Similar yes I suppose. However I am trying to go for a cleaner, more fitted look when I do dress business casual.Today.CalibreJ.CrewIndustrieMr HareCouple of points having come home and taken the shots just now.1. Should have been wearing brown shoes (not sneakers and no Vibram sole )2. As I don't have brown suede shoes, I should have worn a darker shoe at least.3. Shirt sleeves still need taking up.4. I think I should be wearing proper trousers, not slim chinos with a fit like this.post #86973 of 1176682/18/13 at 3:35amQuote:
That's why his works and yours usually don't. You're trying to wear your casual clothes like you would wear a suit. You need to adjust to the more relaxed conventions of casual dress. Lots of people in the MC forum struggle with this and that's why you look like them. Just having a loose break in your pants and wearing beat up dress shoes (see stiker's) will relax the whole fit and make you look a lot more comfortable.Quote:

Why post a fit just to say you should have worn different shoes, pants and shirt?post #86974 of 1176682/18/13 at 3:40ampost #86975 of 1176682/18/13 at 3:55ampost #86976 of 1176682/18/13 at 3:59ampost #86977 of 1176682/18/13 at 4:24ampost #86978 of 1176682/18/13 at 4:41ampost #86979 of 1176682/18/13 at 4:47am
That's actually something i've also thought and have begun recently reading the significant amount of information available in that thread.
I think initially I am looking to replace my slim chino's with some straighter leg trousers which should help with the business casual looks for work.
Weekend/casual day's I need to loosen up a little. I can see how sometimes my fits can come across quite stiff.post #86980 of 1176682/18/13 at 4:48amQuote:
Well, my Ann's have a high shaft and don't feel very summery to me.
I like the cordovan (?) there, the sheen makes the whole fit IMOpost #86981 of 1176682/18/13 at 7:39ampost #86982 of 1176682/18/13 at 7:49amQuote:
That's stupid just writing off a whole genre of shirting, some checkered shirts look great, but they're just quite boring and they're the ONLY shirts he wears, which is the problem, he needs to get something different and more interesting in his wardrobe because all his pieces just look... average.post #86983 of 1176682/18/13 at 7:54ampost #86984 of 1176682/18/13 at 8:16ampost #86985 of 1176682/18/13 at 9:09amQuote:Originally Posted by slstr

lol sorry for upsetting you once again
I have no doubt there are nice ones, but meant that they're in general not very clean, and as you said often boring
