    Shirt is bad. Collar is way splayed, and the FC with no jacket is just no good. Nothing about this do I like. Not even the socks.

    Shoes might be OK. Have to see them from the top.

    For the jeans: wear them around the house and such and wash them more frequently than you would otherwise and that distinctive "stonewash" blue will fade down to be more of a purer light blue--which will look different (and by many accounts 'better'). But don't "burn" them. :D

    Copied over from, the accidental placing in WAYWT? I got a comment saying it was weird, to wear loafers in winter—to which I would normally agree, but we have a very mild winter, in the UK this year, at around 10 degrees Celsius (50 F)!

    The only denim I've seen with that horizontal weave is in a pair of RRL's that I have and love- so, I have to ask, are those RRLs?

    I actually like the loafers, the suede helps. My only thing is with the cuffs, but this is personal, I just don't like cuffed jeans.

    I used to have some fantastic horizontal weave denims from Edwin - albeit of a much more SW&D style - but they were some weird one-off things I got from the factory sale in Tokyo. Never seen them sold in shops and I haven't seen any decent quality ones from any other maker recently.

    I think the problem with the loafers isn't the temperature outside, but that they are paired with a thick navy peacoat and gloves. "It's a cold and foggy outside, but I put on my summer loafs because I just like them"

    I like the outfit, minus the loafers. And the cuffs.

    It is distinctive. The denim heads are more interested in a slubby texture as that is due to the looms being older and more imperfect. The RRL that I have was made in the USA from Japanese denim, so I think this denim with its prominent horizontal weave must be a niche denim from one of the Kojima denim factories... but that is pure speculation.
