    SDot, I don't think the sneaks always look good in those circumstances, but I think it does here. Must be these particular sneakers.

    Comment




      @Shomas Agreed. I don't wear sneakers always. When I said I was a "sneakerhead" I was just implying that I will never NOT wear sneakers. All sneakers can not be pulled off with a blazer, so I agree with you there.

        @Alan..


        That burgundy blazer is outstanding. I've been drooling over a similarly colored one in the Indochino Deco collection...

          J.Crew Ludlow blazer

          LEC OCBD

          Thrifted tie

          Macy's tie bar

          LEC cords

          Ball watch

          The tie and cords are less clashy in real life than under my bathroom's fluorescents. The tie is a burgundy pin-dot and the cords are a tobacco brown.

            @BenR: why you always gotta look so good man!


            @BB: Love the colors! I think it would love better with a V-Neck sweater tho

              @BB the guy at the top of this page on the SF WIWT thread happened to go for a zip up under a SC, and he wasnt met by a lynch mob, therefore I think youre okay :P

                @BenR: Fresh! The LEC cords - are those the slim or straight? 508, 5 pocket, 528? Looks like a good fit, and I have been contemplating the 508s. nice work!


                I will opt out on a pic of myself - I am working from home today....

                  @BB I wear a zip pullover under stuff all the time, and it looks alright. I think the trick is to layer a button-down underneath to keep it from being too casual, and pick something that looks as nice as possible (like you have there). But I think that casual touch with the rest of the formality works really well, and is something I enjoy doing. It helps you look put-together in a very laisse-faire way; dressed nice, but still approachable due to the casual piece.

                    Thanks for the feedback, guys. In the future I think I'll do something like what Focuspants linked to -- wearing it with a more casual blazer with the collar popped (and jeans.) I'll do the v-neck with the suits from now on. I have never popped a collar before, but I think with a sweater under a blazer it doesn't look so bad.


                    JR, the shirt is a Tommy Hilfiger slim -- I got it at Marshall's.

                      @ j.r. - These were the vintage slim fits from last fall. Not the 5-pocket style. This pair fits me pretty well but LEC fit and sizing is all over the map.

                        @BenR don't agree with the tie bar. The waistcoat performs the duty of holding the tie down, so the tie bar is not needed IMO. Otherwise, two looks are nice.

                          Long time reader, first time WIWT poster. Forgive the horrible lighting.


                          Trying the mostly blue outfit today:

                          Shirt: JCP OCBD

                          Sweater: Merona

                          Jeans: Levis 501

                          Belt (not pictured): Costco

                          Socks: Merona

                          Shoes: JM Runnell

                          Watch: Timex w/ Marshalls strap


                          The sweater is not as billowy in the midsection as it appears here; I call it a trick of the crappy cell phone camera.
