    M, is that a sweatshirt or a sweater?

    Sweatshirt.

    By the same measure, $800 pants should not be used to play dress-down.

    Uhh, why not?

    Please.

    Wait, so you do think that wearing a tie and pocket square automatically make a person better dressed? If that it is the common sentiment around here, it sheds a lot of light.

    Except you're doing it wrong. There's nothing stylish about that outfit.

    Clearly we disagree.

    So what you are saying is a man shouldn't bother wearing a SC or PS if it doesnt fit perfectly and isn't expertly matched? How about being dressed appropriate? That has no weight? Sometimes I feel ones effort regardless of the execution is worth a lot more than one just wearing a sweatshirt because it fits better or the color constrasts with the sweatpants better.

    The price has nothing to do with it. It's the style of pants. I would never wear pleated flannel pants with a sweatshirt. However, I'm sure Ambrosi makes some $800 cords, moleskins, etc. that I would wear with a sweatshirt.

    Yeah, but then you'd have to have more than one style of pant and that would be [​IMG]

    I think if the sweatshirt were a fitted hoody type of sweatshirt and if he swapped the longwings for some monochrome new balance sneakers or similar, I'd wear it.

    Right - it is a question of aesthetics!

    Even some suede chukkas - those longwings kill it more than that sweatshirt. Though a nice, brown sweatshirt without the writing would be better too.

    See, if they were flat fronts and he wore some white Common Projects with it, it could work. Or even some suede chukkas.

    It's the pleats that throw everything off.

    I'm not really bothered by the pleats like you guys are. Not sure how you can have pents without pleats [​IMG]

    I think the Ambrosi/Napoli default style is flat front.

    but then they would just be office pants, and how silly would he look at a picnic in the park wearing office pants.

    Uhh, why not?

    Because the thought you've put into the details on these pants is reflected in how formal they are. Price is a proxy for that attention to detail.

    Wait, so you do think that wearing a tie and pocket square automatically make a person better dressed? If that it is the common sentiment around here, it sheds a lot of light.

    You've so deliberately and successfully dressed down that anyone putting a PS and tie on is categorically better dressed. OK, perhaps not mt_spiffy's tie-as-PS, or moo's sock-as-PS, but anyone else. Even a Macy's black suit, satin-solid-tie-with-matching-PS is better than this.
