    Nope, those are a favorite of lots of ppl here. Not my style but if they're yours you should get em.

    Thoughts? Looking for a reddish knit for the fall, is this too loud?

    In my opinion stripes are kind of out. If you must have a striped shirt, I might pick another, but that one is fine if you like it and/or the price is right.

    To answer my girlfriend's question, yes I am serious.


    Only if you drink red bull religiously.

    Durable enough to last, but nice enough to wear to the office. I am not looking to spend more than 100-120.

    ERROR
    DOES NOT COMPUTE



    Increase your price range by at least double if by durable you mean 'will last years through many resoles' and if by 'nice for office' you mean 'leather of high enough quality that you can tromp through snow and salt every day and still make them look new with a polish'. You also probably want a rubber sole. Look at Grenson and Loake, maybe, but I think they only make leather-soled shoes. A brogue boot would probably fit the bill for you, and you can always take them to a cobbler for topying (rubber patch on leather sole) Those Cole Haan's will look terrible/fall apart after 1 season.

    So its about time for another pair of denim for me. I have been looking around and i see my two options as:

    Naked and Famous Green Weird Guys

    or

    Another pair of indigo denim, bringing me to my next point:
    Which pair?
    RRL Slim Fits?
    KMW 1980s?
    KMW Rockers?
    LVC 505 1967?
    Ande Whall Grifters?
    3sixteen straights?
    Skull 5010?


    I've got a pair of the lightweight crate routes, but they aren't exactly my perfect fit.
    Should I go for a pair of perfect (or close) Indigo or the NF weird guys(which fit okay on me)?

    Looking for a pair of shoes that can be worn everyday, anyday as beaters that go well with slacks, khakis, and denim. My Nike tennis shoes were my previous beaters, and after 3 years of almost everyday wear, they've died down. On a budget ($40-50), and would love some input. Thanks.

    Ok I'll help you. Get some Chucks in white or black. Or a different color if you feel risky and adventurous. Should mostly go with anything though. I think you can get them for that price.

    I thought that was a joke-- that was a real question?

    This is a world where I get flamed for telling someone that they need to wash unsanforized denim before wearing it.
