The older stuff I have handled has shoulders that are too padded for my liking. They have some new stuff that is supposedly much softer in the shoulder and cut slimmer.

I quite like the fabric from the Canali stuff I have felt, but the shoulders were a deal breaker.

Please help me decide which Chukka to go for.

Between
Loake 1880 £160
467

and Herring £155
350

Very similar shoes, good year welt, brown suede (one is a little darker), and both use rubber dainite sole which I think is nice for Winter.

My only concern is I can't recall who made Herring, probably Loake if I remember correctly? Anyone has experience with 1880 line? It's supposedly the best line they have to offer.
Thx!

what are some of your thoughts on Canali suits?
comparable in quality to other brands like RLBL and Zegna?

Gdot has a ton of Canali stuff IIRC. Maybe shoot him a PM and see his thoughts? I had one jacket in high school. Thought it was teh tits. Looking back, not so much. Same padding/fit issues that Achilles_ outlined.

Last I heard Loake was manufacturing for Herring, don't know if that's still the case. Herring shoes are good quality, especially at that price point.

Although honestly I think I like the colour better on the Loake in the pics you posted.

Thx, agreed I think Herring's colour looks a bit dull. I am going to ask them to send me real pictures of both shoes and see how that works out.

I mean wouldn't this (http://www.pritchards.co.uk/polos-7/polo-ralph-lauren-brown-shirt-c0004-11326-1445_zoom.jpg) look good with black jeans? Or should I wear dark blue with it.

If wearing brown, we can still wear Black oxfords right?

Black leather jacket on brown polo (Like the above) or a brown shirt would look bad or good?

And lastly, Is it a no to wear black waist length jacket and black jeans with a blue or white colored shirt tucked in?

It's not a definite no, but black and brown takes skill. If you have to ask, the answer is no. The combo you posted probably wouldn't work well at all, wear blue jeans and brown shoes with the brown shirt. The black leather jacket will probably still look fine.

As for the last bit, sure.

How do you wear/match tassel loafers? right now my wardrobe only consist of olive, navy and khaki chinos.. can all these colour match with a burgundy colour loafers? can they be worn casually too with basics tee?Thanks..

Hi guys, I'm having trouble deciding between these chukka boots. The first one is "Frank Wright - Smith" and looks more casual and has a low heel, which I like as I am tall. The second one Is "Hudson - Viking" and seems less casual to me.

One issue is that I don't know whether the darker colour on the sole of the first boot makes it look too casual to go with chinos or other trousers?

Also, can boots with this slim a profile really be worn with bootcut jeans? I tried them on today and even with my straight leg Hugo Boss jeans they were made to look more like shoes than boots. Even regular jeans almost look baggy when you wear boots like this.

I much prefer the grain of the leather of the first boot compared to the second one, but it might well be the case that the Viking boot has been put together in a sturdier way and will last a lot longer. I don't even know as I'm used to walking boots with big rubber heels.

They both have a weird thing going on at the back. The first boot has a seam right down the back which can be seen on one of the photos in this link. and is the only thing I don't like about them (it seems to say something about the quality - I think). The second boot has a shiny kind of leather patch material on the back of the boot. Some additional views of the Hudson boot can be seen here.

not sure what is considered old, but mine is just over a year. the shoulders are pretty soft imo.

Hi im new. My question is about jackets/blazers and the "long" vs. "regular" measurements. I want to know what a VERTICAL torso measurement should be to wear "regular" or to wear "long". I am fully aware of the overall height rule, but I think its stupid because it neglects proportion entirely. If I have a short torso but am tall, using that rule it would make my jacket look like a smock. If I have a long torso, but am short, it would also look stupid. So what is the length a TORSO should be (let's assume an even 6' height - right at the border of "regular" and "long", even with the foolish rule), to wear either "long" or "regular", and how should I measure it (what point to what point).  Thanks

If you have a long torso you wear high-rise trousers regardless of height. Then you choose the jacket's length to be proportional to your overall height, not your torso.

All those colors work well with burgundy, but I doubt the tasseled loafers can be worn casually, at least not without a certain amount of attitude. I would generally avoid tassels (suede an area where I might make an exception, but my suede loafers are pennys), but if you already have them, wear them with trousers and chinos.

In the future, stick to shoes without dangly things randomly attached.

I would consider that pretty new. I have heard nothing but good about the newer stuff.

Would a Black leather jacket or any normal black jacket look good with black jeans and black oxfords, if wearing a different colored shirt? Could be Grey or Blue.

Would a leather jacket look good with brown shirt, blue jeans and black oxfords or any black shoes?

 

 

And I have been hearing that you should wear clothes that enhance your eyes and your skin tone. I have a  mixture of tan-ish, a little wheat-ish and slightly red complexion. http://p.imgci.com/db/PICTURES/CMS/128400/128472.1.jpg Though my hair is jet black and my eyes are actually black with very little brown which is only visible in bright light falling on my eyes and if noticed properly. Can hardly be called dark brown. What colors should suit me? (Would the colors stated above would?)
