    What makes the fabric casual?

    I think the fabric is way too loud for a business shirt.

    You can wear them together, they're close enough.

    Dark colour, busy patten, large-scale window-pane. All of these things are casual features.

    I ran into some today at The Rack... have to say I wasn't impressed even at $40. Boxy cut, shitty fabric, lame buttons embossed with "Michael Kors" and worst of all Made In China! :uhoh:

    There is another forum called "Streetwear and Denim" that might be more suitable to your tastes, based on the links. But anyway those shoes and jeans are pretty simple so they should go together fine.

    Hi, new member here. I'm looking for some shoes. I will wear these almost every day, so they need to be very well made and comfortable—mostly just not too stiff so there is no painful pinching when the foot bends. This almost never happens to me, but I can't find fault in the shoes this man is wearing, at least for my intentions—not bulky, not too shiny, supple…

    It appears they may have some patterned perforations, which I am indifferent to. If anyone could help me locate these or something with similar characteristics, I would be most grateful. Budget is somewhat constrained, but I am more worried about quality than saving money.

    Another quick question: is there some consensus on what constitutes a good wool sock, and who makes the best reasonably priced ones?

    Additionally, I prefer that the upper a single piece, as in the photo. Thanks!

    Where can I find small-sized Panterella socks? I'm pretty sure they exist.

    When it comes to suits (and to a significant, but not universal extent, even when it doesn't come to suits) I prefer the look of cuffs. And at least in theory the weight of the cuff may help the pants hang a little better. If the pants are pleated, I'd very strongly prefer cuffs. If plain front, I simply strongly prefer cuffs.

    But what you're really asking is "Do you like cuffs?" There are folks who do, and others who don't. So just decide for yourself which look you prefer, and then go with that.

    If you want to read more about "To cuff or not to cuff," a Google search on "should cuff pants site:www.styleforum.net" will likely turn up dozens of threads, many of them addressing your precise question.

    [​IMG]thoughts on these jcrews on mr porter? 225 for a first pair of brogues to see if I like them. Little worried that the sole is chunky. Thanks.

    Not that similar to the ones in your picture, but have you looked at suede double monks? (I personally think they look amazing incorporated into a fitting outfit[​IMG])
    they certainly aren't bulky, not shiny either, and well, they do look supple
    And when it comes to shoes, it's worth splurging out on a pair
