    bump.

    If you're looking at MMM shoes, get some laceless loafers before those.

    I would say no to those. Then again I hate anything created by Hugo Boss.

    I'm looking into these style of jackets:

    ...and looked through WAYWT, but didn't see anything -- how they should be worn; or, more appropriately, should these be worn?

    The largest risk you ever run by wearing a shirt jacket is appearing dull. Which is not a difficult risk to avoid.

    I like looking at these.
    Not sure I'd be caught dead wearing them though.

    More pics in the link. Is this a good idea, or a very bad idea? I haven't decided yet.

    Looks like a normal black hoodie that's slightly longer than normal and with side zipper pockets. Doens't seem that weird to me. If you think it'll fit you, why not.

    Ugly Hugo Boss shoes

    First one is silly, as it's more a statement that you've bought HB, than it is a good looking shoe. The last two aren't either good. Looks like they are made from sweaters. I assume they are quite pricey, and you could most def find better looking shoes at same (or lower) price.

    [​IMG] Generally, I would say I'm morally opposed to zippered breast pockets on shirts, but I think this does it well....I would love a shirt-jacket, and this piece is priced pretty reasonably I think.

    Gotcha. Thanks a lot.

    I'm curious - although this may be better in quick questions - in general, could sneaks (german army), mid/high tops (generic man), or even military/combat boots (Palladium Baggy) work with this, or would it be better suited with something from the desert boot variety?

    I can't really picture the former three working with the jacket; however, I am new to this.
