    Camoshita suit separates— the drawstring trouser kind of forces you to wear a knit instead of a proper shirt, which I’m not opposed to, Just wondering how versatile you think this would be and what colors would you wear with this kind of grey/brown? Cream, burgundy, tan, black jump to mind.

    No.

    Get NB, Nike, Adidas runners. I have an Adidas Haven which is comfortable and looks good.

    If that's the exact colour you want, and if you like how it fits, then it's worth it. You would pay less at the Gap, and I'm very happy with my Gap denim jacket.

    Cream or black. Not very versatile, but once you have enough clothes, versatility is overrated imo

    Those seem fine in the way that all the stuff you've posted is fine. I don't think there's anything particularly egregious about the clothes, but they're also not very exciting. They just sort of safe, European middle class looks. Which, again, is perfectly fine.

    I think you could benefit from trying out other things though. Maybe start by paying more attention to certain Instagram accounts, lookbooks, cultural things like movies, music, etc. And then figure out what are some other ways to develop your look. As is, puffer jackets, blue jeans, Pepe Jeans sneakers are all perfectly fine, but they're also kind of boring.

    That wash is bad. Vintage Levi's or Lee if you want that kind of cut and light color.

    Yeah. I recommended 574’s, Valentino’s and AF1’s. Dieworkwear suggesred retro 70s runners and like Stan smiths.

    @HollyJoint Margiela does a take on that silhouette which isn’t bad (retro runner), can often find them on sale too

    These look good in Internet product shots, but I found them to be pretty bad on foot.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm a little hesitant because the typical nike or adidas runners seem to me very sporty, and I do not wear this kind of clothes. I'll probably use the sneakers with a jumper and a barbour over it if it's raining or cold.
    I'm determined to buy the ones I posted on top, and for a good price, only 65 €, even so any suggestion is welcome.

    @urbanhippieswe on Instagram wears New Balance a lot with things like field jackets and workwear. He looks great but it's not everyone's cup of tea. If I were cool enough to wear sneakers I think I'd take a look at Crown Northampton. To me they seem a little more cohesive with the type of clothes you've mentioned.

    ^ Actually, those minimalist type of sneakers would prob work with what @HollyJoint wears. IMO better than sport- or sport-inspired sneakers. There are a ton of companies doing that style nowadays and they mostly differ on the margins in terms of quality and last shape. If he doesn't like those, it's not hard to find slightly different alternatives.
