IMG] BTW, same holds true for that Elliot Richardson photo on your blog ... he somehow looks effortlessly classy in that pic.

    ps: I am still waiting for you to moderate my comment on your blog.

    Love how you gave him an 'Italian tan' as well. [​IMG]

    I think most people are just unable to pose for a photo while still looking relaxed. I am certainly one of them...

    See, now that's just boring. If he had been wearing a brown jacket for real, the photo wouldn't have generated nearly the same amount of discussion and debate than the grey-on-grey original has.

    Congrats. One of the worst poasts in MC. And keep in mind that there is currently a mismatch suit pants/mens warehouse threak going on right now in MC and yet you've beaten it handily.

    Well, that's SF's chronic syndrome - they try to make everything SF.

    I would have recolored the pants rather than the coat but that's just me. Again, I like his look but I wouldn't do it.

    Jacket would look good if it was purple. No, really.

    Maybe purple suede chaps on top of the grey flannel pants? Studded inside the cuffs as a rocknrolla tribute to Ambrosi
