    I know there has been some love/hate debate over these in varying respects but I like 'em both :fonz:

    I know at least one Senior Member who would approve Parker's fingerless gloves.

    Burn the Levi's because of their dad-jean color, and replace them with more honest, much less processed, denim. Then we'll talk.

    Ok, actually the rest has potential.

    Light jeans will make a comeback, and they're not a cardinal sin - but I'd agree in this case you'd better err on the darker side.

    Hah! I actually changed out of darker 505's just so there would be a greater sense of definition between the coat and the jeans. Oops. First instinct is the best, I suppose.

    Dig: I think you can ignore the feedback above. The jeans could be a bit darker, but the color is fine as-is. If anything, the jacket looks a bit boxy. Is there any room to suppress that waist?

    I don't mean to pile on you Diggsy as the overall outfit is a fine weekend look. The jacket is a bit boxy as suggested, and this may be due to the proportions being off. Look how low the pockets and lower button are. It looks like a longer jacket has been over-aggressively shortened., either by you or the previous owner of you thrifted it.

    What belt buckle did you use to make that belt?

    Looks like a quick release buckle - you know - for when you need to drop trou in a BIG hurry.
