HOF: What Are You Wearing Right Now - Part IV (starting May 2014) - Page 2600

post #38986 of 45009

Patterns and colors are great as usual, but I think this suit is a little bit too slim for you.

^ I really like this fit of yours and the colors are fantastic. As I scrolled down and saw sneakers, I was disappointed, though! I wish you had loafers on or something similar

I had the same reaction. I'm cool with the idea of sneakers with a suit, but I feel like it would have to be white kicks and a very casual, probably more "modern" suit, and likely without a tie. Adding running shoes to a more classic fit makes me think of my grandfather. He was awesome, but still.

It's possible that this had something to do with the choice of footwear:

Saw that, and I appreciate you pointing it out. I don't, however, think it negates a poster receiving feedback.

Of course not. And jcm is right. Instead of coming off as edgy or ironic, the trainers are merely frumpy, especially when paired with the khaki-ish pants (more Best Buy than Pitti).

I can understand the negative reactions to the sneakers. I wouldn't have chosen them myself if it wasn't a submission to the Pitti challenge, as was pointed out by Academic.

 

However, the sneakers were not chosen by random. I have a pretty wide sneaker selection and I have brands that are usually better suited to a jacket and tie fit like this (like Buttero, Common Projects or CQP). But 70s and 80s runners have been widely seen at Pitti during the last seasons. And by chosing the Jazz Low Pro "Vegan" I get two extra benefits:

 

- The Vegan thing (no animal products at all and only eco-friendly materials like hemp and Cork) is very pc

- Nothing in the whole fit is plain white. You have cream, ivory, beige, oatmeal, khaki etc, but nothing white. Thats why the Vegan's fitted in since they only have natural colours. 

 

So, I do understand the negative reactions to the fit, but there was thought behind it. If it works is another issue entirely.
