    Put the camera higher, that way it won’t make the proportions all screwie.

    Thanks. Tomorrow.

    This was stuck in the brim of my cossack hat on a table. I'll have to figure out how to get it higher. Maybe a stack of books.

    @upr_crust it goes without saying that your exemplary style is truly "Hall of Fame" worthy. However, I really think you would benefit from a slightly looser, straighter fit pair of jeans with a higher rise.

    Thank you.

    It’s a La Portegna - Fat Carter II. I’ve had the bag for about 3 years now and have flown well over 300k+ miles with it, couldn’t be happier.

    The toe box is, I am told, a standard style for Lucchese of San Antonio - Charlie One Horse, the brand of boot that I wore today, is the off-shore branch of Lucchese. I like the boots well enough, aggressive toe box or not.

    I would, most likely, benefit from jeans with a higher rise, but, oddly enough, when last I bought a pair of jeans at Brooks Bros., I was flagellated (on AskAndy, of all places!) for them fitting too much like a pair of regular trousers, hence the tighter fit of today's Levis's. One can't please everyone . . . :).

    @upr_crust fwiw I think it's a great fit. The jeans and boots are a fantastic combo and I look forward to seeing more of your casual style in the future

    I guess this has been asked a lot, but where's that jacket of yours from?
    Looks insane.

    It will be snowing by lunchtime here in NYC, if the weather prognosticators are to be believed, so I've opted for another day of casual attire, dragging things out of the closet that haven't seen the light of day in a long while. Note that there are no photographs of my footwear - this is on purpose, as I'm wearing the single ugliest pair of hiking boots - practical, comfortable, but more unsightly
    than sin itself.

    The leather jacket, sweater, shirt, and cords are all Brooks Brothers. The cap is Paul Stuart, and the scarf is Johnstons of Elgin.

    Snow day! DC shuts down thanks to snow and impending ice storm. Barbour to the rescue.
