    For something closer to the mf look, I Rachel Comey oxfords, like the Derringer or Mateba. Maybe Paul Smith if you can find something you like. What would you be wearing your shoes with?

    thanks, I'll look into those. Will be wearing with cropped chinos or cords, and a button down? maybe shorts in the summer time.

    Don't buy suede bucks

    this should be "don't buy average suede bucks".

    Just cos they are and will be hideously played out doesn't mean there aren't amazing pairs out there.


    Some of those Trickers x junya ones are pretty good.

    I considered hemming because I'm like a 29-30 inseam and they look really silly stacked 35", but I'll probably either trade or sell.

    Dunno, I think the stacks look pretty good on those. They're not all-over-the-place sloppy, and they don't make you look short. (I'm moderately biased, though, since the shortest inseam I can get away with on jeans is ~34".) The color's unique, and I think they'd look good sagged maybe an inch or so lower.

    Do you just not wear them? FWIW, I'd expect the gradients to be more difficult to wear.

    I've only ever worn them once and I'm just not hugely confident I can pull them off. By the same token, I worry that the gradient ones will make it look like I pissed myself.

    some new footwear (suede bucks)

    or a +j military jacket?

    Right now my footwear is white vans and ll bean boots and my outerwear consists of an ll bean wool overshirt, an oversized gap utility jacket, and my snowboarding jacket which I rarely wear casually.


    Get some new boots IMO, like slimmer profile boots. But if you must chose between the two you posted, get the suede bucks.

    I'm not a big fan of short-sleeved shirts, but this doesn't look bad. Although I'd prefer it if the pattern scaling was a tad larger.
    Thanks for your feedback. I agree with the print scaling was somewhat different. What's wrong with short sleeved shirts anyway? (edit: for casual wear, obviously)

    People are just haters.
    Short sleeves are awesome.

    "Don't wear short sleeves or you'll look like a nerd"
    "Don't wear black and navy together"
    etc
    Just another stupid made up rule for insecure people who don't know how to dress themselves and like to have rules to follow

    Yeah my girlfriend is swaying me away from it as well...I've some overtime this weekend so may just put the extra cash towards a few things!

    what the hell is wrong with all our girlfriends?

    is it just that they think we'll look too girly wearing it?

    because, I mean, we all post in SW&D. They should have given up on us being manly long ago.

    Admittedly they are hard to wear. They don't look dorky on their own but they can depending on your body and facial features. I just wear them open with a tank-top mostly.
