    Yup, my mistake, thought I saw a toe cap and laces. Looks like they've been well-loved.

    You were partially right - mine are a vintage model that actually do have toe caps (but no laces). The photo I posted is not of my particular pair; I just stole that image to illustrate their most distinctive feature.

    As for being well-loved, I'm sure they were well-loved by the real soldier who owned them before they were bought by me, the guy who just dresses like one on occasion.

    Would have gone with a different colored undershirt. Navy Blue doesn't match anything in your outfit.

    Hmmm, I think that a complementary color would have been too much. I think that a constrasting shirt was called for. Personally, with this outfit, I agree that the primary color was not the best of choices. I would have gone with, say, a wine or teal shirt instead...

    What about something light? A turquoise or something similarly light would have been my choice. But then that's how world wars are started. Over undershirt colours. [​IMG]

    Turqoise would work.

    Thanks for the props and the points, guys. I agree a contrasting-color shirt is better than a matching one in this case - while the outfit was supposed to be military-influenced, it's still not supposed to be literally a uniform. I'm lacking in having a variety of basic tees right now, but I plan to move towards wearing more unprinted shirts. In fact, I've been wearing some of my printed ones inside out for that purpose. When I want something more interesting I'll pick up some of Jay Allen's product (just put in my first order a few days ago). There doesn't seem to be much point in getting any others when his are both cheaper and have more going on than 99% of the competition.

    Which did you get? Rising sun and Star would both look awesome with that outfit.

    Actually, I wasn't thinking of this particular outfit when I ordered - I ended up choosing Jester because I think the color scheme is one of the most versatile out of all of Jay's designs. I also want to make sure of the fit before I order more, but I definitely plan on picking up Rising Sun, Star, and Crucifix at the very least.
