That means wearing more shirts, blazers and dress shoes/ boots. But I`m a bit unsure which pants are a good choice, for being dressed up but not looking to formal. I thoughted of this dior jeans. Do you think that would be a nice pick, combined with two button navy blue blazer and slim boots or dress shoes? And second do you know some brands, models that could be a cheaper alternative for the diors? 





Further I would be glad, if you could give me more generall advices for "casual" dressing up. I`m an absolute noob in that area of style. blush.gif

Thank you!

Say no to black jeans. Find the dark indigo one, and I think this pair of jeans would be too slim for blazers and jackets.
For guide for casuals... watch good movies , find who wears cool clothes, and try it or research about it.

I really hope this was meant to be a joke.

I got a scuff on some black lizard-skin shoes (so you can see a bit of the lighter color underneath the black). Could someone recommend a good polish/conditioner to fix this? My understanding is you can't generally use the same product as for non-exotic leather.

Looking for a very casual white oxford cloth button down, which has to be from a Europe based retailer for the sake of easy returns.

 

I'm a 35" chest guy, so needs to be skinny, and I want to wear it untucked so can't be too long. Would check out BoO but I can't find any white ones in europe in the right size to try.

thanks. that looks like a neutral color though, so I assume I would still see the scuff after applying it. it doesn't look like they offer a black version.

Have you considered J.Lindeberg? I find their clothes to be too slim for me, but their XS would be perfect for you (35" chest).

 

Here is a link to their white oxford shirt. They may also have this shirt in 'super slim' fit, though I don't know if they could get much slimmer than this cut!

I'm still looking for a white mid to high top sneaker for spring and summer. I have a couple leather sneakers (MMM and W+H) but want to go w/ mid or high top.

 

Budget is up to $700, but I might use part ($200-$300) of that money for a light cardigan for 'colder' spring days, so keep that in mind. Of course, I may just nab 

a cheap one from uniqlo and use the rest the money on shoes. Or I could buy a pair of black leather derbies, oxfords, or boots (dont own any), Or I could just buy nothing. So many options, I don't know what to do. SF, please help me.

 

Some options I like =

Definitely out of those 3 I'd say the Ann D ones are the best looking. Have you tried Rick Owens? I know they have some nice sneakers. Something like this perhaps? I think those are barely within your budget.

Thank you!

Recommend me a jean similar to Dior Homme Raw MIJ 19cm. I have a pair that I love but I'm having a hard time paying current retail for them because the last time I bought them they were under $300 (oh, such a long time ago...)

I wear a 28.

Obviously, they won't have the extremely long inseam, but that's OK with me since I'm 5'6" anyway.

Thanks!

EDIT: I see that they're still under $400 (for some reason I thought I saw them at like $465 last time I was shopping), but would still like some other options to consider.
