    jet, i like the tuck because of the way it breaks up the pant/boot. i hate when i look down and i see my boots sticking out from under the hem(8'' or bigger), reminds me of a bad bootcut jean(although this is exaggerated in my mind).thats why i tuck or keep the hem small. id also consider a short cropped pant (preferably lanvin ribbon) to wear with loafers.

    scott why wouldnt these mesh? even if i had some trousers and a button up--like in the pic? or it wouldnt look well on me. not fighting, just asking.

    i cant always wear kva, but i do like the dressier/combat side of it. im looking at different options, simple black trousers, no cargos. plain white button ups, no asymmetrical collars. clean dress boots with a sheen to them, not matte

    looks good, speckled nep is a cool touch.

    yay/nay...im almost certain i could pull it off with these(you know what im talking about)

    they seem tailored for it

    You need a lot of sex appeal, nice legs and a certain degree of "femininity" to rock this look...

    No offense, but if I had to make up a list with SF dudes who should refrain from buying/wearing this your name would definitely appear on it... ( and not at the bottom of the list )

    You need to move away from the tuck and this is completely dissonant from your aesthetic, this is meant for raf head to toe pretty boy dior swag hedi era, you're going for kva new age baggy(ish) steez mixed with military influences, these have 0 place in your wardrobe.

    this is a good explanation. you and jet should start an advice thread.

    on a side note, youll probably still see me boot tuck because that is all within the military aesthetic. so dont be offended when you see a fit pic. i dont want you to think that i have completely ignored your advice. i appreciate it all, really.

    edit: yeah i could def see you wearing these unc...the whole thing actually

    they don't afaik, get the shorts over the pants

    rick owens cropped tux short, tailored swing pants, or tailored swing shorts? [​IMG] pretty sure I'd look good in all three. Anyone know if LN-CC does a vat discount for US customers?
