with anything other than the accompanying suit trousers is a pretty big no.
Rocked a grey pinstripe with some salmon chinos and a white/grey striped t-shirt today. Looked pretty good I reckon.
It is all about exuding confidence.
xylo's new account, right? I can't keep up
gotta get a sort of unstructured linen-y blazer with only 2 or 1 buttons, probably navy or charcoal colour, wear with a plain t shirt or a simple pattern like stripes, chinos MUST be khaki in colour and be traditional in cut, nothing approaching 'slim fit'. The baggier the better in fact. You will wear a pair of simple canvas shoes, again in either white, navy or charcoal. What you're trying to achieve is 'ww2 US navy on shore leave at french riviera.'
Do this and you'll be as cool as me (⌐■_■)
gotta get a sort of functional, technical jacket with a detachable hood, probably navy or a similarly dark colour, wear with an indie rock band tshirt, in any colour, combat trousers MUST be khaki in colour and be traditional in cut, with at least 10 pockets - the more the better in fact. You will wear a pair of simple canvas vans, again in either white, navy or charcoal. . What you're trying to achieve is 'dayshift poster on a day off.'
Charcoal/grey fitted (or 'skinny) blazer with one button, but salmon chinos. blue boat shoes though, yeah.
if accompanied by a pair of boat shoes
