Wearing them for a few days to see how long they can be shortened. But I'm liking the linen a little baggier for a few reasons.

sounds like a plan!

i saw a guy in a bow tie today. it actually made the rest of his otherwise mediocre ensemble look very nice. he was at least 50.

New acquisitions. The belt is a cheapo. Working on getting new ones.

 

Looking good! Is your belt worn too loosely? could just be angle of the shot.

I remember posting a pic of them in the RRL thread and no one seemed interested so I thought it was just me. Having said that, the RRL thread should be one of my favourite threads here but sometimes it's just full of absolute nonsense unfortunately.

Yeah, these are my absolute favorite chinos ATM. The fit is not slim at all, but somewhere between Officer and Regulation so I definitely needed to size down. You're right about the RRL thread these days. Seems like there's too much time spent trolling resellers, authenticity checks for eBay items and questions about sales timing.

Stitches, did you try the Officer chino or were yours the Regulation? I could fit my whole torso into the leg of a pair of Regulations.

Another SW&D/Instagram cross post. RRL slims and RRL Murdock boot:

same issues again id say. shirt and pants are too casual for the blazer. also blazer looks a little big. if you want to do this, you need a much more unstructured blazer. look at LBM 1911 and boglioli.

How old is "older" in this context?

Having lurked on this thread for about two years, I have learned much.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed to my education.  What I find touching about this thread is the general sense of comradery, even within the context of generally good natured ribbing.  I grew up in an culture in which one could frequently refer to someone's ethnicity or sexual preference without offense. This could be done because there was actually very little racism or homophobia.  Having then moved to a totally different culture, I learned how easy it is to say something hurtful without intending to do so.  In such situations I have found it is best to sincerely ask how one offended the other person, understand their point of view, and then humbly apologize.  Anything less than that, given the emotional volume, always seemed to be less than genuine. A half-hearted apology makes matters worse.  A sincere almost always is an opportunity to make the relationship and community stronger than what it was before.  I will now go back to lurking.

I think it might be. I'm used to pants being a little loose and the belt gathering the fabric. These fit perfect without the belt. So I guess, yeah, it just sits there. It's a piece of crap anyways and I need a real belt. Some actual suede belts. 

 

Great fit - kick-ass loafers.
