Alfred Sargent and Loake should have something similar, British would call the shoes gunboats or American blucher / brogue

Thanks. These are more than what I'm willing to spend at the moment, but once I start working a little more in the summer/fall, I will definitely look into it.

Decent value is what I was thinking. I wasn't expecting "master craftsmanship" at the price point. It's good to know that Nordstrom might be incorrectly advertising these. Shame on you, Nordstrom

Nice, but I don't like the pebble grain leather on this particular shoe (I think that's what it is).

Top grey looks nice. I can definitely see it worn with some black jeans.

Coach that doesn't scream 'lol. im coach'
Looks like a baby 5zip

Kinda pricey for its size

I would not even consider the first. The second one is great though.

If you can shell out the money, I'd say go for it.

I know I did a similar post a couple of days ago, but I'm really finding it difficult to find a pair of nice off-white jeans or trousers.

Don't wanna pay a lot since there's a risk I wont be wearing them much.

 

ATM, It's either one if these jeans

It's not a hood, it is an S&M head cover.

Like EG a lot and this colour is good. Don't buy if you hate elastic cuffs though, it will bother you everytime.

Just checked some on ebay and they don't seem slim enough. Too expensive for something that probably wont get a lot of wear as well.

I don't mind elastic sleeves, but the one I'd be getting is the khaki color. It looks great. Will probably get it later this week if it is still around. Thanks for the advice guys.

Fuuma, kind of surprised you like EG

those uniqlo jackets look pretty good. I like the black one for black jeans. the grey would also look good with white jeans for a summer look.
