BTW, there's no need to provide the width to the thousandth of an inch. Your foot's width changes by far more than that all the time. There comes a point where additional significant digits become largely pointless. Like reporting that tomorrow's daytime high downtown is expected to be 54.183 deg. F. (plus or minus 3 degrees).

Thanks for the input...I'll probably be looking for C then because worse comes to worse I can fit an insert in there....I measured this in the evening at a store with a clerk since at that time of day my feet would be fully swelled up or whatever...was right on the cusp of a narrow and regular...she said it was really hard to tell which...but if she had to say, she'd go with narrow...

 

And I won't lie, the second half of your post brought a big smile to my face...partially because I know I've been told by many people I meet that I provide way too much detail for simple things (as I'm doing right now) and partially because the way you said it just was well-humoured... laugh.gif

Whats the consensus on the colour of these EG Chelseas?

How versatile are these going to be? Could they be worn with a suit?

Would have to depend on how you rock it in my opinion...personally for me...I wouldn't have the confidence that I would be able to pull this off when everyone around me has solid black balmorals on (and by confidence I mean I would be thinking "I hope people around me at this formal occassion aren't thinking I'm pulling a faux pas...if you had the confidence you wouldn't be thinking like this in the occasion)...but...if you have a slightly off-black suit and the confidence to go with it...it MIGHT be doable...in my mind.

Well I don't work in an industry where I need to wear black shoes and I only own one pair which I rarely wear.

Might be another option aside from brown.

Oh I thought you meant could they be worn with a suit to a wedding or really formal occassion...if they're for smart casual businesswear...then no problem in my opinion,

Is this TF tie going to be hard to put on? I am thinking about buying it. Thanks!

It will be easy if you know how to tie a tie, hard if you do not, though it's not really a hard skill to learn.

I'm thinking of ordering a couple of OCBDs from Luxire (custom shirtmaker) and I have a question of proper shirt sleeve length.

 

I've googled quite a bit and found that piece of information but I'm wondering about visible shirt cuff in different situations.

 

Shirt length is a problem for me as I'm quite long and can't seem to get the proper sleeve length from RTW-shirts so I hardly show or show a minimal amount of cuff when using a suit. I know that some amount of shirt cuff should be visible in that situation but does the same apply when you are wearing shirts with a sweater over?

 

I often wear OCBDs and throw a sweater over, so I'm asking if I should show shirt cuff also in that situation?

post #19734 of 31221
I usually do. 1/4" to 1/2" is the usual amount.
post #19735 of 31221

Thanks for the quick reply, aravanel. 

 

I will base my casual shirts from Luxire on a PRL OCBD and in that regard I will take into consideration what other people normally do. (lengthening the shirt sleeves)

LOL! My thoughts exactly but I thought maybe he meant "will this go with anything."

Did anybody ever try these Mr. B's from the step up aldo line and pull them off as bucks (they're not suede)?...Apparently has a leather sole...but since its not suede might be hard to clean? It's on sale so...

I suppose you could wear it without violating the non-existent dress code. And unless yours is a rather odd workplace, it's likely to be way better than wearing a green velvet jacket to work.
But most of the time, I'd find it to be a moderately weak choice. Not actually a terrible choice - since I could see how someone might maintain that wearing any blazer or sportcoat is better than wearing none at all. But a choice not quite as good as various other types of blazers or sportcoats. Since a corduroy jacket is about the most casual type of jacket. So, it's a less business appropriate choice, even though I acknowledge that "business appropriate" is a very difficult thing to pin down, when so many workplaces - including the one in question - don't have a dress code (either a formal one, or one which is well understood without having to be explicitly stated).
And really, given that in so many of today's workplaces anything better than jeans and a polo shirt constitutes "dressing up," isn't it silly to worry about which blazers register higher than others in the formality hierarchy? Maybe. (No, I don't think it's silly, but I bet to some medieval scholars it didn't seem silly to contemplate how many angels could dance on the head of a pin.)

Well ofcourse I don't intend to wear a velvet blazer or a velvet suit to go to work. I asked so just because I was wondering that whether it is appropriate that I can wear a velvet blazer to go out in daytime, for example, go for lunch with some frriends :) Now I think can only wear my velvet blazer to go for dinner :D

 

Yes my office may be an odd office in almost people's eyes here. But since I live in a third - world country, there is no dress - code in my firm, even it's a large state company. If I can wear a blouson or jeans and peacoat to go to work, I will wear a corduroy blazer to go to work without hesitance :D

 

P/S: I really prefer dressing a "businuess" suit and a dressy tie to wearing any other clothing like peatcoat, jeans or other type of jacket. But If I did so, I would become an odd white collar worker in my office :D

Is John Smedley still the sweater brand to buy in the segment around 100€-120€ (that's the ebay price)?

Has HSM ever made anything but men's clothing?
