Oy. I work with a poor refugee from the Congo, and I couldn't imagine standing next to him wearing those shoes. Feels like the shoes would just trumpet out at full blast, "This guy's a materialistic dick!"

- Not a fan of the black ones....just too "soccery" for me.

- Other two are solid. For the Asics I'd swap out the neon yellow shoelace though to something more neutral (white, black or a matching grey)

The black Samba get a full style endorsement. It's timeless and masculine, without being fussy. GQ worthy.

The other two are fashionable, but neither is stylish. Which is fine, and has its place, but don't confuse the two.

Going to a wedding this weekend on some golf course in Georgia. Attire for the rehearsal dinner tonight is "sport coat and golf shirt".

Am thinking of dressing the BF in a simple white golf shirt, navy sport coat and khakis, but wondered if any of you other Southern gents have pulled off the look with stripes, colors, etc.

I've never really dug that combo. The only time I think it looks good to wear a sport coat over a golf shirt is if you win the Masters. I think a regular button-up shirt looks better.

summer shoes ordered, now, talk to me about sunglasses.

These may not work for everyone but I lean the same way in my sunglasses as I do my shoes - timeless and classic. I'm too old to pull off something too wild. I love sunglasses and this year I'm going with http://www.zappos.com/ray-ban-2132-new-way...ck-g-15xlt-lens Note the original Wayfarers are HUGE glasses. On lots of people they're too big. These 52's work much better for me. I've got a normal sized face.

And then these http://www.zappos.com/ray-ban-3025-aviator...-polarized-55mm

Pleased with both.

I buy sneakers all the time. I only buy new sunglasses when I get tired of the look or they get lost. I'd say main thing is get a classic pair of sunglasses that fit your face well and are polarized. I've been wearing these (with dark brown tint) the past two years. Love them: Paul Smith Spectacles

I bought 2 pair of sneakers this year for casual wear before vacation, first time in 2-3 years.

My sunglasses I'm sure are out of style but I spent 100 on them 7 years ago so I still wear them only.

They are arnette, polarized ;)

$780 for Khakis?? Good article in the NYT today about price and :style:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/29/fashion/...tml?ref=fashion

Why Does This Pair of Pants Cost $550?

By ERIC WILSON

Published: April 28, 2010

EVEN in a season when designers made no secret about reining in prices to appeal to the newly chastened luxury consumer, it is still possible to walk into a store and wonder what exactly they were thinking when a pair of khaki cotton pants — right there on the hanger, no special packaging or 3G plan or anything — can cost as much as an iPad.

Enlarge This Image

Tony Cenicola/The New York Times

HOW MUCH WOULD YOU PAY? There is a rationale for the price of Band of Outsiders khakis, but does it make sense?

Enlarge This Image

Firstview

CHECK OUT THE CUFFS Bottega Veneta cotton pants, $780.

Never mind that classic button-fly chinos at Abercrombie & Fitch cost $70 or that Gap sells “original khakis” for $44.50. The fact that luxury chinos exist — and in surprising numbers — is another story, one that illustrates the challenge faced by designers to justify the still sky-high prices of their clothes. A distinctive design might strengthen the argument, but is $550 really a fair price for basic pants?

How about $480, for plain khakis from Michael Bastian? Or $495 for light cotton twill pants from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen of The Row? Or $595 if they are by Giorgio Armani? Or $780 for ones with elasticized cuffs from Bottega Veneta? Or is $350, as Thom Browne charges for chinos, the right price? The range suggests that since the luxury bubble burst, designers have no clue what customers are willing to pay.

“The cost of creating those things has nothing to do with the price,” said David A. Aaker, the vice chairman of Prophet, a brand consulting firm. “It is all about who else is wearing them, who designed them and who is selling them.”

Yet, from the designers’ perspective, there is value to be found in pants that are thoughtfully designed with high-quality materials and labor. For new designers, like Scott Sternberg, whose Band of Outsiders label is largely defined by preppy basics that are studiously fitted and expensively priced, it costs more to make his clothes because they are often produced in small batches. His cotton gabardine khakis, sold at Bergdorf Goodman, cost $550.

“It sounds crazy to say this, I know, but our pants are a steal,” Mr. Sternberg said. To make his case, he gave a tour of the factory where they are made, Martin Greenfield in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where little has changed in the production of tailored clothing in a century.

A man was hovering over an 80-year-old contraption called a jump iron, hot enough to mold fabrics into shapes they will be unlikely to forget. Another man basted panels of suit fabric to springy canvas, which makes the garment more flexible. In a machine-made jacket, the canvas would be fused or glued into a suit.

Mr. Sternberg’s khakis are tailored like dress pants, and the details are largely sewn by hand, including buttonholes and split waistbands, which can be altered easily. The fabric, which costs $24 a yard, plus $3 a yard to import, is a cotton gabardine fine enough to withstand basting stitches. About two yards, counting for boo-boos and such, is used to make a pair of pants, so the fabric cost is $54.

At Martin Greenfield, a union shop where employees earn about $13 an hour, before benefits, it takes an average of four hours of labor to make a pair of pants. The pants pass through the hands of at least 20 people in the process of cutting fabric, adding pockets and building out a fly. So with labor and fabric, the cost to make Mr. Sternberg’s pants was about $110 — a fifth of what they cost in a store.

The final price reflects the markups of the designer and the retailer, what they charge to cover expenses, pay their employees and, with luck, make a profit on what sells to cover the losses on what does not. Mr. Sternberg doubles the cost to arrive at a wholesale price of $220. The retailer adds another markup, typically a factor of 2.5, which brings us to $550.

Is it too much?

Not if that’s what people are willing to pay, Mr. Aaker said. Jeffrey New York had some nice Gucci chinos with a tiny tab of red-and-green striped ribbon at the waistband for about $500. They sold out.

A machine might make pants more cheaply, Mr. Sternberg said, but for a designer who wants to be known for quality, what would be the value in that?

I don't care that a designer wants to charge $780 for pants. After all, if someone is stupid enough to pay that much, more power to them.

What's the ruling on mirrored aviators as opposed to regular dark lense aviators. I got a pair or mirrored ones last summer and haven't had a chance to wear them. Are they out of style already? Cuz I only see people with the dark leanses now.

Definitely comfortable. Great straight leg fit. The fit on the model is tight. Just size up if it's a problem.

Dark lenses are preferred, unless of course your nickname is Maverick then go with mirrored.

So I need to buy some new work shoes. I'm just in a business casual office wear button down and khakis every day. Is this style acceptable? http://www.footwearetc.com/Clarks/Mens-Bra...ed-Leather.html

That's the kind of shoe I like to wear but not sure if it's in or even really acceptable for an office since no one else seems to wear that kind. If this isnt' the way to go what are some suggestions? I don't want black shoes if I can help it since brown matches better with what I wear other than the shoes.

Those shoes have too much of a "workboot" type of feel to them due to the overly bulky sole. I'd suggest something a little more streamlined in a work environment. Like this...

Don't know if there's really a "name" for this shoe. To find those two images I just did a Google Image search and typed in "Men's brown dress shoes" and all kinds of visuals comes up. Went back and look and found places to purchase those two images below...
