NOBD - I generally love your posts, but this one is off for me. Those are some serious Dad's, and there seems to be a lot of extra fabric in the jacket, that hangs weird in the shoulders.
Thanks for the feedback, tooshay. I assume it's the higher rise (and light colour) that puts you off. Apart from the rise, which I find on the high side too, I like the fit (the length, and the width of the legs, ending in 19cm), but I need to find a better one (saw a light APC NS last year, but I'm not sure it's still available.)
The jacket is a heavily altered OTR Corneliani; I understand what you mean, but am not ready to write it off yet; I like to wear stuff that I've had for years.
NOBD always has the best suede shoes. Fits make a decent case for bals with jeans.
Thanks, just got them last week. I was wondering if I could get away with that combination; not completely convinced myself (whereas I wouldn't think twice about wearing dark brown suede monks, or red-brown suede bals with perforated toecap with these light jeans).
