    I’ve become a big fan of the no break trouser even though it doesn’t work for all looks. Sid’s got it right as far as his interpretation of modern American men’s style with a dash of Neapolitan flair.

    I love the flood pant look.  Just can’t do it myself.  Keep it going.

    Andy—It’s inspiring to read someone actually paying attention and learning. The tie is the perfect example of the disheveled non-chalance that I preach at Unabashedly Prep. The knot is completely intentional yet fools some into thinking it was not.  You want to exhibit a slight imperfection in your style. It humanizes and individualizes you.

    CapitolA, I’ll bet you the tie style is on purpose.  Most of the guys at Sid Mashburn have a distinctive way of wearing their ties so that both ends are visible.  I got my 501s there and am wearing them much the same way today, (along with a pink shirt, no less.)  They shrink by three inches after the first wear, so I rolled them at first and now have no break just like what’s shown here.  I don’t wear them with everything, but on the right outfit I really love this look.  It shows off my normal ankle style; either extremely obnoxious socks or no socks at all.

    The back of the tie is just showing. Even though it wasn’t on purpose, it’s a nice touch in the photo…Shows everything is not perfect.

    I can’t tell what’s going on with his tie.  It looks like he’s wearing 2 ties at once.

    Dope, looks like this was from your visit at Sid Mashburn. Did you see that he’s opening Ann Mashburn around the corner?
