    Yeah I have a pair of burgundy cords that get a ton of wear in the fall or winter. Don't know what you guys are on about.

    I pretty much only wear them with tan shoes because they look bad with my brown ones, but they're super easy to wear with navy, gray, green, tan of any kind, my camo blazer, etc. etc.

    Oh yeah I've worn them with CP duck boots that are navy and brown a bunch too, which is apparently what I had on the only time I ever posted them here. Coincidentally I'm also wearing navy, gray, and camo as well as rug pattern

    Burgundy is easy. They just look really bad with my brown EG longwings, because those already have hints of red in them. Lots of pants look bad with those though so idk

    My GF threw a GBV flannel in the dryer and now it's too small. This is a serious test of our relationship...

    ...on the plus side, I'll be tagging along with her for a conference in Chicago next spring, which means hanging out at Horween, buying up remnants and shell seconds!

    Thanks, the jacket is cotton ripstop, so, no I don't think it's what you're thinking of.

    I was thinking of this one (but I see now that the pattern on yours is smaller and more clearly visible).

    lol yeah the camo pattern is weird, kinda has a fade/washed out effect due to being printed on the base fabric and not directly on the cord, sideways it just looks olive but strait up front the pattern shows through kinda subtlety depending on lighting, hard to get decent pics of it tbh.

    It's one of my grails and its actually the fadeout pow suit, not the fadeout camo, same season and pic model.
    the pics make the camo look better but I found the opposite to be the case as pic angle and lighting are deceiving and camo is too present up front and tone is a bit too bright and contrasting, pow is better balanced imho.

    but, what if I like burgundy pants?! :embar: Actually I find them pretty useful as a color. To me a dark red is almost a fall staple color. I assume you mean that blue shoes are basically a try-hard hipsterific GQish trendy look? I don't really follow the trends. Is a blue leather/suede shoe like some sort of current trend? My question was more around is it a versatile color to those of you who own it. Blue Jeans / Navy pants are almost beyond questionable, and a blue shirt wouldn't get a second look, so why would shoes of the same color? I'm just picturing the same pants and inverting the top (shirt) and bottom (shoes) colors...

    Thanks for the Yoox suggestion. I'm not in the USA so shipping back is expensive/difficult plus might get hit with duties, and have pretty tricky feet. I at least know the low W+H fit me and that's a small miracle.
    Also does it matter if they're on sale for $200?

    really? really?! is this like the I'm so secure with my sexuality that I'm going to do something gay sort of argument? Like you think guys who are afraid of standing out intentionally try to to get attention to prove they're not insecure sort of thing?
    pfft, stick to baller knits Jetson

    specifics? Color, stitching, shape, price, etc? Thanks.
    Like I said I have a lot of trouble even finding something that fits let along looks acceptable. I trust the community's opinion to some extent

    I don't think so... I wear burgundy/plum kind of pants all the time. Matches great with a ton of top colors and for footwear it's pretty easy too. I go with white, mid grey, brown, navy, actually the only color shoes I don't wear them with is black.

    Papal indulgences should only be preached with caution, lest people gain a wrong understanding, and think that they are preferable to other good works: those of love.

    Christians should be taught that the pope does not at all intend that the purchase of indulgences should be understood as at all comparable with the works of mercy.

    Christians should be taught that one who gives to the poor, or lends to the needy, does a better action than if he purchases indulgences.


    Because, by works of love, love grows and a man becomes a better man; whereas, by indulgences, he does not become a better man, but only escapes certain penalties.

    Christians should be taught that he who sees a needy person, but passes him by although he gives money for indulgences, gains no benefit from the pope's pardon, but only incurs the wrath of God.


    Christians should be taught that, unless they have more than they need, they are bound to retain what is only necessary for the upkeep of their home, and should in no way squander it on indulgences.


    Christians should be taught that they purchase indulgences voluntarily, and are not under obligation to do so.


    Christians should be taught that, in granting indulgences, the pope has more need, and more desire, for devout prayer on his own behalf than for ready money.

    Re-reading my post, I can see how what I wrote gives off the impression that I don't like burgundy trousers and blue sneakers. It has nothing to do with trends (I don't think I see people wearing those items very often). Mostly I just think that it's very easy to wind up with a bland outfit unless you manage to do a kickass job of layering (cf. c4est above).

    It's your money, so it's up to you whether that means they're "worth it." I just happen not to not like those sneakers very much—if I were to get some blue suede hi-tops, I'd either go all out and get the vintage Common Projects, or I'd just get some Pro-Keds for cheap (if they still make the style I'm thinking of)

    here's some random fashion news for you, via http://www.thedailybeast.com/fashion.html

    Kanye West Slams Louis Vuitton: Kanye West spoke out against Louis Vuitton during a radio interview with Los Angeles's Power 106 on Monday. He criticized the luxury label for its extremely high prices and said if he “had the opportunity to design for Louis Vuitton now I wouldn’t.” West once called himself the "Louis Vuitton Don" in his debut album College Dropout -- and then went on to collaborate with Vuitton in 2009 for a sneaker collection which ranged in price from $840 to $1,140. In 2012, he worked with Guiseppe Zanotti and released a pair of shoes retailing at $5,800. During the interview, he also said that he does not “totally agree with what H&M and Zara does” either, but appreciates their efforts to be creative without breaking the bank. West collaborated with A.P.C. earlier this year on a capsule collection of t-shirts, hoodies and jeans, mostly under $300, which sold out within a few hours of its release. [TMZ]

    ...

    Calvin Klein to Design Drake's Tour Wardrobe: Rapper Drake announced that Calvin Klein will be designing the outfits for his world tour, which is called..."Would You Like a Tour?" Italo Zucchelli, men's creative director at the brand, has been working on "three unique capsule collections for the rapper" that include a hoodie based on Calvin Klein's Spring/Summer 2014 blue sky pattern, a fully-denim ensemble, and one that features "innovative fabrics with neon details and reflective accents." Zuccheli announced his admiration for the rapper. “I love Drake -- he is very talented and I like his effortless attitude in terms of his style and music.” [WWD]
