Nothing is too pretty, fuck that. Nobody will notice but you anyway.
Seriously, even if you have a super-defined aesthetic, accessories is the one thing you can fuck around with and be a bit playful about.
Not advocating fun socks to be clear.
So on point here. That belt works perfectly with everything @upsett1_spaghett1 already wears and would add some (arguably needed) subtle visual interest—same way the new JMM glasses did even though they’re not technically within the classic repro workwear wheelhouse.

Not sure on this cashmere LP vest. Oozes quality and very luxe (criminally low light settings below désolé), however, I'm unsure if it's elegant or turning me into a spotted lantern fly.

These belts came out really small though 😫

did you size up a lot as per our guidance?
oh shit I didn’t see that. I just bought a 38 which is my normal belt size 😮

Thanks man, I appreciate that. I agree, hence I ordered it. Hope it fits now haha

Want to get some opinions on this frame for my specs (not the best picture). Much appreciated

Some of my family members and friends told me it doesn’t suit me and make me look old school in a way. I personally really like the fit and comfort for the frame on my face and probably the only round frame that I liked after trying couple of them.

Not the same color but the same style

Hard to say with half your face covered by the phone and mask. Your eyes seem to be well centered. Seem fine, but could be a bit small.

Maybe the picture didn’t do the justification for how it fit, I guess I’ll try again next time when I visit the stores. I personally liked how it looked at me when I tried in store but only concern whether round frame is suitable for my face shape. I tried some square frame (JMM, dita, etc) seems a bit awkward on my face 48CAF0DC-AD72-4B57-AC8C-D7C48DDCF543.jpegC3D8CB71-FB30-4444-AE57-62C3B826BF5B.jpeg903F0B7C-074C-4ED2-B69C-F5881765B73D.jpeg41085CFD-E2FC-4CFA-A751-0C996F7F69A4.jpeg

The optician did a good job selecting frames for you.

Based on the photos, I like the first and last the best. Those two appear to be similar and I like both better than the original frame you posted (Tavat?). Don’t care for the middle two.

The only problem is that it’s quite heavy and frame are too thick for my liking as optical glass (JMM Torino, hoorsenbuhs model V). I feel I might not be comfortable wearing it for long sessions. Maybe I’ll take a look at some other frames with similar size but something less heavy and thinner frame.

There's very little from RRL that isn't top quality, it's just the price that is prohibitive normally...

Really like the cut, but on the fence. Would wear with navy/grey/cream knits, olive jackets, brown shoes in leather or suede (for example). Or should I just wait for something solid in a similar shape, like the Monitaly riding pants?
