The high tops are throwing everything off, thisisblex. Both outfits would be vastly improved if you swapped those out for some slim-ish boots. Abandoning the high tops might also improve the look of those jeans, which look oddly proportioned. (kind of baggy in the thighs but then really slim below the knee).

so basically shirt/jacket or button down + jean combo would look fine, minus moonboots? 

 

someone buy my lanvins so i can get some side zip boots plzkthx

yeah the jeans are weird, they are tapered work wear, but stack too much due to high tops. when i wear mids they roll down and i can fold up half an inch and they look normal.

I know you're still finding your way and I'm biased against the baller sneaker movement, but I think you're going to ruin a lot of potentially good ensembles if you keep trying to strong-arm those Lanvins into the mix. But again, Lanvins are near the top of the list of "SW&D favorites I don't see the appeal of," so your mileage may vary in the eyes of others.

thats definitely the way i feel at the moment, and i'm not sure i'm willing to justify finding an ensemble to suit the lanvins. unfortunately i'm not as much of a fan of the lows. if i can find the mids on sale i might bite, otherwise I might need to start looking at a nice pair of boots.

huge fan of these - http://www.neimanmarcus.com/p/Lanvin-Cap-Toe-Boot-Shoes/prod147680212/ but they're too close to brogue territory. any suggestions that might be a bit more subtle, yet retaining quality/sleekness?

Gonna also chime on the Lanvin hate, those things look really out of place and I can imagine few fits which will render them attractive. I think the light color/size make them look like aforementioned moonboots

thanks reedo, def respect yours and apk's opinions after looking at your progress.. anything you might suggest as far as casual/upscale footwear goes? I'm a musician* that works from home so no need for anything too formal. 

 

*musician looking for swagger past vans/chucks.. i met dave grohl at my local bar the other day and cringed at his beat up vans mids.

the biggest problem of the "baller sneaker movement" is the one-track mind about how they should be worn. I've been shaking my head for a couple of years at the constant flow of comments that high tops HAVE to be worn tucked and stacked... Well, no. People have been wearing high tops under their hem from well before those making these statements were born. The fact that you're not showing every millimeter of your baller sneakers' awesomeness to the world at all times is not a sin - sometimes it just looks better. So they look like baller low tops now, oh noes... who gives a f really?

lighter shoes would work better. grey vintage cp achilles lows imo (or in that vein). black sneakers under black shorts just doesn't work in general, imo - need to bust up the black with some contrast - if the shoes had white in em and your shirt was white or something then it could work...

I quite like it. I think i'd prefer it if the shoes were different, maybe black not brown.
Just in case you didn't know, one of the most unappreciated threads on this forum has a few original skinheads who discuss some aspects of that style.


That thread is great, brilliant link bruv! Yeah I love the old skinhead / mod look, british through and through.

Yeah I go for the skinhead / mod look a lot.

 

That thread is amazing also, the old school photographs posted are very interesting.
