    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Only joking; the blade on the TDI is too short for my liking.

    Much prefer my Fairbairn Sykes.

    Joking again; who needs a weapon when young uns simply collapse in abject horror when they behold my dad jacket and tucked in shirt?

    We've discussed relevance and appropriateness before many times. Is it really that hard to believe for some professional people, even ones that can wear denim to work (like me at times) wearing an un-tucked shirt just isn't on in the workplace. I still wear plenty of un-tucked shirts with denim on the weekends where I'd feel just as strange being tucked.

    I don't know what your problem is with indigo jeans - the original Levis work jeans came in indigo. Black is for Peter Andre fans.

    His belt is pimp too - RM Williams 1.5" 3 piece solid hide belt if I'm correct.

    Had a small car accident this afternoon.

    First thought that ran through my mind as it happened

    "Oh fuck I hope I'll have enough money left over to cop those Alden's when DM gets them in this month."


    Thankfully don't have to pay anything.

    Black jeans would have looked even more awful because of the clash with the brown leather jacket (in all its awkward glory)

    Shirts tucked in to jeans is only ever seen by the enormous dorks in "MC casual: WAYWRN"

    Please for the sake of your children, just dont do it

    Edit: possibly can be pulled off by very trendy young people with lots of swag. Unlikely to be you

    I actually agree with you Matt. I think a shorter 'fashion' shirt worn untucked would look good with a leather jacket. But part of my vibe here is deliberately that dorky, awkward aesthetic that is dadcore. I want to alienate young hip guys like you. I sure as hell can't dress as trendy as you do, and I wouldn't want to try. But OTOH some days I couldn't be fucked wearing a blazer and tie either.

    Don't think this is the forum section for you skeen. I'd suggest you join the kids over at SW&D where you can un-tuck, stack your denim and discuss your dislike of the daggy old blokes at CM.

    Pop - You get it. This is great. :D

    Skeen black and brown are fine together (obviously shade dependant) are you actually a moran?

    Oli - indigo jeans work a lot of the time and I didn't even attack them, really. Its just that black almost always looks better. Indigo is like the navy odd trouser of the denim world (there's a reason most jeans are meant to fade quickly ;)).

    Black is the ultimate colour for almost everything though.

    While I get this I assumed that if a leather jacket and jeans were OK then an untucked shirt wouldn't matter. Maybe that's the wrong assumprion.

    what's wrong with the 2nd look? Nice and clean look, I actually prefer that to the first pic.

    Please post a photo of a brown leather jacket with black pants that you think looks good

    (include shoes for bonus points)

    This discussion brings me to another point. What about wool trousers, with a less formal weave such as Fresco, paired a reasonably fitted and quality polo shirt? I've found winter wool trousers go fine with long sleeve knitted cotton tops, so what about the shirt sleeve version for summer? Do you think the level of formality of the trousers clashes with the polo (more so than the textures), or that it looks like you're about to play golf?

    Skeen, you're talking to the wrong crowd. Square bottom untucked? It looks unkempt and hardly professional. I almost always tuck mine in, but I also wear an odd jacket. Sorry. No soup for you.

    And now, a short break from the Dad Wars...

    C&J Islay brogue boots.

    What do you guys think? Should be pretty versatile with casual or smart casual outfits.

    Why not get some RMWs?

    I'd probably go Red Wings over them too.

    The Alfred Sargent Hannover is lovely as well, good competition for the Islay I think. Pediwear have free lasted trees for the 87 last. I never thought I'd say this, but I prefer the RMWs Chelsea's after going around town and trying different boot styles on.

    They sure are. Have looked longingly at them for some time.
