    This is a master-class in fit. If you ask someone to imagine wearing bright Orange trousers and pink shirt people would laugh. If, however, you manage to get the fit perfect and put it in a sensible setting, then you're golden. People need to remember that 9/10 a bad outfit looks bad because it doesn't fit the wearer.

    I agree. The OP has been posting some really terrific fits these past few days. I hope he continues to post.

    The man-bracelet is one of the most unfortunate and awful #menswear inspired fads I've seen since the 4" cuff..

    A lot of perfectly acceptable watches under 3k. A lot of perfectly acceptable watches under $500. I don't know if you need one though, depending on how many sartorial situations you encounter.

    I am not fond of men's bracelets; I wouldn't wear one. But....quite a few of the better and esteemed SF posters sport them--IST66 comes to mind--and they make it look good. In CD's pic, he looks like he is just wasting time enjoying a cuppa. Who cares what time it is. More power to him.

    Wait I thought I was doing the lynching. Too subtle?

    The word lynch makes me uncomfortable

    Ran out of thumbs-up, but just want to say, clarinetplayer is right: Subjective is subjective; objective is objective. If people like putting shit on their wrists or in their lapel holes--as long as it is colour coherent, etc--more fucking power to them. And, frankly, anyone who says otherwise is an idiot.
