    Looks like a field jacket to me. Try your local Army/Navy surplus store.

    Thanks for the critique. Will keep it in mind! FWIW, I wore a similar (same shirt in dark blue, mustard/tan khakis and tan belt) outfit yesterday, but with C&J Edgware. So at least some improvement. :p

    They're Falke. I've bought them at Galeria Kaufhof, they're on sale at the moment (6€ instead of 12€, IIRC), FYI.

    Shirt is too poofy and looks like early 90's sizing. Wouldn't a traditional fit be more fitted? Traditionally affluent people would have shirts made for them to measure, and that is not how a MTM shirt would turn out. I am just speculating here, I didn't grow up in 1910.

    Some people like more volume, no problem with me. Can we focus on the fact that wearing shorts+loafers makes people look like child molesters? You guys really have to learn how to dress casually, this nonsense has got to stop, think of the children!

    If he was wearing suede chukkas hiding the socks that would be fine, c'mon, we don't need to shit on every look he posts or he won't learn when he's doing ok. He could fix his look by dressing like a Mod and getting a haircut.

    I wish I could get cool shoes. I have A width feet, so I am limited to traditional boots; loafers or boat shoes; and running shoes for casual wear. No designers or streetwear brands make narrow widths, that I'm aware of.

    Is this fucking slim enough? (Need to get the waist let out an inch--just undid the buttons, and covered with the belt. :p)

    Haha, I just noticed this; yes, you're right--I do need a haircut--I've been looking all day for a hairdressers, actually! (These pictures have featured unstyled hair.) I can't decide whether, to go short or have a forehead fringe. ...Thoughts? I have a pair of brown, suede chukkas; loafers are more comfortable for me in the summer, though.


    This is subjective subjectivism, though. (I love loafers and shorts.)

    Thanks....unfortunately the ones in the picture I quoted look way slimmer than the ones in the picture on epaulet's website....do you know which picture is a better representation of the pants true fit?

    I think both the Rivets as well as the Walts of Epaulet are slim, yet not skinny pants.
    They have a classic instead of fashionable cut.
    I have not done it to my Rivets, because I am happy with their fits around the legs, but as I understand it from the Epaulet thread (check the SW&D area) you can easily have them tapered in the leg and both let out as well as tightened in the waist and upper block by a tailor.
