    Some details:
    Massimo Dutti slim fit blue shirt
    Hugo Boss Parker summer grade wool trousers. It's a bluish grey
    Bexley black oxfords
    A festina watch and a black leather belt


    The fit is great! I think brown shoes would be better for this combo. Any specific reason to wear black?

    I've gotten pretty bored with WAYWRN fits, so most of my fits these days tend to be casual more than anything else.. Here are a few examples of some recent ones:

    Thanks.
    The reason is just a lack of nice brown shoes at this time.

    It may just be that you've got your hands in your pockets, but it appears that this jacket may be way too short for you, gnatty.

    Bit of both. It's cut shorter, but I think that's perfectly fine for a casual jacket.

    This older fit of yours is seriously bugging me. I need to DTO it asap:

    All of your fits are awesome. Also, you were the last straw that made me buy my first bow-tie.

    I'm with Fuuma on this. Too many of these separate threads.

    I tend to agree.

    Actually, when this thread was first made, I thought it was a tongue and cheek reaction to the backlash against jacketless fits in the regular WAYWRN thread. I didn't imagine it was totally in earnest.
