    I thought the question mark was sufficient to translate my uncertainty, alas...

    Shootspeed that first fit is so dope! Exactly how I want to dress in the summer! Maybe the shoe search is over, I'll just get some Aldens :D
    How tall are you though?

    ^ 5'5". kinda hard to pull off boots at my height sometimes. the first fit is pretty much what i wear for studio time.

    i've had the alden tanker boots for a few years now and they're a good mix of durability and looks. combat sole + pull tabs look cool too. very military.

    Alright, then I should be able to pull them off too! I'm 5'6 :D

    And since you're in Cali I'm assuming they're alright in the heat?

    Yeah, they look great there. And pretty much what I wear in the summer (cropped trousers, tee or button up and sneakers). Would be nice to mix in some boots.

    ^ heat is no problem but i'm kinda used to it here. i thought you already had a decent collection of boots? i'd also rock some creepers in that fit as well.

    Similar yes I suppose. However I am trying to go for a cleaner, more fitted look when I do dress business casual.

    Today.

    J.Crew
    Industrie
    Mr Hare

    Couple of points having come home and taken the shots just now.

    1. Should have been wearing brown shoes (not sneakers and no Vibram sole [​IMG] )
    2. As I don't have brown suede shoes, I should have worn a darker shoe at least.
    3. Shirt sleeves still need taking up.
    4. I think I should be wearing proper trousers, not slim chinos with a fit like this.

    That's why his works and yours usually don't. You're trying to wear your casual clothes like you would wear a suit. You need to adjust to the more relaxed conventions of casual dress. Lots of people in the MC forum struggle with this and that's why you look like them. Just having a loose break in your pants and wearing beat up dress shoes (see stiker's) will relax the whole fit and make you look a lot more comfortable.

    Why post a fit just to say you should have worn different shoes, pants and shirt?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    On the points I raised, they were on reflection upon arriving home.

    I still think you should stop with patterned/checkered shirts

    Care to elaborate? Why exactly do you think that?

    Also, I don't recall you ever saying not to wear check shirts tbh.

    Well you've said you want to go for a clean look, checkered shirts aren't exactly "clean", and I just haven't seen many (if any) looks with them that look genuinely good

    You should really start shopping at Epaulet and asking for advice in the affiliate thread. If I wanted a clean bizcas style I'd probably just buy all my clothes from them.

    That's actually something i've also thought and have begun recently reading the significant amount of information available in that thread.

    I think initially I am looking to replace my slim chino's with some straighter leg trousers which should help with the business casual looks for work.

    Weekend/casual day's I need to loosen up a little. I can see how sometimes my fits can come across quite stiff.

    Alright great!
    Well, my Ann's have a high shaft and don't feel very summery to me.
    I like the cordovan (?) there, the sheen makes the whole fit IMO :slayer:

    That's stupid just writing off a whole genre of shirting, some checkered shirts look great, but they're just quite boring and they're the ONLY shirts he wears, which is the problem, he needs to get something different and more interesting in his wardrobe because all his pieces just look... average.
