This would be fine if it weren't such a load of regurgitated bullshit that you've apparently -- and unfortunately -- fallen victim to. All you've done here is string a bunch of buzz words together in a way we're seen done ad nauseum on #menswear blogs and AAAC. It's ultimately empty and meaningless. There is no such thing as "classic" clothing or "stuff that lasts" to any significant degree more than most everything else. Sorry to burst your bubble.
The only word you're missing here is "timeless" -- which also doesn't mean shit.
Who hacked Stanley's account!
I like that sweater, CP.
Didn't take it as rude, not trying to look older either. I don't really spend time with people my age anymore, and I think my sensibilities reflect that, for good or ill.
Read the wiki article. I think you're calling me gay, and I'm not sure whether that's a compliment or insult. If that's not what you're trying to say, I'm utterly mystified.
I'm pretty generally compliant, and I've never had problems making friends or being sociable (I wouldn't be able to run a cigar shop if I couldn't). Whether its my wardrobe, demeanor, or both, people tend to think of me as diligent, responsible, and mature (or OCD, stuck up and boring if they don't like me). i get more job offers than i know what to do with and the only thing keeping me from working more hours is the lamentable need to sleep.
And I have to say the words unique and rebellious have, to my knowlege, never been used to describe me. I'm not insulted, but I find it very strange that you have that impression of me.
I've not fallen victim to anything, and you've not burst a bubble. I don't read menswear blogs, and I'm not really inclined to take the opinion of bloggers too seriously to begin with. By classic, I mean work appropriate. If I have money for clothing, its going towards a professional wardrobe that makes me employable, not an ed hardy shirt that will get me laid for the two weeks before it's dbag material. I've never been interested in looking cool or fashionable, I generally don't on the few occasions I've tried, and I just prefer to look respectable.
For the record, I only post work clothes on here. On the rare day off I get, I'm generally dressed more like this, assuming I have a reason I absolutely MUST put on pants and leave the house.
No, it was a compliment. The protagonist is a stylish, rake-ish dude in the 80's with what I remember as a similar style. Amazing book, too.
Best look I've seen from you...
@noob, thanks for clearing that up
@sutch TYVM. You have an epic beard.
Yep. Easily the best fit yet.
Excusing my newness around here, but I have seen all you MC Casual fits and by far my favourite
The rest has been dreck.
This is your best fit BY FAR, Liam! You look comfortable and not awkward, and you look your age. And believe it or not, it's not too far off from business appropriate, either.
Tan oiled or Sand? I am leaning towards the Tan for a little versatility and transition from Spring/Summer to Fall. Will wear Chinos and jeans..Thoughts? Thank You..
