    You have a very varied wardrobe. On the one hand, you have a lot of McQueen and such, on the other hand you buy stuff like this, as well as Guidi boots etc. I understand alot of your tailored stuff is for work, but do you feel like you have 3 or 4 seperate wardrobes?
    AR is likely the most eclectic baller koper on this forum. I can relate somewhat. At one point several years ago I was buying both BoO and Julius simultaneously! After wearing lot of different stuff, I decided BoO is too preppy and that Julius is too extreme for my tastes. Overtime I ended up focusing more on brands like Attachment and wjk which are closer in aesthetic to Julius, but with most of the overtly goth ninja elements removed. I noticed with my more eclectic wardrobe I was more likely to be accused of being "into fashion". But as I've become more focused, these comments have mostly disappeared. I consider this to be a good thing. Many of AR's outfits look great, but I cannot help but think that many see him and think "there's a guy who's into fashion!" Personally I prefer the clothing to blend in such that the person and clothing become one. It takes time to find what you like best. If you don't try lots of different things, you won't ever know for sure. Also, it can be fun getting to experiment with many different styles.

    I live in fucking CALGARY. For the above to be true all that is required is to not shop at Winners. Literally my entire wardrobe could be from Banana Republic, and people would say "there's a guy who's into fashion!"

    Probably 80% of the time, I dress way more conservatively than you do. My Spurr pipe legs are my most worn item of clothing, usually with Lanvins and a knit or something. A lot of the fits I post are of the "I felt like wearing something different today" variety. Right now I'm wearing TOJ DR, pocket tee, black jeans and rafstros and it's the most "out there" thing I've had on all week.

    I really don't understand the problem with having eclectic wardrobes. I'm fine with people having a streamlined and focused aesthetic but I'd personally get bored very fast. As a result, my buys are all over the place, not because I'm experimenting but because I want it to be like that.

    And the he's into fashion thing is stupid, everyone here will be labelled as such at some point (unless you're only wearing the plainest lamest basics and even then...) no biggie. It's not like it's an insult or anyhting eh. Look, there's a guy who's into architecture !

    I completely agree and feel the same way. I don't really care about having a wardrobe where everything goes together, cause I tend to get kind of bored quickly. I have a lot of workwearish clothes, "prep" stuff, and also a lot of punk influenced stuff thrown in.

    I can definitely appreciate a streamlined collection though. It's kind of cool to have something described as your own look, like "that's very uncontrol" or "that's very zissou".

    Should I invest in either one of these saddle shoes? I can't decide on which one or maybe just leave them alone.

    At first I did not like, but the black toed ones look kind of nice.

    Our Legacy 3 roll 2 blazer in English Cloth
    It would be a light blazer for S/S. But I'm concerned that the weave might be a little too distinctive: [​IMG]

    ^I'm also on the fence about that particular texture. I have an OL blazer though and can say that they do use some incredible fabrics for their suiting.



    curiously, I found a picture of that TBS model outside of the studio:
