Smart. Casual.

I blame damiancugley. At work once - whether apropos of nothing or inspired by seeing me - he said, "You know in Star Trek when they go back in time to the late 20th century, and they dress in period costume, and it's always perfect? That never rang true. It would be much more realistic if they wore stuff that looked reasonable at first glance but, on closer examination, was all a bit uncoordinated and didn't quite fit because the computer that designed the costume didn't quite get it."

Since that day, when I catch a glimpse of myself reflected in the windows at work (typically resplendent in unlaced army boots, black cord jeans, coloured shirt and dinner jacket) I don't think, "I really need to either get some proper work clothes or stop trying", I think "Yeah! 24th century retro, baby!"
