Looking at flannel pants in a lighter 9.5 oz for the temperate climate I am in

Are flannels noticeably more casual than worsted wool pants. Do they pair better with dress boots and double soled shoes rather than closed laced oxfords as an example?

Despite the light weight would these still be clearly fall/winter pants only?

Anyone have issues with how they walk (pronation or reversepronation) and how does that affect your shoe purchases? I walk on the outside of my sole and coupled with a walking disability means that the soles of my shoes wear out in no time. For example, my MMM Gats I've owned for about five month and only used them about twice a week, and they're now reaching a point where they won't be wearable in a couple months.

 

Are there any solution besides orthopedic shoes? For those with this issue or any walking disability, how do you handle shoe purchases?

 

I'm thinking I'm no longer going to purchase any expensive shoes as they'll just wear down in no time with my walking + disability.

Wouldnt getting a shoe with a footbed that molds to the bottom of your foot fix some of that?

I overpronate, so I have the opposite problem, and insoles work for me. I know they make insoles for supination. Can't speak to how effective they are.

 

I would go see an orthopedist/podiatrist if you don't already, for your own health if not just the health of your shoes. They will probably try to sell you on custom orthotics (which you may need), but they should still give you a better understanding of what's going on with your feet.

Thoughts on leather jacket fit?

 

Too short?

No, it looks too short because your tshirt is too short.  The tee should stick out an inch or so under it.

I'm 30 and I need a new pair of sneakers/casual shoes. Can anyone talk me out of buying a pair of classic Vans to replace the rotten Etnies I've been wearing the past few years? 

 

Budget: $80 or less.

They're $5 more than your budget and they look quite a bit better than Vans IMO. You can get it from http://www.styleforum.net/u/90476/zeemon or hunt for it on classifieds and eBay for less.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a slim-fitting button-up knit with a shawl collar? I'd like it to be substantial (winter weight), and to have an interesting colour/texture. A tone that brightens up a dark palette is preferred.




I'm really liking the SNS Herning Memento Cardi (above) : I have a few other SNS knits and I love their heaviness and durability. I'm not sure I want to jump on it for full price, though. Any other alternatives?

Nonnative sizing?

1 = small
2 = medium
3 = large

So if I'm typically a M, should I go with 2 or 3?

Get a solid rotation (at least 7 pairs) and maybe something a little better built than MMM GATs

I saw this image start floating around in the past few months and am having trouble determining who makes the gent's quilted green coat. Does anyone on here have any ideas? It looks similar to some Barbour jackets I've seen but has details more akin to Cucinelli. Very stumped and would really love to figure out where this can be obtained. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out!
