Alex- Nice basic fit that I've mimicked quite often.

Elisix- You wear black sneakers too often and indiscriminantly. Blue/brown/black is not a good color combo.
post #99603 of 117668
Fair enough.

On the black, very little of what I own is black.

Pictures are just so dark.

Everything that seems black is likely Navy.

If those are navy, then well done. Sorry, they definitely look black in the fit pic.

Well I've got some black GAT's, Grenson longwings and Loake Aldwych's. No other black shoes. It's actually funny that this has some up as I've been thinking about black shoes today.

I hear the comments lately about having too many sneakers, and faced with a situation like a Friday night wearing a t, blazer and black denim, I am not sure what shoes would be ideal.

Do I essentially just want a black calf blucher or derby?

wearing a tee with a blazer and denim suggests casual to me, so sneakers a la cp or vans would work. derbies and bluchers are both dressier...only works semi-dressed up fits, imo.

I don't know man. Eventually I think you are going to see the light about your chino/denim wardrobe. For whatever reason, I just don't think it's a good look for your body type. It's something about how rigid you are. The clothes you're wearing seem to emphasize that. Do you have any trousers? I just think for you wearing a blazer on a Friday night would look better with trousers.

Now that I think about it...

You should completely do a 180. No more chinos, denim, sneakers. Try dressing up every day. You obviously like a clean, buttoned up look. Go with it. I think it would be an awesome look for you. In fact I think it would be shocking how slick you could look.

Your not the first to suggest that re; trousers. 

 

Before coming here, I basically only ever saw trousers as being part of a suit. How wrong I was. 

 

When I mentioned denim above, with a blazer and T, I was referring to black slim denim OR trousers. 

 

Essentially replicating something like this with better footwear. http://tres-bien.com/brand/barena/torceo-melo-jacket-navy

 

And this is also in line with what I have in mind. Note the black bluchers. http://tres-bien.com/brand/missoni/zigzag-blazer-purple

 

The highest thumbs I ever recieved I believed was when I posted this fit. It was also at the time I got my frames.

 

The t-shirt is very cheap and I think looks it, but I very much like the aesthetic for a night out.

Awesome shirt!

Elisix- That fit is okay, but not near slick enough. It still has that "not sure exactly what I'm doing" vibe. You need a sleek, untucked buttoned shirt with a point collar, trousers that drape, not bunch, and a longer jacket. Think David Duchovny's character in Californication. Just try it bro.
post #99612 of 117668
Thanks Caveat.

Would you mind showing me an example of what you mean and specifically, trousers that drape?

Everything I see Hank Moody wearing is a straight leg denim and a t or a dark button down combo.

I get that you are referring to his 'I don't give a fuck' attitude more so than his clothing though biggrin.gif
post #99613 of 117668
Not these colors, but just something like this. I don't know man. Just brainstorming. Maybe I'm totally wrong.


On the trousers, I just mean look for something not so slim that clings to your leg like the ones in that fit of yours.

Here you go. On the right:
post #99614 of 117668
I see where your going and I think it's essentially what I'm getting at.

I know that unstructured jackets suit me better, and keeping hem casual with patch pockets and details like that will help.
post #99615 of 117668
Dunno of elisix is after sleek, though. Are you? You seem to be aiming at something more casual and playful, which I think you've been doing well lately
