    [​IMG] Ralph Lauren: Shirt Sweater Shorts Brooks Brothers: Sport Coat
    Vintage photograph from the country club

    I apologize in advance if this comes off as overly critical, but this is one of the worst photos in the history of this thread. You're wearing a sport coat that is four sizes too large for you, while apparently playing golf. No one wears a blazer while playing golf. Furthermore, judging from the lack of leaves on the trees, this photo was taken in autumn or winter, and you're wearing shorts and boat shoes (again, totally inappropriate footwear for golf). Lastly, if that's a "country club", then I am Jack Nicklaus. Just look at the state of that green. This is the Jersey Shore version of prep- a fabricated persona and clothing that is three times as outrageous as it needs to be.

    Obvious solution: clothing that is four sizes too small. (Photographed with that ubiquitous powered-down robot pose, of course).

    Anyway, 'persona' seems too strong a word, here, but what's wrong with adopting a persona? I enjoy Synthese's fits very much -- as well as the attitude behind them. Everyone else seems to as well. And Zissou, unless you really are dropping anchor shortly before each fit pic, you seem to delight in a bit if the ol' *persona* yourself... [​IMG]

    All these misgivings about Harrison K apper to be running amok, toppling some perfectly hivey concepts in their wake...

    Hm.

    Every forum has its own couple of guys who are sure that they are the only ones capable of individual thought in the face of internet hivemind. It's one of my favorite flavors of troll.

    "Personas" are fine when they come with an aesthetic that makes sense As zizzou perceptively put together nothing about said fit makes sense, like, nothing at all lmao Good fits don't have to be rationalized

    You guys are obviously single-mortgage, middle-class trolls with small penors.
