    Every once in a while I buy something cheap and end up liking it and wearing it quite a bit. This has been the case with AA baby rib henleys and cardigans, All Saints hi-tops, and the zany printed Gap slim fit shirts they came out with this spring/summer.

    I'd say it all depends on whether you like them and think you'll wear them (and whether it creates any redundancy in your wardrobe).

    Fun or just a dumb idea?

    Pass. That pink/red colorway is an eyesore.

    Which of these is going to be the most versatile for a primarily darker colored palette (navies, blacks, grays, whites)?

    notwithit, in my experience with red suede, it usually fades quickly. I think that, combined with the color of the leather (even if it's not truly pink) would make these look kinda tired pretty quickly. If it were me, based just on the colorway I see in the pic, and my knowledge of the shoes in general, I'd say no. But I do like the idea.

    Definitely the third one.

    First scarf is too dark and the second one will end up becoming too "defining" an item.
    Third one basically stays within your colour palette but also opens it up gently.

    Didn't realize opinions would be so heavily divided on the red GATs.

    Middle scarf looks like a towel to me for some reason.

    Cheers, guys. I picked up the last two scarves from South Willard, although I really do prefer the texture of the first alpaca scarf.

    Also, $14 freight fee from South Willard for a scarf? That's a bit excessive, isn't it? :plain:
