Details on the shoes, please.

Nice tie for the Lobbs
Overcast weather, tired, feel a bit sick... definitely a DB day.
'sup with the belled out sleeve, Eason?
Wow. I disagree with everyone saying it's too short, I say that what you have is definitely a distinct look and you pull it off remarkably well. It's far more urbane and less staid than most of this forum seem to be comfortable with; if anything, the length could do with a bit of adjustment but the sleeves are not unacceptable as is. Color choice of everything is set so nicely against your skin tone too, I'm a bit lighter than you but that savory purple is just magnificent...
Derek - looks great as usual
NYRanger - getting the last use out of those summer colors...? I like the 4x1 but I'm not sold on the button placement there... too closely grouped?
NYR, just soooooo much shoe envy. All your cordovan...
Iammatt's rude post has been deleted. If I hadn't been working on other projects for the forum, it'd have been deleted earlier. Personally, I take his acerbic posts as invitations to discussion. But there are better forms of invitation. Hopefully he'll continue to work on them.
Um... I'm not wearing an undershirt. I guess from that angle it kind of looks like one.
Sorry if it was overly rude. I don't think I meant it as an invitation to discuss as much as I feel that this thread has unfortunately become mired in a cesspool of bad dressing which is reinforced by both incredible, myopic feelings of self perfection and bizarre sycophants reinforcing the idea that some of these modes of dressing are somehow pleasing. Rather than inviting discussion I mean it to invite even a small bit of self examination. I guess I don't know how to do that other than by making rather acerbic comments. Neither I nor anybody else can go through each fault and try to explain why, especially when the current posters are so damn self assured. I don't know what happened here, but I know that there is a certain change in the style of dress (not that it was ever consistently great) that shows a lack of fundamental knowledge. It often works well when somebody who understands the fundamentals of color, shape, proportion etc messes around with them, but when people just run around in terribly ill-fitting clothing and claim that it is some sort of personal sprezzatura (spazzatura is more like it) then the community owes them some sort of negative reaction. Just my .02, but I will try to be nicer in this age of sensitivity.
It would look so much better with both buttons closed.
Thank you, now finally up
You mean the button close?!!!!
You sometimes very rude, but you are honest! Thank you for honest criticism, it is very necessary! Respect!
