Pretty sure those are Tigers or something very similiar.
I found those were very popular amongst trust fund kids in Germany, kind off the German equivalent to the Long/Rhode Island boat shoes, did any of my fellow Europeans observe something similiar?

Horses for courses but I will never understand the SF love for these huge lapels, and disdain for narrower ones.

I'm old enough to have lived through the seventies and have no wish to revisit the decade that style forgot!biggrin.gif

Casual day today. I absolutely love this jacket but I wish I had sized down. Oh well smile.gif. Grey suede chukkas on the bottom.

Thank You! Ironically, this is all older stuff. My winter fall wardrobe is so much nicer than my summer one frown.gif

worth quoting, just so that people see how it's supposed to be done...

Fit applies not to actual measurements but the net effect of the look. You can have bell bottoms that "fit" right? But because of the flare of the leg, the overall aesthetic is affected. Note that a "1 inch" difference across a hem opening is actually 2" (you need to double it for the actual circumference). If you're aware a certain cut of pants has a wider leg opening, wouldn't that affect your purchase decision so that you opt for one that is a straight leg or tapered leg (or not purchase at all)? You don't need to go bespoke or spend tons of money to get the look you're going for.

How can you take the time to make 30,000 posts on SF and post photos of yourself online for other men to critique but decide taking the time to find a pair of pants with the hem width that looks best on you is too nitpicky?

caseyfud, do you have a wife, children, job, and house to look after? I'm not saying Stitchy shouldn't be pickier about some of the details of fit, but you need to consider that "close enough" may be what he has time for. Or maybe he just hates shopping in stores. Who knows? In any case, that inch of hem is not the most pressing area for improvement.

Favorite pair of Epaulet Walt Slim trousers. I need a new pair of shoes.

what he's trying to say (albeit poorly) is that if you're already taking the time to post here, take pictures of yourselves and purchase expensive clothing, you might as well bother to pay attention to the details anyway -- you've already opened the door, you might as well walk in.

If your wife and kids are keeping you from finding that perfect hem width then it's probably time to find a new family.

Please help me understand the difference here. The first jacket (IST66's jacket) received much praise here, and I agree. However the second jacket, which is mine, is very similar and was not well received at all. The first one emphasizes the black, whereas the second emphasizes the red. The pattern repeats 14-times over the length of the IST66's jacket and 8-times in my jacket. Perhaps those two features are enough to give IST66's jacket a more-refined look. Mine is obviously dated, but is cashmere, which I like. I was pretty much ready to put my jacket aside based on the advice received here, by people I much respect, when I saw the multiple praises of the former. So I have to decide whether to invest another $60 getting the sleeves lengthened and chest let out (on top of the $100 original purchase price). What am I missing? I'm not trying to defend my jacket, just trying to understand the subtleties and make a good decision. As always, Thanks
IST66's jacket, My jacket
