Me too. Most times I wear a pocket square it's a simple one

I tend to agree, except I like to wear a white square with a white shirt.

Definitely. I really like his cufflinks as well. I picked up this pair.


For anyone interested the top two pocket squares are Kent Wang's and I think shipping is free in the US

I have a pair in brown. They're sleek and awesome, but if you're looking for a rugged boot, this one's probably not it. Great boots regardless.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

Yeah, I'll have to see them in person but I really like the style. If they are too dressy then I might return them for the Frye Brando.

Any belt recommendations? The ALD belts seem nice.

I was looking at this, but had a hard time deciding on a pair.

What do you think of this "skinny" pair?

http://www.7forallmankind.com/Slimmy...68/p/1593.html

The advice I was given on designer jeans was "avoid relaxed, bootcut, and any other weird fit."

I'm not a huge fan of the "pre-ripped" look, but it's not awful I guess.

I actually kind of like the look of these:
http://www.7forallmankind.com/Flynt_...68/p/2303.html

But they are boot-cut.

Thoughts?

Boot cut is fine. I hate the pre-distressed look.

Any suggestions for designer jeans for someone with no ass at all?

It sounds like low-rise might work ok. Here are some recommendations from style forum, but I have no idea which are good:

http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=25223
http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=22039

Here are the recommendations from those threads:
Nudie Svens
Earnest Sewn Fultons
Slim Jims
Jean Paul Da'mage Jeans
APC New Standards
PBJ XX-005
Bootcut Ola
Studio-D'Artisan D1002
John Bull SC007
Rag & Bone RB6
Diesel Ravix
Diesel Zathan
7FAM Bootcuts in the Dark New York wash

A little overwhelming, not sure which I'd want.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

The ES Fultons would probably be a safe pick in terms of cut. You can sometimes find them on sale for under $100.

5EP Low down boots would be good for you too.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I dont think bootcut is a weird fit. it can be slimming for a bigger guy like me, as long as the jeans fit well in the thigh/ass area.

I think some pre-distressing is fine, when it looks the jeans aren't brand new, etc

I got Bootcut in Melbourne. I don't like the upper thigh distressing on the Dusseldorf, the huge contrast on the Big Sur, the rips on Havana, etc

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I have not paid attention to fashionable dress shoes until recently. I have browsed through the thread trying to see what is a decent looking brown loafer. I am thinking about getting this shoe:

What do you guys think?

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

Its hard as a standalone as I have to project my style onto the shoe in question. But its fine. I like it. I'd wear it.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

Thank you guys for the opinions. I think I am with you Manque that the toes are kind of ugly.

I found this one too: http://www.johnstonmurphy.com/produc...=641&pid=62539 I can't really tell if it has that too shiny look, which would be worn by older gentlemen. I am mainly looking for a shoe I can wear to work (business casual) and that I can wear to salsa dancing classes. If the shoes I picked are no good, does anyone have suggestions?

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

What kind of dress shirt would you recommend for going out to a nightclub? I have a few old plain dress shirts but haven't bought anything new recently. Anything new in style? I'm in Canada if that helps at all with stores/places to look.

Depends on what look you are going for. I am pretty conservative and will just rock jeans with a normal stripped or checked dress shirt.

If you are looking for club type shirts though, there are a ton of brands that have the shiny looking shirts without the additional length in front and back that are designed to be worn untucked to clubs.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I need a few recs for nice jeans that would work for me. I do a lot of weight lifting and squating and from that I have a pretty big ass and some thick thighs, which obv makes it harder to find nice jeans. A brand that I typically buy is something like buffalo, as I have found some of their lines to fit me decently without smashing my boys around or feeling like im wearing tights. Is there anything else that someone in my situation or so would be able to recommend?

Btw, I'm 6'0 and have a 34" waist if that helps at all.

Re: EDF Fashion (and Fashion Deals) Thread

I was 6'5" and 220 and wear a 36" or 38" waist and was 245 a year ago. I have a pair of the relaxed dark wash selvage jean that I absolutely love for the $100 price.

Edit: Looks like the jean isn't available anymore, but I do recommend BR for cheap, fit big legs and relatively stylish.

The shiny look comes from it being corrected grain leather. It's an inferior leather and tends not to age well. The fact that they charge over $200 for that shoe is outragous.

Is there a good resource to learn about the different types of leather in shoes?

Not sure about this, but for great non-custom shoes check out Alden's and as a second choice Allen Edmunds. More expensive initially, but I have had leather ones for 4 years with 3 resolings and the total cost per wear is less than "cheaper" shoes. I don't own any cordovan pairs, but my Dad has a 20 year old pair that have been resoled 5 times and still look great.
