Would you ever show ankle at a wedding? My conservative brother says it would be too distracting (and thus take attention away from the groom), but I think these "smart fit" cropped pants look so slick:

Also, if you would wear these at a wedding, what shoes would you rock them with?

Your brother's right.

If you want to wear weird clothes that'll draw attention to you, go have your own wedding.

What about wearing those pants with some eccentric or colorful socks? They would be matching color to my date.

The question to ask yourself is how high the flood waters are going to be at that wedding or any place you would wear those.  If the water hasn't come up past the vamp of your shoes, you're best off not wearing those.

EDIT: actually they're polyester too so you're even more better off not wearing them ever

Do not wear them,
regardless of sock.
Do not wear them;
they do not rock.
I do not like them here or there.
And as for a wedding - definitely do not wear.

Wearing them to a wedding is an idea I hate,
even if your socks match the color worn by your date.
Listen to your brother's rants
and do not wear those awful pants.

Hello, everyone. I recently purchased this pair of shoes, and I'm wondering which Saphir cream and wax color(s) I should use for these. Due to the dual-colored nature of the shoes, I'm not sure which would be best. The last photo is a (very) slightly more accurate depiction of the color.

 

I greatly appreciate your advice.

If you're worried about making them darker / lighter, you can always just use a neutral cream / wax.

Unless you have $$$ to drop on a new coat a few years later, it seems unwise to purchase something that short. Plus, the button stance is too high because of the previous issue.

 

I would take Spurious example any day, shorten it 1.25"(slightly higher than the tip of his thumb), and lower the stance. Better than the SS example.

Your position seems predicated on assumptions about the relative longevity and "datedness" of these two styles that I sure as heck don't agree with, so let's leave it at that.

That's a big part of what "classic" means. Classic menswear is menswear of a style which has proven itself over time.

Some overly short, overly close-fitting, "fashionable" suits and jackets have useable lifespans so ephemeral as to practically make a mayfly's existence seem unending by comparison.

I blame it all on the lime green polyester leisure suit. Unattractive clothing, unappealing art, global warming, the decline in the quality of mass market chocolate, Windows 8, GM recalling 625 thousand cars for having radios that explode when tuned to NPR, the approaching fleet of alien space lizards who intend to conquer the human race but news of which the CIA is currently covering up, etc. - all the fault of the lime green polyester leisure suit. A clothing item which really, really failed to stand the test of time.

12345Michael54321's response is a bit more extreme than mine, but his perspective is perfect. I know there are other more senior members that hold the same perspectives on short, over-ly suppressed coats.

Thank you!

Who's the maker of the following shoe?
post #28245 of 28869

The tree and thinness of the sole look like Carmina, although I am not familiar with that model

 

Note - I am a Carmina fan, not knocking the sole.... the nails in the toe are great for people like me who are hard on toes.
