post #20191 of 33005

Is it ok to wear brown shoes to a job interview?  I just got out of a university class regarding professionalism in the workplace.  The professor said to always wear black shoes to a job interview.  I have always heard that black or a conservative brown was acceptable.  What's the right answer?

Considering a made to measure full linen chambray or dark grey small herringbone suit for the summer from Luxire. Three-roll-two button, standard lapel width, forward pleated pants. Standard pockets. What would be more versatile, chambray or the herringbone? Would a full chambray suit (brown/white, navy/white, grey/white) even be wearable, or should I go for the herringbone?

Black. Brown would be perfectly fine with a great deal of interviewers, but you don't want to risk it. Black is more conservative, and nobody could ever fault you for a pair of conservative black shoes.

Contact this guy (http://www.etsy.com/people/metroretroapparel?ref=ls_profile). He may do it for you.

 

Or send out the fabric to Gshen (http://www.styleforum.net/t/162958/more-added-13-3-homemade-handrolled-pocket-squares-in-exciting-fabrics/0_30)

1. Is the herringbone linen as well (i got confused because their was never a material specified for the herringbone, just the pattern)?

That's in linen as well, yes.

Go for the herringbone; it will be more versatile.

Depends how much you wish to spend and what type of underwear you want (boxers, briefs, boxer/briefs). Zimerli makes some of the best underwear and their size small fits 26-30 size waists. You can find them a at a few different places online:

 

store.asuitablewardrobe.net/purenessclosedflyelasticwaistbandpant.aspx

http://www.customshirt1.com/ZM252_01Boxers.htm

 

If you want something really cheap, buy any small and throw it in the washer with hot water and then right into the dryer on high heat and they will shrink a few sizes (if the garment is 100% cotton anyway).

Not so true. Most everything made of cotton is pre-shrunk these days, or engineered to only shrink by something like 3%.

That hasn't been my experience either.

80 USD for underwear is definitely out of my price range. My upper limit would be around 25. Is that unreasonable? Also, I've tried to shrink some CK boxer briefs before and they don't really shrink much at all.
