A dark blue jean has SIGNIFICANTLY more wearability. Brown, black, patterns, solids.... it's a go-to cure all look great. Get some naked & famous perhaps.

I wear mine with gray, greens, purple, and burgundy too, but I would agree that blue jeans are much more versatile. I still enjoy black jeans on their own terms though, I find outfits that are simply textured shades of gray and black fun once in a while. Faded black jeans, black shoes, gray v neck sweater with the shirt collar being the only pop of color, or even just plain white.

Hey MCers, this is probably a pretty common question, but I couldn't find anything by searching so I'm just gonna drop it here.

 

What's a good brand for cheaper dress shoes? I know that AE seconds or AE on sale is a pretty general recommendation around here, but I'm looking for a little cheaper than that. I'm your typical broke college student that will hopefully be going to SV post-graduation, so I don't expect to need really nice, last-forever dress shoes. I basically only really need them for job interviews/fairs, fraternity/sorority formals, and basic situations like that, so I'm looking for black caps or plain toed lace-ups that look good enough and stay within reasonable prices (<~130?). Thanks everyone!

Quick question:

 

Do you guys think MTM suit is worthy?

 

i enjoy wearing tailored garments, they fit!

 

except the two of my favorites: A Timeless & L.H.S., any recommendations?

Took a shot as a separate thread, but no replies.

His office used to be suit-n-tie every day but no more, so doesn't need quite the same size closet he had. I like the mix of physical pattern in the design of these two, but the colors are complex enough I'd love to know what shirts you think these would go with.

In case the colors are too washed out to see.. Both have alternating fabric patterns (flat and houndstooth, almost)

 

The left one has broad grey/silver and yellow stripes along with thinner orange pinstripes.Yellow and grey is more straight forward than the other tie (which is really bugging me) but I've never really worn orange of any kind so just wondering.

The right one is white along with stripes of pink, white, and dark dark maroon/red stripes. This one really throws me because white is one color (for ties) I'm not familiar with. It'd be too washed out by a white shirt, right? Light blue (since it goes with each color individually)?

 

Thanks in advance for the advice!

Any suggestions for good shoes to wear out during the fall-- during the daytime and at bars?  I was looking into a new pair of loafers but worried those would be better as a spring/summer shoes.

 

Thanks!

Suede shoes are great for fall. Wingtip boots, or wingtips come to mind for the fall.

Any ideas on some good slacks/dress pants for work in the $80 price range? Would love something with a nice slim cut. I really like this fit, but I can't swallow a $175 price tag at this point. http://www.bonobos.com/po-8837-feb-fashion-wool-pants-brown-houndstooth

Does anyone know how high the rise (or measurement) is on Charles Tyrwhitt moleskin trousers? I have contacted them twice but have had no concrete answer yet.

Would an OCBD with contrasting cuff lining (i.e., only shows when sleeves are rolled) be stupid?  Thinking blue OCBD with blue gingham.  I'm having trouble finding photos of something like this, which might been it's a bad idea.

Don't do it.

does anyone know where to find slim fit v-neck sweaters with saddle shoudlers?

Is suede/nubuck really fit for winter use? I've always heard that they can't take water and moisture, but I see all these people ordering RM Williams boots and alikes in suede - beacuse of the approaching winter. Do these people all live in a dry but rather cold climate, or have I gotten it all wrong?

Oxxford Gibbons. Is this considered a full or slim cut?

I mean I wouldn't slosh around in the snow with it, but it is a cozy material for fall.winter for sure. Especially in darker colors.
