What's the accepted practice on the matching of leather browns in streetwear?

 

I have "brown" wolverine 1000 mile boots and frequently carry a "chestnut" saddleback leather briefcase. I want to get this "brandy" cordovan watch strap and this "cognac" leather belt. Am I going to look silly, or are these browns close enough for non-formal street use?

i usually just pretreat with liquid tide but i got this oxi clean maxforce stain remover that works pretty fucking well, remember on oil stains to wash in cold water (i wash everything on cold) as hot water will set the stain

Photo 2 is Bonobos Slim Navy

Photo 3 i think is the best fit, grey wool Banana Republic pants

As photo 2 is hard to see, the same pants in Tan are photos 4 and 5. Waist fits fine, but its the lower thigh where its tight.

Bonobos pants fit best of them all. They look killer. Might need to check some out...

BR ones look too tight in waist & make your shirt pucker. J.Crew pucker at the pockets and look wierd in the thighs. Not a good fit--but it could be the lighting/pic too.

These are not the same as "too slim". All are passable but the Bonobos are by far the best.

This. Also, do it as soon as you can. The longer that shit is on there the harder it is to get out.

It's sort of McGuyver-meets-Martha-Stewart, but those Tide or Shout pens you can carry in your bag work really f'ing well to help something not get all the way set before you can get the item properly washed.

I used a tide stick immediately, then ran it through a cold wash shortly after. Still there very faintly, been a few days at this point frown.gif Were brand new pants too. Fortunately hardly noticeable, but would like to get it out completely.

yep sooner the better, also my washer has a soak feature which extends the cycle to about 3 hours to really loosen any stain

soak it with stain remover, be careful not to leave too long read the directions as some may discolor (this oxi clean says i can leave it for a week though so it's a lot safer than others), agitate the stain but rubbing the fabric against itself and let it sit for awhile before throwing it in the wash so it can work

I don't think most people will notice (or care)....

Can someone point me in the direction of some trustworthy/respected UK proxies? Thanks.

Hey Guys- Do the Band of Outsiders Basic Oxfords shrink much in the wash? Even if I don't dry and wash in cold water? If I don't wash often will they break in? Also, is there a big differences between their sizes? 

 

I usually fit great into the BoO size 2 and I recently bought a blue basic oxford online, but when it came in I noticed it was much tighter than the previous size 2's I've tried on. I'm afraid that if this shrinks or I gain any more weight (doing a TON of lifting right now), I will basically bust out of this shirt. The reason I ask about the difference between sizes is because I'm considering exchanging this for a 3, but if 3's are much long in sleeve length and body then I'm  not entirely certain that moving to a size 3 would be the right choice (when I size up in Gitman Vintage, the shirt becomes entirely to long in the body and the arms). Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers. I tried them on a second time and they fit better, probably needed an initial stretch or something, also handed them in to get an half inch off the length will help also

I need some heavyweight Pocket T's for work in a warehouse. Something similar to the 7.5oz iron heart t's. I shouldn't think they need to be that beefy though.

Hey there all!

 

Would boots like these go well with dark (inky blue) jeans?

 

Thank you!

Also, mind you I'm not talking about these boots specifically, just boots like them (i.e. simple black boots).
