    1999, 2009, 2999 or even 999999999999, makes no difference.

    if it was written in 09 then square toed shoes have been out of style for even longer so this article rings even truer. :foo:

    In regards to square toed shoes, what a fantastic perspective Junior Varsity, thank you for sharing. What suggestions do you have for casual rounded tips for the mentioned attire?

    This doesn't fit at all.

    Nice overall ensemble. Is the jacket length long enough? Seems like it falls short, but maybe it is the angle of the picture.

    Derek, I really don't like this at all. There's too much going on:
    • coat's texture
    • shirt pattern
    • tie texture
    • trou pattern
    • yellow discordant PS
    • wristraff
    • brown suede shoes.

    Each of these is vying for attention with another. Its like bar with music that's too loud, so everyone's yelling at one another., but you can't understand a dammed thing anyone's saying.

    You coat appears a size too small, both in length and in actual numbered size, for my taste; it looks as if you're unable to button it.

    I'd try this with a few less elements - plain shirt and plain trou would make a huge difference here.

    Well you are right,but it's very hard for RTW,i'm planning on going bespoke in close future so i think that will fit better,and btw i've gained around 5 kilos(10-12 pounds) lately and that had its consequences too.


    I love double monks:)


    you also agree with the chest pulls?

    that piece on square-toed shoes is fucking brilliant - i know quite a few people who need to have that anonymously left taped to their doors.

    No alterations tailors in your neck of the woods?



    My Mistake. :embar: Between my eyesight and my monitor, I should probably stop commenting on colors all together.

    Yup. Same here. One of my best friend's girlfriend requested that I go shoe shopping with them to help the guy find some nice shoes. As hard as I tried to tactfully get the guy to not buy them, he still ended up going for some cheap square toes. :confused:

    ...in DETAILS magazine, which has long-since become a parody of itself.

    But despite these two strikes against it, it happens to be true. No square toes. Ever.
