    your pants are too short. undo that upturn, and then you will look like a normal person

    Chukkas: Loake for Charles Tyrwhitt 'Kempton' - prefered the Dainite sole the CT's have


    Hey MoK, do you have some close-up pictures of the shoes? I put the Loakes' on my birthday wishlist and now I can hardly wait to find out, if I'll get them. Can you post a review on them?

    Thanks gnatty it was a nice $5.00 find size 38 I was discouraged when I first received it because of how unfitting it was but after bringing it to my tailor he tailored it amazingly. I love that guy even though it ran me about $60.00 which isn't too bad at all.

    wow. For $65.00 all in, I'd say you did pretty well. I am a big fran of strong patterns like that, so I must say I am damn envious.. [​IMG]

    Similar to me love bold prints like that especially on a coat, where you have to do very minimal things around the rest of your outfit.

    The blazer is nice, but I think it would look better with a slimmer pair of pants and sleeker shoes. What was the inspiration behind the loose fit khakis and longwings.

    Some of you have gotten so caught up in the slim fit trend that you see everything else as "baggy" or "loose" fitting. His pants in the pic fit fine.

    I dont think that is the case, its more about congruency. RLBL is a very tailored, trim fit, very sleek. Everything else must fit that look for it to be congruent.

    Pretty good proof right there that it may have been a good thing you didn't try to make a go of your image consulting bizness, lol

    Since he was dressing casually, I disagree with you. If dressing in a suit, you "may" have a valid point.
