Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 383post #5731 of 373945/16/14 at 7:15ampost #5732 of 373945/16/14 at 7:44amQuote:Originally Posted by Claghorn
I know shantung is a summer fabric, but I don't think you should necessary restrict yourself from wearing it in Spring and Fall, particularly if it's an earthy color.
This CW would go well with that jacket.
and I think this could be worn well into the fall (shibumi)
Thanks, Claghorn. I just ordered the Shibumi. Although I didn't mention it, I've also decided I need a few more brown ties, too, so it's perfect in that respect as well. It'll work with a number of my jackets, so it kills a number of birds with one stone.

The best kind of buy is the deadly buy. Especially if it involves dead birds. Generally this is my philosophy...I buy to fill as many roles as possible. As long as I don't keep refilling the same roles, it works well. Though I do end up with a lot of shades of blue in terms of jackets.
Got the fabric at a hefty discount from them as it was the last they had in stock and they were trying to move itpost #5734 of 373945/16/14 at 8:12ampost #5735 of 373945/16/14 at 8:15amQuote:

I wonder if the first one is CBD. It looks somewhat casually to be wearing with suit. Tell me if I am wrong.post #5741 of 373945/16/14 at 8:56amThread Starterpost #5742 of 373945/16/14 at 8:59ampost #5743 of 373945/16/14 at 9:00am
Black belts with navy blue suits are fine but I wonder if brown will "pretty up" the CBD look.
I already have a black Hallam and I am happy with it. Maybe I'll get the brown one now and get the brown Westbourne.
I think going with Westbourne will diversify my shoe collection more just because it 'looks' different.post #5744 of 373945/16/14 at 9:01amQuote:
regular brown will be bad? Clag says it will be too brown. I am fine with that.
Shoes and belt colours should match, right?
price is not an issue.
If wife wants to shell out $5k on her master bedroom furniture with flowers on everything then I can do whatever with 'our' money.post #5745 of 373945/16/14 at 9:15am
