lol wtf is wrong with the belt? smile.gif

It's just a braided suede belt from Anderson's.

What would you suggest in its place in that fit?
post #101672 of 117666

i think it's fine.. the suggestion would probably be a plain leather belt in a similar colour to the shoes.

Braided belts are really casual. It's really inappropriate with a blazer. (Some would say they don't go with anything.) If you're going to wear it, wear it with shorts or a really casual trouser.

i'd have to disagree with that man..  that just sounds like something a guy who hates those belts would say.

I honestly don't know any better when it comes to belts (and a lot of things I suppose), but reading that Caveat, it kinda made sense.

Now I still think it was a fine choice, and I really like the belt, but I can see it being more appropriate as you describe though.

What throws off what you said Caveat is the 'awful' comment, however your explanation was much more logical and understandable.

blah.. "serious fit" time. jeans look a little janky here but they look good once they settle. I wanted a more relaxed fit over the tight fit of my t000s

i honestly don't mind the best and i think the color goes well with the shoes but i really don't know any of the "rules."

i wear a raw leather belt every day, fwiw. although i want to get a ribbon belt for the summer time.

Sorry for the harsh comment. I don't think the belt itself is awful. It's just an awful choice with a blazer. There's an expression we have in the southern US: "country gone to town." It describes someone from a rural area who steps into a refined setting without any of the sophistication necessary to fit in. The jeans with braided belt look under a blazer reminds me of this expression. No offense.

Also, I think the color matches the shoes almost too well. Maybe that's just me. Overall I just don't like that fit much at all tbh.

i think it's the best elisix fit yet.

Cole, man..

slimmer jeans would tie up this look. invest in something other than levis. also, idk if its just the angle or the way the jeans fall, but those side-zips look huge and bulbous, when in theory MMM should be slim and sleek.

What size feet do you have Cole?

post #101682 of 117666

for Cole : the jacket seems very short, even at the sleeves

Truf. I was walking through the Marais today and thought of you when I almost purchased some falafel while navigating crowds of the four kinds.
The amount of walking I've done in the last four days alone has convinced me that New Balance and Bathrobes is the Way of the Future.

 

le Marais as in le Marais in Paris  ? You live there ?

thanks for the advice guys. the pic was taken at waist level so it might skew the proportions. also, both shirts are long and my arm is at my face so that's probably what makes the length weird because its normally pretty long for what it is. I guess I should have worn my black t000s. I wear a size 44 in these which is hard to work with considering I'm like a 29 waist and hardly 145 lbs
