How about, because they are fucking comfy? How about, because they work with the fit? No other reason is needed....

Because this is STYLE forum not Comfy Forum. Otherwise there'd be lots of pictures of us in well fitting plush onesies. Footies optional.

I am assuming the shirt is light blue and not white, correct? If so I like it and don't think it's too matchy. It could perhaps use some patterns to give the look a little more life, perhaps a candy striped shirt would work here? Also, I can only second Stitches comment that the fit would look much better with the jacket buttoned.

Really nice jacket NYI, my only qualm here is that I find the colour of the shoes a bit jarring with the jacket, would have preferred a darker shoe to better tie it together with the jacket - but this is only nitpicking.

I struggle with making medallion ties like this one work. I do own a few myself and very rarely find that I can work them in to a fit. I think they work best with three-piece suits where only a relatively small part of the ties show over the waistcoat, otherwise I find that they can be almost overwhelming.

There really never is a reason to wear bit loafers nest.gif

I have come to appreciate AAS individual style and I know this has been beaten to death in this thread, but I find that the shoes are constantly the weak part of most his fits. But to each his own, I guess....

What is this Comfy Forum you speak of and where may I find it?

Yeah, obvs, but as long as a look is relatively coherent and looks good, who gives a fuck apart from Star Wars nerds? I am far more concerned with people posting incoherent/ugly looks--which happens on a daily basis--than 'oh no, he wore this type of sock at this occasion--fail'. Only Star Wars nerd can take criticism and rules so far past where they need to be. Yes, we get it, you read up about the history of clothes; you know this was worn then and why. Doesn't mean that affects in any way the aesthetics of a good look. If you don't want to wear loafers when it's rainy/in the dark/at a party/to a funeral/in space/whatever then fine, but don't always act surprised when someone else does, and ASK them why they are wearing them (OMFG, LOL). You are just a Star Wars nerd; get over it.

 

Edit: I just read your next post (ROFL). You say there is no reason to wear bit loafers. LOL, there is no reason to wear a tie. There is no reason to wear clothes than to stay warm and/or dry. ALL of the other 'reasons' have been made up by people, so please don't say stupid things like this. His shoes were a good colour, a nice shape, reasonably good leather, etc. I don't see how anyone could mark him down for those shoes bar personal distaste for loafers (which is what this is).

Why Star Wars nerd in particular? Seems a bit specific. Are you secretly a trekky is that why?

Oh come on, this is StyleForum - the whole f***ng point of the forum is to nitpick and comment on petty details. It's only clothes after all....

He, obviously, likes the collegiate/preppy look, and he's pulled that look off well. The end.

Another gray suit today. With vintage tie and PS this time.
