For the record though, isn't the Skoak shoe that flVinny posted a Carlos Santos and not Carmina?

Very nice of you to share your experience, and that color looks great, but:

Yes, the first pic was indeed a Carlos Santos shoe, and not one of Skoak's Carminas.

Dark blue linen shirts. I own them, I just can't seem to like them. To me, a shirt is supposed to be light colored. Can't make my peace with it.

Thoughts?

Wear them with chinos instead of a polo, shirt sleeves rolled up. I have never seen a tie that would work, neither dark nor light. They might work with a sportcoat sans tie, but I am not a fan of the look. I have combined a dark blue rollneck with an oatmeal tweed blazer and gray flannels, so a similar colour combination might work for summer.

I don't think that latter combination would work for summer. It always looks affected with a sportcoat, sleazy.

I guess you're right that it's best worn (if at all) in a purely resort context.

A tie is beyond out of the question.

Why do you own them if you don't like them and find them very difficult to use?

I ask myself the same thing every time I go on a date.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

What do you think of these CJ unlined loafers? I'm thinking of the navy to wear with white/cream trousers almost solely (don't think blue shoes goes well with too much else)

Also: America is hot. But at least I can wear these sunglasses where nobody can recognise me.

I think navy suede shoes work with sand khaki's as well!

post #36629 of 37428
Clags how do you even wear coat and tie?

Yeah sand would work but it's basically offwhite tongue.gif still yes I think I might get them just to wear with those colors. Thoughts?
