When L2BRF gets done, boy do I have a project for you all.
Wedding date is set.
Will have to travel to Seoul end of March.
Will take one suit, shirt, tie, shoes.
Will need something for when I give her the ring.
Must visit fiance's relatives, the important ones.
Will be very formal meetings. Doctors, judges, businessmen, scientists.
I would like to look as young as possible but very professional and crisp.
I don't want to look 8 years older than my fiance but maybe 4 years older without making her look older LOL.
Sounds fun? Anybody up for this?
I'm sure this is not the end of it.
My tuppys: You'll need at least 2 suits, navy and grey (charcoal), black oxford caps and dark brown oxfords. One reason, you don't want to look the same in every pic. Secondly, your suits, shoes need a rest. Wearing any of them for days in a row isn't a good idea, also impression-wise.
Little anekdote reg age: Friends of the family had (still have, but past tense for dramatical purposes) ... had a daughter. She looked like Heidi Klum only much better, objectively. She was 16, I was 15, I had some crush on her. She married (@16) someone age 34. As far as I know, no one below age ~25 was invited...
Morale: It sucked to be too young to kop the girl.
Not a problem any more (divorced). But now it's probably the other way round. ;D
Found this thread while browsing CM for the first time in a while, had a question regarding standard dress shoes / formality
Currently I have:
G&G Oxford Black
EG Epsom Black / Slate / Grey Suede
Alden Plaza plain shell boot (trying to sell but at current offers probably just going to keep them)
Meermin Museum Calf Brown Captoe Phillip 2 copy
Other than the Epsom I haven't worn any of these as I don't really need to dress up anymore. However I'm probably going to start interviewing soon for a few more conservative jobs (PE / VC, Management Consulting etc.) and was wondering if the Epsom would be fine for interviews / actual work? Navy / Charcoal suits only, white shirt. Main concern would be that eyelets plus grey suede visible when sitting would make shoe too casual. Budget wise not an issue but I feel it's a waste keeping all these dressier shoes that I never wear. Shouldn't have bought G&Gs but Spoo sale too good to pass up.
Thoughts? Also any reason to keep any of the brown shoes at all?
34 and 16???
I don't think I want to check out high school girls.
I wonder if I should just stick with modern looking suits. It's hard nowadays to find traditional suits. Everything is becoming...feminine IMO.
The problem is that modern looking suits look dated very quickly. More classic looks age much more slowly.
If you weren't spending $$$ for quality construction and durability, it wouldn't be a big deal as the suits probably wouldn't last long enough to become dated. But if you're buying something built to last, considering how it'll age as a look is worthwhile.
It's kind of hard nowadays with everyone selling suits with narrower lapels and waist. Then the rest are just boxy. I will be in Korea in April for the wedding. Let's see if we can catch up for shots...errr....just a beer.
Well, it depends. If he sees a lot of Field's work and likes what he sees, I don't think there is any problem with Rudals going up and just saying "I want a gray suit in this fabric and you do whatever you think is best."
