I own loake camdens, I think someone posted a pair in navy in this thread, but mine's beige. They are on the same last as loake kemptons but appear much bulkier due to the light colour and 360 welt + crepe sole. I can only wear them with washed denim and some very light coloured ensemble up top otherwise they will stick out... I am considering recrafting them with kempton's dainite or double leather sole....
du in teger's post looked familiar.....?
last year was the year that I started to read (English or translated into English books) again. being SE Asian I had a lot to catch up, literary-wise, to most western bibliography... and probably skewed by whatever's locally available I started with Umberto Eco's Prague Cemetery and now on to Foucault's Pendulum. I had a hunch that his writing would engross me by multifolds had I known a little more about European history. Finished Unbearable Lightness of Being last week...
MoK is our heritage hero. Though I can't really see the look emulated by somebody scrawny or not having facial hair.. lol

Just curious.. what sort of belt will compliment these? I'm guessing grey suede?
can it be said... that CM suits are actually geared to flatter non-ideal physique (what with all the tailoring, altering, button stance, colorway, etc), while SWD suits, on the other hand, benefits those with near-ideal physique, or those with "inherent swag factor", much more than those without... IME some footwear choices are safer to start with e.g. chelsea boots
great thread parker, I am exactly at the point where I wanted to mix in some blazers casually.. I just avoid the uber-structured look e.g. thrifted 80s heavy padded shoulder double breasted orphaned glen plaid jacket... lol there are also other brands out there like Barena that have nice jackets but I don't recall anyone in in here wearing them yet. lastly though, it is quite noticeable that some of the guys in the pics on this thread already have other "non-business-y"...
i like the casual cotton with 5% spandex stuff, very comfy, like the aforementioned washed cotton blazer and the charcoal herringbone cotton slim cargo trou.. iirc synth wore the latter in one of his fits. also actually i know no other brand making herringbone casual pant with such fabric..
I wonder if Vass can make chelsea boots?
