    One leather jacket -- and you're going to throw it away for a Michael Jackson look? :eh:

    Jacket was something like 15 euro at a Rome open-air market 8 years ago. I'm sure something like it exists in Zara, H&M, or elsewhere. Pretty ubiquitous. Nothing special. Thanks tho :)

    Rob, are those pants as tight as they look? I always wonder how do I look in my Mabis from a third person perspective and now I think I know, lol! Anyways, they always get praise from the female crowd, as well as the huge quads hiding under them. I still want bigger quads but it may be at the expense of retiring a couple of my favorite trous and jeans.


    As others have said, the cap detracts from the amazing jacket. Save it for the gym.

    Huh, I'm honestly surprised people can get on board with both the jacket and the very SW&D style I wore it in (I don't like wearing a cap much either tbh but not gonna do hair up at night when getting groceries). Normally worn without the bball cap as seen here when the bar asked me to help me make them some drinks:

    You shouldn't be surprised there are others who dwell on this side of the forums who can switch from MC to SW&D, and also appreciate and WEAR the aesthetic. I really like that jacket, although I don't think I could pull it off without getting the "Mira, Michael Jackson!!" shout every ten seconds. BTW, what are the sneaks? I need a pair of white ones that look substantial like those.

    Not as much this side, more like this thread. If I post in the normal WAYWT thread here I'm usually well received by the regulars but this thread gets more comments and participation from newer or lesser known people. Plus I think there are only 2 guys other than me that straddle the fence commonly (MoK and Parker, NOBD is close but doesn't really wear different styles at all).

    Sneakers are Common Project Achilles model from this year spring I think.

    Thanks guys...DY, these fit like a pair of jeans, which is why I love em so much. A lot of Khakis have a hard time straddling that dress/casual line with ut being too much one or the other, but these are bang on, I love em. The iPhone accentuates the tightness in the thighs.
