    I stand corrected...im not mad at the shoes. The Blue sole and Blue shirt work well.

    The pants and shirt...whatevs.

    Same guy as camo pants, right? He seems to have almost-but-not-quite on lock. Those are really nice pants; I feel like the whole outfit would have worked better if they were allowed to sit full length. And it's all too snug for my taste.
    I appreciate he wants his uniqueness to shine through, but he needs help with execution.

    based on his clothes, what would you guess is playing on his ipod?

    Such a good (and hard) question!

    Is it pre- or post-game?

    If I saw him on the street, I'd guess investment tips talking book and Fabolous.

  • it looks like tweed pants with a tech fabric polo. tucked and buttoned no less. that is the worst look i've seen since his last terrible looks.

    Edit: The shaving kit needs to stay in the car or go into a duffle. It looks real awkward and goofy.

    I feel very much the same way.

    Full length pants would've been much better, although the snugness is fine imo. Undo that top button on the shirt. The blue hue is a bit strong for the shoes/pants, but not by much. Mismatched belt/shoe is okay. Definitely ditch the toiletry bag and opt for a leather duffel or something, and take off the shades once indoors.

    After that, it's a win.

    VI, I don't think it's a tech polo. I think it's a fine knit--probably Italian. But never ever ever do the top button on any shirt. It always looks goofy.

    "What is that, velvet?"

    Buttoning the top button can be a tough look to pull off for some, but not all.

    The top button is a risky move. But can be a devastating fashion statement if pulled off right.

  • i fuxx with the top button when it's correct. i dont do it just to do it. and it definitely has to be the RIGHT polo, and not something that had it's cleaning instructions ignored.

    the snugness is fine imo.

    If the fit of a guy's top makes me think of A Night at The Roxbury, I would argue it's too snug.

    Much like if the length of a lady's boots remind me of Pretty Woman (before the sugar daddy part kicked in), I would argue they're too high.

    I meant the snugness of the pants. The snugness of the shirt is fine, too, because he has an athletic build, and not a body-builder's "meat head" build.

    My $0.02, but I can see where you're coming from.

    I will clarify my position and say: as current trends go, there's nothing wrong with this. I actually like it as a statement, but it's not something I can pull off. I'm just not hip enough to make it look genuine, even though I am a young 38.

    With respect to personal style, I'm more aligned to a relaxed look.

    I still think buttoned all the way up looks goofy most of the time, with a few exceptions. Much the same way wearing a ball cap backwards looks goofy, almost always.

    this outfit sends a very strong message.

    and that message is:

    "hey guys, if you need some replacement razorblades and some moisturizer for your elbows, i swiped some from the hotel last night"

    Not even trying to be cute with words but I could see Westbrook listening to Bryan Ferry something. That, or the perennial Jigga fave, Coldplay.
