White Belt - Page 3

post #31 of 41
not to resurrect the acerbic nature of the debate, but... what belts would one recommend wearing with white shoes (nubuck/leather/etc.)?

seok: What kind of white shoes? Sneakers? I'm currently wearing a white canvas Diesel belt with a seat-belt style buckle. I'm matching it with white Adidas flip-flops. Ah, I love Sundays. And Sunday brunches.

kent: say, a pair of white suede lace-ups?

Just how white is the suede? Suede is often cream and I can't say that I've really seen truly white suede shoes. What you want to avoid is matching a true-white belt with cream shoes. The only thing worse than not matching is almost-but-not-quite matching. I actually have a terrific cream suede belt that I rarely wear because I don't have cream-colored shoes -- only white sneakers. Sounds like we should swap That said, you should get a plain, dressy belt. Leather of any kind. Nubuck would be perfect as the texture is similar to your suede shoes. Most importantly no studs, holes or any kind of decoration beyond the buckle. The popular white belt is too often adorned with that kind of crap. Not only is that look played out, but it would also not match your dressy(ier) shoes.

So is spending $1000 on a suit while 11 million people face starvation in Ethiopia. We're a group of selfish, elitist bastards. And we sure as hell don't want to hear your sartorial dogma.
My boy, if you only want opinions expressed in the meekest possible way so that everyone's feelings are spared, I would avoid anything that I write in the future.

Depends a lot on the styling of the shoe, and the wearer. Not a case for matching the shoe and belt material perfectly, in my opinion. If these are white bucs (sorry, not the finest example), a ribbon or otherwise J. Press standard issue belt would work. If they're dressier/more modern, I don't know. I think the men's mags have been pimping white shoes lately though, maybe pick up an esq, GQ, or vitals.

Dude, You should go to Williamsburg or the Lower East Side.   I think that j. might need to give you mouth-to-mouth after that heart attack you get.  I'd take pictures, and own this place after that. I agree though. Once Dior Homme groupies start up on something, it's done.

Holy crap dude, I just noticed you passed 4000 posts?. Johnny has a big tattoo on his neck that says - DNR: Do not resuscitate in event of life-threatening hipster-induced trauma.

White belts are such a basic fashion accessory that I sincerely don't see pairing them with jeans as too hip or a fad....but maybe that's just me. It's not because Slimane goes around dressing a couple of rock stars and a legion of wannabes rock stars as complete clones that each part of the uniform worn separately are now a big no no...

Guess what, nothing is the new white belt, that's right, the new thing will be tucking in your shirt and wearing no belt at all. Extra points if your shirt blouses out over where the belt would be. Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb? ... A: (Disgusted 14-year-old girl style scoff) Uh, you don't know???
