Also, when you say "odd jacket" do you mean like a blazer/sportcoat type thing?

Yes, that's what I mean.

Starting with good shoes sounds like a good idea. I would recommend buying them (or at least trying them on) in person, rather than online, to begin with, if you can. A decent pair of brown derbies maybe, or some brown suede chukkas. It really depends how smart or casual you want to be. Anyway, don't rush it, have a look through the WAYWYN thread, and the MC casual thread - sounds like you need to narrow things down a bit. Good grey wool trousers are a good, versatile trouser too, just make sure they're not too dark grey, and not too smooth or they'll look like they belong to a suit. Flannel or cavalry twill avoid that problem.

What do other people in your office wear? What does your boss wear? They say you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have...

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the brand of shoes i purchased recently.  They have what looks to be a lowercase "ee" written (in writing) on the sock, on the sole and on each metal eyelet.  at the back (heel) there seems to be an "xx" but it could just be a pattern. 



They are clearly high end shoes,

Clearly.

Those look like Clarks desert boots in beeswax. Looks like indigo from the jeans has been rubbing off on them. I use AE conditioner/cleaner to clean mine up occasionally and they look about that color.

What do you guys think of the tips on how a suit should fit in this video?


I mean if it's possible to go by this "guide" when thrifting or going to stores where the employees are not very knowledgeable.

I don't have any dress trousers. Would these from Howard Yount be a good choice for a first pair? Are they considered worsted or woolen? I'd probably go for the classic flannel, but they're sold out in my size.

 

Tasmanian Wool Pants - Medium Gray

100% Tasmanian wool (310 g /10.9 oz)

Those are a worsted (or close to it... can't see the weave closely enough), and would definitely be a great choice for a first pair of trousers.

I've got at most $250 to spend on a peacoat.  I'm a huge fan of 3 button peacoats (6 buttons total) and I was looking for a gray one.  Anyone know of any solid places I could look?

Schott peacoats (just google them) are highly regarded and $300, so a bit above your budget. Not sure if they go on sale but that might be worth looking into. If not, maybe try J Crew.

Ta da. The real thing, no need to spend more than that. They make one with a satin rather than a fleece lining for $265 too, if you can stretch your budget a little and want it, but it doesn't come in gray, though the camel would look nice. Or a 32oz 8 button, unvented version.

Schott would also be an option, but they don't seem to do 6 button.

You could go vintage and buy the real thing. Wont be gray though.

sterlingwear. but make sure you read through the peacoat thread to figure out sizing as they run pretty big

A good strategy is to start on the overdressed/ formal side and then, if necessary, ease off a bit. No-one will disrespect you for doing that. However, if you strive towards office conformity from an underdressed starting point, you will suffer and be scorned. In an office where everyone has a tucked-in shirt, you will always be remembered as the guy who turned up with his shirt flapping around in a sloppy way, like some Californian skate-boarder.
If you try to upgrade from an over-casual initial look, no-one will believe you.

I have the J Crew peacoat and it's great except for two things:

1) I wish it had a vent or two.
2) I got black. Totally my fault - was new to SF at the time still and thought black was the best color foo.gif.

Black is a perfectly appropriate color for a peacoat.

Does anyone know what brand this jacket is? It got stolen the other night. I've had it for so long; I can't remember where I bought it. It had no hood and a square piece in back that hung down. I'm pretty sure it had a grey lion/griffin-looking animal as it's logo, but I'm not sure. A Google image search for "black Express men's jacket" didn't turn up anything like it. This is the best picture I have of it (please disregard my my apparent enthusiasm for fast food smoothies). Can anyone help me? I'd love to get another jacket just like it.
