I think the issue is pocket flare if you have the pants reduced at the waist too much. If you're having some seat adjustment and slimming it as well, it usually works out pretty well. I think 3 is about as far as I would go.

What are these boots?

 

I saw these boots in a photoshoot for the brand Hard Graft. White boots isn't really something I've ever considered, but these look sweet to me. If anyone has any clue what boot they might be, I'd love to hear it. I e-mailed Hard Graft, but unfortunately the boot belongs to the model, and so it doesn't have any affiliation with Hard Graft.

 

I posted a thread for this as well, but came across this thread after and thought it may be a bit better. I hate to be the guy that keeps jamming this question down everyones throat, but I'm really into these shoes, and cannot for the life of me find out where they're from.

Not the same boots, but similar: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Marsell-Paletta-Lace-Up-Boots-Size-41-5-Brand-New-in-Box-White-/201137042382

Perhaps that will help you along your journey.

Can you wear a shawl collar sweater/jumper under an overcoat? I can't find any images

I want to replace black plastic buttons on of my cardigans by wood/horn buttons, what site do you recommend?

Should I be able to put my index finger behind my heel (completely) when trying dress shoes ?

I would say so, yes, but you may have to put the collar up on both.

Hey guys, does this tie and pocket square combo work? I'm worried the base colours might be too alike.

And if it doesn't, is this any better?

Neither. Get a lighter square. The color should be light to stand out from the jacket and the pattern and colors should contrast the tie not blend with it.

So for example for the purple tie I shouldn't just get a light purple square, I should get another colour all together? I want a square that's a bit eye catching you know and not just a safe white one, but I'm as you might have realized not too familiar with the rules of how to match a tie and pocket square.

EDIT:
Could something like this possibly work? The suit's navy blue by the way.

It's a bit busy but that's loads better. And as for 'something more eye catching than white' there's few shades more eye catching than white. A well chosen tie and white square look excellent. Patterned squares can look great but don't go down that road because of an ill-placed desire to be different, go there when it's most appropriate with the nature of the outfit.

Thanks for the great advice. The reason I don't really want a white square is because the occasion is a student 'sitting' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sittning), so even if the dress code is business suit (I think and hope that's the correct translation) it's not going to be super formal and I want something that says 'party'. And I personally think that a white square, while nice looking, is a bit.. stiff, I guess.

And while I'm at it, I've found some other squares that I kinda like that aren't quite as busy if you don't mind giving some more feedback:

I like the purple tie, so that's pretty much set. You think any of these squares will go nicely with it?

Can always do a white square in a slight different fold (nothing too bold).

Wow, thanks a ton. Not sure I'll be able to pick them up, but the fact that you found something incredibly similar, and in my size even, is much appreciated!
