Not the same. I always pose with one leg sticking further out and a bit bent. That can throw the quarters open a bit. All I know is you look good that suit. Case closed.
post #12872 of 37396

Agreed on case being closed.

Keep on buying Formosa suits.

Keep on buying nice staple ties. Also try ties made of materials other than wool.

Covered on shirts.

Shoes...to buy more would be living in luxury. Think I am fine here despite having just 2 SF approved pairs and 3 so-so pairs.

 

What's next?

Hats? Gold chain necklaces? Cane? 

I'll just lurk and fine tune. 

post #12873 of 37396

Yeah, this is my game plan.

I think I have far better shirts and jackets at this point, after having just bought. Shoes are also decent. I'm going to try eeking out a few more pairs of nice pants, with a staple grey first on the list. I just got rid of a bunch of shirts and few pairs of pants that don't fit right or that I probably would never wear again, as well as a bunch of ties that I doubt I'd ever touch again!

 

But I yearn for nice shooz.

 

All in good time. This year was better than the last, the next will be better than this.

You definitely need shoes so you can throw out those adidas you always wear. Either get yourself some nice sneakers if you're into streetwear, or get yourself some nice loafers for casual wear.

Before you close the case I believe this is extremely important

Yeah noodles, those meermin loafers are kewl.


Also, asics onitsuka tigers for streetwear. Or even just vans brah.

Don't listen to these lunatics, Noodles. Loafers and cool should never be used in the same sentence. You don't need to spend a ton on sneakers....Converse, Vans, and Adidas all make classic shoes that will always look good when worn right.

Right, some tie questions.

 

I've just seen that Exquisite Trimmings has a load of new Macclesfields in. I'm assuming given that they're small geometric patterns, they're most appropriate for CBD wear?

Also, I have a tie, which has a small stain on it. I have no idea what said stain is. What's the best way to try and get it out? Or is that not really possible and am I going to have to consign it to the bin? (I really would rather not as it's my favourite tie: it's a really nice dark green floral neat from ET and it ties a great knot)

Also, any idea who makes ET's ties? They say they're made in Italy, and I think I recognised some of the patterns when browsing the Cappelli website.

 

Last question, aren't ties just the best thing ever?

I'm also going to throw a chukka out as a great option for casual wear with jeans, Noodles.

post #12880 of 37396

Get at least some butteros and darkwash or raw denim. Your casual wear looks like it's straight from a 90s high school.

 

And yes, Adidas does make cool shoes. I used to have at least 10 pairs of rare and limited editions. The RUN DMC ones were my favourites. I was also 13 when I wore those.

Good shout NS, unlined of course Doodals nod[1].gif
post #12883 of 37396

I am also going to echo the Chukka love. Great shoes.

post #12884 of 37396

If I can only have one type of shoe it'd be the Chukka.

post #12885 of 37396

Aight...let's talk sneakers. 

I have this pair. I am sure there will be a lot of hate towards this.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The Adidas sneakers are like whatever.

I go to Diesel for jeans. I am an absolute noob on the casual side so that's another project for you guys once I settle down in MC.

I will post some pictures of the shirts that I wear for casual. Zegna, RLBL, Theory, etc. Like I said, I really don't know how to dress at all. So now I just dress how my wife wants me to dress (only for casual). Yes, she has my balls in her LV purse.

Dont you worry. I ain't about to go over to CM and have multiple picnic attacks. I need to solidify my MC.
