Getting drunk and picking up random stuff in the dark at Goodwill is not the way to chose an outfit.
Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.
The Sartorialist is a great site. I've definitely robbed some tidbits on the cheap from some of those heavy hitters on there. What doesn't impress me is when they have the executive from Ralph Lauren or Brioni and show them off. They, of course, will look good, but the poor or middle class guy that puts it together color, mixed patterns or plain, simple style are the ones I love most.
The fact remains you very rarely see people dress like this other than the places he hits: Manhattan, London, Milan and Paris. Never do you see this level of style in lowly Ohio. Here "style" is wearing jeans with an "affliction" t-shirt or jeans and a button down shirt of course not tucked in.
While not everything is not to my personal taste, I applaud people putting it out there.
Now here is a guy that doesn't have a pot to piss in (just look at the shoes) and I can say without hesitation that he has more style than 99% of the people I see everyday. Its certainly not about expensive clothes, its the confidence and this guy's loaded with it. Poor fit and all, this guy is as cool as they come.
A great blog, love to look at the variety of style out there, especially when I find my city generally is lacking. I noticed it is also mentioned in the blog about another blog, The Selby http://www.theselby.com/ which gives pics of people in their homes or places of work which I find is very fascinating and gives a good look at design and decorating too.

....Usually people in this man's position have given up hope. Maybe this gentleman has too, I don't know, but he hasn't given up his sense of self or his sense of expressing something about himself to the world. In my quick shot I had noticed his pale blue boots, what I hadn't noticed at first were the matching blue socks, blue trimmed gloves, and blue framed glasses. This shot isn't about fashion - but about someone who, while down on his luck, hasn't lost his need to communicate and express himself through style.
Looking at him dressed like this makes me feel that in some way he hasn't given in or given up....
amazing. as soon as i read this i knew i had to post it here.
now that is inspiring.
