I think he is wearing the exact same shirt and tie combo on Sept. 17, 2006 in a pic on your blog. That picture is in color (shirt: purple, tie: black hounds tooth). He looked cool there too but attitude is what sells it…Mr. Bowles has a PhD. in style. On most people (read: 90%) it would be a train wreck. Funny how much attitude and chutzpah carry the day. A lesson for us all (o.k. for me..)
Love the whole look! The geek glasses, the mismatched prints, the bemused expression all add up so nicely. Lately I have taken to wearing mismatched prints and suprising shots of color which all somehow go together and I love how it looks!
I heart Hamish. His photos at style.com show several examples of a paisley tie with a plaid shirt, a combination I have been wanting to try myself but have been doubtful about. Maybe now I will have the courage.
I LOVE to mix patterns as much as possible, but as the person said before me just a little to close in scale. I find it very confusing to the eye. Really did not care for it in the 70′s (Those large prints and patterns) and certainly don’t like it now. Sorry Mr. Bowles!
