    +1. Way over the top. Hot fuschia pants are questionable to begin with. Then add the hat, contrast collar, short sleeves, tie, and tan shoes. Burns my eyes, no offense NYR

    I agree, it's just too much. I wasn't going to comment at all as it's pretty obvious, but I'll jump on the bandwagon.

    Even by NYR's intergalactic standards, this one is out there.

    This one seems to polarize. I like.

    I think NYR's fit looks fine. I'll bet the pants are more of a true red rather than a fuchsia IRL. The tie is a perfectly normal rep tie. If he'd worn it with a navy blue suit, I'd bet that the people that don't like would like it just fine.

    completely unrelated...what number do you see in this randomly chosen picture:

    the only place that tie might work would be underneath two sets of turtle-neck sweaters.

    Am I the only one who finds NYR's shoes to be particularly, umm, ladies-shoe-esque?

    short sleeves are a no go outside of the beach, imo.

    easy to say in Austria...not so easy in a crowded un-airconditioned NYC classroom.

    Seeing how it's a landlocked country, you're wearing them away from the beach if you wear one on Austrian soil :) . I don't feel comfortable in them, but they can definitely be done right, just not by me.

    The rules are a bit different in the states, even in the northern parts of the country our summer temps tend to be from about 30-40c most of the summer.

    Me too. A lot of men seem to be scared of colour. I think this works, except for the shoes, which I don't like a whole lot.
