What is Branquinho doing nowadays, anything?
Quoted for awesomeness. This is crazy nice, and that SC is incredible.
The jacket is short. It's the new trendy Euro look - haven't you heard. But I got a really good price on it, so I'll have to be content.
The pants have plenty of room in the crotch. They're flat-front, yes, but they aren't gonna kill any sperm.
can someone explain to me how a blazer, dress pants, dress shoes, dress shirt and a pocket square.. is casual?
Ian, what fucking bubble do you live in? You don't hang around artists much do you? Not accusatory in any way, either. Most people don't run into people with Fuuma's taste often, let alone hang out/work with them. Hang around creative people a bit more and you might run into a few more who dress like he does...maybe even run into the man himself.
Seriously. Isn't it obnoxious getting asked by 20+ people daily why you're so dressed up/where you're going that warrants you to dress so incongruently with those around you?
Way too much reactionism going on up in here. How about we have fun instead. Broaden our ideas of what menswear can be. Sound good?
Or unmodified Clapeyron pose judging by his avatar. Pocket square explosion and please don't do that with your jacket cuffs. Otherwise not bad.
There are some nice pics in here but very little of this looks casual to me. The looks are dressier (I hate that word) than anything I ever see outside of a work environment or at the opera or symphony.
This is a fine look but it is not casual by my definition. What do you wear to mow the lawn, go to a football/cricket/whatever game, run to the hardware store to pick up nails, or sit around the house to watch the tv?
Rob, you are missing the point. You could dress in a coleman tent, g string and go go boots and, thanks to the Internet, find (to use Fuuma's word) "hundreds" of people who dress similarly, and hundreds more who would call you a style icon. There are 7 billion other people on the planet, however.
In any event, I wouldn't even look twice at Fuuma walking down the street, regardless of what we wore. It's the rest of the persona that stirs the embers of snark.
I have one. No joke. AND I've worn it several times.
In practice, I find that actually the opposite is true. Not cuffing makes the denim appear longer which thus exaggerates my long legs. Cuffing breaks it up a bit.
Don' take it out on me because you're angry you haven't been able to date-rape anyone in the last few weeks.
I like this. Not that I understand denim, but aren't the jeans a bit too stacked. I get the theoretical visual benefit of a bit of stacking in this look, but that strikes me as a one row too much, no?
