In anything other than light drizzle or flurries I would wear real boots, and change into my shoes on arrival.

Relatedly I'm still looking for nice Wellingtons since I can't shake the idea that Hunters are only for girls.

If you insist on the shoes being formal, you're better off trying to get some boots on an more elegant last with at least a dainite sole - commando sole would be better.

They are both quite nice, thank you.

2. What are my shirt options with this in terms of pattern matching. Today I'm wearing a light blue herringbone. Could I do a bengal stripe? A gingham? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


1. I would call that multistripe or multi-pinstripe
2. Bengal stripe is probably OK. I wouldn't wear gingham just because gingham is a casual pattern, and the suit is businessy.

What does the SF community think of Charles Tyrwhitt? Specifically their tuxedoes...

Is there a lighter weight wool for pants that have texture and visual interest that I could wear in a business casual environment?

I have a heavy herringbone pair and a tweed pair which I love but I live in a mild climate so I can't wear them enough. I got a lighter weight pair of flannel and they are nice but worsted and more refined than I want usually.

How about a open tropical weave or maybe light weight twill? Are these very refined looking or textured?

Lighter than the lighter weights of flannel?

 

The iGent answer is fresco.

I might be mistaken but the lighter weights of flannel are worsted. They are very nice still this makes them more dressy looking and smoother. My office is really casual and the textured winter pants I have are perfect.

Is fresco a weave that is textured?

this might be new thread material but going for quick answers first (happy to repost if it's better elsewhere). long-time SF lurker but reaching out in a quasi-professional capacity looking for advice/recommendations.

 

i'm looking for SF member(s) to help with curation of products on specific themes. if you (or someone you know from inside/outside the SF community) fits the bill and consider yourself to have in-depth knowledge in any of the categories below, please PM me. 

 

- denims

- hoodies

- casual sports jackets

 

btw -- in-depth means that you keep a close eye on who is releasing new lines, you understand apparel production (garment structure, material selection, and know why something is outstanding), as well as having a good idea for the subjective part (you have an eye). 

 

thanks in advance.

What lacing patterns do you guys use?

Just polishing a bunch of shoes, and wondering if I should relace differently.

Either criss-cross or straight bar lacing, with the choice dependent on factors like the formality of the shoes (the more formal the shoe, the more I prefer straight bar lacing) and the number of eyelet pairs (even vs. odd is relevant in straight bar lacing, although there are ways around the issue).

Ian's Shoelace Site has pretty much all the information anyone needs to know (and then some) about lacing shoes.
