You know what I'm getting it confused...I like the herringbone. It is subtle enough. I meant black/white checkered. It's like the pattern you seen on old Vans.

Edit:
Houndstooth, was trying to describe this the whole time redface.gif

b/w houndstooth pants are tough to pull off imho, mainly dependent on check size

We have one of those and she's completely incompetent, time to do like the brazilians do due to tax, fly to the us shop fly back.

Acne had these out in 2012 I think, though more check than houndstooth

I think it would look great if you paired with olive/beige/earth tones a la Lemaire

Do you guys take care of your more 'formal' footwear like your leather derbies? Like using shoe trees, polish, conditioner etc.

^Good point. I brought this up in the MC thread but I think some patterns lend itself better on particular clothing i.e. a jacket versus pants. I'd definitely wear that jacket, and the fact that the houndstooth pattern seems more subdue. Another example is the polo coats up on No Man Walks Alone, here and here. I picked up the navy but would not mind either the houndstooth or herringbone, too. I would also wear the patterns as a suit. However, as an odd pair of trousers I am less inclined to wear it especially with my present wardrobe. A pair of flat front trousers in flannel wool is more up my alley. Flannel wool has the weight and detail in fabric while still maintaining an elegant look/drape, and IMO in the realms of CBD (conservative business dress).

Speaking of Lemaire, I think I can definitely pair the knits and coats I picked up past season with the houndstooth trousers but I am not adventurous enough. Oh well

^I use shoes trees with all my shoes except sneakers and artisanal footwear e.g. Guidi

Edit:
Houndstooth not herringbone

With a regular black/white houndstooth, I've odd trousers work just fine.

Absolutely. Shoes start to look like shit after a while if you don't, especially if you live in a climate with winter weather.

I totally agree!

I live in rainy England, and keep all of my shoes and boots with wooden shoe trees, in shoe bags, in their original box.

That way they last much longer!!!

bbc says argentina has a limit on untaxed packages but doesn't mention a total number of packages.

however it sounds like absolute shit to get any packages from abroad so fuck it basically

*most epurchases will not be mailed to your house, you gotta pick 'em up at the customs office, meaning hours of time
*50% tax after your first 25£ of stuff each year

and yes, formal shoes get cream, polish, reno, trees

The gov is severely limiting the outflow of money and the availability of foreign currency. Basically the Argentinians don't trust their own currency. I'm not an expert but considering they followed the kind and disinterested advice of the IMF in the 90s they had a steep climb ahead of them to do anything positive.

^man, those guys are the worst.

Mr. Unabashedly Prep put his home-made Evisu Daicock on the wrong side of his trousers

 

 

edit: there's actually a lot more I'm confused about.  What are the khaki bits of fabric tied around the arms on the 2 young guys?  And does our main main have a dark brown one on his left arm?

I read somewhere, that there's a black currency market, where you get double the money when you exchange from dollars to pesos or what Argentinean money is called.

The entire country almost went belly up 10ish years ago, I think they were even closer to the edge than Greece was.

Re armbands, guessing a tweed run or some kind of pro-khaki rally
