I picked up a pretty nice looking light grey blazer from Zara for ~$85 a few weeks ago. I'm not sure how that brand is looked at, but I've enjoyed the few things I've bought from there. I chose the grey because I thought it would be a more versatile color than the navy blue they had.

The problem is that I can't find any shoes that look "good" with slimmer fitting jeans. And honestly, I have no idea what kinds of shoes do go with slimmer jeans. I was thinking of a mid-rise boot with the bottom of the jean over it, but I can't find any in my price range. What about loafers? 

 

I should include that I'm 6' and a pretty slim 160 pounds. My budget is $150. I'd prefer black over brown. 

 

I'd really appreciate the help! Thanks in advance!

 

 


Ankle boots are a good choice.

I'm at a point where I buy slowly and of quality, but I also know I'll never be at the point where I only buy nice things--just a few items here and there. Where do chinos rank on the versatility/durability spectrum? My perception of that spectrum goes something like this:

Shoes/Leather Goods
Outerwear
Denim

...

...

...

Teeshirts
Socks
Underwear


Shoes and outerwear I'm good with at the moment, and I'm not going to replace my shrink-to-fits until I have to. Where do Chinos fall? Can a nicer pair genuinely be considered an investment, the way good shoes and coats pay for themselves over time? I'm also in the market for a wallet and a backpack, but if I learn here I'm wrong about chinos I'll go for the pants instead.

I am trying to work towards purchasing less clothing but clothing that is higher quality. I have a list that I am compiling. I purchased a pair of Alden indy boots x J. crew. My first foray into raw denim with a pair of UB 301s has been enjoyable so I am looking to invest in some true high quality denim. Also, I am starting dental school last year so I need a practical, big, strong backpack. Also, twice a week I will be in scrubs so I am looking for some versatile layering options like a w+h hoodie. Also, I have signed up for everlane so I am hoping they can be the source for my basic blank tees.
What other options/items am I missing in order to begin building a high quality wardrobe.

Barbour Quilted Hevleyn/Linnesdale Jacket
Roy Denim
w+h hoodie
topo designs day pack

You could also try a (low-top?) wholecut in a plain toe.  They give off a boot-vibe without being an actual boot.  Just got a pair and I like them with my APCs.

What's that second pair? What site are the pics from?
post #4419 of 4947

I'm looking for some inexpensive chinos in about 33/36 or 34/36 size.  A lot of more brands don't seem to have inseams long enough.  Would you kind folks be of assistance?

Slim tapered wool (or linen... or anything interesting really) trousers. ~$100 or less

Uniqlo perhaps? UU? Yoox? Thanks.

anyone have good recommendations for brands that make solid 'tall' sizes?

 

i get my dress shirts MTM, but if i'm not wearing a button down to the office (casual friday and whatnot), i have to wear at least a long sleeve polo or sweater due to tattoos, and sleeves are always an issue. for reference, my sleeve length on my MTM shirts is 37.5 (im 6'3", 225).

Looking for something cheap that's similar to these ll. bean mocs. Sold out or I'd just get these.

Can anyone recommend decent quality mostly white sneakers similar to these (lanvin, dior homme) that aren't $500+?  Also preferably no gaudy logo and not adidas/nike.  Thanks

 

Lanvin PECCARI EMBOSSED LEATHER SNEAKER WITH LACES

Dior Homme Suede-Trim Sneakers

Was going to say Blanc & Noir, but their site appears to be down at the moment.
