    This is what I looked like yesterday, the day after Valborg (Walpurgis night) celebration.
    I don't usually fold up the legs, but feeling the pre-summer breeze has an amazing way of soothing the hangover.

    This is a mess. It's like a collision of MC and SW&D, rather than a marriage - and it reminds me of the posh students I used to have at my last university in the UK. Your recent fits have been really good but you do seem to struggle once you stray outside the particular MC niche you've made for yourself.

    Thank you


    Yeah, my neighbour, you're probably right about the mess stuff but sometimes I feel myself like :)


    Thanks
    I don't know exactly what the brand but the label says - Rockstar :)

    I digged your last post, but this is a trainwreck in my book.

    It is good or bad for you? :embar:


    Thanks. This is Jean Paul Gaultier which I bought in Ukraine years ago. I am not sure where you can find one.

    Well, trainwrecks aren't categorised as "good" in my book. :p To brake it up: Top button on shirt not buttoned, too slim tie for such wide lapels, orphaned suit jacket(?), if not; striped SC + dad jeans = not a match.

    You're taking criticism lightly? On SF?

    By ditching the SC and tie, and getting some darker jeans, it would be awesome. Would love to see the footwear as well.

    EDIT: Of course, this is IMO, would be boring if everyone wore the same.

    Jeans are the main culprit, otherwise I dig the "GTH Styleforvm " look [​IMG]

    [​IMG] But you know, there should be a lot more of this, and a lot more experimentation without fear of ridicule. I like the fact that Kappelan tries different things. I guess he does so because he wants feedback on whether it works or not. I've failed really badly on some similar attempts.

    Of course, I'm not saying to stop experimenting, but in this case I think he went a little overboard.

    Paging clothing meme experts, does this qualify as #menswear?
