I've been wearing brogues, closed, infact, with jeans for years.  Don't sweat it. In fact, it was my default for years - never wore trainers with jeans. I didn't barely distinquish between oxford and bluchers: I even wore black bluchers with suits but preferred the closed shoes with jeans - cleaner lines, that was what was sold to me, not due to formality. Much prefer the closed photo with jeans. Less bulk.
Nice tumblr, Coxy. What tie-knot do you use?
 Plenty of tight suits on SF. I think there is a fine line somewhere - somewhere a suit fits well and nods its head in the direction of current fashion, I suppose, whilst elsewhere it is 'fashion victim'. A tighter suit would be fine with normal lapels and a correct button height, perhaps. I prefer slimmer trousers infact, personally. I still think Daniel C looks good though - but the suits in Casino etc were better.
 I reckon Daniel Craig really shows that an athletic physique does wonders for clothes.  He really looks great. I think the collars of some of the shirts I have seen in Spectre are a bit too pointy, (I didn't like the shirts in Skyfall) and I think the suits were too tight in Skyfall. There was discussion about suits being too tight for stunts and that there were different suits for different shots. Well, in some of the Spectre shots he has a split suit, down the centre...
 I think we cuss the ill-fitting shirts that are so baggy I for one notice that often fashion shirts are made to be snug around the collar - especially if it is not to go with a tie. SoI prefer that over 90s bagginess. Incidentally, my made to measure shirt is probably too tight with a tie. It's not perfect but it is not a disaster.  For one thing it needs an iron before I can really see. I also need to see a photo of the whole model and how it hangs in general.The shirt...
 Hi Foxy - I hear you about the t-shirt thing. The thing I don't get is skinny jeans and shoes which creates a funny effect down the bottom of the leg. I personally would wear trousers with wider bottoms, less skinny, and choose smart shoes - but in this case, wear chukkas, say. Less metro (less fashion-forward), but still smarter and classic. The current look draws the eye to your ankles. Women are supposed to notice (and admire) your shoes, (I hear) but surely am not...
 My TM lewin shirts last 4 years - worn once a week - washing on a 15minute cold cycle with a 6 monthly 'SF-approved' vinegar and Napisan soak to remove detergent residue has extended them past the 2 years older shirts lasted. Infact, after they get retired they still have several years in them. Never a tumble-dryer in sight - no shrinkage discerned at all. We live in a world where people will insist on dryers - and fabric conditioner.    There is a TM full cutaway line...
I'm a 7F to 7.5F in the 026 last.Bit of a wide foot - got to ensure I am wearing thin socks... PM sent - cheers
 +1I also recommend not trying too hard - I personally find that hipster and fashion always makes me look childish. Classic all the way.  I always wear proper shoes, never trainers,  to clean the lines. Clothes have to fit but I have never hemmed jeans. The secret is to be in proportion- as a matter of fact, I do tuck always - apart from t-shirts and polos because otherwise I look frumpy. I always wear classic clothes so I have an excuse to tuck in. Another thing that...
CD, my Seamaster has been losing time over the last few months - next to useless. I was about to take it to a horologist in Buleen. Instead, over the break, I took it to a man who operates from a small kiosk in a department store in Mexico City. He opened the back, (with some difficulty), prodded a small part - I think it was the mainspring, and told me to come back in a few days if it wasn't improved. The watch is back to normal and I did not part with a cent! (I asked my...
