That's true too. But I think in CM there's the idea that you shouldn't be wearing the same suit every day or every other day. Both because suits will wear out more quickly than jeans and a leather jacket, but also because there is an undercurrent in CM of your clothes displaying your boogie membership, which means that you can afford more than two suits. Whereas I think it's more accepted to wear the same pair of jeans 4x/week indefinitely.

It's possible I mean CM lite, I'm not sure...If you want to experiment a lot and whatnot with different styles, then of course you'll need a larger set of items to choose from. But I think you can look pretty good with a pretty small wardrobe, both for tailored and street wear.

well, yes. but depending on how many time a week/month you wear that gear, it can get boring. at least for me. i try and mix it up.

also, same as i wrote above. i find that i need a variety of things, so i can put together different combinations and not feel like things are going stale.

i dont have all that many suits, SCs, or pants, at least not by a lot of SF standards, but between alternating what i do have, and using different shirts and ties, and doing some MC casual here and SWD there, it keeps me feeling fresh.

right now, for the first time in a long time, i dont feel i really "need" anything, i just want everything.

I'm not saying that it's not worth getting a lot of stuff. I definitely have a lot of stuff and don't regret it. I just think it's worth recognizing that most stuff I have is because I want it, not because I need it. Acknowledging that allows me to enjoy it more and not come up with contorted justifications for "needing" something new.

hmmmmm, i dont disagree with that, and im not sure what i may have said that may have come off that way.

i think we are very much on the same page here.

First inglese



Edit - cuffs and collar are very Italian.
And now I know what you guys meant when you said the shoulders were narrow. Accentuates the shoulders.

@gdl203@conceptual 4est and/or others: how does the sizing of the Castaner espadrilles compare to say converse, Common projects (CP), Margiela (MMM), Nike, or Alden Barrie. For reference I am a 41 in CPs, 42 in MMM, 9.5 in Nikes, 8.5 in Chucks, 8D Barrie. Would I be better off with a 41 or 42?

Same as MMM, 1 up from CP/Buttero size. That should result in a snug fitting espadrille. If you want a looser fitting espadrille, you can go up one more.

I'm guessing no restocks on any of the espadrilles, correct?

They also give broad-shouldered guys a good and comfortable fit.

For anyone on the edge about castaner espadrilles, those things are really really amazing.

+1 … I bought the Navy a few months ago and fell in love with these. Great construction and very comfortable. I started wearing them so much that I got the Natural a couple of weeks ago. I would have never considered buying espadrilles this expensive until I saw these on NMWA, but NMWA has a way of doing that smile.gif

^ I have the same two pairs - Navy and Ecru. Good stuff. fistbump.gif

I looked around online at all sorts of Espadrilles and didn't find too many that I cared for. This sale price on NMWA was the lowest I saw this particular one - closer to $100 seemed to be the discounted price elsewhere. No size 45 for me anywhere on the internet, though. Late to the party.
