Okay seriously, can the placement of this photo be any better?! This outfit was made for this scene!
One of the best nuggets of style advice I’ve heard (and incorporated into my own lifestyle) was from a guy I don’t remember in a magazine I can’t recall (probably GQ): “Your outfit should never be perfect – it should have flaws. Having a flaw (a frayed cuff, a wrinkled tie, a hair out of place) will give it personality and life.”
I mean when you think about it…as stupid and opposite thinking as it may sound…he’s actually right. There are those outfits which feel like they’ve been pressed right out of a factory. It’s plastic, unauthentic, and not stylish at all. Flaws (be it a mismatching sock or a pocket square undone) not only make our outfits human, but they also make us less mannequin like.
So despite the pristine condition of this guy’s pants and shoes, I think he balances it out well with the negative break and the slightly frumpy sweater – It feels very Beatles to me. So here’s to fashionable flaws! Cheers matey!
