Hey all, This thread is pretty self-explanatory. Just choose one article of clothing for each category (shirts, pants, jeans, suits, etc) and maybe give a few words as to why it is your favorite. Feel free to include pictures if Steve B. thinks it's acceptable. Dress Shirt: G. Armani Borgonuovo. Really dark navy blue, the fabric is so great, its very thin and the way it is woven creates raised 'stripes' of the same color as the shirt. 'Casual' Dress Shirt: Kenneth Cole NY (gift from girlfriend), white with thin black and purple triple-stripes. Fits well and looks nice untucked. Casual Shirt: Longsleeve silvery-gray crewneck from H&M. It's thin and the reason its so unique is that it is a wool/nylon/acrylic blend, yet it doesn't look like it would be at all. Sweater: Charcoal Merino Wool Versace Classic sweater, or a Joseph Abboud half-zip sweater made out of Wool/Viscose. Black and gray but has a very cool horizontal stripe effect. Jeans: Paper Denim & Cloth bootcut. Great fit and look. Goes with many shirts. All the good things you heard about PDC are true. Jeans (novelty): Slim-fit low rise Levis Premium in gray. Very unique, I'm wearing them right now. Casual Pants: Kenneth Cole NY pants in heather gray. Thin material and very soft, very slight boot-cut. Dress Pants: Flat-Front theory in Charcoal gray. Belt: Simple supple brown leather belt (wide) with nice silver buckle. Stitch detail on end of belt and on the loop that extra belt goes through. Looks like a million bucks. $3.74 at Target. It's my favorite belt hands down. Shoes: Kenneth Cole NY Black Monk Straps. I know KC's get a bad rep on this forum, but I've had these for a few years now and they have held up well. Wearing well, soles not separating (as I've heard KC's tend to do), and comfortable. Go well with jeans or dress pants. These are my 'beaters' and one of the reasons I like them so much is that I can wear them to class and trudge through snow, slush, and salt without worrying about them getting ruined. T-Shirt: Very soft, slim-fit T from Express. It's red, has a cool orange circular graphic on it and says "1981"...kind of that faux-vintage look. Coat: 3/4 Length wool/cashmere blend coat. Black, has a flap covering the buttons in front. Or, for more casual attire, a Diesel brown shearling coat, almost 3/4 length. Its unique because it is 'double breasted' and zips rather than buttons. Jacket: Vintage tan LaCoste spring jacket that my dad gave me. Its authentic - from the 80's. Watch: My Wenger. It's quartz but does the job. Swiss-made, SS case with rotating diver's bezel, simple gold bars for numbers, date window, and dark cream face. I pimped it out with an after-market croc strap.
