Yes, or off-white chino's.

I'm sorry, I'm just not digging this. I think normally your style is great and it suits you when you are in your formal gear. But I think that your casual wear is not so great, what throws this off the size and length of the jacket, it seems too big and drapey and maybe even formal for this fit. I understand that you may not be a massive fan of slim fitted clothes, but I think they would suit your frame and work better for your slightly more casual wear.

Cheers Nick

He's right Holdfast. I'm not such a fan of your looser fitting suits but you make them work for you. When you have the same larger-fitting stuff for casual wear, especially as a slim fella, it puts you dangerously into Oldog territory and as I think he is one of the worst casual dressers on this board, I do not mean that as a compliment!

Sorry I'm crooked. The missus appears to have camera induced vertigo.

Cheers!

Kaplan is right. It's Fjällräven, a Swedish classic (kind of the Swedish equivalent of Barbour).

And I'm not really an intern.  I thought I was going to be an intern but I'm basically part file clerk and part paralegal for my department.  I work 35 hour weeks and get paid.  So its a little better deal then being a tradition intern.

Wait, so you are not allowed to wear a jacket but have to wear a tie? That's odd. If that's the case, at least get some thinner ties and ditch the tie bar. It looks especially out of place with no jacket and sleeves rolled up (which you may want to reconsider as well).

Their policies could not have been that jackets were prohibited in the office 100 years ago. That's got to be a recent policy put into place when your firm starting representing tech firms or something.

It's a perennial point about my outfits, and on one theoretical level I somewhat agree; I probably would look objectively better in casual looks in slimmer stuff. On the another level, though, I really don't want to have two wardrobes, one for casual and one for formal. Mainly because my life doesn't bifurcate into casual vs formal. I can, and do, wear more or less the same things to almost anything I do whether work-related or playtime and it fits in fine. Secondly, I'm comfortable in longer/looser cuts, so the motivation to attempt any change is greatly diminished. Odd as it may seem, I actually like the effect, but I accept I'm an outlier with that opinion.

 

So my selective deafness to that side will likely continue, though of course on a wider level it's still good for the board to see the feedback, as it helps out the broad base of readers. These days, I must admit my personal motives for posting are more about colour/pattern feedback (something I have changed a lot since first posting on SF) and to get inspiration from others in that area.

 

 

 

Anyway, today was also more suited to this thread than the main one:

So I got my pair of rivet chinos today, other than the obvious hemming, thoughts?
FWIW i got the size 34, I bought a pair of rudy trousers in 33 and they were too tight in the seat so I decided to go up since these are sized similar to the walt.

They are seriously fucking blue. Fit looks good though. Personally id do a thicker belt, but that's personal preference and my answer to everything

I think the Rudy's are the big butt cut, but a little birdie told me the new style rivets are much easier to alter so sizing up shouldn't pose any issues. A few people said the new sizes run smaller than the old ones, as well. Looking forward to getting my olive half chinos this week smile.gif

Citan - I know I may sound like a broken record because so many MCers have the same problem, but you're wearing your pants too high. Pull those guys down - it looks pretty dorky

Hmm, I was wearing them on my hips, I'll try them on later and see

If your belt falls closer to your elbow than your wrist bone, you're wearing your casual pants way too high. If it looks like your body proportions are 1/3 chest, 2/3 legs, you're wearing your casual pants too high. I know that MCers are enamored with "classic" carygrantesque style of wearing dress pants ultra high, but that should not happen in casual dress (or god forbid with jeans!) unless you're going for a very specific heritage look.

Look at Sander above for a good example of where pants should sit, top/bottom proportions that don't look odd, hands that fall naturally where the pants pockets are.
