fritzl approved, ftw
According to Wikipedia, of course!
Depends on the monks for me. Some are dressy enough for suits in my opinion. (G&G oakham for instance.)
I'm the same with bluchers. Some, such as G&G Uppingham are dressy enough for suits (even if technically improper.)
I tend to look at the overall effect of the shoe.
Although - for presentations, meeting new clients, or anytime I feel a need to be proper I take no chances and go for the laceup oxfords/bals without fail. They may not always be black, but no monks or bluchers.
Better for me. I really would like some pindots, or a texture with striped trou.
Keep 'em coming Spoo........it's all good. (Was there purple elsewhere in your fit?)
Gdot, ill work on some pinGdots...
...HEY SPOO!! please go kop me some nice pin dots for that navy striped suit of mine.
Feel the power!
pin dots for striped trousers sounds pretty terrible to me, tbh.
well, im one to give it a try. i could use some pindots anyways. i dont have any at present. i still really need to get some herringbone like psg linked me before though.
these patterns are all seen as grandfather style in my neck of the woods. what can i say...?
What patterns are appropriate where you are Fritzl?
ill answer for him. the only appropriate pattern is SOLID.
your learning curve is precipitous
Well, that's what a thought.
Here in the 'new world' I believe it is generally considered to be less than correct to wear plain solid color socks with suits. Which leaves subtle patterns such as pin dots, herringbones, checks, houndstooth, etc. etc. as the options.
