    That shirt is pretty cool all right. Loving the quiff - there's a touch of 90s indie pop band to it.

    Your face is totally different from what I imagined you looked like. For some reason (maybe it's your avatar) I pictured you as an older looking dude with black, greying hair. I also thought you were an Englishman living abroad (until I read the languages thread). Turns out that you're blonde, Swedish and quite youthful looking!

    Hah! I guess it's nice to be able to bring some mystique in this age of show all/tell all. I normally don't bother to show face, as my mug is irrelevant to the outfit in most cases. (Also I'm no good at posing.) This time however I felt the shades were a big part of the look.

    I was quite reticent at first about posting pics with my mug in them but as I wear hats a lot, I included the mug in one photo as it made more sense visually to keep it in. I can see why a lot of people would hesitate about doing this, but I just thought, "fuck it".. life's too short to be worrying about things like that.

    Creed's observation in the last challenge voting poll was interesting when he said " I wonder if the outfits we all post would look any 'different' if we could all see what each other looks like?! "- I think he has a point there - in your case, your clothes seem to suit you more (in my head at least!) now that I know you don't look old, grey and English!


    And as for this fella...


    For some reason, I thought he'd have a bit of a Liam Gallagher look to him, but instead he's got a slight air of a young Billy Bragg (that's a good thing btw - Bragg looks like an intelligent, affable guy).

    Cool photo too - the bomber & tee look great. Digging the groovy glasses. The couple in the back look like some extras from a Mike Leigh film.

    Kudos on rocking the funky shades-not a lot of people could pull that off. Deets on the bomber?

    There's absolutely a point to it - the face that goes with the outfit will have an impact on the whole look. And when there's a hat, or specs/shades, or a mustache, or whatever that adds to the look, by all means show it! I don't mind faces in look pics, but not showing your face has the advantage of removing you from the look. The pictures becomes about the outfit, and not about the wearer. I dislike our current ego indulging selfie culture. Guys with a knit brow and a smug smile. Girls with pouting lips and a hint of boob. And what does it say about a person, when nine out of ten pictures on their instagram account is of thelmselves, or rather of their face? I'm not sure what it says, but I find it tiresome.


    Sorry about the rant there. Anyway, yes, I think the fact that I look pretty youthful is an added contrast to my cardigan + shirt + wool tie wearing nature.

    Yeah it's me

    Think the lighting / filter is making my hair look a bit lighter in this one. Weirdly, I have had the Dyer comparison quite a bit, although I don't see it myself.

    RE getting the face in fit pics, it does jar a bit for me, but if there's a pic which I like which has been on my IG then I feel like I may as well post it here as that's public anyway. Speaking of which, here's a clearer shot of the old mug since that seems to be what we are doing now:



    I guess one's face, and the way clothes suit it, does make a big difference to how an outfit comes off. Would be interesting to see more mugshots itt.

    That suit is lush Creed. I am coming around to the idea of a peak lapel on single breasted jacket.
