I like this a lot. Love the jacket! I might've worn brown suede shoes, but it is great regardless.
+1. But have to say, this is not a logo, just a stupid badge. Don't even know what it presents. Got no balls to try get it off. That's too much even for me anawys, thanks for answer!
More magic pants to keep our friend Rambo bemused.
I don't think I'll ever really "get" what people on SF like in a casual look. I was half-expecting to be torn to shreds for my last look, and instead it got a fair few positive comments. All appreciated though!
What don't you get? Layering is cool, colors are great and autumnal, nice combination of textures and patterns + hat adds a little bit of swag that looks cool with a casual fit but often looks dorky otherwise
Oh, don't get me wrong, I liked how I looked.
But I've also liked how I've looked at other times, when I haven't had positive feedback. I'm not saying I deserved +ve comments then, mind you. I'm not critiquing SF, but myself: what I'm saying is that I don't have an eye for "cool", which is a component of casual in a much more direct way than it is for smarter looks. I've never really needed to dress "cool", to be honest, so I don't haven't really put in the practice/hours required to train the eye. I definitely have an eye for smart/sharp. I flatter myself than I also have an eye for colour (even I sometimes combine them in bizarre ways). And on a good day, I even have an eye for patterns (again, sometimes a rather psychedelic/mirror funhouse eye...). But "cool" (within the more modern casual spectrum) is not really my forte, and to complicate matters, is a tricky thing to absorb osmotically through feedback, because it's a fairly nebulous concept to define.
It is now. Cool, doc.
New fit, same coat.
Is it currently cold in Toronto?
Right now it's 9, and it's going to rain for the next 4 days or so. It's going to get pretty close to 0 too.
Yeah getting colder and colder. Winter is coming...
