    Pants are a heavy canvas material but I can see what you are saying. Any example of a pant you are thinking of? Are you thinking wool for texture or drape? Sport coat material is a heavy flannel. I have paired the shawl with a slouchy pull-over and it does look good. Will photograph next time I do.

    yo ken i want to like it so hard, but i agree that the khaki pants kind of stand out, need some grey or brown wool. also, i think you need a more aggressive hair style if you're going to be rocking a shawl. in general i'm jealous as fuq of your wardrobe though man.

    Pants are olive but yeah I'll have to try some wool pants. I have a pair of brown flannels that I will break out once it starts to cool down. I'm working on growing out my hair. Thanks man!

    Dude... what happened to your jeans here? That's the most unfortunate tuck/half-tuck I've ever seen. :(

    re pants: I personally would choose a lighter to mid grey (heather ish) wool pant. like tropical wool for drape and texture so it flows a little...or maybe heavier but not stiff so you can wear for winter. eg, nonnative, needles etc - brands you already like - all make pants like that I'm sure. could even go cropped nonnative pants with heavy socks and those vans. for the top - I'd go for like a fuzzy mohair pullover in like navy to slightly lighter blue. but that completely changes your outfit :p - am forming it with shoes and shawl. your nonnative robe thing might work with that... dif pants tho for sure.

    Well... hah, it's the boot actually. A regular slim jean won't really go over the boot, and I feel like a douche if I go full tuck so I've kind of been letting the hem of the jeans fall where they may.

    Here's why I'm thinking it's not working, because the styling shot is weird but not awful--it could be used reasonably.
    the styling shot is different from how you're doing in the following, important ways:
    the pants in the styling shot are weirder, more (seemingly) haphazard on the boot shaft, not half-cuffed.
    The predistressed denim might be OK if your shirt matched up w/ the vibe.

    An outfit idea (not perfect, but a little more coherent):
    those boots+jeans without cuffing (you can keep trying the bizarro half-on-half-off attempt), scoop-neck tee (a lazy answer but it's what I can come up with at short notice), weird blazer or cardigan (maybe that long cardigan that's all the rage these days)

    what's the rest of that styling shot?

    edit: oh.

    As soon as I left home, I wished I'd thrown on a scoop under the shirt. Went home, threw one on, got a better angle. Improved at all? Definitely hear you on the weird blazer or cardigan look meshing better though.

    I can't even comprehend how good that kg fit is, one of the best IMO
