Pictures show only jackets but I have matching pants...hence suits.

OK first impressions

How can you get by on just 10 shirts? Those are going to get worn out fairly fast. Plus, taking them to get pressed and/or laundered must be a bitch to do every week and half, no? (Even more of a bitch if launder/press them yourself)

Need more shooz, man. Same things gonna happen. They're going to wear out.

-Brown wingtip (get the Cardigan or Marlow, you won't be sorry)
-Brown oxford captoes (any of the ones you posted)

Also, why not pick up some odd jackets and slacks? You say you "only wear suits," but you might find yourself in a position some time where you want to dress down a bit. You especially need these if you want to get a wingtip like the Cardigan. (Doesn't go with suits very well, unless they're tweed or something heavy)

Here's a trick. I have 4 to 6 shirts that aren't pictured that I wear as "beaters." I also have a beater shoes. I also beater pants. That's how I protect what are in the pictures.

BUT, I know I need more suits, more shirts, more ties, and more shoes.

I've only started dressing CBD about a year ago so I don't have much.  

I steam my shirts as much as possible and avoid going to the cleaners. I wear an undershirt (Target) so there is no body odor issue. 

I probably wear those shoes once a week or once every 2 weeks.

I'm 185cm and the minimum length I would use is 31.5". 31" looks already short. 29" I guess would be pretty much at the middle of your butt. lol8[1].gif
