Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)? - Page 2218

Pretty sure what type of shoes you can get away with wearing with a suit depends on the person. For example, I can imagine Snow wearing a non-conservative suit with some chunky shoes even in a formal context. Formality doesn't necessarily require the suppression of personality.

As discussed last time around, in many of these situations, you are not dressing for yourself, but rather for the situation/host.

Lol, on that note I'm trying to picture you wearing Allen Edmonds...

We know how big of a personality you have, Brad. In this case, you are unique and your opinion or philosophy is not applicable wholly.

And no one is talking about suppressing your inner diva. A plain, well fitted suit can show a lot of personality by pairing it with f tie, PS, and shoe choice, no matter how subtle or loud the print, texture, hand, or design is.

But this is a stupid topic because we know how much personality the group of SF members have compared to the co-worker in the next cubicle. This topic is more about what I should buy within the SF context that is internet approved rather than how can I fit into my workplace. The last thing we want is to fit in.

Who gives a shit. Buy a Uniqlo suit and some WHATEVER shoes for WHATEVER it is that requires it and save the rest for an undercover ethnic knit sleeve rider + some itunes giftcards to buy Rihanna jamz

And KJ I think you may only be able to get away with SW&D footwear with a casual linen or cotton suit at a very casual event. It won't work with a wool suit.

Not sure about AE as I haven't had a pair in a while but the two you mention are fine just search M/C. At the 200 range you have Meermin or Loake or http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-list.php?brandid=6 but sizing is an issue. AE is easiest to size and as cyc said better to try on first. I would go with dark brown as that is more wearable in standard dressy situations outside. I haven't worn my one pair of black wholecuts in at least a year. Black might work better for your wardrobe though

Predistressed I know, but I think raw denim is just not for me. I've tried APC, Naked & Famous and 3Sixteen I find I them to be a bit too stiff and I can never get good fades...

What do you guys think of these?

Hi Guys I really like this Elder Statesman piece, but it is both sold out and too much money (3250$US).

Does anyone know of something similar in style to this? I like the "Coat of Many Colors" look.
