I'm having the buyer's remorse on those Sebagos. Snap decision, and now just sitting around feeling cheap and un-american. Thanks a lot, styleforum. Looks like I'm out 6$ in return shipping.
There is 30% off all men's items at last call by neiman marcus, which seems like a good place to go if you want unusually patterned though well-constructed house brand dress shirts for 35$, or some Callaway polos. I picked up these sebagos for 100$, this after trying to convince myself I could afford a pair of oak street trail moccasins. I feel like I paid about what they're worth.
Thanks y'all. One of these weekends I need to get to NYC...no Club Monaco and the like around where I'm from. Any one have experience with MTM oxfords in the metro NY area? I'm in southern CT at the moment, but if I can get that done for a little bit more than I'd spend at BB I'd consider making an adventure out of it. Thought about picking up some oxfords from LEC during the fall sale but the collar kept me away. I need something to wear with a tie half the time; as a...
I'm looking to buy a couple oxford shirts for regular and versatile use. My hope is to find a few that I can get now, then wash and live in myself. But J Crew, Lands End Canvas, LL Bean Signature, and Rugby all advertise the washed and lived-in look of their oxfords. They're taking the fun out of it, or at least what I assume is the fun out of it. Not had the chance to wash and live in a new and quality oxford thus far in my life. So does anyone here recommend a brand of...
New releases up on the site. Nothing strikes as me as desirable, even in a "I can't wait until this goes on sale!" kind of way. Curious to hear how others feel; I'm not one to take chances with outerwear. http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignature/llb/shop/508733?page=new&subrnd=1&nav=sigsn-20
Hi there, I am looking to never wear another pair of Rockports, but I am also on a budget. So used but quality seems the way to go. I have a short, wide foot. I am looking for size 7E or 7EE. My bare foot on a ruler is about 4", +/- a 16th of an inch, at its widest. For comparison: On my feet are a pair of size 7 chucks. I can get my foot in them, but i deliberately skip the second eye-hole when I lace them and cannot tie them too tight. I have a pair of Katahdin boots...
Allow me to bump my post count by one: Collar: You're wearing a casual shirt, so chances are various and precise collar styles you see on dress shirts are out. I think the club collars floating around jcrew these days are ridiculous. Button-down collars are nice because they stay in one place. But uh, point collars are fine too? Bottom of the shirts are generally round...? Flat-bottomed shirts tend to be wide and of the Hawaiian or bowling style. If that's your thing,...
Thought about doing this. I live on Long Island Sound and my 501s just get a little wet and sandy through daily wear on the beach. Figure that over time the lower 5 inches might just absorb some salt and take on a lighter color. Going to look silly, but, hey, that's fine. Good to know pure ocean has a positive effect. My mom told me that, as a teenager, going into the ocean then rolling around on the beach was how she broke in a new pair of jeans. So I think I'll do it...
EMY-- All merrels I've owned wore quickly on pavement. But that may be because I tried to making hiking sneakers into sneakers. I only wear my chameleons on the trail now. The leather on all merrels I've had is inferior to that on my katahdins, though I've never had boots by them. Anyway, I love my katahdins more than any pair of boots or shoes i have or have had. I think the styling is more versatile than those merrels--the padded cuff and lugs make them seem a little...
Several students the other day commented about how I resemble Dr. Who. I do not watch the show, so the comment didn't mean much to me, but I'm familiar enough to have guessed at the identity of the man below. As it happens I got my first tweed jacket over the weekend. And I just ordered a few more bow ties. So it looks like I'll resemble Dr. Who more than before now, for better or worse.
