    I doubt that girl goes to Tech, although now that I am back for grad school I am impressed by the girls on campus. I think it just has to do with most people sticking their heads in a book (or computer) and not venturing out.

    I like some of his shoes, but I am not a fan of crepe soles. I have some sneakers he did with Pro-Keds that I like and get compliments on.

    Don't forget your shearling toggle pea coat if it's cold outside. Get a Black Watch one if you can.

    Man, I feel like this thread should get back to hating on McNairy. Honestly, everything about that guy irks me. He is bombing WWM. His own line is derivative of most things #menswear. He just style jacks from every blog out there and then the bloggers end up worshiping him b/c they feel validated for their opinions (many of which are genuinely stupid and should be on the cutting room floor). It's this terrible feedback loop. FWIW, I like a lot of bloggers, #menswear, street style, etc., but this whole "McNasty" fawning has got to stop. McNasty is an appropriate description of most of his designs because they are nasty (as in awful and nausea inducing, not nasty as in cool). His "tongue in cheek" attempts at humor are anything but. His sense of humor or that of his design team is clearly childish ("F* Off" pocket squares). His own style of dress is objectively not good. The whole "Manifest Destiny" shirt shows how out of touch with reality he is and a complete lack of tact. He is just a bald old man desperately trying to cling to his youth and the #menswear community is egging him on.

    I've met him a couple of times, and he's always seemed distant and cold to me, but I've heard that he warms up. I don't think that he has talent like Daiki Suzuki has, and I definitely think that his version of WWM is not as interesting as Daiki's. I'm not a fan of the double monks, and find them a bit unbalanced (yes, that may have been intentional, but I don't really hate them either. I don't know who it was that criticized the crepe sole, but it's just a Sanders make. Looks pretty much like every other natual crepe sole out there. I've seen his line many times, and it's always left me lukewarm.

    Those shoes do look interesting. Not CBD or conventional but interesting. Cole Hann is filing similar colored soles last year and even AE are experimenting colorful combinations.

    Fashion shoes.

    I like the 2-tone long wing brogue Vibram-soled collection, both suede and calf skin.
