Some real weirdos on that page.Weirdo beardos: Yeah beards seem all the rage right now, but seem to me to be the antithesis of the "clean look" that mods and skins have always aspired to.
Pretty nice but looks to me like it's crossed the line between boot and sneaker/trainer. The silhouette has been changed dramatically. I suppose it's a matter of taste and perception, but they really do look to me like "trainees".Very nice; just a serious step in the casual direction.
With polos, I tend to do up the top button if I'm wearing a coat, jacket, cardigan, etc., over it. Otherwise it's top button undone. I have a few Smedleys, and some have bigger necks than others, so some I wear with the top button done up, and some with it open. With Fred Perrys, Lacoste, etc., without something over it they've always had the top open.

My Dad's the only person I know Stateside that has aways pronounced it "Davis", and corrected me when I said it "Day-veez". When I was younger I just thought he was wrong! 😄
My travel combo backpack/shoulder bag is a Master-Piece "Potential" bag. It's sort of 1970s Sierra Nevada hiker mixed with jet-setter looking but has many pockets and is very well-built.

Just to clarify: I meant that most C.C. Filson's stuff falls outside the scope of "the look". As far as bags go, since bags were really not part of "the look" until the days of the casuals with their Head bags, I'd suppose that your bag should be well made and reflect your personal needs for space and accessibility: functionality and understated elegance.For an overnight/"away" bag, I have a small J.

Just a gut feeling 😄I do stand by my word about Filson-- excellent gear. Most of it certainly falls outside the scope of "the look" but the gear is indestructible.
If you're gonna drop that kind of dough on loafer(not saying YOU are Mr. K), migbt as well buy Aldens. Leaps and bounds better than a Weejun.
