Yes, too casual.

It all depends on your personality and the occasion:

 

*Why is there so much hate towards rubber soles? I'm not talking about the chunky ones like on skechers shoes, but ones that have the same slim appearance from the side as leather soles. I ask this because I'm in Ohio and our weather is crappy about 75% of the time.

 

Vancouver 80% is rain!

There are very stylized leather shoes with their respective “slim sole” like Prada, there are double layer leather soles in shoes like Canali that gives you better value. A leather sole give you support and breathability but it really depend on the quality of the leather. It’s also considered luxurious!

 

Are there rules for matching socks?

 

Depending on the occasion, if you want to be conservative match it with your trouser, if you wanna be cool get a funky colorful one but always try to match it with colors that your outfit may have like you tie, pocket square, shirt, etc so the level of coordination and detail is higher!

 

Break on your trouser?

It really depends on your personality and occasion, the trend is to barely touch your shoe but it has to be an aggressively narrow leg  and well coordinated with a respective shoe otherwise it does not look appropriate.

The only time untucked shirts look good is when they're short sleeved sport shirts, flat hemmed or short, and being worn with shorts or swim trunks. Preferably at the pool or beach.
And before you call me an out of touch old man or something, I'm in my mid 20's.


oops!  I will disagree a bit here.  I sometimes wear shorts, chinos or jeans with the shirt untucked.  I think that, if the shirt has short tails (i.e.falling just a couple of inches below the waist), then it was meant to be worn either way.

 

and before I get marked as a sloppy young man, I'm in my mid 40s :D  (sloppy old man maybe?)

Is it stupid to wear wingtips brogues in suede leather at high school?

post #16370 of 28327
Depends; I would advise against it if the rest of the ensemble was for example sweatpants and a hoodie.
post #16371 of 28327

What if I wear the shoes with oxford shirt, jeans and chinos? Blue wingtips would be more casual than brown ones, right?

Blue suede shoes are more costume than traditional men's shoes. Brown suede brogues would certainly work with chinos. Pairing them with jeans is probably more of a streetwear thing, but if you're talking about high school, you probably need not be too worried about how closely you're following the "rules" of traditional menswear since you're not in an environment where you're being evaluated on those terms. Based on my recollections of high school, I would imagine that wearing brown suede brogues and properly fitted chinos would put you among the best-dressed students in high school.

I did this. I also wore a tie to school every day and it was a public school with no dress code. It boosted my self-esteem and made me feel better than everyone else but I didn't get any female attention until I was a senior and even then it was pretty terrible.

Question about Shirt Makers with High Collars

 

I'm one of those with a long skinny neck and am told that a dress shirt with a higher collar is better for me. So

 

Any RTW shirt maker recommendations, pros and cons, different price points, where collars are higher? MTM suggestions good too. Not ready to go bespoke.

 

I'd appreciate not just brands and price range, but your experiences (good and bad). Thanks

Borrelli and Finamore have great high collars that are RTW. Be prepared to spend $250+ on them. If you look at Shop The Finest you can get some good deals, like half that sometimes. As far as MTM I am always hesitant to tell anybody to use the online guys. Where are you located? There are a lot of good shirtmakers in large cities.

That shirt is from Uniqlo. There's no telling whether it's still available there given how fast their inventory turns over, though.

It was listed in the caption for that GQ photo. I don't know where you can get a similar shirt, but frankly, it's kind of a novelty pattern so unless you already have a closet full of shirts, it's probably not the most versatile choice.
