i am thinking if it is good to make a pair of cuffed pant and wear with chelsea boots
Well, the nationality of the shoes is the least important factor. I admit, the nicest shoes I own are AEs, but I've had the chance to check out a number of costlier options. Many of them are quite a bit nicer. The Grenson Masterpiece captoes that called my name at Paul Stuart (jawdroppingly cheap, but too similar to my Strands), for example, were made from obviously nicer leather, with better stitching and were much nicer to hold and look at. They were also more comfortable, and everything I have read suggests that they would last at least a little better.
It's also an aesthetic issue -- AE trying to do an elegant, English shoe is like me trying to intimidate somebody. It's just not convincing.
I'm getting married later this month, and I have my suit and tie picked out, but I'd like some feedback on the pocket square.
I'm not looking to impress menswear experts because I'm sure I'm incapable of that, but I'm more looking for a "don't worry that's not going to make people go blind with how horrible it is" kind of feedback. The wedding itself is not super formal at all - ceremony and reception are in an old wood/brick/concrete space adjoining a flower shop.
Color options are limited due to the wedding palette of greens / golds / creams (bride will be in an ivory kind of color which is lighter and more yellow / less brown than my tie). One thing I wonder is whether doing a silk ps is the right choice. I feel like for a wedding having both tie and ps be silk is probably okay, but what do you think?
I apologize for the sloppy dressing job, I wanted to get this posted before I left for work.
I pulled it out to give a better idea of the color and pattern for the picture, but even then I didn't mean to show that much of it. It does look really distracting, especially in the thumbnail.
I can see that white linen would look nice and I know it's the classic choice, so I'm totally happy doing that. Are you saying that nothing I do with that ps will look as good as a crisp white linen?
It's possible the bride may some color in the ps and if I go with a color, do you have any suggestion of what to do differently?
Thanks. It actually looks like the Kent Wang white linen ps is only $20. For that price, I will put the groomsmen all in that ps.
