not correct. i have tried it. it irks me to no end having the waist of my pants cross over my stomach like that and on my sides. i just find pants much more comfortable lower down my waist and right above my hips. its just what i find comfortable. what can i say.

You need trousers with a high rise, that are made to be worn higher. If you're affecting your reproductive health, you're doing it wrong. In fact, if they're cut for braces, they'll be a little bit looser (since the braces are keeping them up), so everything should be a little more comfortable.

yes i know. that was funny.

yay. them pents I am wearing today are an inch loose in the waist, but fit perfectly everywhere else. it's heavenly comfortable. stitchy, maybe the high rise pents you have tried were not meant for braces, and were not as loose?

Just making the point that IME brown shoes with pretty much any suit stands out like dogs bollocks where I live and all of the countries I've been too. I've not been to Russia (is that where Victor lives?) though so it may not be applicable. I was under the impression that it's mostly just Italy and America where this isn't true, but you probably have a much more experience than me.

Not that I care about standing out, just that I thought that would be a negative ITT.

If it were a suit, I would not have said anything. With a blazer and grays, non-black always looks better IMO. Only exception would be for the evening, white shirt, solid dark tie.

What square would you wear in that case? I'm tempted to do something similar next time I have to dress nicer than usual in the evening, but I shy away from pairing a white square with a white shirt.

It's tricky.  I have some sympathy with the 'is he American' comment:  I agree it looks better, but in London in my experience blazer and greys with black shoes is far more acceptable than with brown (albeit blazer and greys is never even semi-CBD).

I personally find any dark shoes with light grey pants disgusting, but that is just a thing of mine. go figure. Black shoes with blazer and greys are commonly seen around these parts, too.
post #6582 of 13589
Disgusting? Wow, that's a very strong sentiment for such a thing. Save that kind of high emotion for folded silk... biggrin.gif

Well, Victor's trousers were not light grey.  But in any event, the black shoes issue is more a matter of social convention than anything else over here.

lol. yea, it's an irrational thing. but I don't find folded silk disgusting tongue.gif

I don't know if it's better as much as more Italian or American vs more English or French. There's nothing "wrong" with black shoes there IMHO, although brown shoes do allow more variation on what is a fairly standard look.
