    I don't think the shoes are bad, but I prefer black shoes on a fit like this one. I'm not sure why really, as I typically enjoy more color to less. But I'm finding that I prefer black shoes in navy/gray palettes. I think Booth is finally getting to me.

    thanks


    i agree, that was my thought once i saw the pics. NOBD is the master of suede.


    interesting. i just have a hard time associating black with casual.

    Hey Kappelan, just curious: the pics on torontomanblog -- are they of you & your friends, of random people in TO, or gathered from the interwebs? I must inhabit the wrong hood, because I've not seen much of this kind of fashion 'round here...

    Here's an example of something in the area of black and dress casual.

    I respectfully disagree. I think this jacket can be hip if worn properly and with the right attitude. I can safely say that I can pick just about any other jacket from my wardrobe and look better and more refined, but I like the challenge and the fun that this one brings.
    I wouldn't call it dated, it's just funky.


    I did that last time, it was just okay. I wanted to try something else this time. I start having doubts that anything with this jacket can be brilliant. Decent and fun at most, so I'll shoot for that.


    Thanks, I'll think about cords. Not sure I can picture it right now, but it might work.

    Perhaps I have just found myself the victim of cognitive bias.

    No, that is, indeed, the best safest way to wear it. You are absolutely correct.

    In that case I revert back to my suggestion of a pink shirt, brown donegal pants, and suede shoes. At least, I think that's what I suggested.

    I didn't really expect that :foo: would see the intended humor (though I hold out hope!), but I'm happy you did.

    Apparently I should clarify that today's suit is dark chocolate, not black.

    trying to pull off my least favourite jacket for casual friday today. oxford cloth hidden button down, cream hank and brown suede at the bottom. pictures were taken in the twilight after work.

    my boss wanted to show me his gratitude and asked me what I was yearning for as incentive... I asked for a big box of LEGO's and all I got was this bottle of scotch =(
