    ^ i was a little worried that there's no way to wear it without looking like a douche. [​IMG] is that true of white blazers in general?

    I was about to say "what a rip off of McQueen" If you can make that work it would be excellent. I could see it... would wear with black slim pants and MMM white painted sidezips. [​IMG] Takes some balls.

    Yes, SS09.

    It's not hard to put your finger on it, the model looks like a Dbag. McQueen summer 09 runway was pretty streamlined and minimalist (by his standards) but by no means easy to wear for the most part. I mean the smoke print silk stuff was some of the most accessible, that has to tell you something.

    thanks for the info. i *really* like his fw09 stuff and think some pieces (despite the runway presentation) are very wearable. but the spring stuff i don't know... definitely agree about the Dbag part tho. I wonder if it's just the guy (his haircut?) or is it because he's wearing matching (white) pants?

    hmm... which one's the douche?

    kinda leaning toward pulling the trigger at this point ...[​IMG]

    The Okini model is just always terrible.

    If you think you can do it, do it. Like I say I could wear it but probably wouldn't do so often enough to really justify and I think I'm feeling lazy about this summer.

    Should I buy some Sperry canvas shoes? If so, what color? Some are on sale at endless atm. I want them for summer wear in 110 degree heat. Sometimes flip flops are just not acceptable in certain establishments. Sperry Top-Sider Men's Striper Laceless Sneaker

    Quick question about them. Are they actually cooler than regular shoes?

    Can someone explain shoes with intended "no laces" but still holes for them? Never understood whats appealing about them? Why not take some good looking slippers/loafers, anything really. And, is this a good deal? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    it gives of a super-casual, "hey i just slipped these on" look but could end up looking try-hard.
    mmm for example, have an elastic tongue to keep you foot from sliding/keep shoe snug.

    meh, just wear the laces. maybe at the beach you can go lace less..
