I think you're on the right track; that one is more in the jeans level of formality. I like penny loafers, but prefer something with a lower vamp than that style. +1 on not digging the two-tone.

I know Cole Haan doesn't get much love around here (and rightfully so), but I really like this style. I can only presume that, at their $475 retail price, they are significanly better constructed than CH's normal lines of shoes (probably not up to Alden or AE standards, but good). The price at Gilt.com is $228. http://cdn2.gilt.com/images/share/up...g?4_1232046989 http://www.gilt.com/s/colemen/product/9528355 Here's the description of the same shoe in the oxford...

As it is, it's taking over a week (!) to get to CA. My guess is...

I fail to see a huge distinction if the item is equivalent in every single respect except for the fact that it was not purchased at the store (which does seem odd and objectionable at first). The issue isn't that there will be an inferior item returned; it's that the item was...

If it rains, consider a waterproof pullover in lieu of the cotton sweater. If you dress up, you will look like a douche and you will make it harder to see (because sometimes you've gotta kneel). This is what I'd wear. Comfort is key. Don't forget sunblock; you'll be out in the sun for a very...

I picked up a Hickey Freeman sportshirt ($39), two HF chinos ($39 each), and a Filippa K chino ($59). I'm currently in weight loss mode and thought those were good prices for pants I might only wear for a few months. What can I expect as far as fit and quality on the chinos, both HF and Filippa K?
I'll be a dissenting vote. I think, overall, the fit is good, but believe it is 1-2" too short.
