You're dressed sharp and looking stylish, what do we have going on here?

I have two very distinct looks: My first look, left, is typically a very sharp, traditional, tailored suit and tie. The second, right, is a more downtown hip, more edgy chic with jeans, a blazer, a tie -- always with a tie. Then I add a funkier pair of glasses.
