    What to wear with...

    this shorts I got:



    on my last vacation I found the attached shorts. The fabric is really classy; thick, soft and significant.
    However, I struggle with how to wear them.

    I already have Chuck Taylor'esque shoes in white and coincidentaly also in a (pants-) matching blue:

    Besides that I only have color-corresponding T-Shirts. But I don't thing those shorts should be worn with T-Shirts but buttoned shirts, hm?

    I'd spontaneously say: I'd need a white shirt. Right?

    - But should it be short or long sleeve?
    - Tucked in or left out?
    - Patterned or plain. I can't imagine a pattern that goes smoothly with the above print, I therefore would go on plain white, no?

    I hope you don't hate the shorts due to its printing and refuse helping me :-)

    What shoes, accessories, top, etc. would you guys recommend? I can't wait :-)

    Unfortunately my fashion sense is a bid crippled since I only just learned to take care about the way to dress myself a few ys ago, when I was living in England. Before that I just put on a xl statement shirt (too big) and a pair of worn out jeans (not too good fitting either) and pair it with sneakers. -.-

    You could wear a t-shirt with those shorts. However, if you're after a shirt, I'd go with white, a very lightweight material and in a grandad shirt style, sleeves rolled up, collar open, untucked.

    Would recommend COS for this.

    Hey Dorian,

    thx for your reply.

    So you think that trousers would work with a t-shirt or polo shirt, too?

    What does COS mean?

    A nice ecru / cream tee shirt or polo would look nice! Tucked out but needs to be well fitted

    I suspect this is the COS you're looking for.

    I have to say - that as much as I like some of the stuff I've ordered from COS - they are horrendously slow on processing returns and refunds. Not the quickest on delivery either - an order from JCrew (put in on the same day) arrived before a COS one. I sent both back on the same day. JCrew refunded within 2 weeks, COS still haven't processed the refund. That was well over 4 weeks ago.

    It's not the money that bothers me, but the fact that a company based in Europe is slower at delivering and returns processing than a company based halfway around the world. COS also charge 4 for returns... again, it's not the cost that's an issue, just the principal of it, especially as they also charge for delivery.

    In short - nice clothes, shit customer service.
