    Summer is coming and I need a pair of summer shoes. What do you guys think about car shoes, when you use it as everyday shoe and not driving?

    What do you guys think about these shoes? They cost £60, and are made in the same factories as Loake.

    The second boat shoe looking type one looks good. Driving loafers don't last very long because they're not meant to be used for everyday walking. If you don't mind answering, what's the site?

    What other shoes (except for boat shoes) are the options for everyday walking?

    I really like the drivers. I know drivers aren't meant for everyday walking but I don't care, I love them. Any would be decent on a 17 year old. Don't limit how you dress because of age.


    Now for me, I just purchased a couple jackets from Uniqlo including this navy blue houndstooth.

    What color shirt should I be wearing with this? I think a light pink would be really nice but need to add one to my wardrobe... Think it would be great with a pair of my natural/light beige colored linen trousers.... Just at a bit of a loss as far as shirting. May be important to ad that the jacket I purchased seems to have more white than in the factory picture....

    This is not necessarily the right place for this, but I am looking to get into straight razor shaving and was wondering what a good place to start was?

    Google is of no real help, since I have no idea to distinguish between noise and truth.

    It's not like the question is particularly offensive or anything, but yeah, the "Ask A Question, Get An Answer" thread here at SF isn't the ideal place for it. Try the forums at http://badgerandblade.com/

    Just got a pair of the Lands End Canvas moc toe espresso brown boot. VERY dark brown. I am not sure how to match it with jeans, and shirt color. I love wearing boots like this but need some advice on colors that will match it. Already have a nice belt to go with. Any help is greatly appreciated! Can these be work with a T-shirt? Thanks

    I know that it's probably not the best place to ask the question, but I'll give a short question as an answer. Why? I know of some that prefer this method, but most cite the ritual of doing it as the most enjoyable aspect. The equipment and the process are fun in theory, but are a hassle in everyday life. There are plenty of people that enjoy the hobby as much as the necessity (see 12345Michael's link), but I've never been able to fully embrace it due to the time and skills it takes to keep up with it, let alone some of the expense.

    If you're looking for an alternative to disposable razors, try out a safety razor. It's not complicated to learn, you have a wide array of luxury tools to purchase and you have inexpensive blades to swap in your expensive shaver.

    I've personally found it to irritate my skin less and to get a closer shave as I can control the angles better. Just my .02.
