    Who decided that the event needed a big dose of chest hair?

    For a second there I thought I was on the London Lounge . . . (from Mr. Alden - "I fundamentally do not accept dress without a proper piece of neckwear and modern trends that preclude it in favor of bare necks and blooming chest hairs are doomed by the very ugliness of grammar they decline"), then I realized it was Style Forum after all.

    I'm going to quote my wife on this one . . . "It looks like a very earnest gathering, more academic, people with a common interest, rather than a show off . . ."

    That or iron the opening just above the second button to v a little higher. It's a little too guido IMO.

    I couldn't care less for the stigma several have already hinted at regarding LK's limp wrists. What really sucks is that I think he got it from here:

    http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...0&postcount=36

    LK has a nice suit. No, LK has a great suit and wears it very well. The rest seems extremely affected though, dandy shit and all. I mean, when you consciously adopt manerisms, hard to imagine anything being remotely natural anymore...Hate to burst anyone's bubble, but LK doesn't come off as the kind of guy who wears a suit everyday. I believe you can tell, even looking at a still picture; on the other hand, our man psg has a great jacket, wears it very well, and looks totally at ease doing so.

    Perhaps LK should spend less time collecting shagreen, genuine tortoishell, baby seal skins and whatever the hell else he figures fuels his status as an eccentric and concentrate on writing; his dating advice thread is some of the funniest shit I've ever read.

    You seem to be tilting at windmills. He's posted several pictures of himself wearing things other than suits. And I think a certain degree of affectedness is part of the look, while "natural" is likely not high on his list of priorities.

    Hmmm, now I am wondering what people think I look like/who I am, based on my posts.

    I thought you were a Haitian Dule Hill?

    ^^ Labelking has a great personal style that appears to be uniform throughout his dress, mannerisms and hobbies. I am suspicious you are employing iconoclasm for it's own sake. While some of SF's more esteemed members may deserve a push off their respective pedestals, Labelking is not one of them.


    Great photos though, and everyone looked really sharp. I wish I could have been there! Hoping to see some of you DC guys soon.

    I have to disagree. LK was the standout of that room, no question.

    According to google image, you may look like this:

    or this

    or maybe this

    or who knows, could be you here

    This one seems less likely IMO

    Those elbow patches are awesome.

    It looks like you all had a great time!

    I am imagining LK walking around the room up to different conversations and going "Pfft." then flicking his hair with his wrist and walking away. Dunno why. Great suit LK, btw [​IMG]

    matt, that's a killer jacket. These pictures have removed from my mind any thought that you looked similar to matt lauer.

    What does it matter whether he wears a suit everyday? I don't think LK makes any effort to hide that his whole shtick is a conscious aspiration towards his tastes...I mean, he revels in affecting this sort of persona. He wears what he likes, he scowls at the camera because he wants to...how is it disingenuous to behave how one wishes to behave? Your right in that he doesn't look "at ease" like PSG but it's my impression that is his intent. He comes off like a weird guy, he looks like a weird guy, I have no reason to believe he is not a weird guy, thus, he is as he presents himself.

    LK is the great payoff of this thread. [​IMG] Rock on with your limp-wristed, dandyfied self!
