@alex, pants seem like they are tight at the seat (idk if thats the right term, crotch zone), might just be from hands in pocket?
Yes, it's the hand, they are a pair of Wood Wood Eland, pretty large in that area.

You are absolutely right, I usually dislike light shoes with light pants, but today I was needing the comfy clarks to walk a lot.
However I think that with these soft colours they can work. Edited by alexSF - 1/24/13 at 2:40pm
Iv been messing around with my day to day fits recently. I have this idea of what i like but just cant seam to pull it all together. As a reference i like a lot of what is sold on Unionmade but at those prices it would take me years to pull off a new wardrobe I mean if I had endless pockets im sure it would be easier. One of the reasons I like unionmade is because it easy to pull fits from there. Other sites are alk over the place and it gets me confused. Especially since what i recently like is way different than looks that come easy for me. What are some good online stores that would be reasonable in price and two help stear me away from my style comfort zone
U should know at one time in my life looking good was wearing new age guido looks. U know the guy with diesel jeans ,button down shirt and gucci shoes. Not sure if this is where this kinda question belongs??
Iron heart vest
You need to tuck your shirt in. Also, a boxy vest isn't really working with skinny jeans. I like the vest and shirt, as it happens, but would go for a looser, more 1920s/30s cut jean - RRL, Mister Freedom, etc.
I appreciate that. I'm a work in progress. many years of being surrounded by bad dressed people who thought I was best dressed just poisoned my perception of what looked good
Vest is ok, at least you're wearing it with a b/u shirt, but I fear vest will look big once the shirt is tucked (they should be fitted but you dont want to look like a sausage). Problem is you need to tuck the shirt and if it billows around the waist go pay 15 bux or whatever and get it taken in on the sides or darted so it'll look appropriate. Jeans are not great but the cut is decent. If you're going for that aesthetic get some shawl collar cardigans and such, look into more affordable stuff like our legacy. There is an affordable swag thread that I'm sure can point you in the direction you seek. I'd recommend some basic shirts like oxfords that are always good to wear with a multitude of stuff and look good (ie uniqlo), baracutta jackets perhaps, wool car coats or some variant of a pea coat as well for outerwear.
