    Not bad IST. I am less excited about the shoes, look like those dress/sneaker combos. Blech.

    Rainy day, running errands before I went into NYC.

    Boots are unlaced because I was going to the tailor and I cant get my feet out of them without unlacing the top half. Not a fashion statement.

    Casual meeting at my grandfather's orto in San Diego. Yes I need a new belt.

    NYR, you look much better without your usual massive cuffs. These are just the right amount. [​IMG]

    With those ridiculous cuffs it's a definite no.

    What are you thinking man? Are you jumping on some trendy bandwagon here or do you seriously think that looks good?

    Iceman here is on a tear, ripping everyone, but I agree here. The scarf is odd, and short, and doesn't really work. The cuffs are a bit too deep. Not even sure I like cuffs, but definitely don't like these. Plus I feel that cuffs make more sense on jean with a wider leg, more 1940's 501 homage, rather than the roll that my wife does when she wants to wear her jeans with flats rather than heels.

    Aww c'mon man I've only posted a couple of times, hardly ripping in to 'everyone'. I don't want to get a rep for being negative all the time and try to hand out praise too on occasion!:D

    ^ point. My assertion was based on an N = 2, not exactly statistically significant...

    Leather and denim today. Winter seems to have returned to the south. Well, what we call winter anyway.

    Neither. Asking because I don't have jeans that fit and wasn't sure about those (they happened to be lying around because I bought them on clearance for five bucks to resell and now they were my waist size).



    Not sure I like cuffs either, they're 4 inches too long for me and too skinny to roll up on the inside. as for the scarf, I know noone else likes that scarf, but I love it. Not a sartorial choice today, it was just probably going to be cold by the time I was headed home, and the jacket I had on doesn't have much insulation.

    why would you roll denim up on the inside? just cuff them up an inch at a time. it'll take 4 rolls. done.
