Advice needed.

I currently wear these boots with these jeans.

Wondering if there are any opinions about these shoes with these jeans.

Offdee has already chimed in with his opinion on the shoes and he isn't a fan. Still interested in hearing a verdict on that combo.

If you're into the big boot/combat boot look than steer away from the bulky construction boot and more towards something like these..

I don't really like those shoes. This is no help whatsoever, but I don't really know why. There's just a frumpy kind of look to them. Again, I know this isn't much help.

No one can see the Caterpillar logo on my boots, so I don't think anyone would know the difference.

Jeez guy. Those boots all make you look a little dainty.

I think a pair of Timberland or any kind of construction like boot are fine with jeans. They make you look like a man and not a priss.

I think the no laces one look a little more current but that's just personal preference....the Purcell/Varvatos are nice but I don't see much of a difference to pay the premium. I'm not much of a Converse guy though. Really the only brand of major label sneakers I buy are Adidas Stan Smith or Rod Lavers. Edited by Major

Not a fan. Just seems stupid. If you want slip ons, wear slip ons http://www.zappos.com/product/7213526/color/184118 But low cut Chucks are a classic shoe that were meant to have laces. Wearing them with no laces and just the eyelets exposed just seems ridiculous. I'm sure there are some celebrities and other people that wear them that way. Just not a fan.

I think the main issue with the original Caterpillar boots pic above and these is the thick sole and very distinct "teeth" cutouts on the sole. Just makes them look too bulky and heavy and like old skool Doc Martens. A more streamlined and simple sole is the key for boots IMO.

I have steel toed boots, too. One day, I was working outside without them, and dropped a cement bench top right on my toe. Small fracture in the toe. Needless to say, I wear them when I work all the time now.

I am not a huge Doc Marten fan, but man, it is an insult to anything punk rock or 90's grunge like, to compare those two.

While a little old, most of the points still ring true: esquire's laws of casual style

1. When in doubt: a white oxford shirt.2. That being said, it wouldn’t kill you to mix things up every once in a while. Pinstripe shirts are good. Windowpane, too.3. Blue gingham. Trust us.4. The closest a man should ever come to touching denim shorts is helping a woman out of them.5. There is a name for men who can pull off wearing sports jerseys. They’re called professional athletes.6. “I’m on vacation” has never been a good excuse for anything, including doing body shots, ignoring intelligence warnings about possible terrorist attacks, and wearing whatever you damn well please.illustration of man in rugby shirtOlivier Kugler7. A rugby shirt is the most masculine thing a man can wear.8. The 1950s and 60s were the high points of casual. Everything before and after was hit-or-miss.9. Fitted is good. Snug is dicey. Tight is just wrong.10. Hemp clothes are great. If you want to smoke them.11. Khaki pants will look and feel their best approximately two weeks before disintegrating.illustration of man with opinionated t-shirtOlivier Kugler12. The man who imparts opinions via T-shirt has neither the intelligence to form a cogent opinion nor the good sense to keep it to himself.13. Small holes in jeans? Kind of cool. Small holes in sweaters? Pathetic.14. Justin Timberlake doesn’t look quite as good as he thinks he does.15. When purchasing jeans, leave the acid, stone, and other artificial washes to the good people of Eastern Europe. The best way to break in a pair of jeans is to wear them as often as you can.16. The shinier the shine or the pointier the point, the less casual the shoe.17. A discreet paint or grass stain conveys a sense of lived-in comfort. The same cannot be said for stains from food, dirt, wine, or bodily fluids. That’s just gross.18. Denim is the center of the casual universe. And some things look better with it than others. A quick primer:All the Time:	Cotton button-down or T-shirt, brown loafers, navy-blue blazer, cashmere sweater.Most of the Time:	Crewneck sweatshirt, black loafers, tweed jacket, cotton turtleneck, white sneakers.Only Sometimes:	Hooded sweatshirt, high-top sneakers, sports jersey.Only Under Duress:	Waistcoat, silk shirt, flip-flops, necktie.Only Under Penalty of Death:	Cufflinks, suspenders, opera cape.19. Everything looks better with age. Except for white T-shirts. Those look best new.20. The Professor was the best-dressed man on Gilligan’s Island, followed by Gilligan, Thurston Howell III, and the Skipper. Oh, and for what it’s worth, Ginger. By God, Ginger.21. There is nothing so wrong with one’s appearance that can’t be improved, however slightly, by tucking in one’s shirt and standing up straight.22. Always tuck: polo and dress shirts that hang below your hip. Never tuck: sweaters and turtlenecks. Everything else is negotiable.illustration of man in cowboy hat and suitOlivier Kugler23. Articles of clothing that you can dress up: polo shirts, khaki shorts, blue jeans, white sneakers, and, for Texans, cowboy hats and boots.24. Articles that you can never dress up: sports jerseys, track pants, wifebeaters, Birkenstocks, and flip-flops.25. The only ribbed items a man should wear are socks and condoms, and he best not confuse the two.26. A $40 pair of jeans can fit you just as well and look just as good as a $200 pair. They’ll just take a whole lot longer for you to find.27. Cotton is the universal language of casual clothing. Wear it anywhere and you’ll fit right in.28. Sweatpants are for sick days, couch surfing, and light exercise. For anything else, throw on a pair of jeans and get on with it.29. Athletes inspire the best sneakers. Pair the shoe with the icon who made it famous.comparison of men's sneakersJ Muckle/Studio DANSWERS: 1-C, 2-A, 3-F, 4-B, 5-D, 6-E.From left to right: Adidas ($100), Converse ($50), Converse ($42), Adidas ($60), Vans ($40), Nike ($115).30. Velour: no.31. Never wear more than two denim items at a time. Scratch that: Never wear more than one denim item at a time, and make sure it’s not a vest.32. Michael Bastian. Tim Hamilton. Adam Kimmel. Learn these names, for they are the future of American men’s wear.33. To our knowledge, tank drivers never wore tank tops. If they did, we might like them better.34. Khaki is a color. Chinos are a pair of pants. Know the difference but feel free to use the terms interchangeably.35. Any man who plays contact sports while wearing a watch he values -- formal, sport, or diving -- deserves exactly what’s coming to him.36. Leather watch straps.37. The more expensive a restaurant’s entrées, the less comfortable you will feel in jeans. Unless, of course, you could buy the restaurant, in which case you can get away with anything you want.38. Tennis and baseball are the most influential sports on American style. Discuss.Tennis: Lacoste polo shirts, Rod Laver and Stan Smith sneakers, tennis sweatersBaseball: Brimmed caps, three-quarter-length shirt sleeves, flip-up sunglassesBasketball: High-top sneakers, mesh shortsFootball: XXXL everythingBoxing: Boxer shortsillustration of man in a suit wearing flip-flopsOlivier Kugler39. No one you work with should ever see your toes or your nipples. Please dress accordingly.40. Remove the brass buttons from your store-bought sport coat and replace them with buttons from a fancy golf club. It will annoy the hell out of the club’s (real) members.41. The button fly is:a) total bull####.b) the latest battle in the decades-old war between the all-powerful zipper and button industries.c) a way to avoid tearing up your johnson.d) all of the above.(Answer: c)42. Animals make the best logos. Match the logo with the brand.comparison of embroidered animals from men's shirtsJ Muckle/Studio DA. Polo; B. Penguin; C. Lacoste; D. Brooks Brothers; E. American Eagle; F. Vineyard VinesANSWERS: 1-C, 2-E, 3-D, 4-F, 5-A, 6-B.43. For bomber jackets, brown; for biker jackets, black. Deviate at your own peril.44. Dress not like Kanye West. That goes for you, too, Kanye.45. Before you buy a cashmere sweater, touch the fabric and then rub your fingers together. If it imparts any residue or feels slippery, that’s a sure sign of bad or even fake cashmere. That and the forty-nine-dollar price tag.46. There’s a 74 percent chance that a man who isn’t wearing socks isn’t wearing underwear, either. Both endeavors attract the same kind of man.47. Don’t borrow any clothes from that man.48. The best jeans have five pockets. The best khakis have four. Anything more or less and you’re asking for trouble. Oh, and 1998 called: It wants its cargo pants back.49. Unless you’re wading into water or modeling for a catalog, there’s never a right time to roll up your pants.illustration of mario batali wearing crocsOlivier Kugler50. Unless he’s a chef, a gardener, or a jolly fat man from Holland, no one should ever wear clogs in his daily life. Same goes for Crocs.51. Speaking of: We’re not sure what Americans did to deserve Crocs, but whatever it was, we’re sorry. We’re really, really sorry.52. If you see the words “Barbecue,” “Come as you are,” “Bring the kids,”or “BYO” on an invitation, dress casually. When in doubt, bring a navy-blue blazer.53. Or a cardigan. A cardigan works, too. (See page 171.)54. The greater the number of exclamation points on an invitation, the more casual you can dress.55. Unless he's headed to a black-tie wedding, a man always has options.	DaytimeBarbecue	SummerCocktailParty 	Drinkingin a Bar 	HolidayPartyGood 	Khaki chinos, polo shirt, brown loafers 	Cotton chinos, crisp oxford button-down, blue wool blazer 	Light-blue jeans, button-down shirt 	Corduroy pants, crewneck sweaterBetter 	Red or blue chinos, short-sleeved rugby shirt, white canvas sneakers 	Linen trousers, rumpled oxford button-down, seersucker blazer 	Dark-blue jeans, long-sleeved rugby shirt 	Flannel trousers, turtleneck, cardigan sweaterNever 	Cargo shorts, tank top, flip-flops, lifeguard whistle 	Jeans or shorts, bright madras blazer 	Sweatpants, sports jersey 	Anything depicting Rudolph, Santa, or the Baby Jesus56. Even casual style demands good shoes. But not all shoes are equally casual.men's shoes from most to least casualJ Muckle/Studio DFlip-flops ($108) by Coach, Sneakers ($75) by Puma, Suede driving shoes ($325) by Tod’s, Suede desert boots ($94) by Clarks Originals, Suede shoes ($130) by Johnston & Murphy, Leather loafers ($365) by Cole Haan.57. Unless you’re wearing a blazer, there’s no wrong time to roll up your sleeves. How high you choose to roll them says a lot about you.illustration of how to roll up one's sleevesOlivier Kugler58. The solid blue button-down shirt is the Jay Leno of American style.59. There are worse things in the world than being known as the guy who always wears a blue button-down. Like being known as the guy who looks like he just rolled out of bed or the guy who always smells a little funny. If you’re going to settle on a look, get it right.60. The baseball cap is America’s greatest contribution to headwear. Runner-up: the cowboy hat.61. Berets: no. Not in Paris, France, and especially not in Paris, Texas.62. The overlap between active sportswear and casual party attire should be kept to an absolute minimum. Leave the neon shirts and pants for the links, the white tennis shorts to the courts, and the swimsuit at the pool.63. There’s no harm in letting yourself go, so long as you’re never more than an hour away from pulling yourself together.64. A hood knocks ten years off your age and twenty points off your IQ.65. Sunglasses don’t belong on top of your head, folded into the neck of your shirt, or hanging around your neck by some nylon cord. If you have to remove them, hold them or put them on a table.66. A man of style never discusses the cost of his clothing, even if that fourteen-dollar sweater was a total steal.67. We’re all for comfort. Just make sure the damn thing fits.68. If you’re on the shorter side, vertical pinstripes help stretch out your legs.69. There’s not a whole lot of room for irony or imitation in style. The best-dressed men always dress like themselves.

What about crocs? They're ok for something sport specific when you need a closed toe shoe that'll be in an out of water. Or kitchen clogs for a chef. They're about as fashionable as cleats. :)J

Hey guys

As the weather gets cooler as we approach the fall season I wanted to know what you all thought about the sweatshirt look (particularly making it short sleeve)? Is it still in? I want to remain warm and stay in style. I've seen some celebrities pull it off.

BB out and about

Thoughts?

Was in the market for a new suit (GB's wedding coming up) with some extra detailing such as a ticket pocket, double vents, skinnier lapels, etc. and was having trouble finding all of these things for a reasonable price in stores. Stumbled across the below website, looked into what they offered and decided to pull the trigger and see what happened.

Suit arrived yesterday and I have to say I'm very pleasently surprised. Custom made suit tailored specifically to my measurements with all of the details I wanted and only ended up costing around $370 (3 piece suit, included the vest) with the look and feel of a suit that would be triple the price in stores.

Was in my hands 2 weeks after I placed the order and pretty happy with the end product. I need to get the jacket taken in just a bit in the waist to get that perfect custom tailored look, but the place reimburses up to $75 in any add'l tailoring needed after the fact to guarantee satisfaction.

Solid thumbs up recommendation.

And the quality is good? What's the catch? How are they doing it for 1/3 the price of competitors?

Because it's located in Hong Kong and they likely pay the tailor 35 cents and hour. :lmao:I got myself a tailored suit from Hong Kong (different company and not as much play with the ticket pocket and double vents and what not). It only cost me 130 bucks I think.I a not a huge suit guy. I love a good looking suit, but I only wear them 7 or 8 times a year. To my untrained eye, the suit was just fine. It needed some additional tailoring, but most suits do.

Is this the equivalent of the $30 jeans? If not, why not?J

Quality seems very nice. Nice fabric, quality stitching, etc. I was in Chicago 2 weekends ago and browsing thru $1,500 name brand suits and this looks and feels the same other than the tag stitched on the inside jacket.

There is no catch....made the order and had the suit in 2 weeks and already see the $360 charge on my credit card ($10 for shipping and no tax)

It looks like they take your measurements and have it sewn up in China so I guess that is how they do it so cheaply. Some good background info here...
