    Anyone who's been paying the least bit of attention will have noticed by now that I'm practically living in my Kent Wang polos this summer.

    I'm not normally one to tuck in polos, but if I were , here's the belt you'd have seen.

    I think it would look better tucked-in. You'd look neater and trimmer.

    i disagree about tucking in the polos. in a casual setting, it always looks strange to me, like guys who tuck in hawaiian shirts.

    When I do this I sometimes wear black pebble Thom chukkas and slightly more taper on the denim. I worry, though, that the shine of the boots is TOO fancy for the denim, even when paired with the shirt and blazer. Most of me thinks denim can only be dressed up very carefully and most of the time looks off.

    The Svenssons don't look blindingly-white in most lighting - they're really more of an off-white. They're also very comfortable.

    Man, I've been thinking about giving Everlane a shot recently. How do you like their tees?

    The fit can be hit-and-miss. This watercolor tee fits better (for me) than some of Everlane's first iterations, but the fit still isn't perfect. The ringspun cotton is super-comfy though, and the construction is above-average. They're only $15 a shirt, and you get free shipping if you order two or more items, so you really don't have a lot to lose.
