Check out thrift stores if you're on a budget,

this is WIWT, thrifted shoes/good deals. The WHOLE outfit comes to $169

Looks good, and for that price can't beat it.  I have been going to thrift stores lately, it's just a matter of time before I find something good.  I wish I lived somewhere like NYC so I could find better stores, but I'll just keep looking.  I welcome the feedback, even if it is very harsh and negative right now, I hope to improve my look, and I'll be taking the time to browse around here for ideas as well.

Nobody should prefer the Windsor knot.

Learn to love the BD. And those are not "horrible waves," they are beautiful OCBD collar roll.

I do live in the U.S. and I do have a couple of BD shirts but I would NEVER wear them with a suit. All of my button-down shirts are made from soft cotton and I love to wear them casual style. I just think that a regular, hard collar shirt looks very sharp with a suit but that's just my opinion (actually not just mine, here's another example:

Skip to the collar shape part.)

Oh, my bad. I think I would still skip the tie though imo.

Why not?  I think it looks better with a wider collar.

If I can do it in central Texas, you can do it wherever you are :P

I personally will do half windsor if I'm wearing a spread collar shirt, but I'm not sure what the 'rules' are on that,..

I would like to hear the answer myself. I always thought that four in hand or windsor look best with a wide spread collar.

I'm sure I can, just a matter of time, finding the right stores and making sure to keep checking back regularly.

 

I don't know of any 'rules' on tie knot style, I imagine the ideal knot can vary based on tie materials, whether or not it is a slimmer tie, stuff like that.  I've heard that the windsor tends to project confidence at times such as a job interview as it is a slightly more complex/more difficult knot, but I don't know how much truth there is to that.

Jeff, this is the answer on your question from my point of view as well.

I believe that you might be able to get nice pair of non expensive but nice shoes like Sebago, Florsheim etc.

Since you're member of SF I suppose you're trying to learn something here. If people give you critique and advices it does not mean they don't wanna see you here.
Stay and learn if you want. But If you are completely satisfied with your style and clothes which you're wearing why are you here? smile.gif

Yes, I am looking for opinions for improvement, so I will be sticking around to learn from you guys.  I do appreciate the feedback, what caught me off guard were the very straightforward responses that could be taken as rude.  I am completely over that now though, always happy to hear opinions and new ideas!

You're just wrong here and the effortlessgent is also wrong.

LOL

Would you care to elaborate a little bit?

The BD is a perfectly acceptable option in american business dress. Yes it is a more casual, dare I say country, collar, but perfectly acceptable in that context.

I tend to wear them only with sportcoat fits, but if I felt like it, then yes, I would wear them with a suit.

Thank you. I'm glad to see that you are agreeing that it is on the casual side. That's all I was really trying to say in my previous posts.

Couching that comment is "why the hell are you wearing that" terms wasn't exactly the way to do that. Post some fit pics and put your money where your mouth is.

Anyway. Today, picture is dark as hell, spoiler has a little better shot, but the colors are washed out. I want this shirt to work with this fit, but I think it's visually clashing with the SC pattern.

Also, I want my hair to be PB awesome, but it's not.
