I've got 3 pairs of leather boots I wear with suits. Well one pair is really ankle boot/chukkas I suppose. I doubt anyone ever notices they are boots until I put my feet on the board room table.

I have, knowingly, done all or nearly all of those. I think if you choose the items correctly, dark jeans, soft shoulder jacket, suede shoes, casual (wool/knitted/raw silk) tie, knotted links it can work.

I think that was my exact outfit at the Kimber launch :-) So, obviously, I agree. With the right pieces I believe it works, to me it's about the level of formality being consistent more than anything else.

Was one strap artfully undone as an example of "sprezz", too??

Not only do I have the tshirt...

Anyone else coming to to the "Mr" Melbourne Spring Fashion Week tonight. I'll be there. Going home to get changed before hand though.

I have a pair of Trickers' Stow in snuff suede with Vibram soles. Not really suitable for dressing up, but even with leather soles, I'm not a big fan of boots with suits or dress trousers, moslty because I tend toward more taperd trousers, which can look odd and speedhooks can destroy hems in a matter of hours.

Hate to ask this question for the millionth time, but where's a good place to get a pair of chinos?

My MJ Bale ones fit my like bags. I'm thinking of hitting up target or country road tonight.

Need something that is fitted enough to wear casually but not too wrinkly to be worn with a blazer.

They look good, and you love the attention.

Mate, that question is so ambiguous.

 

Where do I buy brogues? I need a pair that are "casual, but formal", "formally casual".

 

Chinos are a universal pant. You can buy them from basically any menswear store. Sadly, we have no idea what you like, or what you prefer. Most of all, we don't know how much you are willing to spend, but the fact that you mentioned Target at least gives some indication. There is at least 5-10 affiliates on SF that sell chinos. In Australia, I can think of at least 10 stores that sell their own chinos. They'd love to have you rock up in your flash RMWs to try on their chinos.

You obviously liked the look of the MJbale ones you purchased, why not just take them to the tailor to get them tapered up.

Walk into David Jones, then Myer then General Pants.

 

Ask to see all the chinos they have on offer.

 

You'll find something.

Epaulet? Country road make half decent ones. I also have a pair by Marcs (washed finish). As aforementioned, get them tapered if need be. 7.5" would be optimum, also somewhat depending on shoes paired up with.

Does anyone actually own a linen suit? I'm toying with the idea of getting a nice navy linen suit and pairing it with some silk knit ties and nice pair of suede shoes for summer. Primary use would be for work. Thoughts or experiences?
