I failed at trying to find these online.

Yeah, I think sweatpants+oxford could be cool. If the sweatpants were an interesting material, it'd be kind of neat to wear a tie made from the same material.

Anyway, thinking about kopping these Loake boots for fall, but I don't know how I feel about the bit of fake distressing. They're about $210, factoring in current GBP:USD conversion rates, so if you guys can think of any better-looking goodyear welted wingtip boots in that price range, let me know.

Chrono mean these?

I searched "hope sweat pants" and got that as the first hit.

They were on the actual hope site but i'm sure they're gone by now since they were previous seasons. The ones i was thinking of didn't have black tie like that. Looked almost just like trousers. There was this brand on revolve's fashionforward site with a weird name i'm not used to that had some sweat looking pants (wool with elastic band) that were really nice and no one would know they're sweats really.

Random question: what's the deal with the white leather belt? I've seen a few guys wearing them lately and with the right outfit it seems to look bad-ass, I just don't want to come off too metro. I saw Guess made a pretty cool one but I can't seem to find it. Any suggestions? I'm assuming dark jeans, dark shirt?

No, do not do this. Matching shoes and belts is usually bad to begin with; if you do it with white, it's heinous.

White belts can work with the right colors; it's easier with shades of black or grey, and generally works best with slightly nicer and more minimal fits.

Refer to MC board; but as long as the colors are different tones it's fine, but I (and many others) find perfectly matching belt and shoes looks kinda stuffy and way too coordinated. Kinda the same deal with matching tie and pocket square I think.

Fair enough. I mainly wear black shoes and belt though. :x

Yeah, for some reason I picture a white belt going good with jeans and sandals in the summer time when you're a bit more tan... I don't know if that would look good... guess I'll have to see.

The fake distressing shouldn't be bad, put some Obenauf's on it to restore the leather and you'll have your own wear on them soon enough. They look nice and should be well made. Take pictures if you get them.

Also, +1 on Vashin's SDA 103 rec above for your needs, awesome jeans, wearing mine today.
