    x-post from main thread again, to illustrate what I personally think of as casual clothes. Wore this to have Sunday lunch with some friends visiting from out of town. Shirt has a blue check to it, which may not be obvious in this full-length pic.

    Have really overdosed on wearing those shoes this week; will give them a rest for a while now. I go through phases of wearing the same shoes several days in a week and then not wearing them for a while. Probably not the best way to treat them, but when I'm in the mood for wearing a pair, I tend to go a bit overboard. :)

    I don't know - maybe a commune in northern California - I hear there is a lot of weirdness in that region.

    You're getting back into beanpole territory here. The rolled up cuffs only go to focus the eyes vertically.


    This is sharp.

    It is, isn´t it? We SW&D guys should come more often, and in hordes.

    The white coat is by Ann Demeulemeester, a very important designer part of the so-called Antwerp six, the picture was taken during her runway show; I am making faces at Japanese photographers before entering the premises. Contextual enough for you? I literally know hundreds of people who dress in brands like those I wear, many of them a lot more "out there" than those pictures, I can make recommendations to the good people of MC casual because I know a lot about their style too, the reverse not being the case I think attempting to criticize my style is a pointless exercise for you guys...

    "Hundreds of people" is more than what most people can count without having to start over a few times...thus, I think that you've made a powerful case.

    I've made faces at Japanese photographers, too, so I feel you on that issue.

    There's a statue of a guy reading a book in an area of town I used to hang out in when I was a young degenerate teen. For some reason Japanese tourists were obsessed with this particular statue, and their tour buses (which are in that town daily) stopped there to take pictures of the statue, and usually a few of my friends doing something obscene to it. I strongly suspect that in private photo albums in Japan, there are literally thousands of pictures of me at age 13, stoned out of my skull, smoking a lucky strike and confusedly watching one of the idiots I hung around with pretend to give head to a statue....

    The jacket seems short and that crotch area looks rather tight?
