So the advice I'm getting out of here is to buy a barely worn or never worn shoe. Secondary to...
Quote: I have been looking for clothing that can work both with in a formal and very casual setting as I work as a janitor and it is simply not practical or desirable to show up in a charcoal suit. So I want clothing that is simple looking but still nice enough to be dressed up. You mention working as a janitor. Presumably, you are looking for a shoe that you can wear to work as well as one that will look nice for social activities. You may want to...

And I may pick me up a pair o' them spiffy Wilberts. AEP

They also do MTM (and perhaps bespoke) suits and shirts, so I would think their in-house tailor could do button...

A lot of those suggested seem rather busy on the face. I was under the impression that the OP was looking for something uncluttered. I assume the OP has looked at the Movado Museum watch and the like (though generally well below his price range, they are about the sleekest face design around). Perhaps something like this would answer: AEP Edit: FYI that is the Zenith Legacy, and comes in other color combinations.

You are not required by Ebay to list the inseam of pants. However, if the pants on a 38L suit have been hemmed to 27" you should list it in your auction or...
I guess it depends on what your purpose is in buying the suit. If the blue JAB looks bad, then by all means replace it with a better looking blue HF. Or, if your principal goal is to upgrade your suit collection, then replacing the JAB with the HF would be a good step in that direction. But if the JAB looks fine, I think you should keep it. You only wear a suit 3-4 times a year, and you already have 2 suits. So, each gets worn about 2x per year. That's pretty light...
Here's a question: I picked up a pair of AEs recently at SA. They're in good shape but they have the damn price written on the leather sole in what appears to be marker. Anyone have experience removing such things? I don't want to ruin the soles, but I also don't want to walk around with the price visible whenever I cross my leg. Or take a step. Thanks, AEP
