I’m not too happy about trashnessx' OCBD shirt collar:
not enough spread/tie space to wear the shirt with a tie
not enough collar point length for a great roll
Unfortunately, the shirt’s collar is nowhere close to the collars I got from Luxire recently.
Judge for yourself.
Sidenote: My socks are green as well.

Hi, I really enjoy your blog. You have an amazing style. Could you please give me an advice? I'm planning to buy a pair of double monk strap shoes but I usually see guys roll up their trousers when wearing them. Do you think it still looks good if I don't do so?

Answer:

Thanks! I’m happy you like my blog.

Yes, I do think it’s perfectly fine. Don’t fool yourself by giving too much attention to the Pitti-images, where everybody was wearing very shortly cut trousers. Some guys (e.g. the fashion industry) go with this trend, other guys don’t.

You will have to look at two things when it comes to the length of trousers and double monks (or shoes in general).

I wear double monks with suits or in combinations with dress pants and sportcoats. Some of my trousers have cuffs, some are without cuffs.

In my opinion, the first thing you should find out for yourself is which length/break of your trousers you prefer.

Personally, I don’t like a semi or full break much. This, for example, is (in my opinion) the perfect length for trousers: http://instagram.com/p/sLvDNdAcW5/ Knowing that I like this kind of length/break (or no break in this case), I would wear my trousers in the same length with all kinds of shoes. Thus, if all your trousers are longer than you like them, you have two choices (1) get them tailored accordingly or (2) roll them up. Adjusting your trousers’ length on suits and dress pants should be usual. This can also be done with jeans, chinos or other casual pants. However, I know this from myself: since I wear business or business casual outfits on 5-6 days per week, I’m often too lazy to bring my casual trousers to the tailor to shorten the legs. Thus, for my casual trousers, I just roll them up, if the legs are too long for my taste.

All in all, it sowewhat depends on which kind of trousers you are wearing: suit/dress pants or casual and also whether these pants are cuffed or not.  

This are another good examples for uncuffed trousers combined with double monks:

Here you have a good example for cuffed trousers with double monks:

Part II of yesterday’s outfit. When I came home from work, I asked my girlfriend to take a full shot of the outfit, because some of you asked about the fit of the trousers. So, here you go.

At the end of summer, I have finally decided to order two pairs of shoes from Meermin. One string loafer (shown above) and one pair of the MTO-group-orders. As this is my first pair of meermin-shoes, I haven’t had any experience regarding their fits and lasts. I’m extremely happy about how this RON-last fits.

Monday’s outfit. I really love this suit, but it required some last adjustments of the length of the left sleeve. My right shoulder is slighty higher than my left shoulder, so the left sleeve will be shortened by approximately 0,7 - 1,0 cm. I can’t wait for the final result!

Since it felt like fall yesterday, I decided to go for a wool tie.

The Luxire shirt is the fourth and last shirt of my recent order. It’s my favorite of all the shirts yet. The rather strong oxford fabric of the shirt just gives the perfect collar roll.
