    Maybe not you but I’d guess the majority that would push style boundaries is to get noticed. That’s why they push them. One upping others etc. doesn’t bother me if ppl prefer that. It’s just not my thing.

      Only like one week out of the year :-p I'm looking to move to a colder climate.

        My most adventurous jacket is a Brooks Brothers Multi-Windowpane check Harris Tweed sportcoat that I got here via swap and shop for cheap. It's loud but not super loud.

          Excellent question!

          My style is generally conservative (dark, solid colors, in classic pieces), but I do have a couple items that I indulge with to peacock.

          One of my favorite items is this corduroy shearling collar trucker jacket from Mango Man
          https://shop.mango.com/mn/men/jacket..._33027627.html

          I'm also a big fan of fair isle sweaters and ugly Cosby sweaters. I have this patchwork sweater from Brooks Brothers:

          I've been eyeing this sweater from Isabel Marant but it's way outside my budget and now its sold out anyways:
          https://www.isabelmarant.com/us/isab...4009937sv.html

          When the rest of the outfit is understated, it can be easy to naturally incorporate a statement piece into your outfit.

          I also think age matters a lot, too. I'm 31, so I can get away with that shearing jacket for now; but I will probably have to retire it another five to ten years.

            I have a pair of light pink jeans that I wear in the summer. I typically combine it with a navy polo and white minimal sneakers.

            I also love floral pattern shirts. Grand Frank and John Henric sell some of my favorites. Here are a couple of examples:

            I also have this shirt:
            https://johnhenric.com/us/shirts/shirt-octavian

            I typically wear these shirts as shown, with dark slacks or dark wash denim. You would be surprised how many people tell me these love these shirts when I wear them. So long as the rest of the outfit it toned down it can look really nice.

            I also wear these shirts under crew neck sweaters. My wife always loves that look.

              I'd say this. Probably.

                Not sure if adventurous is the right word, but when I'm going to a show or feeling particularly punk rock for a day I'll throw on a denim jacket I've been putting some band patches on, with this bad boy as the centerpiece: https://windhand.bigcartel.com/produ...kull-backpatch

                I generally tend to stick to Dappered stuff the rest of the time, so if I'm wearing it around people who don't know me super well I'll get a side eye, but at the end of the day that jacket is probably the article of clothing I care the most about (with my Barbour Beaufort and Gustin jeans close behind)

                  I've been meaning to start doing that with a jacket for shows. Surprised to see someone here who likes Windhand, since stoner doom is probably out of the musical tastes of most people that are "dappered," but I give a "Hell yeah!" to you good sir!

                          Nice - another good brand I didnt hear of. I bought a floral shirt from Bonobos, paired with white denim.

                              Mango is a decent brand. It’s a fast fashion brand a lot like Zara or H&M but you can find some decent quality with a careful eye. One of my favorite things about this jacket is that it’s a tremendous value. Whereas similar jackets in this price range is drenched in artificial fabrics, this jacket is almost entirely cotton. It’s a great affordable alternative to real wool shearling.

                                Cool thread/idea.

                                For me, the most adventurous outfit I worse was searsucker suit.



                                I only wore the suit a couple of times and for one season. I was always very uncomfortable in the suit. I mean the suit fit me fine. No problems there. The suit/style just wasn't for me. Which is odd to say, as I received a couple of compliments from strangers while wearing the suit. Either because the suit was so unique, or because I did look good in it!

                                Recently in the cooler months of the year I have started to wear a turtleneck. For some this might not be an adventurous outfit. And the more I wear a turtleneck, the less adventurous the look is. At first though, definitely a new look for me.
