I'd like to find a local store to go and have them measure my proportions, but the only store I can find in the Denver, CO area is:

http://www.tedsclothiers.com/about.cfm

http://www.theregimentshops.com/

I know nothing about suit brands, and specifically the one's mentioned on that site, but can anyone make any suggestions?

Would it be better just to go to a Brooks Brother?

Help!

Lawrence Covell is good but I would recommend Andriesen Morton. They are having a Samuelsohn trunk show next weekend and you will get $250 off a MTM suit. Ask for John, he's a great guy. You will probably still be just north of $800 though. But you will get a fully canvassed suit that fits great and will last a long time. Get a solid navy or solid charcoal 2 Button.

I need a pair of dress shoes to wear for job interviews and professional work. Any suggestions? I am quite selective on what I want to buy. I want one with top quality,  looks nice and durable.

Budget?

Don't really have a budget in mind, say around $200?

You're not going to have a big selection of uncorrected calf shoes for $200. You can try looking around Herring shoes and Pediwear.com.

You could also look at Allen Edmonds seconds, or even buy lightly preowned AE's on eBay or the B&S. Just know your size and width.

I can go as far as 300-400 if you had a pair in mind you wanted me to look into.

AE Park Avenue is the most recommended "entry level" interview shoe here. Black or dark brown.

Thanks mate, will look into them.

post #13285 of 33197
I actually don't like the park avenue. It's a nice shoe for what it is, but I simply cannot bring myself to ever care about a plain captoe. I typically recommend something like the 5th avenue- conservative enough for anything short of black tie, but there's a little more visual interest there.

My conservative black shoes are a pair of AE polos in all black. Saddle with brouging, but the black and closed lacing keeps more than formal enough for any situation I'll find myself in.

Hi,

I am looking for a pair of shoes to wear casually with camel, blue and grey pants, in light brown/tan color, I found this model from Grenson :

http://www.grenson.co.uk/en_gb/shop/tom-1280

I like the shape, I was wondering if the color of the shoe will match the colors of pants I'm planning to wear them with?

Thank you.

Hi everyone, I'm planing on attending an evening wedding. I was thinking of a navy suit with a purple royal oxford shirt. What tie, pocket square, and color belt/shoes do you guys recommend? 

 

Thanks!

I saw a few Brooks Bros. shirts in a TJ Maxx the other day which had a size tag stitched into the collar and the other tag just had the pig logo and made in the usa. The sleeves were all to short for me. Oxford cloth with no pocket. Any idea want this could have been? I can not find them on their website.

Hey I was hoping I could get some shirt, tie, pocket square combination help for a relative's wedding I have to attend. It is a two day event with the more formal event on day 2. Here is what I'm thinking. Please give feedback and criticism. If something doesnt work/isnt that good then let me know.

Day 1:

- Navy Suit
- Brooks Brothers Blue Shirt
- Burgundy Grenadine Kent Wang Tie
- Mustard Silk Pocket Square with Red and Blue design

I think the gold pocket square is a good combination with the blue shirt. Meanwhile, the burgundy tie works with the blue shirt.

Day 2:

- Navy Suit
- Brooks Brothers White French Cuff Shirt
- Dark Green Grenadine Tie
- Kent Wang White Linen Pocket Square with Red Edge

I'm thinking the dark green tie goes well with the white shirt. As for the pocket square, is there a better option than white ps on white shirt? I think the red edge is a good contrast though (?) with the dark green tie?
