why? refining your sense of style and combinations.
say again? ddn catch that
Missing it entirely. There is no black whatsoever in the SC, and a black shoe with anything paired with a gun club would be 100% wrong. Has nothing to do with style or combining.
ah, ok. it looks deep black on my monitor and,...
...no, it's not wrong. horses for courses.
IST - the tie from yesterday was Polo.
I don't really like the jeans, but if you're going to wear them with that shirt, wear the jacket too. I'd echo the poster who mentioned using chinos rather than jeans if you want a coloured trouser option.
Mr Sam needs to get you to swap hats with the Mexican.
I like the tie and suit separately but not together. Perhaps irrationally, that tie's feels "summery" to me, and the flannel suit is of course autumnal. I'm not quite sure why the tie feels so sunny to me; I think it's the combination of the white stripes and the open weave of the tie. Without the stripes the weave alone wouldn't be enough to be summery, and equally, the stripes alone wouldn't make it so either.
colour is great.
i dig the jacket very much.

^nice bow tie.
Really? Garsson's and EFV's are nice bow ties. This one, not so much IMHO, whatever the good reasons for wearing it.
What can I say, I like it. You are right though, Garssons and EFV are also very nice.
Sorry spoo, but i stand by what i say. Black is quite severe and would be good with the jacket on or off.
Blue and definitely lighter than Navy would be better than black in that there would be more contrast with the shirt and tie when the jacket is off and be good with it picking up a colour of the jacket when it is on.
or a more powerful (darker) grey pair of trousers would probably be the best of all choices provided it gives more contrast to the top half of the outfit which looks good.
I will also say again that black shoes should definitely be worn with monochromatic colour trousers. In this particular outfit of yours, there is no brown to be seen. The entire outfit is blue white grey black and when brown shoes are worn with such an outfit, one tends to think, does the poor man only own one pair of shoes that he has to wear with everything. But hey maybe it is a USA thing to wear brown shoes with black/grey/blue/white clothes.
I suppose its also very USA to wear shoes with no socks (the shoes must stink to high heaven with all the heat and bacteria caused toe-jam), or having the SC, tie, collar, sleeves all fitting perfectly and then dont bother to even hem the trousers to the correct length, just roll them up till they are kinda ok.
So I suppose brown shoes with non-brown clothes adheres to the same sort of cultural rules without defined reason.
I would be happy to hear constructive reasons for these style anomolies. Please educate me if you will.
I knew that you would spot me!
