I doubt you want to go custom made. A standard point collar works well with a pin. See if www.tiebar.com has any. If the spread on the collar is too wide, it will not hold together. Also, I question the use of this accessory--something of an affectation, IMO, especially without a dressy suit. But since most doctors dress like shit, with hideous ties and "comfortable shoes" (plus chinos), you'll stand out for sure! Good luck with it.
Price is decent, but watch the sizing. All of their stuff is cut small, which is typical of English outerwear. I had to upsize on two of their pieces. Check that out carefully, I would suggest.
Another vote for brown and against box toe and for wearing low cut rubbers.
Ugly and junky, and if I know GILT (and I do), probably overpriced vis-a-vis real MSRP anyway.
No sweater, and do you have anything other than brown? Brown is not a first choice for a job interview. You should have a solid stable of blue, gray and pinstripes before getting a brown suit. And please don't buy a green one.
Button down is less dressy. Like many of the posters, I prefer spread with some substance or cutaway. You didn't mention whether you were wearing a jacket. If it is a blazer, button down is okay, but not for a suit. If a dressier sport coat, I generally avoid a BD there as well.
Sorels or Kamiks are the way to go. Key is a thickly-treaded rubber bottom with a felt insulated liner. I believe the rubber boats that posted were Le Chameau wellies, which, being leather lined, are fine for cold rain or minor slush (and also enable you to tuck in your pants. I do wear mine with a tweed overcoat on such days, as they look better than then Sorels or Kamiks I have recommended. But if you are looking at serious snow boots to wear with a down coat or...
Welcome to the club of those who ask perfectly decent questions just to get their balls busted by some of the freaks who inhabit this site and for whom clothes are like crack. Now you know that asking a question about a suit that cost less than $1,000 is asking for trouble. And NEVER ask about shoes unless they are also in the $1,000 price range and you are prepared to discuss the virtues of various "lasts." To answer your question, I bought a few of the regular...
I have read the other suggestions and the only ones I agree with are a cream turtleneck and a bight pocket square. The other color suggestions call to mind a guy in a navy blazer with pleated chinos and tasse/kiltie loafers a la LL Bean. And that is the look you are trying to avoid.
Great idea from a major player here. Does this photo of me in sitting in a red Hummer count? Thanks for being so thoughtful and Happy Holidays to All.
