    I think Rob looks great. While the shirt has a contrast collar, something about the collar roll and fit gives it a casual vibe which jives with the chinos.

    very neutral on this. Kinda looks like you're wearing a pair of danskos.

    Look, all we can do is take the photos you post and comment on them. In this particular set of photos, you look like you're wearing a super-fitted shirt with sorta looser jeans. It lacks balance as it is shown. I have no problem with the jeans, the shirt would make me look like I have jaundice, but would probably fit me. BB ESF right? Pretty much all I own. You look like you work out some so, bang, tighter fit.

    Your other fits have been pretty solid. This one wasn't so much. Something seemed off so I commented on what I saw.

    WTF 36 C? Wasn't it the winter from hell three weeks ago? Fit looks fine to me though.


    Lazy day at work, still playing with the blue/grey/brown palette, but a bit more saturated and more pattern. Too many shiny fabrics for my taste though.

    They're a '47 501. That's not a "loose" jean by any means. I think it fits him immensely well.

    again, talking balance between top and bottom, I was fine with the fit of each item individually (i don't like that particular color shirt, but that's personal).

    Contrast collars suck. Unless you're Gordon Gekko. Or a subordinate. Then they're acceptable.


    I can't get over the fact that it looks like you're wearing a ladies jacket and clogs.

    If you force me to guess, I would say that you ended up using the sink.

    Am I right?

    • Perimeter plantings in back yard give fit a nice, suburban feel.
    • Stone retaining wall a respectful nod to early Incas.
    • Deck material looks just about right for clog dancing.
    • Due South is probably left in the photo, in case you get lost in the yard.
