can't really decice which color, the dark dust ones are probably more suitable for spring/summer

 They have leather soles (rather than red brick) which I like.  Otherwise I'm guessing they're pretty much the same shape as McNairy/Sanders bucks.

Or how about dirty bucks like:



McNairy.

or sand:


Sanders

I'm leaning towards white bucks and the WWM ones in particular, but resisted immediate impulse buying in the store and thought I'd post here.

Any other brands/ suggestions?  I know Walk-over and J-Crew do cheaper bucks but they look kind of meh to me.  I like the idea of some suede Trickers but they're probably a bit chunky not to mention more expensive.

The WWM are made by cheany I think so you could just order a pair direct from them

If it were me I'd also choose a crepe or leather sole over red. I like my red brick soles but they're getting dated in the context of men's contemporary, and make the shoes an ounce less versatile, colorwise, and more definitively preppy.

 

Thanks for the replies, shoreman especially!

 

I was thinking of pairing them with olive pants and shorts mostly (really want some Post Overalls shorts), maybe sometimes light faded denim.  I wasn't planning on wearing them year round or anything like that. Though I was hoping they would be fairly versatile - I don't actually own any white sneakers - and would want to rock them in the distinctly average English spring/summer climate.

 

Definitely agree when it comes to red brick soles, though its quite hard to find bucks without them. I think that's half the reason I'm leaning towards the WWM ones.

I'll check this out, I had assumed Sanders made them.

Not a fan of brick soles. 

I've handled those Sanders. Felt great overall. Robust construction and nice thick sole. Also saw a dude wearing them a while back and they looked great worn in.

If it's Yoox - they button all the jackets, even the 3 roll 2s. The lapels on that one do look skimply but loks fine for casual wear if you don't button the top button.

Aspesi, cotton/linen blend. Pretty sure it can be worn as a 3-roll-2.

Yes

If this is the one that shows different colors at different angles and is shiny almost to the point of iridescence, it's extremely eye-catching and might not be the most versatile piece of outerwear imo. Isn't this one like 3 years old though? Where'd you find it?

Should I get it or not?
post #32232 of 39316
no (unless to resell)
post #32233 of 39316
SNS Stark cardigan for $70?
Has been tossed in the dryer and shows effects of wool pilling.

Still worth it?
post #32234 of 39316
If the measurements are right for you, yes. Go for it.
