White hoodie was my worst ever purchase: that huge expanse of white is just waiting to attract the worst stains imaginable, and of course, it happens sooner rather than later - and unlike with say, denim, it doesn't look cool, it just makes you look like a fumble-fingered fool.

Fwiw this is the kind of colour and cut I want. I have the logo crewneck version of this and the weight and feel and fit are ideal. I just don’t want to pay that for a hoody.
Probably not the brand you were after, but Fear of God Essentials just released one for about $90.

Edit: I now see it has a logo on the back.

Can I get some recommendations for casual, relaxed fitting dark-ish brown pants for SS?

I don't want some oversized pajama pants, but I also don't want some chinos that look like I receive early sale access at Brook's Brothers.

Something that wouldn't look out of place worn at a casual tech company, but can also be worn with flowy, short sleeve shirts.

Am I being overly specific, or do pants like this exists?

Please help.

The Uniqlo linen/cotton easy pants might fit the bill. https://www.uniqlo.com/us/en/product/men-linen-blended-relaxed-pants-425148.html

Thanks for the hoodie talk. I don’t wear hoodies often at all so it’s a very specific use case which is also why I don’t want to spend much. Uniqlo restocked their mainline off white hoody so I just grabbed one of those.

I didn't wear hoodies for years and years, but for whatever reason bought two relaxed/oversized black hoodies (Arket and HM "blank staples") a couple of months ago, and I have basically been living in them since. I was originally thinking Id only wear them at home, but now I happily throw a coat on top and wear them for walks and whatever...

Thinking of picking up the hi-shine gibson derby from Solovair. I just haven't heard good things about the quality and lifespan of Docs these days so I thought maybe it'd be a good option to spend a little more and go with the Solovair instead. I'd just like a nice work-wear esque derby shoe to wear to work standing most of the day. If anyone has any other recommendations I'd appreciate it! I really love the MHL postman derby she did with Solovair, but their regular 'postman' shoe seems to have sold out from the official site.

Another option would be the derby shoe from Our Legacy, although they cost quite a bit more

I really liked the monkey boots I got from Solovair (which I also was inspired to get after seeing the MHL iteration). Quality was great for the price. Cant speak to the hi-shine leather, but would highly recommend the "greasy" black option.

Thanks for the rec, looking at the product photos it looks like the MHL versions use the 'greasy' leather

Belts 1, 2, or 3? Belts 2 and 3 would be put on a vintage tan leather strap.

To be worn with jeans, RRL, workwear type fits.
