this is SF. a forum filled with thousands and thousands of posts and threads debating for days/weeks/months most subjects on which it is pretty unnecessary to have a strong opinion on.
All of my MTM coats and trousers come with the fabric label by default. Never gave it much thought, really. I wouldn't call it a "stylistic" choice, in any case.
The shoes are Generic Surplus wingtip sneakers. They're waterproof. I thought it was going to rain that day, I was going on vacation and wanted to pack as sensibly as possible. I actually had a rain jacket on earlier in the day, but changed when I saw that it wasn't going to rain. I'm not crazy about wearing them with a tie, but I don't want to ruin my good shoes.
I've always been curious about footwear when it rains. Waterproof shoes? Waterproof spray on leather/suede? Or galoshes? What do you guys do?
