Would this shirt.....



....look alright with this jacket (charcoal herringbone SC from BB)

I support this combo. The Dalton's would look good with the rugged fabrics.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Had a sit down with parents to talk about this and that
Potential business venture ... a trip to korea to meet with some people to make it happen...
And how I might do the cross country job hopping in the next several months
Surprisingly they were okay with all of it

i have yet another dumb old-guy-clothes question:
i like to wear my dress pants like i wear my jeans: low on the waist. i find this doesnt work for the dress pants i own because theyre not built to be worn like that, and as such, the crotch of the pants hangs too low and restricts movement. also, it just plain looks sorta sloppy. are there companies that make dress/business casual pants to accommodate my style of dress, or am i just plain dressing wrong and should pull up my pants?

also, would it be possible to get my dress pants tailored to fit my low-waist style? i wouldnt mind paying about $10-15 to get my pants altered.

You can find trousers with a shorter rise. They will be more fashion-forward though with slimmer legs.

I got my first pair of Bonobos pants (chinos) last week and they are great so far. Their dress pants look even better.


If you buy something from them, let me know.....I've got a friends & family coupon that will get you $25 off any purchase of $75 or more.

paul smith are on the lower rise side without looking too fashion forward. you can even try H&M... the quality will such but you can wear them for a month and throw them away they are so cheap.

though the correct answer is just pull up your pants.

Truth

Stop sagging your dress pants
And no, you cannot alter pants to be lower rise
Well maybe you can but it would be quite an ordeal... better off buying new pants

Maybe google "low rise men's dress pants" or something like that. Although I would normally agree with everyone that you should just wear your pants at your natural waist, that's not necessarily the style of the moment. Give some low-rise pants a try and see how they look on you.

Bonobos has physical presence? Is that the company that nordstrom bought or something?

They have a few "Guideshops" but I think only in NYC, LA and Chicago.

Outside of that they are carried on a limited basis in Nordstrom stores.
