Thanks for the help guys -- still searching for the jacket I want but I am on the right path. As for the boots/shoes, no finds yet.

Hey all, 

first post here, long time lurker. 

I saw a pair of shoes at the store the other day, and they really caught my eye and my feet felt good in them, and for the price, I thought I might give them a try.

I've read that  square toe shoes are a big no-no, but they aren't on the extreme end of squareness, and I just get the feeling they look good regardless. Is it my young, inexperienced eyes that are deceiving me? What do you Shoe Connoisseurs have to say about them?

(btw, I'm a college student, I would probably be wearing them with jeans)

Anyone know the quality level of Harrod's own brand ties?

^ An example. I like the patterns some of them have, wondering where they fall in terms of build/fabric quality.

I've got a picture of a sport shirt here i'm dying to find the brand of. Any chance anyone might recognize the brand or might be willing to help out? It has a light blue/white check pattern, white inner collar, white trim down the button pannel, and bright blue buttons. Anyone have an idea?

Do I have to pay $ 20 or $ 30 for a quality pocket square or are there places online where I can get them for much cheaper?

Somewhat on topic:

 

Looking for a great Tailor in Los Angeles.

 

I have some beautiful Suits and Sport Coats, Kiton, Oxxford Clothes, Attolini, etc.  Some new/unaltered, others which need adjustments.

 

I have tried two Custom Tailors here, but they were just not very good.

 

Any recomendations???

Hand-rolled pocket squares can be found at the Rack for $10-$15 a piece. Though selection is limited as expected.

Looking for a tailor in the Brooklyn/NYC area. I have a few pair of paints I'd like to have tapered and am tired of the dry-cleaning/taylor screwing up my pants. 

post #19379 of 33019

Hey guys,

 

I'm going to a black-tie-ish NYE party. Having attended the event before I know that there's going to be a number of people wearing normal dark suits. In recent years I've always worn my black tuxedo and felt appropriately dressed, but this time I forgot to bring it.

 

The most formal option I have available is a very nice navy two button suit. I guess I want to 'dress it up' but I'm unsure if it's fine to combine it with my normal tuxedo gear (which I have available). Here's all my options:

 

Shirt:

1. Tuxedo shirt with a hidden placket and Kent collar

2. White business shirt with a semi-spread collar

 

Neckwear:

1. Black bow tie

2. Black tie with very subtle white stripes

3. Solid blue tie (with a hue dangerously close to the color of my suit :/)

 

Can you guys please help me pick the most appropriate/formal combination :)

 

Thanks :D

Those are pretty bad for several reasons, not just the square toe.

I have a tie bought from Harrods about 15 years ago. It's great.
