Oh darn! This could have been great if he had gone with some nice dress shoes but wearing those garish shoes wrecks it. With everything else being more traditional (scarf, jacket, shoes) those pants could have really stood out and taken this outfit to the next level. But now going from top to bottom is like watching something start strong and then fall apart. Bummer.

Matt, I know. The more I look at the photo, the less I like the look...HOWEVER, in his defense, in person, he popped out of the crowd more than anyone I've seen on this blog. The photo really did not dothe look justice.

Getting noticed is easy.

You just have to wear a ridiculous hat, or have a neo-nazi tramp-stamp or be given a weird name like Rainbow or Battery (I dunno). Putting it all together, with no element missing or out of place, and still making it seem effortless is the goal.

I hope to pull it off myself one of these days.

But you are right. The most important thing is that he's out there trying something different, mixing it up, putting effort in to how he presents himself...and for that he gets a thumbs up.

Matt: Rainbow and Battery? Psssh...I met a guy named Puppet once...he was cool...sold meth to kids!

I'm flattered I even got six comments. You both are right--the shoes aren't really appropriate.

I love the entire outfit- even the shoes. Adds a little spunky fun!
