    Absolutely!

    My wife used to give me a great deal of grief because I would always wear sneakers or lace-up boots in Japan, and I always tightly lace my sneakers so would undo them when we arrived and lace them up again when we left, which meant that everyone else was standing up waiting around for me, whilst I was bending down tying up my shoes!

    Now I wear driving mocs or boat shoes much of the time that we're there, so she's much happier now.

    I'm curious as to why you would want your odd trousers to look like part of a suit? Of all my odd trous, I would say a minority would actually be plausible as a full suit. Likewise most of my odd jackets.

    As for which colour you should go for, be wary of lighter blues if you intend to pair with a grey jacket. Often the contrast isn't quite strong enough unless it's a really light grey.

    What about all the Japanese business men in their lace up C and Js, Churches or the like. Do they just have loose laces, or crushed heels?

    I'm selling 3 pairs of Woodlore Epic Twin Tube Shoe Trees, labeled size S.

    Here's the listing on the marketplace.

    Bought them on amazon, but they're too small for my shoes and I'm trying to pass them on to recoup some of the costs.

    Anyone interested?

    I don't want them to look like part of a suit as such - essentially they are for Fridays, or days when we are not in Court. But they need to be formal enough to wear in Court under robes if required (sometimes get pulled in at short notice). Navy plain pressed chinos can pull this off. Tan can't, really.

    So they need to be on the more formal side of casual.

    Hence I think I need a true/midnight navy, rather than more of a royal blue like the top.

    I have never been a fan of Blunnies not even Australian anymore. Always preferred Rossi work boots. When I was a Chef and working in mental health it was them and Doc's as they were tax deductible, non slip soles. Still have a pair of Rossi for gardening work.

    My hunt for a flannel suit took me to Peter Jackson's today. Lots of fantastic flannels. A couple of chalkstripe charcoal, a solid medium grey and a nice charcoal POW check with subtle purple windowpane.

    None of them fit me though.

    Super 110's wool, half canvassed. $400.

    Been wearing black RMs all day.

    No tag issues.

    Might be the weight of the 5cm cuffs (-:
