No, no. Don't bother hinting at your country, much less at what style clothing you prefer. We don't need those sorts of details. I cannot think of any one online retailer, from whom I'd recommend buying any and all types of clothing from socks and underwear, to chinos, to neckties, to shirts, to suits and sportscoats, and just for good measure let's include winter coats, shoes, and athletic wear. All at reasonable prices, and with an easy return policy. Brooks probably...
You may very possibly be over-thinking the matter. Then again, you may well get labeled by your interviewer. But the one thing which is certain is that without knowing relevant details about the company, its location, how people dress there, the specific job you want, and your interviewer(s), it's virtually impossible to meaningfully answer your "Okay to wear a pocket square?" question. Still, just as a general piece of advice, I'd submit that a final interview for a job...
And this is the one, key fact in all you wrote.You normally wear a size 8. These are a size 7. Therefore, while it's possible they'll fit you, chances are they'll be a little too small.If issues of outer sole measurements and half inch differences permit you to convince yourself that maybe it'll work, so be it. But the smart money would bet on you winding up with shoes which are just a little too tight.And life's too short to put up with uncomfortable shoes.
Don't doubt it. It's entirely possible for a good quality half canvas suit to drape and fit well, and for a mediocre full canvas suit to drape and fit poorly.But your tailor's claim that a full canvas suit will be stiffer than half canvas, and will fit and drape better than full canvas, should certainly not be regarded as a general truth.
Meaning no offense, but perhaps the Boys' or Ladies' department at some retailers?Or maybe you could buy a somewhat longer belt and have it cut down.Me, I wore a Beltmaster dress strap (no holes) today. But I don't know what Beltmaster's minimum size is (and I'm sure no 27-28", myself).
It's about as difficult as tying shoe laces. A little tricky when just starting out, but it soon becomes second nature.I'm sure there are videos on YouTube which could walk you (and your husband, since it wouldn't do him any harm to learn to tie his own tie) step-by-step through the process.It's a black tie ball, so just go nice and conservative. No orange tie with little purple snowmen and a red LED that blinks in honor of Rudolph's nose. If you've a favorite designer,...
"KEEP THE QUALITY UP," and "PROUDLY MADE IN THE U.S.A..," and "INTEGRITY HONOR TRADITION."Almost seems like HF is trying too hard with this label. True quality can afford to speak softly; it needn't shout.
While I truly don't disagree with you about the look in question, many men would be willing to wear an ugly outfit in order to support a close friend or relative at his wedding.After all, over the years countless women have put up with wearing hideous bridesmaids' dresses.But I agree that politely declining an invitation to be included in the wedding party is always an option. I don't know that I'd do so out of distaste for the clothing, but I nearly did so once because I...
I suspect that whatever you're told about this umbrella's place on the masculine/feminine spectrum, there will remain at least a small voice in the back of your head which will suggest to you that you look a little off, carrying around that umbrella.And if you have a little voice in your head, whispering to you that something you're wearing (or an accessory you're using - umbrella, pen, briefcase, etc.) isn't quite right, you're just not going to be totally comfortable...
So take the shoes in question to someone who shines shoes professionally and who has a reputation for doing a good job. And let the pro fix it. Explain to the guy exactly what the problem is. Show it to him. Explain what you would ideally like the shoes to look like when you pick them up. Look at his face, and see if he nods up and down, as if he understands what you're saying to him.If he gets the shoes looking the way you want them, see to it you not only pay him, but...
