        It's been ages since I posted a WIWT. It's a drizzly day in the 30s here in College Station, hence the wool tweed, flannel pants and rubber-soled chukkas. Also, wanted to dress up a bit since Tuesday's my Monday (I work Sunday & get Mondays off); it helps me get moving.





        Jacket: JCF
        Shirt: CT
        Tie: Nautica
        Square: LEC
        Pants: BR
        Socks: Target
        Shoes: AE

          I like your shirt/tie combo!

            Great fit on that JCF blazer BJ... I received that one for Christmas and love it.

            I'm guessing those are the AE Maverns too? How do you like them compared with the Amok? I just picked up the Amoks in tan suede on close out and really like the unstructured feel. I'm going to haven eyes out for a pair of Malverns though... Probably in a darker brown suede like you have. I would like a structured chukka with a rubber sole. I've heard that they run narrow and cause some pain... Did you buy your typical size, or go one wider? Thanks!

              Thanks.

              And yes, these are the Malverns. I have the those same Amoks in 9.5D and these Malverns are 10D. The Malverns are definitely sturdier and a bit more formal than the Amoks, given their structure. I have a little room in the toe, but not much. If I were you I would either size up half a size or go up in width.

                Great, thanks for the info. I'm a 9.5D typically in AE also, so that was very helpful.

                  Get the Malverns! I love them. I'm a size 10D in them but I typically wear 9.5D. I probably could have gone down but I'm pretty happy as is with the fit.

                  Also, Alan and bjmcgeever: Great job! I think the colors are a biiiit matchy w/ the PS and tie there bjmcgeever but honestly it looks really good!

                    Hey where's my critique

                      Jake, I can't get past the green shoes. I don't know whether they're a wonder or a blasphemy.

                      I think that the green shoes are too much when paired with the green shirt. I like either item on its own.

                        There we go. It's what I needed to hear.

                          Yeah, that's what I was thinking too.

                            Same blazer as Alan today! Tried to wear some things that aren't among my favorites, not sure how it turned out:

                            More accurate colors: https://www.dropbox.com/s/n2t3brh3ovk0vgy/IMAG1884.jpg
                            Pants:


                            Jacket: Land's End - on the fence about selling this since the fit isn't perfect (had to get a 40R bc they were out of 38R)
                            Shirt: Nordstrom Rack
                            Tie: Cutlass and Moore ancient madder (thrift) - not in love w/ the pattern but it's kind of wintery.
                            PS: J Crew
                            Pants: Corneliani for RL
                            Shoes: C&J brown punch toe oxfords for RL

                            (yeah, I wear bals w/ trousers with or without an odd jacket, though usually with)

                              The jacket may not be a "perfect" fit, but it looks good on you. Of course if you do decide to unload it - hit me up!

                              Overall a good look - not sure about the pocket square, but tough to make out the details in those pics. Would like to see the shoes!

                                Nice jacket! ;-) And you can't mention those shoes and then not show them.
