post #9271 of 29409

Ello, first post, quick question:

 

Saw some fake Clarks DBs on the Old Navy site for only $50:

They come in this color (almost khaki in person) and a dark brown.

Think they are a good buy?  And if so, what color/kind of pants go with which color?

 

Thanks,

 

Ryan

2 Questions: What are your thoughts on these, mostly with jeans.

Also, can either be dressed up, with a suit perhaps?

How do you call those loafers?

[Suede] Tassel Loafers
post #9275 of 29409
Until recently, boots were worn with suits, though many would suggest that boots aren't formal enough these days to wear with a suit, apart from tweeds, etc. Myself, I pair boots with suits all the time, mainly jods/chelseas which have a clean toe line, and look identical to shoes when standing, etc. (though must be cognizant when it comes to chelseas of the elasticized sides i.e. when sitting, with jods instead having a buckle closure so as to not be all that different from i.e. monks, making it appropriate--in my humble op--to wear such boots on occasions where, if instead, one could wear monks). That said, probably wouldn't wear boots to i.e., a client meeting, before an audience with a judge/at court, etc., but no problem whatsoever if just a routine day at the office/casual Friday, etc., or of course in harsh weather conditions wink.gif

To each their own.

As to the Brogues, a classic look with jeans and/or tweeds, with a double sole meant for the country, yes? I like them very much, and have something quite similar (for casual, country use, or just kicking around the city, etc.); as to the "glens", I'm not a huge fan of the canvas/leather look myself, but sure, if you like them, why not -- would seemingly pair quite nicely with jeans, I should think, but can't really see them with a suit, at all, regardless of the weather conditions. Hope this helps, and wear them in good health smile.gif

I'm a size UK7 on the EG 888 last, does that mean 40.5 for the Vass F?

Thanks for the advice mate. My predicament is as follows: I need a boot I can wear casually. I tend to dress on a more aggressive side (my old punk roots still show through, though the mohawk has been tamed). So the black works well for me. HOWEVER, I still need the boot to be presentable in an office environment. Right now I don't work in one, but I plan on earning my way in soon. So, with everything considered: I want a boot that can be worn in a creative office environment, that I can wear with jeans and my old patched jacket as well. If I settle on the Lewis, perhaps I should decide to go with brown?

I can't speak for the fit of Vass F specifically but I wear a UK7 and any European shoes I've bought in 40.5 fit me.

Can anybody tell me who makes this shoe?

Anyone know where i can buy a money clip with a chain on it to attach on the trousers?

Sorry about the novice question...I'm at SW&D 95% of the time -
I found a suit jacket that is perfect in the sleeves (length), length, and chest...but the area where my shoulder and arm intersect (would this be a shoulder issue?) is way too tight. Is this something that I can get altered?

Quick question - I want a slim-fitting linen suit for a wedding in a month (I'm 6'3 195lbs; 43" chest, 35.5" waist). What is a good brand for fairly cheap, and where's a good place to get it?

Probably not. It's a lot easier to make things smaller than it is to make things larger, and shoulders are always tricky (and expensive). Though hold off, perhaps post a photo here. It might be fine, but you might not be used to the feel. Or it could be too tight, and you need to find another jacket.

Don't know about Jeans. The Glenn's two-leather style rules it out for wear with a suit. The Lewis might be able to get away with a suit, but not to a serious business meeting.

Consider a Chukka boot in burgundy/cordovan.

I own a pair and am comfortable wearing them with a suit on hard weather days.

The bass ones are a perfectly fine shoe, and rather iconic. If I'm not mistaken, Bass came up with 'em. The lasts and styling may be different, so take your pick there.

The bass ones do have synthetic liners and whatnot, so if the J&M is better in that regard, it might be worth the extra cash. I don't know the details on the J&M version though.

first time posting, can someone give me some advice on fit, shoes, changes etc.


Fit is uninspiring, but decent, and you need actual dress shoes. Those look like casual driver mocs or whatnot, and the square toe should be avoided. You need a black captoe or the like.
