I am curently updating my wardrobe. I have some question which I hope you can all answear.

I have bought a brown belt. When I ware jeans, do I need to ware brown dress/casual shoes?

I have t-shirts with funky football logos such as amsterdam, or anthing you would see at american eagle. Should I tuck in my shirt or should I ware it loose and over my belt buckle when I ware jeans?

When I ware a shirt with a floral print and it is collard and black, can I ware a bandana and tie around my neck as a tie?

Should I ware my nice pair of jeans with dress shoes only or could I ware sneekers.

When I ware painters pants, whats the best shoe, dress or sneekers?

When I have a blazer on can I get away with a long sleved dress shirt with no tie worn over the belt or should I tuck in?

Thanks for any insight.

Yes, I am certain that you should always match your belt to your shoes when wearing brown or black.

I would leave it untucked, unless you are trying to show off your belt buckle, in which case I would just wear a shirt that is short enough to see the buckle without tucking it in.

I won't stop you, but I won't recommend it either
Should I ware my nice pair of jeans with dress shoes only or could I ware sneekers.
You can wear nice jeans with dress shoes undoubtedly, and this look is coming in. However, I wouldn't wear loafers with jeans. I personally don't like the look of having dress shoes with jeans and a "vintage" t-shirt, but it seems to be acceptable around campus. Watch me roll my eyes as I say this.
When I ware painters pants, whats the best shoe, dress or sneekers?
I don't know what painters pants are.
When I have a blazer on can I get away with a long sleved dress shirt with no tie worn over the belt or should I tuck in?
Absolutely. Just make sure that the shirt doesn't look like crap when it's untucked. Shirts are made to be tucked in or left out, really not both, but some dress shirts are cut in such a way that they still look alright untucked. Use your own judgement on this one. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Maybe you're young. Maybe your first language is not English. But your spelling is absolutely appalling.

Tuck in your shirt. Untucked shirts look sloppy, and people wont take you seriously, esp if you are young.

PS Never take fashion tips from Carson on Queer Eye.

I have bought a brown belt. When I ware jeans, do I need to ware brown dress/casual shoes?

If you are wearing brown shoes, wear the brown belt. You can also just wear some retro trainers with your jeans, and in that case the belt isn't important. Even if you wear black shoes with your jeans, its fine to wear a brown belt if your shirt is untucked (nobody is going to see it). Just make sure that your shoes aren't too dressy.

I have t-shirts with funky football logos such as amsterdam, or anthing you would see at american eagle. Should I tuck in my shirt or should I ware it loose and over my belt buckle when I ware jeans?

Usually I say don't tuck in T-Shirts. Like the previous poster said, you might want to find some shorter T's. If you want to show off your belt buckle, there's a trick you can do where you tuck in the front and let the sides hang out - this looks best with shorter T's though.

When I ware a shirt with a floral print and it is collard and black, can I ware a bandana and tie around my neck as a tie?

I wouldn't recommend it.

Should I ware my nice pair of jeans with dress shoes only or could I ware sneekers.

I'd stay away from really dressy shoes with jeans, unless they are plain (no wing tips.) and not too shiny. Also, certain kinds of dress shoes (slip-ons and monk straps) seem to look better with jeans. I'd lean towards sneakers though, especially styles made by Diesel, Puma and Steve Madden - or if you have more money look into Hogan or Dolce & Gabbana.

When I ware painters pants, whats the best shoe, dress or sneekers?

Painters pants are very casual, so I'd say sneakers.

When I have a blazer on can I get away with a long sleved dress shirt with no tie worn over the belt or should I tuck in?

Yes, but only if the shirt is on the short side. An untucked dress shirt that has long shirt tails would look kind of funny with a blazer over it. If you're wearing this look to the office, don't do it, but if you're going for the cool shirt (untucked), distressed jeans, and casual blazer look then it would look nicer.

personally i never tuck in tshirts. if showing off the belt buckle you can just tuck in the front, right behind the belt buckle. [although USHER popularized this, try not to apply this to XXXXXXL shirts, or in general avoid wearing what doesn't fit.]

No tucking anything into jeans unless you are participating in a rodeo.
I'm not sure I agree with this advice. One of my favourite looks for summer is a Lacoste golf shirt or slim-cut linen button-up shirt tucked into a pair of well-worn, regular-fit Diesels with driving mocs or modern trainers.

I think this depends greatly on your body shape, age, and personal style. Arnold Palmer in that GQ picture (April I think) looked like a super badass in a tucked-in polo shirt, whereas I would look like a nerd. I need smaller, shorter shirts untucked.

I meant wear not ware, I was in a rush when I posted and did not self correct myself. I appreciate the advice. I am a guy. Its just nice to get a perspective sometimes.

When I said collard, I meant a dress shirt with a collar.
I will really try to watch my spelling, I guess when I type I have a blindside problem. There are some words that I am unsure of and if I do not use them often, I leave it alone.

I should use a spellcheck more.
