I'd say wear things like button down shirts and khakis (or jeans if that's what you like), throw on a v-neck sweater for warmth, and swap out the button down for a polo to be a little more casual or put on a tie to be a little more formal. If you want to start dressing better, and you have the means and chutzpah to do it, then go for it. People will notice, and many will probably respect you for dressing well. As far as brands, I don't know your budget but LL Bean and...
+1Also, cords with thin wales are considered "dressier" than wide wale corduroy .
They may not be as common, but v-neck cable knit sweaters look fine. The classic "tennis sweater" is a v-neck cable knit sweater.
I agree that black khakis should never be worn unless you are a waiter but khakis and a blazer or sweater are acceptable for certain work environments. Not every job requires a suit, and khakis worn with a tie and blazer can be worn in certain offices, especially if your job observes a casual Friday. Where and when you wear khakis depends where you work and what your style is, in my opinion.
I will often wear an oxford cloth button down shirt with khaki pants, a tie, and a blazer or sweater.
Khaki pants are a casual pant, when worn with a dress shirt, tie, and jacket, or a nice shirt and sweater, they can help pull together a business casual look. The typical khaki pant colours are tan (khaki) and blue. Black khakis are what waiters wear, and they shouldn't really be worn by anyone else. Jeans are always a very casual even when worn with a jacket. Khakis are worn when you want to look a step up from jeans, but not as dressed up as a suit or dress pants.
If they are really black khaki pants, I'd return them and get a pair of blue khakis, Khakis are good pants to own, they can bridge the gap between jeans and a suit. Actually I almost always wear khakis for casual dressing.
Get a pair of corduroy pants with christmas trees embroidered on them and wear them with a tweed jacket. Unless it is a strictly suit and tie affair, then what you're planning sounds nice.
That sell out sort of ruins their cheeky upstart status. Of course most of the people buying the clothes don't really care who owns the company, but it does change my opinion.
I have a polo from VV that has held up pretty well, at least as well as my PRLs. Can't compare them to Lacoste or BB becuase the only polos I have from these places I haven't had very long.
