    I like plain canvas sneakers for summer but all white doesn't look right to me.I went with Seavees in navy for this summer.

    Instead of all white, I'd probably do something like this:

    ^ I love the shoes. I think charcoal slacks would have been a better choice here, however.

    well, i can see where are you coming from. imo, it's a casual look with relaxed trousers and boots and the shirt fits well from the picture...

    I don't get MC's fascination with senior citizen sneakers.

    I can't disagree with that statement.

    I know it man, but I'm pulling for the Rangers so I hope to see a huge, fluffy, crazy beard after it's all said and done.

    Maybe try Charles Tyrwhitt tailored fit? I just got some in and these are the first shirts I've ever had that don't need tailoring. The last two auditions were Brooks Brothers Slim (OK in chest and shoulders but the shoulder seams hang just barely off mine and the waist needs to be taken in) and Costco's Kirkland "Slim Fit" (slim, my ass).

    I had to send my very first CT shirt back to get an additional inch in the sleeves on the replacement but these in 16.5/35 are pretty much dead on for me. 6', 180 lbs, 41.5 chest 31 waist.
