    its a very rare breed which only hatches beneath a full moon on the third Saturday night of the month under the guise of its mother AND father duck. It can only be woven into cloth by the mother duck if she turns into a beautiful woman to help out a downtrodden old clothier and marries him, but once he sees her weave the cloth, she flies away...cue Decemberists song....

    @NYR - I really like those boots with the white pants. I actually prefer them with the white over most of the other colors they've been paired with recently. Perfect combo with that hoodie also. Nice.

    more understated plain white sneakers and a white shirt would help tie it together. otherwise, the blue blazer and royal blue chinos look is pretty good.



    I like this quite a bit. It's trad but not stodgy. I usually unbutton one more shirt button for easy-going, louche effect.

    They are great and they really work here. Epaulet rivet chinos are now officially my favourite trousers. I have the green ones they did in a melton fabric last year. I wish I had more of them, but I can only really justify buying them when they are at sale prices.

    I hear that...but as far as the chinos go, these may be the best around. The have a nice silhouette, well made, AMERICAN made (which is important to me) so I don't mind paying a bit more for them, especially when rare colorways pop up. The duck cloth is astoundingly tough.

    Thx bro :fistbump: Agreed on the second button, but at work one must be careful not to overlouche.

    Camo and orthopedic shoes on the other hand are totally work appropriate.

    She died so that Rob could feed his Epaulet addiction. I'll bet you wish you hadn't asked.

    Nice kids, NYR. My girly thinks they're adorable.

    I was totally going to buy those exact sneaks the other week, I think. Where are yours from?
