 Can you say why, specifically? And perhaps why the Epaulet thread is on the SWD side of the forum?
 When speaking of "weirdness" I assume you're referring to the perception of the non-#menswear innocent bystanders around you? I like pointed end knits because from a distance they don't offend anyone. I also just don't like straight ends as a personal preference; they make me feel as someone was weaving my tie and decided to stop before they finished.
Anyone have any luck getting fades from the Ring Ring denim? I just did cool machine wash, hang dry, and they look almost exactly the same, save for a trace amount of increase in texture.
 For casual shirts, I think an alternative to the button down collar would be a semi-spread with shorter collar points instead of the large semi-spread dress shirt collar, as these shirts are not meant to be worn with a jacket.   [[SPOILER]]

Carmina from GF.
On a quest to find the perfect white sneaker.    I have read all of the online reviews and searched the board, but anyone have any aged pictures or thoughts on the durability of the all white handgrade sneakers?     Also, my View of Edo print just came in, and it is glorious. Pics once I get a chance to frame it.
I finally have an occasion to wear a suit tonight. Haven't really decided what I'm going with yet, and I'd like some thoughts. For some context, the event is at an upscale hotel in downtown Boston. The occasion is a graduation banquet from my professional academic program (I am not the one graduating). All of my colleagues will be there (ages 25-35), as well as our senior constituents (ages 40+). A 2-3 drink cap would probably be a good idea.   Options are: dark blue or...
