Like others, I suggest you wear whatever you want. Don't spend too much money on it.   I'd also suggest that you not be "that guy." I.e. don't be the person who always wears a tie, aka "tie guy." Don't be the person who always wears tie-dye, aka "tie-dye guy." Don't be the person who always wears ridiculously short shorts, aka "short short guy." Don't be the guy who always wears a fedora, aka "hat guy."   There's nothing wrong with wearing what other people wear,...
Thankfully shipping to the US only takes a few days once the order has actually been placed!
So far, assuming I can read correctly, the majority of respondents have advocated keeping a pen not in their shirt pocket, but in their interior jacket pen pocket. Wouldn't it be worse for a leaking pen to damage a jacket than a shirt? What's to prevent that from happening?
I kind of like these ballpoint Caran d'Ache pens; they're cheap:     I keep red, green, and blue in my bag, so it's always a surprise which color I grab. Just kidding, I always nonchalantly pick the one that best coordinates with what I'm wearing.

Start reading here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/151480/kent-wang-affiliate-thread/750#post_5309027   Part of what is exceptional about the Kent Wang MTM suits (and shirts), as mentioned by wj4, is that they will send you a standard size (e.g. 34R) to try on with no expectation that you will keep it. Try it and send it back with your measurement tweaks and customization requests. For the same price as the standard sizes. I think it's pretty incredible.
Another high-quality, low-cost alternative: http://www.kentwang.com/about/suits/   $650 for a fully canvassed MTM suit from Kent Wang.
I've been trying out the Saphir Cordovan Cream to compare to Renovateur. More details when I have a chance to do a more thorough shine with it, but my first impressions are that the cordovan cream imparts a "harder", more superficial-looking sheen, whereas the Reno brings out a deeper glow. That said, I wear my shell boots in the rain all the time, and the shine from the cordovan cream stands up to rain (and can be brought back after being rained on) significantly better...
