I've settled into a style but I'm thinking about doing something different.

Irish linen shirt or a crisp white cotton shirt, black or blue jeans, Justin Ropers casual leather boot (polished), belt color and wallet always match footwear color, 18K mechanical wind vintage Swiss watch, leather jacket or jeans jacket, leather brief case. That's my look. Boring?

(No sweats outside the house, no dirty or worn out jeans, no sneakers, no ball caps, no cologne, no jewelry other than watch.)

What style in men's fashion says 'this guy has it together?' The classic looks, mature casual and dressy, and current trends.

Thank You. I appreciate that. Your wardrobe sounds good. Not into the cowboy boots but other than that-like the linen or crisp BB oxford.

Guess the stuff I like on guys may not be suitable for some areas. Where I live its comfortable (not tight) jeans, flannel shirts or tank top (as long as he doesn't look like a grizzly bear, yuk!) and an occaisional baseball or cowboy hat. But then, isn't that what most (or former) rodeo cowboys wear these days?
I'm not real big on high fashion or dress to impress. But then like mentioned, that's probably what makes me ... Weird? Different?
If you don't mind my asking, where are you from, dressed so sharp?

I perfected this look sometime last week.

Same shirt, but french cuffs. And I drove all the way up to Trumbull to pick up that tie.

This picture is from the express website which I snipped. I'll post my own soon. I need to remember the next time I do this outfit.

And that is Antlered Chamataka style

Pretty amazing tie. I set it on top of my tie mount and stared at it for two days.

To me, individual style matters less for a guy than style in the classic, general sense...that of being well-groomed, and pulled together/non-sloppy, regardless of what his individual sartorial taste is. I like it more when particular "look" comes off as effortless and and afterthought, versus something that was carefully orchestrated/dwelled upon. Too fussy/too much attention to everything being just so comes off as a bit too anal for my taste.

willdu your style sounds fine!

I'm not crazy about the denim or leather jacket, but that's just me. It sounds like you could make changes to your 'core' style now and then and still feel like 'you' : a more interesting belt or shoes, a different jacket, or even a pattern on that button-down shirt. Sometimes a change is nice, even temporarily. The seasons and weather are a good excuse to break it up a little.

I like it. (I'm trusting the white shirt is crisply pressed. )

Chamy: It's a good thing you're thin.
