The Fifth Avenue in black is a pretty formal shoe--would look out of place with jeans. With a suit, or a sportcoat with wool trousers and a tie, it'd look great.

Basically, black is more formal than brown--and the darker the brown, the more formal. The less brogueing/details, the more formal. This is both black and has little brogueing, and is thus quite formal.

So sorry to post a few in a row (when my other posts are cleared, that is), but I forgot to mention that I also own these:

Would they be more like the brown casual to formal shoes you were talking about, or are these too loud for formal? Could these be worn with jeans?

 

Like I said... total newb here.

 

Thanks again!

Has anyone in NYC been to LNC post-Sandy? I dropped off a suit on 10/20 and was told I'd be getting a call from him, still haven't heard back, tried calling several times over the weekend with no answer. I'm wondering if maybe LNC is still closed.

do all Zegna Couture coats/suits have a collar tag to show where they are made in? I have seen some on ebay without a collar tag but everything else checks out fine. 

 

was wondering if its a fake or not.

 

Thanks!

How many of you iron a crease into your shirt collars?  I love the really nice roll some people get on their colors with ties, however every time I get my shirts back from the dry cleaner they iron a pretty decent crease in the collar, which makes the collar look crisper but not sure if the roll is the same that way, nor if its good for the shirt. As a side note, I typically hand wash and press shirts myself.

How does this shirt fit? It feels just a little snug around the midsection, but I think it looks OK there so I'm not sure. Are the sleeves a bit too long?

It would be easier to tell if the images showed the shirt tucked in. It's hard to tell when it's untucked.

How tight should a shoe tree fit in a pair of shoes? I get the feeling I'm pushing too hard on the springs to get the trees in.

Sleeves appear long, and the shirt overall appears a bit short. Neither of these are too bad however, as long as the shirt stays tucked in. How does the neck fit when buttoned?

Snug, but not like it's stretching the shoe. Is it just sticking a bit on the leather, or are you really having to wedge it down in there?

I don't know why I did that. Here you go:

The neck is fine. That's the only part I feel good about judging by myself.

Does 1 size down in EEE equal to 1 size up in D? i.e. 10D = 9EEE?

Indeed, the sleeves are a bit long but the fit seems perfect to me. I like it that way. Not too tight but definitely not too wide!
