    Not awful, but not awesome. Is that jacket half of a suit, by any chance, or did you buy it on its lonesome? It fits pretty well -- I'm just not sure about the stripes.

    Jeans and watch are cool though.

    Thanks for the feedback! I was looking at Ian Velardi's look book and the jacket seems to be featured in the same way. Perhaps the shorter look is not right for me!

    west of the strip ...
    

    I like it a lot... even if it is an orphan jacket. This is "jeans and jacket" done right if you ask me... :nodding:

    Not a fan of the suit jacket paired with denim but the look is good

    It's a pretty dominant trend -- even great designers like Velardi are tacking onto it. It's not a bad thing, but in the long term, the look won't age well.

    Fuuma linked to another pic of the boots... do you get a Merrell vibe from all plaintoe boots? :confused:

    I don't get what the fuck SB is on about. The boots are cool. The whole outfit is pretty damn good.

    It's just Fuuma's soul patch that's concerning.

    Agree. I suppose if I don't love it, I shouldn't be spending on it (even if I would receive 20 off).
    Who might you recommend? The shoulders of this coat fit me perfectly (I have an 11 inch drop). I am still trying to find an otr fit that works for me.
    Appreciate the honest feedback!

    I tucked the tie in because I had to lean forward while taking the picture.
    Do you consider mixing silver watch and -beltbuckle with brass jacket buttons faux pas?

    I tend to stay away from brass buttons altogether

    That said, I like the look here... are those wholecuts your'e wearing?

    You could use a slimmer shirt, especially in the sleeves.

    No. Great ensemble. Not terribly casual, though. :)

    Thank you guys for comments. This jacket is really part of suit. I know the rules but sometimes it's good to break some of them :)

    One step closer to rocking graphic tees, destroyed denim and baller high tops :slayer:

    On reflection, I agree, though loose clothes in the summer have something to recommend them.


    You obviously have a pronounced taste for irony :satisfied:.
