Disagree, unless it's a wedding, I think he won't burst into flames wearing monks. It's not like he's going to a conservative business meeting. People wear t-shirts and shorts to church nowadays.

Had the Monks on ready to walk out the door, then I chickened out and wore Park Aves. :slayer:

Exactly what I was gonna say. The sole is really tough.

So I bought a pair of older 'Lexington' cap-toe bluchers for the express purpose of experimentation. 

 

I plan to:

 

1. Sand down sole edges and refinish antiqued

2. Burnishing the heel and toe areas

 

My question is, what other things should I consider? Remember, these aren't shoes I wear and really don't ever have to be, so nothing is off the table.

The picture of the pair you posted looks too dark. Classic pairing is either:

- Tropical wool, mid-light grey
- Dress chinos
- Wool flannel (also mid-light grey)

Luxire has choices in all the above for under $200 and you can tweak the fit and styling to your preferences. Not such a good option if you don't have a pair of well-fitting pants you can take base measurements off though.

thank you! I definitely have grey trousers covered, hate to do another pair of cotton/ chino instead of wool, but maybe that's the only option for the tan/khaki family of pants for a blue blazer.
post #31506 of 33197

My chinos are probably some of my least favored trousers. I just kinda wear them when I don't care to be well dressed and expect they might get dirty so I can just throw it into the washing machine. Just seems like in most situations either linen or fresco would do better. Moleskin/Corduroy are fine of course.

 

I mean I will agree that something like white chinos with a blazer does something that white linen or white fresco doesn't quite do, it's just relaxed enough while still being sharp, but honestly for the most part I just think wool/linen are better.

Does anyone have experience with Bottega Veneta suit? I got some great offer on them but still deciding whether they should be kop or not. Since they was belong to Gucci group, I'd expect BV tailoring will be made by Zegna and be on par with mainline Zegna given MSRP (>$2.5k). Could anyone confirm this? Also, what is the silhouette of their suit in general?

Thanks in advance!

If those were my experimental shoes, I'd throw in a dye job as well. A nice mid-brown with subtle burnishing should yield rather nice results!

There used to be a Style Forum member I believe they sold ties and trousers that went for around $300 to $400. Their main page had a gentleman holding wine I believe? I forgot the name of the company? Any idea? I can't seem to find them on the vendor page. They were located in New York.

How long before you have your shoes resoled again?

I have a pair of AE loafers and wore them once a week from around Feb-May and they need resoling :/ 
This seems to be the only pair that has worn out unexpectedly fast...

I have Topys on most of my shoes. I'm not sure if I have ever had a Topy redone. Believe that is mostly due to my rotation of shoes though and can't be solely attributed to the durability of the Topy. I have not any of my Goodyear welted shoes resoled yet either since I started buying them 4-5 years ago. I have had my non-welted shoes resoled though.

Is the shirt and tie too much blue?
post #31514 of 33197

No, but not enough jacket. :hide::)

I'm wearing a peacoat over this, not a full suit. My work is relatively informal and I already feel overdressed with a tie haha! The peacoat is black.
