Ok... Shoes - I would not wear either of them. The brown ones look like an attempt of a lower caliber brand to make a legit balmoral wingtip. Admirable, but it falls short in my opinion. The black ones...your intuition is correct. Return them. My suggestion depends on whether or not you intend shoes for the bars or dressier parties. I'll assume both. For the bars or other venues where people will spill alcohol and step on your feet. I would suggest a smart brown...
Any specific place I could order it from?
Dress Pants: You are probably good with your 3 for the moment. Dress shirts: I also favorite white and light blue for true dress shirts (i.e. to be worn with a tie). Semi-Dress shirts: I'll classify these are casual button-downs (or OCBD). This is the area I stock up the most as I do not wear ties very often. I tend to favor oxford, pinpoint, and flannel fabrics for these. If you wish to add here, I would suggest Luxire or proper cloth for shirts. They are roughly...
You misunderstand, I am referring to MTM. Following the measuring guide for shoulders on their website. Normally you'll decide (for example) that your shoulders are around 19.5-20". Use the 20" (or larger estimate). I think pretty much everyone has had good success with this approach. If you are muscular, go for a larger arm opening. TOJ sleeves typically run a bit slim in my opinion.
For a PhD program, anything that covers your feet will do.
Measure your shoulders. Use this number. If you are between two measurements, go for the larger one.
I have been trying to find this fabric this by going to my local tailor and looking around online, but I can't find it. J. Crew and Todd Snyder apparently have access to it or had it made for them. Does anyone know where I could find an oxford fabric like this?
I have actually had two brown lambskin jackets (sold one, kept one), so clearly I do not think it is a bad leather, but yes, the black and navy lamb are "nicer" in my personal opinion. By nicer, I do mean more supple and very soft to the touch. The black and navy are much easier to stretch and fold/wrinkle more naturally in my experience. The brown lamb is a bit more rigid, if I put on my jackets and hold my arm straight down, the brown lamb will make a straight line...
Does anyone know a fabric manufacturer that has oxford cloth like this? https://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shirts/oxfordshirts/PRDOVR~03183/03183.jsp I have been unable to discern the fabric source after asking J Crew. Based on the price, I figure it cannot be Thomas Mason or Thom Browne.
Does anyone know where J. Crew sources their fabrics? Specifically their oxford shirts? All I can gather is that it is somewhere in Mauritius.
