He's got two wooden pegs. They're bespoke pegs, probably. Hand crafted.

In my opinion put the shoe part in it's own little pic that one doesn't have to look at..

Well that sucks that you don't clean your shoes when they have mud on them. I do.

 

And since when does anyone roll up the trousers in fits that we're talking about? Those are slacks. Those don't get rolled up.

As SB once said, we all fail to heed our better angel at times. I need to start ignoring posts like that. 

 

But it did just occur to me that I may be able to roll up my unhemmed HY pants for the Friday fit instead of cuffing them. THAT is fashion forward. biggrin.gif

That's a very superb fit my man. 

I'll post a full length shot once I get my new RJ back from my tailor. cheers.gif

Probably a streetwear & denim thing.

I've never seen anyone here post pics with a roll.

re: shoes

 

If I could have my way (I suppose I could), I'd just wear park avenues in brown, black, and burgundy all the time. I suspect as I get older, this is what I'll end up doing.

 

I wonder if it's a cultural thing. Most Koreans can understand (well, can sort of understand) why I have so many ties/jackets/shirts. That I have 10+ pairs of shoes, or spend more than 300 dollars (for me, the sweet spot is between 300-500...I'm a low roller like that) on shoes, is a mystery to most of them. Also that I used shoe trees. For them, shoes are something to be used and disposed of.

 

Perhaps I'll change my mind once I return to the States.

 

I agree with Johnboy's pro jacket/shirt/tie sentiments, though I'm not so vociferously anti-shoe. Most of the shoes that get posted here are quite wonderful and unmuddy. I just don't get the same...satisfaction...in seeing an awesome pant, sock, and shoe combo that I do with jacket/shirt/tie/ps.

I feel the same. But I like a full fit more than anything. I don't need a closeup of the shoes, though it's not a negative. The full fit matters most. Your summer fit was legit until you mentioned the boots, which look quite winteresque to me. It would have been the difference of a few points to see them.

this. i am not advocating for close ups of the socks, pants, shoes. we have a dedicated thread for that.

what i am saying is, that a full fit is incomplete without seeing the shoes. i am even hesitant to really give full accolades to a fit without the shoes showing. the wrong shoes often really throw off a fit for me.

Auto-focus decided not to work for some reason on the full-length snap. Maybe the camera is becoming sentient, and deciding which fits it likes. Anyway, close-up only today...

I usually like it as well, but I think for CBD and general consistency it looks better if the socks are darker than the pants.  Otherwise it causes a break between the shoes and the pants.  It can draw too much attention to the socks.  

These socks are fine. I have spoken.

Today, I'm getting my wrinkle on. I'm also showing Clags a bit of that high button he likes so well.
