@New Shoes1, it's investment banking and everyone I met at the interviews wore black shoes. But you might be right. I have a dark brown captoe though. Just don't want to stand out as an analyst.

I now see you are in Denmark and not the U.S., so perhaps you are right.  I will say, though, that it's worth not buying too much in the way of shoes and work clothes until you start work and see how others dress on a regular basis.

Better get yourself some black captoes if you're starting in London or will visit the London office regularly.

Regarding the blue Donegal question:  Howard Yount blue Donegal tweed trousers with a brown/olive tweed jacket, sweater, boots, and suede gloves.  Jacket color is most accurate in the second photo; sweater isn't as blue in real life, more gray.

 

Cheers,

Thanks guys. I'll hold until I see what others wear. 

 

Edit: One of the guys I met during the first interview wore these Ecco loafers (Ecco is big in Denmark, especially among the older generation where many believe it's top notch):

Although being new to Styleforum, I'm pretty sure they're not SF approved.

Damn right, he was. Associate in M&A. I had a hard time focussing on anything else than those bad boys the first couple of mins.

Looks like you're about to commit a rather tasteful murder (something about the stance combined with wearing gloves indoors; a bit menacing dare I say).

Dislike this fit.

Olive SC and blue pants are definitely not a good combo, IMO

How are we even having a conversation about whether black cap toes are necessary in the Classic Menswear forum? If you ever have occasion to wear a suit, you should own a pair. If you never intend to wear a suit in your life, skip them. Done.

I have a pair. I don't like them. I would wear a pair in Carmina's Rain last. To an evening event. Otherwise, I prefer shades of brown with all my suits and trousers.

I wear mine maybe 8 times a year. When they are ready to be replaced (which won't be for a long time, I suspect), I may just get navy instead.

I wear mine only for funerals. Fortunately that's a lot less than 8 times a year.
