Here are mine...don't know why I still have them. I suppose for times just like this. Mine were also quite comfortable, the only thing they had going for them.

Pimp-tastic... I sort of like them too, but only under the right circumstances.

I'll just echo the last 10 posts in a row: I ALSO like the loafers!

Florsheim, Nunn Bush, and Johnston and Murphy shoes. Weird polyester blend Riley collar shirts that I used to think were cool, including one that was lime green.

Corrected grain shoes before I knew what that meant. "Why won't these scuffs buff out?"

There are no right circumstances for such things....

When I was in Grad school I needed a new suit so I did what I had did for years.... went to Value City (Shitty) and bought a polyester suit with a fake sounding Italian name. Three button, and, of course, black, complete with pleated trousers. I still have it, and tried it on and realized just how terrible it fits. I have lots of Old Navy crap, in fact I'm wearing a pair of ancient Old Navy Khakis right now and I have to admit, these things are better quality then the newer ones. As for shirts, most of stuff was bought on sale in sizes that were too big, lots of it from Target and Kohls. Thank gods, that's changed now, but still. I got my Tux for my wedding from Men's Warehouse and I honestly think I got a really good deal. Everything was well-maintained and was pretty well made. Every time I wear a Tux I compare it to the Men's Warehouse and nothing comes close for a hire tux.
