Unlikely Style Inspiration: Alan From “The Hangover”

In “The Hangover” (both 1 and 2), Zach Galifianakis’ character Alan Garner is socially inept, moody, abrasive, and has a bad habit of drugging his best friends. He’s also, against all odds, totally endearing. Alan’s personal style is as questionable as his character–graphic tees, white jeans, man purses (“It’s a satchel!”), and impossibly large aviator sunglasses–but I have to admit I’m charmed by his outfits as well. Is it possible to put together a flattering, stylish ensemble inspired by a such a walking faux pas? Challenge accepted…
