Has anyone used the Buyee service for Y! JP auctions? Thoughts?

Krish,

I'd send her flowers to her workplace, I had no idea but according to MsDB9 women love that and I got bonus points for it....I think it only works once though haha

Get creative, pick her up after work for a late night dinner or surprise her in some manner she would never expect. My lady doesn't really care much for material things so I am constantly trying to come up with new ideas like this. I have the benefit of the ocean so I do pleasure cruises, beach dinners, etc. Depending on where you live there are probably a lot of places you could go to

She can't be working that late on weekends right? If she is do something saturday night (I hope she isn't working sundays)

I wear navy pants maybe 90% of the time, so I don't know where this can't where navy pants is coming from.

Well I think the idea is that they sorta look too slick, for want of a better word, in informal situations.

but SW&D is about creating minor juxtapositions anyway, so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Wearing navy trousers is not really a big deal. Finding a pair is the real problem. There's a pair by Missoni that is pretty cool (not the pair sold on Mr. Porter or Yoox...)

I don't like navy trousers, I'm always scared I'm gonna buy a pair of black pants and when I walk outside I'll realize they're navy

Ughh, Goyard bag.... And black and orange.. If another young mom pushing her baby and using her phone while walking carrying a Goyard bag slams into me again I'm gonna snap. Total bags for showing upper middle class status. Get her a bright red Guidi GB0!!

Edit: like this, total nerd stuff she'll never enjoy

The argument is that they don't work well with a coat and tie, not that they can't be worn in general. Navy pants look best with tan or grey sport coats, but neither of those get much love on that side of the forum. Grey sport coats are said to often look like orphaned suit jackets, and don't pair well with much else besides navy pants anyway. Tan sport coats are rare, and hard to pair with most trousers, as they don't lend enough contrast (since most sport coats are dark, most trousers are light).

Obviously, it's not an argument without controversy, but that's the argument.

FWIW, GDL loves them and wears them well.

Adding: should be noted that much of MC is obsessed with certain archetypes. Much of that "whnay's good taste" thread, for example, is just about the tastes of a certain class of elites in the Eastern side of the US that (mostly) disappeared in the '80s or so. That class didn't wear navy odd pants (at least not as much as grey or brown), so it's not considered in keeping with that kind of look. Those obsessions aren't shared on this side of the board, so it's a totally different goal, stylistically.

This sound good?

No comments on this?

Of those two burgundy.
post #96146 of 109053
And if you didn't have to choose between those two?
(Haven't bought tie, pocketsquare or tiebar yet so none of those are set in stone)
post #96147 of 109053
Grey or black with some sort of texture.
post #96148 of 109053
Raf and dries wear Navy pants pretty much exclusively and usually look pretty sharp.
post #96149 of 109053
...and they go well with the beloved white shoes and sneakers.

yup, that's exactly my thoughts, along with my "grain of salt" considerations.

I'll see how it goes.

After 5 odd years on this forum, that's what it comes down to. $200 dollar trousers (seems somewhat reasonable for some reason), I'll see how they go.
