Or you're living in the year 2015.
(Or any other year since the 1950s?)
I like your moxie and really hope you are right.
I've done this before.
hey you can wear cutoffs and a chunky headband as long as you wipe down the equipment your a-ok in my book. need a spot bro?
Ba-ZING! (seriously tho, i don't wear sneakers unless i'm sneaking)
This kind of statement is what makes me turn away from this forum from time to time.
There are types of sneakers that I don't think look good with denim (I'm thinking specifically of running shoes -sorry Steve Jobs). But there are also sneakers that look very nice with denim. My preferred shoes to wear with denim are brown leather sneakers. But wear what you like, and tell the rest of the world to f--k off if they don't like it.
I agree with @Fueco . Jordans + Jeans are a match made in heaven.
I to think some sneakers are ok. Like today I found some of those harris tweed nike hightops from I think like 2004. There a green hightop. I would rock them with selvedge jeans unfortunately there a 9.5 but I think double 00 is correct I think that's what I was looking for. Tapper not rolled and as far as no socks haven't tried it the look is to euro for me I think.
Found a pair in purple a couple weeks back. Such awesome shoes.
I don't like the dress shoes with jeans look. I think it clashes most of the time. I wear my CP's and Lanvin's with jeans all the time, though. Don't know what @double00 is talking about
Are you guys all talking about basketball shoes or ANY sneaker?
double00 - are you saying that like Common Projects with denim is a no-go in your book? Because that's insane.
I'm all about different shoe/denim combos
I stick with a few sneakers and desert boots/chukkas. Rarely branch out!
It's always going to be problematic to speak in absolutes regarding fashion. It all depends on context and what idiom you're trying to "speak" in.
Better to be a descriptivist than a prescriptivist, and study and enjoy the variety of modes of expression. Which is why dishing out do's and dont's is mostly dumb (even though I still fall into it sometimes, because pedantry) without knowing the intent. If you know the intent, or can deduce it with decent confidence from contextual clues, then you can objectively analyze if it's being fulfilled (and I think that discussion is healthy and fun to engage in) but otherwise it's mostly subjective.
Which is a long way of saying I'll shut up now
Yes like those but green. There pretty sweet i may have to get myself a pair. I left them because of the size. IF ANYBODY WANTS THEM THERE $10 GET AT ME THERE A 9.5 and 8 in condition.
Agreed. There are guidelines, not rules.
If I want to wear a coogi sweater with denim and high tops, I'm going to.
I also really liked 1996. Not sure if relevant.
what @ChetB said.
our opinions on personal style are obviously subjective - even if offered as absolutes, they're only personal opinions after all
and he's right, it's usually legible as such (unless of course the reader is a pedant)
so, no, i'm not gonna preface every post with "imho..." and i'll trust folks to read it how they will, without apology
