I quite like it. It's a very stylised (as opposed to more everyday) look, and works within those boundaries.

Thanks. They're suede chukkas from Ferragamo and have a really soft/padded top, where they hug the calf. Most chukkas don't have that, but it makes these really comfy to wear. I wear them a lot and am not looking forward to the day they finally give way.

Was this for my pics? If so, there's not enough inseam to properly turn those jeans up. I can see that looking good in theory though, yeah.

Thanks! You're right it was a stylised look, as I was playing with my band on stage minutes after. Outside. Minus 6 degrees Celsius. Stiff fingers!

And something a little trimmer:

If you had worn the chukkas in the first picture it would have been the fuzziest fit ever. Perhaps too much of a good thing. smile.gif I like your second fit much better.

The first fit reminded me of Minder. Given the nostalgia it evoked, that is a compliment, I can assure you. Can you sing the feem toon?

Yeah, that's exactly why I wore regular calf leather with it instead. Needed something shiny instead of more fuzzy stuff. I have worn that jacket at the same time as the suede chukkas and usually regretted it for precisely that reason.

I used to watch Minder pretty regularly; I reckon I could do a passable rendition of the theme! :D

 

Arthur Daley had pretty natty outfits, especially that light brown chesterfield overcoat paired with dark brown narrow brim trilby. ;)

Thanks Larry. It was made for me by Ede & Ravenscroft, using a Holland & Sherry cloth from their Sherry Tweed II book. I can't remember the exact weight, but I think it was somewhere around 14oz, give or take. In the UK, it's good from about late September/early October through to about late April/early May. If our current freezing cold weather continues, maybe it will never be put away... ;)

Oh, right; I'm become too Americanised from reading this board, assuming the word cuffs meant turn-ups. :)

 

I've settled on this jacket sleeve length as being what I like. Shorter ones show more cuff when standing still, but I don't like how much they reveal when you bend your arms. On this jacket, they're about the same length as the shirt sleeves, showing just the barest sliver of shirt cuff if I was to stand perfectly properly, facing the camera. This is how I've been getting all my new stuff over the past 2-3 years. Some of my older stuff tends to show a phase where I got a quarter inch or even more showing instead, but I'm not fond of that anymore. Not very SF of me, I know, but there you go.

This is the sort of independent thinking which is ruining this forvm.

While the calendar says "Spring", the temperature says "wool". This sweater (Black Sheep LTD from the UK) is the most woolly thing I've ever seen. It has a natural colored wool and is very roomy. Trousers are charcoal tweed by Epaulet.

if you were looking for a pair of navy suede casual shoes, which would you go for? the wingtip or the bucks?
both have the same brick sole
post #12253 of 15897
^I prefer the Wingtip.
post #12254 of 15897
initially i did as well (prefer the wingtip)
but i have several other wingtips .. so i was thinking bucks..
and then i just saw these

navy suede longwing bucks from land's end
i prefer the longwing to the wingtip + these are much cheaper
may have to grab them instead
post #12255 of 15897
^^ I prefer the buck. But, I'll admit I'm biased and like very few wingtips.

On edit: I was posting my response as you posted the longwing.

All things being equal, I'd probably go with the longwing. Since I already have a casual longwing (and am not a fan of wingtips), I'd personally still go with the buck.

I've actually got my eyes open for a pair of plain toe bluchers (not bucks) in navy suede.
