    I have very different styles. You will find me strange if you know me just at work, just at home or dressed to practice sports and you meet me out of the environment you are used to see me.
    Here it goes two:
    Dark jeans
    Button-up cardigan
    Leather boots

    Aviator sunglasses
    Slip-ons
    V-neck sweater

    Whoa, Manuel! <swoon> Are those suede with ponyhair vamps??? I want some! Who makes those? Where can I get some?

    I can wear a men's size 8. Are those small enough to justify me coming to your house to burgle them?

    Fashion is so not my issue!

    Having said this, in my younger years I dutifully opted for classic, tailored Austin Reed and Cricketeer suits and elegant dresses at my office. I always wore hats and gloves.
    Away from work, unless I had to attend some sort of event/occasion/function, I lived in either field boots or paddock boots and breeches. These days I opt for whatever feels most relaxed and comfortable on my body. Labels matter not one whit to me. If I have an event/occasion/function now, I bemoan the fact but opt for vintage casual, elegant Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein pieces from my wardrobe. At home, I prefer to live in feminine dressing gowns as much as possible---one of the few perks of old age! In fact, if I do shop for clothing now, I shop vintage. They no longer make the style of clothing I most prefer.

    - 90% of the time I'm wearing dark, cool-toned or jewel-like colours. Dark teal is a favourite.
    - Pale complexion. I wear SPF religiously, otherwise I get freckles, or worse, moles and skin tags which won't go away. Not happy about this as I love the sun and heat...
    - Structured yet slightly asymmetrical and minimalistic clothing. See All Saints, which is my favourite label. My wool funnel neck coat of theirs is my favourite item and has lasted through 6 winter seasons so far.

    Cheap but nice japanese wristwatches (Seiko five or a nice vintage Casio)
    Sideburns, most times no beard.
    Good leather shoes (Budapester/Haferl/Chukka).

    1. Nice designer handbag. Currently, I am carrying a Chloe Nano Hayley bag in green suede.
    2. Stylish but comfortable shoes. I am wearing a pair of Kate Spade boots...also in green suede.
    3. Minimalist or boho style depending on the day and my mood and a fragrance to suit the look. Today's SOTD is Amouage Interlude Woman.

    Grey flannel trousers with turn-ups

    Tweed jacket over a polo neck

    Wild, dark wavy hair (we have this wonderful expression in Polish 'storm of hair' I think it describes the state of affairs on my head only too well)

    1. Japanese rugged workwear/military influenced shirt from Orslow, Nonnative... can be a bit loose fit. Denim or not.
    2. High quality cords. Have liked Isaia, Eidos, Tomas Maier and Officine Generale. Rather slim and usually made in Italy. Dark green is a good color for me.
    3. Bottega Veneta or Prada desert boots. Prefer camel.

    Usually for me the defining expressive style items are a nice hat, a nice dress or sport wrist watch, and a cologne

    Oh and also for me is a good pair of highly polished brown shoes (usually an italian loafer at night) and a proper posture. I have a better posture now than I had back then. I didnt look good . Now I have a good posture while walking and standing. Sitting usually without thinking still i slump over. Not good. Posture makes a world of difference in how you look/how people perceive you I kid you not. You can completely look like a different person w the right posture : chest out a bit, shoulders down and back , chin down, lower back in, tailbone more out (these are all practice methods so a bit exaggerated in the beginning but you get used to it)

    Suede Loafers - navy trousers and brown oxfords are fool proof, and are passible no matter how ill fitting the rest of the outfit is. you're not getting away with loafers unless shirt and slacks are tailored precisely for your frame.

    Watch - I own an Oris Artix Gt Chrono, and a Nomos Zurich GMT/Worldtimer. "Instagram Watch" wearers don't know what they are but can clearly see the quality difference. And Rolex/Omega owners know you could have gone with an entry level Rolex/Omega but decided to go with something more personal and less mainstream. At least in regards to the cost of the Nomos.

    And of course a good fragrance. After all this is base notes.
    Don't stank.

    That's very interesting. I find it impossible to create a coherent outfit with navy trousers. Unless you mean jeans, I can't imagine what colour and material the jacket would have to be not to collide with the navy trousers.

    Love seeing all the individualistic style statements!

    Due to seasonal extremes summer and winter clothing essentials are distinctly different:
    summer—linens/winter—jeans

    But for all seasons:
    earrings and vintage “rescue” watch
    perfume
