I may end up getting another pair from AE to fill the formal brown shoe void, but I came across these shoes from Profession Bottier and at their current price ($110 incl. shipping) appear to be a good deal for casual brown shoes? Although I don't completely believe in the "retail yoox price," a large European online shoe store (spartoo.eu) seems to corroborate their retail value. I did an internet search and the few thoughts on the internet seem 50/50 on the brand/quality (incl. a french clothing forum - thank you Google translate).

 

I know it's just a picture, but any thoughts on the brand Profession Bottier? overall quality? type of leather and construction? would you buy it?

I would appreciate thoughts and advice!

The original image can be found here and the product here.

I've never heard of Profession Bottier, so I can't comment on quality.  However, those look really dark - almost black.  A lighter shade of brown would be much more versatile.

can someone decipher the numbers for me?
so far, these alfred sargent made peal & co. shoes have been the most comfortable and best fitting dress shoes ... so i'd like to know what last it is and stick to it

My guess is that's last 87.

Here's a link to the last silhouettes

is this a good price for a pair of AE?

I'm a size 10 in most shoes, will the 10.5D run too big? I really like the color. Trying to match it with a navy suit

I am honestly curious, is there a tailor in the Bay Area that understands what is this so called "styleforum approved" dress code for MC?

I would definitely be interested in paying he or she a visit as I have a small amount of alterations to be made and would like their input.

Or are the tailors only as good as the individual who details what they specifically like the way their suit/trousers fit?

Would really like to walk up to the tailor and be like "Hey Styleforum, you know?--Yeah please give me that type of cut/tailoring job please"

Any regulars on this side of the forum could give me some suggestions to think about where to hit up next?
It sounds like I'm asking for an interview and a foot in the door to some exclusive tailor...

I've got a pair of cashmere lined leather gloves that are losing their lining. The leather is beautiful and broken in, aging well. The gloves were not particularly fancy, maybe ~$80 US. Is it possible to have them re-lined for <$40? I'd like to take care of them and keep them a few more years.

I want to get a pair of brown leather chelsea boots for a reasonable price.  I buy most of my shoes from AE (so around that price range).  Can someone recommend me a good pair?

Would it be an abomination to wear navy chinos with a brown tweed jacket and tie to a funeral? My finances are currently tight so I can't shell out for a quality suit I really want and I don't want to waste money buying a cheap suit I'll only wear once.

If that's what you've got, showing respect is far more important than any traditional dress code. I'm sure the family would just be grateful you're there. White shirt and as conservative a tie as you have, of course.

This is a great  deal. I have a soft spot for two buttoned coats/blazers since they always give an elegant outlook. Well 
This is a great deal and there is no question about going for it.

This is perfectly in good order. Just as you have mentioned there is no need to spend heavily neither would it be wise at 
all to go for a cheap suite that leaves you regreting. Your presense matters most here, and a nevy white chino is a perfect 
pick for the occassion.

I have an artistic question, and I'd love some input:

 

I have commissioned a bespoke black suit - 2 button, single-breasted, flat-front, slim but not skinny. I'm a part-time musician, and I'll use this suit for my gigs and maybe also for parties/going to the opera/etc.

 

It isn't a tuxedo, and I don't want to pretend it's a tuxedo, so I'm thinking I should inject a little flair into the suit. I've considered putting contrasting stitching on the cuff buttons, or contrasting thread underneath the double-vents. Thoughts? I don't want to be too ostentatious; I just want to add a little sprezz to maximize the bespoke benefits and to show that I'm not pretending it's a tux.

 

Any opinions/suggestions about this would be much appreciated. smile.gif
