post #30976 of 33313

Signed up to get some advice on getting myself a jacket. The problem is I don't know what to search for to find the kind of jacket I want. It's a sort of harrington style jacket but when I type in harrington I get the usual ones which have tartan inside and the collar isn't the same as what I want. So I guess it's not a harrington I'm looking for. Others that come close are coach jacket, and workers jacket.

 

 

 

I like this Carhartt one but it has print on the back and not really wanting any print or logo if I can avoid it

 

 

 

Anyone able to help me out? Places to look

Are all black saddle brogue oxfords formal enough for say a charcoal gray business suit or a funeral or semi -formal wedding, or does the saddle indicate a level of casualness not normally associated with black oxfords?

post #30978 of 33313
I've always associated saddle shoes with casual. Isn't there always brogueing on saddle shoes?
post #30979 of 33313

Maybe there are "austerity saddle shoes" out there. Haven't seen any however.

Saddle shoes are casual to me too but maybe black ones are a bit more formal.I can't see them work with CBD tho...

All black? Absolutely. The saddle itself isn't what makes the archetypical saddle shoe casual, the contrasting colors do. A single color, polished leather saddle shoe is a pretty minimally decorated shoe, and is thus pretty formal. I have a pair myself- black AE Polos- and I wear them with anything I would wear a black punchcap (ie, the 5th avenue) with. And traditionally, punchcaps are acceptable with morning dress, so you're fine with formal daywear. I wouldn't go with them for eveningwear though- no broguing on anything worn with a tux. For course, Prince William routinely wears full brogues- in the real world, you're fine. And you are most definitely fine with a charcoal suit.

This might be more of a SWD kinda question, but why are light wash currently jeans shunned and considered unfashionable?

I dug out a pair of old straight fit Lee jeans I had,they fit me well and look a bit like this:


Are they ok to wear casually, with chucks,t shirts,henleys,etc or am I veering dangerously into "dadcore" territory? :lol:

I don't care about trends and don't mind being an odd duck, as long as I don't genuinely look bad, and since I have dark and medium wash jeans already, I'm thinking these are great for wearing ultra casually.

Light wash are in bruh, unless they're out again already

Anyone know how to edit saved grail'd filters? I've got some saved but can't figure how how to add and save more filters

Because the winds of fashion blow first in one direction, then in another. Thus do fashion magazines ever have new pictures to print, manufacturers and merchants new sales to ring up, advertising agencies new accounts from which to pay Don Draper and Darrin Stephens their bonuses, and novelty-seekers new clothing to purchase.

A question perhaps better posed over on the Streetwear & Denim side of the room.

To someone who defines "looking good," as being dressed in what is currently fashionable, and "looking bad" as being dressed in what is currently out of fashion, wearing those jeans would leave you looking genuinely bad.

To someone who does not see things in this way, you might not look genuinely bad.

If you think you look good in those jeans, and assuming you don't particularly care what other people think of your taste in denim, then you haven't any problem. 'Course, that assumption's the key, eh?

Hey, they're blue jeans. Pretty much by definition, jeans are for casual wear. At least by traditional menswear standards.

Is it truly necessary to slice "casual" so finely as to have many graduations of denim-based casualness? If so, do "ultra casual" jeans squeeze in between "very casual" jeans and "hyper casual" jeans, or is their rightful place between "extremely casual" jeans and "pajama jeans?"

Look, I'm not trying to bust your chops over this, honest. But when all is said and done, either decide that other people's opinions don't matter to you when it comes to your jeans, and wear what you like. Or decide that you do care about other people's opinions of your jeans' fashionability, and don't wear the jeans in question. (Or, I suppose you could wear them in private, where nobody but your dog can see you in them. So long as you slip Rover the occasional bacon-flavored treat, he'll love you even if you take to wearing light blue, loose-fitting, 2% spandex bib overalls, from Sergio Valente's "Crabwell Corners - 1964" line of Athleisure Denim for the non-Ironic Demi-Casual Prosumer.)

Thanks for the reply, man,it helps. Chops have remained unbusted and jeans will be worn with rebel pride :fonz:

Last time I wore denim overalls was a long time ago, and the next time I do is hopefully far away :lol:

The kind of money and wardrobe you'd have to have to keep up with trends and fashion magazines is scary...

Hi, I'm curious what your opinions are in regard to which Savile Row tailor has a house style most suited to academia for men in their 30s?

I plan on setting aside ~$6,000 USD and purchasing non-bespoke shirts, pants, and knitwear.

Thank you for reading.
post #30986 of 33313
Why are you looking at Savile Row for nonbespoke? Their off the rack is likely to be made elsewhere

Could I get advice on getting a navy suit from SuitSupply?

 

http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits?prefn1=color&prefv1=Blue&prefn2=styleFit&prefv2=Classic-Napoli

 

The $499 is the only true "navy" one. That's fine, but I'm afraid it has too much sheen though. Any input on that, and would any of the Blue Line ones pass for navy?

post #30988 of 33313
That is definitely lighter than navy

WAYWRN = What Are You Wearing Right Now

 

Multiple threads for posting pics of what you are wearing today (or yesterday if you don't keep up :D) relating to several different styles/types (= classic menswear, streetwear, shoes etc.)
