What do people here generally think about Burberry? I think some ppl are putting it in the Eurotrash category along with other overpriced stuff, but I really like some of their basic things like the sweaters and the jeans (really like the fit).
Especially thinking about this sweater and also the jeans:

Svb why not get a meermin black shoe and use the extra funds on a shell captoe alden. Alden DC has a cigar one with minimal commando which is really nice. Carminas are solid and skoak has them $100ish less than epaulet

SVB - the black derbys are fine with a suit most places (though London might be the one place they are less optimal than oxfords). I personally find black shoes to be less versatile and only wear black once every couple weeks though I wear suits almost daily (and then only with very dark suits).

Alden boots are nice and seem office friendly if you don;t wear suits much. Nice casual choice once you have the basics down I think.

The Carmina wingtips are probably the most versatile of the three and would work with suits as well as casual outfits both based on styling and colour (brown). I presume the price is also good relative to your other two choices.

One alternative might be a medium to dark brown derby (as opposed to the Carmina wingtip) as they would be slightly more casual (to my eyes anyway) and yet could still work with a suit. Though you profess to enjoy the look of your vintage longwings, the styling is more clunky and hence less versatile.

I like the smooth ones art, but both are great.

I've seen some geometric print sweaters before that were cool. Not sure on this one. Thoughts?

I think that, to some extent, the perception depends on which Burberry line it is - Prorsum gets a bit more respect around here (or at least it used to), whereas London or Brit are less highly regarded. Personally, I like a few things from Prorsum and London lines. For every item I've ever handled from either of those lines, the fabrics and fit have been pretty top-notch.

As for that sweater and those jeans, from the picture you provided, they look just fine. However, there's very little to distinguish them from any other sweaters or jeans. Depending on the price, you might be able to get something as good or better for the same price or less. Otherwise, I see no problem with either item.

Well I have problems finding nice V-Necks that don't look too bland. I don't know why but the way this thing fits, the style of the V-neck, the oversized cuff and the soft feel are what I really like about it. Also the deep blue color, the thing looks "just right" whereas in contrast cheap sweaters just all look the same.. I don't know how to describe it but it's right that the price is too high for such a basic item, which makes me really sad frown.gif

EDIT: Ah the picture I posted doesn't show the shoulder details: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Makes more sense now. Without that extra shoulder detail, I was thinking that it looked like a v-neck you could probably just get from John Smedley or Sunspel or something.

Personally, I don't care for that extra shoulder detail.

Gotta agree here.  I don't like the shoulder detail.  My biggest problem with the Brit line is that everything seems to HAVE to have the logo or the checks.

 

As for the jeans, I love the Shoreditch fit (not sure that's what those are, just saying).  Don't own a pair myself, but have tried on and thought about them several times.
