Yeah, in NYC, that's perfectly fine. The key is developing a consistent aesthetic though. Obviously, if you're normally wearing t-shirts and shorts, you'll look like you're going "formal" with the blazer. If you're consistently button-down oxford with blazer or odd jacket, then that'll play just fine too, and soon people will realize that's your standard look.

I've done a lot of wardrobe renovation over the last few months after reading more SF and learning a bit. Now in retrospect I'm kicking myself for purchasing a Hugo Red suit during a very small sale in December for like $700+. It's a perfectly good-fitting suit, but the price + the fact that it's fused make me less than thrilled about the buy (I needed it for interviews, having just started law school this year). What would you guys say was your all-time worst buy?

Tie bars -- wear them horizontal or at a diagonal angle? According to Flusser, tie bars go diagonally based on the rule that "nothing out to cross the body in a horizontal line" or something like that, but where the hell does he get that from? The vast majority of tie-bar photos I've seen just go straight horizontal.
Yeah it may just be better to get slim fitting shirts. Maybe pick out your favorites and/or the shirts w/ the least wear and keep those? It's probably not worth keeping white dress shirts, for instance, if you've already used them quite a bit and they're showing wear.
I'm definitely interested in the overcoat, can we see pictures/measurements?
Just so you know, the Florsheim Lexington is often on eBay for prices ranging from $65-75, so you can probably get a better deal there.
For future reference, the code for the last few years has been PSMay[year]. At least, that's what it was in 08 as well.
