This.  If you are going to do the look that @gdl203 recommends

1) Go tieless, and wear a shirt that has a collar that looks great open.  I personally like Barba, but any number of companies make shirts that will work.  

2) Get shoes that work with jeans.  

 

The first is really easy. the second, seemingly hard for a lot of guys in classic menswear to get. Something like chelsea boots, or jodhphurs, or of course, chukkas/desert boots.  But not high shine double monkstraps, at least not for most guys.  I've seen some cool cats do it with loafers well, but I can't.

EG Galway seems to be a decent CM-ish option? Or some of the Bonafe boots?

@LA Guy what's a fun foul weather SW&D boot that's not overly chunky?

Don't have time to look but any options for gucci-esque gently flared trousers?  (but at significantly lower price point) 

 

Am I out of luck and should i just get it tailored (if that's possible)

Slack seems cool for isolated discussion/projects but i'm looking for having multiple discussions/threads over a time of maybe years (if it's sustained) so.  

Forums and discussion boards work really well to bring strangers who share specific interests or concerns together.  They are like lighthouse beacons.  The problem with making a forum for work, where everyone knows each other and probably have pre-existing modes of communication is that inertia is really strong, and unless the platform is both obviously better than existing forms of communication and/or you can mandate that all or at least part of the communications occur on that medium (say, "hey everyone, Slack meeting at 1 p.m., see you in #boringshitthisweekthatwegottado") that the new medium will simply not be adopted.  I know.  I tried to make forum for a large group project.  We tried it for a while, but for the most part, people stayed with email, or slack, or phone, or whatever they were using already.

 

That said, if you really want to build a forum xenforo (https://xenforo.com/) is probably a good way to go.

Um, as in, has a lug sole, or something else?  Vibergs are about as tough as you get, I suppose.  Maybe Guidi&Rosselini?  I am a big fan of those...

Discourse is a pretty well made forum.

Something like Timbs maybe?

Redwing Iron Rangers in the "Hawthorne" rough-out are still my favorite boots. And 1/3 of the price of Viberg and G&R.

I had a Vibergs before, think if I were to get another pair it would be close to the 3sixteen ripple sole roughout.

I've been very happy with my Dr Martens Arthur boots so far

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Feels like dm has stepped up their game quite a bit

I got a pair of the talibs and the leather is noticeably nicer than my 1460 mono's

Now they just need to make half sizes

Thought of this recently. Can a tailor make a flare in regular fit trousers? Really want to make something like these yohji's that I regrettably missed out on

Two things to avoid:
  1. office all the way but slacks replaced by raw jeans aka the Ralph Lauren employee look;
  2. Office on top party at the bottom aka the lumberjack accountant look (navy blazer+ knit tie+blue spread collar shirt worn with raw jeans + sturdy boots)

Re options for flared trousers... Any ideas? @Parker @Fuuma
