    A warm, humid day with promise of thunderstorms later on - linen and "beater" shoes are the order of the day.

    Hey guys, this is my first attempt going sockless, sorry for bad picture.

    On the plus side holy shit 10 pound jeans. Shoes were discounted too, Loake Skipton got them for 50 pounds new. I don't usually wear these kinds of things so I thought I'd get some cheaper pieces a try first. My partner says I look like a Lounge Lizard whatever that means.

    You need a better belt than that, and preferably brown if not to match your shoes then at least to be in the same general colour range.

    Agree on the belt. I will say this though, those are perfect shoes for your first go at sockless. Shirt looks pretty cool, but I like one more roll on those sleeves...just my thing.

    Context matters. What look are you going for? That outfit has a certain "buy this used rolex from me" vibe to it. More tame pants, another button buttoned, no metallic sungies, etc, might moderate that vibe. If you want to look a little edgy/sleazy then fine. And for the usual critics of my criticism, I do consider this constructive criticism - if that's not what he's going for, it might be useful info. Edit: I've decided it's too much unbuttonedness.

    I am a usual critic of your criticism, but I think you're mostly on-point with this.

    If it's any indicator I didn't actually bring the sunglasses, and I buttoned an extra button before I leave the house, which I think means I agree completely, I just thought it was funny for the picture.

    On defense of the belt, it's the right shade I think just bad lighting. Got it from equusleather.

    More rain expected, with heat and humidity - another day without a suit.

    Nice casual look DonC. I would go with a mid-brown belt or blue woven.

    Nice, @DonCologne . I think I agree with Euro on the belt (although it's not a big deal), but the pants and shoes look great.

    From the other day:

    Very nice CD. I have a similar jacket by Barbour and am now feeling freshly inspired.

    Don, hope you're well. I love the taper in you MC pants, so very flattering. Please, please consider the same in your more formal stuff?

    I know flat front pants are sort of 'in' now but honestly I think that for guys (of all waist sizes) who have thicker thighs or backsides would really do well to have even a single pleat. When the pockets are flairing out and there are strong horizontal lines across the crotch area, it's a sign the pants might be too snug.

    of course it doesn't apply to jeans, or most khakies, etc, and yes, I even mean it for guys like me at size 28 waist, it's more about the body shape. DonC's fit is good and fine but blur your eyes and imagine a little more fabric and the whole upper block suddenly relaxes. (btw I like the belt choice, if it was dark brown like the shoes then it would have been too strong a contrast line, cutting you visually in half)
