I picked up a new suit, navy/brown plaid. The brown plaid is unnoticeable from more than a few feet, and even in bad light it just looks like a dark navy. I typically avoid black shoes with brown clothes, should I stick to that with the new suit? or does black go fine?
I walk about 6 miles a day as part of my job, mostly on concrete and asphalt and my shoes hold up just fine. I probably go through more soles and cleaner than most, but most of my shoes have held up just fine. I deal with dirt and stuff, but not bad weather, so that probably has a bit to do with it.
Anyone know a good source for a slimmer (1.5-2 inch) tweed (or tweed like) bowtie? I need one for an event coming up and can't find anything that's both slimmer and has the rougher texture I'm looking for except for a few at the tie bar that don't do anything for me.
I recently ordered a linen sportcoat and when it arrived it turns out it's fully lined (poly lining no less). I wanted something for spring and summer days (70s and 80s), is the full lining going to make it way too hot for my needs? Should I return it and find something at least half-lined?
Anyone have (or have seen) the Washington light blue plain linen suit? I'm looking for something I can wear as separates casually or together for a slightly more dressed up look. Anyone seen this and can say if the fabric/design works for it?
