L.P. writes: "All too often I witness men wearing a blazer, shirt and tie, coupled with jeans and sneakers. Is this the 2008 version of the mullet?" Answer: You aren't kidding—it's business up top, party below, and doofus from top to bottom. The only way to salvage any of this idea would be to mix the jeans with a blazer that doesn't look anything like a suit coat. Maybe a shirt jacket like the M+O model shown here.
