To be frank, that's a hideous outfit. Too much washed out green.
Mj Bale new winter lookbook: http://www.mjbale.com/lookbooks/autumn-winter2013 10x better than Herringbone. And they have put some cheap sale stock up: http://www.mjbale.com/on-sale
As I have said before, I think a Mac with a removeable liner covers all your bases in Melbourne, work outer-wear wise.Quite a few places sell them, you can pay anywhere from $300 - $1k. I have one from MJ Bale which was a steal at $200, and a thinner one from Jack Spade which cost twice as much as isn't as good quality!My outerwear wardrobe is fairly well in line with tobias described:Casual I have- Harrington- Rain Slicker- Short Duffle- Canvas 4 pocket biker jacket -...
Noir denim is the house brand of Up There Store in Melb. They have some interesting non-raw options: http://www.uptherestore.com/blog/noir/2011/10/noir-collection02-summer-jean I kinda want this one: http://www.uptherestore.com/product/jean001-stonewashed I am no denim aficionado, but these guys seem to know their stuff and so I imagine the quality and detailing are pretty good. *edit not sure if I am just kidding myself, though, and may as well get an $80 pair of...
The other thing is that, personally, I don't even really like the end result. As a reward for putting up with months of awkwardness and discomfort you end up with.... a pair of jeans that looks "well worn", i.e. worn out. It seems like a lot of raw denim afficionados then go and buy a new pair and start all over again, keeping the old ones as some sort of sartorial trophy, a monument to their ability to put up with discomfort. When, exactly, do they look gooandnd fit...
"Raw" denim is something I don't understand (unless you are in a profession that allows you to wear jeans every day). 6-18 months of wearing the same pair of pants? For those of us in suit and tie jobs, how many weekends does that translate to? Sleeping in jeans? Blue dye everywhere? Not sure I'll ever be bothered to go through that. I find it a bit gross, really. No matter what the bacteria count says ^^.
The Summer Light Navy Chino is a lovely shade of blue, a touch lighter than navy (lighter than the other Navy Chino fabrics Luxire has, which are fairly dark), with a really nice light weight. Some may even think it too light for dress pants, but I think it'd be fine.My only concern would be, as with most cotton pants, maintaining the crease - perhaps get the stitched crease like someone else suggested above.
You should be able to...
Do your nicer coats have hoods, though? I don't like getting a wet head, and I look silly in hats RE PlacketsI have both placket and non-placket, and I think it hardly makes a difference.If anything, I come down on the side of having a placket, as it just seems to give the shirt a sturdier construction at the front.Also if you ever plan on taking your tie off, I think the look of a placket is a bit nicer.Pocketed shirts should always have a placket, though, IMO. Some...
Wish you had mentioned you were getting this fabric, and I would've told you to avoid it. That fabric, and it's cousin the Blue Summer Chambray, are the worst Luxire fabrics out of the 30 or 40 swatches I have. They almost feel synthetic. I can't understand why they stock them, they aren't suitable for shirting at all.Having said that, they really are the only disappointing fabrics I have received. The rest are great. You got unlucky.This one is much, much...
