    no alleviation needed. to death with stacks; they're just not for me. fucks with the silhouette. And my style verges more towards tailored, so stacks dont jive.

    I'm 6'2ish and more than 50% of me is legs, so I'm not sure if hobbit legs is an accurate assessment. like I said, I've started to go for pants with a higher rise in order to balance out my top and bottom. but different strokes for different blokes!

    Ok, but right now you look like steve erkell. Those boots would look nice with some stacking over them; jeans with no break look kinda weird, especially on your frame and with a high rise. Even trousers with a reasonable break would look pretty cool. Also, I gotta say, I really hate the color of that sweater, and I think I'd feel the same way about the shirt if I could see it better, particularly under the knit. If you stole SVBs pants, let them stack on the boots, and put on a white OCBD (and burned the sweater), this would look totally awesome and be absolutely 100% Kent$$ steez. It's like you almost hit a home run, but then it nailed the foul post thing and some asshole caught it.

    I'm going to be the nerd who points out that a ball that hits the foul pole is ruled a home run. But point taken.

    I'm guessing he had to wear the jacket and tie to the court appearances and depositions.

    I almost called it a "field goal," so I don't really feel too ashamed over here. Leave it to baseball to make itself less interesting. I think they should play it in a squash court.

    then shouldn't it be called the home run pole instead?

    i guess we'll just have to agree to disagree, synthese. I do concede, however, that I wish the sweater's color had more depth and variation. oh well, can't complain for a 4 yr old urban outfitter purchase.

    and sorry, I don't see the erkell vibe.

    It's actually called a "passant pole."

    Pants are just H&M, nothing special. Also I guess I should clarify "site inspection" for me means meeting a client at a property, boots are appropriate but I try to look somewhat like a lawyer if I am meeting the client for the first time too. I deal with a lot of property disputes. It does result in some top/bottom disparity but whatever.
