Ultimate noob thread - recommend me X in my wardrobe - post questions here please. - Page 274

Well, "blending," isn't quite what I'm going for. Just wondering if there's maybe anything more interesting out there than a simple beanie.

Any rules/tips you can share about rolling or cuffing pants? I see a fair amount of people doing it in WAYWRN threads. I assume this is more of a casual look so should be done with jeans or chinos. Any other tips?

Looking for a few items to add, would appreciate some recommendations and advice

1. Slim fit Cabourn-eseque cameraman. Urban Outfitters (gasp) has one by All Son and Penfield has the tweed Kasson, but neither has caught my eye.

2. Grey tweed blazer with suede elbow patches. Found one on Mr. Porter by PRL, but it has leather elbow patches and is not quite grey.

3. Some beater chukkas. Bought a pair of McNairys but the sizing is off.

Need a casual unstructured blazer, not sure what color.  Hopefully something I could wear with raw denim and cotton trousers alike.  Any recommendations on the brand or color?

I have no dress shoes, but also 'need' a pair of black boots for everyday - should I cop black leather desert boots, Y/N?

You can find similar styles with better brands, and for the same price if you check out places like Rue La La or Gilt or eBay or thrift stores.  There is nothing wrong with that shoe in and of itself other than the fact that it is Zara, and thus poorly made (won't last long).  Whether or not it "looks good" will depend on what you are wearing it with.

 

So, either buy the boots and post a picture of yourself wearing them in the What Are You Wearing Today thread on this site, or browse the threads and see if you can figure out what a better brand would be. Either way, if you want oppinions concerning the boots you'll need to post pictures so that people can tell you if it looks good with what you're wearing, or bad.

I say go for it.

Any idea where I can find a nice pair of gray (ideally mid-gray) wool gloves with brown suede palms? A nice lining would be a bonus.

 

The closest pair I've found so far has been the Woolrich John Rich & Bros Wool and Leather Gloves on Park and Bond: http://www.parkandbond.com/product/84423979 But not only are they sold out, I know for a fact that they're actually navy plaid, not "dark charcoal."

Don't have any experience with Dockers, what's the quality like and roughly what price would you want to pay for them to be decent value?

Also, is there much difference between Nudie and Edwin jeans if they're similarly priced?

The fabric itself leaves a little to be desired, and the construction is very basic, but they are built well enough. I'd buy them at under $30, which isn't hard considering how frequently they discount their webstore inventory, plus the frequent sales they run. In terms of fit, I like the slimmer fit of the SF Tapered more than the looser Alpha, but that's somewhat personal. I have half a dozen pairs of the former in my closet that see heavy rotation. The D1 Slim fits fine through the waist, seat, and thigh, but really needs tapering. Got a couple pairs of D1 Slim cords (listed as "soft khaki" for some reason) in nice colors.

Cheers. The SF Tapered were the ones I was looking at. Might have to get some although the price, even in sales, seems a bit marked up in the UK.
