Wow, I've been working hard on my wardrobe, but I didn't consider myself "advanced" just yet! Not bad for an 29-yr-old on an entry-level budget (if I do say so myself :).
-a blue odd jacket. If you live in a two-season climate, then two, one for warmth and one for the cold - Three. One sack cut BB, One super 150s Hart Shaf Marx, One linen lighter blue.
-mid gray flannel pants - I have four different pairs of wool trousers in different shades, but none flannel, although I've been looking.
-decent, non-chino khakis - I have khaki dress trousers and Orvis donegal wool trousers w/ leather pockets. Not sure which counts.
-at least one funky (but tasteful!) non-blue tweed jacket - Yes! I have three.
-a mid to dark gray worsted single-breasted suit - Dark grey with a faint pinstripe.
-a navy worsted single breasted suit - Yes, but hoping to replace it with a better quality one.
-a white FC shirt - I have two, one spread, one point collar. Also four white BC shirts.
-several blue BC shirts, at least one BD - One classic blue OCBD, one fine dress BD, one point collar BC.
-black stitch caps. - Check, (Bostonian) but hoping to replace within a couple years.
-some tasteful brown oxfords (exact configuration up to you) A beautiful pair of Magnanni cap-toe like these.
-loafers in medium brown calf, suede or shell or else burg shell. Not shell, but nice penny and tassel loafers (JM and AE)
-a solid black tie, knit or grenadine - missing this piece. I don't wear my black suit often, so why would I need a solid black tie?
-a solid navy tie, knit or grenadine - solid navy, but neither grenadine nor knit. I have a solid brown knit and a solid dark green knit, though.
-a plain white linen hanky - Check.
For the "more advanced" players:
-at least one DB suit, navy worsted or medium gray flannel (the best dressers will have both). See below.
-at least one linen suit - Only a jacket (which was half a suit that I swapped the buttons on, see under "blue odd jacket").
-at least one pair of brown suede shoes - Yes!
-at least one formal tie, e.g., a B&W shepherd's check - I have a formal B&W "wedding tie".
-at least one wool or cashmere tie - several
-at least one linen or linen blend tie - two
-A complete, well-fitting, correct black tie rig, including shoes - no need yet.
-An overcoat in navy, charcoal or camel - no
- topcoat in tweed - got a nice grey herringbone.
- raincoat - SB or trench - no
- one chalkstripe suit - navy or gray; bonus points for DB - Yes! DB navy chalk-strip flannel.
How did I score?post #633 of 64111/8/13 at 11:47amWow, I'm well dressed in accordance with Michael's list, with most of the advanced column checked off and also the optionals.
My personal well dressed list includes formal slippers, formal wear and good lounge wear for around the house. Nothing more disappointing that a well dressed person who rents a tux or wears old sweats and fuzzy socks around the house.post #634 of 64111/8/13 at 1:21pmQuote:Originally Posted by SkinnyGoomba

I am as well, although if I could figure out something that was comfortable enough but still looked fabulous if someone dropped by, I would adopt it.
Currently it's cords, a t-shirt with a sweater or fleece and slippers.post #639 of 64111/11/13 at 10:43ampost #640 of 64111/11/13 at 10:46ampost #641 of 64111/15/13 at 12:30pm
