post #17356 of 33123

I'm not exactly an expert (yet :P) but I don't like it. And it looks quite casual. Sorry :/ Could you post a pic of the pants/black AEs?

post #17357 of 33123

Hey I'm new to the site and I'd just like to say that this forum is addicting and has skyrocketed my shoe obsession. I've been upgrading my wardrobe and am looking to move away from always wearing canvas shoes.  I've been looking for a brown leather shoe or boot that I can wear with jeans and a button up. Something not too dressy but not clunky and overly casual. I have a pair of AE walnut Cliftons that I love but they're a little too dressy for the look I'm going for. The Clarks desert boots get good reviews and I almost bought a pair but I'm just not a huge fan. So does anyone have a "Go-To" shoe that fits this description?

 

 

I really like the color and cap toe of these but haven't been able to find them online:

Hi, I posted this question in Streetwear & denim forum with no replies so thought id try here.

 

I am in the process of buying my first load of casual long sleeve shirts to wear in the day time - to the shops, out with friends/girlfriend, to the pub, cinema, restaurants , etc

 

i've bought 2 flannel shirts, a plain white shirt, a light blue shirt, and a small navy checked shirt, all cotton

 

So i was thinking of getting a horizontal stripe shirt, how is this green stripe one, for a 27 year old man, wearing for the above locations?:

are denim jeans and dark brown boat shoes best suited with this shirt?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also, as i only wear light, mid, and dark blue denim jeans and creme chinos, i was thinking of getting some black jeans, but prefer the faded look,

what do others think of these black faded jeans?

- im not sure what does and doesnt go well with them?  footwear especially, does dark brown boat shoes look ok with them?

 

if black and brown never suit well, what footwear can i wear with black faded jeams and a casual shirt?

 

 

 

thanks

Not to be a dick but isn't that shirt a vertically striped shirt and not a horizontally striped shirt? wink.gif

 

I like the shirt, especially the color, but in my opinion it's 20% shirt and 80% how the shirt fits you. So if it fits you well then I'd say pull the trigger on it. If I were wearing this shirt I'd rock em with a dark wash blue jean and more of a walnut colored oxford or chukka. I think a beige boat shoes would go well too. I have a pair of black jeans that I wear when I want to mix things up. I normally wear em with black or white shoes.

Thanks!

Are the pants black? I assume so, but can't tell with the flash.

If they're actually black, then it's awful. If they're not, well...it's still awful but very slightly less so. Just way too casual looking shoes for anything approaching black tie, "creative" or no.

The black PAs would be fine. Just shine the hell of them.

*It doesn't help that I also have no idea where to look.

Umm, perhaps here? www.cheaney.co.uk/mens-shoes/1/classic You could also try Herring Shoes online and a few other sites.

That would be a Bengal stripe shirt and my personal opinion is that it is a staple you should have in a few colors, red, green, blue and purple. I omit red because it just is not a good color on me. Works fine with denim or chinos. (It is vertical stripe BTW)

yes that was an error, i meant vertical stripes.

luckily i have a friend who is skilled in clothing tailoring, so i can get a nice fit edited.

 

any other opinions on this shirt and back faded jeans? what would you wear with them

Cheaney's site doesn't list the specific boot in question, neither does Herring/Pediwear/etc.

Anyone feel free to speak up if you disagree with me but I would prefer sticking with a nice set of blue jeans because your shoe options are far greater. I feel like black jeans are actually LESS dressy than a dark wash blue jean. Most of the time when I see someone wearing black jeans it's paired with a black or white sneaker. I like these pumas but I don't think I'd wear them with that shirt.

 

If you're dead set on wearing that shirt with black jeans I'd suggest a black or grey chukka?

I often read comments that you should avoid using a jacket from a pair of suit as a sports jacket alone. Can somebody elaborate how a jacket from a suit and an individual sports jacket differ when you look at them?
