That would be ideal, yes.

It's a relic of a long-dead dream to sing opera from my college days, but I've used it as a handle on a couple of forums for awhile and didn't have anything better in mind.  My more mundane real-life job is teaching history at a university.  The healthy percentage of academics posting to this thread led me to start dressing better and--now that I have a "camera" in the form of a phone--to join in.

I also dislike the shoes (and I like a healthy amount of SWD stuff, but I've never gotten behind such shoes), but I like the rest of the fit. SWD accepts Stitchy's MC fits (after a while). I'd like to think at some point the reverse will be true.

 

I like the x-post, but we're also allowed to critique it. Constructive criticism is more helpful than snark, but plenty of CM fits get snark as well. I used to wear a lot of street wear when I was younger, so I appreciate the other side of the forum.

 

Having said that, I wouldn't have worn those white shoes back then. Either the last should be a little sleeker, or they shouldn't be white. In this form they remind me of those Birkenstock clogs before they became fashionable. They were frequently seen on nurses or people who had given up on caring about their dress altogether. I do like the rest of stitchy's outfit though!

 

I should probably add a disclaimer that my tastes have changed considerably since then and that I'm out of touch with current street wear scene. For all I know those shoes might be from the current hype brand, which I suppose would make them a little more acceptable.

Thanks for the comments, everyone. I guess I was going for a soft, low contrast look, but perhaps that is not something to aim for. I imagine this would have been better received with a navy blazer/better square. Next time!

I like this.  It’s the sort of light top/dark bottom combination that in other contexts might earn you a late night visit from the chaps of the Style Forum Re-education Team, but works very nicely here in this country/sporting context.

 

Seeing this is also useful to me, since serendipitously I just got back from the tailor my Howard Yount blue Donegal tweed trousers which are a very similar shade of blue.  I was thinking about pairing them with my grey herringbone SC, and this makes me think that that indeed might work.

 

Cheers,

It's good that you tried though. Always going for the navy blazer is a very safe bet, but you shouldn't shy away from trying something new once in a while. I'm sure the low contrast look can be great when pulled off correctly.

Ya'll cant touch my Margiella. I feel like @Cantabrigian would LOVE them.

One thing I didn't like about SW&D was their blind loyalty to brands. To me it either looks good or not. I don't care if it's Skechers or MMM.

I was thinking they were MMM. I think I've seen those white shoes on a slightly sleeker last that I quite liked. Maybe they were from the H&M collab?

 

Found them: (Click to show)

 

 

 

I like them much better in the all white fit tbh.

I feel that with "fashionable" items like this the context and who's wearing them become important. It may look good on one person and ridiculous on another.

MMM did a run with H&M, thats probs them.

Mine are gray tho, light gray, but gray. In any case, anyone is welcome to hate them, and they are fairly jarring with dark pants, but I wont stop loving them.

Also, I think SWD is quite similar to MC when it comes to brand loyalty. They also do not particularly like things just because of the brand, they have to actually like the look of the item as well.

Here's me today; conservative on top with a bit of pattern in the trousers: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The tie is a brown wool BB challis with red dots. Bottom half (Click to show)

Sharp look. Good details.

Have you ever worn them with gray jeans?

Was the H&M collaboration any good?

At least half of the people here don't even bother posting brands. In SW&D almost everyone does.
