    Snug implies tight and uncomfortable which it is not. Atleast not to me. Actually the GQ look is what I was going for. Am I generally a gq guy? No.. but there are some looks I dig, this being one of them. No matter our differences though, thanks for the insight. The purpose of posting on forum's is getting honest opinions. I like what I like which will not change but appreciate the input. Thanks aravenel!

    Stitchy, did you try cuffing your pants? that might help take away from the narrowness on the bottom. I bought the urban slim fit chinos from jcrew and I have the same issue with the narrow leg opening so i cuff them and it works better. give it a shot! doesnt hurt right?

    these are levis made and crafted, the leg is an ankle hugger, even a cuff wont change it. unless i tried cuffing it at the knee, its a little wider there.

    :laugh:

    thanks for the idea though.

    My fucking socks were indeed worn. I forgot to snap a picture of the shoes so I took one from the summer.

    Cotton top, wool bottom.
    Navy cotton sport coat (corduroy?), cotton shirt and sweater
    Wool pants and socks
    Herring shoes (yeah, I know I need more shoes)
    Some day I'll be able to take clearer pictures... but you get the idea.

    Thats the aesthetic I shoot for and I still get mistaken for gay (and apparently danish) once a week minimum. I think its kinda hard to do unless you're naturally a slob.

    I like this look, but I think my personal preference would have been a dark brown or camel sweater instead of the navy. Just a little too much blue w/ the navy pants. Great colors in that jacket!
