Good going out combo?

Discussion in 'Lifestyle' started by coughlin's law, Jul 24, 2009.

  1. So lately I've been thinking, a lot of people going out usually wear a lot of black, with black shoes... but I've thought of something that's a little bit different...

    A white dress shirt, sleeves rolled and untucked
    Skinny black tie
    Dark denim
    Navy socks
    Grey Van's Slip ons

    And probably an accessory like a bracelet (small)

    :dunno:

    And I think the whole look would look a lot better with some well worn black wing tips. Vans and a tie is like saying "I'm not trying hard and don't want it to look like I'm trying hard, but I really am trying hard"

    navy socks :rofl:

    your pants will be too long to even notice such (boring) detail
    if we were talking about dress pants/socks, that entails another story...

    I think the only time it's acceptable to put on the skinny tie when you've got a jeans & sneakers outfit on is if you are younger than 24 and in a band, and you've this outfit on to play a show and not just hanging out. Otherwise it looks very lame.

    that kind of look is acceptable if you're going for a grungy sort of look

    i def wouldn't rock anything like that if i were over the age of 23. Get some nicer shoes, & tuck the shirt in.

    Why would you wear socks with slip-ons?
