I wear a lot of grey and navy as a 'dark neutral'.

Black is just way too harsh for me, but now I've found a coat that seems to work. Plus I only have to wear it outside.

Just a few things I just cannot get into (^besides creepers)..
-raised hem on the pants/exposed ankles
-beards
-streetstyle shots
-fur in menswear

But, I must say, this shot certainly negates all of the above. The black socks take away from the look-at-my-ankles aspect of the raised hem look..the volume of the coat makes a nice contrast to the slimness of the pants..the brown fur lapel adds a fun touch to an all-black look..and throw on some shades, some ink, and voila--you got yourself one stylish man..Well done, whoever you are.

Well done indeed - I love it!

Also, creepers...possibly the ugliest shoes ever created. *shivers*

i agree with you for the most part. beards are a deal breaker for me. there are a few thom browne looks where the hem is slightly raised that look OK. that is browne's "thing".
most streetstyle shots are as choregraphed as any ballet IMO.

I truly hate it when clueless people try hard to put a label on you and fail misserably. Why do they feel the need? I'm just not wearing jeans. Deal with it.

^ They are just doing what makes them comfortable, I imagine Personally I like to be surprised, but I think a lot of people would be happy if we all jumped into pigeon holes and stayed there forever. A lot of people don't like to be startled ...

Can you raise one eyebrow? Do that next time

I do explain the difference between what they are saying it looks like and what it actually is
I always thought people have to put a label on you otherwise it's unknown and frightening, and that's why they do it.

shoulders back, head held high...
if they are confused, then you're doing something right...

i just found three belts that might work...
ordered them with fingers crossed that at least one will be good...

They don't get to me, just annoy me.
How did it go with the belts?
I've been feeling a slight need to change everything I wear and have been making a lot of clothes.
I think a couple of things altered my way of dressing: I had to have surgery over a broken leg last year and I can't get on a pair of heels yet. And the other factor is that since I took up a skating sport (roller derby) I cannot wear anything flowy or below the knees three times a week. That narrows it a lot down. However, I think I manage to make that a reason to explore and try new things in order to stay me but still be sporty-friendly. I've skated in a tie, a vest and so on. It's another way of having fun while dressing.
