Right, my goal is by this time next year have lost enough weight and gotten into good enough shape to drop three dimes on a really nice suit.  Afterward I plan on reenacting this scene everywhere I go:

Gob and his expensive suits


my friends and i were literally just watching this two days ago. love it

Of course, how else do you know if you have poor form or not?  I actually like admiring myself in the gym mirrors after a hardcore session of lifting heavy things up and down.  I get to see a slimmer me that's drenched in sweat instead of this disaster that was drenched in bacon grease and depression:

Does anyone have any recommendations for good, white kicks/shoes/sneakers/tennisshoes/whatever other name you wanna call them, that go good with jeans? I really can't wear my white new balance shoes because they're so hideous.

Oh yeah, I also got to rock a suit this weekend at a wedding I attended. Been awhile since I have worn one. They're dope. Swag.

why must they be white? mix it up a little. i used to be a one pair of plain sneakers kinda guy, then i bought a pair of brown skateboard looking shoes a couple years ago. changed my life. i probably buy two pairs a year to add to the collection. they dont really get messed up because i dont play in the mud anymore.

i kinda liked the skateboard looking shoes. now all the kids are into running shoes. New Balance are actually very popular, more so in the gray and black range as opposed to white.

if you really want to waste a ton of time on the internet, you can design your own shoes on the adidas website and buy them. pretty sure nike and reebok have it too.

As for suits and shirts, I plan to lose weight so I don't want to waste my money on designer stuff just yet. I think it would be a crime to have a $1000 suit taken in 2 inches like I just did with my Jos A Bank suit.

PAC 8)

Jos A Bank is nice though.  I like BB better, but I do have a couple Jos.  My one friend swears by that spot.

If you want to dress like a W.A.S.P. at least shop at J. Press or the Andover shop so you aren't wasting your money on a long dead name.

Off course you can and you will likely get the same amount of respect from Ivy League snobs as the guy wearing the off the rack Brooks Brother's suit. Granted when you are dressed like Blackie Lawless you obviously don't give a freak.

When you dress like Blackie Lawless with the circular saw blade crotched pants, it means you do give a freak.  A freak like a beast :lol:

When you show up to work in blackface, like I do, the clothes really don't matter.

I've been buying black shoes for pretty much my entire life. I'm not one to own a bunch of shoes. I'd just like to have a pair for wearing out and a pair for running/sports. I think white shoes would go well jeans and shorts which is pretty much my target.

This summer my wardrobe is going to be Bermuda shorts, American Apparel tee shirts, Swatch watches, and Chuck Taylors.  MLB authentic on-field hat optional.
