Speaking of red. I've been trying to hunt down this jacket online

Ben Sherman Fireman Clip Micro Wax Canvas Jacket | Ben Sherman (http://www.bensherman.com/jumpers-and-jackets/fireman-clip-micro-wax-canvas-jacket-1.html - broken link)

Nowhere to be found in the States.

And I'm over argyle sweaters.

What I mixed was a brooks brothers full sleeve white polo with pin-stripe collars, BB is good at this kind of clothing, where the collar stands out exquisitely. And on top of that a V-neck sweater from Macy's, it was complementary:
Alfani Sweater, Diamond V Neck - Black Friday Specials - Men's - Macy's

It's the flint heather colour and it was quite cheap when I picked it up and it's even cheaper now for black friday.

For pants, I found this chinos type of pants in nordstrom, which almost looks like a khakhi pants, but is not, perfectly lines my thighs in trim fit fashion and sits nice atop my shoes. The best part about this pants is that it still has some gap around the legs and it's not too trim where it looks like the leggings which girls wear. Straight fit is a much better term.

And I'm rotating two shoes regularly, all winter. A cole haan and the bahama from sperry.
Cole Haan. Air Quincy Lace Oxford

The oil plaid canvas one:
Sperry Top-Sider - Men's Bahama

I found a much better version in Lord and Taylor, but it looks similar.

Also picked up a straight fit mock corduroy pants from levi, which is like dark green. And I'm mulling investing on these two, the deal expires today and this will look awesome in my collection, particularly when spring and summer come up where I can mix them over my shorts

LONG SLEEVE SMALL LION POLO at Express

If I have to buy, I'll pick up the blue and red. Red always looks good on the antler man!

Who else is on a buying spree?
This is whats IN you to you, or whats in PERIOD??

Chamy, Have you got a really great pair of a warm-tan colored leather dress shoes? I love those on men. Dark suit with tan dress shoes. Not everyone can pull it off (they usually get the wrong color) but when they are great shoes? Yes!

p.s. I trust you keep your shoes in great shape. I hate to see a guy in nice clothes but scuffy shoes. Especially if they are leather and need a good shine.

I took some quick pictures. Not sure what you mean by tan, I guess lighter brown? These are one of the brown shoes I have. I do polish them every day, but they get dusty real quick in the city. No escaping that. There's dirt everywhere.

I dunno why the pants look lighter, they are actually darker than that, must be my phone. I snapped this late at work, it was somewhat dark and my phone does flash, must explain the brightness in the dark pants. I was bored

Anyway, one of my best shoes. Fits my leg like a glove, very easy for fast movement. Johnston Murphy never goes wrong. One of my best pairs of socks.

Great shoes. Pretty much what I was talking about. Nice socks.

You know, Chamy, if someone had told me 20 years ago that I'd be looking a pictures of some guy's shoes and socks and giving him advice I'd have said it was time for them to put the pipe down.

It's the internet, Dew. Anything's possible now. 20 years ago you couldn't have predicted the internet, nobody did

Recently I've been drawing attention to my feet with weird socks designs, like the one up there, they still look good with my dress shoes. If only I could get that vintage argyle pattern stitched, it would be freaking awesome.

I have a business lunch tomorrow and I need to perfect my look and pick the right combo items, head to feet. Two women, one of them is my boss
