    I'd advise against this because this is just what everyone else is doing at the moment and it doesn't work IMO. If you're going to wear chinos with them, make sure they're not a bog standard beige pair; dark blue might work, you could also try some more colourful ones. Dark jeans are your best bet however.
    Blue chambray shirt, blue trousers, and blue vans would be a bit of blue overkill imo

    Not if they're different but complimentary shades. All-blue can go either way tbh, you can either look bland or great.

    New Zegna suits (old season though) for £350-£450 and new Cheaney shoes for £175. Is there anywhere cheaper and would people say that was worth the price.

    I had a quick look on Style Forum (a step I always take if I have not heard of a particular make of clothing or shoe) and both of them get amazing reviews there. Having had a quick google, I'd say that is a brilliant price. Selfridges are selling some Cheaney shoes for £250 (I did see some being sold for £150 but I don't remember what style they were), and if I recall correctly, the Zegna suits go for just short of £1000, and often more.

    Here is the link to a thread on Cheaney at SF.

    I already know of the quality of both thanks I was more asking if people had found then cheaper anywhere else or if there is a sort of lower line of Cheaney which is why they would be so cheap.

    Ah. Got it now. I had no idea, so it was a nice lesson for me!

    From what I understand, Cheaney were purchased by a company linked to Church's sometime back. I would guess that they would be comparable with them?

    I think they might do a slightly cheaper range but my attempted Google searches have been of little help. Sorry I can't help more; I'm still learning a lot about some labels... :ashamed:

    The Cheaneys are definitely worth it at that price. As for the Zegna suits, they're worth it if they're the mainline stuff.

    Church was bought by the company that owns Gucci. The quality has been erroded since then but with the discount I could still see them being worth it.

    There is a store in Liverpool called 'Cricket' which is normally where the WAGs in Liverpool go but it has a massive amount of old season Zegna stock!
    The Cheaney stuff (as well as Allen Edmonds) is from some store opposite Cricket in Cavern Walks (Liverpool).

    It is the Ermenegildo Zegna range just a couple of seasons old.

    Does anyone know how tight-fitting the shorts in H&M are? I want to get the chino shorts and I'm around 33 or 34.. I want to buy online for the discount but I don't really have the time to go the nearest mens H&M shop.

    Also how tight-fitting are the singlets? I'm probably a small or medium in most places.

    Thanks in advance.

    I just bought a pair from H&M and I'm a size 32...they're a little tight around the erm...package area but they fit perfectly for me.

    I'm looking for a couple of new polo shirts, nothing overly expensive as my budget is limited, and nothing with a massive logo branding. These look good to me, but I've never heard of the branding and was wondering if anyone knew of any decent alternatives to this kind of style?
