Hello Gentlemen

 

I have a question for you. My pants fit very well when the pockets are empty. However, when I add the necessities like keys, phone, card holder, lighter, and sometimes cigarettes they tend to look rather bad. How do you guys combat the bulging pockets? Leaving things at home isn't really an option as I need all the items previously listed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Maximator.

Would anyone happen to know the sizing on these Maison Martin Margiela High-top sneakers?

I'm a size 9.5-10; the ones I'm suppose to be getting are a size 9, so I'm wondering would they fit?

Are the mmm's true to size? smaller or have a bigger fit?

 

Thanks.

Wear a jacket.

Good advice, except I live in a place where temperatures climb above 25-30C(that's 82-86F for you guys across the pond), which makes wearing a jacket really uncomfortable. I also REALLY hate sweat stains on my shirts. Also, as business dress tends to be a bit less formal here(China that is) wearing a jacket when everyone is just wearing a shirt just makes you look awkward.

This. Or a small satchel (maybe a filsons field bag), messenger bag or a folio.

Thanks for the opinion.  What exactly is awful?

Thoughts on these? The only one I really second guess myself on is the third look , but other then than I think I'm getting better. Tell me if I'm wrong, or if I could do better. My only limitations at this point: I sort of discovered I only have striped ties, except for the polo logo one shown here. I'm also thinking some lighter colored shoes would have worked better with some of these, but the ones I'm wearing in everything are the only 'nicer' shoes I have. Due for an upgrade soon . . . 

 

Thanks!

Can't tell if it's just the limitations of the camera, but the tie looks like it matches very closely with the shoes in the first pic. I would shy away from that. I like the second one a lot although I always undo the top two buttons if I'm not wearing a tie. I think you could get away with that. The third is kinda "meh" with that billowy sweater. Then again I'm more of a cardigan guy myself.

Hello Gentlemen

 

I have a few short questions

 

1. Are there any occasions where rubber soled shoes are absolutely not allowed(style wise)?

 

2. When you wear a jacket indoors, what dictates when you can take it off? Is it majority rules, or are there some other more hidden rules? Or can I just do it whenever it gets too hot?

 

3. Biking and formal wear, any tips there, or is that just a no-no. The reason I ask is that in my city, biking is usually the fastest method of transportation. 

 

4. Can a stylish gentleman combine short sleeved shirts(tucked in and everything) with formal (aka business etc) pants? 

 

5. Cargo pants - In terms of style, yay or nay(personally, I love them. I can carry all my stuff around without anyone noticing)?

 

6. Dust, It seems that all my clothes ALWAYS get dusty or fussy even if they are fresh from the cleaner. How do you guys keep your clothes dust free?

 

7. Sunglasses - How/where do you store them when you are indoors and you obviously can't be wearing them? I've tried pretty much everything and it always ended up looking awkward. 

 

Thanks for your help!

1) No, depending on the formality of the shoe
2) Many people remove jackets in the office when not in meetings, etc. It depends on the culture of your office
3) Keep your pants away from the chain. happy.gif
4) No
5) Nay
6) Clothes brush. Kent brushes are quite good and they sometimes sell seconds cheap on Ebay.
7) On your desk, perhaps in a case. If you don't wear a pocket square and they are nice sunglasses, some place them in the outer breast pocket of the jacket.

Get jackets made out of linen or cotton/linen blends. That or lightweight wools with an open weave to let air flow through. I lived in the American South and did just fine with lightweight wools and such year-round (much to the amusement and amazement of friends/colleagues). Even lightweight shirt-jackets would work for you, both functionally and meteorologically.

That or the do the small bag thing.
