    Dressed for 80 degree weather today....





    JC jacket, shirt (short-sleeved), and shoes, LE chinos and belt, GMT Master IIc.
    Liking those longwings a lot, I've been thinking about getting some blue suede for the summer -- thoughts on them? They look like these: https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/...8423/B8423.jsp but maybe an earlier iteration with red rubber soles?

      These are the Kenton suede wingtips I got on sale for $65 last year, so they are a bit different than the Ludlow (no metal eyelets, for one thing). I'm not into expensive shoes the way some people here are so I don't know how these compare with the big boys, but IMO J.Crew makes really nice suede shoes if you can get them at a good sale price. These ones were comfortable out of the box, have a nice classic buck shape that's chunky but not too chunky, and the suede quality seems decent.

        If I recall correctly, this particular shirt was only last year, but they have plenty of other subtly patterned aloha shirts (I have a grey one I love). Their slim fit is aces for warm weather, just slim enough but doesn't restrict airflow.

          Thanks, makes sense. I'm not sure I want to spend $300 on blue suede shoes, but $65 sounds awesome. I actually prefer the red rubber to the leather sole, too.

            The Ludlow shoes are frequently on sale, usually 30% off, if not more. Never pay full price for them.

                How are you liking Aldo? I've been real tempted by several of their models recently.

                    It's technically their 'standard fit', FWIW.

                        Finally breaking out this navy glen plaid suit I got a little while back. Hard to capture in pictures but rather nice in real life. I realized I don't really have many ties that go with it really well, other than burgundy, particularly that are solids and don't mesh poorly with the pattern. May grab a chocolate brown or orange/rust color grenadine tie to change things up.

                          I have 3 Aldo shoes - this, a pebbled leather dress boot and a Mr. B tan wingtip boots.
                          I find their quality good for the price I pay, as I usually get them on sale.
                          Most Aldo shoes are made in china, but I always look out for the ones that are still made in Portugal.

                            Good to know. I've got some time before the wedding so I'll try and catch a pair on sale then

                              Slightly more formal WIWT today. It's chilly today so I can get away with a sweater.




                              Mock neck: American Eagle (thrifted and just a little bit too big)
                              Shirt: CT slim fit Herringbone Fleck. I'm a little disappointed in their revamped slim, but I can't complain too much considering that I got it for $19 (off of $110. This fabric is crazy awesome).
                              Tie: Stafford. I know paisley's not 'in', but I dig it. I have one in purple and grey as well.
                              Pants: Levi's 513 in tumbled rigid.
                              Shoes: The almighty Dr. Martens.

                              Thoughts, as always, are appreciated.

                                Lots of different levels of formality here. Was there a certain reason you dressed this way today?
