Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)?

All these patchwork jeans and pants are pretty ugly so this argument is a non starter. They can be tastefully done but these aren't it.

@Patek Those shirts suck. Based on your latest WAYWT would look out of place in your wardrobe I think. But who cares what I think. Buy it and get a pic up, I'm in for a good chuckle.

Your loss!

And for the record, I really like Cottle stuff and if someone gave some to me, or I could get it at, say, 1/3 of the original price, I would certainly be wearing it.

I used to work with a guy that cut his own hair...
We called him "Patches"

Agree. Those kimono shirts r bad
Man, you guys poo-pood all over my experimental kimono phase. I'm obviously bored and looking at stuff. I did grab the patchwork BDU pants and they hearken back for my military days and no one took a crap on them and they seem pretty safe (I would blouse them). I also got a safe PBJ chambray work shirt while I was on the Okayama Denim site (you know, to save the planet by shipping combined or something). It is tame enough that I didn't feel the need to ask.

Just got these Orslow fatigues in. Don’t mind my gym shirt just trying pants on. Are these way too baggy, should I get them tapered a little and hemmed? Also what kind of footwear would look good with them?

Don't taper and don't hem. If they aren't what you're looking for then try another maker or cut.

Fatigues usually work with the whole range of casual footwear. Go nuts.
I just feel like they’re too baggy for boots no? I think they’ll look cool with sneakers... not sure if I got any boots that they’d go well with due to color + baggyness

If that's how you feel, then don't wear them with boots or get another cut.

These aren’t slims. They’re the US Army version. My thighs don’t fit in the slim ones

they look really good on you tho 👌

I think those would work with boots. Obviously depends on the boot, but general workwear styles seem like they'd go naturally with those. Military-style boots, Viberg service boots, Alden Indy, etc.
