Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2053

post #30781 of 38122

It looks good in the shoulder and sleeve length, little short in overall length (that's probably intentional though) and a little tight in the chest.

My main issue is the discrepancy between the shoulder of the jacket and my actual shoulder, which more or less follows the red line. It causes this second bump a little bit below the shoulder of the jacket that looks kinda weird to me, but maybe I'm being too particular.

It doesn't work for a variety of reasons, including:

boxy fit below the chest

tight fit at the chest

not fitting at shoulders

It's not awful, but I think you'll find a better fit
post #30785 of 38122
R&B right? I mean it looks fine, kinda flimsy and actually a little too cropped, depending on what price you paid I'd say you could find better

Notwithit, don't buy that. What size are you? I may be able to help.

Not really my style, but here is my dilemna.  I'm in a wedding where I have to wear black shoes.  I have no black dress shoes.  I have brown, burgandy, whisky, dark whisky shoes.  Anyways.  Some options I have are (a) borrow a pair (meh) (b) buy a pair and then return it (nordstroms, meh) or (c) buy a pair of black shoes that is more my style and keep it or (d) buy these for fun.  

 

any options that i'm missing?  oh, yea, worth 5 bills or not.

May I respectfully suggest buying a pair of black dress shoes for the occasion? I'm assuming you are in the wedding party and wearing a suit hence the need for black shoes to match the rest of the fellows standing up for the groom. The boots above will stand out more than if you wore dark burgundy and are extremely casual. Your choices range from a wholecut to a captoe to something with subtle brogueing. Captoe might be the sweet spot here. While black shoes are not great daywear for most casual outfits, they can work great with dressed up club clothes.

^^ you know, I think you're right.

 

So, now onto these Blanc & Noir low tops.  Normally I don't buy things for the sake of it when it's on sale, but I did this time and I'm reminded why you shouldn't buy things for the sake of the discount %.  Nice leather, made in Italy about 75% off, but I'm not sure if they look good.  Comparing them to my normal white sneaker beaters, which I quite like.  Keep or no?

I'm still confused at the wear and return bit.

Blazer up there looks like your girlfriend's.

Prefer the hi version, but lows are nice too

rag and bone suiting is some of the most severe and annoyingly/stupidly skinny/cropped I've tried on, SA's at the stores even suggest it's supposed to look all pulled and shrink wrapped. Do not fux with.
