Great new glasses, and the fit of the pants is the best I've seen of yours. Great jacket too, though I recommend you zip it up and, at turns, roll around on some gravel and wheel bearing grease to break it in.

This last one is a tiny nit-pick and totally subjective (as if all the rest of this isn't), but I'd lose the belt and henley and just wear an untucked tee. Again, personal preference, and I struggle to explain why, but maybe it's cause fits where everything is 100% on point old school, tucked in, extra w i d e, and 72 oz weight feel a bit stiff.

I need to get a lighter belt (and I've been eyeing one in particular from Yuketen), but the belt I'm wearing has been a daily wear for the past 15 years!
i would have personally gone with a pair of boots here. i'm not exactly sure what kind (maybe like a side zip or a roper?), someone better attuned could suggest something. but i just think the shirt, undershirt, and jeans tell one story (all of which i really like), and the shoes feel a bit incongruous to it.

Thanks for the feedback! I can totally see why you suggested a boot, especially a roper with this fit (of course, I'm open to other suggestions too). I only own one pair of boots that would kinda fit that (Eytys Nikita, pictured below). If I owned a pair of loafers, I would maybe try them with this outfit. I ended up going with the wallabees because I thought they would come closest to matching the vintage everything else I'm wearing.

Thanks again for the comment :)

I respectfully disagree
I like the Clark’s. They bring a certain harmonious softness to the fit. I think boots would look to structured & stiff.

totally fair. maybe i just don't like wallabees in general?
One more for team boots here. Something to further underline the overall sleezy look.
