This is may be discussed already .. but if not .. I would find fun topic to discuss.. I personally wear Slim Fit Hugo Boss cotton shirt with Armani flat front pants. But I really wish to wear suit when I go out, but I have not found gutts to do so. (when all of my buddies wear jeans and shirt.)
My favorite "dressy casual" outfit consists of a spread collar shirt (plain white, plain blue or simple stripe/check on white background), a pair of well-tailored navy wool trousers, black/brown leather belt and captoe shoes, with a beige walking coat. For something more casual, I like a blue shirt with dark blue jeans, with brown belt, brown leather shoes and a dark brown suede jacket which hits the hips. Grooming: extremely clean cut, no facial hair, conservative hair style, well-cared-for nails. Depending on occasion, a bit of Dunhill Red eau de toilette. My philosophy: Wear understated, quality, classic, well-fitting clothes without looking like a grandfather and without accumulating debt. Which means I have to limit myself to shirts coming from Jantzen, eBay and Brooks Brothers. For wool trousers, I get them made-to-measure in Asia, for about $60 per pair. I need to find nice shoes, though. My captoe shoes were from Payless. I'm looking at these ones, and hoping to go for them during their 25% sales.
Brooks Brothers Peal & Co. Square-Cap Blucher Shoe. Rich, hand-sewn Italian calfskin leather uppers. Hand-stitched leather lining and sole. Made in England. $358.00 Â
Brooks Brothers Boat Shoe. The perennially popular preppy style to wear both on- and off-deck. Leather uppers. Imported. Dark brown with white rubber sole or light tan with two-tone rubber sole. $128.00 BTW, how necessary are shoetrees? In short, I want to be, talk like and dress like Oliver (Igby's evil older brother) in Igby Goes Down
