I really like their stuff actually, I got a hoodie, a longsleeve in burnt design and a V-neck in smoked design. Feels so nice and soft !

anyone know how dsquared jeans fit? saw a pair of regular fit online in size 30. Do they fit bigger or smaller? is the material really rough and hard? I'm usually size 31 in jeans and debating over this pair of size 30.

anyone have suggestions on dress socks for work? black, grey, argyle, whatever.

I find that all my dress socks keep getting holes right by the shin/heel, so maybe something cheaper in price and in multi packs.

thanks

I just order 3 pairs of these, they look to be good quality and aren't plain and dull, but are a lil'bit pricey at $15 a pair.

Mens Socks |Gifts | Striped - Vivarati.com

I've have a couple pairs of these for when I need plain black dress socks, they seem to be good quality but I don't wear them all that often. Decently priced for dress socks at $10 a pair.

Viccel Natural Quality

I gotta ask.

What do you guys think of athletic shoes with casual wear?
As in when you see people in nice jeans, nice shirt, nice jacket, and all of a sudden, they have a pair of Nike trainers on.

This always bugs me for some reason. Maybe I'm just crazy. But... to each their own.. I guess.

if you're wearing casual clothing, i think you can pull of some types of athletic shoes.
for example some casual new balance shoes can be pulled off with a button down and casual chinos.
if you're talking about cross trainers (running shoes), then no, its a bad look.

Runners just don't work. I saw a guy wearing a dress shirt + trousers yesterday. The shoes he was wearing: Vibram Five Fingers.

Certain athletic shoes can work, however. Like the New Balance 574:




Or Nike Frees/Lunarglides on a techwear fit.

To me, it's like anything else in fashion...

A single item completely juxtaposed to the overall style will look misplaced and odd. If you can work an athletic look into another area of the outfit then it has potential. If you were a fan of the show, recall that Dr. House always wore athletic shoes, denim, a partially unbuttoned button down, and sport coat, which to my eye worked well because of the exposed t-shirt.

I'm also guilty of what most consider a serious faux pas, I used to routinely pair athletic shoes with a suit, but I made it work, and not just to my eye, I used to always get random compliments on it from well-dressed people. In general though, athletic shoes with a suit looks like complete rubbish.

So, overall, I think it's one of those things that's hard to pull off, but possible.

just my opinion but nah, dont like it.

See while I don't think it looks too baaad, a nice pair of brown or black oxfords would look 5x better.

Dr. House was never wearing trainers, it was always Nike SB's. lol

It went well with his "don't-give-a-fuck" personality. His essential style was just a button down and sportcoat over your everyday jeans and t-shirt.
