Yeah, I was definitely experimenting a bit with this look. I'm not sure agree with the idea of untucking the shirt but maybe an untucked polo is better. I do see the belt buckle and cuffs as throwing it off, and I wasn't sure about the shoes either. I think sneakers could work in this context but maybe just not the Vans which are kind of shapeless and clunky.
I'm starting to think that cuffs just aren't right for pants that aren't either denim or wool dress pants. I think I may have all my chinos hemmed.
