Nor do I, but the navy shells Carmina has are exception making lovely.
AE "granite" calf, wtf?
.How do we draw the line between laziness and nonchalance?
It's in the eye of the viewer, so what one person may see as laziness or sloppiness another may see as sprezz; I guess the goal is to increase the odds that your outfit is perceived in the latter light rather than the former. Part of that will be factors external to the clothing--confidence, existing knowledge of the wearer, physical attractiveness, etc--but part of it will just be aesthetics; the above look isn't aesthetically pleasing for the reasons outlined in the previous post.
If 80% of the people you see on the street figure your narrow end of the tie being longer than the wide end to be sprezz, be it intentional or unintentional, you've succeeded. Only 20%, you've failed
I like split toe shoes.
Mainly because I have enormous Goddamned feet. The military has destroyed my feet. I joined the Army with size 9 feet. I now have 10.5 EEE feet; my arches are gone, most of my toenails are gone, and I've had multiple fractures in both feet to the point where they've flattened out like flippers. My AE Ashtons actually look good; the split toe makes my feet look . . . not streamlined, but rather the opposite. Purposeful. Reinforced, almost. I'm afraid of what my feet will look like in a balmoral, frankly.
