Getting a new wardrobe. Will need a little bit of help from you fine gentleman!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

 

Below is what I plan to buy:

 

Pants:

Brooks Brothers Advantage Chinos (Milano) fit. Navy Blue + British Tan

 

Shoes:

Alden Chukka Boots (Snuff Suede) color

 

 

 

Are my choices good or what can be changed?  Also I am looking for pointers on what style of shirt and belt I should buy?

 

Thank you and I would really appreciate any feedback. smile.gif

More info please, what area do you live in? Do you live in a city or suburb? What field of work are you in? Describe your appearance ( or even better a photo ). What occasions are you planning to dress for? This will speed things along...

I just moved to Dubai. I am a Nurse Practitioner. I am 5 ' 6 medium built.  I plan to dress nice for all occasions.  Right now I am working on a new casual outfit and wardrobe.

In this thread I am looking for an outfit.  If I feel the style suits me well I plan to buy an entire casual wardrobe.

 

After my casual wardrobe is ready I plan to start buying my suits (which will be very complicated for me)

I hope something aside from Brooks Brothers pants and a pair of Aldens will be involved in this outfit.... Perhaps a shirt?

Haven't you seen Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol?

Its hard to find a good place to purchase good bespoke or made to measure suits under $700. I hear mixed reviews about indochino which was my first choice.

Im looking for tips as to what shirts I should buy.  Looking for long sleeve sport shirts.  Not sure if thats what they are called.  Some shirts that are good for hot sunny days.  Any great quality recommendations would be highly appreciated.

You will look like a catalog if you match bb chinos with a bb button down. also, no logos on shirts.

I'd suggest going MTM at modern tailor for the shirts and take all the money you save there, put it towards your suit.

Shirts: for casual, you can't go wrong with OCBDs (Oxford Cloth Button Downs). One in white, several in blue, pink, stripes. Something like this: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=714&Product_Id=1557408&Parent_Id=711&default_color=BLUE&sort_by=newArrivals&sectioncolor=Blue&sectionsize=# (or a cheaper alternative).
