Hate boatshoes, so its a obvious no from my side.
Looking for Summer Shoes to go with Shorts. Don't think I can pull off Boatshoes with my wardrobe. 373 vs 574. Or recommend me something else. Thanks in advance
A pile of vomit fits a similar aesthetic
Both the same price. Need a good spring/summer shoe. The Quoddy's would probably be more versatile (could wear to the office), but the Oak Street's are more unique.
Does anyone have fit pics of the Oak Street trail oxford with shorts? Couldn't find any in their thread.
Hmm, yeah. I do agree about the shape, my initial reaction was to like them very much. The silhouettes all pretty much look really good. But the leather and the details on almost every pair just look disappointing.
Hmm... I'd probably be all over the oxbloods. Where for 70% off?
If the quality is there go for it. The shape is great.
How much are they with the 70% off?
FWIW the pair I had was off of Gilt and was probably a very early season. It was also a pair of derbies, not boots. That being said, it was absolutely shit. Worse than Cole Haan.
I guess you've already said you like the design, but the sole looks way too insubstantial for that type of boots. Throws off the shape IMO.
Appreciate it guys. Just kopped both off of gilt, I think prive has it right now too but slightly more expensive (gilt is 70% off so both cost just a tad over $100).
Will post back re: fit, quality, etc.
Agreed with hendrix re: soles, didn't notice that initially. Hope if i wear them untucked it won't be too obvious
@Lane definitely get that Cloak Blazer, I want it bad but can't afford it, so buy it. (Assuming this is the one tailored to an xs)
Don't Don't Don't fuck. this will not gel aesthetically in the slightest and it was tailored down as it is. DO NOT.
Get the raised ones, instead:
why wouldn't it gel? Also, it fits me like a glove methinks. I am waiting for his personal fitpics to finalize the decision.
I don't see it working for you honestly.
Did you get that julius blazer? would be a much better choice, brand synergies aside.
I think the arm details could work provided it fits him well but its up to him, what Julius blazer were you considering Lane, can you post a picture?
Get the raised ones, instead:
i do like them with the vibram soles, but im thinking the camp soles are more versatile - dont think the vibram soles work as well with shorts and i'm hoping these will look nice enough to wear to work with some chinos on casual days
Really tough call between these and the quoddys. I wish i had the $ for both...
I don't know, for me, boat shoe soles always wear a little thin after a while, so like the thicker soles here. I think they would rock with shorts?!
Cost is $215, to go with regular denim, "regular" color chinos/khakis and maybe shorts...
Opinions? Alternatives? Budget is under $300 (+/- $50).
