Will do, thanks.

 

Also, happy to report that the interview went great. I cannot thank everyone who replied to my questions enough to adequately show my appreciation. I am definitely looking forward to using the forums more in the future, as it is a valuable resource and the members are a wealth of knowledge. I am well versed in researching data online and searching for information on forums. I always make sure to search for readily available information before bothering anyone with needless posts. However, when it comes to some more specific questions such as exact color and pattern  combinations it can be hard to find similar enough posts to be confidant in a decision. What is probably even more often the reason for posting questions that could possibly be found searching is the time constraint usually present. The topic of professional business attire is typically analyzed for the first time, at least in detail, by those who need to know it due to important interviews or the such. Many times these interviews can be scheduled with only a few days notice which can be problematic when an individual already works full time and must purchase a number of pieces that he/she has not previously shopped for.

 

This was my situation at least, so thanks again for putting up with the painfully ignorant questions and stomaching the endless pictures of blindingly repulsive ties!

Congrats on the interview! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Don't feel bad about asking questions, when I first joined I was looking for RL Polos with the colored pony. A lot has changed since then. cool.gif

Is it possible to dry clean shirts too often? I live in a place where dry cleaning, even good dry cleaning, is very cheap (bad will cost you around a dollar per shirt, good around $2.50). Each shirt probably gets dry cleaned twice a month, worn once or twice before getting dry cleaned. I have about 12 shirts regular rotation (most cotton, a few linen).

I'm looking for a winter shoe. Is this one wearable?

 

 

 

Normally I'd prefer brown ones, but since my favorite gloves are black I would like to match them.

My understanding is that you should get your shirts laundered, not dry cleaned. Dry cleaning will wear them out a lot faster.

I...have no idea if I am getting them dry cleaned or laundered. Probably something I should investigate, by my command of Korean does not extend to dry cleaning lingo. I'll need to figure that out. Is there a chance that they've been laundering my shirts all along (knowing better than I)?

Unless you specifically ask that they be dry cleaned, they will be laundered. Yes, laundering your shirts can increase wear, but the only alternative is CVS cloth tape. teacha.gif

Does anybody know what brand this jacket is or what type of jacket it is?

These pictures were taken in 2001 so it was probably made by a brand that was prominent during that time...

Also sorry if there is already a thread for identifying brands but I did not find one. Thank you!

Just to be clear, by "formal" do you mean, say, a tuxedo? Are are you using "formal" in its less accurate but all too commonly encountered sense of "suit and tie?"

Ok, I need some sweater recommendations. I own 3 cardigan sweaters (all Brooks Brothers) and 1 v neck sweater (JCrew)*. Living in Denver and with fall/winter coming up, I'll be wearing sweaters a lot and wanted to find some cheap but quality options from $0 - $100. I will likely buy 3 or 4. I'd love to buy a nicer sweater like Lyle and Scott or Pringles of Scotland, but I'm going to need a few and will need to wear these almost every day during fall + winter, which is why I'm hesitant to buy just one sweater and wear that over and over again.

 

Any suggestions?

 

*I do have 2 or 3 beater sweaters from Old Navy from last year, and I'll probably throw those on here or there, but their clothes kinda suck.

I've been looking for another pair of double monk straps in a lighter colour than my Burgundy ones.
The top pair in the below picture are from Scarpe Di Bianco and are what I crave but they are a bit too much at the moment, and I wondered if you think the bottom pair are an equal substitute?

Save up for a while longer, and get the shoes you really want. In the long run, you'll be happier doing that than you will be accepting a substitute.

(I would add that I'm not familiar with either of the pairs of shoes in question. My advice is based on general principle, and not on the specifics of the situation.)
