PSG - great looking combo. sounds like you have a great day ahead. enjoy.
justin - i am a big fat hippo, and i found that the best angle to hide that, and properly show your fit, at least the shirt/tie/jacket, is to hold your arm out and angle the phone to take a pic across your chest. like so.
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
moar casual stuff.
Nice combo PSG and estitchy. Estichy, what are those trousers called?
Still wintery here in the E of England. Viyella OTC.
they are the vintage chino, from uniqlo. this is their second voyage, i really like fit.
Thats perfect stitchy. Ill start posting it like that a bit more often in that case. I always just feel you never really get a good idea of the fit but rather only the colors/patterns of the combo.
btw love the casual outfit
thanks! yeah, it doesnt get the whole fit, but its really hard to get full pics that are accurate. being able to show the up top combo is cool imo. i like seeing them sometimes more than full fits. PSG had a phenomenal one not too long ago.
Very nice stitchy, big like.
It's so good that I offer my 5k post for you!
2 questions for the gents here and I figure this is probably the best place to post.
Would anyone wear string loafers as offered by Skoaktiebolaget? What would one wear with them?
Second question has anyone tried Gustin denim? I "backed" a pair of jeans in light italian as it was called which looks like a lighter wash but I wanted to see if anyone had experience with their denim. Price seems awesome.
The Carmina loafer- yes, I would wear them. In fact a similar look was popular with several companies in the 80's. I think the suede makes them casual-elegant. Easy enough to wear with jeans but also ideal for a summer linen suit. When wearing a blue blazer and grey pants these would be just the right detail to keep you from being mistaken for a security guard. They would look good with most trim chinos as well.
I was thinking to wear it with jeans for a casual summer shoe sockless or with liners. My other thought would be to wear them super casually with shorts (yes I said shorts)
And I guess no one has tried or heard of Gustin denim then
The new Gustin line has just been released. There are a few positive reviews on Tumblr. The ones I ordered don't arrive until May so I will let you know then. One pair is a heavy Cone Mill US fabric and the other is a heavy Japanese denim.
I tried on Gustin about a year ago. I liked the fit so I was delighted by their new pricing and variety of fabrics.
justin, loafers look cool but i dont think i could rock them. more power to you if you can. i think if you plan on wearing them with shorts, one of the more "fun" colors would be neat. no idea about the jeans.
