We can all just keep thinking that.
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.
+1 (for both).
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.
You mean you're not the bastard lovechild of Chris Mathews and Johnny Rotten?
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)!
They're my "landlord jeans" for when I have to do teh manual labor on teh rentalz.
You're not James Spader?
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 like that a lot, Rob.
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.
