Anonymous asked: Prom's coming up, and I'm fashionably inept. She had a peach color dress. What would match with peach for a tuxedo?

Stick with a classic black tuxedo and you’ll look good in all formal situations. Get a peach flower for your lapel if you want to tie your looks together without going overboard.

Anonymous asked: Grad is coming up and my girlfriend is wearing a purple dress. Would I be able to do a navy suit?

Yeah, it’ll work. Gray would be ideal but navy should look fine.

Hey Tumblr people in Chicago and surrounding suburbs, I need your help!
If you see a car like this (‘97-00’ Mercedes C-Class C220, C230 or C280) with a smashed up front right (passenger side) corner with broken headlight glass, please please please grab the license plate number and message me with it! Partial plate or even the location where you saw it would help.
Long story short, someone driving a car like this destroyed my car that was parked on Fullerton in Logan at about 2:45 this morning. They didn’t leave a note but they did leave some broken headlight glass and a portion of a fender liner.

lukearnoldishot asked: What is your recommended colour tie to wear with a dark navy suit?

Depends on the situation.

For more formal, you can’t go wrong with grey. I also really like burgundy, navy, black, and tan.

For casual wear, most colors/patterns (even loud ones) can look good.

This. This is wonderful. Except the pants fit weird in the crotch.

I stood in to take a few test shots for my friend as he was setting up to shoot the photobooth at my girl’s Christmas party this past weekend. I tried to look as douchey as possible and succeeded royally. This was somehow the least offensive of the four that were taken.

Anonymous asked: for levis 501 stf if want a kinda slim fit what size would i buy and what would i do to like get me there? should i presoak first and then just wait it out?

It’s tough to answer this because I don’t know your relative leg size but if you want maximum shrinkage go hot soak, hot dry. Although I wouldn’t recommend the dryer, as it gives you really weird creases and fading.

From the Vivian Maier exhibit at the Chicago History Museum. Would you know that this wasn’t from a 2013 lookbook if I hadn’t told you that?
