Is it stupid to wear wingtips brogues in suede leather at high school?

post #16367 of 30509
Depends; I would advise against it if the rest of the ensemble was for example sweatpants and a hoodie.

What if I wear the shoes with oxford shirt, jeans and chinos? Blue wingtips would be more casual than brown ones, right?

Blue suede shoes are more costume than traditional men's shoes. Brown suede brogues would certainly work with chinos. Pairing them with jeans is probably more of a streetwear thing, but if you're talking about high school, you probably need not be too worried about how closely you're following the "rules" of traditional menswear since you're not in an environment where you're being evaluated on those terms. Based on my recollections of high school, I would imagine that wearing brown suede brogues and properly fitted chinos would put you among the best-dressed students in high school.

I did this. I also wore a tie to school every day and it was a public school with no dress code. It boosted my self-esteem and made me feel better than everyone else but I didn't get any female attention until I was a senior and even then it was pretty terrible.

Question about Shirt Makers with High Collars

 

I'm one of those with a long skinny neck and am told that a dress shirt with a higher collar is better for me. So

 

Any RTW shirt maker recommendations, pros and cons, different price points, where collars are higher? MTM suggestions good too. Not ready to go bespoke.

 

I'd appreciate not just brands and price range, but your experiences (good and bad). Thanks

Borrelli and Finamore have great high collars that are RTW. Be prepared to spend $250+ on them. If you look at Shop The Finest you can get some good deals, like half that sometimes. As far as MTM I am always hesitant to tell anybody to use the online guys. Where are you located? There are a lot of good shirtmakers in large cities.

That shirt is from Uniqlo. There's no telling whether it's still available there given how fast their inventory turns over, though.

It was listed in the caption for that GQ photo. I don't know where you can get a similar shirt, but frankly, it's kind of a novelty pattern so unless you already have a closet full of shirts, it's probably not the most versatile choice.

Really? WOW i dont know how i missed the caption, im an idiot.

I love the way it looks in the image with a black tie, looks sharp so thats why im specifically looking for that pattern.

Bear in mind that unless you plan on always striking the right pose, being in the right dramatic lighting, and being in front of a black background, it's possible it won't look as sharp for you, as it did on the model in the GQ photo.

And dah328 is absolutely correct, that it's an item of highly limited versatility.

Me too.  I wore a tie, hardly jeans and the kids at my high school actually thought it was pretty cool.  Now, it also helped in terms of the girl situation as it made me appear more 'mature'. lol! happy.gif
