    HF, I'm one of those that would never wear a tie with jeans (so, totally unlike NOBD ;) ) but I think this works well: The colourful, large gingham + the sporty tweed coat + the solid woolly tie (could've been a knit as well) all seem appropriately casual for the jeans, which in turn are dressy enough for a tie.

    I can't really tell from the pic, but hopefully that's not a french cuff on the shirt :devil:

    Disaster, Crat. But a full-blown, no-holding-back disaster. :)

    I agree. There's absolutely nothing right about his at all! Mind you, I prefer someone to really go for it and blow up completely than the kind of timid and bland failures that most of us manage.

    I disagree. I think. A mid-gray, donegal-ish tweedy jacket could have been kinda cool with this. Maybe.

    But, Crat, never those pants and that jacket. Just don't.

    Nice boots.

    Fair enough. Different jacket, different pants, different PS, and Crat might be onto something. :)

    This is "Eat your heart out, Pitti."

    And stop mirror-shining those boots, Cr!

    I'll try that tmr., something less in-your-face :)
    This outfit was meant to be terrible.


    The trousers are by OBEY, bubba

    Looks nice, HF. I'd like bigger ribs on the neck of the sweater, but it has the 'Lockie vibe' :). Nice fit on the jacket too.
