I, actually, think that works with trainers. It's the too-much-break I dislike.

Interestingly this looks like it was taken directly from TheStyleBlogger's last post. Normally that would be a bad thing, but I actually really like the look. I think the amount of break and the white trainers actually work in context; young guy in a super casual suit. Also props for having your NATO match your beer, most amateurs would have matched the belt.

changing the wheels is an easy task, when the rest is nailed.

A+ casual outfit Crat, very well played!

Thanks for the input guys. The super casual suit with sneakers look was actually inspired by the j.crew catalog, not styleblogger (god forbid). This was shot Saturday afternoon, and the night included a bike ride to dinner, then to a second location for drinks, then home at the end of the night, and I was happy with the SeaVees' performance.

I do agree that there's too much break, and I think this is because the shoes have no heels. I had them tailored for no break with a pair of Alden longwings, and I'm sinking into the spongy soles.

Crat, sweet fades on the Sugarcanes!

firstly, im sure i agree to that entirely, but more importantly, it was 90 degrees outside, and i was outside, needed a cooler ensemble. i might have died with another layer on me.

By the way nice shoes, deets please.

thanks, shoes are zegna couture. one of my fave shoes i have. very comfy, very versatile. al least imo.

the pants look very casual (and the cuff is very sloppy), but you're wearing very formal shined dress shoes? and the shirt is just kind of ug.

i still dont see why you think these pants are so casual. they really dont seem to be irl, imo. along with that, i think the dress shoes work with the pants.

the cuff is sloppy. i havent hemmed it yet, so that is about 4 folds to get it to proper length.

as to the shirt, i like it. YMMV.

1. post count and being well dressed rarely have anything to with each other.

2. everyone misses sometimes.

3. i think the outfit looked much better irl, where you can see the true colors and textures of the individual pieces.

2. If you're going to wear a shirt casually, it needs to have casual details. Button-down collar, beefy oxford or flannel fabric, often a chest pocket or two etc etc. I'm sure you know this already, why aren't you implementing?
3. Ultra sleek loafers do not work with casual pants. I think we've said that before...they also don't work for your body type TBH.
4. Those pants actually fit better than most others I've seen on you. They might work with those tan bucks you have, and perhaps a navy gingham check casual shirt.

1. that was a mistake, they should have had another roll or two. might have fallen doen over the day, but yeah, looks bad.

2. as i posted in the recent purchases thread, i have come to that conclusion more or less. why i have nit implemented, i really dont have all that many shirts like that yet. frown.gif

3. see above reply to teger. as to body type, probably true, but i like these shoes, and ill continue to wear them. please not to hate me.

4. thanks, i really do like the fit on these, though i am not used to such a narrow tapered leg. i was actually thinking about exactly that combo. i was afraid it may be too much blue, and i thought the slim look of the pant may not jive with the round larger look of the shoes. ill try that combo out out soon. let me know if you think it works any better.

thanks for taking the time to organize your feedback so well.

But I've seen it working before...

let's analyse this in comparison to stitches fit:

- belt is same colour as shoes, or at least lighter in colour.
- his cuffs as well as his shirt collar is not sloppy.
- he is ryan gosling.
- next to the person left of gosling, everybody looks dapper.


1. my belt and shoes are the same color. maybe the pic doesnt show that

2. truth

3. no fair

4. laugh.gif

the one thing i do not love about this shirt, is that it does not have slits for collar stays. i have no idea why. its RLPL, anyone find that with their shirts? i think maybe they wanted to give it a more casual feel. who knows.

@ crat - really liked your last 2 posts here. cheers.gif

stitches the shirt is just ugly. it can't be saved. the pants are casual because they have no crease, the fabric is casual and the cut is casual (lower rise). and those pants aren't the proper length, they're too long.

you would also benefit from dressing less.. 'sloppy'. a sharp crease will make your legs seem straighter and balance out your top half better, same with more straight leg pants. a properly ironed collar will look better too.

because i'm lazy (and you seem to like j crew), these are two ways to do what you're trying to do better:


http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shirts/oxfordshirts/PRDOVR~60763/60763.jsp in light blue, untucked

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/pants/brokeninchinos/PRDOVR~19488/19488.jsp in navy



http://www.jcrew.com/browse/popup_single_product_detail.jsp?jproduct=16561&imgSrc=http://s7.jcrew.com/is/image/jcrew/16561_GY6480_m?$pdp_fs418$&isFeatureColor=true in navy

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shirts/ludlowdressshirts/PRDOVR~99439/99439.jsp tucked in

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/AldenForJCrew/PRDOVR~20853/20853.jsp or some sort of brown leather blucher.


i know it's fun to mix worlds and stuff, but you need to get the basics down first.

I am aware of this, but I try to have some respect for people who've been around here longer than me - unless they are just rude, and you certainly aren't. If you were new, I would have said something like the cliché, 'post less and lurk more', but that would clearly be rather too late in your case!

I like that a lot Igor!
Others might disagree because you go flap pockets without a tie, but I think the suit fits you very well and you look clean and crisp.
Maybe add a white PS to finish the look?
