    Are these Mark McNairy? I'd say go for it! I have a pair of navy, suede which are really comfortable! [​IMG] ?

    They are. I just don't know what crap green shoes would go with...
    Wearing blue, blue and more blue for work for the past 10 years has somewhat killed my color-coordination skills.

    I've worn olive with navy before so I guess that would work? White trousers (obv), brown, pastels, all kinds of jeans? I think the one I posted would work better with a wider variety because of the lighter soles, although I can understand if you don't like the raised sole? [​IMG] ?

    Cost is $215, to go with regular denim, "regular" color chinos/khakis and maybe shorts...

    Opinions? Alternatives? Budget is under $300 (+/- $50).

    The black soles on the McNairy pair make those a little less versatile. I think, despite being olive suede and mildly brogued, those will look pretty boring when worn.

    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 think you could make it work.

    I don't see it working for you honestly.

    Did you get that julius blazer? would be a much better choice, brand synergies aside.


    uh, 3 days left on that auction. Conflicted cuz cloak fw2004 is so badass. Wish I could find the runway video I saw months ago.

    +1 (although I'd prefer it with long sleeves).

    My instinct wants me to say ditto, but I think shirts with a pattern like this, in long sleeve, can be a little garish!

    Pretty far from S2A's usual design. I wouldn't buy a retro parka from them, just as I wouldn't buy, I dunno, black jeans from Woolrich.
