    That's fantastic @Lorcan7. The colors are killer. :nodding:

    I have one complaint that is really minor and maybe it's just me but I notice it a lot, like @FrankCowperwood's recent fit for example. Cuffs on jeans look better to me when they are at the lowest point that they can be without creating a break in the fabric. That way they can be 100% practical as well as visually interesting. If they have an extra roll that isn't necessary they take on some percentage of a "contrived for visual interest" factor, which isn't terrible because everything is contrived, but anyway... I'm particular.

    Scanner is actually part of a MoMa exhibit called "Elevated Basics." He's standing on a platform that's suspended about 40 ft in the air and will remain standing for a week or until he collapses from thirst.

    I also salute anyone who isn't afraid to dress a little bit differently. That said, being unique doesn't preclude you from dressing like shit.

    This whole casual racism, social justice narrative is fucking exhausting. Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, "racist" comments about Asians, N-words. Who really cares. The world is a fucked up place we should all just deal with it :).

    I see what you are saying. I'm definitely cuffing for practicality and at the expense of the visual interest you mention.

    I think the extra roll or two that I'd need to eliminate a break leads to a pegged effect, which I'm not aiming for. Maybe I just don't roll them neatly enough.

    I guess there's always hemming them to a more cleanly cuffable length... But I'm a little lagnusu.

    Dude....too small everything
    This is great. White tee, sure, if you wanna tone it down. But the colours complement nicely IMHO - can't tell on phone screen but is just regular T-shirt or less generic cut/material?

    Nah, don't hem them. That's for dads.

    If there's not enough to roll a cuff when they're at full length, then just let them stack on your boots a little. If you compensate by rolling them higher then it looks like they're too short to roll, which they probably are, but you just want that rolled look. So that's why I say it looks a little contrived. But that's just my opinion. Others may differ.

    I'll have to give stacking a try.

    And I've got a pair with an inseam that's much closer to my actual measurement. I'll put those on for a fit pic soon and people can say what they think if they want to.

    Thanks. This is the Grana scoop-neck: http://www.grana.com/men-s-scoop-neck-t-shirt.html

    I'm a big fan. Soft pima cotton, noticeable but not extreme scoop. Gotta size up one from tagged, IMO.

    Feel like a crimson or burgundy t could work too -- a shade that works with green/blue as well as plays on the tone of the shoes?
