I usually wear a white small collared COS shirt with a pair of self cropped black Uniqlo pants. Looks pretty cool given the price. Other options are hidden placket, shirt being very long in the back, elongated rise on the trousers, stacks, cropped, etc...

 

The shoes play a big role of course. You probably shouldn't go for "menswear"  derbies if you worry about looking too formal. A wedge sole derby or side zips is probably a wiser choice. Common Projects and Red Wing postman look good and are affordable.

 

Thanks, I definitely got know what you meant. I'd wear white placket shirts, elasticated waist cotton or wool trousers and black derbys or boots all days, but sometimes I feel w/o knit or bomber it would be just too formal looking for class or office job for example. Even when I do know that my clothes aren't regular menswear. They're more like jil, dries, cos kind of clothes and I'd never wear ties and such. Maybe I'd need start wearing more playful sneakers? to me derbys and boots are too cool to be forgotten lol

also i don't think there's problem wearing that kind of clothes when going clubs...

Nah, of course it is better suited for going out than say school or typical desk job.

Sneakers will sure make it more casual but then you also need to tone down the formality on the shirt and trousers to avoid clashing or just looking sloppy.

 

I would def wear sneakers with cropped trousers (snowmanxl had a good fit of this a while back) but maybe not with pressed front, full length wool trousers.

 

If you like dress shirts, you probably like white long sleeve tee's as well. I had never owned one until recently simply because it's something I thought I wouldn't wear much. Saw some fits here and found a nice one. Turned out to be a great purchase. Try to get one with a scooped neckline and slightly longer in the body and it will be surprisingly elegant and versatile.

i think by putting on an ocbd over a white poplin shirt it makes the outfit 10X less formal and you can prob get away with it without outerwear.

just received my balenciaga pants from yoox. really pissed off...i've already filed a return, so its not that big of a deal, but whatever they sent me are not by balenciaga and seem to be a knock off. i guess for $150 I should have known better but I've never had this problem with them before. anyone ever had similar experiences?

 

here's a comparison of some of the details..

 

 

 

 

 

You can quickly identify the differences. on their product page there is the classic hardware stud above the pocket. nothing on mine. button fly enclosure on mine, rather then the clasp. patch on these pants is supposed to be on the inside next to the pocket, not on the back on the pant. worst of all, the hardware is cheap and flat rather than the studs they use. argh. 

 

edit: the balenciaga tag has a faint sticker rip. not sure what used to be on there but a quick google search with the product code in the tag led me to ioffer. I suppose it is possible that someone might have done a quick return/switch with something else.

Weird, I wouldn't think balenciaga was popular enough to knock off.

^ I meant the clothes.  Isn't like 75% of their men's store just sneakers?

no, from what I've seen they've always had a full on seasonal runway and boutique line up, although the clothes sell out pretty fast. the sneakers and shoes probably account for most of their mens sales though.

Keep in mind on yoox those pants could be authentic and just several seasons (or even years) old. If they don't match the description, it may well have been a bogus return, yeah. But tag/sticker rips don't prove that either, b/c almost all yoox stuff is stuff stores didn't sell, and they (stores/yoox, whoever) often even cut the retail tags so you can't see retail price or source. Yoox is an outlet after all
