Ah, I don't mean congruent as in matching, but as in a single story well told.
I hear you. I do like to mix and match and not have it all one look. I see some guys here that look like they stepped out of the pages of a look book--which is never what I'm going for. I like to mix in western with work wear with Japanese (whatever the hell it is they do) with business casual. Why? Because I'm sick in the head maybe.

However, today I'm reliving my military past IF in an alternative universe they issued us nice stuff.

What you're trying to say, I believe, is that one can buy good clothes but one can't necessarily buy style.

@Phullyman I’d ditch the gray tee. If you must have shirt unbuttoned, maybe some kind of tank would work better?

Full fatigue (in an alternate universe) today along with the BCGs (birth control glasses for those who never served).

I may have stayed in the Air Force if this was the uniform.

Of course you can't buy style, everyone has their own--just like taste. A homeless person has a style that I'm sure they didn't buy.

I think a a pair of aldens would’ve been better. Just seems like you’re wearing house slippers.
I suppose it depends on where he is at in the pic.

If WFH, the Niche house slippers would be the appropriate choice.
