So ocbd is "Oxford collar button down?"
Those two shirts are nice, and the price is right.
I've looked at suede shoes, do you have any suggestions to point me on the right path?
People seem to mean lots of things when they say Khakis - can you be more specific? I DO have 2 pairs of chinos I left off the list. Blue and brown. I need to have them hemmed. Do you mean Khaki color?
I forgot to mention I have a black v-neck sweater, I also have a dark green one. Both merino wool.
If you were to add one or two items more, what would you add?
Really appreciating the help.
I DO need a suit. I just donated the only suit I owned (a brown one) because it was way too big on me now. So that is definitely on my list. While I do not need one (ever) for work, I did recently attend a wedding and a funeral. Both times I had to wear sport coats and trousers (that at the time, didn't quite fit right.) So yes, on my list.
I was able to get a pair of Gap Khakis, so checking that off. I also picked up another white shirt from MW. Also, my check shirt came in from J. Hilburn (made to measure) and it looked and fits fantastically. No luck on the suede oxfords, the Stacy Adams shoe was not available in my size. I have had little luck finding anything. After searching around, here's what my alternatives seem to be:
These Ted Bakers for $109.
These Ralph Laurens for $150
on eBay, this Neumok
I worry about the used shoe, I have never tried on AE and have no idea how they fit. It looks a bit worn on the toe.
Next - I have the opportunity to get a pair of trousers from J. Hilburn. I think I have it narrowed down to 2.
The light grey revenge
The charcoal herringbone
I don't have any black shoes or belt, so not sure the charcoal would make sense. I really dig the grey revenge though.
