    you look way younger in the pictures where you are pulling off a beard and shorter hair on top, in my opinion...

    Thanks. The blazer with the purple jeans is a brioni cashmere tweed jacket, one of my favorites. The blazer with the fedora is from the 80's, I think, and probably not worth getting resized. The Old Navy women's jeans definitely have no less room for the hardware than my Brunno Cucinelli jeans. Sara is quite a bit younger than me and I need to dress in a youthful way. It was actually the guys on the forum who suggested I get rid of the facial hair. My style is sufficiently unique that it generally gets approval from younger people, guys and girls, but I have learned that women closer to may age tend to be disapproving of pink, purple, or aqua jeans, ascots, etc, and prefer a more conservative look.

    I think I was giving William Conrad (Cannon) a run for his money at my earlier weight (bottom picture), and actually lost weight in part because I don't think you can look as attractive in clothes unless you're lean (even less attractive without clothes).

    I will never warm to the ubiquitous look of sock less skinny white ankles and loafers/topsiders/camp mocs but I have to say a huge improvement on the shorts!:D

    (And you say I can't fit things.) Sleeves too long, trousers too long, scarf too retro for my tastes, shoes could be better. I like the SC, though--nice material/colour. :) (Are you naked under that thing?) I think, a solely brown scarf with lighter-grey-than-the-SC or, possibly, burgundy trousers would work better.

    Of everything you mentioned, only the sleeve length is a slam-dunk comeback to hendrix. He's obviously going for the stacked look (like it or not), the scarf is personal preference, and shoes could be better than... what? So, I think you'll need to find a more egregious example than this to undermine his credibility as a critic.

    But keep trying. :lurk:

    Not a look I ever could or would wear, but definitely cool. I kinda think when you're wearing a U-neck and a scarf instead of a shirt and tie you're probably not going for traditional lol.

    Well, that would void your previous statement, that the sleeve length is the only slam dunk. (Anyway, it's starting, to make me feel like as equal an ass, so I'll stop.)

    More evidence of you acting like a baby, as mentioned earlier in this thread. If you had one harsh critic it might be an anomaly -- two, fine.... but, it seems to me, there are countless established forum members within this thread (and pretty much every thread you post in) who have outright criticized you as a poster.

    You're in denial.

    I swear we have the same taste, Keith. Shirt is Paul Smith. Forgot to take a close up one. :(
