    great summer style here.

    Thanks. I'm a big fan of chucks - they were about all I wore on my feet for my late teens through late 20's (and I'm happy to deploy them for some old school style).

    Kent Wang, as far as I know, is just some dude from Texas who decided to start selling pocket squares and cuff links a few years ago, then slowly expanded into ties, dress shirts, polos, shoes...
    These polos are slim, made of a nice soft pique and have the only collars I've ever seen that avoid getting curled and misshapen without assistance from polo stays or something. They're a little pricey but it's not hard to see where that money goes.

    Nice get-ups, BTW. Way to rock that team cap! Lookin' good, cap'n!
    Thanks, Yoyo. Sorry about the Tigers... But what's more American than some summer baseball? I'm surprised I don't see more of it on this site, but I suppose trying to looked dapper while rocking team apparel is pretty challenging.

    Recently rediscovered Chucks myself. I picked up some white Superga's this spring but they almost felt too "nice," not street enough. Then this weekend I happened to spy some Converse low-top Chucks in natural (with the red and navy piping), and I had to have them. I don't think there's anything more classic for summer than either black or white (or off-white) Chucks with chinos and a polo.

    Thanks! I was surprised to find it at JCF.

    I picked it up from the store in gilroy on Memorial Day weekend. They have a few things that I've not seen online. Lots if Thompson suiting as well.

    This is the belt I'm wearing:

    Yeah, I really struggled (briefly) with the black vs brown thing, but eventually just said eff it. Not a *lot* of brown leather on the belt anyway - just the ends/tips - and the Sperrys leathers are a beige, a grey and what they call black (looks like a very dark navy to me, but OK... "black"), so that kinda tied into the black and grey of the watch, I guess. Matchy without being all *matchy*-matchy, I guess I'd say.

    Thanks, bruschetta. That particular WIWT Creed is Aventus - my all-time favorite scent, and one which I have been nudging Paul to try next. He's been auditioning Green Irish Tweed (GIT), my second favorite.

    "G.C.G.?" - Let's kill that one, please, before it grows any real legs, eh? Ha! - I mean, look, I'm totally at peace with my age - seeing how I feel (and often *act*) like a much younger twerp... err... kid - well, all except for my lower-back - that definitely says to me in it's best Roger Murtaugh voice "I'm too old for this sh#t" - but I'd really prefer just dialing it back to "Cologne Guy" for now. LOL - Good stuff though, guys.

    No worries. Win some, lose some. The Tigers are a pretty sweet team, but they sure know how to let ya down when they want to - ya'know like getting swept in the WS - stuff like that. LOL - And I hear ya, man: Summer. Baseball. Good stuff. Throw in a BBQ and some poolside drinks and we're talking some *real* good stuff.

    And yeah, supporting your team(s) whilst attempting to maintain dapperdliness (probably not a real word, but wtf - I like it) can certainly be tricky. I think Joe had some good article(s) about it a while back, mostly talking football then, IIRC hitting some Saturday college football games, or more likely probably Super Bowl party related, dunno - maybe both. There might've been some of that same discussion here in our threads - seems like that might be right too. Best to either go team colors but in *your* typical, hopefully stylish, wardrobe choices. Throwing on a team baseball cap is totally fair game in my book, though. Especially is it's a cool retro one.

    Good to know. I'll have to keep those in mind. Quite a few of my polos, especially the pointier-collared ones like my Original Penguin jobbies, tend to do the inward/under-curl on the ends. Not a good look. Any good source for the KW polos? Or should I just get my google-fu on?

    I checked out some Supergas last week at a local Brooks Brothers shop - loving the toe shape/design - only to find that they were not Made in Italy. The Italian-made ones are the real deals - the ones to get, right? Or do they just simply no longer make them there? If not, that's sad - very much like our present-day Chucks - not made in the USA any more. Ugh.

    BTW, welcome back, Duvel. You've been out of action here for a little while, no?

    The only place I know of to get them is from the man himself: www.kentwang.com/polos

    I think there was a livingsocial or groupon or somesuch deal for Kent Wang credit a while back, but I think he's a pretty small operation so I wouldn't count on that coming back soon. I will say that shipping has always been very quick when I've ordered stuff from him.
