    The pants are for the days like today when I'm up and out at 6.30am and need the feeling of comfort. I wore my Cheap Mondays yesterday. In most cases todays outfit would have had the ball huggers versus the sloppy cargo's. I'll try better tomoz!
    Hey, no need for ball crunchers unless you like 'em. I actually kind of like the silhouette with the loose/slightly baggy cargos, I'm just not big on the pattern, and think the look would be razor-sharp with slim pants. In any case, it's still good.

    Honestly, I like the fit but think it *just* misses because of the pants. Everything else I love, but I think the look might be better with a slightly slimmer pair of pants--jeans, of course, or maybe slim, flat-front slacks either in a solid color or maybe subtly patterned. All IMHO, of course.

    I love the scarf.


    I disagree about the pants. I think that they work, as would looser jeans. I like the contrast between the fitted top and the baggier bottom.

    I think that would look good too, but this look is just so nice and effortless looking. LA in a good way.

    Hey Rye, is that a kaffiyeh? If so, are you wearing it symbolically or fashionably? (And if symbolically, are the vaguely camo pants part of the symbol?)

    It's all for vanity I'm afraid. I like military pants, always have and the scarf I picked up recently in Japan.

    Actually I think kaffiyehs look stylish: those damn Palestinians had to go and ruin them for the rest of us! [​IMG] And by "us" I mean people like me who dress superficially enough and spend enough time spouting leftist babble to have to worry about someone calling us out for wearing one. If you can get away with it, power to you!

    [​IMG] the shirt is tg76
    Point of discussion: to what extent has the "dying star logo" been co-opted by Joy Division (by using it as the cover of Unknown Pleasures)? I love the symbol, but I'm not a JD fan (She Wants Revenge does it better [​IMG]), so I'm not sure whether I should wear it. (I've seen it used in other places, but never where it was clear it wasn't a JD homage.)

    it sounds like you know enough about the origin of the design to talk your way out of a corner if you come across a joy division fan. just do it.

    Multiple days worth of what I was/am wearing then/now for your perusal!

    Way back on the 26th:

    [​IMG]

    The shirt is one I've posted before, back in September--black & white checked buttonup. I like it underneath large solids to add visual interest, but unfortunately the pic didn't really come out at all.

    Dressing for the ridiculous fucking wind on the 29th (I buttoned up before leaving the building):

    [​IMG]

    And today. Another bad pic, but I like that it looks all sneaky-like. [​IMG] Anyway, better pic under way harsh lights right next to it.
