    please tell me what fit/style/wash those jeans are, thats exactly what I wanted.

    PS looks good, I like the way the suspiciously clean urinal brings out the crisp white shirt.

    you look like a douchebag. sunglasses = awful. belt = awful. pants are an ugly color, etc.

    gnatty8 your stuff is good most of the time but a lot of the 'casual' fits with a tie have some really questionable color combinations. its really just too much.

    Who would have thought a pair of wayfarers, brick cords and a tweed SC were so controversial...

    It's not controversial, it just doesn't look good. Whereas the minimalism of El Argentino is good.

    Looking down your nose at the camera doesn't help the overall douchiness either. Nor does wearing sunglasses inside even if it's just for the pic.

    Haha - isolated bathrooms in smaller buildings = cleaner facilities.

    GAP denim is their skinny fit in raw selvedge from maybe two years ago. It's actually not produced anymore, as they've changed to a one-wash model of worse quality fabric - SW&D Groupthink has only really approved this jean from Gap ever.

    The missus took that. She's a foot shorter than me. Just walked in the door, hence the glasses.

    Fair point though.
