post #18646 of 28787

Hi Guys,

 

I'll be going to the University of Virginia in January for a student exchange program. I'm coming from a tropical country, so I have no experience with living with snow whatsoever.

 

I will be bringing a few pairs of leather soled shoes over. Is it advisable to topy/vibram them to avoid slipping all over the place?

post #18647 of 28787

I know square shoes are a no no, but i am curious about these cole haans, they taper down to be skinny but they aren't rounded, they have a squareish finish at the end. Are these acceptable?

I'm 6'3 170, and have tons of problems finding clothes that I like the fit/look of.

Why do some thermals/t shirts give me the appearance of man boobs, even though I have none? Not every shirt, just every now and then I'll try something on, and boom.

What kind of boxers are best for wearing under skinnier clothes? I recently picked up some Levis 508s (tapered) and I'm still always struggling with my boxer briefs rolling up on the leg and causing discomfort. And when I wear skinny chinos (not too skinny, they fit fine in the waist) some of them still show a dreaded outline even though there's plenty of loose fabric. I'm thinking I need something that keeps me held in better. Any help appreciated. I really think it's a problem with the underwear, since I'm having problems even when wearing 508s. Same problem with my APC NS.

Finally, in the levi's 508's I got, I tend to roll up the bottoms once for a nicer look. However, the jeans don't seem to want to stay rolled and 5 minutes later the small cuff I created in the pants has gotten bigger. Is this just due to cheap denim? Anything I can do to keep a cuff in place without pinrolling?

Yes that shape is acceptable, but to be honest if you paid over $100 for those cole haan's they aren't worth it.

if it makes you look like you have man boobs, either be honest and do a few more push ups, (no shame bro) or just don't wear those brands. that's pretty self explanatory.

 

underwear under skinny clothes, if you don't want to go full briefs (who does) i would suggest the "trunks" style, it's a bit of a shorter leg and trimmer cut. I recently was turned onto "bottoms out" which you can get via amazon for about $6 a pair. can't go wrong there. 

 

if you want the cuff to stay where it is, you can iron it there. not crazy but a little ironing will keep it in place.

You're going to be dealing with very little snow. It's Virginia.

the construction of a cole haan shoe as well as the quality of the leather really is sub par. For a bargain, go meermin (see the thread here on SF) or for a step up go carmina or crockett & jones.

I completely agree with Claghorn. 0.25 to 0.5 inches is just fine. You want it to show just a little bit. With French cuffs, probably closer to 0.5 inches. As you want to at least partially show the cufflinks, if not the full thing!
post #18655 of 28787

I recently picked up two suits at an estate sale and have a couple of quick questions...

 

I have not seen a Brioni Label designed like the one on this suit, marked 100% Wool, Made in Italy.  Is anyone familiar with this label, authenticity, age, etc?  

 

Second is from the same lot, it is also marked Made in Italy.  I have seen the label before, but what is the brand called?  

 

Suggestions for auction titles?

No mang... you don't want your cuff links dangling out...that could look ridiculous. You want it to show discreetly in your movements. Agree that 0.25-.5'' sounds good.

No doubt about this; socks go with shoes. They may be the same colour or a toning colour but always be guided by the shoes, not the trousers.

I would disagree with this. So there is some doubt. biggrin.gif

Nope. Its supposed to lengthen the leg, not the shoe.

can someone recommend a nice boot like this Cole Haan for the winter? Preferably in a medium brown.
