Hate to bring this back but can this still be a look? Full nike/adidas tracksuit with an over coat?

Other than the poses and the classic Cazals glasses what is so bad? I sometimes wear hoodies with overcoats. Adidas Superstars aka Shelltops were the Jordans of the day so subbing out a sneaker of your choice would for the most part modernize the look. Then again Shelltops are still super popular shoes so keeping them would be right in line with the retro vibe.
I've never been a track suit kinda guy so I'd be uncomfortable feeling so comfortable :colgate: but AFAIK soccer-style track suits with the super duper snug bottoms are very popular nowadays. I'd swap out the track bottoms for a pair of jeans, keep the hoodie or the track suit top and either rock it with a pair of Wallabees or some casual work boots like Wolverine 1000milers, 6" Timberlands or some classic sneakers like Puma Baskets, Adidas Lacombes or even a pair of Nike SB Dunks, making sure the brand of suit and sneaker match.

If you are a sneaker head (I am not) this is a no brainer but for many people this would be an easy look to pull off, minus the painter's caps

So where I live has gone into lockdown again in some areas, but others are still open. Does this truly solve anything? I checked a local store and it just seems like those who live in this lockdown areas are just traveling to the areas not shut down.

the pitting on those silver buttons looks strange.
put them on a piece of aluminum sheet and spread some baking powder then pour vinegar on top and let sit for a minute submerged ,then polish with a piece of cotton .

They've seen much better days. I'll give that a shot and get em all cleaned up.

I really enjoy my Martin Rose x Nike track pants. I'm considering getting the matching top and just wearing it with some pair of Jordans or SBs to complete the look, the only problem is it's winter lol. I suppose it's not that complicated as long as you don't over do it.
