Can't look serious with those Bexley shoes

^ I agree with sprout but nice SuSu suit.

@Koala-T
I am glad to see your improvements. I agree with Cox on his points. I bet the Titanic can sail thru the leg space. Try to stand naturally and not with your legs so much apart. I personally hate khaki trousers. May I suggest a nice pair of light grey wool trousers?

Thanx @Betelgeuse!

 

 

Love the upper half, but if i am not mistaken, you paired Chelse boots with it, right? If so, i do think this type of shoe is too casual for the rest of the outfit...other than that, it looks great.

Gentlemen, for your viewing "pleasure":

 

 


I strongly disagree about the chelsea boots. A patterned SC coupled with a knit tie and button-down shirt is about as casual as it gets. 

Nice outfit on your end though. I generally dislike red SCs, but you somehow make it look good. Not bad at all @Dennis Walter

I think some would say that Chelsea boots are best reserved for non tailored clothing, or at least not a sport coat and tie. Some may disagree, but it looks a bit "fancy" to my eye.

A fall day in NYC with somewhat cooler temperatures - today's ensemble works better with the meteorology than some have of late.

Suit - BB Regent
Shirt - Thomas Pink
Tie - Charvet
Cufflinks - DVVS, NYC
PS - Robert Talbott
Shoes - Harris, via Barney's Boston

I think the Chelseas are more than fine. Maybe it is one of those regional things.

@Dennis Walter those trousers look great. Very sharp.

My limited experience with shirts from Harvie & Hudson is that they're better than Tyrwhitt/Lewin/Curtis & Hawes, not as good as Turnbull or Hilditch, but a very good price/quality ratio.

Actually, Chelseas (assuming a reasonably dressy last) are wholly appropriate and quite traditional even with quite dressy suits.  Here's an example from one of Hardy Amies's books.

 

 

It's a very British look.

 

Cheers,

^^^ I recall that Guardian article - particularly the comments section.  I was  more surprised (read: faux-outraged) about his gingham shirt and brown mirror-finish silk satin tie.:sly:

I think this might be one of those things that is historically accurate but doesn't have much currency outside of the UK.

 

An ensemble like Hardy Amies picture cited as reference would look borderline anachronistic today, too.

post #26713 of 44062
It definitely has currency within the mod community.

Chelsea boots are preferred by both Ralph Lauren and DocHolliday of the SF's "old guard." Suede chelseas and gray flannels are a handsome combination, IMO. I would even wear black calf chelseas with a suit.
post #26715 of 44062
i don't intend to cause any controversy - but all I'll say is RMs are very common in Aus with everything from suits to jeans, and while I think the look can be overdone here I think these are a refined enough last and dark enough colour to pair well with a sportscoat and flannels. Maybe it's not the done thing in the USA, but I'm not in the USA of course.

Not that I really thought about any of this before tbh - quite simply it's been very wet here so I wore my storm welted boots!
