    I disagree. I think the little nuisances add to the charm

    It looks more like he is just wearing his older, but shorter, brother's seconds. If he's going for the TB or Italian dandy look it doesn't seem to be very close at all. There's a fine line and he's so far over he can't even see it anymore

    +2. Try to do what El Argentino did. Once you can do that successfully, then try the gadgets. For example- lose the matched tie/socks; buy khaki colored socks; wear them with khaki pants of the right length.

    Not that this is the beat on Liam thread, but you do keep putting up the fits.

    belt is still ugly

    why are you wearing a cardigan over a heavy vest?

    only leave one vest button undone

    tie clashes with the casual vibe

    shoes ugly (are they a clarks knock off?) and are too close in shade to the pants

    try to take your photos without flash and in natural light

    Banana republic. This is a result of a lot of wash and wear they were practically yellow when I bought them.



    1) they're not quite as short as they look, about half of that is my hands in my pockets, and I usually am wearing desert boots that cut off higher. I started wearing my pants shorter because I got sick of my shoes catching on them.

    2) cardigan and vest is a no-no? I see that so often up here I figured it was normal. thanks for the heads up. I'll probably keep layering though, I'm always effing freezing.



    Thats why i put them up ;)




    knit wool tie =/= casual?

    shoes are real clarks, and I was worried about the color. thank you.

    can't do natural light. I'm only ever home before about 7am, when there is no real light during the winter, or after 11.

    revised. sorry for pic quality but the missus has the camera today.

    same shirt and cardigan, swapped out the short chinos for a pair of longer cords, desert kahns for desert boots. lost the tie, but I refuse to change my socks.

    hat will be coming off as soon as my hair is laying down flat.

    some of Liam O's fits look similar to stuff I was wearing 2-4 years ago

    My Stark needs two buttons undone. And two or three on top.

    Evidence suggests you are both still wearing your strides ridiculously short. Peewee Herman was a cartoonish character on a kids' TV show, not someone to be emulated in real life.

    well that would be because it's a sweater, and not a vest!

    Yeah - for a vest, only bottom button is left undone.

    I wouldn't agree with this at all. There is no reason a person should not leave as many buttons unfastened as they want provided it does not look ridiculous. Below is a vest, and in my opinion, it looks perfectly acceptable with two buttons undone. I didn't get a ticket from the fashion police if that is any indication.
