I was just perusing the Grenson website and came across these that may be the much discussed 'G1': http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/shop/acklam http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/shop/egton They generally look quite nice. I don't really know why the new Grenson doesn't get a lot of love here: if you're a younger bloke then Grenson offer the best range of stylish shoes at affordable prices, and I'm not talking about RRP - it's very easy to pick up Grensons off of ebay, brand...
Ahhh okay, not to worry.
Where are you based? UK or US?
Out of style? Absolutely not - it's about what looks good and what doesn't:Above is tapered - it's crisp and clean.The above is straight leg - it's sloppy and messy. It's even worse if you're wearing shoes because it completely envelops them.Your jeans will last an absolute lifetime as well if they're tapered because they won't be scrapping against the pavement: they sit just above the shoe rather than falling all around it in a big mess.As for the highlighted text, the...
Bizarre - in my neck of the woods, myself and nearly all my friends (24+) tuck their shirts in - it just looks better, checked or not.I don't think it looks 'dorky', but it does look crisp and clean - it only looks good though if your trousers / jeans fit properly: if they're a straight cut and form a big mess on top your shoe then it probably wouldn't look all that great. Your jeans need to taper.
Why does he need to give up jeans? He's not ancient, is he. Jeans look good if they're the right colour and the right fit. As I said above, go for the tapered Levis 519.
I'd say tuck in the shirts as well - I'm 24 and I always tuck in my shirts. It just looks a million times better. Also, I'd say that unless you have very large legs / thighs, I'd scrap the 505 Levis and move onto Levis 519: these are a slim fit jeans that taper so the jeans sit just about the shoe, i.e., unlike 505's they won't envelop your shoe so you'll actually be able to see it. The 519's simply offer a cleaner and smarter look.
There wasn't a really a deluge of input for this thread but I can sort of answer my own question for the benefit of others: The best brand I came across in terms of cheapness against quality is House of Frasers own brand 'Linea' - their merino wool jumpers are normally £50 but 9 times out of 10 they're in the sale (like they are currently). They're much better quality than Uniqlo and if like me you're a medium in Uniqlo, I'd recommend you go for a small in linea and...
Grensons make the best insofar as price is concerned.
