    @Jordan Well, Bond ignores that rule anyways. He wears brown shoes several times in Quantum of Solace with a black belt and black jacket. Tune it however you feel works for you, though. I just really like his crisp and clean, casual looks.

    Thanks Ben. I may get a pair in gray.

    I normally wear 7.5 or 8 (kind of in between). I sometimes size down to 7 for large winter boots and sandals. AEO doesn't have 7.5 as an option so I sized down to 7 to wear them sockless or with thin socks, and they aren't too small. I'd say they run somewhere between true to size and 1/2 size big. If in doubt, I'd size down.

    Hey BenR. A little off topic, but how did those canvas shoes from AEO fit you? Are they true to size?

    The rule about brown and black is generally restricted to matching leathers. So, for example, if you're wearing a pair of brown shoes, you should wear a brown belt as well. But it's perfectly acceptable to mix brown leather and black textiles (black leather with brown textiles is a little harder to pull off, but can also be done).

    brown shoes with a black polo?


    Doesn't that violate cardinal fashion rules or am i living in the past?

    @Jordan


    While at university (the leather is much more of a hot caramel in person, much nicer than in that picture in my opinion). Sort of inspired by the leather Purcell boots he wore in the Madagascar scenes of Casino Royale. A sneaker/leather boot hybrid:

    And out and about in public (not this brand, but I have heard good things about this pair and they are almost a dupe for the pair in Quantum of Solace). Chucks or another boot type would be good, too:

    @greg: I can't take a pic of it right now, but it's similar to the blazer this guy is wearing

    mine might be a slightly lighter shade of blue.

    @BenR, haha that is one accurate synopsis. If I weren't finally getting AC and if the Twin Cities weren't so damn fantastic, I would flee the temp extremes in a heartbeat.


    @lax, what shade of blue? I'm assuming the rather light blue that comes to mind when someone says blue seersucker? Is it a solid color jacket?

    Shorts, chinos, light denim, polos, short-sleeve button downs, v-necks, flip-flops, loafers, and yes the occasional tank-top.

    Nothing really changes in my wardrobe since Oregon summers are usually mild save for a few days it reaches 90+. Most of us in Portland don't have AC in our homes. Since wearing shorts is a rarity for me, I tend to go loud with embroidered critter shorts.

    Very true. I did buy a pair of Kenneth Cole linen pants for cheap a couple years ago that I wore in Aruba and they were nice to have. Maybe someday I will get a nice summer suit.

    @runner: A linen or linen blend suit would work equally well in keeping you cool, and is for a lot of people to pull off. They're definitely day-wear, though (unless you're at the beach).

    I went to an outdoor summer wedding a couple years ago and I wish I had a seersucker suit to wear to it since it was about 90 degrees out. Instead I had to sweat in my wool suit.
