    I think that is some bold look. Really nice match with the socks and those wingtips.

    I like it. Bold and bright.

    PS. The background really brings out the colour contrast.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Sweet Levis look . It appears to be an old Levis shirt with the new 201 buckle-back 201 re-issues (?). Plus, the socks, hat and wing-tips are the icing on the cake.

    I like this! I like how everything is rather conventional except for the socks, but even those really go with the rest of the outfit. The blue background brings it all together. I have to use my Church's in more exciting ways, like this one. Jorge from WPB

    Nice socks. But still what is the deal with rolling up the trousers? Some time ago it was allowed only for absentminded nuclear physics professors. I can't convince my husband to do it in case trousers are too long.

    Beautiful shoes. I think the rolled cuffs to shoe off the socks- which could have been a subtle eccentricity-is childish, and a bit clownish. Combined with the funky hat and hair, it appears costume-like and contrived. However, he looks comfortable, neat, clean and should be praised for his shined-up brogans!

    See? Now this fellow has real style. It doesn't look as studied as the woman below. (Her heavy woolen hat seems too early in the season.) There is nothing contrived about his look, it all is very natural and that's why it works for him and probably not as well on anyone else.

    i like where he's heading with the look but not totally convinced. HOWEVER! He's wearing what appear to be Florsheim brogues – which my grandfather used to wear (but no longer does because he now prefers a softer shoe). He is my male style archetype.

    So, points for the shoes and the sock combination mais c'est tout.

    I like the various individual elements; especially the shoes. However, there is an off air of mistmatch. The clothes, which exude a kind of cheerful academic or philosophical (as opposed to arragonat academic) bent, and again the shoes especially, don't correspond to the dreadlocks and the expression on the gentleman's face. The hat is quite out of place with the rest.
