After this has been established, we need a poll with these two choices.
I always wear black shoes with charcoal and navy suits, but burgundy shoes go great with both too. Brown with charcoal and navy I was never a big fan. But brown shoes go with everything else.
I like ecru shirts (the term usually used for shirts in this colour). Though a pale yellow/cream might be a little better. Now as for the tie, it needs to contrast with the shirt.
If I did then I'd have shoe covers, not make people take off their shoes. You don't care about how much bacteria is on your foot. There's quite a lot inside your shoe. Most people have smelly feet, and that comes from bacteria. That's why I prefer people to keep their shoes on.
I keep my shoes on when I get home.I'm careful not to spill food when cooking, though I'm typically not wearing good shoes when cooking. But I always wear shoes when cooking. If something hot did spill, I wouldn't want to be without shoes. And the floor gets dirty in the kitchen, so I'd rather the bottoms of my shoes get dirty than my socks.When I go to bed, I put my shoes on the floor next to my bed with trees in. The go in the closet the next morning when I take out my...
Go back to the 60s in America: flat front and cuffs. And what about in London? Pleats and no cuffs.
I never wrote that. At one time, double vents on a single-breasted jacket weren't as acceptable, but no vent is fine on either. The single vent is there for riding horseback. Double-breasted jackets aren't very practical on horseback since there is no cutaway front, so a single vent has no place on a double-breasted jacket. There's no logical reasoning as to why pleats and cuffs have to go together. It's all personal preference.
A lot of people think cuffs/pleats and flat front/plain hem is a rule. A lot of websites say it's a rule too. I'm not sure if this is just an internet thing or if it was around before the internet. Bowtielad might genuinely believe this. I think Brooks Brothers promotes this "rule," even though in their golden years they were known for the trad flat front/cuffs look.
I'm for cuffs. Light-weight trousers benefit from the extra weight of cuffs.
I keep my shoes on in my own home. I have a rough welcome mat that is very good at cleaning shoes. And I have good carpets, which means they can take a beating and withstand shoes just fine. But my dog is much harder on carpets than any shoes could be. There are a few people who always take off their shoes when they come into my home, and some of them have feet that smell so bad I'd rather they didn't. One friend of mine has me take off shoes in his house, but he's the...
