Guys - thanks for all the thumbs on the park picture. I wish I could read all the comments - not sure how to do that, I only see the last 10 or so in the pop window...
Anyhow - some people asked me for details: I'm wearing the FW11 Schneider merino coat over a burgundy stark over a Taylor Stitch shirt. Jeans are KMW Rocker, and the unseen shoes are gats. My boy is wearing a J Crew peacoat - oversized steeze - and burnt orange cords. He's a bit of a peacock. Picture was taken at the Parc de Bruxelles, so typical french gardens with a lot of gravel and not a lot of grass... Didn't see many Ann D and Schneider looks in Brussels...
I think the Schneider picture and close-up is particularly interesting in showing the two types of cloths used in that coat. Most pictures don't really show that there's two different shades of navy used for the various panels. That's one of the reasons I love that coat (the other color ways don't have these nuances)
Regarding sneaker tucks, here is 100% of my thinking on the matter: Man, these are some *bad-ass fucking shoes*. If I don't stuff my hem down there, people might miss out on these *bad-ass fucking shoes*!
I am getting my jeans slimmed, based on you guys' advice. If there is like a standard hem width that pairs well with high tops (even 7.25" looks sloppy) please let me know.
I get that but rather than people going "those are some bad-ass fucking shoes", they're going "that dude looks kinda weird with his pants tucked into his shoes".
I wouldn't get the pants slimmed, they're nice pants, I'd just wear them with different footwear and get some really stacky jeans if you want to tuck your Lavinz. I don't think it's a mathematical hem width equation you just have to get the right cut. I mostly tuck my Attachment J shapes.
the jacket is a Margiela moto, very dark brown. I got it about 3 yrs ago and forget that i have it sometimes, nice jacket.
wite pants are APS PS
boots are Paul Smith.
scarf is Jil Sander from the marbled collection
