  I'll keep that in mind. The Sam Hober tie I'm ordering is supposed to be 3 inches, as well. I think that will likely be the best versatile tie width for me. I own wider ties too, but I think past 3 1/4 inches is too wide for my tastes.   I normally just wear slim-fit polos and chambray work shirts with chinos. I guess the look I've sported today is an awkward in-between of casual and more formal attire that doesn't translate well for me, then.
  1. I stand corrected, but I don't think it could look all that bad. I think it can be a rakish, non-chalant look. Apparently, it doesn't look right for me.   2.  I was under the impression that, more or less, the belt must closely match the shade of the shoes. Granted, it's not the same exact shade of brown as the suede chukkas.   3 & 4.  It's supposed to be a slim fit dress shirt, too. I guess I've got an unusual build; my waist has a quite a bit of suppression, and...
Occasionally I sport a dress shirt and tie at my university. I'm not sure if this fits in better with the Men's Clothing or Streetwear and Denim style more. I'm wearing a tie just because, not because I needed to, necessarily. I enjoy wearing them, and they're quickly becoming a hobby of mine. I'm ordering a midnight blue grenadine from Sam Hober as well.    
Here's my first post in the thread. I'm not sure if this fits in better with the Men's Clothing or Streetwear and Denim style more.

  Thanks. I was hoping that they could function as washable pants, but I may order an alternative pair from Relco. I know this is the Jump the Gun thread, but does anybody know about Relco sta-prests? Also, are they about the same, or just a little bit looser overall than the JTG ones? I like the way sta-prests look, but I don't want to mistakenly get something too tight.
Quick question, do you know if the sta-prest trousers (cotton/polyester, navy) are meant to be washed like the old Levi's were, or are they dry-cleaning only? I like the look of these pants, and many of their other clothing. Mod style is great.
I'm nearly 23. My style is basically going from a (baggy pants and shirts) non-descript business casual look to more modern with elements of 1960s mod style as well, the way I see it. Since several months ago, I have started buying more tailored or slim fitting clothing. Right now, I wear mostly slim fit khakis from Old Navy, and Land's End Canvas polo shirts and chambray work shirts, and more recently I bought a fitted white dress shirt. I'm still in the middle of my...
Those look good. I'm still considering a black Bexley chelsea boot myself, although I'm leaning in the Jermyn direction. It has the pointier toe.
I'm considering buying a pair of black chelsea boots from the company Bexley, and plan on wearing with either casual wear (chinos, jeans, slacks), or occasionally a suit. Should I go with the Flager or Jermyn pair?   Flager:   http://www.bexley.com/Bexley/shoe-Flager-BOOTSPRD-EN.htm?blocReferrer=14040   Jermyn:   http://www.bexley.com/Bexley/shoe-Jermyn-BOOTSPRD-EN.htm?blocReferrer=16249
