I love the Downtown Crossing FB, which is about to close for renovations. FB's in Newton is also good. The rest of the time I'm a confirmed Marshalls and TJ Maxx shopper....
Quote: Originally Posted by javyn I go low-end, high quantity; suits are from MW (gasp!) or KG. Shirts and shirt/tie combos are usually bought from ebay in lots. I've had both good and bad luck with that. True the quality on the shirts isn't great.... I'm a devoted eBayer myself, and like you, prefer low-price, high quantity. Instead of lots however, I like to get multiple shirts (2+) from a single seller where possible, preferably in...
Heyvryone, I am trying to organise a poll on wardrobe building practices, but instead of having one question with several options, I want at least 7 questions, each with their own options. Is this possible? The poll menu seems to indicate no, but I might not be looking into it deeply enough. These 7 questions ought to give people an idea of how people start building their wardrobes, what they start with or build around, what they base purchases on, what...
I agree with you, texas_jack, as well as the poster who said it could also be a driving moccasin. It is also good to read that people have genuinely tried to help the owner of said shoes, instead of harping on about how masculine/feminine they are. A little ribbing is to be expected, enjoyable even, for everyone (including the original poster), but what really keeps forums alive in the end is banter PLUS exchange of applicable info, and this place has both in droves.
Posters probably thought I was having the original poster on. Regrettably I was genuinely trying to help, hence the bit about not following their recommended pairings of clothes. Generally awful, but I found some things I'd buy and wear, like the combo I attached, which is something I'd wear, but not with those shoes. Someone posted a pic of gurkee rope sandals in a thread, as an embarassment. I quite like those, and being of darker complexion, it is easier for me to...
Please don't let this degenerate into poverty politics. No matter how low anyone goes in their personal spending, there will be many more people who will still live below the poverty line in your own state, let alone the rest of the world.

I didn't find that option in your poll Ta, mate, The thread will not survive, but the poll might stand on its own 2 feet, with properly considered choices. I will recreate it within the next couple of days, with a few more variants.

Price-wise, that is more than I'd be willing to pay, as it is almost $375 Aussie, and I got 2 pairs for $120 each, or about US$200. Again, it comes down to utility, and most people cannot tell the...
Quote: Originally Posted by instar I bought these shoes because they were my size, a decent brand, and certainly cheap. I like the shoes, but when, and with what should I wear them? I logged on to the International Male site, because they create clothes which would suit these shoes Their Wilshire Blvd moccasin is quite similar to your shoes. Start with the Terrace Henley How about some linen pants, preferably in a similar shade of blue,...
I'm sure there are, but you've covered most of the ones I would have mentioned. An eBay search might be the best thing, with an emphasis on those items with pics. Maybe something will pop up. What about those hats which have narrower brims, but are similar ro fedoras in general shape? Like bowler hats (the John Steed type, from the Avengers), derbies, etc? I don't know much about them at all, though.
