  Thanks, I'll look them up.     HB has an 8" drop. Their 34" waist is more true to size and fits me well. Though, as previously mentioned, I can be a 32" waist in other brands. 
  My issue with Suit Supply is their drop. They have a 6" drop. I'm a 42R and a 32-24" in the waist... Without the option to pick waist size, I'm left with a 36" waist which is up to 4" too big.

Good luck
Anyone know the proper way so I don't ruin my new shoes?   Best advice would be just to wear them around the house to break them in. This will allow them to form to your foot, better than any bending might do. Good luck.

Try J. Crew; they have a suit line that is more work/ play than strictly work... with different fabrics and unique prints that can be business enough to wear in the office and casual enough to take to the streets. It sounds like you have enough dress shirts, though might I recommend some button downs. These can be worn unbuttoned or with tie, if need be. Look into a few cardigans and v-neck sweaters that can be worn to work for the winter days (i.e. over a button down,...
