    I to think some sneakers are ok. Like today I found some of those harris tweed nike hightops from I think like 2004. There a green hightop. I would rock them with selvedge jeans unfortunately there a 9.5 but I think double 00 is correct I think that's what I was looking for. Tapper not rolled and as far as no socks haven't tried it the look is to euro for me I think.

    Found a pair in purple a couple weeks back. Such awesome shoes.

    I don't like the dress shoes with jeans look. I think it clashes most of the time. I wear my CP's and Lanvin's with jeans all the time, though. Don't know what @double00 is talking about :p

    Are you guys all talking about basketball shoes or ANY sneaker?

    double00 - are you saying that like Common Projects with denim is a no-go in your book? Because that's insane.

    I stick with a few sneakers and desert boots/chukkas. Rarely branch out!

    It's always going to be problematic to speak in absolutes regarding fashion. It all depends on context and what idiom you're trying to "speak" in.

    Better to be a descriptivist than a prescriptivist, and study and enjoy the variety of modes of expression. Which is why dishing out do's and dont's is mostly dumb (even though I still fall into it sometimes, because pedantry) without knowing the intent. If you know the intent, or can deduce it with decent confidence from contextual clues, then you can objectively analyze if it's being fulfilled (and I think that discussion is healthy and fun to engage in) but otherwise it's mostly subjective.

    Which is a long way of saying I'll shut up now :)

    Agreed. There are guidelines, not rules.

    If I want to wear a coogi sweater with denim and high tops, I'm going to.






    I also really liked 1996. Not sure if relevant.

    what @ChetB said.

    our opinions on personal style are obviously subjective - even if offered as absolutes, they're only personal opinions after all

    and he's right, it's usually legible as such (unless of course the reader is a pedant)

    so, no, i'm not gonna preface every post with "imho..." and i'll trust folks to read it how they will, without apology

    There was some discussion on gloves last week and wanted say something about these if anybody is still looking. I went looking for some after that and found these from allen edmonds. There harris tweed and for $47 there pretty nice and thick. Free shipping as I picked up a new pair of slippers as well.

    well, i own a pair of running shoes and i use those for running. otherwise i don't own any sneakers! is that weird? lol

    and i've been called crazy before but in truth i think there are lots of ways to wear pants and shoes together, including yes sneakers and jeans. i like skate shoes but i haven't seen anything interesting in some time and i haven't been looking all that hard. hey if boat shoes count as sneakers then i have some serious soul-searching to do...
