    It's got that "bad thrift store find" vibe. And I'm not sure I like the idea of your shirt collar outside your jacket collar.

    I really liked Brad Pitt's clothes and specifically the red leather jacket in Fight Club. For some reason, I dislike the red leather jacket as a separate piece, but thought the whole look of his jacket, print shirt and black pants came together well. He looked cool, tough, a little crazy, especially with the orange sunglasses. I am a 9-5 banker type and was thinking of doing a weekend look that's similar but want to use light brown in place of the red leather. I am thinking a reddish-brown leather, with a print shirt, collars over the leather jacket lapels. I won't have the ciggies or jauntiness of Pitt, but I think the whole look will be fun and different, and cool. Can I pull this off on weekends, or should I stick with my current, non-descript black leather jacket? Thanks in advance for reading this and your opinion.
    there is no way you will be able to pull it off. i would avoid it like the bitches with the clap. like its not even worth doing with two rubbers on...you just dont do it. just embrace your own style.

    Or a horrible 70s 99 cent off ebay leather jacket find vibe.

    If you're wearing pressed suits all day and want to mix it up on the weekend/after hours then start a bit safer and hold off on this way out there look that really looks like garbage on most everyone.

    one looks like a homeless person on the first day of freedom from a mental asylum. Just not right. Like My Cousin Vinny in a purple velvet suit, with tails. Thanks guys, for bringing me back down to earth.

    Is this thread a joke?

    You know he's wearing what he's wearing in the movie because the costume designer went to a thrift store and found the most ugly thing they could find to make his character look crazy..


    Mostly likely you'll end up looking like a douche.....
