Outfit analysis: I really liked the laid-back vibe of this outfit, and the trousers and oxford keep it office appropriate. The belt and shoes are a nice touch of color.
It's flashback time, folks. We're going way back...back to the days when...
- When it was too dark after work to take outdoor photos (got home after dark again)
- When it was rainy and cold (high of 60?)
- When newspaper editors kept their sleeves rolled up and wore vests
There is something about this outfit that reminds me of the old school newspaper industry. Sort of like in the Newsies. Am I crazy? Either way, I like it.
Do you draw inspiration from your industry's history?
