    looks off with the cuffs behind the tongue/vamp of the loafers though... I think it would look better covering that up

    I love you, bro, but those pants look ridiculous to me in this context. Please refrain from wearing them unless you're out hunting for ducks or Al-Queada.

    Not at all...a few reasons actually, but primarily my working conditions have changed drastically this year. I teach in a public school in Brooklyn, and due to cuts, our class sizes exploded from ~30 to ~40 per class now. More desks and more kids in rooms constructed to hold 20-25 means more chance to snag, rip, and tear...especially when cuts also impact the equipment we have (old desks, chairs, etc). In September I snagged two pair of bespoke pants (one on a chair, and one on a nail on a broken bookshelf) so I needed to find something more sturdy, that I wouldn't flip out if something happened to.

    I've also reached a point where I have pretty much all I need, and can be VERY selective with what I get done now. As long as my body doesn't change too much, I'm set for a while.

    What context? Camo is used in tons of streetwear gear, especially since last fall...

    it seems camo is totally appropriate for teaching in a Bklyn PS... much closer to warfare than many of us will ever get! (I mean that respectfully NYR.... my mother used to teach in a city PS and I know it's far from easy...)

    What's more, a lot of men's clothes have their origins in military uniform, or have been influenced by them. Khakis, anyone?

    Yes, this jacket is similar to the M65 . I bought it a couple of years ago at ASOS.com.
    I remember that the price was very low.

    sorry for the low quality pic but i feel weird if i don't post for a few days, am i addicted to style forum? wore this on a sunday with my lady. not pictured light grey suede chukkas. have a good sunday folks. P.S., I don't want to shell out for a grey suede belt, any casual belt suggestions that would go well with them? I would appreciate it. I wear mostly madras and casual OCBDs with my casual chino fits. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I wear mostly suede chukkas or wingtips with casual fits unless jeans.
