post #20776 of 31168

I'm here to ask a question that can be stated in one word, a word full of contextual meaning.  Please associate it with the following picture and ask the question yourself.

 

Why?

 


This... thing... is a cotton-linen blend.  Meaning it's for use in the summer.

The price?  $2352.00.

Hello all,

 

So, just had a quick question about these shoes. Could they be worn with jeans/chinos/dress pants? All three? Only dress pants?

 

Thank you very much!

What Casual Sneakers to Buy?

I've currently only got Nike Free Runs for a casual sneaker and im going to grab another pair. These will typically be paired with a pair of khaki shorts. or some jeans. i'm athletic (soccer), and prefer white, as all my other pairs are black brown etc. and these are two pairs i have narrowed my search down to. What do you guys think? If you have any other suggestions feel free to share them.

I'm not sure, but why'd you steal a picture from someone's social media profile? That's pretty weird and creepy.

You would be better asking and looking in Street Wear & Denim. There is whole threads dedicated to what to wear with sneakers. CM is about tailored clothes, suits and ties and similar.

I'd wear them with all three without hesitation, but IMHO it would make them marginally more suitable for that if they had open (derby) lacing, like this:

To me the ties look too casual for a blue suit.  The shirt is also a part of the problem.  For me, that shirt would be better suited for a casual outfit. 

Head over to Norstroms or The Rack and see if you can pick up a few shirt and tie options.  A light blue shirt is easiest to work with.  With a blue shirt your tie options really open up.

@ Vinny - If your comment was directed towards me: I took the photo from ebay because I'm deciding on a purchase. I don't find that creepy at all. If your comment was not directed towards me, please disregard. 

 

@MikeDT - I understand your point, but I also wanted to know if they were wearable with dress pants (i.e. for more formal occasions), which would make it appropriate to post it both here and in street wear, no? My apologies if not. 

 

@Sinfjotli - Thanks so much. Really appreciate it!

post #20786 of 31168
Bartleby, neither Vinny nor MikeDT were talking to you. Chill.
post #20787 of 31168

I wasn't upset.

Can anyone help me either identify it or the best way to describe this type of fabric/suit?

Colorwise - is this what one calls "Oxford grey"? 

Probably newbie questions, but trying to educate myself ;)

 

Hoping this is the right place for this question..

Thanks in advance :)

 

 

This looks to me like it is a simple worsted wool (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worsted), perhaps a sharkskin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharkskin), with the color just called mid grey. Just FYI, most suits are made from wool and most of them are worsteds. Here is a good start for fabric decoding:

Are the laces too wide here? The one on the left is a tiny bit looser than the right. Salesperson told me that the shoe would 'break in' but I snapped a shot just to ask you guys and make sure. 



post #20790 of 31168

The 'saleperson' is the usual. A liar telling you anything to make a buck.

Break in a gap like that? No.

And that gap is grossly wide and ugly.

I prefer mine quite tight and I have seen a few that prefer a bit less so that is still alright

but what you have is........not good.

Do not buy or do return.
