My question is what are alternatives for belt loops. I know tabs, but that wasn't the name. Anyone else know any other kinds? It's really bugging me and my tailor isn't open until Tuesday.

Thanks!

Side tabs? Braces buttons? Back tab belt?

Really? I actually like it, but some her at SF said it would look too formal. I would consider buying some longwings or wingtips in suede, but I don't want to look like a douchebag.

Just go out of your way to not act like a douchebag, and you ought to be alright.

Are there actually any other options than longwings or wingtips?

If someone at school is going to call you a douchebag, it'll be because you're trying to dress better than the norm. It won't matter what kind of shoes you're wearing; once you're past the $150 sneaker style, plenty of your peers will be out for blood (which isn't a bad thing, IMO).

 

With that being said, anything suede would look great. I'm about to start my second year of college, and I'm looking to get a pair of single monks in brown suede, as I've seen them look great with jeans and khakis. See:

If you don't like the idea of wearing monks to school, I think wingtips are still a great option. I'm not a huge fan of longwings, but that's totally personal preference.

Yes, but you might want to stick to bluchers and loafers if the rest of your clothes are more casual. Figure out how formally or informally you want to dress, and then pick out shoes that are consistent with that.

No, that isn't the name. But thanks. I swear it was like tri-something. but tri-tab doesn't bring up any results in a search... I may just have to wait until Tuesday to call.

I'm a second year law student.  I'm having lunch tomorrow at a reasonably nice hotel with a partner at big firm.  She is the aunt of one of my close friends and is going to help me find a job.  It certainly isn't an interview in the formal sense, but it's important that I make a good impression.   I'm considering wearing a suit, but I'm a little concerned it's overdoing it.  I don't have a blazer or a sportcoat that is appropriate for summer (a blazer is going to be one of my next purchases, but I don't the money right now).  I appreciate any advice.  Thanks.

Do you have any decent v-neck sweaters? Nice shoes, trousers, button-up (or maybe even an OCBD), maybe a tie (depending on shirt choice), and a cotton sweater looks "nice" without being formal.

 

I'd much rather wear something like that than a full suit; like you said, that's overdoing it a bit.

What are the guidelines (if any) for wearing leather with leather? I have some leather boots that I'd like to wear with navy chinos this Autumn, but I don't know what to wear for a jacket. I have one in leather, but don't know if it can be worn with the boots:

I might pick up a khaki field jacket, which I think would look great with the boots and navy chinos, but I'm just wondering if I'll need it.

Thanks for the reply.  I have all of the above, and I was considering something along those lines.  

 

But I'm actually starting to reconsider the suit.  Whats the worst that could happen if I overdo it?  She tells me that I didn't have to wear it and thats that.  

 

Can anyone think of a reason why overdoing it could be a bad thing?

Is the fabric on this tuxedo a deal breaker? Would fit well and it's a peak/1 button model, which are surprisingly hard to find

Jacket is not that loose around the waist, but i think maybe the jacket material/color makes it look "big". The sleeves are too long and I'm not sure if it'd be worth the money to have a tailor shorten these. There are 4 buttons and you can see the stitching for the button holes, but it's more for the look as the 2 components are just sewn together. Not a true button hole. Pics for reference
FYI - the pics of me in the jacket, the sleeves are rolled up



Anybody have suggestions?
