Definitely a change from some of my blues. :P


 




That looks really great, Stebbin. I've had two suits made by Amy Yang at Shanghai C&G. I can highly recommend them.

Would this be an appropriate fit for a pair of chinos on formal occasions? or will it look like I've bought something from jayjays?

Thanks.

Hi Oli, for my part, chinos and jeans should have a quite different fit.

What brand are the chinos, and do you wear them with a crease or not? Either way, iron them how you would wear them, and have them pinned up by the seamstress (or better, an actual tailor). Make sure you move around plenty, as there is a risk you will make them too tight by going for a for that works when you're standing rigid, not walking or sitting.

If you like the length and cuff width of your 501s, that could be taken into account as a vague guide, but the idea of copying sounds risky to me.

I have just transacted my first SF purchase. Thanks StreetMinimal.
2 x Herring shoes at a great price. The 7.5 a perfect fit, the 7 needs breaking in.

I'm even wearing the brogues in the office - yet noone has commented.
What am I doing wrong?

Cheers

BB have a slim fit chino and I think J Crew do as well, they also vanity size so be careful if and or when you ever order a pair. Traditionally chinos are based on military trousers, Bill's use a US Army patten from WW2 as the template for their Khaki trousers. So they are specifically designed as slim or is it skinny fit trousers.

Also if you want to see who the blue blazer white shirt rep tie chino look works just watch an episode of the West Wing, it shows up their quite often.

Anybody bought any of the Levis vintage line jeans? Wonder how they compare to APC and other brands.

you will be fine, no one in your office would know even if it is inappropriate. But Brogues are perfectly fine for office wear.

Do you want people to comment?

I could be wrong, but I suspect that Herringbone Pete was hoping that people would be impressed by his lovely, new shoes and that he'd receive some compliments.

Unfortunately, (in my experience, at least) it's not common to be complimented on shoes. I'm occasionally complimented on shirts and ties, rarely complimented on suits or jackets, and almost never complimented on shoes. People occasionally notice when I wear my side-buckle monks or double monks, as they look different, but other than that I receive almost no comments on shoes.

I suspect that this is for two reasons: 1) Most men nowadays know virtually nothing about good shoes; and 2) Most women know virtually nothing about men's shoes. As a result, neither male nor female colleagues pay much attention to the shoes that men in the office wear.

Pete - for what it's worth - congrats on your new shoes, and I'm sure that they look very nice!

Sophie has conceded. Will not ask for recount.
