The wide stuff looks trendy to my eye, UC. Tom Ford-ish. Nothing wrong with that, but if you're aiming for classic, I think you're tipping too far from your skinny stuff.
I dig hacking pockets, both on tweedy sportcoats and casual/country suits. They can be done badly, sure, but so can anything. On a nicely waisted coat, they can look great. Just takes the right cloth and cut.
Would be more impressive were it less common on SF.
The color I disliked for another reason: Seems like an impractical choice for a guy getting wardrobe basics. Color too light for dressy events like interviews, and it lacks the appealing sleekness of a darker color for going out at night. But the "old mannish" comment is more about the shape, welt and style, and about how far removed the Strand is from what younger women are used to seeing. I've never had a college girl complement the sexy broguing on my AEs.As I...
This thread is old, but for future reference, that's not piping but binding. Piping is like what you see on pajamas. Looks like piping on a cake, and it protrudes from between two layers of cloth.

It's pretty simple, and binding material is sold at fabric shops.
Are you sure that isn't Moo above? He liked to show a little leg, as I recall. Maybe your days of scouring the globe are finally over.
The guy in the minidress?
If an item is clearly knackered in the pics and someone still buys it, too bad. It's one thing to try to prevent undetectable deception, another to try to save people from their own stupidity. If you can convince me to give you five grand for your used AEs, good on you.
Maybe the Macneil, if you're going for the retro Americana vibe. I actually like the clunky grandpa shoe trend, and was wearing it before it became a trend. But the Strand looks too businesslike. It looks like the shoe a guy would wear with a suit because he thought it was proper, rather than because he was putting a young twist on fogey style. To me, it doesn't say "I'm doing this on purpose;" it says, "I could only afford one pair of discounted bals and have pressed...
The Strands are nice, and good for conservative purposes, but they don't say "young guy out for a night on the town" to me. Pairing a clunky, slightly old-mannish shoe with that sort of youthful, trendy suit seems odd.
