deets on shoes please
^ my guess is aldens
Alden x Leffot
Jacket's too tight in the waist and not a fan of the extra wide lapel, but the idea is good
It looks like you had the waist suppression applied as a tailoring job, but didn't take into account how bad it made the proportions, especially how it causes the pockets to sit too far around the side
Super low rise + super short jacket... no overlap between jacket and trousers. It's very effeminate, but that's the point. It works if you're comfortable with that (or you're a teenager), but it's generally not a good look on anyone over the age of 25, and in that case it only works on people with a slim (emaciated) build.

Nope, this jacket was made for me when I was at 160. I'm now at 175, and almost all of that 15 lbs was muscle in my upper body. Most of my stuff fits this way, and I'll be having it altered this summer. I haven't had the occasion to dress at work, so none of the stuff has been done yet. The stuff that's unalterable I'll be posting in B&S this week. 38 bonanza for folks who like full canvas 99% handmade garments in lux fabrics.

Great looks gents, I hope to learn from all of you! Sorry for the poor quality photo (tried to avoid looking like a creep while taking this picture)
NYR how do you manage to keep all your shoes in what looks like pristine, mint out of the box condition? In your current post, but also on your whiskey Alden boots with flippin crepe sole. All it takes is one wear for me and the crepe sole discolours slightly. Or are the streets in Brooklyn just that clean?
Prly because he has 600 pairs of shoes.
What brand and model are those shoes NYR?
These are Alden x Leffot.
As far as keeping them clean, one thing about Brooklyn is that there's not much "dirt". All concrete, and yes there's crap all over at times, but generally that stuff won't mess up a shoe. I also brush before and after each wear, making sure I clean up any blemishes I see. Its another great thing aout suede, cordovan, and chromexcel (which is what those boots are on), alls it takes is a little elbow grease and 5 minutes and they're good to go. I store them in their boxes under my bed with shoe trees as well. I also try to rotate evenly with the 5 or 6 pairs that I wear often, with boots only wearing a pair at most twice per week, and shoes, once per week.
My go to shoes are:
Carmina WTB (only for dressier occasions)
plus 2 suede for spring, Navy LWB and Snuff Captoe
My got to boots are:
I also have a pair of Black shell LWB which are worn very sparingly (funerals, night time with a suit, which is twice a year during parent teacher conferences)
The boots get most of the wear, especially October-April. I don't think 10 pair is excessive at all, especially on this forum.
Your pantaloons are too tight around the crotcheroo. Otherwise, not bad. I'm cool with it, colors and all.
NYR, those shoes are cool.
he wears tight pants to show off his bulge to attract teh foxy ladies!
this comes off as trying way too hard with all the colors - and the purple ps is exceedingly over the top
