Can't decide. In dark brown, at the shown prices.... 1. AE Fifth Ave, $279 http://www.allenedmonds.com/aeonline..._category_rn=0 2. Peal & Co. Captoe Bulcher, $187.20 http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...lor=Dark-brown I currently have no similar shoes, been looking for a standard brown dress shoe to wear with navy pants and suits. THANKS
Looking for OCBD shirts. I am open to all colors and brands. For sizing, I generally wear 15.5 to 16.5, with 34.5-35 sleeve length. For more context, I generally wear 40-41R coats. I do not want anything that is too roomy, but I do not need anything super slim either. BB slim fit works well for me. I am not interested in anything with holes or stains. THANKS

I am purchasing two shoes...both in some sort of darker brown, or color 8. 1. Workhorse, wear often, shoe for work. Likely a full-strap slip-on loafer or a wing tip bal. 2. I also will be purchasing a pair of boots. It is important that they do not have a leather sole, but other than that I haven't thought too much about what style boot. I was thinking originally of an Indy Boot by Alden (available in both calf and cordovan) or maybe a more stylish chelsea, chukka or...
Any idea? They say "Bench Made in Italy" on the inside. I do not own the shoes linked, but purchased a similar pair online for $45 http://www.webstore.com/499-Ralph-La...uction_details
For my dress pants (wool) I find that single pleat pants with a cuff look best on me. So two questions... 1. Where do you find decent single pleat pants at a reasonable (<$250) price? I have never been big into fancy pants so I have generally just gotten pants at Brooks Brothers...problem...they seem to only have flat front and double pleated pants. 2. Almost all the single pleat pants I have acquired thus far are parts of suits...is there some rule that...
