i think i remember someone linking to a gq article a while back, that recommended wearing a blazer to the gym. i'm still convinced it was a joke.

IMO new balance can add interesting contrast

First one doesn't even look like he's wearing a blazer in the photo. If he was standing up straight, smiling, he would probably look ridiculous; otherwise he's wearing gymwear and looks fine.

The second picture looks fine to me, I have no complaints, but the New Balance isn't adding anything, and I think if it was a profile shot with the big-ass Ns visible on the side I would have complaints. Plainer shoes in the same colour, esp without ugly running soles, would look better. This is "casual suit with addition of windbreaker," it is not a workout outfit with a blazer thrown on top.

This is a best-case scenario, and again, it's the red shoes and their relative plainness -- the fact they are New Balance has very little to do with it, and the same thing without big Ns would look better, not worse.

I'll leave it at that, so as not to belabour the point. But the New Balance brainwashing has got to stop. There is nothing at all special about the overarching brand, and most of its individual shoes are quite ugly.

New Balance in general (outside of the gym) is just a bad joke perpetrated on the pliant by GQ and its investors.

I saw this Asian girl with black leggings (not lulu lemon), long black coat and a nice Celine purse with red NBs on her feet. I liked it but maybe that's because she was an Asian girl laugh.gif

This is what I'm worried about, that it screams more TB than anything else. I'd hope to wear it more like Synth, in a less collegiate and more relaxed way, with my faded APCs and GATs. Maybe buy a pair of brown combat boots (been meaning to get some for ages anyways). Maybe even with some White denim and my pair of HMMMMMMM white painteds

Ha but waiting for UC jackets is like a lottery. Every so often a truly great piece from their archives will pop up in the right size and at a not-outrageous price, but who knows when something will actually come along. I can see you rocking a BBall, C4

TB? I'm just not seeing it... puzzled.gif

In the spirit of casual, lightweight jacket:

Is that KVA-era? Cotton or techno-fabric?

There was a TB varsity on Oki-Ni this past season that I contemplated for a while but up close the herringbone was made of pink and green, and I think that combination would make me look seasick.
