Yeah, I have five pairs of shoes. Which I think is a pretty good number. I have two pairs of nice/dress shoes (brown and black), two pairs of tennis shoes (one for wearing day to day and the other for when I'm actually doing something active), a pair of sandals (flip/flops) because they are comfortable and easy to slip on and off. You can get away with just the dress shoes, if you're never planning on ever doing anything active.

Even I have several pairs of shoes. Granted they are mostly boots but I have dressy boots, boots for walking, boots for going to gigs, boots for playing gigs, boots for casual days. Footwear is important, people may not notice that I wear the same pair of jeans every day but sooner or later they'll notice my shoes.

For formal occasions you just polish the boots.

I know how you feel, zerodrone. About a year ago now I shaved my head because of a terrible haircut. I'd taken to wearing my boots, boot cut jeans, and vests at the time.

I've got a really nice pair of dickies that I wear for work, but honestly they're just khaki pants. I'm just curious if I should wear them outside of work.

I don't know why, but every pair of khaki pants I have ever worn makes me look short and stumpy. Jeans are never the same way! I don't get it. This is probably why I don't like them very much. I only wear them when they are part of a work uniform.

Strangely, I have the opposite experience with khakis/jeans. I've always really liked the way I look in khakis, and I have a hard time finding jeans in the right size for me.

I need a good black belt, like the kind I could wear to a job interview/work. What would be cool?

I have honestly never seen anyone wearing khakis and not thought "What a complete toolbag" or "Oh, he must be on break from work".

There's just something inherently awful about them.

Khakis are awesome! I love them for reasons of comfy and quick-dry-ey (which is actually why i started wearing them lots, due to the occasional "we need a watersample from the middle of the stream" situation. Wading suits are just to much of a hassle)

Only place where i actually wouldnt wear them, would be work. (unless it would ential a lot of fieldwork ofcourse)

What are you wearing for pants? Khakis epitomize the evil capitalist regime, you fool.

I really, really doubt that copyright would hold up in any court. For the red star, anyway. It's been in widespread public use since the early 1900's.

When I lived in Toronto the girl I was living with gave me a black leather jacket that she claimed was the kind that French police detectives wear.  It's basically the most rad jacket I own, and I own a lot of jackets.  HOWEVER!  I have literally worn it out so that several parts of it are now held together by safety pins.

It's punk as fuck, dude.

I'll take a picture later.

F that noise. Everyone should have multiple pairs of shoes to choose from. If every outfit you wear can be complimented by only one pair of shoes you are doing it wrong.
Say what? Almost everything goes well with black, I have one pair of pants that doesn't look good tucked in to my 10" paratrooper boots, so I wear that pair outside of the boots. Other than that, I have jeans, blue slacks, dull green slacks, various T-shirts, some of which don't look so good, but most of those don't look good no matter what. Then, I have my duster and my Flecktarn jacket. I have a pair of brown boots that I regret buying, because they don't hold the ankle as well as I thought they did at first, and a pair of dark brown slip-on shoes that still fit decently, maybe they are called loafers? Not really sure, they are what I would wear if I had to be somewhat formal. If I had a choice, though, I would just wear my boots without tucking the pants in to them, but I would have to polish them first, I was crawling around in a machine room and scuffed them on the concrete floor, and haven't gotten around to re-polishing them yet.
